I love the feel of this company. Handful was created and founded by Jennifer, an endurance athlete (who has run the Boston Marathon, woohoo). She has a fabulous attitude that shines through in her company-- strict attention to detail, loves to work hard and sweat hard, but also knows that it's important to take time for yourself and play, have fun, travel, eat, and relax :)
loving my comfy purple Handful Bra
I regularly wear my Handful bras to the gym to lift weights (yes, lifting is my new obsession, more about that in a future post), on runs, to yoga, and all around town for running errands.
Also, it's important to note that the cute cross-back straps fit great under my regular racer-back workout tops....so you don't need any special tops to go with these.
Handful has 2 bra types:
1) the Original
2) the Adjustable
Not your ordinary sports bra, it'll flatter, not flatten!
I have one of each and haven't noticed much of a difference in the way that they fit (probably because I have an average shaped torso) both are very comfortable. I did enjoy loosening the straps of the adjustable at the end of a long day when I was lazing around on the couch for some extra comfort, but in general the straps on the Original fit great too.
They come with removable insert pads so that you can feel comfortable at the gym without (how do I say this) the details of your chest on display...and because of these removable pads, they are also covered by a lot of insurance companies for women who have had mastectomies! Handful is very supportive of survivors :)
Handful has been featured all over the media...Outside Magazine, Runner's World, Backpacker's Magazine, TV news, etc just to name a few.
