You’re the reason I went to the gym this morning–to have the experience of wearing my new Anita sports bra fresh in my mind in order to write about it today.  After Tammy’s post on Friday, I would have loved to try the Zumba class, but I’ll save that for when there’s no danger of my breaking out into a paroxysm of coughing (I’m finally recovering from a flu that hit me from nowhere last week).

Instead, I chose the treadmill.  I usually only speed walk, but for you, I ramped the speed up to a 6 and looked down at my chest as I ran:  No bounce.  No movement.  Nothing.  Internally, I could feel some movement, but externally, my boobs were one with the rest of my body.  The company says that this bra is for high level workouts, and they’re right. 

I didn’t really need a new sports bra when I discovered the Anita 5529–I just needed to be shopping for something in order to try out a new lingerie store–but now I’m very happy to have found it.  It has features that my Enell (reviewed here and here) doesn’t have

  • breathable fabric, 
  • absorbent terry lining, 
  • seamless cups,
  • adjustable straps and back, and
  • much less of uniboob mound–there’s actually an indentation between the breasts.

The padded straps are also nice, and here’s an added bonus that I just noticed this morning.  Thanks to the wide band (four hooks in back), absolutely none of my back flab shows when I wear it.  I’m currently on the loosest strap, so I have a lot of wearings ahead.

As for comfort, this bra felt stiff to begin with, but now that I’ve worn it a few times, I don’t notice it at all.  If I go straight from a workout to running errands or working on the computer, however, I do begin to notice it a few hours in.

Stylistically, this bra doesn’t look like anything special, but functionally, it’s great.  It comes in a 32-42G and a 32-38H and costs around $69.
