I have been victimized by one sole item created by the people of Maidenform: A pink Girls Sports Bra. This wicked item has happened to be something my dear mother had bought for me while merely shopping at Kohl’s. As innocent as a “Maidenform Sports Bra – Girls (Size Small)” may sound, I assure you, it is not.
Hello, I am Maddie Wang. I am a developing girl in the midst of my teenage years. As a 10th grader from Mounds View High School, I represent the Varsity girl’s tennis team of my school. I am no B-Squad paddle-waddle girl. No JV girl that is playing “for fun”. I am a full-out, elite member of the Mounds View Varsity Girl’s Tennis team, positioned at 4th singles. So you see, this Maidenform Sports Bra has caused me substantial annoyances over the course of the tennis season. First, let me tell you, I have a collection of sports bras of your brand. They are all the same model, just different colors. I own Yellow, Green, Purple, and the dreaded Pink. Whenever I wear a yellow, green, or a purple Maidenform sports bra, things are great while playing my game. No one says a thang about me and my bra. However, whenever I throw on my pink Maidenform sports bra, one truly terrible thing happens. The sports bra leaks pink dye all over my shirt.
Now, it doesn’t just let out a few drops. Just so you know, I sweat a lot when I play tennis, more than the average tennis player. So like usual, the pink Maidenform sports bra absorbs my armpit-back-chest body sweat. But thereafter, that sweat is then transformed into pink and starts to dribble down; no, utterly soak through my shirt. Utterly SOAK! Running down the tennis court with a pink-armpit-stained shirt is not fun. Especially, if I happened to wear a white shirt that day.
Don’t believe me? Take a look. Here’s me at Sections Girls 2014 Tennis tournament sporting a sexy smile.
This is just one tennis picture. Indeed, many of my tennis photos are cursed with this pink plague.
Also, did you know there were about a hundred people: parents, coaches, and players watching the Girl’s Sections and also Girl’s State Tennis Tournament live? Did you know I was wearing this same sports bra both tournaments? They all saw this girl with pink armpits paddling around this fuzzy yellow ball. A sweaty girl who sweat so hard that pink ran down her pits. The embarrassment was too much.
I would also like to express my anger on the sports bras straps. As you must know, there is some sort of ‘scaly’ texture atop the sports bra’s straps. It’s apparently called a Ruched design or a Sketchy design. Pretty sketchy, I agree. Anyhow, everybody has always said I was putting this bra on inside out. “The scaly-bumpy side is supposed to be on the inside, not outside, silly Maddie!” But no, this scaly-bumpy crap is on BOTH THE INSIDE AND THE OUTSIDE of the frickin sports bra straps! Stupid cool” little modern ‘ruched’ designs make me have to deal with these people every frickin day. Screw those straps, Maidenform. Take out that ruched design and make the straps nice and smooth like Nike Sports Bras. Yesss. No more scaly bumpy straps. No more confusion.
Also Maidenform, although this product is called “Maidenform Sports Bra – Girls”, for goodness’ sake, girls have boobs! My golly, make the sports bra thicker!! Every time I get a little cold wearing this little sports bra, two ‘somethings’ appear. I mean, not just appear, but sprout. Seriously, people can see everything there. I’ve had tennis teammates ask me if I’m cold because they see me ‘nipping out’.
Oh Maidenform, I can’t help but express my desperation for you to put extra padding or support, whatever you call it, into the cups of the sports bra. It’s so cold up here in Minnesota, and they never fail to show. I’ve been so embarrassed by this that I’ve had to undertake extreme measures. I’ve had to double layer my sports bras or put bras underneath my sports bra so I don’t show the whole world my Minnesota Twins.
Alas, let me conclude my concerns towards Maidenform and their Girls Sports Bras. I hereby demand the end to the Pink “Maidenform Sports Bra – Girls”. The other colors that I purchased (purple, green, yellow) are A-OK. However, this pink nightmare needs to be put down for good. No other girl should be put through this pink-staining horror. Along with this, please redesign your sports bra! You may think this Ruched/Sketchy design is stylish or something, but let me break it to you, Maidenform, it’s just an inconvenience and it’s not even cool! Just make the straps smooth! Also, please, please, please put actual padding in this sports bra for the sake of girls’ womanhood. Sweet sassy molassy, guys can see my ‘girls’ up to a mile away.
