Sports bra buying guide
Finding the perfect fitting sports bra can be difficult, but
if you know exactly what type of sports bra you should be looking for it can
make your search a lot easier. Every woman should have a sports bra in their
lingerie drawer as you just never know when you might need one, even activities
such as walking can require one. It is important to wear a sports bra
regardless of your breast size but the bigger your bust the more you will need
to wear one as you will require more support.
Why Is It So Important To Wear A Sports Bra
So why is it so important to wear a sports bra when
exercising? During physical activity a women’s chest moves considerably, probably
a lot more than you may originally think. The breasts generally move in a
figure-of-8 pattern which means they will be moving up and down, left to right
and forwards and backwards and as you can imagine, this will not be doing your
breasts any favours. Breasts are made from fatty tissue which is supported by
ligaments and these stretch over time, particularly if you are exercising and
not getting the correct support. Wearing a sports bra cannot eliminate this all
together but wearing one during exercise will slow the process down.
It is so important that you make sure you get the correct
fit when buying a sports as if it is slightly too big it won’t be able to give
you the correct support you need or prevent chest movement. We would advise
that you find a sports bra that comes in regular bra sizes as this way you will
be able to find a more accurate fit.
There are a variety of sports bras available and
these all come with different levels of support. Below is a guide to show you
what level of support you will need for different activities. All of our
