Sports Bras 101

Learn here about how MPG's sports bras fit you best.

Different activities create unique motions that can cause your breasts to move in various ways, sometimes up and down by as much as 8 inches. Finding the right amount of support to keep you comfortable and in place is crucial.

Make a Move

Test your sports bra by engaging in some of the motions you'll be doing during an actual workout. Try a different size or style if you feel any discomfort, pain, or the fit feels less-than-fully secure.
(With MPG's no-fuss return policy, you can conduct sports bra tests in the privacy of your own home to determine which style is best for you.)

What level of support do you need?

Sports bras offer three different levels of support: light, medium, and maximum impact.The type you need depends on your cup size and the kind of exercise you do.

Light to Medium Support Sports Bras

Construction: Low-medium impact sports bras typically restrict movement by tightly pressing the breasts against the chest wall.

Low-impact activities: Walking, yoga, strength training.

Medium-impact activities: Dancing, skiing, cycling

Maximum Support Sports Bras

Construction: High impact bras are made with an articulated cup structure to support each breast fully, and some high-impact bras will combine cup encapsulation with compression for maximum support.

High-impact activities: Running, aerobics, mountain biking.
