Is It Bad to Wear a Sports Bra All Day, Every Day? We Asked Experts
Let's not sugarcoat things: A lot has changed over the past year. Our homes have become our office spaces, gyms, and restaurants. We've traded in cute dresses and pants that zipper for cozy sweats. And above all else, we've fully embraced the sports bra.
Nobody likes being poked and prodded by superfluous underwire, so why clasp on a proper bra if the biggest to-do of the day is dialing into a Zoom call? Some experts claim there's nothing wrong with going au naturel, but if you are craving some extra support, a sports bra can be a happy medium. Not only is it an underwire-free way to support your girls, but it can also transition you nicely from your virtual workout to a Netflix marathon.
At first glance, wearing a sports bra all day, every day seems like a good thing. Some hypothesize that wearing a sports bra may help maintain the shape of your breasts (by preventing sagging or drooping) and absorb sweat, thanks to its workout-friendly, moisture-wicking material. However, wearing a sports bra 24/7 isn't all it's cracked up to be.
So, what's the deal? Should we be wearing sports bras on the regular? And what happens when we do wear a sports bra all day? (We mean, that's exactly what we've been doing for the past year.) We chatted with some experts to get to the bottom of your WFH staple.
