Choosing the right sports bra

Running, jumping, with each exercise step, your breasts not only move side to side but up and down and in and out. Breast are made of soft tissue, therefore permanent stretching can cause the breasts to droop. A good sports bra cuts down on movement, gives supports and comfort while we pursue our fitness goals.

Your breast defense is a good offense!

Maximize your lift with these tips:

1. Compression vs encapsulation

For smaller cup sizes (A and B) or for low-to-moderate-impact workouts choose compression or shelf bra style.

Sports bras with individual cups / encapsulation are better for larger-breasted women as weight is evenly distributed.

3. Straps

Larger breast women should look for bras with wide shoulder straps, preferably padded. Padded straps provide comfort while wide straps distribute the weight better.  Racerback straps anchor the bra closer to the body also providing more support.

All in all, your bra should fit snugly, slightly tighter than a regular bra, but still allow you to comfortably take a deep breath.
Now you can work out with confidence!
