Those who know me, know that I love fashion. Unfortunately for the Bear and the pocket book, I have really been getting into fitness fashion lately. A few months ago, I purchased Lululemon’s Energy Bra, and I fell in love! It provides the perfect amount of support for my medium sized chest. Along with the cute design, I have found this bra comfortable and breathable. It does not make me feel smothered like some other bras I have used in the past.
At $48 a pop for the Lululemon Energy Bra, I was super excited to find that Forever 21 carried a surprisingly similar bra! It had me thinking that they might use the same manufacturers, so I bought one in pink and seafoam at $13.80 a piece…
Then I ran 4 miles in the pink Forever 21 bra. During the run, the bra was supportive, comfortable, and breathable. It felt just like the more expensive Lululemon Energy bra. It was all good and dandy until I went to take a shower. To my horror, the pink dye in the Forever 21 bra rubbed off all over me!
Okay, so I may be a little over dramatic, but I was very disappointed the pink dye transferred to my skin. I then tried running in the seafoam Forever21 bra. The seafoam color did not transfer to my skin like the pink had done, so I was happy again!
Verdict! If you have $48 to spend, go for the Lululemon Energy Bra. If $48 is a little rich for your blood (like mine), buy the Forever21 bra. Just wash it two or three times before you wear the pink color!
