We now how important it is to feel comfortable while you are working out, here are our sports bra top picks.
If you’ve ever gone for a run or powered through a boot camp class, you know finding the right sports bra for your body is more or less crucial. A bra that does not support you propertly can have cause you serious pain, not to mention have you bouncing all over the place.
Amy Sanchez a senior research associate in bio mechanics at the University of Portsmouth in England states “The breast contains no muscle or bone, and its only natural support are the Coopers ligaments — fine ligaments inside the breast — and the skin. Both of these structures can be easily stretched when we move, which may cause discomfort and damage to the breast structure.”
Amy suggest to follow these five tips when looking for the best sports bra for your needs:
An under band that fits securely (it anchors the bra to your torso)
Straps that feel secure but don’t dig into your shoulders
Fabric in front that lies flat against your torso
Cups that fully encase your breasts with no bulging or gaping
For underwire styles: underwire that follows the natural base of your breasts and doesn’t lie on the breast tissue
