I Really Am a handful ... Are You? Review and Giveaway

Posted Aug 13 2012 9:06pm
For almost all of my life I was not a big fan of bras of any kind... and goodness knows I have tried a zillion different ones.

Sports bras generally don't have adjustable straps and they all seem to be too short and ride up too high on my rather prominent rib cage.  The sleeker I get, the worse this problem gets. I am constantly yanking at them and pulling them down.  For the past several years I wore fitness/yoga tops with built in bras to avoid that situation and/or just put up with the discomfort and annoyance.

Bras that are meant to be worn under clothing have been an even bigger pain for me.  To tell you the truth, I have gone most of my adult life without one!

Many months ago I started seeing reviews and giveaways on lots of fitness blogs about a sports bra called handful .  Everyone that tried and reviewed them RAVED about them... and I wanted in.  I entered many many giveaways until finally, in January this year, I won one.

I couldn't believe that this pretty little garment was really a sports bra.

But, eager to give it a try, I wore it pretty much non-stop for the next several days and really put it through its paces.  I did lots of stretching in it to see if it would move out of place, or ride up, or chafe... and it did none of those things.  The fabric is so soft and so stretchy, and it absorbs perspiration and never irritates my skin.  I fell in love with this bra... handful... and have been telling everyone about it since then at every opportunity I get.

I wore a handful when I ran my first half marathon in May... and I basically forgot I was even wearing it.

The handful bra comes with removable padding for those of you who don't want or need it... and it comes with it's own litle mesh laundry bag.  Such a great idea.

Since receiving my first handful, I have collected a few more... and love them all.  This is the only bra I ever wear now, and it is not only my sports bra, but it is my everyday bra as well.   I have finally found a bra that I am completely comfortable wearing, for hours and hours on end, under every condition I have come up against.

I do launder them in the machine in the mesh bag occasionally, but mostly I handwash them and hang them up to dry overnight. 

I am so excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to win a handful bra for yourself! 
Handful is going to introduce a new line at the end of August so is currently offering this lovely current model at an incredible low price on their web site . They are closing them out at the unbelievable low price of only $18 each...  But I would like to give one to one of you!

So if one of those would work for you then please leave me a comment and tell me which one you would choose if you win.  Leave your contact email address as well.

For a second entry, tweet this "I want to win a @handfulbra from @eatrunsail - " and leave a second comment saying that you did.

The giveaway will close on Friday, August 17th at midnight PDT and I will select and a winner on Saturday. I will contact the winner by email and also announce it on this blog post.

Good luck!
