'are failing to support breasts during sport'


Women's breasts are not getting the support they need, a study showed today.
Dr Joanna Scurr's research revealed that between 45 per cent and 60 per cent of women experience breast pain when exercising, regardless of their breast size.
An A-cup woman could be prevented from doing sport just as much as a woman with a double F cup, the survey showed.
Breasts also bounce more during exercise - up to 8in (21cm) rather than the maximum 6in (16cm) bounce measured in past studies.
Bras are designed to stop breasts bouncing but Dr Scurr's research showed that breasts also move from side to side and in and out, and ordinary bras are not designed to cope.
The University of Portsmouth scientist also found that breasts move as much during slow jogging as they do at maximum sprint speed.
She said: "There really are women who want to do exercise but who don't have the bras to cope.
"I know of a 16-year-old who was selected to play basketball for the county but she was told to give it up because she couldn't find a bra that made playing possible.
"Breast size and pain caused by exercise can be a real barrier to women doing exercise."
Dr Scurr is working with bra manufacturers in Britain and globally which are vying to design a bra that can lessen movement in all three dimensions and reduce the pain factor.
Seventy women were recruited for the two-year study through the university's student and staff population, gyms and doctors' surgeries.
The University said it is the widest range of breast sizes ever studied and includes women with cup sizes from A up to a double J.

I would like to volunteer to assist in the completion of this study. I can personally check each breast for tenderness after each exercise to determine the effectiveness of the support.

A while ago I said no one had asked me eg: we asked one hundred people,
Now this is one survey that I would loved to have helped with Yogi


See I know a little already
Sports Bra: Most sports bras are made from stretch microfiber that wicks moisture away from your skin and dries quickly to keep you comfortable throughout your workout. The choice of front or rear close, underwire or soft cup, racerback or traditional is entirely up to you and your sport of choice.

o ,wow i am a breast man myself ,and i am all in it for the burn the bra idea ,but also been in the manufacturing side of these garments i know this is a specialised items to make and its not anyone who can make a perfect bra , with so many steps in the prosses it works out to be quiet costly to manufacture thats why so many companies run to the far east and get them to make these items in their sweat shops at a fraction of the price , and put our local companies and people out of work , ps never seen a j cup would luv to
