We had real runners put loads of apparel through the paces to solve problems like painful bra straps, tops that stay put and more.
Who hasn’t purchased a new pair of shorts and excitedly gone for a run only to find yourself pulling them down constantly as your thighs chafe, chafe, chafe with each step? Or you have a cute new top that keeps riding up your torso with every burst of speed? If I wanted to show off my belly, I wouldn’t be wearing this shirt in the first place!
We found real runners in search of foolproof running gear—items that would solve their individual issues. We gathered more than 100 pieces from both big running apparel brands and smaller ones, and our testers hit the streets, trails and treadmills to find what works. If you have any of these same gripes, you may have luck with these problem solvers!
