LADIES ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SPORTS BRA.
That's statistical bullshit. What does that mean? If a woman runs a mile, it's like her breast has stretched 67.5 meters up and 67.5 meters down? How am I supposed to imagine that? What influences the tissue and ligaments is the vibration frequency and, to a lesser degree, the amplitude, if we want to talk tits tech.
So here's my remedy for all the girls out there - if you want to stay fit without stretching your tits 135 meters, go for a swim. Is better on your joints and back, too.
It's not statistical bullshit and it's not new either. The bottom line is, wear a sports bra during strenuous activity, and especially during high impact excercise, or you will get saggy breasts faster. I disagree with the "irreversable" part though. Modern science is a wonder. If mine get saggy (and they're huge, so you know they will) I'll have a breast lift. They'll look like they did when I was 19 again. Swimming is great, and I plan on starting it up again this year. My problem is this though, Howdo I prevent my traps from getting all bulky again. (I swim long distances.) If I even think about excercise I get muscular. The muscles lookk sexy everywhere else, but big traps on a woman does not look feminine to me. Oh, well. It's a small price to pay to reach my goal of being in the best possible shape. I want to start doing beginner triathlons next year. Ramble much? Yes I do.
i've dated a few swimmers, i find it builds the female form in a pretty attractive way. i am just more attracted to muscular women with some meat and curves
That's a great taste, you know the good things in life ;-) I've been a swimmer, in addition to various other water sports, and am quite happy with my figure. Glad my appartment complex has a roof pool.
Bronx Bombshell, with "statistical bullshit" I wasn't referring to the article in general, more to the issue of breasts bouncing 135 meters if you run a mile. There's just no sense in adding up amplitudes to determine anything.
You're in Gravity Denial!
My balls are gradually making their way to my knees - what the hell?
Ah, I gotcha Claire. Me aculpa.
less jogging maybe
If a woman has enough to become saggy in the long run, then she's a fool NOT to wear a sports bra. It freakin' HURTS and is PAINFUL when you do a lot of exercise with nothing to support your twins. Girls who are bouncing around out there and getting saggy, well..... there's something missing upstairs... unless they like sore boobies.
A partial taking back of what I said above concerning the 135 meters a woman's breasts bounce while she jogs a mile.
1 mi (statute) equals roughly 1600 meters. Calculating a step width of approximately 2.5 ft, that tells us the woman does
-------------- = 2200 steps,
0.75 m / st
assuming the step width decreases with time.
During each step, the breasts bounce upwards the length of an amplitude of a, and down the length of an amplitude of a, giving them a bounce of 2a per step. This tells us that
135 m .............2a ................................135 m
---------- = ----------- meaning 2a = ----------- = 0.06 m,
2200 st ...........1 st............................... 2200 st
meaning roughly an inch up and down. Possible, if you're a chesty gurl.
There's nothing like firsthand experience is there, dearie?
lol, true. Nothing like it. Don't forget the number of steps might actually be higher, which gives you a smaller amplitude.
Well, if you ever need a sherpa to run backwards in front of you and bear that exquisitely sculpted set of orbs gently in his hands, I volunteer. :shysmile:
And I have a larger than average amplitude. :tongue:
More than one inch, I'm sure!
Don't forget that I don't jog, I swim. So, if you want to don a snorkel or SCUBA gear and swim under me to support my puppy twins, feel free to do so.
But take care, I swim a mean speed.
I am also a PADI certified diver. I can help you! :biggrin1:
Well if you're a busty gal, I don't see how you could possibly be jogging very long without a proper sports bra any way. It's not really comfortable to be bouncing all over the place like that for 30-45+ minutes, forget the sagging factor down the road.
If you're busty, you tend to find ways to exercise that don't involve running! You also accept the fact that you're going to sag some, whether you like it or not. Gravity will have it's way! :sigh1: I exercise every day, but I don't jog! Who needs sore boobs?
Ok, I should have said... if you're a busty gal who enjoys jogging/running (which I do), how can you not be using some major support? :smile: I agree, though - sore boobs are no fun.
With all this information I may never run again!!
Actually as a busty girl who plays sports I've been wearing two sports bras. Seems to be working so far. they don't sag at all yet
hm. you may be onto something, miss katie. tomorrow I'm going to wear two jock straps on my run. I'll file a report.
