Fleet Feet's Bra Whisperer is ready

to help with bra fits

 

 

 

 

No matter what your activity or breast size, a sports bra has become an integral and important piece of apparel. Sports bras are just as important as a properly fit pair of shoes. Fleet Feet Sports in Huntsville offers a selection of high impact sports bras from Moving Comfort, Enell and Nike. The bras we carry are breathable, comfortable, moisture wicking and offer the support that you need. Not all sports bras are created equal, and believe it or not 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra. Not sure if you are wearing the right bra size? Your bra size can fluctuate throughout the years. We recommend being fit annually to make sure you are always in the proper amount of support. Our bra fit process will help you determine which bra and size is right for you. If you would like to set up a bra appointment prior to your visit to guarantee immediate assistance on your visit, please email our "Bra Whisperer," Shirley Hardy at
shirley@fleetfeethuntsville.com.
