A Guide to Picking the Right Activewear & Sportswear

Sporty and Fabulous

Sneakers, check. Smartwatch, check. Water bottle, check. But wait, where’s your sports bra? And is it suitable for the kind of activity you’re getting set for? Are your tights or shorts appropriate for your sport?

Slipping into your sports bra is as important as changing into sneakers before working out. While bras are essential, choosing comfortable bottoms helps avoid chafing and optimizes your performance to a large extent too. Oh, and how can we forget cute and comfortable tank tops in colours that suit your fitness mood for the day!

We’re talking all about getting fit while looking and feeling fab, read on to know more.

All You Need to Know About Sports Bras

Sporting activities involve movement and impact that may affect your breast tissue in the long run and avoiding discomfort is the best way to perform better while feeling your very best. It is a known fact that 80% of women wear the wrong bra size, but it doesn’t have to be this way. At amanté, we’re all about the perfect fit and Fit Calculator is here to help you.

1. Low Impact Sports Bras

Activities like walking, yoga or pilates don’t involve a lot of up and down or rigorous motion. They're slower and more controlled movements that cause a lower impact on your breasts. Hence, low-impact sports bras are an appropriate choice for these activities.

Low impact sports bras hold your breasts in place and keep you comfortable too. These bras typically feature a cup-less design and restrict movement by compressing the breasts tightly against the chest.

2. Medium to High Impact Sports Bras

The unique motion of running or jumping causes your breasts to move swiftly. This motion puts your breast ligaments under a huge strain. Without the right support, you are sure to experience discomfort and some cases, damage.

Some research shows that a lot of women change the way they run or reduce the effort they put into an exercise because of the discomfort or embarrassment they feel when wearing a wrong or ill-fitting bra.

Medium to high impact sports bras become the perfect choice for you. They restrict breast movement and keep them in place while you work out, run or jog. These bras are made with a more defined cup structure design to hold and support each breast while compressing them in place.
