I’m sure you’re asking, “What do sports bras have to do with dog walks?”  I promise you there is a connection between sports bras and dog walks but you’ll have to read all the way to the end to find out 😉

On Thursday night, I had the pleasure of attending a Title Nine Fit Fest media event at the Boulder, Colorado location. Normally, I rank bra shopping as only slightly less painful and terrifying than bathing suit shopping. Such shopping excursions normally end in tears and a large chocolate bar for me so, I’ll be honest, I was sure I would walk out of the event completely demoralized. I could not have been more wrong.

The team of  Title Nine bravangelist fitting experts made the process fun, interesting and absolutely painless. They know how to put everyone at ease, accurately measure a woman’s chest, which not all bra stores do well, and they have an excellent selection of bras for serious sports activities, work to workout, everyday and even date night and, most importantly, they carry bras that are designed for real women.

How to get the right fit

While the average American woman wears a 36C bra, if you’ve ever shopped for a sports bra, you know how hard it can be to find a good, truly supportive bra that comes any bigger than an A or B-cup. Title Nine carries bras from 32AA up to 40EEE in styles that you actually want to wear and has bras for all different shapes, sizes, and workout routines. They also carry some terrific options for nursing moms.

Bravangelist Fitting Expert, Katie and sporty dog, Cass. I had no idea there would be a dog at the event, but it was kind of perfect as you’ll see when you get to the end of the post. I promise sports bras and dog walks go together well!

The awesome Katie measured me and then walked me through the features of several of the bras, really trying to hone in on my athletic activities and what I look for in a bra. She then pulled a varied selection of bras in my size to try on. It was a very personalized and focused experience. There was no pressure or push towards a particular type of bra and I didn’t feel rushed. In fact, I was encouraged to try the bras on and really give them a little workout with various stations like the hula hoop, jump rope and hippity hop ball.

Starter selection of bras pulled for me to try

Whether you are looking for “lock and load”compression for high impact activities or something that can easily transition from work to yoga class, I can’t recommend Title Nine more highly! They have tested thousands of bras and from the high quality materials to the unique barbells rating system (1=light support, 6=maximum support), there is truly something for every activity level and every woman.

Often putting on a sports bra is like wrestling with a large rubber band, but all of the bras I tried on had a rear clasp making them easy on/easy off! I am loving the fit, feel and color of my new Marvel bra by panache sport.

    Cool! I’ll have to check out Title Nine! They sound like a great shop, and right up my alley! I LOVE the idea of a 30 day dog walk challenge too! Sam-dog is reading along with me, and he likes the idea too! 🙂

      #titlenine is awesome! I hope you and Sam will join the challenge. That would be so fun. We’ll have to get a local group together 🙂

    It’s almost impossible to find one to fit me!

      I have been so happy with my Title Nine experience. They do phone consultations if you don’t have a store near you. 🙂

    Looking forward to the 30-day challenge! My Beezus pup and I are ready! As for sports bras… such a pain. But, once I find a great one, I buy it in every color. 🙂

    • SimonDawg March 30, 2016 at 2:30 pm - Reply

      Woot! The challenge will be a blast! Looks like we have quite a few local folks who want to participate! Yay! Looking forward to seeing you and Beezus on the trails 🙂

    Good to know that Title Nine does fittings for bras with no underwire. What a concept!

    • SimonDawg March 30, 2016 at 2:32 pm - Reply

      Free fittings, no pressure and an awesome selection! It was really a great experience. (PS. Norah, you can borrow/walk one of my dogs if you want to join the challenge group in Boulder 😉 )

    This sounds like an awesome product!
    But I guess having a small dog that doesn’t take me running – unless there’s a squirrel involved 😉 I’ve never given this much thought. Saying that, I can see a need for this product for other adventures and activities.
    I wonder if this product is available in Canada?

    • SimonDawg March 30, 2016 at 2:35 pm - Reply

      My dogs (75lbs, 70lbs and 48lbs of solid muscle, respectively) definitely turn any walk into an Olympic event requiring excellent support. 😉

      #TitleNine has such a great selection. They don’t currently have stores in Canada but they do ship to you. The best way to order is by phone so that they can do a phone fitting, discuss shipping costs and enter your international information correctly. The customer service number is 1-800-342-4448 (I’m not an affiliate or anything. I just really love the company and the customer service)

    Miso and I are up for the challenge! What a great way to incorporate an awesome local promotion. Thanks for the support in more ways than one, #TitleNine!

      Yay! Looking forward to seeing you and Miso out there. Looks like we’ve got a nice little local challenge group starting to form – Jen and Chelsea are both in 😉

    Wow, that sounds like a terrific experience. All of my sports bras are the rubber band type and they are not comfortable at all.

    • SimonDawg March 30, 2016 at 2:40 pm - Reply

      Beth, I am not an affiliate for #TitleNine. I just LOVE their products and had such a great experience with the #T9FitFest. If you have a store near you, I would make an appointment for a free fitting. I absolutely recommend checking them out the next time you’re in the market for a sports bra or sporty and attractive women’s fitness and active wear clothing.

    You know – this is one fabulous post! One thing for sure – a professional fit makes a huge difference. My momma absolutely adores her Title Nine bras – and they do keep everything ‘in place.’ Really great post, thank you!

      Thanks so much! Glad you liked the post and glad your mom has had a great experience with her Title Nine bras 🙂

    Title Nine just had a giant sale here a few weeks ago… I love their clothes! Perfect dog walking attire too.

    • SimonDawg March 31, 2016 at 9:01 am - Reply

      Totally agree on the sports wear. It’s casual enough for dog walking but nice enough that I can finish a dog walk and head straight to the coffee shop (aka: my office) to do my work 🙂

  10. Christina Berry March 31, 2016 at 4:47 pm - Reply

    I definitely agree that a professional fit makes all the difference in the world! I’m not familiar with Title Nine, but you can bet I’m checking it out! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      Title Nine is fabulous! They will do a phone fitting with one of their #bravangelists if you can’t find a store near you.

    Good timing as far as the read on my part. I was just out on a bike ride and thought to myself, ‘hmmm… this sports bra is not quite doing its job..’ I’ll be back in Boulder tomorrow and will check out Title Nine’s selection soon. I’m looking forward to the 30-Day Challenge beginning.

    • SimonDawg April 4, 2016 at 9:30 am - Reply

      We’re getting very excited for the Challenge to kick off too! We’ve got Title Nine, Ruffwear and The Honest Kitchen and sponsors, so far! Still working on a few other goodies for the Challenge winner!

    So, I still say the title of this post is one of the best ever! I will definitely check out Title Nine and am very interested in your 30 day challenge, too!

      Thanks! I’m getting really excited for the Challenge. We now have Title Nine, Ruff Wear and The Honest Kitchen sponsoring the challenge with goodies for the challenge winner so it should be a ton of fun!

    After a bi-lateral mastectomy and years of reconstruction beginning in 2012, I became intimately acquainted with sports bras. They have become SO important to me and my comfort and it is HARD to find good ones. Thank you for this article.

      I’m glad you liked the article and I hope that your recovery went well! 🙂

    Sports bras and dog walks totally go together! I have certain bras for the gym, ones for spinning, and ones for walking the dogs. I don’t want to wear a regular bra because I get all sweaty in the Summer, so I totally feel ya! Also, SO excited to discover your blog. Looks like we’re both a part of the BlogPaws sponsored content workshop : ) Looking forward to getting to know you and your blog better!

      I’m so glad you liked the post. Thanks! I am LOVING my Title Nine Panache Marvel Sports Bra. Seriously. It’s warm today so I’m going to test the sweaty factor when I’m out with the dogs later today 😉 I’m looking forward to getting to know you in the workshop as well! 🙂

    Huh, how cool! I’m a professional dog walker & always on the lookout for the perfect sports bra. I’ll have to look into the Title Nina bras!

      They are really fantastic bras and the staff is really knowledgable about proper measuring/fitting.

    I am similar size (32c) and I take a small in twisted bra from their om stars line, their fabric is very accommodating yet holds you in.
