When running, wearing a sports bra is essential. Women who exercise without proper support run the risk of irreparable damage to the breast tissue and ligaments.
Wearing a sports bra can reduce the movement of the breasts by 75 percent while running, so a bra is an essential part of your running gear!
The bras for runners are designed in such a way that maximum support is given to the bust of the runner during the vertical and horizontal movements. The impact of the movements is limited by the sports bra, without restricting the freedom of movement.
Finding the right sports bra
To find the right bra, your search for the best sports bra deserves your full attention. What kind of model do you want? Do you want thick straps or rather the thinner version? Do you want a bra in a solid color or with a print?
A good sports bra for female runners completely covers the breasts. Normally no neckline should be visible and if there is visible breast tissue on the sides, the bra is quite probably too small. The garment itself should not show any wrinkles or dents. If that is the case, then it is very likely that the sports bra is too big for you. The straps of the bra should fit well over your shoulders, without giving too much pressure on the skin. There must, however, be a certain amount of pressure, since the straps should not slip off your shoulders while doing your runs.
Sport bras and Intensity
Which sports bra is best for you also depends on the intensity of your sports activities. If you do sports activities with a low intensity (for example yoga), you need lower compression and less thick material than medium intensity activities (eg Nordic walking) or high intensity activities, such as running.
