How to Choose a Sports Bra?

Because it can be given a hard time when exercising, the bust needs to be protected with an appropriate sports bra. So how do you choose the right one?

Choosing a sports bra is done based on the intensity and impact level of your exercise routine. Here are 3 criteria for making the right choice: support for the bust, perspiration wicking and comfort.

1. Bust Support

Depending on the intensity of your sport, your bust suffers greater or lesser impacts which it must be protected from with a suitable bra.

For low-impact fitness activities like yoga, Pilates or soft gym, a light-support bra helps keep your bust in place without compressing it unnecessarily.

For moderate-impact fitness work, such as choreographed classes or cross-training, opt for a medium-support bra that combines optimal support and good perspiration wicking for this type of activity.

Finally, for high-impact exercise, choose a bra with greater support that reduces the movement of the bust during very intensive activities such as step, jump or treadmill.

2. Perspiration Wicking

For low-intensity exercise, it’s better to go for soft, elastic fabrics which offer comfort and freedom of movement.

For medium to high-intensity exercises, choose a hi-tech fabric bra with ventilated racer back to help wick away perspiration. 

3. Comfort

To exercise in the best conditions, having a comfortable bra is essential. Go for soft and supple materials which make you feel comfortable, even models with a minimum of seams to avoid the feeling of irritation if your workout is very intense.

For a comfortable bra, it’s especially important to choose the right size. To find your right size of sports bra, measure your chest with a tape measure.

The adjustments are important too. For the most intense workouts, more adjustments will allow better adaptability to your body shape.

Feel free to try on a bra before buying it to make sure it’s comfortable!
