Our favourite sports bras for running and cross training from boobydoo

We were so excited to have been selected as boobydoo Ambassadors. I first came across boobydoo when I attended the BBC equality event in September. I got chatting to the lovely Charly who happened to be their brand manager and the more she told me about the brand the more I thought it was definitely a brand that we’d love to get involved with at runtheworldMCR.

boobydoo provide women with the support they need to tackle their exercise goals without having to worry about their boobs. They have all the sizes you could wish for, offering plenty of support and they even have supportive nursing bras (very handy for post Parkrun and MumWod) which I know I’ve chatted to lots of our breastfeeding mums about, I tried the cake maternity nursing sports bra.

So why is it so important to have a perfectly fitted sports bra? When a woman exercises, her boobs move a lot. In fact, they can move up to 14cm! boobydoo strive for the no bounce policy, to keep boobs comfortable, happy and secure when we work out.

I’ll be the first to admit to never getting a sports bra fitted properly so I was really interested to learn boobydoo offer a virtual bra fitting service where they can help guide you with sizing. I had my virtual session which I found really helpful. I was talked through the importance of a good fit and the different options based on the exercise I do most, currently running and CrossFit. Before the session I’d also used their quiz tool which gave me an idea of the best bras for me. I loved both the Panache Sport Ultimate Sports Bra which comes in lots of colours and the Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra but I finally decided on the Panache based on personal preference, these are the top sellers for runners. You can find your perfect fit here.

What I like about the Panache ultimate sports bra from boobydoo is the fit, I didn’t experience any discomfort when exercising and felt really well supported as it has the optional J-Hook and the adjustable straps allow you to customise your level of comfort and support, the cushioned shoulder straps also offer extra comfort.

Lydia selected the Anita extreme control sports bra, here’s why;

“I asked boobydoo to find me a bra that wasn't padded, with a small chest I find that these are uncomfortable and hot. I went for the Anita extreme bra because it went on like a normal bra with padded straps. It has plenty of support, no padding and comfortable straps - perfect for running and high intensity workouts like CrossFit. I loved my boobydoo experience, it was like a match maker but for bras - what more could you ask for”

Exercise-induced breast discomfort is a serious health issue, as it can act as a barrier to participating in physical activity, depriving women of the associated health benefits of being physically active. Sports bras are proven to reduce bounce by up to 83%, and yet 41% of women still don’t wear a sports bra to exercise, and 80% are wearing the wrong size bra to start with.

We hope along with boobydoo we can help you find your perfect sports bra while we are ambassadors, they have kindly given us a 15% discount you can use on full price items RUNMCR15 and their clearance section is also worth checking out and they have lots of black Friday offers. Let us know if you have any questions and we can feed them back to the wonderful boobydoo team.
