Here's just a portion of what she had to say: -For most women, the sports bra is the most important piece of equipment they buy. However, many women still aren't getting what they need out of their bra. This becomes especially problematic for women with large breasts. For some women, Enell sports bras have become the solution.Bras seem to come in all the wrong sizes, whether you are very big breasted or not. Enell has fixed this problem, by having an easy-to-use size chart and more sizes than a normal bra. They have bras that fit women from 32C - 50DDD. However, they also will make custom bras! If there isn't a bra your size, they'll make you one. Enell bras are the best support I have ever seen in bras. There is little-to-no motion at all, even during running or jumping. Through use of both compression and encapsulation, Enell bras are as close as you can come to leaving your chest at home.Jesslyn Bass Running/ Jogging Editor Chicago Sun TimesJanuary, 2005 Tidbits about the Stars from their Trainer Trainer Kathy Kaehler Reveals the workout secrets of actress- Michelle Pfeiffer, model Claudia Schiffer, Friends star Jennifer Aniston, movie star Julia Roberts and actress and producer Drew Barrymore.

Acting out the high-speed scenes would call for real strength and stamina. Drew was never a fan of working out, so when she came to me two months ago, we started out simply, walking on the treadmill at 3.5 miles per hour. Then we added 3-pound weights to strengthen her upper body. After a couple of weeks, I tried to get her to jump rope. Her face told me this was the last thing on Earth she wanted to do. Later she admitted that high-impact exercises hurt her chest. So I gave her an ENELL sports bra, a tight vest with eye-hook fastenings. Drew tried it on and jumped around, and nothing moved. She was so excited. "This thing's going to change my life", she said. Did it ever. That day she jumped rope and ran a quarter of a mile. Now she's comfortable exercising – and she's fit to battle crime.- Kathy Kaehler, fitness trainer. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Runner's World August 2000 Full Support, 10 Great Sports Bras for Large-Breasted Women Our top 10: ENELL Sports Bra.

In terms of body image, I am in a much better place now. My relationship with my body, view of my body and my self esteem are much better than when I was younger. I used to slouch over because I was so tall, now I stand tall. In high school, I was so self-conscious because I had very large breasts and back then they had no good bras at all. When I used to jog at practice, there would always be crowds watching. Instead of swinging my arms at my side, I used to pull my shirt out with my hand and hold it out because I knew that my breasts were bouncing and I didn't want anyone to notice them. If I'd had a good bra like the ENELL bra, I would [have] had my head high, my shoulders back and my arms swinging, not thinking about whether people were looking at me bouncing. It would have completely changed my mind-set, I could have been building myself up and thinking about how I was going to beat my opponent, not about my bouncing breasts." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Extra HipFall 2000 Under – Where?

Donohue Dear Dr. Donohue:A woman wrote inquiring about sports bras for large-chested women. I suffered the same pain until I found out about ENELL, a mail-order company that specializes in sports bras for large-chested women. -AnonReply:I'm sure many women will appreciate that you shared that information with us. Rarely a week goes by without a letter asking me for a solution to the pain that large-chested women endure not only when exercising but also when doing their daily chores. -Dr. Donohue --------------------------------------------------------------------------------Parenting April 1997 ENELL SPORTS BRA. This no-nonsense bra offers serious support, particularly for extremely large-breasted women. Front hook-and-eye closures make it easy to get into this designed-to-be-tight garment. Ten sizes to fit 32B to 50DDD*.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Women's Sports and FitnessAugust 1997 Although not yet a household name, ENELL fills a giant (so to speak) demand for providing large-chested women with adequate support. "I love this bra" said one size-D runner. "After 10 miles, I was still not aware that I even had boobs." Available in four colors, the bra comes with a unique up-the-front hook-and-eye closure system, which makes getting it on and off as easy as wearing a jacket. The shoulder straps are wide and comfortable, and the satinlike material, while far from superior at wicking (this has been corrected with our new high tech Naturexx fabric) provides serious motion control while equally distributing weight. This bra is also ideal for postoperative breast reconstruction patients looking for comfortable support and compression during recovery.
