If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that last week Henry and I paid a visit to Title Nine. Today I'm sharing the details for their upcoming FitFest as well as a fantastic giveaway!
In case you're not familiar, Title Nine is a women's activewear company (with a store located here in Portland!) that's all about empowering women to get involved in sports and fitness by offering clothing that's comfortable and functional while still being cute! And when it comes to being active, a good sports bra is key. That's why Title Nine is gearing up to host FitFest events at their stores across the country to help women find the sports bra that are the perfect fit for their body and workout routine.
When I heard about FitFest, I was super excited because I personally was in dire need of a new sports bra. To be honest, I typically didn't wear a sports bra all that often when I worked out before Henry was born. Let's just say my pre-baby boobs didn't need a ton of support and so the little shelf bra inside my regular workout tanks was more than enough for me.
And then I had a baby. Whole different ball game.
I actually wore one of my workout shirts that had a light support sports bra built into it to a bootcamp class recently and when we got to the part of the class where we had to do jumping jacks...let's just say...it wasn't pretty. (I really wish I could insert an emoji right here...ha!) I realized I needed a better sports bra ASAP, but I didn't know what size I was now or even what to look for.
Enter the "bravangelists" at Title Nine.
They are specially trained to help you find a sports bra that's the perfect fit, including taking your measurements and suggesting bra options from Title Nine's huge selection that will fit your needs. While I won't get into the specifics of what size bra I needed, let's just say that my flat-chested 7th grade self would probably be pretty shocked...ha! I was able to try on a bunch of different bra options, and have the bra experts at Title Nine assess the fit for me to make sure it was correct. Plus, as part of FitFest, they have a bunch of fun props you can try out to see how their sports bras work in action!
The FitFest event is being held here in Portland starting tomorrow, and then there's also one in Eugene next week. It's the perfect chance to get a great fitting bra, here are the details:

So which bra did I end up choosing?
After trying on a bunch of great options, I ended up going home with the 7 Wonders Bra! It provides fantastic support without creating a uni-boob situation and I loved the fun print. But my favorite part of the bra is the fact that it has the option to adjust the straps in the front...
So while it's not technically a nursing sports bra, it's nice to know that I could easily nurse while wearing it if needed. Plus, it fits great and will be perfect for any high impact activities this summer.
