Jogging is a high impact sport that is best served by the athletic bra. The running or jogging bra designs are for motion control and comfort. First, we will determine if you need one. Then I will give you five checks to look for best fit.
Do you already own a comfortable sports wear brassiere?
If you answered yes, then that is what you can use to start jogging. At this point, you do not yet have a comparison to judge the athletic support you will need for jogging. You will have to get out there and go for a jog to determine if your sports bra is suitable.
If all you own are support bras that lift or have under wires, you will be more comfortable with a jogging bra.
The larger your cup size the more benefit you will get from a proper fitting jogging bra. I do wear a running bra now when I jog. However, when I started running at 16 years old, I did not wear a bra on most of my runs.
A compression undershirt held things enough and protected from friction. I was a 34 b-cup size at the time. There was no pull and bounce of my breasts as I ran.
The last running bra that I purchased was a C cup bra. I went through all the above checks and needed to go up one-cup size to ensure that my breathing was not restricted as I jog. Here is a surprise…
You will know you have the best athletic bra if you find yourself wanting to wear it even when you are not jogging. Well done!
