KALYX-ECO LOVING SPORTS BRAS



GOOD FOR A WOMAN, GOOD FOR HER GAME, AND GOOD FOR THE EARTH

IMHO---- SUPPORT AND GET SUPPORTED TOO!

Ever find a piece of performance gear that is so genius… it’s should be on every moving gal's to get list.

Meet KALYX --- an emerging brand in that sector.

WHY:

KALYX makes truly supportive, non chafing bras for seriously aerobic, jumping up and down kind of athletic endeavors…

And BRILLIANTLY---makes them from a “revolutionary K-Force Eco-Loving Fabric” that is an ultra lightweight techy fabric from recycled polyester fibers…as in all those water bottles, the garbage horror of every country we have ever visited…

So…by using the plastic bottles that athletes drink from …KALYX sports bras soak up, manufacturing-wise ---on average, 3 bottles apiece…


AND are comfortable---cause KALYX styles all breath and are super moisture wicking. PLUS as billed, are truly supportive and keeps gals 'put' ...and we need that.

BETTER still… the KALYX  bras are Madonna/Lady Gaga worthy inner wear as outerwear stylish.

Really.

Our stacked gal pal tried the “Embrace” Marathon Running Bra ($44) on a six mile jaunt on hilly terrain...and felt held up without being squeezed and smooshed down. The bra is sized S. M. L etc and are very adjustable with an added Velcro back strap…fashioned in such a way to secure (VERY) in a racer back style--- that does not rub/chafe the skin. 















Love this--- the colors are the basics and pastels=== with girly or bold geometric, eye-catching trims.

Our top pick is the truly dazzling, delightful and divine DD DIVA ($48) for D and double D-ers…
































That live up to the motto “...when a woman exercises, balls are the only thing that should bounce!”

Other feminine styles with back and front closures--- are geared towards low impact activities like Yoga/Golf (“Uplift” Hollywood All Star with great mesh back)…hiking for all day comfort…etc.




































HINT: If one is borderline size wise, buy the smaller size…as a sweat saturated performance bra will stretch a tad.

And don’t toss in a heated dryer (DUH!!!)
