Swing freely and protect your assets! July 27 2017
Are you guilty of wearing your normal every day bra? Golf, after all, is a sport, and like any form of exercise can cause damage to the fatty tissue that makes up the breast. Because of this, once it's damaged or stretched, exercise cannot help the breast to regain its original firmness and condition.
Sports scientist, Dr Joanna Scurr from the University of Portsmouth, discovered that a supporting sports bra will prevent 'bouncing' and therefore stretching of the sensitive breast tissue by 74% compared to just 38% from a normal bra.
The ENELL LITE sport bra is ideal for golf. It's made from high-performance, breathable microfibre that transports moisture away from the body, keeping you dry and comfortable. The flat, seamless cups provide firm support for the bust – even in larger sizes – and moulds to the body's contours so that it doesn't interfere with your swing.
ENELL LITE sports bra is priced at NZD$106.95 and and available in black, white, ecru and pink colours, Cups A-G and beyond, they even do custom sizes. Stockist: sportsbra.co.nz with free delivery in NZ and Australia
Consider the following when buying a sports bra for Golf:
If the bra binds your breasts, that’s a good thing as long as you can still breathe! It helps in your swing and comfort. Just be sure that it doesn’t bind your neck. This type will get very uncomfortable after a few holes.
- Buy only solid colors. The others may look prettier but under a white shirt – bad idea.
- Look at the back design of your sports bra. A criss cross pattern works well but be careful of how close the straps are to your neck. If the straps cut too close, the strap will most likely not be covered by your shirt. Another bad idea!
- Some sports bras are cut lower at the underarm which really help prevent any rubbing and rashes.
