Yes, you can wear a regular bra underneath your sports bra for additional support and coverage. However, it is important to choose the right combination of bras to ensure comfort and functionality during physical activity. I recommend selecting a seamless or lightly padded regular bra that provides good coverage and support without adding bulk or causing discomfort. It should also be moisture-wicking to keep you dry during workouts.

It’s crucial to choose a sports bra with appropriate compression or encapsulation features that provide proper support and minimize breast movement during exercise. Look for a sports bra with adjustable straps and band for a customizable fit, as well as breathable, moisture-wicking fabric to keep you cool and dry. It’s important that the regular bra underneath doesn’t have underwire which could dig into your skin or cause irritation when worn with the compression of the sports bra.

One common misconception is that wearing two bras will restrict movement too much; however, the truth is that layering a regular bra under a sports bra can actually provide extra stability and support, especially for those with larger breasts or engaging in high-impact activities like running or jumping. This combination also allows for versatility in adjusting straps or bands to customize fit for different body types.

A less-known fact is that wearing both bras can also help prevent chafing by creating an extra layer of protection against friction from clothing during workouts. Knowing this can be useful because it enables you to maximize comfort while staying active without sacrificing support.

The next step would be to try on different combinations of regular bras and sports bras to find the best fit for your unique body shape and workout preferences. Don’t hesitate to ask our staff for personalized recommendations based on your specific needs – we’re here to help.
