Exciting stuff going on over at H&M this year. They just launched a newly expanded sports collection! This push-up sports bra is what really got me all gaga over the collection in the first place. I'm a pretty flat-chested lady, something that I used to be pretty self-conscious about growing up. I imagined that I was Madonna and would stuff my Mickey Mouse printed Jockey bra with tennis balls and dance around the living room like a maniac. Life goals man. But I have since then learned to embrace my dainty ant hills. Because being able to go bra-less and totally get away with it on a regular basis is pretty much more than awesome. Bra-less at the gym is usually not an option though. That's just awkward because gym creepers sadly do exist (see me eye rolling as I curl my biceps and shoot eye darts at anyone trying to knock me off my gym game with their creeper stare). Sports bras are actually my favorite part of getting dressed for the gym! It's fun to know you have something super bright and funky on underneath your basic gym gear. This sports bra from H&M is sleek and simple, but up close it's everything but basic. It's like a sporty version of a wonder bra. Adjustable in the back and with just the right amount of molded curve to give a girl like me a little extra something while she twerks it on the elliptical. Sometimes it's fun to actually pretend you have boobs.
I try to make it to the gym at least 2-3 times a week and I'm always pretty casual when it comes to attire. I go to sweat and release energy, not impress. It's not like there's really anyone cute at my gym to get dressed up for anyways, but you know what, getting dressed up for YOURSELF can just about be the best thing you can do for yourself at the gym. The saying "You feel good when you look good" really is true. No matter who is or who isn't looking at you.
