When selecting workout tops, it’s important to consider more than just whether it looks great on you. This is a garment where function plays a really key role….particularly for ladies with larger busts who want to bust a move whether that entails jogging or doing explosive plyometric moves. You gotta have the right amount of support! The fabric also can make a huge difference on the workout experience. Look for fabrics that allow your skin to breathe and vent heat. Thankfully active wear options abound for all our needs and preferences.
