Useful tips for choosing sports bras
If you haven't yet chosen the model of sports bra that you will use when practicing sports , here are some tips that could be very useful:
Choose models made of elastic fabrics , such as elastane, which provide greater support and help reduce the impact of physical activity on the chest;
Choose crossed straps , as they allow greater freedom of movement, as they do not cover the shoulder blades and leave your arms more comfortable;
If you don't have a very large chest, opt for seamless sports bras, as they are less prone to irritation and abrasions. However, it is essential to ensure that the fabric is sweatproof , allowing the bra to stay dry;
If you have a larger chest, you should opt for clothing with cups adjusted to each breast . Choose sports bras with zippers at the front, which are easier to take off when your body is sweaty;
Choose breathable and quick-drying materials . Fabrics such as polyamide are ideal, as they function as a “second skin” due to their breathable characteristics. Unlike cotton, they prevent moisture.
