Girls as young as 14 are experiencing discomfort and embarrassment about their breasts. According to the University of Portsmouth, just one in every ten 14-year-old girls meet the government physical activity guidelines. Why? They think their breasts are too big, or they can’t find the right-fitting sports bra for their bodies.
Professor Joanna Scurr, who heads the Research Group in Breast Health for Portsmouth suggests that exercising with a well-fitted sports bra is just as important as running in the right type of shoes.
"Regardless of breast size, a well-fitted sports bra can make the world of difference to your workout, as well as your general health and well-being," Says Scurr.
