Wearing the right sports bra will be the difference between a good workout and great workout. It’s all about finding the perfect fit.
So how do you find your perfect fit? First, it has to do with a lot more than just your cup size. The three key factors to consider are FIT, FUNCTION and of course FASHION.
A sports bra should be slightly tighter then a normal bra to provide maximum support. For larger busted ladies it’s important to choose a bra with good cleavage cover.
What kind of activities you do will determine whether you need a high impact or a low impact sports bra. Low impact activities include; walking, yoga, weight training and pilates. High impact sports bra’s are designed to “hold you in” and provides support across your back, bust and neck. If you are a larger busted lady always opt for high impact no matter the activity.
The best part, who doesn’t want to feel fab while they are working out? Shortlist an option of sports bra’s depending on fit and function first and then look for a bra that catches your eye and makes you feel amazing.
Staying healthy and fit plays a huge part in my life. As most may already know I’ve been a model for 7 years and if you follow me on Instagram or snapchat you’ll also know that I adore food! I gave up on the idea of depriving myself of life’s delicious treats years again and opted to follow a balanced lifestyle of exercising regularly so that I can eat regularly.
I’ve tried countless sporting and training activities over the years and have finally found the perfect combo for my body. Yoga + boxing + lots of walking and hiking. I train about 4-5 times a week (two high impact sessions and 3-4 low impact sessions per week) so having the perfect workout gear is essential to me, particularly the right sports bra. My two favourite’s are adidas’ Supernova graphic bra and the Supernova X bra.
THE ADIDAS SUPERNOVA GRAPHIC BRA:
With ventilated climacool® that keeps you cool and dry while training this bra is a favourite of mine during heated yoga classes. With an elastic bottom band and cross-strap back for high support no matter your movement. The best part? It’s made in a more sustainable way by using recycled polyester and decreasing production emissions.
THE ADIDAS SUPERNOVA X BRA:
With it’s scoop neck and a cross-strap back it makes the perfect high impact sport’s bra. I love running and boxing in this bra as it provides the upmost comfort whilst training as it’s made with a soft, stretchy jersey like material.
