So you are ready to start your workout plan…. You’ve your shoes, apparel, iPod, and accessories… you have everything you need right? Wait do you have the support that you need? You know… support? No, I’m not talking about your family and friends (although that is important) I am talking about the other support… you know…for your “girls”.
Contrary to belief every cup size needs adequate support and this is where style truly comes into play. The style of will determine the type of support that you need.
For example walking or yoga will require a low-impact sports bra while a brisk hike will require medium-impact support. If you are a runner or doing high level aerobics then you will require high-impact support.
Some basic things to keep in mind when shopping for a sports bra:
- The wider the band on the foundation of the bra the better the support
- Wicking fabrics help remove moisture from the skin
- Wider straps provide better support
I have personally have fallen in love with the Women’s Armour Bra because they not only make stylish pieces, they have color coded the cup sizes, added special material to decrease chaffing, and they provide a neat video on their site describing the mechanics of the bra.
Take a peek at the video below.
