Not only does a bra that fits properly make you look fantastic under whatever clothes you decide to wear but it also helps to alleviate shoulder and back problems.

Keep in mind that sports bra, also sometimes called sports shelf bras are not just for sports enthusiasts. Sports bras are easier on the skin because of the material they are made of and also because of the wide straps. They also provide a smooth look under many tops. Look for a sports bra made of microfiber because this material allows the skin to breath and moves with the skin.
