Most forms of exercise make your breasts bounce up and down, regardless of your cup size. Now this isn’t a laughing matter as it can pose serious risks to your health. Our breasts are made up of fatty tissue which is surrounded by skin and fragile ligaments called ‘Coopers Ligaments’. The problem with this is once Coopers Ligaments are stretched or broken down, they will sag and nothing can fix this. It doesn’t matter whether you breasts are big or small, we all have Coopers Ligaments that can be broken down over time and they won’t bounce back. When choosing a sports bra make sure to consider whether you are going to be doing high or low impact exercise as there are different bras to suit each of these.

- High Impact Sports Bra: My personal fav for many years has been the Supernova series
