The sports bra is a life-saver for fitness fanatics who need to keep cool in the blazing hot summer months while running and exercising outdoors. Sometimes they can also make you feel a little self-conscious unless you look like a Victoria's Secret model.
So when Girls
star Lena Dunham and Orange Is The New Black
actress Danielle Brooks posted Instagram pictures of themselves rocking the sports bra, we felt inspired.
Lena, who is all about promoting body confidence, posted a paparazzi picture of herself getting her jog on. The empowering shot shows Lena in the middle of a hardcore sweat sesh, as she discovers a new love for running.
"My whole life I have hated running and run like a wounded baby Pterodactyl." Lena joked in the caption.
But her character on the hit show has taken up running, so Lena has decided to tackle the once-hated exercise for the purpose of her performance. Now Lena is in love.
"I'm not about to embrace that triathlon life but it's a true joy to continue getting more connected to my body and its powers." says Lena.
Danielle Brooks, who plays Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson on the hit prison drama-comedy OITNB
, snapped a gym selfie sporting her sports bra.
"Today my inner being told me to turn up the notch on my self-love. I should not be ashamed of my body. I'm not a walking imperfection! I'm a Goddess." Danielle wrote on her Instagram account.
We love these confident posts of body positivity and hope they encourage more women to feel beautiful and comfortable in whatever gym attire they throw on!
