A phrase we often hear when fitting a woman into a sports bra is ‘I know I don’t look like I work out’. What does fit and healthy look like? It’s saddening that many women do not participate in healthy activity because they are uncomfortable with their bodies and feel exposed with a bigger bust. In a recent survey, 55% of Brava customers surveyed said their breast size has prevented them from participating in sport*. This is a confronting response when you consider the adverse effects on your health and fitness. The ...READ MORE >>
It’s best not to. When you run, your breasts can move up to 8 inches if not supported properly! Breast bounce during exercise can stretch supportive ligaments, causing your breasts to sag and possibly leading to back pain and discomfort. A good sports bra is engineered to support you much better than a regular bra, but most importantly it will give you the comfort and confidence to push harder for longer.

For ...READ MORE >>

I’m pregnant, when will I need a maternity bra? Pregnancy often results in breast growth along with many other changes. Sometimes just one cup size bigger and often 2-3 cups, your rib cage will also expand so you’re likely to need not only a bigger cup size, but also the band size. Although all of your growing is likely to be done by week 16, there may be a number of changes along the way, and then when your milk comes in you will become fuller until it settles. The right ...READ MORE >>
