Boobs are wonderful things. But during exercise they can have a mind of their own! According to the NHS, breasts have a 4cm range of movement during a walk and a 15cm range when running, the multi-directional swaying can cause pain, embarrassment and eventually, sagging.
While high-impact sports like running clearly have the biggest bounce-factor, your breasts will move more than you do no matter what exercise you’re doing. Pounding out a 10k on the treadmill? The girls will have bounced the equivalent of a marathon.
It’s enough to put you off going to the gym altogether - and it does. A survey by Portsmouth University’s Research Group in Breast Health found breasts were the fourth biggest barrier to exercise for women after motivation, time and poor health.
Luckily, a high impact sports bra from Pour Moi can help. From underwired to non-wire, lightly padded to adjustable, our shock absorber bras can minimise the bounce and support the sensitive breast tissue to leave you feeling comfortable (and even sweat-free).
