The Sports Bra Expert

Give Thanks, Give a Sports Bra> back
December 10, 2010

A few days ago I got a terrific note from a very active 36DD lady who tried the Champion Max Support "Shape Scoop" sports bra for the first time and found that it's made a big difference in her workouts. It reminds me of all the amazing comments I have gotten from women over the years when they have (finally!) discovered the experience of wearing a great sports bra!

I've heard the gamut, from "Finally, a cute sports bra that makes me look forward to going to the gym," to "What a relief to put an end to slipping straps and scars from scratchy bra seams!" to "This is the first time in my adult life I've been able to exercise comfortably, let alone run a 10K race–thank you, thank you, thank you!!".

There really is no getting around it: Having the right gear that makes you look and feel your best during your workout is key to your success!

This season of giving, I'm especially happy to give you the chance to reward a deserving person in your life with a Champion sports bra! Here's how to nominate–Don't tell us her name–just who she is in your life and why she is deserving (i.e. my mother because she still works out in regular bras!) Please enter your nomination in the question box on the ask the expert section, along with your name and your e-mail address, then click "submit." All entries must be received before 11:59:59 p.m. ET on December 23, 2010. (You must be 18 or older to enter.) We'll be drawing 15 winners on or about January 3, 2011, and will send those winners an e-mail requesting size and activity level information for their nominees in order to select the right sports bra. Each winner will win one sports bra to give to a deserving woman in his or her life!

I hope you'll take a minute to recognize your own personal "star," and inspire the rest of us with your tribute! Happy Holidays!

Introducing Champion's Sports Bra Expert - LaJean Lawson

In 1977, Champion Activewear invented the first sports bra, called the Jogbra®, made from two jockstraps sewn together. The realization that women also needed support for their assets was the catalyst for Champion Activewear to apply innovation and technology to become the leader in the sports bra market.

In 1977, runner LaJean Lawson had just finished her first marathon with bleeding sores on her shoulders and chest from a bra that did anything but support. Her search for a solution eventually led to the discovery of her life's passion–sports bras!

Today, Champion Activewear is thrilled to offer Dr. Lawson as a resource to help you solve your sports bra problems. While Dr. Lawson has gained critical knowledge from scientific research, the best education she's had about sports bra needs has come from the thousands of women she has spoken to at races and events, as well as those who help her test Champion products.

Whether it's your shoes or your sports bra, your workout happiness depends on finding the gear that's just right for your size and activity level, and that's exactly why we're here to help!
