Erika – Armour Bra:
I immediately fell in love with this sports bra! The first thing I noticed when I put the bra on was how secure I felt. I usually layer two sports bras, but this one did the job! It was tight in all the right places, and super comfortable. I was also was pleased with the mesh under arms, which eliminates any unflattering under-arm fat. The look is great –perfect combination of sporty and feminine. It completely eliminates movement without flattening out my chest.
The back design is sporty and stylish. It clasps in the back, which makes it easier to take off after a sweaty run. I found it almost impossible to clasp the bra on, so I found myself clasping it and then pulling it down over my head. The first day I ran in it, I wore the bra fastened on the middle clasp and it felt great. The second time I wore it on the last clasp, and felt the metal digging into my back. But after moving it back to the middle clasp, it once again felt great.
Sizing Tip: I usually find myself debating on a B or C cup, so I wasn’t sure what size I would be in this sports bra. I went with the C cup and was happy I did! I’d say if you are in-between sizes , go for the larger size. The cups fit perfectly and do a good job of separating and securing, not squishing.
Overall, I highly recommend this sports bra! I will definitely be purchasing more! (Other UA Sports Bras found here.)
I’m a huge fan of comfy sweatshirts and sweatpants on cold fall days, and the Storm full zip hoody fits the bill. It’s fairly lightweight and not bulky at all, yet it kept me extremely warm. This hoody is also water resistant, though I haven’t had a chance to test out that feature quite yet. Although it’s a men’s hoody, it fits me perfectly, and the squadron blue is a great, unisex color. I plan to spend many more cold winter weekends in this hoody.

My two cents: This is obviously a men’s hoody, but I know a lot of gals who prefer men’s sizes because they like the looser, comfy fit. These can go either way!
Thanks, ladies! And another thanks to Under Armour for the gear. We have one more review coming up – the shoes!
