Zensah Sports Bra review and Giveaway Winner!

Happy Friday! Today starts my spring break (perk of working in a school). I'm pretty excited - nothing better than waking up, getting coffee and breakfast and all while in my jammies.

First - a product review. The people at Zensah were nice enough to send me a compression running bra.I got to pick my color, which was more pressure than I thought it would be. I do have their leg sleeves in green so I decided to go with green for the sports bra too. Here's what the website says:

The Zensah sports bra has moisture wicking technology that keeps you dry, even after the toughest workouts. It's available in 10 colors. The innovative athletic sports bra is made with Zensah Fabric which is thermal regulating. This allows you to never feel too hot or too cold, providing increased comfort no matter what athletic activity or sport you are engaged in.

The seamless design prevents any chaffing or discomfort typical of other sports bras. All our bras are made with proprietary Zensah fabric. The sports bra fits all body types. It's able to be used from everything from running to soccer to yoga.

I have huge problems finding a sports bra that fits comfortably and I can afford. This sports bra is $35.99 - not too bad. I've seen them up to $80!! Who can afford that?! I suffer from chub rub, this happens everywhere. Not all the time, but more often where the band of the sports bra goes around my rib cage. I wear a heart rate monitor and that causes some issues too. I was really excited to try this gem!

I wore it on a run around Burke Lake. About 5 miles and a sunny but cool day. I can't say enough good stuff about this bra. First, I LOVED the color. I will NEVER wear it without the protective layer of a shirt, but I love how bright and fun the green is. The Girls were well secured. No bouncing. It was not so tight that I couldn't breath or move around (that's happened a few times to me). No chub rub. I ended up finishing the run, going home, and sitting around outside with the kids. I totally forgot I had the sports bra on until that night! That alone is huge for me. I often get a sports bra that's so tight - to hold it all down - and then I can't wait to get out of it. Not the case with this one. Two thumbs up!!!! I'm hoping to wear it in my first sprint tri this weekend.

You didn't think I was going to model it did you?

Now - two super cute pics:
