Day 3 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 3 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today are: 3 Handful Bras.


For today, DAY THREE, three winners will be randomly selected, each winning a Handful bra of their choice.

Although there is much debate as to whether or not a runner should wear under garments on their bottom half, the need for over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders for females while running is a MUST! And finding said garment can be tricky.

I was introduced to Handful bras years ago and haven't looked back since. I'l be the first to admit (especially since I would consider myself a self proclaimed 'Frugal Fred'), they cost a pretty penny, but they're worth every cent (and not just because I've been an ambassador for them in the past, I was rocking these bras for years before they asked me to be part of their team and have continued even though I'm no longer officially part of the crew)! Not only do they #FlatterNotFlatten (say goodbye to the unfortunate unaboob), but they come with removable Lights Out™ pads, offer flat seams on the inside for added comfort, have performance wicking lining and the adjustable bras allow customization of the strap length and strap configuration {can be X-back, straight or tied up as a halter}. Although I'm partial to the Adjustable Bra, they offer three other models as well - the Y-Back Bra, the Bound and Determined Bra and the Now and Zen Bra.


As a part of the #SportsBraSquad (which, let me remind you, I joined very reluctantly because I do not always love the way my body looks, but when it is hot and humid and you sweat through your shirt before you start your run, you've gotta do something), I am STOKED to have found a sports bra that not only looks great, but makes me feel great!


Entering this giveaway (along with the other #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas giveaways) is easy-peasy! Simply use the Rafflecopter widget below listed on the giveaway blog post and cross your fingers. Some entries are available daily so I'd HIGHLY recommend entering early and often. (Shoot, I would even go as far as suggesting you set an alarm to remind you to come back to this page every 24 hours so you can take advantage of as many entries as possible!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway Now, the nitty gritty details... All entries are verified, so please make sure to do whatever the required action for the entry is or it will be disqualified. I would hate for you to miss out on winning due to a technicality, so if you are going to click the option, make sure you do whatever it asks or a new, random winner will be selected in your place.

Also, this giveaway will last seven days, with the winners being randomly picked (and notified) on the eighth day. The winners will have 24 hours to reply to the congratulations email from me to claim their prize. That means, for this specific giveaway, it will end on December 9th at 11:59pm PST and the THREE winners will be chosen on December 10th.


And, finally, the winners must have a US mailing address. International shipping seems to cost an arm and a leg these days, and customs is a major headache, so to make it easier (and cheaper) on the brands who have offered up their products, the winners must live in United States of America (or at least have an address we can ship to within the US).

With that said, BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERS! And don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see what is up next in my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas (I promise you do NOT want to miss out on any of these giveaways!)!

PS Just in case you aren't one of the THREE lucky winners, you can use code "CARLEEMCDOT" for 10% off your order (because EVERYONE is a WINNER in my book)! The code is good on both full priced and sale items (gift certificates excluded), but expires on December 31st, 2018, so go get your shop on and save a few dollars in the process!

I've heard great thing about handful bras but have not tried then yet. I have several different brands of sports bras that I like for different reasons but have yet to find one I like for everything.

Karen Willson said...

Love some of the Brooks Moving Comfort bras - but they definitely flatten and give you uni-boob!! Gotta try a Handful bra!!

Michelle B said...

I love my Handfuls! I've also been digging Senita's bras recently because of the cute patterns. But my handfuls are SO much more comfortable!

Lori Thornton said...

I've yet to find my go-to bra, I've found a lot of don't go-to bras. These are next on my to try list!

Danielle Fogerty said...

this would be a great way to try these out

Anonymous said...

Would love to try theses out!

Courtney LeGare said...

I love the handful bras! The max support ones are super cute while still giving me enough support to run in. I have found very few “max support” bras that actually do the job and even fewer that look so cute while doing so!

Shannon Bergeson said...

I love my handful bras!!

Unknown said...

The new LuluLemon running bra is my go to. Only thing I have found that actually holds my boobs when running and is comfortable!

Tracey K said...

I’ve been running in a brooks Fiona bra that I like. But recently have checked out handful bras and was thinking about giving them a try!

Liz Mitchell said...

I’m cheap, so I usually buy whatever’s on clearance at Target.

Goldie said...

I've never tried one of Handful's bras but I've heard great things!

Unknown said...

❤️❤️❤️ handful!! Tried so many different bras until I finally found these, thanks to your IG!

Anonymous said...

Emily Christman said...

My go to is honestly a cheap Danskin one from Walmart but I recently bought a new Brooks bra (I can’t remember the name) and I love it!

Kallie Conrad said...

I loved Moving Comfort Juno, not so much since Brooks took over. I'd love to find another good bra.

Carolyn said...

I found Handful from your coupon code! Now they're my fave!

Daniell said...

Sadly I haven't, need to try on a few more

Megan Warzecha said...

I’ve never had an issue with my sports bras, but I’ve helped enough women in our store to know it’s a huge deal. I tend to wear Brooks. A lot of women with much larger boobs than me have had their running lives saved by the She Fit.

Jolene said...

I love C9 from Target, but have always wanted to try Handful because they look cute and can be used as a swimsuit top!

katy_dyer said...

I actually really like the Victoria's Secret sport bras.

Giant Sis said...

No specific brand loyalty - but I only want ones that have clasps - no pulling it on and off over my head! (liz n)

Shiduna Townsend said...

I'm still trying to find the right sports bra for my girls. It's difficult to find comfort and functionality for a larger breast, plus size girl.

Anna S said...

I'm trying to find a new sports bra! This would be great to try!

Misty said...

handful sports bras are my favorite!!

SD Mom said...

The Y Back from Handful is my favorite!

I have several brands and probably reach for the Champion brand the most. I'd love to try Handful bras!

Becky Clayton said...

These Handful bras look amazing, but with a D cup, I'd be afraid to run in them!

Brandi Gilbert said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Handful Adjustables! <3

Jennifer said...

I have been looking for an organic option but haven't found the perfect one yet. Happy Holidays!

Lisa Powers said...

I have a brooks one right now that I love. Might have to try one of this brand to see if I like it.

Kristen said...

I've been dying to try these! Also, I'm in need of some new sports bras so why not try to win!

TSRM_ Fortnite said...

I haven't found the best bra for me! I am new on my fitness journey.I would love to try these! The email I check most often is fossil316@aol.com

Tina Dickerson said...

No I haven't found a running bra yet.

tj said...

My go to is Brooks/Moving Comforts Rebound Racer. I’m the opposite of a full D cup (#breastfeedingproblems) and this bra holds all in place. I’m also a sweater so I don’t like padding since it soaks up and then retains all the sweat! And they’re cute. Have always wondered about Handful bras.... will they hold ‘em?

AER-Runs said...

I have a few Ryka bras that I like, but none that I totally love!

Carolyn Tallman said...

I've been loving Fabletics sports bras for the last year or so. Cute, affordable, and comfortable. Never tried Handful bras.

Rachel Hagan said...

I love, love, love Handful bras!

Lauren Davis said...

My go to has been prana bras up until now

Kasey Caroline said...

I run in Juno and rebound racer from Brooks but I'm always looking to try new ones! A good bra is tough to find.

I have yet to find an ideal running bra but currently favor Oiselle’s Verrazano bra

My go-to lately is Panache, but I’ve also had good luck with Brooks (moving comfort)

Ashley Hickey said...

I just discovered Senitas thanks to peeps on Social Media and I'm in love!

I have a sports bra from VS that is my usual one, but I'm not especially crazy about it.

Samantha @ Food Fitness Family Friends said...

I have been wanting to try handful bras. I hear they are amazing!

Stephanie Abdon Fulton said...

I like my adidas and New Balance ones. I seem to like shoes from some companies and clothes from others, but not both. Weird.

Subby SNF said...

I have not and still searching. Always on a budget so try to give a brand a try every now and then.

Nichole said...

I have been loving the Under Armour Seamless Women's Sports Bra. It's strappy, supportive, and padded! Love it! Handful bras look like they have the same qualities. Hopeful to win a Handful!

Cassi said...

I have tried a few different sports bra brands but I don’t have a favorite yet. I’d love to win a Handful bra to try it out!

Kristi Blount said...

Oh, I’ve never tried these bras before! I always wear the Nike Pro bras, but would love to try these!

Unknown said...

I'd love to try these. I've been wearing whatever is on sale when I need one!

Been looking for a good comfy one. The ones I have are either to tight or get super uncomfortable as you wear them.

Kmcgovney122 said...

This would be a huge upgrade from my target sports bras!

I like adjustable seamless bras they are hard to find

Jackey Deschamps said...

Underarmour eclipse

Ashley said...

I actually REALLY love Nike bras. I know that Nike can be hard to fit for a lot of people (myself included) but for a small chested person like me, their triangle top bras are perfect!

Unknown said...

I've been following this company and want to try these bras!! :)

nemethe said...

I can't wait to try these bras!!

Anonymous said...

Moving Comfort, for me! I've never tried Handful, but I'd love to.

Rosa said...

Lululemon! But always looking to try new ones!

caroline said...

You know, I'm still trying to figure that one out!

Ruby said...

I love Lululemon, but they can be a bit tight sometimes. Interested to try these!

Missy said...

I have wanted to try these for awhile but the price keeps me away. I have such a tough time spending money on myself. But I need to find something because the only chafing that I had during Javelina was from my sports bra.

Sonia Abraham said...

I use the Brooks Fine form. It’s the only one that doesn’t have a uniboob, has a back closure (no hernia taking it off), can be worn cross back or regular, has enough coverage for no headlights but doesn’t have removable liners that get crumpled after one wash, and is flattering.

Silver Jade Deutch said...

I currently run in lulu energy bras. Never tried these!

Ashley B. said...

No, I have not!

Tessa said...

I love my Brooks with the adjustable strap. I’m excited that some of the Handful brad have that as well!

nstinch54 said...

I have a Nike sports bra that I bought years ago, but I haven't been able to find it again in any stores or know the exact style to get it online. But I've been wanting to try Handful for a while!

Olivia S said...

So far I love my skirt sports and lorna jane bras. But I'd love tongive Handful a try.

Brooks Juno, super comfortable. I have never had an issue on my long runs.

amkj2002 said...

I was just given a SheFit bra that I like, but most other bras are either not supportive enough or feel like they're squeezing the life out of me!

sarah said...

I don't have a go-to sports bra, this looks like a good one to try.

Meridith said...

Hey Carlee! I had the opportunity to meet the ladies from Handful at TRE and try the Y-back bra - it is AH-MAZING. I love their products and I'm definitely interested in getting more. :)

Alice Minx said...

I'm always trying out new bras looking for the perfect one. When you're always moving, twisting, and bending, you want something that;s comfortable and supportive

Elle said...

I have a few sports bras I like but am not brand loyal.

Brenda said...

I feel like my comments haven’t been posted, so sorry if this is a repeat, just making sure I’m posted and entered.

Anyway: I tend to just get whatever sports bra is on sale like Target or VS Sport. I want to try these tho

Heather said...

i bought some zensah ones that are okay, but not very supportive. i need a go-to! i've been meaning to try handful
