How to choose the right sports bra
Keeping up a good exercise routine can be difficult. Not only do you have to find activities that are beneficial and suitable for you, there is also the issue of finding the time. Once you have made the effort to make time and choose an exercise style, it is important to make sure that you have the right equipment to make your routine easier; this includes having the correct clothes.
One of the most important items of clothing for any woman when working out is the sports bra. It is vital that you ensure you are getting all the support you need while working out, something traditional bra designs don't really offer.
While all sports bras help to provide support while exercising, there are a number of different styles that can suit your own preferences; helping you to feel more comfortable. So how do you know what sports bra is right for you?
The type of exercise that you undertake will affect the type of sports bra you should choose. Low-impact workouts, such as walking and yoga, require less support than high-impact exercises, like aerobics and running.
You need to assess the type of exercise you will be undertaking and select a bra that helps to hold you firmly in place.
The size of your breasts is always an important aspect when it comes to choosing a bra and a sports bra is no different. There are a number of sports bras that function in different ways but only certain styles are right for some breast sizes.
Smaller breasts, cups A and B, can benefit from compression styles. These work by compressing the breasts to restrict any movement. For high-impact workouts you should go for a style that has a racerback with thick straps, while thin straps and a scoop back are suitable for lower impact exercises.
For slighter larger breasts - cups C and D - you are best off choosing a style that encapsulates and compresses. This will provide you with a much greater level of support compared to just compression. Once again, the different types of back and strap thickness offers various levels of support.
Bras that use the encapsulation method only, are best for breasts that are larger than a D cup. These have individual cups that work to provide support to each breast separately, providing better all-round support.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
