All my life, I’ve had this weird sensation that jogging bras were ugly, utterly and irreversibly ugly.
Stupid as it may sound, I’ve had this thought for a long long time. Until one day when I decided to start running. I needed proper attire and adequate lingerie, so I went out to buy some, thinking I may have to make a major compromise on aesthetics.
Great was my surprise when I discovered some great designs that really did the job. Basically, you need proper running bras because, as you know, breasts are in fact fatty tissue that is supported only by skin and some ligaments, that no, are not elastic. Since there’s no elasticity there, you must avoid stretching the skin through repetitive bouncing.
Ordinary bras reduce sagging with 32% and sports bras with 20%, so bra necessity is clear enough. Not wearing the right bra ensues less protection, gives you breasts, neck and back pains and basically, it will suck.
Still, supportive doesn’t equal smashing. I discovered many bras that just squash your breasts, until one day they become like figs, and as delicious as they are, you don’t want your breasts looking like that. The fabric should never overheat, should be stretchy and if you also get removable cups, you’re in.
So what’s good this year in matters of sports bras?
