Like running shoes, sports bras should be replaced every 6-12 months in order to perform at their best. Your sports bra should be just as important as your running shoes – you need to look after your girls! Support them, ladies, and help prevent breast droop. When the breast is unsupported during activity, the weight of the tissue, couple with breast movement, causes the ligament to stretch. This can cause both discomfort and permanent damage to the breast tissue. Check out our range of Brooks Sports Bras – supportive and comfortable….
Brooks Moving Comfort Bras – inspiring you to move with confidence
Comfort, fit, support and style – that’s what makes a Brooks Bra so good – they’ve mastered the components that make sports bras great – performance fabric, well-fitting straps and supportive bottom bands – just to name a few. Because we women come in all shapes and sizes, Brooks have kindly captured this ambiguity in a meaningful way and created three collections for us to choose from.
Did you know 8 out 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra?!
Are you wearing the right size? Check out our four fit fundamentals here:
- The band should be snug and comfortable across your back. It should not ride up. You shouldn’t be able to pull the band out more than 5cm. If you can, the bra is too big for you.
- All your breast tissue should be inside the bra cups. If you have any tissue that spills out the top or sides, the cup size is too small. The bra fabric should be smooth. Any wrinkles mean you need to adjust the straps or that the cup size might be too big.
- Straps should not slide or dig into your shoulders. Your bra support shouldn’t feel like it is coming from the straps, if it does, you may need a smaller band size.
- If you are wearing an underwire bra, the underwire should sit on the rib cage, below the breast tissue with the centre panel comfortably flat against the breastbone. Any gaping in the centre indicates you need to go up a cup size.
No matter what size you are, a sports bra is an absolute must.
Get Fitted Frequently
Your breast size can change quickly due to weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, age and yes, just plain gravity. Wearing a good fit sports bra will help ensure proper support.
Choose a Bra for Your Sport
Depending on your sport, you will need a different support bra for different activities – you don’t need the same support for yoga as you do for running. We have plenty of style options in The Sports Room, so try on a few styles to find the one that suits you best.
Choosing a bra that helps keep your skin dry is critical for comfort. The Brooks Moving Comfort Collection sports their exclusive DriLayer fabrics that transfer moisture away from the skin to the outside of the fabric.
Replace your sports bra 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.
