|To help you on your way here are some points to help you use the correct sports bra.|
- Measure your body under the bust to give the size of the bra - you measure here because the flesh of the rib cage is firm and a snugly fitted underband is the key to making you feel supported.
- Once you have your under-bust measurement, you will be able to assess your cup size.
- Before choosing a sports bra, take into account the requirements of your particular sporting activity.
- This coupled with your cup size, will determine the level of support you need.
Common problems answered
- If your bra pulls up at the back, it is too big in the underband around the body.
- The bra's cup is too big if there is extra space under the cup and extra fabric around the nipple.
- Often when the bra is too small you get extra cup flesh poking out towards the armpit and above the cup.
- If your bra is making it's mark and cutting in around your shoulders or body then it is too small.
