Is It Time To Replace My Sports Bra?
Posted on October 04 2019
Finding the perfect sports bra is a huge ordeal, so naturally, parting with it is going to be difficult. After much trial and error,you find the right one that doesn’t dig into your sides, rub against your skin, and provide the optimal amount of support. However, at some point, you will have to replace it.
Here are some warning signs that you need to get a new sports bra:
It doesn’t provide support
According to an online women’s magazine, approximately 80% of women are wearing the wrong size of the sports bra. So, you either got the wrong size to begin with, or itlost its shape with regular wear.
Sports bras are meant to keep your breasts in place during activities and if they aren’t doing their job, the breast tissue can get damaged. Make sure your sports bra fits snug and provides the support you need. The level of support needed differs based on cup size. The larger the cup size, the more support is needed. If your sports bra no longer gives that support, it’s time to chuck it out.
You’ve had it a while
Even if you feel like your sports bra is in perfect condition 3 years after you’ve bought and used it, it has run the course of its life. Sports bras are meant to last 6 months to a year depending on how frequently you use it and wash it.
Thenumber of times you wear this determines how long your sports bra will last. If you’re only using it once or twice a week, it will surely last longer than for someone who usesit every day.
You’ve been using it in the dryer
While the dryer makes your life so much easier when it comes to doing laundry, it’s the absolute worst for sports bras. Even the best quality sports bra will get ruined in the dryer. Hot air used in the dryer is known to damage lycra. Sports bras and any other activewear pieces should be hand-washed and airdried for the best results. Avoid wringing them out; it destroys its shape.
Your body has changed
No one stays the same size orshape their whole life. Weight loss and weight gain are a part of life. If there has been a drastic change in your weight, due to a new diet, stress, or just having a busy schedule, it’s time to get a new sports bra. This new one should fit your current measurements and provide the support you require.
