Do you like wearing sports bra when sports? How to choose best sports bras?

When I first started running, I bought a variety of beautiful sports bras.

Because everyone loves those slender and beautiful girls on TV or online pictures. And the women wearing gorgeous bra in sports, and all looking so great!

When I bought them, I found that there were two wild horses in the chest when running with them. I miserably expected that there would be minor chest strains when running with them. The big problem is that the chest will soon fall to the stomach!

Why You Should Buy Sports Bras?

In normal exercise, our girls’ breasts will always move up and down, left and right, if there is no underwear support, they are likely to damage the elastic fiber tissue in the breasts, causing permanent damage, resulting in Drooping or deformed chest, etc. Are the sisters scared when they hear it?

Sports bras refers to bras that can provide extra support for girls’ chests during exercise and fitness.

It is stronger than ordinary bras, which can reduce chest movement to the greatest extent, relieve chest discomfort, and reduce the potential harm of high-intensity exercise to chest ligaments.

How To Choose Best Sports Bras?

Choose sports bras with different exercise intensity

Different intensities of exercise have different requirements for sports bra. The bra comfort and flexibility required for different impact levels and sports are also different.

a.Low impact

General fitness, such as hiking, yoga, Pilates.

The relatively small exercise intensity means that the fixed requirements for the Sports Bra are correspondingly reduced. Generally, a simple fixed bra is sufficient.

The simple fixing bra is fixed by a layer of elastic mesh fabric, which is a pressure type fixing. It is advisable to choose products with high cotton content to avoid pressure on the chest.

b.Medium impact

Increase physical vitality, technical skills, such as: skiing, golf, dancing, rock climbing.

Medium-strength sports bras mainly relies on elastic fabrics to form a certain pressure on the breasts to achieve a fixed effect.

Compared with low-intensity sports underwear, the cutting requirements are more stringent, requiring full consideration of factors such as breast shape, structure, and the stress on the shoulders and backs.

c.High impact

Increase cardiopulmonary ability, plasticity, such as: running, football, tennis, etc.

The chest shaking is the most intense during high-intensity exercise, and the support and fixation requirements for sports underwear are the highest. It requires both good fixation and no obvious discomfort and pressure on the chest.

The Style Of The Best Sports Bra

a. V-shaped belt buckle bra

This kind of bra seems to be more suitable for sisters with wide shoulders or A cups. Don’t try them lightly above B cups.

Because the strength of the chest is finally added to the two narrow shoulder straps, it will either wear the skin of the shoulder or cause shoulder muscle soreness.

The advantage of this type of bra is because of the adjustable shoulder straps and buckles, you can always find a suitable adjustment to gather the chest, whether it is up and down or left and right to make the chest more fixed.

The possible problem is also in the buckle. The plastic buckle and the metal ring will rub against the skin during running over a certain distance.

Because the body weight changes slightly every day, and the degree of suitability of the clothes will also change, the daily running of 10 kilometers may wear out the skin. It is recommended for less than 10 kilometers.

b. V-shaped racerback swimming race bra

This kind of wide shoulder strap bra without buckle is much wider than the narrow shoulder strap bra with buckle on the front, if you choose the right size.

This kind of bra can provide moderate binding on the chest, the widened shoulder strap can withstand the impact of running, and the one-piece V-shaped design can prevent the shoulder strap from sliding, which is a boon for sisters with plump, narrow shoulders or slippery shoulders.

If you have to find a bad place to talk about it, it may be a bit laborious to put on and take off. But thinking about it, I will enjoy it all the way, who cares about the moments of putting on and taking off.

c.One piece bra

It seems simple, but it’s ever-changing. For example, for a younger sister with a smaller breast, you can buy the simplest one.

And for younger sisters who have a sweet burden, you can choose a one-piece style with a separate cup inside. It’s easy to put on and take off without thinking about it.

The only problem is that this kind of bra is usually easier to relax, depending on whether you cherish it enough, or are willing to change the silver frequently.
