But some say the rules are still too vague.
I started running in 1991. During this time, finding a good, supportive sports bra was really limited. The sports bras were mostly cross back and strapped you in. There wasn't much stretch and I could barely breathe -- the bras were so restrictive. At the end of a long run, I would have painful chafing. Not fun.
I am a curvy woman and also very active. When I first started running in 1991, I quickly understood the need for proper support. Recently, I spoke with Olivia Leroux, Marketing and Sales Manager of Anita Canada. Olivia shared with me the top tips for women of all shapes, to find the best fitting athletic bra.
We've all seen it: a woman running, arms moving, legs going... and breasts flying erratically in every direction. Ouch! While it's easy to assume she's is not wearing a bra, chances are, she is not wearing the right bra.
