Are You Wearing the Right Sports Bra?

Over half of women complain about pain in their breasts when exercising (and not just fuller-figured women!), says Freshpair bra fit expert Bobbie Smith. Are you one of them?

Smith explains that, when we run, our breasts create a figure-eight movement that can cause stress on the ligaments. Encapsulated sports bras help protect breasts during exercise by cupping each breast individually and minimizing those damaging motions (as opposed to compression sports bras, which simply press breasts down as one).
