With the summer season upon us, participating in outdoor sport has a great allure, and of course Wimbledon inspires all to pull out the rackets and try our hand at tennis!
But when you’re donning the whites, do you always make sure you have adequate support underneath?
Scientists at the University of Portsmouth have worked out that in a two-hour game of high impact tennis, the average unsupported breast endures an average of 9.08cm of 3D movement!
So when Serena and Venus took to centre court on the weekend, their breasts travelled a staggering 1400m in the match!
The problem is, putting your breasts through this kind of continuous strain causes long term damage, such as saggy, unattractive, ‘tuck them in your belt’ boobs, not to mention extreme discomfort which ruins the enjoyment of sport for so many well-endowed women. Long term damage is practically irreversible (or at best a very expensive painful process).
Shock Absorber offer anti-bounce technology and integrate it with contemporary, attractive designs. Their range accommodates for anyone, no matter what size you are, and whatever level of support you need for your activity.
To calculate how much support you should be giving your breasts and pick a bra that’s right for you go to: www.shockabsorber.co.uk/bounceometer
