A sports bra is a brassiere that is designed to support a woman’s breasts during physical activity. It is important to wear a sports bra during activities such as running, playing tennis, or working out at the gym to prevent pain and sagging.
Putting on a sports bra correctly can be tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it will become second nature. Follow these steps to put on a sports bra correctly:
1. Stand in front of a mirror and make sure that you are wearing the correct size. The band of the bra should be snug but comfortable, and the cups should fully support your breasts. If you need to, adjust the straps so that they are not too loose or too tight.
2. Hold the bra in front of you so that the straps are facing away from you. Put your arms through the straps and position the bra so that it covers your breasts completely.
3. Reach around behind you and fasten the hooks together. Make sure that the hooks are secure but not too tight.
4. Adjust the cups of the bra so that they fit snugly against your breasts without causing any discomfort. You should also make sure that there is no gaps between your breast and the cup of the bra.
5. Once you have adjusted the cups and straps, take a look in the mirror to make sure that everything looks correct. You should feel comfortable and supported without feeling too constricted.
Step One: Figure Out Your Size
Before you even start trying on sports bras, it’s important to know your size. Just like regular bras, sports bras come in a variety of sizes, and the right size will make all the difference in terms of comfort and support. To find your sports bra size, you’ll need to take two measurements:
1. Measure around the fullest part of your bust.
2. Measure around your rib cage, just under your bust.
Once you have both measurements, consult a size chart to determine your sports bra size.
Step Two: Put It On
Now that you’ve assembled all the materials you need, it’s time to put your sports bra on. Start by putting your arms through the bra straps, then lean forward and pull the bra down so that your breasts fall into the cups. If the bra has a front closure, fasten it now. Once your breasts are securely in the cups, stand up and adjust the band so that it fits snugly around your rib cage.
Over the Head
If the sports bra has straps that go over the shoulder, start with those. Raise your arms up and slip the band over your head. The band should be snug but not too tight — you should be able to slide two fingers underneath it comfortably.
Once the band is in place, pull the straps down over your shoulders. Again, these should be snug but not too tight — you should be able to slide one finger underneath them comfortably. If the straps are adjustable, take this opportunity to adjust them to your desired fit.
If your sports bra has no hooks or clasps, it’s probably a pull-on style. Here’s how to put one on:
– Reach behind you and stretch the band out with both hands.
– Put your arms through the armholes and pull the bra over your head.
– Once the bra is in place, adjust the straps so they’re not too tight or too loose.
– If the band feels too loose, try tightening the straps. If that doesn’t help, try going down a size.
Hook and Eye
The most common fastener used on sports bras is the hook and eye. Most importantly, make sure that the hooks are facing downwards towards your belly button when you put your bra on, as this will make it much easier to do up. If the hooks are facing up, you will have to contort your body quite a bit to do them up!
Step Three: Do a Test Run
Now that you’ve put your sports bra on, it’s time for a test run. Jog in place, jump up and down, or do any other type of movement you’ll be doing during your workout to see if the sports bra stays in place and provides the support you need.
Now that you know how to put on a sports bra, you can be sure that you’ll be comfortable and supported during your next workout. Remember to choose a sports bra that fits well and provides the level of support that you need. With a little bit of practice, putting on your sports bra will become second nature.
