Is it necessary to wear sports bra during activities? The answer is definitely “Yes!”
1. Why is it needed to wear sports bra?
Some people may say, why do I need to wear a professional sports bra? The common bra I usually wear is also very comfortable! Or it is even better to practice yoga at home and wear a loose T-shirt, or even more comfortable without a bra. That is totally incorrect.
Our breasts don’t have any muscles, which are mainly composed of glandular tissue and fat, while the suspensory ligament of the breast plays a fixing role. The movement of breast will stretch the suspensory ligament of breast. Like rubber band over stretching, the suspensory ligament of breast, which plays a supporting and fixing role, can be irreversibly repaired once it is damaged due to movement.
It is researched that the breast will shake for 135 meters when person runs for one mile (1609 meters). This long time large-scale swing will make the breasts droop, and may also cause problems such as tearing of pectoralis major muscles. Once protected by professional sports bra, the shaking of breasts during activities will be reduced by more than 70%. Moreover, sports bra with good support and strong air permeability will make the exercise process more comfortable.
