Get Your Bra-Necessities at the CRC

The perfect shoes and a great fitting bra. Every woman's Bra-Necessities.

At the CRC, our sports bra selection has tripled - and our size range has expanded from XS up to 40F.  We've added fresh sizing charts and measuring tools in our changing rooms.  Brooks and New Balance have helped train our staff on the fitting process and product.  The sports bra is an essential piece of equipment and finding the right fit can be a challenge.  Let's make it easy!  

With CRC's Bra-Necessities program, you get 25% off your sports bra with any purchase of shoes!  Get fitted for your most important running and walking equipment all at once. 

Did you know that 80% of the support in a bra is in the bottom band, not in the straps?

When measuring the rib cage, be sure to exhale before measuring.  Then round down to the nearest measurement.  If the top straps are digging into your shoulders, the bottom band is not the correct size!  The bottom band should lay flat and horizontal against your back.

Let's give you a quick look at our lead bra styles, focusing on Brooks and New Balance. 

New Balance Pace Bra:  Style and performance with a T-Back design and medium impact support. This is a great bra for cycling, hiking, running or boxing.

New Balance Fuel Bra:  Medium impact meets sleek style. This is a fan favorite of some of the CRC staffers. Advertised as medium impact, it is certainly a runnable bra for those wearing the XS – Medium sizes. NB DRYx is noted for its fast-drying technology that wicks away moisture. The bra features compression support for a no-bounce fit and is stylish enough to be worn on its own!

New Balance Power X Bra:  The Power X comes into two closure systems. The traditional back closure with two hook-and-eye closures and a front zip option for easy on and off.  Dueling sizing grids offer an extreme variety of sizes.  Both bras feature an elevated high impact design that will help keep you supported during your most intense cardio and cross training sessions. Adjustable padded straps make this bra as comfortable and attractive.  If you have shoulder issues or just generally are not planning a career as a contortionist, try-on the Power X front zip bra for maximum ease in getting in and out of your bra. 

Brooks Drive 3-Pocket Bra:  It includes a large, phone-size back pocket.  We'll repeat. It includes a large, phone-size back pocket!  The bonded phone pocket in the back isn't the only pocket. There are two mesh pockets on the sides that allow for small essentials. The right amount of compression moves with your body to reduce motion and offer run-ready support across a wide range of sizes. The DriLayer fabric and bonded free-cut seams make for distraction free comfort. 

Brooks Dare Scoopback Bra:  Traditional bra back closures and strap adjustments create an easy on and off design. Its run-ready encapsulation support features built-in molded cups that lift and separate each breast, holding you in to reduce motion and support. This nearly seamless design is sure to please.

Brooks Dare Racerback Bra:  Like the Scoopback, run-ready encapsulations and molded cups reduce motion.  This style is where you will find the largest cup and band sizes at CRC.  Adjustable straps and back closure allow you to fine-tune the fit. The performance fabrics nearly seamless design quietly accents the comfort.

A clean, finished armhole and neckline round out the comfortable yet supportive fit of this bra!
