Times have certainly changed and sports bras have come along for the ride. Gone are the days of hideous sports bras that hold you down and hide your figure. In today’s world, sports bras are just as stylish as they are functional and the Vivendi Apparel High Impact Sports Bra is of no exception.
That being said, despite the now stunning options out there, people still question the difference between a sports bra and a regular bra, while others question the need for one entirely.
One of the biggest myths out there is that because you don’t necessarily take part in particularly ‘active’ sports or physical exercise, you don’t need a sports bra. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Today we’re looking at how sports bras help you beyond regular bras as well as when they’re best worn. Let’s get to it…
The Benefits Of Sports Bras
Sports bras aren’t just a nice to have, they’re essential and here’s why.
Whether you’re an avid gym user or you simply like going for a brisk walk every so often, you will at some time start to feel some discomfort when wearing a regular bra. Even when carrying out low impact exercises such as stretching or cycling, you may experience breast discomfort without the proper support. You may also experience tension in the shoulders as well as uncomfortable sweaty patches under your breasts that could lead to serious chaffing in regular bras. It just makes sense to avoid it altogether and use a fit for purpose sports bra.
Prevent Premature Sagging
Researchers have spent many hours researching the breast area and sagging. It’s concluded, quite rightly, that movement combined with inadequate support can and does lead to premature sagging of the breast. In fact, a study was carried out by the University of Portsmouth that showed breasts move far more than a regular everyday bra is designed to cope with. Wearing sports bras with extra support will therefore reduce the movement and overtime, reduce the amount that your breasts will sag.
Avoid Breast Pain
Whenever you move, the ligaments in your breast move too. Whether that’s up, down or side to side. Without the correct support, this movement can be exaggerated and subsequently cause pangs of pain with sharp, jerky movement of the breast. With the help of a sports bra however, your breast movement will be greatly reduced, in turn, eliminating the breast pain during low impact and even high impact exercises.
Enjoy Comfort Following Surgery
For those who go through breast surgery, a well supporting sports bra is exactly what’s needed. Not only will this reduce movement following surgery but it will help to keep implants in place while the healing process takes place. Surgeons recommend decent sports bras for up to 6-8 weeks following breast augmentation or reconstructive surgery.
Look As Good As You Feel
Sports have changed a lot since they were first invented and now, you can look as good as you feel. Check out the amazing mesh material as well as the stunning Vivendi wings on our very own high impact sports bras? They’re as fashionable as they are functional.
Focus On Your Sport
Without the correct support, it can become difficult to focus on the task in hand. With a well supporting bra, instead of trying your best to bear through the breast pain and discomfort, you can instead focus solely on your sport, your gym session or even the beautiful scenery on your evening walk.
