the best sports bra for big busts and other favorite workout gear


yes, I am talking about gear for big busts again! first, it was my secret to wearing backless tops, then it was my favorite strapless bra, and now, it’s my most recent discovery: THE.BEST.SPORTS.BRA. (for big busts.)

I haven’t found any fashion or lifestyle bloggers that do high-impact exercise and have a big bust (like, D+++). no one talks about having a big bust and being an athlete, like, ever. it’s a bummer, because it makes the resources very limited for us with big busts who like to run, jump, and do other activities that stress our chests.

alas, I’m here, sharing my new secret (literally, I just ordered this bra off Amazon, so I’m super excited – I just bought FIVE more!)

The best sports bra for big busts is… The Panache Underwire Ultimate Sports Bra!

seriously, guys. not to get too graphic, but your bubbies won’t budge in this bra. it’ll keep them perky, not squished like a uni-boob (I’ve been there – oh, have I been there) and it doesn’t chafe AT ALL. the straps are supportive and don’t dig into your skin, the fabric is sweat friendly, and they have some fun colors (like I said, I bought five off Amazon.)

I went on a 4.6 mile run yesterday with this bad boy on and I felt like I had breast implants they stayed in place so well! I can’t wait to do my HIIT routine that includes jumping jacks with this bra – my life has changed.

workout gear favorites

aside from the Panache sports bra, here are a couple of my recent finds that have made my workouts that much more pleasant (after all, new gear = better workouts, right?!)

[One / Two / Three / Four / Five]

Athleta 7″ high-rise spandex shorts: they’re high-rise, need I say more? but really, these high-quality spandex shorts will become your comfiest pair of workout shorts. I like to run in spandex shorts, and I couldn’t find ones that weren’t long biker short-length or ones that didn’t dig into my love handles. these check off every single box – and they come in three great colors (purple, gray, and black.) they do NOT chafe, they’re sweat-resistant, and very flattering!

Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged Shoes: while I didn’t go to a running store to get fitted, I bought these on a random recommendation and I LOVE them. they’re so light, they fit your foot so well, and there’s no chafing. I’ve gone up to 6 miles with these babies so far and I feel like I’m running barefoot!

Bose headphones: I stole these from Lu and they are the only headphones that stay in my ear for an entire run and don’t pop out. they have a long cord, which isn’t ideal, but until I upgrade to the Powerbeats by Dre Wireless headphones, these are great – and my favorite!

Under Armour head band: I have very coarse hair and this headband keeps everything in place, without shifting on my head. it’s the best I’ve found!

that’s it for now!

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
