Imagine yourself in your workout gear. Are you wearing a compression top plus leggings with a light-reflective side stripe detail and the latest running kicks that retail at about RM800? Yes? Nice!
Next question, what’s your sports bra situation like and when was the last time you replaced it? If you can’t answer this, here’s the #teamCLEO PSA to you: A sports bra should typically be replaced every 6 to 12 months, Health.com reports.
Howewer, you also need to factor in how often you’re exercising. Kendra Sands, product line manager at Under Armour tells My Fitness Pal, “It really comes down to the intensity and frequency of the workouts. If you’re training for a marathon, you would need to replace [your bras] every three months”. Ill-fitting bras hurt your back – do not proceed.
In short, if your sports bra has been worn out loose and is a tad too comfortable (ie. you have less support) and you notice your girls bouncing when you’re exercising, it’s shopping time.
