Title Nine Fit Fest Could Change Your Life

I think it was Oprah who many, many years ago announced that getting fit for the proper fitting bra was life-changing.

It is. Indeed.

That said, bra shopping isn’t fun and exciting and to be honest, most of the time I just want to get out of there.

And then there are sports bras. I did that whole KonMari method this past spring and I threw away so many sports bras.

Too small.

Too big.

Too stretched out.

No elastic.

For the most part my sports bra shopping has entailed a walk through Target, grabbing a sports bra that goes by the size of S, M or L and skid addle.

This is why I was very excited when Title Nine Edina invited me to come in for a fitting.

Did you know that the lack of a good fitting sports bra is often the biggest deterrent to regular exercise? {Myself included}

Did you know that the average American woman wears a 36C but that the vast majority of sports bras are made for A or B cup?

I was excited to get fitted and actually wear a well fitting sports bra {and just a forewarning now that I’ve found one I love I may never wear anything different!}

Molly was my “bravangelist” and she “fit” me last Thursday night. Prior to the event, Title Nine had asked my size, to which my answer was, “umm, the last time I bought bras 18 months ago this was my size…”

Never worry, help is on the way, that did not worry Molly one bit. She was awesome at making me feel comfortble and bringing in several styles that I probably wouldn’t have otherwise tried.

titlenine6One thing I noticed about Title Nine is that while they do carry their own brands they carry lots of brands that I already love and have purchased before from stores like REI. We joked that Title Nine is an REI for women.

I also loved that Title Nine had a small area for kids to sit. As a mom, shopping alone doesn’t happen often so it’s nice to know there’s a place for my kids to hang out while I shop. {I plan on heading back later this week for a new swim suit. EEK!}

Once I had tried a few options, it was time to put them to the test. I consider myself pretty low impact when it comes to exercise, I do a lot of walking with my kids and we also enjoy biking around town but I really don’t run anymore and aside from some at-home work outs I really don’t do much high impact.

I ended up choosing the Tech Athena Sports Bra and like I said above, I love it. I’ve pretty much worn it any chance I can since last Wednesday.

A good sports bra does make me feel like I can be more active. If you’re local and wanting to get fitted, you’re in luck because Title Nine Edina is hosting TWO nights of fittings this week that are totally FREE.

  1. I bought my last sports bra at the beginning of softball season (last year)–so its time for a new one! thanks!

  2. Lori Hansen says:

    I bought my last sports bra off the internet 6 months ago and ended up donating it because it wasn’t comfortable. I wear them often so would be nice to have them fit and be comfortable!

  3. I have never been fitted! I would love to win

  4. I bought a new sports bra a couple of months ago from Target. I would LOVE a professionally fitted sports bra! That would be amazing. I started working out at the beginning of the year and I could definitely use another one!

  5. Liked Title 9 on Facebook

  6. I just grabbed a sports bra from Target LAST WEEK b/c none of mine fit and I’m sick of trying to find ones that do… SIGH!

  7. Liked Title Nine on Facebook.

  8. Definitely a Simplicity in the Suburbs liker/follower….

  9. I have no idea when I bought my last sports bra. I have tried but could not find one that for forever 🙁

  10. I bought my last sports bra a good two years or so before I got pregnant with Ollie and was getting into running – I need a new one because I’m doing a triathalon and well, my “girls” have changed sizes quite a bit after having Ollie!

  11. And I like your FB page 🙂

  12. My last sports bra purchase was made November 2014! In the past 1.5 years I was pregnant, had a baby, and nursed! Now that I am finished breastfeeding I could use a sports bra with a proper fit!

  15. It’s been a few months since my last new sports bra but a FREE one would be awesome!!

  16. Katie B says:

    I just bought one from Old Navy a few weeks ago, but it’s really more of a covering than a supportive piece of equipment. I’d love to wear a supportive, properly fitting sports bra for once!

  28. I bought one 2 months ago, trying to run more. Grabbed a clearance one at target, pretty color but so uncomfortable

  29. Jennifer Essad says:

    it’s been well over 3 years, I can’t stand to wear them I feel like a stuffed sausage wearing them. I also can’t pull them up and over my head to remove them due to limited range with rotating my arm/shoulder. I’d love to see how this brand works for me!

  40. Stephanie Martinson says:

    Bought my last sports bra before my first trimester of pregnancy was over. My daughter is now 14 months old, I don’t weigh the same, my breasts after two kids nursing for a year almost a decade apart, nothing fits. I haven’t been in anything not nursing related in nearly two years.

  41. Michelle B says:

    When you are an avid runner it seems like you never have enough sports bras, especially during the summer. I have only found two bras (the panache and the tata tamer by lulu lemon) that have ever held me tight during my high impact workouts and gosh those get expensive. I bought my last tata tamer March of 2015. Ugh… I need a new sports bra!

  42. Emily Best says:

    I last bought sports bra from Target two years ago and it isn’t as comfortable any more.
