Sweaty Betty Women's Running Clothing: Sweaty Betty's Sports Bra has won AWARDS
Sweaty Betty Women’s Running Clothing has been designed by women for women. This has lead to the design of an award winning sports bra.
Every woman knows that choosing the right sports bra is really important for female runners. No matter what size chest you have the right sports bra can make or break the enjoyment of your run.
“Since 2005, a team of researchers at the University of Portsmouth has been investigating the way women’s breasts move during exercise. Headed by Dr Joanna Scurr, the Research Group in Breast Health has been examining the topic from a bio-mechanical, physiological and clinical perspective.
With the female breast moving up to a recorded 21cm during excise, it’s no surprise that 72% of exercising females experience breast pain during physical activity. Unfortunately, the anatomy of the female breast includes only weak, natural supporting structures known as the Coopers ligaments, which weave between the milk glands in thin, fibrous sheets.” Find full article here .
When choosing a sports bra, it’s recommended women try on a variety of bras and select the one they feel is most supportive. A professional bra fitting is always recommended, particularly for larger-breasted women.
It is also recommended that women follow five simple steps to obtain the perfect bra fit:
- the band is horizontal all the way around
- the cups do not bulge or gape
- the under-wire follows the natural curve of the breast tissue
- the front of the bra sits flat against the chest wall
- the shoulder straps are adjusted appropriately

You may spotted me rocking this all over my instagram account. This is my favourite Workout top at the moment!! The design is so pretty and the top is really comfortable on runs. *DISCLAIMER* If you have a larger chest then I’d perhaps advise a supporting bra under, or to limit workouts in this top to yoga/low impact activities. For those with a smaller chest like me… you should be fine running in this top.
