At Potomac River Running, we offer professional, complimentary sports bra fitting sessions to ensure you are choosing the optimum size and structured sports bra to provide adequate support for high impact activities like running.
Some of the most common complaints we hear from customers about their sports bra fit include the following, with tips on how we can correct these issues and put comfort back into your run:
The Culprit: Your straps may be carrying more than their share of the weight of the breast.
The Solution: Let’s make sure your bottom band and your cup size are perfect, then make strap adjustments to ensure a comfortable, secure fit.
The Culprit: Your bottom band may be too tight or too loose.
The Solution: Chafing should always be at a minimum, if it happens at all. Chafing along the rib cage especially indicates we need to double check those measurements for the best fit.
The Culprit: Your cups or bottom band are most likely too large.
The Solution: Let’s try going down one cup or band size, then making the strap adjustments.
The Culprit: Your straps may be too tight or your bottom band may be too large.
The Solution: If your bottom band is riding up in the back, try loosening the straps. If this doesn’t solve it, try going down one band size. You want the fit to be comfortably secure.
SHOULDER STRAPS SLIPPING
The Culprit: You may have a cup size that’s too large, causing the bra straps, not the cups, to support the weight of the breasts.
The Solution: Try going down one cup size.
