Every female runner knows that the right breast support is just as important as the right trainers. Having experienced the excruciating pain that is chafing so bad it bleeds after a long run on a hot day in a sports bra that wasn’t properly fitted, I can tell you it is not something I would wish on my worst enemy. OUCH.
Like many women, I don’t even go for fittings for my regular bras. I think I know my size and I continue to buy in that size until it becomes blatantly obvious that I am wearing the WRONG size. And having lost a bit of weight last year I’ve been wearing the wrong size fairly regularly.
Along with a group of Operation Movers, I spent a morning at She Science finding out what makes them different to every other bra shop. And it starts with the fact that they genuinely cater to nearly every size and shape.
Finding the right support when you aren’t within the ‘standard’ range of sizes can be nightmarish, but She Science stock bras from 8A to 22J and make sure that the bra you buy is going to give you the greatest support possible. No more doubling up with a second bra or a crop top for those with a little more up top.
The thing that makes She Science really stand out from the crowd is their amazing fitting system. The fitting rooms are equipped with treadmills and video equipment, so once your actual size has been determined (as opposed to the size you think you are) you can try the various styles and shapes of sports bra available and then have a video comparison that will show you which bra offers the greatest support.
With a range of products that offer racerback, standard strap, compression, encapsulation or both as options, and the loveliest support crew you could hope to meet, it is an experience that every sports woman should have.
She Science are located at
