  • Each sport needs its own sconce. There are low, medium and even shockproof models. If you are not sure which one to buy, then consult with the seller.
  • The fabric on the cups should be dense and smooth. If you see wrinkles on it, then the cup is too big.
  • Remember that after 30-40 washes, a sports bra loses its properties.

Wear the wrong bra

A bra should not cause a desire to remove it as soon as possible. If you feel pain or discomfort while wearing, then think again whether you have chosen it correctly. How to find the perfect bra:

  • He should not dig into the sides.
  • Nipples in it are located somewhere in the middle between the shoulder and elbow joints.
  • Belts should not be too tight or leave marks on the shoulders.
  • Make sure that the cup tissue is smooth and that the edges fit snugly against the chest.
  • When taking measurements, then consider the size of both the strap and the cups.
  • It’s better to try on several models to find your exact one.

Do piercing

Use teip to fix the chest

When you want to wear an open dress, and a bra doesn’t fit for him at all, then adhesive tape or duct tape seems to be the perfect solution. Even stars often resort to this. But this is not the best solution for the health of your breasts. Tape can cause allergies, rashes around the nipples, itching, and even inflammation.

Forget to moisturize the skin of the chest

We do not forget about face cream, hands or feet, but sensitive areas such as breasts are periodically ignored. And she also deserves everyday care. The skin on this part of the body is very thin and quickly loses elasticity. If you want a young and beautiful breast, treat it with lotions and creams.

Do not use deodorant

Hot days or intense workouts will make you sweat pretty. And for the chest, this is not very good. Sensitive skin in this area immediately responds to temperature changes and becomes irritated. This can be avoided by following simple tips:

  • Do not buy bras made of synthetic fabric.
  • Get models with a moisturizing effect (it turns out, and there are such).
  • Use deodorant without aluminum, try special lotions that prevent chest sweating.
  • On the extreme version of the bra cup, you can slightly powder with baby powder, it also absorbs excess moisture.
