For many women, a good sports bra is a non-negotiable part of their workout routine. It minimises breast pain associated with bounce, prevents discomfort and keeps you feeling confident. But did you know the right sports bra can also improve your breathing and unlock a more enjoyable workout experience? 

Here's why choosing a supportive sports bra goes way beyond just comfort. 

Beyond Bounce: The Science of Support

The breasts rely on Cooper’s ligaments for support. During exercise, especially high-impact activities like running, jumping, or HIIT workouts, these ligaments experience significant stress. A well-fitted sports bra minimises breast bounce and reduces the strain on Cooper's ligaments and promotes better posture. 

But the benefits extend beyond comfort. Think of a supportive sports bra as your workout BFF. It allows you to move freely and confidently, without worrying about discomfort or bounce. This translates into improved form and technique, which can ultimately lead to increased performance and a more enjoyable workout. 

The Breath of the Matter: How a Supportive Bra Enhances Your Workout

One of the most surprising benefits of a supportive sports bra is its impact on your breathing. A constricting bra can restrict your diaphragm. When compressed, your diaphragm can't contract fully, limiting your lung capacity and making it harder to breathe during exercise. 

The right sports bra provides enough support without compromising on comfort. This allows your diaphragm to move freely, enabling deeper breaths and increased oxygen intake. The result? Improved stamina, better performance, and a more enjoyable workout. 

Choosing the Right Bra for Your Impact Level

The ideal level of support in a sports bra depends on your activity level and bust size:

Low Impact Activities (Yoga, Pilates, Weight Training)

For activities with minimal bounce, choose a comfortable, low-impact bra that offers gentle support in a smooth breathable fabric.
