Finding good sports bras that support your bust should be a personal mission whether you run, hit the gym, do yoga or pilates … or simply go for a walk.
Me? I could do a bit of all of the above all in one week. Yes, I’ve become one of THOSE women who actually discovered late in life that she loves exercising. Well, her body and mind do very much appreciate the consistent activity … after the fact.
In the last two-and-a-half years, I’ve not only put my body on the line at regular HIIT classes (High Intensity Interval Training), I’ve learned to run.
When you’re putting your body through things it’s never been put through, it’s good to do that with the help and support of experienced trainers but it’s also essential to have gear that supports you too.
I’m talking tights that support your core; shoes that support your feet and legs; and good sports bras that support your bust.
The bras I trust to that support my 16D girls are Triaction by Triumph sports bras. I’ve been buying (and re-purchasing them) for more than five years now so when Triumph approached me to partner with them, it was a no-brainer because I don’t wear anything else.
I can’t stress how important it is to invest in sports bras that are designed to support your bust, minimise bounce and make you feel comfortable when wearing them.
Triaction by Triumph sports bras are bounce control tested by the University of Porsmouth’s world-renowned Research Group in Breast Health. The range features 60-83% bounce control, one of the best support levels available.
The value (%) tells how supportive and how effective the bra is at reducing excessive breast motion that may occur during exercise. It is measured by testing the difference in breast movement with and without a bra by performing biomechanical assessments to determine the level of support.
Within the Triaction by Triumph range there is a bra to suit every activity and every breast shape and size, whether you’re a triathlete competing at elite level, a yoga lover or someone who likes to get in 30 minute walk each day.
Whatever the activity or bra, you’ll feel supported in a lightweight bra that is so comfortable on, you forget you’re wearing it.
What I wear in the Triaction by Triumph range
The three bras below are all tested as Extreme – with support above 68% – and you can bet I give them a good run for that rating. All are convertible too and I mostly employ the cross-over back straps as extra support and harness power.
This is the original style that first got me started on my love affair with Triaction bras. It’s made from an innovative eco fabric that allows breathability to reduce sweating. The top panel has rigid lining to help reduce the bounce factor. It’s available in sizes up to 22E.
This bra is one of my most recent purchases and I’ve found it next level for bounce control (it’s 77% supportive). It also has the most divine feel on the skin. The breathable, anti-bacterial material has a texture that keeps its shape but ensures you can easily move. The wide band at the bottom of the bra feels really good on the skin (and this is a bit that gets quite sweaty for me) and the padded straps feel great on the shoulder. Available up to 16D
This is also one of my newest purchases. I liked the idea of including minimising features in a sports bra – features usually found just in a regular bra. It gives the look of a crop top but with the support of a bra and can reduce the bust by one cup size. This lightweight bra has been ideal for running. The padded straps are comfortable on the shoulders. Available up to 16DD.
