What is a sports bra?
Sports bras are designed specifically for exercise and impactful activities. They give you extra support and reduce movement during sport. While regular bras are designed to give you comfort while allowing natural motion, sports bras are designed to minimize any additional movement and keep your breasts in place.
Today’s sports bras are made with comfortable materials and fabrics like moisture-wicking microfiber and breathable fibres, which handle sweat better, so you’re all set to go all out on those jumping jacks and treadmill runs.
Myth: It’s okay to wear a normal bra when working out.
Busted: NO. Sporting activities usually involve movement that is much more aggressive than regular activity. Hence, a normal bra will not be able to provide the support you need to perform at your best. Sports bras are designed specifically for exercise and impactful activities.
There are different types of sports bras designed for activities that have varying impacts on your breasts. If you haven’t already, check them out here.
