The historical development of sports bras?

- Oct 14, 2019-

Although the corset has been around for a hundred years since the ancient Roman period, there has not been much change in the basic shape. Ergonomics has also recently been widely used in the design and production of bras. On the whole, compared with other categories of clothing, the study of bras is lagging behind, and the standard of bras is not perfect.

The sports bra is developed on the basis of the bra, and basically inherits the structure and characteristics of the bra. In 1977, the earliest sports bras appeared, and American Hinder Miller stitched together two triangular bandages for body protection. At that time, it was just a simple bra, the purpose is to make the female breasts reduce the shaking as much as possible during exercise, reduce the impact of strenuous exercise on the breast, and at the same time absorb sweat at all times to keep the body surface dry.

With the development of science and technology, the maturity of ergonomics and the extensive development of world competitive sports, sports bras are very important for female athletes and sports enthusiasts. Sports bras are not only aesthetically pleasing but must also have certain functions to protect the health of women's breasts. In sports, clothing rubbing the nipple and causing damage to the nipple is also a problem for male athletes. In order to solve these problems, researchers and manufacturers from all over the world have launched research and development on sports bras.
