Here's How to Find the Right Sports Bra for You
Posted in: FITNESS
Working out, despite having a lot of pros, can also have some cons. When you exercise, your breasts also tend to go up and down... side to side, mimicking your movement. When done rigorously and unsupported, A cup breasts move about an inch and a half and a D cup bounces to approximately three inches more. The stakes of having saggy boobs, are well, high. But wearing a good sports bra can ultimately cut the movement in half.
According to Joanna Scurr, PhD, a biomechanist at the University of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom, "Any permanent stretching of these [breasts] can cause the breasts to droop." Hence, the need to find the right sports bra for you is quite essential for the health and for fitness, too.
Below, we'll share with you some tips on how to find the sports bra that wil fit your needs (and size):
Tip #1: The Right Cup Size
When finding a sports bra, it's quite important that the item you're looking for has appropriate cup sizing, and not just having a small, medium or large label. Also, it's important for a specific sports bra to have support for each breasts, just like how normal bras have underwires.

This is especially important when you're into high-intensity workouts such as Mixed Martial Arts where you move back and forth as well as side to side almost occasionally.
