If you live here in the Bay Area, you are probably already familiar with Title Nine– a women’s athletic apparel and casual clothing store that makes and specializes in high quality sports bras, tops, bottoms, skirts, skorts, capris, and everything else in between. I’ve been a fan of Title Nine for a few years now and have always loved their swimwear but have never tried any of their workout clothing so when they invited me to attend a special “FitFest” event and get professionally fitted by a T9 Bravangelist for a brand new sports bra, I happily RSVPed!*
As every female athlete knows (or should know!), the most important foundation for any workout is a bra designed specifically for your unique body type, size and activity. The bra experts at Title Nine are making it easier and a lot more fun to find the perfect bra by hosting a series of “FitFest” events during the summer here in the Bay Area to help every athlete find her perfect bra for a more comfortable and healthier workout.

When I stepped into the T9 Berkeley store, I was greeted warmly by bra expert Amy who immediately welcomed me and began asking questions about the type and size of bra I currently wear, the activities I do the most, and anything I dislike (colors included) when it comes to sports bras. After I told Amy my current size, love for bra-like sports bras with hook-and-eye clasps and adjustable shoulder straps, and hate for the color yellow, she measured me and began pulling bras off the wall for me to try on.
I tried on several different brands and types- all to my specifications for high-impact running bras- and finally settled on a Title Nine brand white bra, the Tech Athena (pictured above). Amy chose a size that I had never ever worn before- one full size smaller in the torso and a much bigger in the cup (I have always worn a 36C, Amy fitted me in a 34DD!!!). To my total surprise, they all fit so much better than any bra I’ve ever chosen for myself- FitFest is like boobie graduation day!
I took my new bra on a quick run today and it was pretty much a perfect match- just the right amount of support, no weighing down on the shoulders, and a wicking material that kept my usual cleavage sweat drippage totally dry! YES!!! (And thank you, again, Title Nine!)
Each Title Nine FitFest event includes:
- Personalized bra fitting advice from a “bravangelist” expert
- An expanded assortment of bras
- Bras for sports, work-to-workout, everyday and date night
- A “Bounce-ath-a-lon” for those who want to put Title Nine’s bras to the test, with stations like hula hoop, jump rope, cup stacking, run around the block, hippity hop ball & burpees
