Did you know that nearly one in five women say their breasts stop them from participating in physical activity?
Working out is hard enough without having to worry about your boobs getting in the way, which is why the Boobuddy is the ultimate asset protection during workouts.
From bouncing sore boobs to causing a lack of confidence, breasts can be detrimental to workouts. But it doesn’t have to be that way with a revolutionary fitness accessory that allows you focus solely on your workout.
The Boobuddy is a supportive band that sits above the breasts and reduces movement. From running to horse-riding and even yoga, breast kinetics are affected by any kind of movement, which ultimately can have a direct impact on the health of your breasts.
Researchers at Portsmouth University Department of Sport and Exercise Science has conducted relevant work into breast health with the team concluding that many women could be irreversibly damaging their breasts through inadequate breast support. This can affect a female’s running kinetics and may have negative physiological consequences on sports performance.
The Boobuddy offers a simple yet revolutionary solution, securing your breasts in place without restricting movement or comfort. The Boobuddy can be worn in place of a sports bra or as well as, for additional support.
Running can put excessive tension on the chest muscles, and the Cooper’s ligaments which help to suspend and support the breasts. These ligaments have been found to extend or “creep” during a short run and long-term can have even bigger effects.
The Boobuddy is tried, tested and loved with 130,000 bands sold and a heap of raving reviews. It’s no surprise why Boobuddy is becoming a household name and taking the female fitness world by storm.
Keli Craig, Managing Director of Boobuddy said, “Women often feel self-conscious of their breast when they work out which is why the Boobuddy was created.
“Sports bras have come a long way but they still don’t provide women with enough support. The Boobuddy has helped hundreds of thousands of women get back into exercise by giving them practical support as well as a confidence boost.”
Science behind Boobuddy
The connective tissues in the breasts are called Cooper’s ligaments. They help maintain structural integrity, but they are thin bands and are not that strong. The ligaments connect the breast tissue to the lower layer of skin of the breast. They play a role in supporting the breast in its normal position, and maintaining its normal shape.
Without the internal support of this ligament, the heavy breast tissue sags, losing its shape and contour. The skin is also a major support structure for the breast. Unfortunately, sagging is partly determined by our genes, age, pregnancy, smoking and weight.
