About Sports Bras

One of the many "joys" of being a woman is trying to contain the "girls" during high-activity exercise. Thankfully, in 1977, two inventive women named Lisa Lindahl and Polly Smith created the first modern sports bra by sewing together two jock straps. This first design was aptly titled the "jockbra." Sports bras have come a long way since then, and most women will not exercise without one. Sports bras come in many designs and support levels. High impact sports bras are great for women who do activities with high levels of movement, such as kickboxing or running. Some women have a favorite brand, preferring Under Armour or Nike sports bras to match their other workout clothing. No matter what brand, eBay has a great selection of new sports bras sold through a number of reliable merchants. This ensures that you can find one that is perfect for you.
