We get it. The last thing you need when you’re out jogging is a chafing bra strap.Wearing the wrong size or type of bra for jogging can lead to neck and back pain, breast pain and irreparable damage to the ligaments inside the breast. Despite all this, a lot of women wear the wrong bra, both when it comes to their regular lingerie, and their sporting attire.
Good athletic clothing can also do a number of things apart from providing health benefits – from boosting your confidence and improving your performance to increasing freedom of movement. Plus, don’t tell us you weren’t slightly envious of that girl in the cute, matching sports bra and training pants in your gym!
We’re here to tell you exactly what you need in your workout wardrobe:
Wearing your everyday bra while working out is a no-no! Sports bras are designed keeping the intensity of the activity in mind. They are constructed to reduce bounce, offer high support and a lot of sports bras come with sweat-wicking technology. Regular non-sports bras aren’t made for high-intensity physical activity like running or gymming – they can make your breasts feel like a burden while working out.
Check this sports bra – it is created to give you the support you need for your early morning runs.
Training Pants With Compression Technology
We love these pants! The fabric works by applying additional compression to your muscles, so you feel every movement. This means you can work your muscles harder. The special breathable fabric allows you to sweat and dry up faster so you aren’t damp for too long. So all you have to do is work it, girl!
This one is especially important for women who prefer to run outdoors. We don’t want you exposing your delicate skin to harmful UV rays and this jacket will protect you from exactly that.
The fabric is designed to wick away sweat, beat odour and fight harmful bacteria. That means that you can use the jacket for weeks without worrying about sweat stains or bad odour. What’s more, you can head from the gym to the cafe in style by donning this jacket!
If you are more of a shorts and t-shirt kind of girl, no sweat. Literally! Because it’s made of a lightweight fabric that’s super soft, you’re guaranteed a comfortable run. These shorts are also breathable and dry quickly, so you’ll never have to worry about a stinky pair of running shorts ever again!
Now you know what to wear before you hit the road next time!
