How do I protect my breasts when running?
This is where a supportive sports bra will be your best friend, our running sports bras will help to reduce any impact and keep chest movements to a minimum. This is why it’s crucial as a runner to protect your breasts with a supportive running sports bra.
Is it OK to run in a regular bra?
Running in a regular bra is not recommended. This is because a regular bra will usually have little to no compression, and thin straps that don’t offer the support and security needed to minimise impact. A normal bra might also have underwiring, which can be extremely uncomfortable when running as it can dig in under the arms and rub against your skin.
When it comes to materials, regular bras aren’t designed to be suitable for running, as you’ll find fabrics that aren’t breathable or quick drying that can become heavy when drenched with sweat. The materials that regular bras are made from aren’t usually created for softness with repetitive movement, often having details such as lace or mesh.
So, it is crucial to ensure you are wearing a suitable bra for running to ensure you can stay comfortable, and get the maximum out of your performance.
How should a sports bra fit for running?
Your running sports bra should be slightly tight, but not uncomfortable. Here are a few things to look out for:
Your straps should be tight enough that they are supporting your breasts but shouldn’t be digging in too deeply. Playing around with the adjustable straps can help you find the most comfortable position.
There shouldn’t be a gap between your breasts and the cup, but equally your boobs shouldn’t be spilling out of the sides or the top of the sports bra. Our dual cup sizing is perfect for when you’re not 100% sure on size, are in between sizes or having one of those days where you fluctuate in size.
The band on our running bra should be comfortably snug, meaning a little bit of compression is needed to hold it firm in place, but it shouldn’t be so tight that it digs in or makes it difficult to breathe. Our adjustable bands should help you find the ideal fit.
