8 ‘Must-Know’ Bra Facts


Here at Lorna Jane we are celebrating International Bra Week!  What better way to mark the occasion than to learn a little more about your breast friend :) 


Considering that most of us wear a bra every day, it is amazing how little we generally know about our number 1 supporter. Don’t worry, we have your 8 ‘must-know’ facts right here!



Did you know… ?



 1: The sports bra did not exist before the mid 1970’s!


 2: The first version of a sports bra was designed using two jock straps in 1975.


 3: Approximately 80-85% of women wear the wrong size bra. (check out our sizing chart here)


 4: Your bra size can change an average of six times throughout your lifetime.

*No wonder we can get confused about what size we are!



 5: You need more than one quality sports bra so you can rotate them.

*This is to prolong their effectiveness by reducing wear and tear. It is ideal to make sure that you are wearing the right bra for the right activity. 



 6: The bounce is real! High impact activity tears breast tissue leading to damage.

*Sports bras are designed to reduce this impact and protect the tissue by providing the right level of support to minimise the ‘bounce’. Learn more about their design here!



 7: It’s all about the fabric. Moisture wicking fabric draws sweat away from your skin.

*Other fabrics can act like a sponge and soak it all up – eww!



 8: Every Lorna Jane bra bought in October contributes to the Breast Cancer Foundation!

*To support their amazing work and research, our goal is to donate $50,000. (shop here)
