Why wear a sports bra?
When working out, your bust is subject to more stress and impacts than during your daily activities. Your breasts can weigh three to five times more than their usual weight, depending on the level of intensity of your workout and the impacts. However, many women use a regular bra which doesn't provide proper support when they work out. A sports bra limits movement and impacts on the breasts.
Whatever your bust size, movements and impacts stretch the skin and ligaments. Without proper support, you might feel pain and your breasts might undergo premature sagging. Too much support can also be detrimental over time: it must be perfectly suited to your bust size and the intensity of the impacts. The aim is to protect your bust without modifying the natural movement of the breast.
Choosing the right support for your sport
You will find the model with the right support for your type of workout: low- (yoga, stretching, strength training, etc.), medium- (fitness, dance, cardio), or high-impact (step, treadmill, trampoline, etc.). We recommend you match the level of bust support to your sport/fitness activity. For example, don't wear a sports bra designed for high-impact sports if it isn't needed (you want to protect your bust while allowing the natural movement of the breasts as much as possible).

Choosing the right size
The right size ensures good support and a comfortable fit.To choose your bra size, take your bust measurement:* Don't wear a bra while taking your measurement. * Stand in front of a mirror. * Hold your tape measure horizontally at the top of your back towards the bottom of your shoulder blades. * Bring the tape measure around your breasts. Without tightening the tape measure, check the measurement.Refer to our size guide to find your corresponding sports bra size.
How Domyos sports underwear is designed
