A well fitting sports bras is essential for not damaging breast tissue when you exercise
Finding the right sports bra is key for an enjoyable and pain-free workout. Ill-fitting kit can lead to chafing, a sore lower back or breasts and potentially even longer-lasting damage.
Research has also shown that some women change the way they run depending on the type of bra worn – so a good product will not only provide you with vital support but it could also help you set a new personal best.
When looking to buy a sports bra, it’s important to first consider what you need it for. It sounds obvious but if your sport of choice is high intensity, such as running or HIIT, you’ll need something with high support.
If you’re a yogi, you will want a compressed sports bra to allow for maximum flexibility, while there are also designs for lower impact sports, such as cycling.
