What is “All-Chi”? Is it “chi” like the yoga meaning of peace or “chi” like Chicago? If you thought either, you are correct. I am a Chicago native so the “chi” means Chicago as well as I’ll be reviewing workouts/ workout gear it also means “chi” as in the yoga chi. The “all” is “all-inclusive” meaning I’m going to try to showcase as many different body types as possible- everyone deserves to feel good in when they’re getting their sweat on, so I’m going to try to curate a list for you.
So where did this weird nugget of an idea come from?
Last year I ran the Chicago marathon and I was looking for a sports bra that would get the girls across the finish line. I wanted something that was cute yet supportive and that my size 32DDD boobs (sorry mom, now the internet knows my bra size). Sounds simple? Nope. I tried on countless sports bras none that really gave the support or aesthetic I was looking for. I could go full support and feel like a matron or go low support and know that my tatas would never make it across that finish line without feeling like they went through an MMA match. For some reason they don’t just make sports bras that are like your normal bra size, you can’t go into the workout aisle, find your bra size and be done. Every company has a different way of sizing that even when you think you’ve lined it up right it still doesn’t quite fit right.
I figured that I can’t be the only girl who struggles with this, so I created this blog. I’m going to try to give you a cheat sheet of which brands are great for each body type, so you can feel like a million bucks whether you’re getting ready to run a marathon or to Starbucks for a PSL…
