    Hi there, I do a UK blog about bras and lingerie for women an I found this post useful for an upcoming feature. I’d just like to add that the soft sports bra featured here is only good for very exercise – for anything more vigorous get a cupped bra with plenty of support!

    Keep it / them up 🙂
