Anyone who's a little on the chesty side knows how much of a pain it is
to have big boobs. Besides having to deal with leering perverts and
snide remarks about your chest, there's also the physical downsides like
back pain and not being able to find a bra that fits perfectly.
That's where Dr. Joanna Scurr comes in. As the leading 'world expert in breast movement,' Scurr has made it her life's work to develop the perfect sports bra by studying bouncing boobs all day. Her research involves ample amounts of time spent studying breasts — how they move, why they move, and how to keep them in place without causing women discomfort.
Her latest study titled "Predictors of Three-Dimensional Breast Kinematics during Bare-Breasted Running" was just published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise", and involved studying topless women running on a treadmill.
The findings revealed that the bigger the breasts, the more the jiggle. As obvious as that may be, Scurr's findings will help spur clothing manufacturers to better comprehend that larger sized sports bras must be made with larger amounts of support in order to prevent damage to the breast tissue. And finding the right fit is important as breast pain
and breast sag can lead women to forego exercise, which decreases their
quality of life.
So ladies, if you someday find the perfect sports bra to suit your active lifestyle, you know who to thank for your secured cups.
