NOW UNTIL SEPTEMBER 23!

Straps, seams important in bra selection From Page 14 3) The Fabric In recent years sports bras have benefited from the advance in high performance fabrics that wick moisture away from the skin and keep you dryer and cooler. Fabrics such as Coolmax which has a unique fibre construction that helps to keep you cool and dry. X-static is a pure silver coated antimicrobial yarn that helps to eliminate bacterial build up and has excellent wickability and breathability properties. Supplex is a soft nylon yarn that handles like cotton, this enables quick drying, up to 40 per cent faster than cotton; it is abrasion resistant to minimize pilling and is easy to look after. Please ladies, be on the lookout for “dead bra”—the moment when the fabric loses its functionality. On average, a machinehandled sports bra will last about six months but if you hand wash and line dry it instead of machine handle, it will last about twice as long. 4) The Seams Here’s a manufacturing detail you probably wouldn’t concern yourself with when shopping for a bra, but would later lament if it proves painful to you. Although the quality of sports bras has in general improved in recent years, some still have poorly placed seams that can irritate or promote chafing. The solution: look for cups

that are seamless (or have covered seams) and insist on hooks or fasteners that are covered with fabric and cushioned for maximum protection. 5) The Straps Again, something you might not worry about in the store—but don’t overlook the fact that straps can interrupt your physical activity and prove a real nuisance when they slip. Choose wide nonstretch and adjustable straps for best results. In addition, a wide Y-back panel or cross straps can help increase support. 6) Recommendations Bra selection is a matter of preference but some brands stood out when it comes to quality/price. Moving Comfort offers 14 different styles with cup sizes that vary from A-E and have an on-line “sports bra fitting room” at movingcomfort.com. You can find their collection at the Running Room stores. Under Armour, a newcomer in the world of welldesigned sports bras, offers a variety of good quality ones. So whatever your sport or activity you have no excuse for not wearing a good, comfortable bra, that in the long run may keep you looking and performing better.
