Why the right one is worth every dime
If you’ve ever chaffed around your sports bra band, you know it’s important to make sure your bra fits correctly. It is important that both the band and the cup fit appropriately. The band provides the needed support for the breast tissue and ligaments, while the correct cup size reduces the amount of bounce you feel during your exercise.
Along with chafing, you can also experience pain in your shoulders and back if your bra is not fitting correctly. To make sure your sports bra fits correctly, we recommend these 3 things.
Chances are you will never go on a run without wearing a bra. This makes your bra just as important as your shoes.
Why is the right bra so essential?
The breast tissue is supported only by the cooper’s ligament. The thing about ligaments is that they stretch out over time and don’t pull back in like muscles. For that reason, the less you support that breast tissue, the faster that ligament will stretch out, resulting in breast sag. Having the right sports bra not only prevents the strain put on the cooper’s ligament, but also reduces the discomfort you feel when you exercise.
