Women who have large breasts have issues running. If they don’t have the right bra, they will get chafed and feel uncomfortable. I know. I’m one of them. So, when I met the folks at Brooks Running at The Running Event in Austin, I got excited. Will this be the bra for us large women?

Here’s my review of the Brooks Unicup Racerback Bra:

Putting it on

The Brooks Unicup Racerback bra goes over your head. It has a racerback (criss-cross) in the back and has slight padding in the front. The bra is breathable. My only issue with the bra was trying to close the latch in the back.

Just coming back from a run wearing the Brooks Bra

Other bras I have used in the past were not racerback so I didn’t have an issue closing the latch. I would hook it in the front and turn it around and put my arms through it like I would a “daily bra.” However, since it went over my head, it took me a few more moments to make sure the hook catches the eye.

Once it was in place, it was good to go!

Taking it to the test

I ran nearly three miles around Lake Eola in Orlando wearing the bra. I found it particularly comfortable and I didn’t sweat as much as I usually do. The other thing I loved about the bra was that it held me in place. I didn’t bounce around and had no issue with chafing!

Would I buy another Brooks Unicup Racerback? I definitely would. If you can get over closing it in the back, you will absolutely love this bra!

Happy running!
