Let’s talk boobs. As women, and active women at that, we all become extremely aware of our ta-ta’s once our heart rate picks up. Be it from the bounce in our run, or the added weight suddenly accompanying our deadlift, our lady-humps always have a way of making their presence known. But they don’t have to! The fact is many of us might not be wearing the right sports bra. Just like with regular bras, every type of breast (of which there are seven, yes, SEVEN types!) requires a different type of sports bra. But fear not, we’re going to break it down and give you all the proper pairings.
To start off with let’s talk about those seven different types of breast and really get to know our breasties. Feel free to stand in front of a mirror and check yourself out, seriously go ahead, you’re a beautiful woman and you should always seize the opportunity to appreciate what the Good Lord gave ya! Now that you’re getting acquainted with your boobies, take a nice long look at their natural shape, and (honestly!) find the shape that best describes what you see from the list below:
Now that we’ve assessed what we’re working with, and identified what shape we’re rockin’, (because for real, when it comes to boobs, there is no wrong shape), it’s time to find their perfect holders. We’re talkin’ bear hug comfort and support. Without further ado, theperfect sports bra for your shape:
Now, let’s be real here for a moment. As great and important as sports bras are, and as fantastic as it is to know our shape andbuy bras accordingly, some of us face a completely different issue: disproportionately large breasts. As someone who has personally gone through a breast reduction, I know how hard, depressing, and just downright exhausting it can be to shop for a properly fitting bra. So, I’ve done it. I have FINALLY managed to find not one, but TWO, websites that sell brasiers for those of us who can’t simply saunter into a Victoria’s Secret and pick something off the rack. From one sweaty active woman to another; embrace your breasties and treat yourself to a properly fitted bra, be it sporty or lacey.
As women, we have enough to deal with when it comes to our bodies. Don’t let bra fitting be another point on that list. Keep active my FRÉnds and don’t let your breasts get you down!
