Whether you are a fitness geek or a newbie to fitness games, you probably know the rule of thumb which is of course wearing the right sports gear for a workout. For most women, the standard exercise outfit includes a high-quality sports bra that is specifically designed to support the back muscles and breast tissues during physical activities. 

During a workout, your body most likely performs repetitive moves at a high momentum, to align with the pace your breasts also match the movements, making it a big deal. Using a proper sports bra can cut down on these unwanted movements, reduce friction and offer your breasts support against gravity.  


Why a Sports Bra Is Essential?

Many women who are not actively into fitness regimes choose sports bras for premium comfort. However, for active women, it plays a much more pivotal role than just offering comfort. Comfort is secondary here, because what mainly a sports bra does is protect the integrity of your delicate breast tissues during intense workouts. 

Since the breasts have no bones and muscles, the ligaments alone are responsible for shaping them and they are prone to damage. When left unsupported during exercise, the vulnerable breast tissues and ligaments will tend to be damaged and the shape may easily break down. The same case happens when you wear the wrong bra for physical activities. The best sports bra comes with advanced features and specific designs to offer you the adequate support and stability, and reduce breast movements during your sweat session. 


Choosing the Best Sports Bra for Your Workout

Purchasing sports bras for running or workouts is quite similar to buying your regular bras. However, there are a few additional factors to keep in mind while selecting a sports bra, so that it perfectly keeps up with your fitness routine. Here are the factors you need to consider.


  • Adjustable Straps

If you want the most personalised fit possible, going for a sports bra with adjustable straps will be the best choice for you.

Hunnit’s Epic Pop V Neck Sports Bra is one of the best workout bras with adjustable straps that have been stealing ladies' hearts by offering the most customised fit and premium comfort. 


  • Padding  

Let me burst a myth for you, whether a sports bra is padded or not, has nothing to do with comfort. Padding serves aesthetic reasons by offering your breasts a firm appearance and eliminating the chance of nipple protrusion.

Only if you want to avail either of these benefits, you may opt for a sports bra with padding. Check out Hunnit’s latest stylish sports bra range to pick your favourite workout buddy. 


  • Fabric with Moisture Wicking Feature

Moisture-wicking fabric is a plus point for sports bras or any other workout gear you invest in. Whether it is a sports bra for daily use or solely for gym sessions, the moisture-wicking and quick-dry fabrics help you stay dry and cool during a sweaty summer.

  • Support

Speaking of support, you need to be particularly mindful regarding the type of support you need from your sports bra. You may generally find sports bras in high, medium and low-support varieties ideal for high-impact, medium and low-impact or gentle workouts respectively. Now, according to your fitness routine, you must decide if you need a sports bra high support or whether medium or lower will be perfect. For instance, if you are into medium-impact exercises, an FLO sports bra will go fine.
