Protecting the Breast During Workouts
by Deirdra Smith
My favorite bra for the competitive athlete or "high-impact" exerciser, is the "SWEAT IT OUT®" sports bra by Lontex Corporation. This bra offers a "crisscross" design ensuring that the breasts are separated and that bouncing is minimal. Most importantly, the bra is made with a material called "CoolMax® " which will not saturate. This is imperative during intense workouts to ensure that the bra dries quickly minimizing the chance for chafing or other skin irritations. Although this is a "state-of-the-art" bra, it is very affordable costing from $30-$40 depending upon size.
Whatever bra you choose, be sure that it secures the breast during movement, houses each breast in a separate cup, and dries fast. Being callous about breast care today will result in unattractive breasts tomorrow.
