Sports bras are an essential part of womens gym wear. They are so much more than just a fashion accessory or item to coordinate your other gym clothes; they are an essential piece of your gym kit. Sports bras offer vital support and protection to prevent breast sagging. Whether working out at a high or low impact, a well fitted sports bra is essential to prevent tissue and ligament damage to the breasts. They also offer extra comfort and reduce movement when working out.
Breasts move around from side to side and up and down. Ideally, a sports bra prevents this movement, not by compressing them, but by offering correct support. A sports bra needs to be well fitted and is worth it's weight in gold to prevent painful breast injury and prevent stretch marks and sagging. If you're working hard to tone your beach body and keep yourself healthy, you don't want to result in damaged breasts. With the correct clothing, you can look and feel great when working out, and after.
Vanity means we are willing to splash the cash on the latest leggings and trainers, but often our sports bras can't be seen so we're willing to put up with the same one we've been using for the past 5 years or so. Similarly to standard bras, and other supportive clothing, such as trainers, this means that we are not getting the support we require. Our body shape changes and we need to change our sports bras frequently because of this, and also because regular wearing and washing will mean that the bra loses some it's support too.
Spending money on something that can rarely be seen and that we are just going to sweat in can seem like a waste of money, but it isn't. You want to limit the movement of the breast tissue during exercise to keep them looking and feeling their best.
It's worth trying different styles of support bras to see what suits you. Find a style that you are comfortable with and that doesn't feel too restricting. You may even want different bras for different activities, that's for you to decide. Some sports bras have straps which can be adjusted, others don't. You will know what feels right for you when you try a variety.
