Quick Q&A with Kara on Sports Bras
Welcome to a special "lightning round" with Sally and Kara Goucher: sports bra edition. Where what happens over text message ends up on the internet...enjoy!
Sally: What do you think the lifespan of a sports bra is?
Kara: 2 years tops.
Sally: How do you know a bra is toast?
Kara: No shape, faded fabric, when it's no longer a bra you'd wear running unless you have a shirt over it.
Sally: Haha. Bra of shame.
Sally: Pads or no pads?
Kara: I've never been a pad girl and you'd think I would be since I have nipples that like to show off. But I just like simplicity in everything I wear when I run.
Sally: Cool. What’s your ratio of sports bras to regular bras?
Kara: I own two real bras and probably 40-50 sports bras. I’m not lying.
Styled in: Moto Tracktion Bra
Sally: Do you prefer doing a workout in just a bra, or tank and bra?
Kara: Both, depending on weather. I always start with tank, but peel it off if I'm hot.
Sally: Bright bra or subtle?
Kara: Depends on mood. Winter, subtle. Summer's coming or I'm fit- bright.
Sally: Ok last question. if you were going to gift one bra to a newbie runner, which O bra would you choose?
Kara: Hmm, that's tough. Maybe the Hi Low Bra because it's a good transition bra. Doesn't feel super technical and it's cute.
