SPORTS BRA GUIDE

How to choose your Sports bra.

Casall offers a variety of different sport bra models, each with unique characteristics. Your sports bra should feel right for you. The best way to choose the correct Sports bra for you is of course to try it on, we recommend running on the spot, jumping, and stretching while testing the fit. However, we have put together some points to help you guide you in the search for the perfect match. You should also remember that it is not only one choice, actually there can be different Sport bras that suits different occasions.

1. WHAT SIZE SHOULD I HAVE?

The right support matters! Most women wear their bra with a band that’s too loose and a cup that’s too small. When it comes to a sports bra, most of the support should come from the band, not from straps that are too tight.

How can I find my size?

Start by measuring below your bust (B), as you can see on the image below. Then use the table to find your size. Some of our Sport bras have sizes from 70-95 and some use XS-L sizes, you can easily transform your measurement to both variations by using the chart.

What is my cup size?

Measure the fullest part of your chest (A). You then deduct the (B) measurement from (A). For example, if your (A) measurement is 90 you then deduct 75 (B) you then get 15cm which means that you should have a B-cup as you can see in the table.

2. WHAT IS YOUR MAIN ACTIVITY?

Different activities require different levels of support. There’s no doubt that movement in yoga can be entirely different from movement in your gym workouts, so we designed specific support-systems for your asanas and your squats—and everything in between. We divide them in SOUL, BODY and HEART or if you like low, medium and high impact.

 

SOUL SPORT BRAS| LOW IMPACT ACTIVITIES

Our SOUL bras were designed for lower impact activities, like yoga, pilates, power walking, and golf. These bras are made with focus on comfort and mobility and we often use soft materials.

LARGER BUST? WE GOT YOU COVERED!

Even if you have small breast you still need to wear a Sports bra when working out. There are no muscles in your breast . They’re supported only by skin and a network of ligaments. Breast sagging, which is irreversible, occurs when these ligaments are overstretched.

If you have large breasts you need the support of a great Sports bra even more. We recommend that you use a high impact sports bra, that is made of tight materials, adjustable and wide shoulders straps helps to create the perfect fit and shaped cups in the sports bra can offer that extra support. We recommend two of our high impact sports bras, Our High Impact Sports bra is available in sizes 70-95 and you can choose from B, C, D, E, F and G-cups.

FAB FACTS ABOUT YOUR BREASTS AND TRAINING

  1. When you train without a proper sports bra your breasts can move sideways, in and out and up and down, by as much as 20 centimetres. 

  2. There are no muscles in your breasts. They’re supported only by skin and a network of ligaments that weave throughout the beast and attach to the chest wall. Breast sagging, which is irreversible, occurs when these ligaments are overstretched.

  3. With an ordinary bra, breast movement is reduced by around 35%, while a sports bra reduces movement by more than 70%.

  4. Sports bras lose their elasticity over time. Just like training shoes, they need to be changed regularly.

  5. Different activities – and physiques – require different types of support. Casall has a solution to meet most needs.
