Sports Bras – The Must Have Addition For Your Fitness Wardrobe

Times have certainly changed and sports bras have come along for the ride. Gone are the days of hideous sports bras that hold you down and hide your figure. In today’s world, sports bras are just as stylish as they are functional and the Vivendi Apparel High Impact Sports Bra is of no exception.

That being said, despite the now stunning options out there, people still question the difference between a sports bra and a regular bra, while others question the need for one entirely.

One of the biggest myths out there is that because you don’t necessarily take part in particularly ‘active’ sports or physical exercise, you don’t need a sports bra. This couldn’t be further from the truth. 

Today we’re looking at how sports bras help you beyond regular bras as well as when they’re best worn. Let’s get to it…

The Benefits Of Sports Bras

Sports bras aren’t just a nice to have, they’re essential and here’s why.

AVOID DISCOMFORT

Whether you’re an avid gym user or you simply like going for a brisk walk every so often, you will at some time start to feel some discomfort when wearing a regular bra. Even when carrying out low impact exercises such as stretching or cycling, you may experience breast discomfort without the proper support. You may also experience tension in the shoulders as well as uncomfortable sweaty patches under your breasts that could lead to serious chaffing in regular bras. It just makes sense to avoid it altogether and use a fit for purpose sports bra.

PREVENT PREMATURE SAGGING

Researchers have spent many hours researching the breast area and sagging. It’s concluded, quite rightly, that movement combined with inadequate support can and does lead to premature sagging of the breast. In fact, a study was carried out by the University of Portsmouth that showed breasts move far more than a regular everyday bra is designed to cope with. Wearing sports bras with extra support will therefore reduce the movement and overtime, reduce the amount that your breasts will sag.

AVOID BREAST PAIN

Whenever you move, the ligaments in your breast move too. Whether that’s up, down or side to side. Without the correct support, this movement can be exaggerated and subsequently cause pangs of pain with sharp, jerky movement of the breast. With the help of a sports bra however, your breast movement will be greatly reduced, in turn, eliminating the breast pain during low impact and even high impact exercises.

ENJOY COMFORT FOLLOWING SURGERY

For those who go through breast surgery, a well supporting sports bra is exactly what’s needed. Not only will this reduce movement following surgery but it will help to keep implants in place while the healing process takes place. Surgeons recommend decent sports bras for up to 6-8 weeks following breast augmentation or reconstructive surgery.

LOOK AS GOOD AS YOU FEEL

Sports have changed a lot since they were first invented and now, you can look as good as you feel. Check out the amazing mesh material as well as the stunning Vivendi wings on our very own high impact sports bras? They’re as fashionable as they are functional. 

FOCUS ON YOUR SPORT

Without the correct support, it can become difficult to focus on the task in hand. With a well supporting bra, instead of trying your best to bear through the breast pain and discomfort, you can instead focus solely on your sport, your gym session or even the beautiful scenery on your evening walk.

5 Ways To Wear Compression Leggings

Compression leggings have been a staple wardrobe addition for almost every athlete throughout the sports industry. From football to rugby, as well as the likes of running, gymnastics and a whole lot more.

Compression wear has been worn across the board for virtually years. Yet despite the obvious benefits of this technical fabric, it would seem only now is compression wear actually beginning to become more mainstream, venturing into the field of vision of regular gym users and workout fanatics. Here at Vivendi Apparel, we’d even argue that we were one of the first companies to introduce this incredible sports wear to the equestrian industry.

For those new to the notion of compression wear and the associated benefits, we thought we’d show you the plethora of ways the compression wear can help you, as well as when you should be wearing it. To truly help you understand why compression wear is such an important addition to your wardrobe, let’s look at the benefits of this material first and foremost.

Compression Leggings – The Versatility

Compression wear isn’t just tight clothing. It’s a technical fabric that, thanks to science, can provide you with a number of benefits aside from a rather flattering and snug fit. If you’re a serious athlete, whether you’re an equestrian, a long distance rower or a cyclist, here are just some of the benefits you can expect to enjoy:

  • Increased blood flow
  • Added support for muscles and joints
  • Reduction in muscle vibration during particular explosive exercises
  • Reduction in injuries overall
  • Reduction in muscle recovery time

While this list is far from exclusive, it does give you a much better picture of just what compression wear can do for you. Now the question lies around when exactly is best to wear them. While many wear them during their schooling sessions or weight training sessions, we can say without question that those aren’t the only times they should be worn if you’d like to truly see the benefit of them. Here’s when to wear compression wear outside of your training sessions.

PRE-WORKOUT

Did you know when wearing compression wear, you actually warm up much quicker than you otherwise would? Due to the technical fabric creating more pressure, your blood flow is increased further which allows your muscles to warm up and stretch far easier than you would without compression wear.

RECOVERY

The great majority of us experience what’s known as DOMs (delayed onset of muscle soreness) after working out and our legs can often feel like jelly. By wearing your compression wear after an intense workout session, you provide your muscles with much needed support, helping blood flow to remain at optimum levels and therefore help their recovery. Many even sleep in their compression leggings too, to aid in recovery throughout the night.

WATER SPORTS

This is something we’re starting to see more of here at Vivendi Apparel. From Jasmine of Rudderly Mad, training to row across the Atlantic Ocean solo as well as a number of other customers choosing to wear our compression wear for kayaking, canoeing and more; compression wear is incredibly compatible with water sports for the simple fact that the technical fabric is moisture wicking, keeping wearers dry and cool while also helping to prevent chaffing and rubbing.

TRAVELLING

If you’re a frequent traveller, then you’ll know that compression socks are often worn during flights and long car journeys. This is primarily to help keep blood flowing through our extremities despite inactivity. Compression wear being worn during times like this will help to lower the chance of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).

FASHION

Last but most certainly not least, compression wear may well serve a very important purpose for our health before, during and after workouts but compression wear isn’t just functional. Here at Vivendi Apparel, we’ve worked hard to create a functional brand that looks just as amazing too. 

With that in mind, we firmly believe compression wear shouldn’t be limited to the gym or the arena; in fact, we’re confident that our compression wear can be worn as every day wear just as easily.
