Mistake #1: Your band size is too loose
This might be the most common of all the sports bra issues we list. And this is the case when buying any bra – band too loose, cup too small. Nobody wants to deal with a sports bra that is so tight that it is chafing. Not fun. But if the band is riding up in the back, that’s a major clue that it’s too loose.
Get the right bra: Always check the fit of the band before you buy. According to Leroux, “you need tension but should still be able to insert a finger under the elastic band without feeling uncomfortable.” It will likely be easier to achieve this if you go for a sports bra that is bra-sized (example, 32, 34, 36 etc.) as opposed to just small, medium, large. If you go into the fitting room knowing that the support should come from the band, that will help.
Available in band sizes 30 to 46 and seamlessly shaped cups from A to H, this sports bra has the options you need to ensure the proper fit for any sport. Padded straps and moisture wicking fabric will help you go the extra distance.
