Anita Sports bras
It's a very good question, experts agree that a sports bra is a very essential item. Do you know that during jogging the breast moves around 9 centimetres with each step - over a course of 1,000 metres this amounts to 84 metres!
Wearing a supporting sports bra prevents around 74% of the upward and downward motion of your sensitive breast tissue. Compare this to wearing a normal bra which would only manage to support 38%!
But back to the question why are Anita Active Sports bras different from conventional sports bras?

- Each Anita Active Sports bra benefits from Anita's expertise in bra manufacturing which extends back now to over a century.
- Anita guarantee above-average comfort and function of all their sports bras.
- All Anita bras are developed and manufactured within Anita's premises to ensure an exceptional high standard.
TIPS TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN BUYING A SPORTS BRA
Anita asked Dr Sylvia Beckstein - What are the possible negative consquences of not wearing a sports bra? Her reply was:
With large breasts in particular there is the risk that the tissue becomes overstretched and the breasts loses its firmness and elasticity. This affects all the muscles in the back and especially those of the shoulders and neck. In some cases the consequences can be extremely painful. A sports bra reliably protects and encompasses the breasts, the breast tissue remains elastic and does not lose its firmness.
Can a Sports Bra help the breast tissue retain its Firmness?
Yes, definitely, wearing a sports bra all the time will mean that the connective tissue remains firm, which is obviously what women want. It is important to make sure whatever your sport that you do wear a bra, be it for endurance sports, gymnastics, hikinkg or skiing as each activity involves a different degree of jolting and shock.
What Features are Essential in an Optimum Sports Bra?
- The straps are very important and should be wide and have a good contact surface to ensure the best distribution of weight on the shoulders.
- It should also be ensured that the bra does not cut in and it should move and adapt to the motion of the wearer.
- Flat and soft seams are also important to prevent skin irritation. the fabric should be breathable and ensure optimum moisture transport.
- This is particularly important when the body temperature rises during sports activities.
- The breast requires firm support, but the fabric should be lightweight and soft. It should feel like a second skin.
Thank you so much Dr Beckstein, we do hope the above helps our customers when choosing their sportsbras.
