Wearing the Wrong Sports Bra Can Cause Serious Damage

You work hard to look good, but are you forgetting the most important part of your workout?

No, not stretching: proper attire!

Up to 80 percent of women wear the wrong bras while working out. This is worse news than you may have realized, because wearing the wrong one can actually hurt you.

The side effects include back and neck pain, or irreparable destruction to your breasts. The destruction to your breasts can cause ligament damage which results in drooping or stretch marks.

Since your breasts should not be moving while you exercise, be sure to look for a bra with a tight underband and good coverage at the side and top. These features will keep the girls secure.

Another good rule of thumb: your breasts should be closer to your chin than your belly button.

Breast sizes change frequently, so be sure to go to regular fittings to learn your correct size.

The best pro-tip? Rotate wearing your bras, and get rid of them after 100 uses.

Your ladies will thank you!
