A review of the Primeknit LUX Bra that is perfect for runners, writes Deepthi Velkur.
When we think running gear, our minds often go to trainers, clothing, hydration, etc. but what about a good running bra? (for us ladies, at least!).
Picking out a well-fitted sports bra is like picking out the right trainers – it’s often the difference between a comfortable run and one that you’d like to forget in a hurry.
The basic rule – it’s important to provide the right support for your breasts especially when running long distances as it helps to reduce the bounce and keeps them secure by protecting the supportive tissue – the Coopers ligaments, which prevent your breasts from sagging.
Whether you’re a new runner or an experienced one, investing in the right kind of gear will make you’re running a pleasurable experience. The best way to go about selecting the right sports bra is to think about the various activities you do. Ask yourself how much bounce you put your breasts through which helps you decide if you should go for a high impact, medium impact or a low impact sports bra.
