A good sports bra is one of the most important pieces of kit when exercising – especially if you're top heavy. Without proper support, your breasts move an average of 10cm in 3 different directions (up and down, side to side and forwards and backwards) during exercise.
Hello pain, chafing and eventual sagging :(
Dr Joanna Scurr from the Department of Sport and Exercise Health at Portsmouth University, who has done a range of studies on breast health, reiterates why it's so important for bigger-busted ladies to get proper support:
- Breasts have no muscle
- The wrong bra = pain!
- Bad support compromises technique
So ladies with the big breasts heed these wise words:
- Avoid sports bras that you pull on overhead
- Find a rigid underband
- Avoid too much elastication in the fabric
- Do the bounce test
- Focus on wide shoulder straps
