What is a Sports Bra?

A sports bra is a technical piece of equipment designed specifically to protect your breasts during all activities. All activities require movement and supporting your breasts during such activities is important.

Regardless of your breast size damage can be done to your breast ligaments, called Cooper’s Ligaments, when your breasts are not properly supported.  These ligaments cannot repair themselves and any damage may eventually lead to breast sagging.

A properly fitting sports bra can greatly reduce breast movement. Preventing breast pain, discomfort and sagging.

For further information please visit our Fitting Room.

Why can’t I just wear my everyday bra?

Your everyday bra might be pretty or practical, but it is not built for impact during sports or activities.
Sports bras have technical features specifically designed for activity. These include wider straps, moisture wicking materials, fuller cup coverage and unique designs to reduce bounce.
No matter your breast size damage can be done to breast ligaments, called Cooper’s Ligaments, when your breasts are not properly supported. Once damaged these ligaments cannot repair themselves and may eventually lead to breast sagging.
A properly fitting sports bra can prevent breast pain, discomfort and sagging…your lacy everyday bra does not. Sports bras really do make a massive difference!
For further information please check out our Fitting Room / Why wear a Sports Bra.

Do I need a different Sports Bra for different activities?

If you participate in many different activities. It is smart to equip yourself with several different styles of Sports Bras. High impact activities require Sports Bras with a high level of support. You can choose to wear a high impact Sports Bra for all your activities. However many woman prefer a less constrictive style for lower impact activities.

It is advisable to steer away from Low to Medium impact Sports Bras for activities that result in a high degree of breast bounce.  Low to Medium impact styles will not give you enough support during activities like running and netball.

If your chosen activity is a lower impact, such as weights or hiking. Then a low or medium impact sports bra should be sufficient.

You may also find that the larger the cup size, the higher level of support your breasts require, regardless of the activity.  However this is often a personal choice based on what feels comfortable.  If you would like further information about the different types of Sports Bras please visit our Fitting Room / Sports Bra Types

How often should I replace my Sports Bra?

Sports Bras are given a much tougher workout than your everyday bra. Hence they have a much more technical job to perform. A Sports Bra should never have a birthday. It is recommended they be replaced every 6-8 months depending on how often you wear them.  How long your Sports Bra stays comfortable and supportive depends on how many times it has been worn and washed.  If you wear the same Sports Bra for every workout. You may need to replace it sooner than the 6 month mark.  It is a good idea to rotate three to four Sports Bras to extend their lifespan.

If your body or breast shape has changed then it is advisable to check the fitting of your Sports Bras and replace them.  For further information about fitting please visit our Fitting Tips.

I find that my bra size fluctuates during the month, what size should I purchase?

It is very common for women’s breasts to change in size during the month in line with her hormones and menstrual cycle.  Sports Bras Direct recommends you buy a larger cup size for that particular time of the month.
You may also need some different sized Sports Bras if your weight often fluctuates with either weight gain or loss.  It is important to wear the correct size so that your breasts are adequately supported and the bra is comfortable.
If you have one breast that is bigger than the other you will need to choose a size that fits the larger breast.  Some women who suffer from breast tenderness also find that wirefree Sports Bras are more comfortable.
So if your bra size fluctuates and for more information about fitting please visit our Fitting Room.
