I bought a genuine jogbra about two years ago and liked it a lot.
Last week I
went back to the same store where I purchased it, only to discover the
model I like so well is not to be found.  My good old original is a
firm spandex top with a soft bra built into it.  Immobilizing,
effective, comfortable and modest.  The new ones are just lycra tops
with lining and they just don't do the job.  The Jogbra company seems
to have been bought by Champion, and I can't say much for the new
Champion/Jogbra products I've tried on.  They are XXXXXpensive and not
as good as the old stuff.  Can anybody help me find something at least
similar to the old dependable I've described--Puhleeeeze?

Thanks in advance.

***** ALSO, try Title 9 Sports.  Its a company out of Berkely (I think) that
only carries women's sports apparel and their catalogs had a pretty large
selection of bras.  And they had lots of stuff for running.  If you can't
find the number let me know and I'll try to dig it up for you.

Hi Wendy--

I haven't had any trouble at all finding good Jogbras; in fact, they are
now making full-figure models that look like sport tops and work
wonderfully. The Hanes catalog suggestion is a good one; otherwise, maybe
you should try different stores such a Lady Foot Locker (where I bought
mine). Some department stores also carry them. True, they are expensive
but since they work so well it's worth it to me. good luck.

First of all, I think Champion still makes various Jogbra models.
I own over *24* Actiontech Jogbras! (so I guess I can say a few words
about this). I've usually picked 'em up here and there when the new
patterns come out.

You did not mention how you were built (bust size, chest size), but
the Actiontech Jogbras are a pretty good way to go, if you liked the
original jogbra. The main disadvantage is that these do not have
individual cups. The Actiontechs are the only one of the jogbra line
that are made with nice patterned fabric (released seasonally).

What you found are the new lycra models of the Actiontech style. They
*definitely* do not provide as much support as the regular
cotton-based jogbras. The easiest way you can tell the difference
(besides the thinness of the fabric) is to check the back keyhole. The
cotton version has a small narrow opening. The lycra version has a
fatter, wider opening and the back "straps" extend more like the
letter "X". Their advantage is that much faster when you hand wash 'em.

The Actiontechs retail for $27-$29, but you can get them on sale for
anywhere from $18 to $22. As some of the others mentioned, you can get
them from Road Runner Sports (but they usually don't carry the
seasonal patterened fabric ones).

My philosophy is that a good jogbra is as important as a good pair of
running shoes for um... "chesty" women. Hey men (I *KNOW* there are
some of you reading this!), it's not funny so quit snickering! While
large ***s might be good for ***feeding (I wouldn't know), they
are a real pain for running. Stability and control make a big
difference and actually affect my speed on the road (slow vs. very
slow). You want the correct support to avoid back, neck and shoulder
pain as well.

[If you fellows think that's funny, try running with a pair of running
shorts with the liner cut out and no jock strap next time! :)]

Yeah, yeah, I'm one of those guys reading this. I couldn't help it. First
of all, I've tried what you suggested and don't recommended to anyone! The
real reason I replied was because I had to post this little juicy bit
someone posted on a track&field mailing list :-)

<<start forwarded material>>
Second, and I apologize in advance if this makes anyone too giddy (Ned, perhaps
you ought to go to the next letter right now), I saw a most unusual tie
last year.  It happened at Heps, and two women in the 800 crossed the line
very close
to one another.  One was in lane 1 and the other in 3 or 4, so the *** eye
tended to favor the closer.  When the Finishlynx man got the picture, it was too
close to tell.  He blew it up once, twice, three times and still it was
too close.  Finally, after about eight enlargement, it became apparent
that the ***
of the outside runner was ahead of any part of the torso of the inside runner.
He lined his gauge up with the photo of the ***, and it was then unmistak-
eable, the outside runner was ahead at least by this manner of checking.  The
Finishlynx guy decided to give the win to her by the torso rule.  Of course,
this led to all manner of speculation among the older officials as to what type
of discrimination this meant against the less endowed, or as to what would
have happened had the victor been on the downswing rather than up.
I think this example may add a new expression to the language, one that can
replace "She won by a nose."
/////////
/////////

*** size has actually decided some very important races.  To begin with, the
*** is a legitimate part of the torso and thus counts in determining which
runner crossed the line first.  In Stuttgart in the '93 World Champs the
controversial photo finish came down to which crossed the line first: Devers'
left shoulder or Ottey's left ***.  Slightly larger ***s would have given
Ottey the victory (assuming she could still run as fast with larger ***s).  
And I seem to recall that the all-important third place finish at the US
Olympic trials in '88 in the women's 100m hurdles came down to which runner had
the larger ***s, since their chests (at the ribcage level) were dead even.

Social considerations aside, I do not think there is any discrimination against
less well endowed women.  I'm guessing that any photo-finish advantages gained
by having large ***s is more than offset by the disadvantage of having to
run with them in the first place.

Sorry, couldn't resist :-)
