New LIZ sport line guarantees safety and comfort during exercise. Learn to choose the best for YOUR ACTIVITY 
By DANIELLE SANCHER

The wardrobe of a woman who practices physical activities will be incomplete without a good top. In addition to composing the look, the piece serves to protect the breasts during exercise. This is because the movement that the breasts perform during practice can distend the collagen fibers and break the Cooper ligaments that sustain the region, causing sagging.

Thinking about it, after four years of research, LIZ presents its line Sport, designed to support the breasts, small, medium or large, during the exercise, ensuring safety, comfort and well-being.”Using the right top is as important as choosing the right sneakers,” says Ligia Buonamici Costa, LIZ’s Director of Operations and Style.

What Science Says

Since 2005, the University of Portsmouth, England, has been analyzing in the laboratory several women with different sized breasts during physical and daily activities. The idea of ​​the studies is to capture data on which activities can increase sagging in the breasts, and the behavior of the breasts during each one.

Some discoveries are surprising. Running without the right support for the breasts, requires more strength in the legs, increasing the impact against the ground by up to 27%. Worse: this can raise the chances of an injury during exercise! Already the use of sports tops reduces in up to 55% the activity of the pectoral muscle – result directly linked to the preservation of the health of the sinuses, and of the legs.

One thing you know: during physical activity, the breasts move in a random and independent way.”The breast can rise to 21 centimeters during the exercise,” explains Ligia. High impact exercises, which include running or jumping, are the ones that most present this movement and those that are more likely to cause problems if the right top is not used.

New technology

With that in mind, LIZ Sport has its high point in three tops: for high, medium and low impact exercises.”The line focuses on breast protection, regardless of size. They all need protection,”says Ligia.

The new products focus on two construction techniques: compression and encapsulation.”Associates offer the necessary support to reduce breast movement by up to 78%, ensuring safety with comfort for exercising,” says Ligia. The result is obtained by the combined use of breathable fabrics, polyamide AMNI with elastane wire, LYCRA, with different levels of elasticity, intercalated or not with bulge, different reinforcements and seams. This unique support system from LIZ guarantees Their TOPS FIRMES of the Sport Line.

Another important detail is the wide straps and the Olympic court.”The correct distribution of pressure on the back and shoulders ensures that the woman is comfortable and does not feel any pain,” explains Ligia. Want to know more? Know the main characteristics of the new tops:
