Wear the Correct Size
We know that we talk about this all the time, in fact we have a whole section dedicated to the art of getting the perfect fit, but even with regards to the longevity of your favourite bra, wearing the correct size is incredibly important!
Since a bra’s back band is responsible for 80% of the overall support that it gives you, wearing one that is too tight will result in a whole lot of extra stretching to the elastic. If you are wearing a back band that is too loose, however, stress will instead be placed on the shoulder straps and (you guessed it!) they will become overstretched too.
For bras that are feeling full of life, the correct back band is the only way to go!
In addition to this, make sure that you are wearing a dedicated sports bra rather than a normal bra for physical activity.
Everyday bras are tough but they’re not built for the excessive movement that accompanies your chosen workout. Investing in a sports bra saves the elastic in your lingerie collection and, more importantly, it protects your boobs!
