Fitness and health are not a fad but more like a lifestyle. Healthy skin, physical health and wholesome lives are a few benefits of a healthy lifestyle. That said, fitness does come with its own set of obstacles for women, particularly in the breast and bra department.
Fitness activities sometimes corpse of unique motions like running, jumping and other movements that may cause your breasts to move. Depending on your level of intensity in the workout, the breasts can sometimes move up and down as much as eight inches. This puts the connective tissues that help support your breasts under a lot of strain.
A good sports bra for workouts can cut that movement in half—which is key to protecting the breast tissue from damage.
Shopping for and finding supportive sports bras in India might be a task. Choosing the right bra requires you to consider a few factors, and we are here to help you pick the right sports bra for high, medium and low-intensity activity.
All About Intensity
- High-impact sports bras are great for running, jump rope and other rigorous workouts.
- Medium impact sports bras are excellent for power yoga, brisk walking, and pilates.
- Low-impact sports bras are great to wear at home, throw on before running errands or slip into before going out for a light stroll.
Strap on It
When choosing a sports bra, remember to look for an adjustable strap that can support your breasts properly and be adjusted. There should be about a one-inch give, and the strap should not slip off your shoulders or dig into them.
Your breasts need to breathe, you know. Make sure that the sports bra is made with breathable sweat-wicking fabrics. Having panels is a plus because they ensure zero spillage.

When is it time to replace your bra?
- Your breasts move when you work out and the bra is not as supportive as when you first bought it.

That's all from us. You can always keep this bookmarked for the next time you're going sports bra shopping.
