Professional advice to make sure your sports bra fits properly
Wearing a well-fitting sports bra is one of the most important things a woman can guarantee when exercising.
A poorly fitting sports bra can sometimes take a toll on your performance – no one wants a sports bra that doesn’t provide the right support! Wearing a sports bra that is too loose can lead to excessive breast movement (especially for those who prefer HIIT workouts!) And too tight can cause irritation and sometimes prevent proper breathing.
It is important to find a sports bra that is right for you. This includes finding the right type for your preferred form of exercise, replacing the product regularly to make sure it offers the maximum amount of support, and of course, making sure it is adjusting properly.
With Tikiboo’s sports bra products making their mark in the industry, we’ve thought to summarize some of our top tips below for making sure your sports bra fits properly.
TYPE OF SPORTS BRA
There are two main types of sports bras; encapsulation and compression. Tikiboo offers a wide range of compression bras that feature a multitude of different patterns and designs. Look at the descriptions of each bra to see what type of activity it is suitable for and if either design gives you the right amount of support you need.
USE THE SIZE GUIDE
Whether you buy a sports bra from a store or online, you can always use size guides on the labels or on the website. Tikiboo has a size guide that you can use to make sure you are ordering the correct size sports bra. Think about your usual size in department stores while keeping your breast size in mind. The size is slightly different for a razor or cross back bra, so after deciding which one is best for you, check out the size guide for the one you have chosen.
CHECKS TO BE MADE WHEN TESTING THE BRA
You can start by checking the underside of your bra. It should fit tightly around your chest, staying level all around. If you find it affecting your breathing, then it’s too tight! If when you raise your arms it goes up, then it’s too big.
The suspenders should help support your breasts, but should not be the primary source of support. If the straps seem so tight that they dig into your shoulders or are the main part that holds everything together; then the sports bra does not fit properly. A good check for this is to see if you can fit two fingers between the strap and the shoulder.
Don’t be afraid to try out the sports bra as well – you might look a little funny running around the locker room / your living room, but this will make sure you have put the sports bra on. test.
