The armband doesn’t always stay put. In fact, it often slides right down my arm. I then have to break stride and form to push it back up and refasten it.
Which is why I was super excited to find this awesome new sports bra, the Mi-Bra.
First, you might be wondering why I’m even featuring a sports bra here. Sure, it’s clothing, but it’s not exactly fashion. Is it even green?
Why yes, as a matter of fact, it is!
The Mi-Bra is made with 90% organic cotton. And as you can tell from the picture, it’s defining characteristic is its design. It has a tiny pocket up front that allows you to slide your iPod or other MP3 player in.
No more sweaty, slippy armbands! Whoo-hoo!
Want to know what else is cool? Once you’ve worn your Mi-Bra out, and it’s life is over, if you return it to the company, Girl Habits, they’ll give you 25% off your next Mi-Bra purchase.
What do they do with your old bra? If it’s still usable, they donate it. If not, they send the bra back to the manufacturer so they can recycle the fabric.
Even cooler is the owner/inventor, Carolina. You can see her profile here. She’s a writer, very much into fitness, and isn’t afraid to admit she makes mistakes. She’s the kind of person I would love to be friends with.
The Mi-Bra sells for only $20, which I think is a great bargain. You can check it out here.
