Breasts come in all shapes and sizes: Big, small, medium. Real, fake. saggy, perky, somewhere in between. I could go on. If you’ve got them, you know that it can be a pain (literally) when you’re working out. So, what’s a girl to do? There are 3 options.
- Never exercise again (Yeah, no.)
- Just live with the pain
- Learn how to alleviate the pain. *Please note: the pain will never disappear completely. Unless we can get rid of gravity…
As Elle Woods from Legally Blonde once said, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy!” Just because we were blessed in the chest area, doesn’t mean we have to give up exercise! But… if we are in constant state of pain or insecurity, working out can be more of a health hazard than a health benefit. We are left with Option 3.
Supportive Sports Bras:
Without the proper sports bra, our breasts take a beating. The up and down, side to side, jostling, and swaying can result in serious breast tenderness and soreness during and after a workout (not to mention the chaffing). Adequate, supportive sports bras, ESPECIALLY FOR WOMEN WITH LARGER BREASTS, can be like trying to find a four-leaf clover. It’s even more rare to find one that is reasonably cute. But once in a blue moon, when you do find them, it’s your lucky day.
In the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I want to share some supportive sports bras I’ve come across and worn that will give you a splash of style, too.
