Wearing a correctly fitted sports bra while working out offers more than just great comfort, it also helps prevent irreversible damage that can lead to “sagging” breast tissue. At Brooks, our mission is simple – inspire women to move with confidence. When women feel their best, there’s no limit to where they can go.
Surprising facts that will change how you feel about sports bras…
80% of women wear the wrong bra size and more than 40% don’t wear a sports bra when exercising
Breast size can alter due to age, pregnancy, or weight change.
Sports bras are as critical as performance running shoes, no matter the breast size.
A correctly fitted sports bra can actually enhance your performance.
Unwanted movement from the breasts during exercise compromises your natural gait cycle. To put it simply, you will be exerting the same amount of effort but not getting as far or as quick as someone who is wearing a correctly fitted sports bra.
Replace and Rejoice
A sports bra should be replaced every 6-12 months depending on usage and frequency. Fabric and elastics break with age and, just like running shoes they will stop working effectively and potentially cause discomfort.
A sports bra is the centre piece of a women’s wardrobe and just as important as her running shoes. We always recommend choosing a sports bra that feels comfortable and provides the correct level of support for the type of activity.
