SPORTS BRAS THAT MAKE YOU GET OUT OF BED

Every day our new feeds slap our faces with fitness regimes, challenges, and videos. It seems like the world has suddenly shifted to a place of better health and awareness.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ENCAPSULATION AND PADDED SPORTS BRA

Well, it can quite onerous to define every single bra type or style and to clearly point out the differences, however, it is so important to do so. It helps you make informed choices and ultimately a happy shopper.

As puzzling as it may be, to know that a Sports Bra has different types is fascinating. They are compression, encapsulation, Racer-Back, criss-cross, padded, non-padded and ones with removable padding. The function of the padding in a sports bra is entirely different from that of the encapsulation.

An encapsulation bra will have two separate cups to hold and support each breast, the fabric itself is made to hold each breast individually. While a compression bra will only hold back your breasts, an encapsulation, as the name encloses and targets each breast from movement thereby protecting the tissues.

Whereas a padded sports bra has an extra layer of foam in each cup. The padding is to conceal the teats because sports bras are usually worn in public. Even a compression sports bra can be padded. The padding is just the same as it is for any other bra such as T-Shirt Bra or Push-Up Bra.

WHICH SPORTS BRA SHOULD YOU BUY?

The type of sportswear you choose entirely depends on the kind of activity you do. Even though larger cup sizes are more subject to sagging and bust tissue damage, smaller cups can also sag. The damage is just more prominent in larger sizes. The different types provide a different degree of support. For maximum support, choose a racer-back or a pull-over sports bra. There are also bras with a combination of compression and encapsulation. These are suitable for small and large breasts alike.

For very low impact exercises like walking and elliptical, there is little stress on the upper body so you could choose a cotton mixed sports bra but wear tights made of the same material. In terms of comfort, encapsulation sports bras are better because the compression bras can cause chafing. 

For medium to high impact exercises, an encapsulation or a padded sports bra will be ideal.   If your breasts are wide set apart, then a compression sports bra will work just fine and won’t form a uni-boob. But if they are not, choose a combination of both or a padded or a removable padded sports bra. Get a pair of Sports Bras online from Shyaway on offer and get fit in style.
