Are your boobs stopping you from working out?

why wear a sports braNearly one in five women say their breasts stop them from participating in physical activity, research from the University of Portsmouth’s Research Group in Breast Health reveals.

The research also found that physical activity levels weren’t influenced by breast size, which suggests the breast could be a barrier to exercise for women across all bra sizes.

Breasts were ranked fourth as a barrier to exercise after lack of energy, time constraints and health reasons. They were ranked above other barriers including cost of exercise, access to facilities, not having the right clothing, not having any company whilst exercising, and feeling embarrassed about doing sport.

The most influential factors preventing women from taking exercise include not being able to find the right sports bra and being embarrassed by excessive breast movement.
