Getting dressed for the gym has become just as fun as dressing for a date!

Thanks to the athleisure trend making workout wear accessible virtually everywhere, we can look cute AND be practical.

So why are ladies still wearing their regular bras to the gym!? You might say out of necessity, because you think it’s supportive enough, or because it’s laundry day, but we have some news for you; it’s not safe, and there’s no excuse!

Here’s why!


Regular Bras Don’t Give The RIGHT Support

This bra gives ample support for day to day, but don’t wear it to the gym! Nicole Seamless Padded T Shirt Bra with Lace by Affinitas Intimates

Just because your regular bra pushes you up and holds you up on a day to day basis, it doesn’t mean it’ll hold up in the gym.

Your sports bras are built with a different type of support that’ll keep your breasts where they need to be when you’re lifting, jogging, and moving about. If you don’t have optimal support in the gym, you can actually be causing damage to your breast tissue!


You’re Hurting Your Bras

You spent a lot of money on that cute lacy number – why ruin it by working out in it?!

When you’re sweating it out, the fabric in your bras get worn out and damaged. You’re going to lose your bra before its natural lifespan runs out, so it’s not worth it to wear it to the gym.
It’s Not Hygienic

Sports bras are made with unique material that helps control moisture and absorb it up, and they can even keep you cool when you’re getting hot during your routine.

A regular bra can’t do this for you, and the constant friction can lead to irritation, itching, and can even make some ladies break out around their chest. Your sweat has nowhere to go, and you’re setting yourself up for unnecessary discomfort.


Sports Bras Are CUTE!

Sports bras have come a long way since their inception, and it’s a super cool look to just head to the gym in a sports bra!

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look good when you’re going to the gym, but you don’t need a push-up bra to do so. Splurge on a sports bra that does both for you – keeps you supported and looking cute!

Have you made this lingerie mistake when heading to the gym?
