If there is one time when function and comfort are important it’s when choosing the right sports bra. Fact is that the sports bra can be the most important garment when persons with breasts workout. The choice of sports bra should be based on which workout you do and your breast size. 

The top 3 tips

  1. Start with what kind of workout you should do.
    How much jumping and intensity comes with the activity? Read more about different “impacts” in the paragraph below. 
  2. Select material. 
    The breathability of the garment is important to make your workout pleasant. It’s also important that the material has good strength and that it’s not too elastic. Try the sports bra carefully so you can feel that the material feels comfortable and that all the functions helps you to get good support. Keep in mind that the bra should feel a little tight when you buy it, then it fits extra well in movement and activity. 
  3. Choose design.
    Pretty and functional. It’s an extra plus when it’s side support and when the straps are a bit wider. It provides both comfort and support. 

High impact, medium impact and low impact
You will come across thes concepts when looking for a new sports bra. What is actually their significance?

High impact is for you who practice very intensive workouts. Maybe you run, do interval training or crossfit. To perform on top under this tough workouts you need maximum support. High impact fits you who have bigger breast because they’re often adjustable and/ or comes with extra support of cup.  

Medium impact is for you that workout with medium intensity. Gym, dance or fast power walks are examples on medium intensity workouts. Medium impact is often tight around the chest.  

Low impact is perfect for you who, for example, take longer walks and have a slower pace on your workouts. This type of sports bra are often seamless. This bra fits you who are looking for something comfortable rather than support-friendly that is given by High impact.

The 3 DON’Ts in the fitting room 

  1. You are stressed!
    Take your time, you breathe fast and gets easily tense when you are stressed. The most important part in the process of testing a new sports bra is to breathe properly. Take deep breaths so you can feel the sports bra fits properly but nice around the chest. 
  2. You don’t jump!
    Don’t stand still and screw around in front of the mirror. Jump with both feet together, vrank with your arms so you feel how the sports bra fits around a moving body. Bend over and make sure that your breast don’t rolls out of the bra.
  3. You don’t evaluate properly
    Sometimes you might buy something because it is more pretty than functional. That is not working with with sports bras. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and that it doesn’t sits too hard or too loose. Your sports bra should give you support, feel soft and at the same time be stable.
