Here are Strong Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Wear a Sports Bra Under a Kurti All the Time [When Not Working Out]

  • Compression – You don’t want to compress your breasts all the time because they need some breathing space.
  • Fabric – The construction of sports bras and the fabric used are different from those of regular bras. So, opt for basic bras when you are not working out.
  • Excessive Heat – When lounging or running errands, you will need an everyday bra instead of a sports bra because it traps heat, making you sweat excessively.

Everyday casual bra

  • Limited Styles – Sports bras are often available in low, mid, and high-impact styles that do not match the style of your kurti. For example, you may not find sports bras with a plunging neckline to match your deep V-neck kurti (relatable?).
  • Why Wear a Sports Bra When You Have Other Options – When it comes to kurtis or other clothing styles, different types of bras work perfectly to offer you the style and silhouette you need. So, why wear a sports bra if you have other options available?

Final Words

According to lingerie experts, it is not recommended to wear sports bras under a kurti throughout the day. Occasionally, you can wear them based on the support you need, but why not look out for other options available?
