In the very pit of my heart, I hold a grudge against UnderArmour for discontinuing the Endure sports bra. I bought my first one in 2008 and repeatedly bought at least 2 a year until they changed the model for their high impact bra. I then found one on Amazon for about $40, then one final one on eBay for $29. It was white and sold as "damaged" because it had a small pen stain, and a makeup stain on the back, tags still attached. I can wash off the makeup, and just don't care about the ink. I haven't been able to find any more :(
Eventually I had to find something different, but all the bras nowadays seem to be a lot lower cut. Are we wearing them to support the girls or to look "sexy"? Pfft! Give me a sports bra that comes up to my collarbone!
|Seriously. What is the point of this little knobby stitch???|
A few weeks ago I was at Meijer and browsed through the fitness clothing. For shirts, they're about 1/3 the price of Athleta. Not that I ever buy running shirts, I just felt like looking. I saw their version of a high impact sports bra, looked at it, tugged on the tightness of the band and finally tried it on. The RBX maximum support bra is a zip-up design, which I don't love, but it sells for $26, and this week they were sold buy 1, get 1 half off. Two bras for $42 :D It's not the most flattering looking bra, but again, just don't care! Support and comfort wise, it's equivalent to the big name companies. Overall rating: 8/10. It works and it's cheap. Only available in black or gray, but things like that don't matter to me.
For what it's worth, the UnderArmour Endure rating was a 10+/10. I should have bought them in bulk :)
