Sports bras are critical pieces of exercise equipment. Below are seven facts worth knowing before you purchase your next sports bra.
Sports bras are as critical as performance running shoes, especially for larger-breasted women.
Get measured yearly
A woman’s size can change quickly due to weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, age and, sadly, just plain gravity. A good fit will help ensure proper support.
Like footwear, a single sports bra style does not fit all shapes and sizes. If she can’t make comparisons, she may not buy anything.
Sport determines support
Call out different features and level of necessary support for different activities. Different sports require during movements, which can have an effect on what type of sports bra you need.
Keeping skin dry is critical for comfort. Many sports bras are made with moisture-wicking material that can help keep you dry even when you start to break a sweat.
One is enough
Even large-breasted women do not need to wear two sports bras to achieve support. A good sports bra should have enough support to accommodate women of all sizes.
Replace and rejoice
A sports bra should be replaced every six to 12 months depending on the usage and frequency. Fabric and elastics break down after each wear and wash, and just like running shoes, they will stop working effectively and can potentially cause discomfort.
