Anyone been down the gym lately? I have to say i am a regular gym goer and especially love aerobics, body attack and so on (i basically love most classes). You will regularly see me walking to the gym with my gym bag running shoes and sports kit ready to sweat it out, the one thing you will not see me without is my sports bra, i was not blessed with the largest chest but would still find it too uncomfortable to exercise without it. Because i really need my sports bra, i question why and how so many women exercise without a sports bra
or without a bra at all?
We are told by many sports bra manufacturers that a good sports bra is as good as a good pair of running shoes, yet 73% of women who exercise regularly do not wear sports bras (and a few do not wear bras at all). There are no muscles in the breasts, they are made up of ligaments called suspensory cooper’s ligaments. Because these are not elastic, during exercise the breasts bounce and pull on the ligaments causing them to stretch beyond repair and lead to irreversible breast sag. Not wearing a supportive bra during exercise can also cause pain and discomfort, especially for women with larger breasts.
Most sports bras currently on the market offer comfort and support to runners. Probably the most popular sports bras manufacturer is Shock Absorber, they offer different levels of support for all activities and cater for all sizes of breast and control, offering specific bras for specific sports. We offer sports bra from leading manufacturers including Freya
