How to check if your sports bra fits
Here's how to get your cups, band and straps to fit like a dream.
Step 1. The Band
Needs to be made of strong, wide elastic so it can support properly. It will feel firmer than an everyday bra but not so tight that it is uncomfortable.
Rotate your upper body and raise your arms. If your band doesn't stay in place, it's too big. If you feel restricted or see spillage, it's too small.
Step 2. The Cups
A sports bra should minimise movement. Your breasts must be completely covered or encased within the cups to effectively limit any movement.
Do a squat jump. If you feel too much movement, go down a cup size. If your breasts spill out, go up a cup size.
Step 3. The Straps
Straps should fit firmly but not too tight or too loose. Adjust the straps as necessary, try crossing them over or opt for a racerback style.
