For the past month or so I have been putting the Berlei Sports Crop through its paces and when I say paces I mean, sprinting, burpees, back lever practice, pull ups, box jumps, squat jumps, crawls and general every day wear…I am so grateful to receive parcels of active wear and so I like to really try things out and review them thoroughly for you. This process usually involves plenty of sweating…
It’s safe to say I am now a BIG fan of Berlei. As the sister brand of Gossard, they know what they’re doing and with added design sass, which, lets be honest, is what us girls love!! They take protecting our breasts very seriously, which I am pleased about, as I will admit to having not always worn the right bra for some of the high impact work I do. I am lucky that one of my best friends works in lingerie and takes it upon herself to check my bra collection and cut up those which don’t make the grade. Plenty of LOLs but with a serious tone. Here’s why…
Protect the boobs:
- Damage to your breasts is irreversible – yes, irreversible! Yikes…This damage inevitably leads to sagging as breasts aren’t muscle…we all know we don’t want sagging! A good sports bra can reduce movement by up to 83%!
- Your breasts can move up to 9cm during exercise and they do so in a figure of 8 motion if unsupported. That is between 400-600g of weight bouncing around…even if you’re in the smaller B-C cup range, this still applies…
- 64% of women complain about pain during exercise and cut their workouts short because of it…That’s a lot…and all they need is a good sports bra!
I don’t think many of us ladies wear the right size bras, let alone the right sports bra, but it is definitely time to make a change and start looking after those breasts…
Style and support:
So, the Sports Crop Top has been a dream to wear. When I first put it on I thought it was too small for me as it sits right under my bust. Much higher up and tighter than my normal (non supportive) bras, but now I’ve worn it so much I’m like, duh, of course it is – it’s a proper bra!!
The style of the bra is very much wearable both under your kit (handy) and as a crop top in its own right on show. The cut out back is designed for breathability but it looks really stylish as well so that’s a bonus…It’s actually my fave feature of the bra itself! The material and design means that even though it’s high impact support, I forget I’m wearing it. It’s genuinely THAT comfortable! No rubbing…nothing! Just support and sass!
No sports bra, no sport:
Check out the Berlei campaign featuring the Women’s England Hockey Team for #beatthebounce and for a very apt Wimbledon theme, check out Serena Williams giving a Berlei safety demonstration – very fun!
Whether yours are big or small, you NEED a good, supportive sports bra and I would fully recommend checking out Berlei – they know what they’re doing and they do it with style…perfect! Oh and there’s a sale on at the moment…. Go, go, go!!
