Sports Bra MEGA-Extravaganza Review + Giveaway {closed}

Enell, Shock Absorber, Moving Comfort, Panache.

What do all these companies have in common?  They make fantastic sports bra for women, meant to keep *the girls* in place- supported, comfortable and stylish!

Let’s take a look at each one, shall we?

ENELL SPORT

The ENELL SPORT’s patented design eliminates bounce while providing superior support and comfort. Made from a LYCRA® Spandex blend (90% nylon/10% LYCRA®). The SPORT is a critical piece of athletic equipment that answers the prayers of well-endowed athletes.

Enell Sport

I have to be honest, when I first saw this bra, I was a little intimidated.  It literally looks like a shield of armor for your breasts.  It has hooks all the way up the front and the straps are super wide.  The back was not your traditional *Target sports bra* back.  I put it on and again was struck by the sheer number of hooks I had to fasten together.  I adjusted the girls and got them in the right place.

At first, the bra was a little tight but I pulled down on the lower band and it felt a little better.  I went for a run in it and the girls did not bounce…..not once, not ever.  In fact, this sports bra was SO comfortable that I forgot it was even there!  I thought the thickness of the bra would be a problem with the amount of sweating I do when I run, but this bra has special wicking properties (like most of the high end sports bras) and I did not any more than I usually do.

Overall thoughts:  Highly functional, comfortable and extremely supportive.  I LOVE THIS BRA.

Available in 5 colors, sizing from 32C- 52DD (Enell *Find Your Fit*). Retails for $64.00

This sports bra is lighter weight than some of the others but it still gets the job done- keeping the girls supported and in the right place, not flopping around.  I did find that I had to go up in band size (and down in cup size to get the correct, comfortable size) for me.  I am normally a 34DD BUT for this particular bra (and a few others), I have to adjust the band size or else I feel too constricted and like my blood flow is being cut off!  Once I got the right sports bra size (36D), I was off and running.  This bra supports the breasts, is comfortable while I run and exercise and has unique adjustable, back straps plus an upper back hook and eye clasp- I had never seen a back closure like this on a sports bra before.  The front straps are wide as well.

Overall thoughts:  My favorite thing about this bra (besides the comfort, the support and the sleek look) was how lightweight it is compared to some of the others!

Available in two colors.   Sizing from 30A-38F (they do sell other types of sports bras that are for larger sizes). Retails for $79.00.

Also, why should you wear a sports bra?  Shock Absorber tells you WHY!

MOVING COMFORT

JUBRALEE:  Jubralee has it all—support and comfort in a flattering design. She was rigorously tested in our biomechanics lab to ensure the best support and fit possible.

• Seam-free interior molded cups for support and shape
• Subtle-contour cups give shape, modesty and maximum moisture transfer with a seamless look
• Interior front yoke
• Hidden side and under bust support
• Shaped front adjustable straps with concealed hook-and-loop closure
• Adjustable soft padded back closure

Jubralee1Jubralee2

Bari had a chance to try out the Jubralee and this is what she had to say about it:  I tried the Jubralee bra on my run this morning. It runs really small compared to the Juno but because it’s like a regular bra it was easy to put on/off. Girls didn’t move & no chafing on my 3 miles that I could tell.

Available in 9 colors. Sizing from 30B-44DD. Retails for $54.00.

JUNO

Gravity-defying, super-supportive technical features combine innovation and moderate contouring in a powerhouse racer-back bra. Advanced, functional features in a flattering style.

• Seam-free interior molded cups for support and shape
• Moderate-contour cups give shape, modesty and maximum moisture transfer with a seamless look
• Shaped front adjustable straps with concealed hook-and-loop closure
• Bonded material for less bulk, and smooth, no-chafe comfort
• Front and back mesh zones to keep you cool

Moving Comfrot Juno (Front)

I love my Juno bra and found it easy enough to put it on although getting it off took a little finesse!  Once I figured out that I could undo the shoulder straps before taking it off (and putting it on), I was A-OK.  The Juno is super-comfortable, supportive and gave my bust a nice shape- no uniboob here.

Overall thoughts:  I love love love the front adjustable straps- they allowed me to get in and out of my Juno without contorting my body in weird shapes.  Also, I was able to easily adjust the straps to give my breasts the right support.  And, the price of this sports bra is great for those of us who are sensitive to price : ).

Available in 4 colors. Sizing from 30C-40DD. Retails for $56.00.

Moving Comfort Sports Bra Fitting Room- includes info on Anatomy of a Sports Bra, Biomechanics, Expert Fit Tips, and a Sports Bra Finer. Pretty awesome informtion!

PANACHE SPORT

The Panache Sports bra offers the ultimate support for any sport, a firm favourite due to its supreme support and comfort whilst exercising. Available from a B-H cup in a choice of colours including Black, White, Grey & now in a new fashion raspberry colourway.

Panache Sport

This sports bra arrived on my doorstep in a BOX.  When I opened it, the sports bra was literally STANDING UP, all by itself.  That is how much support it has!  Again, I was intimidated by this fact and that it too, looked like a shield of armor for my ta ta’s- I was concerned that if it had that much structure with no warm body in it that it would feel like cardboard when I had it on.  Alas, my fears were unfounded and this bra is totally comfortable.  The support is DEFINITELY there, with wide front straps, adjustable back straps, cup moldings, and a triple hook closure.

Overall thoughts:  LOVE!  This bra by far was the prettiest one I tried- absolutely beautiful.  I wore it once, washed it, and wore it again as soon as it was dry.  My breasts did. not. move, not even as I did jumping jacks!

Available in 4 colors. Sizing for 28DD-40GG. Retails for $68.00.

    I love the Enell, but the Shock Absorber is cool — it looks like what Katniss would wear in the arena!

  • Jennifer Bennett

    That panache one is pretty. They all look great.

  • Lauren B

    I have only owned moving comfort bras and I love them! Goes on like a regular bra so they aren’t squashed and I love the netting over the top to keep me in. For a woman with DD chest these have served me well!

  • http://emilythegood.blogspot.com/ emily@emilythegood.blogspot.co

    Ooooh, I really need a new sports bra- or four. They all look like bras I’d like to try out.

  • Jessica S.

    This is awesome contest…it’s like you read my mind! I’m actually trying to find the perfect sports bra right now, as all that I currently have just allow for a bit too much movement. I’m super interested in the Panache one! It looks full of support without being super constrictive and hopefully it feels the same way it looks!

  • Ann

    I would love to try the Panache in that beautiful raspberry color. I have been losing weight and need something a little smaller than the bras that I currently have. :)

  • Karen Baldwin

    I love this post! The Target bras are just not doing if for me anymore…Thanks!

  • Caty B

    The Enell got me through two half marathons without neck/shoulder pain. I love them! If their sizing isn’t quite right, you can order a custom one from them for only $15 more (or at least that was the fee when I did it in 2009). I was inbetween their sizes, so being able to get a bra custom fit for me without paying an arm and a leg was amazing!

  • Courtny

    I love the Juno

  • Keely

    I would love to try any of these! *the girls* would absolutely love it since they are form a unaboob right now!

  • Nicole

    That shock absorber one looks amazing!

  • Bobbi Sharp Wingard

    ENELL SPORT looks like the easiest to get into when you have big girls. ; )

  • Nicole Nichols

    The Panache looks great for me – I love the raspberry color, and the fact that she said the girls didn’t move during jumping jacks. I jump rope, and in the sports bras I have now I will turn away from everyone before I do them!!

  • Sunny

    Awesome giveaway! I’ve been wanting a Moving Comfort bra forever!

  • Yvonne Wilson

    I like the Enell….I heard it’s a great sports bra for plus size women.

  • Manasa

    I love the run top bra. I love running and it looks perfect!

  • Missy

    I love bright colors and comfort and hate wires and clasps, I wish I had smaller perky boobs just to be able to wear a pull over the head kind of bra. Hate the feeling of clasping on a bullet proof vest ! Most are so ugly !!

  • Margaret VanBruggen

    I love the enell and the shock absorber, being a DDD its hard to find sport bras that are comfortable and supportive, most of mine are not supportive and running is hard to do when you have to hold your chest from flopping in your face. LOL

  • Susan T

    I have an Enell which is great but so many hooks. It really keeps me in. I had the Panache and returned it. I think I got the wrong size and would love to try it again! The others look great but alas too small.

  • Renee

    I love them all but I think the Shock Absorber is the one I like best. It looks like it can hold firmly and that is what I need. I so need a new sports bra. Thanks for showing me what is out there…now to budget for it!!!

  • lizandjusguy

    Entering for my Mom who needs crazy support! Thinking the Panache Sport :)

  • Betsy

    They all look so much better than the Old Navy ones I currently wear ;-)

  • Amy B

    I like the Enell, but not so crazy about the hooks. But it does look like it has great support. The Panache also looks like it would do the trick!

  • TammyC

    I like both the Shock Absorber and the Panache.

  • Gina Ciuffetti-Taylor

    Juno for sure…I don’t need quite that much support. It looks the least straight-jackety. :)

  • Margo C

    I learned a long time ago that the right bra makes all the difference and I am willing to shell out $$ just to get one that is comfortable and functional. I recently discovered Motion Comfort bras and WOW. I am now in the hunt for some new ones as the others are needing to be replaced. Will certainly look at some of these others. Thanks for the “insider tips”. It is always great to read reviews from those that are blessed in the bust area :) I love that raspberry color!

  • Rachel Goldman

    They all look great. I am in major need of a good sports bra.

  • Rachel Goldman

    I think I would want to try the jubalee first.

  • Lisa

    The Panache Sports bra has my eye… It is so hard to find anything that looks even remotely pretty but still has support.. Also the dreaded uni-boob this looks like it would alleviate that problem, And that would be a miracle for bigger breasted woman…

  • Sarah O.

    I would love to try the Jubralee or the Juno. They both look comfortable.

  • Bree Bunting

    I like the Juno, I think that would be really great for me!

  • Jessica

    I like the Juno for price and the straps seem like a cool idea.

  • Michelle B

    Who does not need an amazing bra for running? Would love to be supported with just one bra!!

  • Kaye Stone

    I like the shock absorber because I am larger busted and it seems like it comes in a size that I need and would offer needed support.

  • Laura

    I have tried the Enell….it was very handy for running when I was breast feeding my son, but alas, it doesn’t fit anymore since I have stopped breast feeding !!!

  • Jenni

    I’ve been eying the Shock Absorber for awhile, great to see your review on it.

  • Ang

    I would love to try the Panache…I just discovered Enell and it is amazing but when you’re a DD, you dream of a sports bra that doesn’t look like a medieval torture device.

  • Stephanie Ann

    i like the JUBRALEE bra, it seems to fit my lifestyle the best!

  • Alysha

    Panache Sport looks so awesome!

  • kateb

    I need a new sports bra desperately!

  • Joey

    I like the Juno bra. its pretty.

  • Tessa

    I love Moving Comfort bras!!! They are comfortable and don’t even feel like a sport bra. Plus they keep the girls contained!

  • Libbi

    Moving Comfort or the Panache…simply because they’re the “cutest”! I like to look good when I workout…but I also like the support of a GREAT bra!

  • Wendy Cayemberg

    The Enell look great! I’ve been changing my families diet to more organic & RAW foods. Next is adding in more activity.

  • Elizabeth

    I would love the Enell. It looks very heavy duty for my 34 DDD’s!

  • Kathryn Renz

    I love Panache’s regular bras, and I imagine their sports bras are just as comfortable and supportive. I would LOVE any of them though! The girls need some help! ;)

  • Lori

    Since just starting exercise and the “C25k” I could really use this sports bra. :)

  • http://from-my-life.blogspot.com/ Kristin

    Okay, I’m vain, but I love the Juno because of the color!

  • Rachel DeVaughn

    i love moving comfort bras b/c they are great quality and feel great!

  • DebbyH

    I would love to try Enelle. I heard so much about them, but cant afford one! I love the coverage!! AND I prefer my bras to be front closing!

  • Natalie Y

    I usually have a hard time finding a sports bra that is stylish yet supportive enough for the girls and that is why I think the shock absorber run bra is amazing.

  • jaimemckee

    I’ve heard SUCH great things about Moving Comfort, but have never tried them. Would love to try them sooner, than later. ;)

  • flipflop68

    I was looking at the Jubralee…love the style and looks like it will support me just fine!!! Would love to go for a long run with that..

  • Sylvia Harrington

    Moving Comfort. I love them!!

  • Teri Wood

    I like the Enell since it closes in the front. Much easier to put on a bra that has such a snug fit.

  • TarheelSugar

    I want the Shock Absorber… I’m on the large size and watched my darling’s fly up and down today thinking “damn! I need a new sports bra that doesn’t let them move AT ALL!!!”

  • charpenette

    The Jubralee. It’s pretty and not padded!

  • Lane

    I would like the moving comfort one for me, looks the most practical.

  • Jess

    I really need some new ones!!! Not a fan of making body glide a necessity due to over wear… Here’s to hoping I can enjoy the beauty of those bras.

  • Melinda

    I have the Penache in black and white. LOVE this sports bran

  • LMM831

    Juno. The support is it for me.

  • Meegan

    I think the panache one looks comfortable. Im sure I could get good use out of any of them. :)

  • Andrea Griffin

    I think I would like the shock absorber. I like the fact that is has wide straps and opens fully for easy on and off. I have one now that is cross straps and it is difficult to get in place and takes a lot of energy to get on and off

  • Nikki Walton

    They all look and sound better than what I am using now. It has been a long time since I bought a new bra and have had trouble finding one that fits since my second son was born.

  • Kathryn Haroldsen

    i am so ready to stop wearing two sport bras! Any of these new bras would definitely help me as I need to keep the “girls” in place!

  • mendingjen

    I LOVE my enell but sadly I have gained some weight and it currently is too tight.

  • Lynn

    The Juno an Panache sound the best to me. I would love to go for runs and do plyo work without bouncing around! Plus I think these two have the prettiest colors. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Nikki

    I love the juno one. I really need a new sports bra.

  • Carrie Symes

    I so need some new sports bras!!!! I totally love the color of the Panache!!

  • Christi in MA

    The Enell is the best by far but it is so ugly and hard to put on. I’d love to try the Shock Absorber because it is in my size but not as “industrial” looking as my Enell.

  • Tania Klanica

    I need new sports bras BAD! Would love to win!

  • Sara

    Love the sounds of all of them, but it looks like the Enell is the only one that comes in my size (one other one did, but the reviewer stated they ran small, so I’m doubtful it would fit!)

  • Suzie

    I like the review of the Enell but the Shock Absorber appeals to me most. I like the look and hooks.

  • Rina

    I only have tried moving comfort. I would like to try the panache.

  • Michele

    Panache Sport…I need major support!

  • Karin VanZant

    Panache Sport – stylish and supportive :-) Just like I am

  • Elizabeth

    I love the Panache sports bra! I have one and just got another in the mail today!

  • Amy

    The Shock Absorber sounds the best to me. I like the lines of it and it looks super supportive.

  • rachel

    I’ve heard good things about Juno, so I’d try that!

  • jordan

    I love the jubralee simply because you get the cute look with the maximum support

  • Suzanne Terry

    I’m loving that Enell. The colors are so vibrant and I love how supportive it sounds!

  • Noelle

    I love the panache. Call it brand loyalty or a love of good design, but I want one.

  • Kaycee Breeck

    I love the ENELL SPORT because im of the bigger bust and i hate bra clamps on the back side they dig into me and i hate underwier because it digs me to i need suport for my 36ds:)

  • http://dreamingofperfect.weebly.com/ Hannah J

    I like the jubralee, it’s pretty

  • Steel Springs

    I like the Juno bra. I’ve worn one Moving Comfort bra in the past and I really liked it. The mesh panels in the Juno sound nice for hot weather and I love wearing tops or bras with a racer back.

  • Wehaf

    The Jubralee looks most comfortable to me; since I don’t need mega-support, I think I’d like that one best.

  • AmandaSakovitz

    the Jubralee because of the side support

  • Thomas Murphy

    I think my wife would love the Juno bra because of the color

  • Simply Sunshine

    I would love to win the
    Panache Sports Bra. It looks so comfortable and stylish. It is so hard to find a good sports bra these days.

  • http://www.gymrepublic.com/ Thomsan
