Suggestions, Ladies?

My "favorite" running bra has started to chafe right over my sternum, so I'm going bra shopping this week. It's an underwire, so I'm thinking I won't go that route on my new one. What one do you all recommend? Comfort is my number one priority, as I don't require a ton of support.   And I don't want to spend a fortune if I don't have to. Thanks!

    Just an idea - in the meantime, you might try this anti-chafing gel from Monistat (like this:http://compare.ebay.com/like/200661710013?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar). I first read about it being used as a makeup primer. Having tried it for that, I found that it has an amazing feel. You can get it off the shelf at Walmart or a drug store. It might just help extend the life of your "favorite" bra. It's a sad day when you have to ditch those, I know!

     

    Wow, I just noticed your first race was in Key West! SWEET!

     

    Good luck!

    Oh, I probably couldn't hear enough about that run! Good luck with the chafing!

    I second Tracycanrun's suggestion. I just bought the Fiona Moving Comfort bra and it's now my favorite. Very comfortable! Good luck!

    Hi girls!  Also try rebound racer by moving comfort. Just be sure to fit different sizes as it may feel too small or too tight, you might have to go a a size larger than you would expect.  What I like about the rebound racer, it controls the bounce when I am running. 

    Run safe and run fierce.
