Finding a sports bra that you love can be as elusive and time-consuming as getting a BQ for many runners, ranging from the bust-less to the busty. Whether you want to cover your headlights, avoid uni-boob, or not slap yourself in the face or chafe yourself raw during your next long run or race, a comfortable sports bra is a must.
I first came across the Handful brand at the expo of my first marathon nearly nine years ago. This small, American company, owned and operated by women, claimed to “flatter not flatten” active women. That, along with their cute designs and removable contouring pads enticed me enough to buy one. I still have that bra and continue to run in it, a testament to their durability, and recently I got to try two new Handful bras to review; the original Adjustable Bra and the Y-Back Bra.
