Title Nine X Brooks Run It All Strappy Bra Review – The Perfect Bra
It’s tough finding an item that does it all, and I’m not just talking about bras. A ski shell that is both breathable and protective, running shoes that can handle the road and trails, even foods that taste good and are good for you… life is hard, ya know?
So when it comes down to bras, I have only found a few that I’ll wear. It’s mandatory that these versatile items can handle skiing in the backcountry, going to work and taking on the gym… all in the same day. They need to keep the ladies from getting too hot, not totally flatten your chest and also be supportive. It’s a high demand, I know, but I have high standards and expect that they are met. And thanks to Title Nine and Brooks Running, I have found a sports bra that doesn’t require me to settle: the Run It All Strappy Sports Bra.
I have worn this bra to Jiu-Jitsu classes, skiing, out and about and to work, just to name a few. It has become my go-to and I get kind of sad when it has to go into the laundry basket (is that weird?). It is a pullover style bra made of 100% polyester; 63% nylon/37% spandex. The material feels different than any other bra I have owned but has pleasantly surprised me. It is stretchy enough to easily pull over my head but not so stretchy that the structure collapses. The fabric wicks moisture and it features small ventilation holes in high-heat areas such as your back and on the front of the band.
It is a wireless, padded bra with contoured cups to give you natural support throughout your day. The cups themselves are padded which means there are not separate pads that will fall out in the washing machine.
This is a huge perk for me and I’m pretty psyched about this feature. It is available in 32, 34, 36 and 38 band sizes but is only available in the A/B cup size. This has been the perfect size for me. There is no chafing at all and it doesn’t shift around. The straps are split in half to contour to your shoulder and it adds a stylish touch to the piece. The seams are totally flat and I’ve had no issues with the bra digging in under a backpack or during activity.
Bottom Line: If you’re looking for a bra that really can do it all, you have found it. I always like to critique the products I review and add in what I think the company could have done better, but in this case, I have no issues with the bra. I looked far and wide for something to improve but honestly, it’s the perfect bra.
Growing up snowboarding and hiking in the bitter cold winters and humid summers of northern Vermont, Eliza learned how to beat up gear and quickly became infatuated with new technologies. After moving to Colorado in 2015 to pursue a degree in recreation and outdoor education at Western Colorado University, her passion for the outdoors grew exponentially. Soon after, she picked up rock climbing, telemark skiing, backpacking, canyoneering, and is slowly learning to love rafting. Through these learning processes, Eliza began to understand the importance of the right gear and hopes to share her experiences and knowledge with others through Engearment.
Now working for Beacon Guidebooks as the ‘Wearer of Many Hats’ (yes, that is her official title), Eliza has learned the ins and outs of the outdoor industry. She has also worked on marketing teams, as a photographer, media coordinator, outdoor instructor and as a wrangler. She is especially excited to encourage other women in the outdoors and is an advocate for diversity and inclusion.
