Nike Clothing for Women
Nike isn't just for working out anymore. The brand's evolving looks, silhouettes, and palettes let you breeze from the running trail to a casual outing in the city or country, all while wearing Nike separates. Following are questions and answers regarding Nike clothing.Are Nike’s encapsulation and compression features the same?
They are not the same, and each provides its own unique benefits. Compression presses tissue against your body, keeping your muscles warm and preventing soft tissue from bouncing and jiggling. Encapsulation entails the use of a cup or shaping capsule that provides form-fitting support and control of your breasts or buttocks. If you're curvy and have more soft tissue and/or you frequently engage in high-impact activity, consider encapsulation. Both are features of Nike women's apparel, especially shorts, pants, tights, and sports bras.How do you choose the correct size Nike sports bra?
Sports bra sizes range from XS to XL. These letter sizes correspond to specific ranges of cup sizes and band sizes. If your band size is 30, and your cup range is A through DD, then your size is XS. If your band size is 32, and your cup size is A to B, then your size is also XS. If your band size is 32, and your cup size is C to E, then your size is S. Here are the remaining size break-downs:
- Size S: Band 34 Cup A to C
- Size M: Band 34 Cup D to E or Band 36 Cup A to C
- Size L: Band 36 Cup D to E or Band 38 Cup A to C
- Size XL: Band 38 Cup D to E
- Narrow down your choices by the support level you need for your low-, medium-, or high-impact activity.
