Tuesdays on the Run: Running Bras

Erika @ MCM Mama Runs hosts Tuesdays on the Run with April @ Run the great wide somewhere and Patty @ My no-guilt life

This week’s topic is Running Bras.

This is one topic, being small-busted, that I don’t have to worry about. (But it’s not that easy to find a nice bra for us either.)

I like ones that are light, breathable and have padding.

My favorite bra is from Handful:

It costs $48.  I only have one and I wash it and then wear it again. I save it for races because it is so comfortable.


My second favorite is one from Skirtsports:

Everyday Active Bra

I only wear mine under a shirt

Speaking of SkirtSports, don’t forget about their

This year SkirtSports is celebrating by kicking off breast cancer awareness month early and encouraging women to learn about and support two of their great assets – their boobies! Their Virtual Boobie Run entry includes a free voucher for one of their amazing sports bras (for cups A to DD). You pay $60 and get $70 to use on their website.  You can’t beat that!!

You can register HERE.

A friend of mine gave me her Lululemon bra because it was too small on her.

bitty bracer bra – I don’t think they sell it anymore but it similar to the Free to Be bra

It’s a little big on me but it’s wearable.


On training days, I just wear a cheap sports bra that I’ve bought in Walmart or Target.

Not as comfy or durable but it does the trick.


Happy Running! Do you have a favorite bra?

  1. I’m also small, but I like Champion (not the ones at Target, btw) for running. I do have a handful bra I bought a long time ago but that’s not supportive enough for running for me. And it’s a M so actually too big now . . .


  2. Small here too…TJ Maxx and Marshalls have great selection for all sizes (daughter is larger than her mama) at really great prices! For some stupid reason I bought 2 really nice white ones – that have turned totally yellow from sweat. Good thing I always wear a shirt over them!


  3. Tiny girl here too and my favorites are the cheap Champion bras from Target, but sadly they have changed them and adding padding. Ugh! I also like the Energy bra from Lululemon but they are expensive.
