Why is a sports bra a must?

Why is wearing the right bra size so important? When you cycle or run, you put a lot of pressure on your breasts. Breasts consist of tissue and glands, meaning they lack the muscle mass needed to absorb shocks. That's why it's important to give them the right support. This prevents pain in your breasts, neck, and back. If you have doubts about the benefits of a high-quality sports bra, you've never worn one. The support, comfort, and sturdiness of a premium sports bra are unrivalled!

Why wear a sports bra?

When your body moves, your breasts move too. A regular bra is fine during low-impact activities, but it wasn't designed to absorb the shocks of running, jumping, and cycling. During a high-intensity workout, your breasts bounce in all directions, with no muscles to absorb these shocks. In no time, you could experience: · tears in your breast tissue · painful breasts · neck and back pain · chafing sores · sagging breasts As a result, you’re less likely to stick to your workout goals. Fortunately, the solution is simple: Invest in a supportive sports bra.

A good sports bra fits perfectly

There's a lid for every pot. When it comes to working out, that lid is... a sports bra! Do you have large breasts or small breasts? Do you love running or cycling? A good sports bra should fit perfectly, meaning it should be snug but not too tight. It also shouldn’t shift or chafe. What it should do is minimize up-and-down and side-to-side movement.
