Is an underwired sports bra for you? Many women love an underwire in their sports bra for a variety of reasons. One of the biggest benefits to wearing an these bras is the added shape they provide. This is through the presence of the underwire.
Many more traditional sports bras were very compressing. They squashed the breasts down onto the chest wall, giving the monoboob effect. An underwired sports bra will give a great breast shape, just like your regular everyday bra.
Many larger breasted women and women with active daily lives have taken to wearing a sports bra everyday for support. However they want to maintain a separated, lifted breast shape. An underwire sports bra is very popular amongst this sector of women. They deliver the dream combo of support and shape.
The underwires will often be silicone encased, surrounded by padding, to minimise the chance of any rubbing or discomfort. The Panache Ultimate wired sports bra is a prime example of this.
A recent study found that a common feature in top performing sports bras was the encapsulation style, as seen in underwired bras. These bras were found to deliver excellent support.
You can find an underwire sports bra either with or without moulding or padding. The Elomi Energise and Panache Sculptresse are unpadded. The Panache Ultimate and Pour Moi Empower both feature moulded cups.
