I hope everyone is enjoying their day! Keenan and I enjoyed a wonderful morning at our local park, a nice change of scenery since our house is stacked with boxes!
Well, let’s get right to the good stuff today and talk about Handful! I heard about the company and their infamous sports bras a while ago, so I contacted them to see if they would be willing to let me try one and write a review. They generously sent me one right away. I was so excited when it arrived in the mail, I was like a kid in a candy store!
To learn a little bit more about Handful, check out their new video that they recently completed!
As you can see from the video, Handful’s motto is about being a strong, confident, determined, active, compassionate and adventurous woman. They are about living life to its fullest and giving it your all. The company was founded by Jennifer Ferguson, in Portland, Oregon, a fitness enthusiast and group exercise instructor teaching a variety of classes and competing in several endurance events. After not being happy with traditional sports bras on the market, she developed a sports bra that does everything. It keeps the girls in place, flatters them (not flattens) and can be worn everyday, from workout to weekend. Also, Handful is an approved mastectomy bra, supporting breast cancer survivors during treatment.
After learning about their company and their founder, I couldn’t wait to wear their sports bra for a WOD. First of all, just taking it out of the package, you could tell the sports bra was made with high quality materials. It feel good next to your skin. The bra contains removable pads and since I wanted to have a little shape and lift, I kept them in (although I was curious how the pads would wash up in the washing machine, as other sports bra pads never seem to wash well). Before I put the bra on, I adjusted the crisscross straps to fit, and I immediately fell in love with it once I had it on. It was so comfortable, yet felt so secure. Nothing was going to move through a grueling CrossFit WOD and just as I thought, everything stayed in place as it was supposed to be, while still feeling comfortable!
When I got home and took a shower, I threw the sports bra (with the pads in it) into the wash (in the mesh bag that it comes with) and it washed very well. The pads stayed in tack, not moving an inch, nor getting tangled within the bra (a major plus in my book!). The next time I wore the sports bra was during the day, running errands and playing with Keenan. It still felt good and provided shape and lift, just as it did while I was wearing it for my workout.
I know this is just a sports bra, but I have to say that I absolutely love it! I am always on the look out for a good sports bra without spending an arm and a leg, and Handful finally created it! I highly recommend visiting their site and checking out their sports bras for yourself! They even make them in some fun colors, as well as tank tops with the same bra built in, which I can’t wait to try next!
Last, but not least, another reason why I love Handful is they are in the process of moving all of their manufacturing to the U.S., but they are looking for help. They need to raise $50,000 in order to help with the new manufacturing, packaging, and branding. You can help by checking out their Crowd Supply Campaign here!
Handful was so generous that they offered to send one lucky reader a sports bra of their own!!
