Fitness Friday: Zensah Sports Bra

Today I’m so excited to share with you about a new sports bra I’ve been testing out for a few weeks. So excited, in fact, that I wrote a little poem about it…

Zensah Sports Bra Review

It’s the Friday before Christmas

and all through the house

not a creature was stirring

because they were worn out…

from all the running and training

that is underway

but thank goodness for Zensah

which helps along the way.

Today I’m talking about Zensah’s sports bras, but I have been using their compression leg sleeves for years and love them! You may remember that I wore them for both the Jed Smith 50K & New Orleans Marathon this year. Since I love the brand, I was so excited to get the opportunity to test out their sports bras, something I hadn’t tried yet.

Zensah Sports Bra Review

When I went to the website to choose a color & size, I was a little concerned that the style might not work for me. As a runner who’s a little more well-endowed, support is very important to me. The style didn’t look very supportive and I wondered if it really would be comfortable for me. That’s why I tested this out for several weeks before posting a review.

Why Zensah? There are several key benefits they highlight for their sports bras:

  • No Chafing – Every Zensah Sports Bra is made with a seamless design to ensure optimal comfort and prevent any chafing.
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Superior Comfort – Zensah uses it proprietary Zensah fabric in each Zensah Sports Bra it creates for an unmatched comfort.
  • Thermal Regulating

That top benefit is key for me. Other than support, chafing is the next concern on my list for sports bras. I have such sensitive skin, this tends to be more of a problem for me than other people.

The verdict?

With my two keys being support & chafing, I have been very happy with this sports bra! I’ve worn it on long runs (up to 8 miles so far), in a race, and during speed work over the last few weeks. In each situation I was comfortable, supported, and chafe-free!!

Zensah Sports Bra Review

I did size-down when  ordered the sports bra, which is something that has worked well for me in the past with this style. They offer two sizes:

  • S/M: 32ABC – 34AB
  • M/L: 34ABC – 36AB

The material is so stretchy, that the smaller size still fits very comfortably and it makes me feel more secure.

So far, I don’t have any cons to share with this sports bra. The only concern I have is how it will wear over the long-term. I’ll keep you updated with how things go as it gets even more use.

This is one sports bra I feel very comfortable (pun intended) recommending to you! :)

    I like that they come in fun colors! I just buy the basic champion sports bras from Target, but I don’t do much jumping/running exercises and don’t need much support to begin with–but I bet a good bra makes ALL the different when it comes to running long distances!

      I know the feeling, it’s like a huge risk and you don’t know if you’re wasting your money or not. Love finding new ones – even wore it on my long run today in the snow!

    Love this – I am always looking for a good sports bra. I am definitely in the “need more support” category too so I always have a hard time finding something that is supportive and doesn’t chafe. I will definitely check out the Zensah bra. I love that it comes in fun colors.

      You’re blessed with one less thing to worry about! The comfyness of this sports bra is good for anyone, plus all those color choices. I do love color!

    I keep trying to find a good supportive sports bra in cute colors. I tried the Moving Comfort Fiona bra last year, and while it supports me well and looks great, that ribbed chest band chafes me like crazy on long or humid runs. If they’d just change the material on the band, they’d have a real winner…so sad. So I’m back to the trusty Champion Shape Scoop Back, which hopefully they won’t “reformulate” since it has been working for me. They’ve got a few colors now rather than just black & white, so maybe I can get something a little cuter.
