The handful bra review and giveaway "Flatter not Flatten!"

The Handful Bra...
I am not sure if you all struggle with finding the perfect bra like I do... I am constantly trying one that is the perfect fit. At this time last year, my friend Tamara at FitKnitChick pointed me toward The handful bra! Since I have found The handful bra, I have not looked anywhere else. I LOVE this bra! I have purchased more, and when I was at FitBloggin, I had the opportunity to meet the ladies behind the bra. 

I love that The Handful is an approved mastectomy bra with generously cut pockets that can accomodate extra pads or prosthetics. Insurance plans will even cover the cost of a bra for survivors. For more info contact Survivor Relations at cgloldberg@handful.com

I had to immediately run over to her (Jennifer) to show her that I was actually wearing a Handful bra! She had me take off my shirt and pose for a picture with her. I have no idea where that picture is right now, and I hope it never surfaces. haha!  My friend Carrie and I were in the lobby of the hotel in our bras! Luckily, after that, I was given TWO free bras! Yay!!! Lucky me! 

There are so many things I love about Handful! As someone who is lacking in the chest area, handful is extremely flattering! The say they "flatter not flatten!" Anyone who is lacking in the chest area knows that it's definitely not flattering to wear a sports bra, so how awesome is it to find one that gives you a little bit of help!!! Another thing is comfort! I cannot tell you how comfortable  these bras are. I forget I am wearing it! It's also very stylish! They come in great colors and are super cute. Someday I hope to be fit enough to workout wearing just the handful! I wear my handful bras to workout, to work, and even to go to dinner or a Rays game! 

Right now The Handful bra is offering 20% off. You cannot go wrong with this sale! The 20% off sale is to clear out the items that weren't made in the US. From now on, all products will be made in the USA!!! Yay! And now you can get 15% off by using the Code  "MindysFitness"  That is a pretty great deal!!!

    1. It was so much fun! I chased her down in the hallway ;) I couldn't resist! I never workout without my handful, so I knew I was wearing one without even checking... Yay for me that it was my pretty pink one and not the one I wore during the color run (still stained... lol)

  38. The only place I'm a "handful" is in the classroom with my students, but most of them are handfuls too so, it works out. :)
