How to Choose the Right Sports Bra for the Gym? Avoid Bumpy and Oops Moments!

How to Choose the Right Bra for the Gym?

One of the major problems faced by all the exercising women alike is breast sagging – not only does age make a difference, so does exercising vigorously and regularly. Bra for gym, a good sports bra can cut the movement into half- the breasts move in and out, from side to side, up and down, all in a butterfly pattern. Sagging can be reduced by a major degree by using a good supportive bra that can withstand the movement and can also spare the wearer the embarrassment of a spillage, a malfunction or an accidental bounce-out while at the gym or outdoors.

Strap Length & Cup Size

Well, many women pick up one or two less in strap length and a cup larger than needed while shopping for a sports bra. You should shop your accurate size instead of looking for breast compression imagining that to be more supportive. Compression bras that press your breasts towards the chest wall work well for smaller cup sizes and for low to moderate intensity workouts. Encapsulation bras are bras with molded cups that separate the breasts and can be worn regularly for any kind of workout and best for larger cup sized women. These should be preferred over the former.

Racer Backs & Wide Straps

Between racer-backs and wide straps, if the wearer is small-chested with a smaller cup size, a racer back is ideal as it anchors the bra closer to the body and should preferable be a pullover bra which covers more of the back to provide adequate support whereas, the latter is better for the larger breasted women as it distributes the weight of the breasts evenly and should be the clasp style or the hook-and-eye types that have the adjustability to anchor large breasts.

Since these bras are made of spandex majorly that don’t do harm to the soft tissues of the breasts, they do need to be changed routinely. They undergo wear and tear in every wash and wear. Spandex gives longest life (3-4 months) if hand washed in cold water.

Keep an eye out for breathable fabrics like a knitted mesh that keeps the bounce to a minimum, and allows the breasts to stay ventilated. Nylon blend fabrics handle sweat well, so if you sweat ion the higher side than choose such fabrics.

Ensure your bra keeps the boobs separated, has molded cups or cups that retain their shape even when resting. Opt for padded cups in the compression types of bras where you can hop, skip and jump. Choose crisscross straps if your boobs tend to sway a lot, or if you choose to run very frequently.

Finally when you shortlist your bra in the store, ensure you jump, bend, skip and jog in it trying to feel how well it keeps your assets in place. You can buy lingerie online. Look for bras that specify cup and band sizes for more accurate fittings. Consider a bra that fits on the first hook when you try it as these bras lose elasticity in a while. Check for seamless versions to avoid peeks.
