Boobs and Exercise

Exercise is a word that some ladies love and some fear, however you feel about it we all know it is good for us…but what about for our boobs?  The thought of them bouncing around while running and instinctively doing that awkward arms crossed across your chest thing to try and hide the bounce and stop the pain.

With a study showing that 88% of adolescent females are wearing a sports bra that does not fit them correctly and 85% did not know the basics of a proper bra fit, we have some facts on why you need to support your girls while exercising.

  1. Breasts are not made up of muscle, so exercise does nothing to make them stronger.  They are made of fat, tissue, milk glands and Coopers Ligaments.
  2. During physical exercise, your boobs can move up and down as much as 14cm due to lack of support. Wow! This not only makes you uncomfortable but also stretches the skin and delicate breast tissue and ligaments which can cause sagging.14cm breast movement
  3. D cup breasts can weigh up to 600grams each, that’s the equivalent of almost 1.2 litres of milk hanging from your chest.   This is a lot of weight on a daily basis, even before adding in movement with exercise, so great support is essential for bigger busted ladies.
  4. Elasticity decreases with age so the older we get the more support we need, especially whilst exercising.
  5. Unsupported, heavy breasts cause slouching and can negatively affect sporting performance. It can also lead to back aches, neck strain and headaches.
  6. Different types of exercise require different levels of support, vertical movement of the body creates more breast movement, running in particular, therefore require more support.

With marathon season upon us, many of you are increasing your training times and boob bounce is real…never fear ladies because we have just the support you need.

Three tips to improve your running.

Tips for running blog


Cardio is hard-io. Many people have a love/hate relationship with running. It’s hard, it’s hot but if you’re looking to trim that waistline it’s a great fitness option. The following tips will help you get the most out of your run and dare we say it…even enjoy it!

1. Accelerations/Decelerations

Break up the monotony of your running by working short sprints into your endurance training on a regular basis. This keeps your running form dynamic and makes you focus on your muscles and how your body is feeling. You won’t make performance gains if you always run at the same speed. So speed up and slow down to keep your body guessing.

2. Hill sprints

Running is not just about endurance training: Your body also requires strength. Why not try hill sprints at the end of a run.  This turns your regular run into a complete cardio and strength workout and helps you run with a more powerful stride.

3. Trail running

Take advantage of the benefits of changing surfaces. Every surface has its own unique challenges. Your body must learn to react to them by unconsciously adapting your stride, foot strike and step frequency. This method is guaranteed to spice up your running training and nip boredom in the bud!

Whenever you run, we recommend wearing a Pinkclover Breastband. This clever little accessory keeps your breasts feeling snug and supported.
