Too excited to wait until Thursday to share this one! I've lamented before about Women's sizes and how shitty they are but not about the special personal hell that is a Sports/Athletic store and you are a larger person. There is nothing more depressing than seeing loads and loads of cute little outfits that you can't possibly fit into much less look like a stuffed sausage when actually wearing them.
One of our errands Saturday was making a stop at our local Academy Sports and Outdoors shop since I needed some new protein powder for my smoothies. I've been thinking about getting a few tank tops now, since my arms are starting to get small(er) and that I don't want the ever popular farmer's tan that I would get by just wearing t-shirts or wicking shirts all the time. So I decided to browse around the clothes section. I saw a color and style that I liked so picked up the XL. It was too big! I can't believe it either!
I went back and grabbed the Large size and went back into the dressing room, thinking there was no way.

After stopping at Academy, we knocked out a few more errands and then stopped at Target for our weekly grocery trip. I decided to pop into the Activewear area after mentioning to Chris that I needed/wanted a better sports bra. (I looked at Academy but they were really expensive). And came across this one:
C9 by Champion Women's Medium Support Molded cup bra and I gave it a whirl on my run this morning. The reviews were "iffy" on the website, but I have to tell you, that I LOVE this bra! It kept my girls from jiggling too much when running plus it was super duper comfy. I told Chris, this morning that I want to go and buy all the colors now!
Oh and disclaimer time, Target did not pay me for this review (although they should as much as I shop there!)
