Today’s review: Handful Bras!
I received a Y-Back Handful Bra and a pair of leggings to try.
The Y-Back Bra:
The Y-Back bra has a bit thicker straps than the original Handful bra and I like that for the high-impact of running. The bra is comfortable (like it’s not even there!) yet keeps everything in place. No bouncing or jiggling! For reference, I am a 30C (ish) and usually a XS or S in bras. My struggle is a narrow/small rib cage yet I have broad shoulders, making it hard to get bras (that actually fit) on/off.
I found that this one works for me in both the XS and S – the XS just being a tad more snug. I find myself reaching for the small more often because it’s easy to get on/off. I don’t notice any bounce or anything either, so – win-win!
I also LOVE this marble-y purple color. I plan on ordering more Y-Backs and trying the original with the thinner straps for everyday wear.
The leggings by Handful are really nice. A smooth material – not quite as as stretchy as I’d like but I’m not a compression-leggings type. I like super stretchy and forgiving leggings. I’d wear these on my “skinny days” if ya know what I mean. If you like a snug fit, you’ll love the fit true to size, if you like stretchy: maybe size up.
I LOVE the patterns – Handful really does a great job with form AND function. I also got to meet the founder/owner and the Handful ladies at The Running Event and they are so so nice and genuine and truly really care about making women feel amazing! I will definitely be a customer for life.
