Let's talk about breast's baby....

(singing to the tune of 'Lets talk about Sex, Baby by Salt 'N' Peppa)

Let's talk about breasts baby

Let's talk about you and me

Let's talk about all the good things and the bad things that maybe

Let's talk about breasts

Let's talk about breasts for now to the people at home or in the crowd

They keep coming up anyhow

They bounce, flounce, and try to escape

Cuz that bra ain't gonna stop them

Now we talk about breast on the blogs and tube

Many will know anything goes

Let's tell how to keep them trapped

and how they should be

How they should be two boobs not one

Those who think it's dirty have a choice

OK, that's enough of that. Trust me I should not sing! Unless you are drunk then I sound like Pink!

A good bra is important... more important than a good pair of running shoes. Today I must implore my comrades in breasts. Large breasts. Listen, I like a friendly wave while running as much as the next gal, but really I prefer you use your hands to wave hello. Oh, don't look at me like that. You know when you see a woman running and you want to run with her to the closest running store to shell out the dough for a good sports bra. She looks like she is holding a pack of squirrels in her bra, fighting to get out. But here's the thing... running stores... we love you. You provide great shoes, cute running clothes, and gels galore. You suck in the bra department. Now I say that as a friend. It's great if you have a smaller chest. The handful bra is the best freaking bra for A/B cups. The best! But why when you get into C/D/DD you end up with iron maiden bras from some medieval time? Really. Why can't we have cute bras, too? Heck yeah, I want it all. Support, comfort, and cuteness! Is that so wrong? NOPE!

So I found this fantastic company that makes sports bras for the well-endowed runner. I present Kalyx bras.

This picture was taken by my 5 year old, Alexis.
I'd say ignore the stretch marks, but I don't really care. I had four kids and am proud of those stretch marks. (Sticking tongue out!)

The back of the Kickstart Bra

But back to the boobs.

I measure a 34C or 34D in some bras for 36C or 36D in other bras. Drives me nuts, why can't they all measure the same? Same thing with pants. Whoa... rant coming on... must focus on breasts... OK

This Company Kaylx, makes amazingly cute bras. They were kind enough to send me a bra to test and well, I had to order another. I am so happy I did. Today I am going to provide a review on the kickstart bra.

Here's what they say about the Kickstart bra:

Athletic Training Bra - the "Kickstart" sports bra

Get Sweaty, Betty in this cute comfort bra...also great for Pilates, yoga, rollerblading and fun in the sun!

Wonderful teen bra, great for California girls, too!

Now here's what I think:


This maybe labeled for lighter activities, but I disagree with that limitation. I used this bra for a workout in the House of Pain, yoga, Pilates, and for a 4 mile HARD run. I did 1/4 mile pick ups at 6 min pace and my boobs stayed put! It was a warmer day and I loved how freaking cute the back of the bra is. I work hard on my back and want to show it off. Now granted I wasn't thinking about the bra during my run at all. To me that means a fantastic bra. If you don't notice it and you can still breathe....hey folks, we have a winner.

So the next important question is, did I have to fight my way out of the dang thing? Oh, you know what I'm talking about. It's the half pee pee dance half drunken monkey act we do to get out of a sweaty sports bra. Listen guys... jock strap is a walk in the park to take off. Trying to take off a sweaty sports bra makes a mammogram feel like a cup of tea. (OK, nothing makes a mammogram feel easy, even 6 shots of gin. I'm just saying) I was able to take it off with ease. I highly recommend this bra for lifting, yoga, Pilates, and running. I might not recommend it for you lucky gals blessed with Full D's or DD's, but they have bras for you. (More on that in the next review)

The other bonus to this bra uni-boob. This is nice to have cleavage alley open to ventilate. For some reason sports' bra manufactures think smashing the boobs together makes for a 'secure' package by making them immovable. Yeah, guys it doesn't work that way. Sometimes segregation can be a good thing. Let's also admit that the Kalyx is a flattering bra. I don't feel like my gals are waving to everyone I pass.

So if you gals are looking for a cute, comfortable bra, check out Kaylx. I am going to be ordering this Kickstart bra in the two other colors because I LOVE IT. Now go to their web site and tell them Angela sent you! Laugh and run on, my friends!
