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.
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
