The ultimate support that also has the comfort of course! Did you know that your breast can bounce up to 14cm when unsupported during exercise? So it’s a little scary to know that 44% who exercise regularly don’t wear a sports bra. Why? Remember that Cooper’s ligament.
Let’s face it plus sized bras need different design and technology implemented as what an A cup would. Weight has to be a consideration, and this changes every aspect. Big bust bras not only need to be sturdier but we also want them to look nice and have comfort as these are often an afterthought when it comes to sports bras.
Impact levels play a big part in deciding on the right sports bra. In the past, activities like running, horse riding or trampolining were probably never considered for big bust ladies. The only way around this was to either avoid the activity or wear two bras (to hopefully give you double support?!). Well, these days are now over as there are some great plus-sized sports bras on the market now and Shock Absorber bras are definitely a front-runner.
Shock Absorber is the UK's leading sports bra brand and has been the industry expert since 1995. They design with specific sports and impact levels in mind and produce the ultimate in support right up to an HH cup. Their designs are lightweight, breathable, wireless and dare I say it comfortable. They have developed the Ultimate Run bra, so it is now possible to be an H cup and go for a run without damaging your precious Cooper's ligament. The Active Multi Sports Support and Active D+ Classic Support are also firm favourites that give extreme support.
Having a great functioning sports bra is a lingerie essential. Elomi and Freya both go up to a K cup and do an awesome job in support, design and comfort. Cake Lingerie also has a nursing sports bra for all the breastfeeding Mum’s.
Remember your impact levels when choosing the right bra for you. It can be easier just to go for the one with the most that allow you to do any activity you choose. Whether you are in Shock Absorber bras or one of the plus sized sports bras that we stock in our bra shop in Brisbane, enjoy your sport, reduce your bounce and be in the ultimate support for your sport.
