Reach New Goals with the Right Apparel
Personal comfort and fit are essential when selecting your sports bra. Working out should Here are a couple of things to consider while making your purchase:
- Think about the level of support and coverage you desire when making your selection. Choose a high-impact or compression sports bra for a snug, no-bounce fit. These tight-fitting bras are ideal for activities like running or a cardio class at the gym. Medium-impact support bras are ideal for yoga or spinning classes, while low-impact bras are great for walking.
- Consider the construction of your sports bra. Designs are available with or without padding and with multiple layers for added coverage and modesty. Adjustable straps and self-adjustable cups allow you customize your level of support, as well as your fit.
- Moisture-wicking technology in your sports bra will draw perspiration away from your skin for a fresh feeling during strenuous workouts. Features such as mesh paneling can give you ventilation for a light, breathable feel. Think about the type of closure that you would like in your sports bra. Traditional hook closures allow for easy on-off, while hook-less styles can be pulled over your head.
- Underwire often offers additional support for women with fuller breasts. Compression bras pull the breasts firmly in and are best suited for women with smaller busts. Women who wear a sports bra on an average of three to four times a week will typically need to replace the bra within six to twelve months, due to the loss in the garment's elasticity. Choose a supportive sports bra and keep your focus on the game.
Of course, sizing is the biggest part of getting a great fit. Know your bra size before making your purchase. Find information on measuring yourself for an accurate bra size on the DICK'S Sporting Goods Sizing Charts by Brand page.
