Yesterday I met with my newest client, Lauren Hefez, who funny enough is an amazing fitness instructor in town. She teaches barre and Lean Line (a barre/pilates/dance/stretch fusion workout) at Equinox as well as her class at the studio, Soul Train called Sweat with Lauren Hefez. What I loved about her closet was that exactly half of it was just fitness clothes, hung up with great care, color coordinated and in pristine condition. Out of all the beautiful pieces that she had, my favorite was actually a sports bra that she was wearing. By the end of that day, she had gone to the gym and bought me the exact same one, which got me thinking about a post we wrote last August about sports bras as fashion pieces… and this sports bra is the perfect one to pull this look off…
The one I got has a funky flamingo print on it… This link will bring you to the exact product.
We also really love this one from Splits59~

SPORTS BRAS TAKE ON THE STREETS
My thing with sports bras is very simple. They squish my boobs into a mutant uni-boob. The sports bra… Attractive? Not one bit. Practical? Only for running. Fashionable? Are you serious…?
This past season we’ve seen a whole slew of fitness clothing punching out its competitors, and taking center stage in the fashion scene. But nothing is as wildly unusual to come out of hiding, as the sports bra. Try it out as an under-cami for a low cut shirt, or as a cami under a sheer top… give that sports bra of yours a new life…take it out of hiding and onto the streets.
Check out these street style stars and how they gave their sports bras a fashionable new life…
