Are you wearing the right sports bra? With so much choice out there, finding the perfect style for your sport can sometimes be a little overwhelming.
But getting it right is imperative. According to researchers at The University of Portsmouth, a woman's breasts can move up to 15cm when running. This is not only painful, but can also lead to damage and sagging due to the pressure on the breast tissue.
Choosing The Right Sports Bra
A good sports bra is designed to completely eliminate unwanted movement. In addition, a good quality bra top will be breathable, sweat-wicking and chafe-free, so you can exercise at any intensity with zero distraction.
Finding the perfect match depends primarily on two things - your cup size and the activity you're doing.
