The Perfectly-Fitting Sports Bra, from Someone Who Knows

Running Sports Bra from Bare Necessities

By Cindy Prosser, Guest Blogger

My entry into the modeling world took an unexpected turn when I agreed to model underwear at the young age of 20. While twenty is actually considered “old” in the modelling business, it felt very young to me when I was presented with the oportunity to stand around in very little clothing, in front a very large crowd (who knew taking photographs took so many people?). In the end, I said ‘Yes’ to the job, headed down a new career path, and quickly developed a level of self-confidence I hadn’t expected. Soon, I was immersed in the world of undergarments. I was surprised to learn what a great gift the perfectly-fitting bra truly is, and they became the #1 item on my Christmas gift-giving list!

During the last five months of my modelling career, I found myself exclusively modeling sports wear—an equally empowering and invigorating experience—and this was when my passion for sports bras was sparked. But life threw me another curve, as life often does, when I found out I was pregnant. My modeling days came to an end, but pregnancy gave me the opportunity to not only give birth to the best thing that has ever happened to me, but to also look at the world of undergarments from a new perspective: As a researcher and writer. Today, I get to write about all things bras, underwear, lingerie, nightgowns (and more!), and I absolutely love every minute of it.

Goals and Gratitude – Day 4

Nectar of the Gods

October 26, 2011 – Day 4

Goal: Oy! Today is going to be one of those days. I am feeling blah. Under the weather, tired, overwhelmed. I simply have too much to do. I leave town tomorrow for a three day conference and I need to prepare and pack; I am working today and have a jam-packed schedule of staff meetings, telephone calls, and deliverables due; LM has after school activities that require me to assume my role as Chauffeur; and to top it all off, it is garbage day. Yuck. My goal is, quite simply, to just get through it, to put my head down, focus, and put one foot in front of the other until it is finished. And there is one other noteworthy event today: My father is having his second surgery of the year, and I can’t be there for him, nor for my mother while she waits. Thinking of you both.

Gratitude: Thank God for coffee. Sweet, hot, delicious coffee. I ♥ you. And related, to the powers-that-be at Starbucks, who had the presence of mind to place a Starbucks coffee shop right next door to the post-secondary school I am running, all I can say is “Kudos!” Job well done. I ♥ you, too.

Update from Day 3: Halloween, √; Paper work, almost there; Patience, I did pretty darn good.:)
