Your boobs are calling out for the right bra! Whether you’re an A or E cup, without the right support, gravity will take its toll. Stop the drop by making sure you’re wearing the right bra for your activity.
When exercising, whether it’s yoga, spin class or boxercise, with each stride, jump or pose, breasts move not only up and down but also side to side – tracing a butterfly pattern. Did you know that an unsupported A cup travels approximately 1.5 inches in each direction per stride, and a D cup bounces 2-3 inches?
Wearing a good sports bra can reduce that movement by up to 50% for all cup sizes, helping you make the most of your workout without the risk of black eyes. Jump squats won’t just be working your glutes and hamstrings — your breasts are made of soft tissue, held up by internal Cooper’s ligaments (a web of springy coils that act as a rebound). Don’t cause unnecessary damage, stay pert by investing in a sports bra that gives you structure and support.
What’s Your Bra Type?
There are two main types of sports bras — compression bras, which look like super-tight crop tops and flatten your breasts against your chest, or encapsulation bras, which look much like your regular bra but are made with a more breathable material. As a general rule, compression bras are better for those with a smaller chest (A-C cups), or for low-impact exercise. Encapsulation bras with built-in cups are more suited to those with a bigger cup-size, or for high-impact training.
If you like to mix up your training routine with different activities, it’s smart to equip yourself with several styles – ones with more support for high-impact exercise and less constrictive bras for those Zen days.
Whether it’s yoga, Pilates or barre you love doing, our Shape Seamless Sports Bra is a great low-impact option for those less-intense workouts. With removable cups, dual cross-back straps and a longline elasticated underband, it provides flattering coverage so that you can be confident from top of the Mountain pose through to Downward Dog.
Made using lightweight, breathable fabric, it comes complete with sweat-wicking technology to keep up with your every movement.
For many women, finding a sports bra which offers sturdy support throughout medium-impact sports like cycling, dance and cardio classes is like finding the Holy Grail. For anyone who has ever felt like getting in and out of a sports bra is akin to escaping from a straitjacket – our Control Sports Bra is the answer.
Bringing support, style and comfort to the table, this bra has got your back, literally. Designed with super-soft fabric and stay-dry sweat-wicking technology, it’s time to step up your studio style.
Because the only bounce you want is in your step. When it comes to high-impact training like HIIT and CrossFit, wearing a super-supportive sports bra is key and should be the first thing you pack in your gym bag.
