When it comes to undergarments, ladies often have an exceptionally tough time deciding on the kind of bra they want. The obvious criteria is convenience, first and foremost, followed by the visual appeal. Admit it or not, ladies don’t just dress for themselves as they would like you to believe.

However, the major problem women face is choosing the bra which will be suitable for athletic purposes. We are talking about running, cardio, weight lifting, yoga, aerobics, dance classes and the sort.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing one:

Buy it in person

Don’t hand out instructions to someone else. Be there in person so you can try it out to make sure it’s comfortable enough.

The funny thing is, that the same size that worked for you last time may not work this time. It may due to a change in brand or the most minuscule change in your bust size perhaps due to weight gain, pregnancy etc. Often the material will wrinkle around the edges which will further restrict the size.

Try a variety of sizes and find one the doesn’t constrict your breathing but at the same time doesn’t hang too loose.

When trying it on, make sure you’re not spilling out of it; that defeats the purpose of the best sports bra. On the other hand, if the fabric is wrinkling, then the cup size is too big for you and you need to go smaller.

Size

If you’re a beginner at this, have never tried wearing one in the past and don’t feel like trying on a hundred different bras at random succession before you find the right fit, we don’t blame you.

However, the simpler method is to get a measurement. You first need to measure around your ribcage just under your breasts which will be used to determine your bra band size. Follow up by measuring your bust size (encircle the tape around your back and across the fullest part of your breasts). Subtract your ribcage measurement from your bust measurement to find your cup size.
