#FitnessFridays :Plus Size Sports Bras past size 40D

With my workouts in full swing,  I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you one of the key things to surviving HIIT or my Zumba Classes training: A BOMB SPORTS BRA! Currently, I am 44D. Now I know that it’s not the biggest size…as far as boobs go. But, my workouts are a lot smoother and less exhausting when my breast are strapped down.

According to Overstock, the benefits of a sports bra (vs. a bathing suit bra or your everyday bra) are:

  • Sports bras are best for support during exercise. They are important for maintaining the integrity of the breast wall and the shape of the breast. Too much intense movement can cause ligaments surrounding the breasts to stretch and tear. Much of this damage is irreversible, and it causes drooping, sagging breasts; however, the right sports bra offers enough support to prevent this condition from occurring prematurely.
  • Some sports bras now have storage capabilities. With sports bras designed to hold keys and small MP3 players, there is no need for a bag or a pouch around the waist. Especially popular with runners, these sports bras reduce the number of things you have to carry or stash away. With these items invisibly and securely tucked away, you’ll never have to worry about losing them again.
  • Sports bras can also be very comfortable. Because full-figure sports bras are designed to work more than to flatter, they offer comfort in ways that regular bras cannot. For example, their increased coverage and wider straps distribute breast tissue evenly. Their general lack of underwires, firm ribbing, and delicate fabrics makes it easier for you to move around. Because they minimize breast movement, sports bras also minimize chafing or rubbing.

So if you are part of #TeamWellEndowed, check out these 5 plus size sports bras that’ll get you through even the bounciest of workouts.

Feeling Free & Right on Time

Plus Size Blogger wearing Melissa McCarthy Seven 7

Since January commenced, I’ve been feeling free! I legit walk around the house with no bra on. I elect to ignore phone calls. And if I don’t want to write, I don’t have to. If you’ve ever watched Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids, this is the level of freedom I hope to reach. I want to go home with ten puppies. I want to feel so comfortable with myself that it makes other people uncomfortable. With these feelings looming about, no better way to introduce Melissa McCarthy’s line, Melissa McCarthy Seven 7. Melissa McCarthy’s plus size line came about in 2016 and is continually bringing the heat for size 12+. With a focus on loosing the uniformity in plus size options and allowing plus size women to discover their personal style, Melissa McCarthy Seven 7 is a brand to watch!

My look

While browsing Fullbeauty’s website, I had to find something I hadn’t tried in the past. As of late, I’ve been leaning towards looks that I can wear to work, school, and out with the ladies. When I saw Melissa McCarthy Seven 7’s Vegan Leath Peplum Top, I knew this would be my transitional top. Nothing says winter staple like an article of clothing you can wear all day! YASSSSS!

When I was looking for the perfect pair of denim jeans, the Skinny Roll-Up Pant immediately caught my attention. These jeans exuded the “Feel Free” attitude that I’ve been invoking lately. 5 different colors splattered on the jeans and just enough room in the hip area! And I love pockets; it’s been a while since I’ve worn denim with pockets–anyone else notice pockets are slowly disappearing?

Lastly, Accessorizing. Have you heard of this watch company called Daniel Wellington? They make some elegant watches for the modern-day timepiece aficionado. While on their website, I feel in love with their Classic Sheffield model with the a rose gold accent. Talk about feeling important? I now have a reason to look down at my wrist! I have a horrible habit of looking down at my wrist when people ask me for the time. Well, the terrible part is that I never have a watch on, so here’s to looking the part. I paired the watch with Daniel Wellington’s Classic Cuff  because it gave the watch a feminine look. Use code BEAUSION15 to get 15% off your first order!

My boots were an easy steal from Urban OG  I always wanted some velvet boots but with a little heel. So If you are a size 11 and looking for diverse on-trend styles, make sure you check them out!

A little fringe clutch and I were ready to go! Although this is sold out from Fashion to Figure, you can find a similar one at Amazon Fashion! So what do you think of the look?

Cozy Sweaters and Timely Accessories

Plus Size Blogger wearing cozy plus size sweater and Jord Watch

Ever try looking for that cozy plus size sweater? You know that sweater that doesn’t fit like a glove but doesn’t complete drape off of you like a bag? I finally found her! While shopping at my local Ashley Stewart, I came across a sweater that was not only warm but cute. I don’t always wear sweaters because more often than not, I feel too frumpy. OR MY FAV, I can’t fit my winter coats because the arm holes in my jacket aren’t wide enough to accommodate my arm and my sweaters! So when I found this sweater at Ashley Stewart, I knew I had hope!

Now accessorizing was the easy part. I’ve been dying to pull out my watch for JORD Wood Watches since the team gifted it to me. There’s nothing like a cute watch that isn’t too small for your wrist. When ordering JORD Wood Watches, they send over a guide to measure the size of your wrist. Mine has a little slack on it so much sure you measure as accurate as possible. I opted for the Frankie Series: Zebra and Champagne Watch, but there are so many other ones you can try. From dark timepieces to light ones as mine, their selection is so beautiful and unisex!

My purse is also from Ashley Stewart. To go along with my champagne colored watch, it was only right that I got a champagne colored shoulder bag too. The embossed circle bag is a match to go with the sweater. And to finish off the look, I had to wear the boots that screamed, LOOK AT ME now. Ashley Stewart’s Snake Over The Knee Boot is one of three boots that came over my knee this winter! They are slightly uncomfortable but if you aren’t standing for more than 3 hours, you should be good.

So what do you think of my Sunday stroll down Newbury Street? Was I extra as always lol?
