With my workouts in full swing, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you one of the key things to surviving HIIT or my Zumba Classes training: A BOMB SPORTS BRA! Currently, I am 44D. Now I know that it’s not the biggest size…as far as boobs go. But, my workouts are a lot smoother and less exhausting when my breast are strapped down.
According to Overstock, the benefits of a sports bra (vs. a bathing suit bra or your everyday bra) are:
- Sports bras are best for support during exercise. They are important for maintaining the integrity of the breast wall and the shape of the breast. Too much intense movement can cause ligaments surrounding the breasts to stretch and tear. Much of this damage is irreversible, and it causes drooping, sagging breasts; however, the right sports bra offers enough support to prevent this condition from occurring prematurely.
- Some sports bras now have storage capabilities. With sports bras designed to hold keys and small MP3 players, there is no need for a bag or a pouch around the waist. Especially popular with runners, these sports bras reduce the number of things you have to carry or stash away. With these items invisibly and securely tucked away, you’ll never have to worry about losing them again.
- Sports bras can also be very comfortable. Because full-figure sports bras are designed to work more than to flatter, they offer comfort in ways that regular bras cannot. For example, their increased coverage and wider straps distribute breast tissue evenly. Their general lack of underwires, firm ribbing, and delicate fabrics makes it easier for you to move around. Because they minimize breast movement, sports bras also minimize chafing or rubbing.
