Wearing a Sports Bra everyday

With the shop having been up and running for just about two months now, it’s been interesting to see how many women prefer to wear a Sports Bra as an everyday bra.

I certainly don’t have any issues with this, so long as during the selection and fitting process we take in to account the fact that it will be an all-day-every-day garment.

With the exception of postsurgical intervention it is generally not advised for women to be in a highly compressive bra all day, every day. This can be somewhat dangerous with underwire and may leave delicate breast tissue damaged.

However there are a number of Sports Bras on the market that could definitely be considered appropriate for everyday use. Or as I use them, for my ‘heavy hauling’ days!

These include:

1. Berlei Electrify, cup sizes A – E. Available in white, black and an array of seasonal colours. RRP $50.

Berlei Electrify Underwire white

 

2. Moving Comfort Luna, cup sizes B – DD. Available in white, black and latte. RRP $80.

Moving Comfort Luna moulded Sports bra

3. Berlei Full Support Sports Bra, DD – H. Available in black and white, RRP $70.

Berlei Curves Full Support black Underwire traditional back bra

4. Freya Active Underwire Sports Bra, cup sizes DD – J. Available  in black, red, white and nude. RRP $75.

Oprah’s favourite Sports Bra, the Enell Sport bra

Well if it got Oprah’s big tick of approval then you’d have to assume it’s a goodie! The Enell Sport Bra brings a fairly unique option to our bra wall. While most Sports Bras these days are designed to separate the breasts, holding each one firmly in its place on its side of the body, the Enell differs. It is a compression style Sports Bra meaning that the breasts are compressed against the chest wall, flattened slightly if you like. The bra should be fitted more firmly in order to best restrict breast displacement during activity. This results in an immediate feeling of security and in most cases extreme comfort.

Our larger busted women have responded fabulously to the ‘different factor’ that this presents, many opting for this as an alternative bra option for high impact gym sessions.

To add to the ‘different factor’, this Sports Bra goes on like a vest, and does up like a corset with hook and eyes from the front. The wide shoulder straps mean that pressure is dispersed evenly over the shoulders, and indentation from bra straps is avoided. We also like the high neckline that adds to the support factor by limiting vertical breast displacement during activity. This also helps avoid wardrobe malfunctions during any comprising yoga poses!

We stock this option in both the black and white, and find it suitable for women with cup sizes greater than DD. Most commonly we are fitting F, G, GG, H, HH and J cups in to this bra. It does have a unique sizing system, so it’s definitely best to try before you buy with this model.
