Wearing a good, well-fitting sports bra greatly helps reduce breast discomfort during high-impact exercise, such as running. Normal bras can be tight enough during physical exertion that they dig into your shoulders or sides, or they can be so loose that your breasts are bouncing,
Keep in mind, though, that there is no one-size-fits-all sports bra. And it is good to change your sports bra after a couple of years of use, as they lose their stretch.
Types of sports bras: Sports bra design is mainly broken down into three categories: compression (stop movement by flattening breasts and pulling them close to the body), encapsulation (separating the breasts into cups and provide support through seaming, molding, or underwire instead of flattening them), and a combination of the two. Encapsulation bras provide more support.
A good sports bra is made from fabric that bounces back after being stretched to keep breasts securely in place. But, tehre is no fixed type of fabric. You have to check for yourself.
