Get you a HANDFUL! REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

It is Breast Cancer Awareness month and what better time to treat yourself or your lady to a new running bra.

A HANDFUL of what you may be asking!??

Well let me define Handful!

Hand-ful (noun) – A strong, confident, determined, active, compassionate, and/or adventurous woman. Sense of humor REQUIRED. (source)

 ”Handful was started by fitness enthusiast, Jennifer Ferguson, in Portland, Oregon. After years spent searching in vain for a good sports bra, Jennifer decided to channel her frustration creatively.  She designed and manufactured what she (and a lot of other female athletes) had been waiting for…that one sports bra that does it all! It has become much more than a sports bra for its admirers. The handful is an everyday bra that takes you from workout to weekend, looking great by itself or fantastic as a layering piece underneath.”   This is a small company that is run by 4 moms who are very involved in their community and very passionate about life! Who doesn't love that!?!

This is the bra that I got to review.

*Disclaimer: You don't see a picture of me wearing this bra because I couldn't figure out a good way to post a picture of me and show you the bra without me showing more skin then I am comfortable showing the internet world, but know that I wear it and LOVE it*

Here's a great picture of the packaging it came in when I got it in the mail! How fun! It comes with the mesh bag so that the bra is kept safe when washing it.

The Handful Bra is different than most sports bras.  Let's start with their motto:

"Made to flatter not flatten."

Most sports bras are made to compress your chest, while the Handful's goal is to separate and enhance while also providing support and comfort.  It does exactly that too.  At first it was weird for me to get used to.  Normally in any other sports bra I feel like my breasts get pretty flat.  With the Handful, I look as though I am wearing a regular bra...it doesn't feel that way though.  Also having the same enhancing effect, my breasts still feel supported and taken care of while I do sports such as yoga, running, or a kickboxing class.

Plus the thin straps make it easy to wear on a day-to-day basis, even when you aren't working out.  And the ruched front makes the bra feel sexy and sporty!

*Let me add that the bra also has a modesty padding inside.  This is easy to remove or add back in when needed.  I love it because as many girls now, after working out, when your sweat begins to dry, you get cold.  This, unlike most of my sports bras, helps hide the fact that I'm cold for all of the public to see.  The modesty padding really is great, and useful, even if you aren't a fan of padded sports bras.

Wait though...there's more! Handful also has a Handful Tank.  That is the product that I, Big Sis, chose to review since I am pregnant.

The company asked us about our sizes and were honest in telling us that the Handful Bra would be great for Lil Sis because she is smaller chested than I am. They did suggest I try the Handful Tank though! I am so glad they still included me. This tank was wonderful. I have worn it with and without a sports bra. I wish I felt comfortable sharing pictures of myself in it for you, but I don't with this big pregnant belly :)

I love how the straps are so comfortable and do not fall off of my shoulders if I have them set to be straight. This made it that much easier for me to wear. Many of my tanks, the straps fall, fall, fall. I love that you have the flexibility to make it criss cross as well. I have worn it both ways and don't prefer one way over another! :)

I am glad I got the tank too because I felt like it held me in. Lil Sis will look fine in a sports bra running {not that she does}... but I have a bit more meat and would not look good nor feel comfortable! :) I loved how I felt it held me in. As my pregnant belly has grown it has started to ride up my belly... but I can't wait to try it again after baby.

Handful makes this tank a lot like the bra and has the removable pads for you.  I left mine in and had no issues, I really enjoyed it. I think this tank is perfect for an athletic person. If you are someone that needs that extra comfort around your belly, this is perfect.. if you are someone that loves tanks to workout in, this is perfect... If you just want an everyday tank to wear out and about, under your clothes, or around the house, this is the prefect one. I am so glad we were able to review this product... and now I am so glad that one of you will win a Handful product!! SO fun.

One other awesome thing about Handful!
Remember how I said they created their bra for enhancement! And their motto once again is:

"Made to flatter not flatten."

 A big platform that Handful Bras stand on is helping women who have had mastectomy's.
"We are proud to be an approved mastectomy bra, supporting breast cancer survivors during treatment and their return to good health and fitness." -Jennifer Ferguson, CEO of Handful Inc.
How awesome is that! Each of their bras have a slit in the side where you can put a padding.  Each bra comes with one pad and you can buy extra if needed.  This enables women to add multiple if needed to create a more natural looking chest after surgery.
