The most essential of essential piece of clothing for any woman who engages in cardiovascular activity is, in my opinion, the almighty bra. My all-time favorite bra has been the Moving Comfort Fiona, which I got a couple sizes ago when I returned to running after having my daughter. I'll spare you the picture of WHY I needed this bra, but if you're a woman who has nursed... you know. Well a couple years and a few inches off my bust later, I'm ready for a new favorite bra.

A current runner-up that is in heavy use (as in, must soon be replaced because Tide + Fabreze can only do so much) is my Under Armor Duplicity. While the product specs say it's for light-to-moderate impact activities, the compression style makes it great for running. Despite my smaller size, I really don't like a.n.y.t.h.i.n.g. to move when I'm running. Under Armour's got me covered, there!

I'm on the hunt for promo codes and good deals. So far, I've come up with these:
Champion is having a sports bra sale and giving 20% off new items until 5/21.
Skinny Runner has a great promo code for Road Runner Sports for either 10% off all sports bras, or 20% if you're a "VIP" member (which I'm not, but I might get on that).
Sierra Trading Post has ridiculously low prices on great brands like Moving Comfort and New Balance. Use promo code ALFUN2 at the checkout for an additional 20% off!
(someone might go shopping... like right now)
Girls, what's your favorite bra brand? Moving Comfort gets the clear win, but I do have a couple great Champion bras, too.
Boys, do you have an equally essential piece of apparel? I imagine sweat-wicking material would be a must for certain areas...
