Lane Bryant Active: A Sports Clothes Review

I'm still working on 10k Trainer by Zen Labs, started week 2 today, running 90 seconds, and walking 2 minutes. It was difficult, but I powered through with my Francesca Battistelli Pandora Station, and it was in part because of my new workout clothes from the Active line at Lane Bryant.

The week before we left for Jake and Kat's wedding, Kiri and I did some shopping down at the Crossing, and stopped in Lane Bryant. I had no intention of buying anything, but they were having a Buy One Get One Free sale on everything in the store, except clearance, which had an additional 60% off the lowest marked price.

I got a pair of workout Capri Pants for $15, and they're VERY comfortable to run in, travel in, lounge in.


I also got two sports bras, for $44, total (Gotta love those BOGO sales!), which, as a bigger girl with boobs, it's been necessary for running comfortably. I was using a regular bra with a cheaper sports bra doubled over, and it did okay, but I really wanted a legitimate sports bra that would let me run comfortably, without much jiggle.

I got two of the same bra (different colors), and they're VERY comfortable. There's a 4-hook enclosure in back, and the straps are adjustable, and you can change them to match whatever kind of top you're wearing (racerback, regular tank top, etc). They also cover everything up front, so you don't have to worry about popping out (woohoo!). 

The bras are a little hard to close, since they feel like they sit a bit higher than a regular bra, and the underwire feels a little high on the side, but not too terrible. 

It's really nice to have workout gear that works WITH me instead of against me. I hope that having the right gear will help me keep running in at least a little bit of comfort. 

I was not compensated for this review, and purchased the clothes with my own money. I'm just a satisfied customer. :-)
