If your bust is larger than a 40D I am sure you have a hard time finding a sports bra that is comfortable and functional at your favorite retailer. Over the years manufacturers have started to sale to accommodate customers who want workout style at a variety of prices.
Enell Sport $64
This sports bra fits a variety of sizes and stylish colors. The design keeps your bosom from bouncing, offers great support and is comfortable because of the wide straps and front closure (easy on/off). It’s form and function that allows you to feel comfortable in a variety of aerobic classes with no concerns of bosom spillage.
JcPenny Glamorise No-Bounce Cami Wireless Unlined Sports Bra $39
This cami style feels more modern and pretty with the colorful trim and no print design but does the job in the selection of sizes available. It’s a great bra if you want a design that has no cleavage and instead is a style that you can wear with workout shorts/pants. It has a three prong back closure and more traditional bra straps.
Lane Bryant High-Impact Sport Bra by Amoena $70
There is a reason Lane Bryant has been the go to shop for plus sized women. Example one is the sleek workout bra by Amoena. It’s functional and sexy with wide straps necessary for those looking for high impact workout but stylish with contrasting colors and low plunging back. It is available in black/gray, contrast threading and necessary support with a wide band and back closure with four prongs.

Lane Bryant is excited to announce its participation in Season Two of the Sundance Channel’s critically-acclaimed All On The Line with Joe Zee which starts Friday, November 18th at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT and stars Joe Zee, Creative Director of ELLE, who The New York Times deems, “Fashion’s approachable ambassador”. Joe comes to the rescue of designers in need of a makeover on their business, design or both. As part of this new season, Joe pairs up with New York-based plus-size designer, Qristyl Frazier, to help her create six key looks to present to Lane Bryant executives, Brian Woolf, Group President, and Debbie Martin, the Vice President of Design, for consideration. Qristyl puts it ALL ON THE LINE to try to realize her dream by partnering with Lane Bryant!
You may recall that Qristyl Frazier is a Project Runway alum (Season Six).
Excerpt from Sundance press release (below):
Qristyl Frazier Designs –Queen Latifah, Wendy Williams and Janet Jackson have all worn this “plus-sexy” line, which has been sold in over 30 boutiques in its twelve year history. Featured in Essence and Jet, the buzz and design is on point, but its staff is not. Scrambling to complete last-minute fittings for meetings with major buyers may be the reason they can’t land the big sale that will keep them afloat. It’s always been a rat-race for Qristyl Frazier Designs, but they are desperate to keep up. Joe thinks a buyer’s meeting with Lane Bryantwill be the perfect fit, but it will be up to the staff to make sure they’re prepared.

What a great low key Sunday. I enjoyed meeting Rachel for brunch at the M Street Café in Santa Monica. My friend got her favorite tuna dish and I decided to try the pancakes. I ordered one blueberry pancake (super yummy), a scrambled egg and three slices of their perfectly cooked crispy smoked bacon! Yummy and the perfect portion size to break my fast!
It was so nice to have a perfectly warm day here in Southern California (not too warm or too cool it was just right). The traffic was super easy because of the Emmys Award Ceremony being downtown. So the drive to Santa Monica and even parking was super easy! SCORE one for me! LOL
As you can see I decided to wear something a little sexy so I had on an old pair of Lane Bryant denim capris, with Stuart Weitzman silver thong sandals and a Caslon T-shirt from Nordstrom with stone/crystal detailing around the neck (am so happy I’ve lost enough weight to fit a large t-shirt!!! Yahoo) for a bit of bling and sparkle and a pair of Swarovski crystal Liz Palacios earrings from Nordstrom Rack. So a great mix of feminine sparkly touches with casual flair!
My makeup was GREAT I am so in love with not having to wear glasses after my lasik surgery earlier this year. I’m still not used to my eyes taking center stage on my face. But am of course playing them up with my L’Oreal HiP makeup line and Make Up Forever powder. I had Flashy (318) Bright Shadow Duo with the light color as an allover base and the teal in the crease of my eyes and at the corner, Teal Kohl eyeliner, and blendable blushing crème in coquette (202) a nice soft bright pink color. I had to purchase it on eBay since L’Oreal discontinued HiP Blushes. As you can see my eyelashes are so long that they frame my bright brown eyes perfectly so am using L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara in Black (970) and my favorite HiP color presso lipgloss in 480 Snazzy that made my lips look super sexy! I wanted to cut down on shine so used Black Opal oil absorbing pressed powder in Truffle (14) and Make Up Forever HD Powder to set my makeup.
I than took a long walk to enjoy the sun, cool ocean breezes and for people watching. I decided to have a massage at the Brookstone store in SM since I LOVE the massagers they have at the store. I swear once I get an extra $200 am going to buy one but am scared I’ll never leave my apartment again! Ha
On the way back to my car I decided to stop back at the M Street Café for a chocolate chip cookie with sea salt and a cup of milk for later on tonight. Yummy
