FINDING THE RIGHT SPORTS BRA IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK

Not all sports bras are created equal. A sports bra is essential equipment. Find the one that is right for you.

A GOOD SPORTS BRA HELPS ELIMINATE BREAST MOVEMENT, AND MUST HAVE:

  • The ability to wick moisture, particularly between the breasts 
  • Breatheability for a cooling flow of air 
  • Ability to dry quickly 
  • Correct proportions and contours to minimize chafing 
  • Straps that do not dig into the shoulders 
  • A band that does not shift or bind 
  • Soft thread to minimize skin irritation 
  • At least 25% Lycra to compress the breasts sufficiently

THERE ARE THREE MAIN TYPES OF SPORTS BRAS:

Compression (Least support)

  • Most common
  • Designed to press breasts flat, as a single unit, to minimize movement
  • Best for A and B cup women

Compression/Encapsulation

  • Designed to encapsulate each breast and press them to the chest
  • Best for C, D and some DD women

Encapsulation (Most Support)

  • Looks more like regular bra
  • May have an under wire
  • Offers the most support by harnessing each breast individually

A SPORTS BRA’S FIT IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF ITS SUPPORT:

  • The band of the bra should offer the most support
  • The cups of the bra keep the breast in place and provide additional support
  • The straps are designed to do the least amount of work
  • A good sports bra will fit more snug than a regular bra
  • Test for control with jogging in place or jumping jacks
  • The band should not ride up with activity

WE PROMISE TO DO OUR BEST TO FIND THE PROPER FIT FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS. CURRENTLY, FLEET FEET COLUMBUS CARRIES SPORT BRAS FROM ENELL, NEW BALANCE & MOVING COMFORT.
