The Importance of High-Support Sports Bras for Women
As active women at Southpaw Stitches, we all know the importance of owning good sports bras for our workouts, but do we really know why? Proper support is essential, not only for comfort but also for preventing long-term damage to our breasts. Sports bras are not designed only to protect our modesty but also to protect our breast tissue from damaging movements during exercise.
Whatever your cup size, a supportive, form fitting and comfortable sports bra should be an essential item in every active woman's workout wardrobe.
Breasts are made up of delicate ligaments and connective tissue, which can stretch and eventually cause sagging if not properly supported during physical activity. In fact, recent studies have shown that breasts can move up to eight inches during exercise without proper support. This excessive movement can not only be uncomfortable, but can cause long-term damage to breast tissue. This is where our sports bras come into play.
For low to mid-impact workouts, our Signature Logo Bra is engineered for comfort and flexibility. The logo elastic offers the perfect stretch with a soft plush hand feel. The fabric is a 4-way stretch, moisture-wicking microfiber. This racerback bra offers the right amount of support, shape retention, and flexibility allowing for comfortable movement in sync with you.
For mid to high-impact workouts, our Staple Sports Bra offers the support you need and the security you deserve with a soft feel against your skin. Designed with comfort and function in mind, the neckline is enough coverage to avoid unnecessary slips, while the mesh back allows for breathability. This racerback bra offers unparalleled compression, shape retention, and flexibility.
A supportive sports bra is essential for every active woman to prevent long-term damage and comfort during physical activity. And when you feel your best, you look your best and perform your best. Choosing the right sports bra for your activity level and size is key to achieving maximum support and minimizing movement.
