Boobuddy (formerly known as Booband) is a wearable band for women who want additional support, comfort, and confidence when exercising. It can be worn across the top of the breasts and either over or under a sports bra or in fact any regular bra.
Why might we get saggy breasts?
Breasts are actually quite complicated and need looking after. 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 the 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.
move as much during a jog as they do during a sprint. Movement when running can result in temporary pain and discomfort. It can also lead to more permanent stretching of Cooper’s ligament and puts more strain on the surrounding skin, which may lead to irreversible breast sag. An ordinary bra can reduce bounce but not as much as a sports bra. Booband, along with a supportive sports bra can help prevent the skin and ligaments from stretching. Running can put excessive tension on the chest muscles, and Cooper’s ligaments that help suspend the breasts. These ligaments have been found to extend or “creep” during a short run. This uncontrolled movement puts great strain on the surrounding tissues and ligaments. The skin is also an important support mechanism and thinning and decreased elasticity of the skin is an important factor in sagging with age.
How does Boobuddy™ help?
Boobuddy helps prevent excessive movement, and therefore supports breast health – especially as breast size increases. It does so by adding more compression to the top of the breasts. Boobuddy can be used in addition to a well-fitted sports bra to add support, not all sports bras will completely prevent bounce.
Remember, it’s much better to do everything you can to stay healthy to prevent sagging because it’s sadly irreversible.
