THE BOUNCE MASTERS THE BOUNCE MASTERS
When you’re the only bra the world’s no 1 tennis player, Serena Williams, chooses to wear you know you’re doing something right!
BERLEI + THE AIS
Our dedication to making a bra that looks good and dramatically reduces damaging breast bounce led us to our partnership in the 1990’s with the AIS. We’re the only bra manufacturer that works with the Australian Institute of Sport to test products that deliver bounce reduction of up to 60%. Through our research with the AIS, we’ve created our support factor rating, a unique rating system to help you choose the right bra for your workout.
WHY YOU NEED A SPORTS BRA
Our research with the AIS has shown that an unsupported 12B bust can bounce up to 8cm, even during low impact exercise. A 16DD bust can bounce up to 19cm! This bouncing movement can damage soft tissue and stretch delicate Cooper’s ligaments, which can leading to sagging and permanent breast damage.
Wearing the right sports when exercising is just as important as the right footwear. A supportive and well fitted sports bra will protect your breasts and minimise damage to the soft tissue and Coopers ligaments.
Lauren Wells, an Australian athlete and 400m hurdles semi-finalist in the Olympic Games, has been wearing Berlei sports bras for 10 years.
“Running, in particular hurdling, is an extremely high-impact activity, therefore, by wearing Berlei sports bras, I know that I am always supported to the highest level, without sacrificing comfort. Because of this, I am able to step out on the track every time, and perform to my best, whilst feeling and looking good.
Wearing my Berlei sports bra makes me feel like I can run as fast as I possibly can, with the only ‘bounce’ being when I go over a hurdle!”
We are committed to quality in each and every product, and are renowned for superior fit and support. We work with the latest fabrics and technology and carry out rigorous testing pre and post production. In our sport range, we are the only company that tests our bras with the Australian Institute of Sport.
Small breasted and don’t think you need a sports bra? Think again! An A cup is as just as much risk of sagging as a DD cup.
