So you’ve decided the time has come to get back on the exercise horse. GO MAMA. But how to keep those brand new breastfeeding boobs under control? THAT can be tricky.
Breast tissue is a sensitive beast at the best of times, prone to stretching and damage if not treated with enough TLC. Add breastfeeding into the equation and the right support becomes absolutely essential. Enter Cadenshae, activewear for nursing mums. Designed specifically with breastfeeding boobs in mind, Cadenshae is all about helping mums to be active while giving the freedom to feed, wherever and whenever.
Their range of breastfeeding sports bras is extensive and cater for women of different sizes and activity levels. Which is awesome. But we get that choosing the right bra for your specific needs can be confusing (especially when you add sleep deprivation to the mix!).
That’s why we pulled together this guide to help you work out which bra is right for you.
To work out the best bra for your needs, you need to decide WHAT you’ll be doing whilst wearing the bra.
Low impact activities – Exercise like walking, yoga, cycling or just dealing with #mumlife AKA activities with minimal ‘bounce potential’. These activities require less support.
Moderate impact activities –Exercise like weights or classes at the gym AKA activities with some ‘bounce potential’. These activities require a moderate level of support.
High impact activities – Exercise that involves a lot of movement. Jogging/running, crossfit, more intense gym classes (F45 or similar). Without a good sports bra, these activities will see your breasts bouncing all over the place.
Do your cups runneth over? Cadenshae cater for a full range of cup sizes, with specific bras being more suited to larger cup sizes and vice versa. shop via your cup size.
