For a long time I've used my money for shoes but when I looked on amazon they had my bra on sale for $42 (versus the usual $68). So I sucked it up and measured myself according to Shock Absorbers criteria. They reckon I'm a 36 but I knew there was no way that was true. I like a snug fit just not as snug as a 32. So I went with a 34.
In the meanwhile that handy 'what others bought' section pointed out a La Isla Bra. I'd never heard of the brand before but it looks like they make a knock off version of all the popular sports bras. That was also on sale $22 (versus $45) and looked exactly like the Ultimate Run Bra and was made of the same materials. So I ordered that too, $22 isn't too much to lose when you consider the savings for a few of them.
Well the two different brands arrived and looked much the same. Fit the same. I brought the La Isla bra out for a run and it was perfect. Time to order a couple more while they are still on sale. It seems like a trivial thing but I'm excited to be able to get different colored bras. Until now all of mine have been the same boring black ( white = the only other color available in my size).
We'll see how it wears over time!! For now the showdown ends pretty close to a draw but the price tips the scales in favor of La Isla!
