What type of cup design does this fitness bra have?
This fitness bra has separate built-in cups.
Why is the sports bra 500 designed for medium-impact activities?
This sports bra 500, with MEDIUM SUPPORT*, is suitable for moderate-impact fitness sports (fitness dance, cardio training, step) * reduces bust movement by 30.2% during MODERATE-IMPACT activities compared with a standard bra.
The shiny fabric lends a feminine style
A sports must-have:
When working out, your breasts are put through more stress and impacts than during your daily activities. They are subject to movements and bouncing that can create a force of up to five times their actual weight. Wearing a sports bra provides both the support and comfort you need when doing a physical activity.
Protect your breasts:
No matter your cup size or age, your breasts suffer a lot of impacts during exercise. As fragile organs supported almost exclusively by your skin, they need specialist support. If you just wear a normal bra with less support, it could lead to pain and, over time, to sagging. A sports bra is just as important as your other sports clothes and shoes, protecting your chest from impacts.
Three levels of support depending on your sport:
- Light support (Pilates, gentle dance-fitness-gymnastics, strength training, etc.) for activities where the breasts will not move much. - Medium support (cardio training, fitness dancing, step, etc.) for moderate, non-repeated bouncing. - High support (HIIT, cardio circuits, cross training, treadmill running, etc.) for activities involving intensive movements.
Choosing the right size
The right size ensures good support and a comfortable fit. To figure out your bra size, take your bust measurement: * Measure yourself without a bra on. * Use a mirror. * Hold your tape measure horizontally at the top of your back towards the bottom of your shoulder blades. * Bring the tape measure across the fullest part of your bust. Without pulling it tight, take the measurement. You can then check this measurement against the size chart.
How are DOMYOS bras designed?
Our models are designed to increase comfort and help prevent health problems: * we do not use underwiring (risk of injury and compression of the lymph nodes) * we minimise seams near the nipple (to prevent chafing) * we use components that wick perspiration away from the body (improves the level of comfort and considerably lowers the risk of chafing).
How are DOMYOS bras tested?
All our products are verified in our in-house labs in France using our bust support test (measures the decrease in acceleration of the breasts during sports). They are rated and categorised: 1: light support 3: medium support 5: high support * Our sports bras guarantee a reduction in the acceleration of the bust compared with a standard bra. 10% minimum (level 1) up to over 50% (level 5).
Are products tested before being sold?
Of course! All our fabrics are rigorously tested in the lab to ensure comfort and safety. We test colourfastness, resistance to washing, perspiration wicking and more - we call these our "torture tests". And then? Is that all? No, there's more. Sports users like you test our products. We collect their feedback and tweak what needs improvement. And your sports kit is ready!
A rating to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impacts of the product are calculated across its entire lifecycle and using various indicators. An overall rating (ABCDE) is given, allowing you to easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, bottoms, backpacks etc.). Decathlon openly displays the environmental ratings of its products. Find out more: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
