Are any of you like me wherein you wear workout clothes while out, wear your sports bra at work, or keep a pair of sneakers in the back seat of the car or trunk? I will be working as a fitness instructor next year so that’s going to be all the time, but right now I am just a regular schmo’.

I’ve been wearing my sports bra almost on a daily basis these days, because it’s a lot more comfortable than my regular bras. I don’t really wear push up bras anymore, because those things hurt, leave red half moons on your chest, and are not good for your breast tissues. There have been anecdotes from women claiming that their backs got better (including myself) and breasts had more room to grow when they stopped wearing push up bras. I certainly did see some growth after wearing the right bra (see my previous post)!

As far as preventing the twin peaks from going down south, that’s where you wear the right sized bra with good support—and also,  not run for a long time. In fact, just stop that activity altogether, especially if you’re a woman. I don’t run, but I am in great shape. You can get cardio and lose weight with other methods. More on that later!

As much as you’d like to wear workout clothes to work, so you can head to the gym right after work, you just can’t because of your job’s dress code. If you don’t frequent the gym, some of you belong to a job that require a lot of moving around but still need to look presentable. It would be just wonderful to have clothes that had the below specs:

Here’s a company I found whose philosophy I find on point with addressing the problem I mentioned above— Mary Michael Designs. They’re new, so they need a bit of support via their Kickstarter to make their goal of making clothes fit for work and working out (or just sweating at work) a reality. The specs above are from their website, so their clothes would be a good solution for the problem of workout vs work clothes. I love startups, don’t you? Help them out and get clothes by them! Below is a video about them:

    Beautiful, don’t you know you need to sit like a lady. hehe.
    I never liked sports bras for some reason. Oh I know why, they made me flatter than I already am. :: sigh :: So yeah, I don’t own one. I wear a regular bra when I work out.

    Hi Victoria! A regular bra hurts me working out, because it has an under wire. Also, since I work out often, I can’t afford to wash my regular bras all the time, because they can break easily and are very delicate. Sports bras are sturdier and are basically just made of cotton and garter, with no frills (lace, ribbons, etc.).

    About sitting: Yes, I realized how I looked after I put the photo up! I was using the exercise machine for your thighs, so that was how you start it!

    I agree with you about the bras!
    Push up bras are so uncomfortable so I wear sports bras 90% of the time.
