When working out, it is crucial that you have the right sports bra for your body shape and size. Sports bras are important because they minimize movement of the breasts during physical activity. Different support levels are necessary for various activities in order or make sure you are not experiencing discomfort. 

 

When you’re exercising, having the best support from a bra is key. The Odlo sports bras are tailored to your needs as an athlete, whilst also taking into account your size and shape. The different designs cater to varying female bodies in a range of styles to suit specific activities. 

Alongside support, comfort is one of the most important factors when choosing a sports bra. Maximum comfort will help achieve high performance. Padding, moulded cups and adjustable straps are all features that increase the comfort level of a sports bra. 

Your body needs to be able to breathe when you are exercising. Temperature-controlled fabrics reduce sweating and increase comfort, keeping you dry and cool.  The Odlo sports bras are made with fast-drying F-Dry fabric that absorbs moisture and displaces excess heat. 

By reducing the ‘bounce’ impact with a sports bra, you are reducing the risk of muscle tear and sagging. It is important to wear a sports bra that fits you correctly, one that firmly fits but is not too tight. The adjustable straps on Odlo sports bras allow you to tailor your bra to fit you perfectly. 

The right style is dependent on the size of your bust as well as the activity you are engaging in. Thicker straps are necessary for women with a larger bust; and more padding can be needed if the activity you are doing is a higher-impact form of exercise.
