Today, we are talking about Bra’s on Run Mommy Run. Considering that 75% of my readers are female, it’s a conversation topic that is most relevant. But here is my warning, if you are not comfortable reading about bras and bra issues, this page isn’t for you. You might be more interested in other topics, such as fuel for running, or the race recap to my favorite race of the year.
So, if you are reading this still, I’m assuming you are either female or you read my warning and proceeded anyway, or both! Anyhow, let’s get to it.
A good sports bra for your workouts is as essential as a good bra for putting together a fashionable outfit. Although the functions of both these types are somewhat different, they are both needed to support “the girls” as Stacy & Clinton on “What Not To Wear” used to call them!
Usually, I blog about tips on staying “fit, but on today’s post, I’m talking about how to “fit” a proper bra so that you stay comfortable and supported all day.
Advantage Of A Well-Fitting Bra?
Wearing a bra is one of woman’s milestones in life. As tweens/teens, we are very excited about wearing them (at least I was) until you realize that they are not always comfortable to wear. However, a good fitting bra is the foundation for a great outfit. If you loved to watched What Not To Wear as much as I did, you’ve most definitely learned how a bra can make or break an outfit. Lifting “those girls” will make you look slimmer. Love’em or hate them, we wear them day in, day out. Wearing a bra becomes extra important when doing low or high impact sports.
Why Wear A Sports Bra?
We all know (at least I hope we do) that it’s important to wear a sports bra when working out, no matter what cup size you are. This is to prevent breasts from bouncing, which could lead to tissue damage (oh no, we don’t want that). Also, sport bras are made of material designed to wick away sweat. There are so many choices for sports bras these days, with various colours, styles and price points, it would be inexcusable not to own one if you are into working out.
What ever reason you wear a bra, wether it be under your regular business clothes or under your workout tank, they can sometimes be uncomfortable which leads me to the next section… bra’ blems.
What’s Your Bra’blem?
Personally, I hate anything constricting. When I get home, I remove everything that seems to put pressure on my body, including my rings, socks, and yes, even my bra.What's your Bra'blem, and quick tips on how to fix them! Click To Tweet
My bra’blem is gaping cups. I usually tighten my straps so that I don’t get any gaping, but maybe I’m tightening my straps too much? I think I’m due for some new bras soon. I’ll consider taking Third Love‘s advice and try going with their signature 1/2 cup sizes.
Third Love have provided me with a great infographic that explains common bra problems about fit issues and quick tips on how to resolve them. I found the tips useful so I’m sharing it with you.
