When you need a bra that won’t put bounce in your step
T-shirt bras are fine for everyday wear, as are sexy ones when you want to impress! But what if you need a hardworking bra for activities like jogging, biking, or rock-climbing? Read on for tips on how to get a sports bra that’s as comfortable as it is functional!
Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3
The first thing you’ll need to test is the straps. Put the bra on, then hold onto one of the cups. Place your fingers under the strap where it sits on your shoulder. The less pull it has, the less jiggle you’ll feel when moving around!
Next, test the cups. Give the bottom of each a tug. The less they stretch, the more your breasts will stay snug against your body during a hearty workout. Both cups should cover the breasts completely, no matter how you move.
Finally, test the bra’s band. Put your arms over your head, and if the band slides up, pick a smaller size. The same goes for adjustable bras: don’t set the clasps on the tightest hook to make it fit. Since even sports bras tend to stretch out over time, you’re better off with the next-smallest size.
