Do you know this feeling? You're at the gym or out for a run, and your sports bra lets you down. Instead of providing support, it gives you uniboob. If you're tired of feeling like you're wearing a pancake on your chest and want to know how to avoid uniboob, read on.
What is Uniboob?
The term "uniboob" refers to the situation in which breasts are pushed together so tightly they appear as one. Women with smaller breasts may get away with it, but the rest of us can't. And it's not just about aesthetics—uniboob can actually be painful.
What causes Uniboob?
Your sports bra size and style are the two main culprits of uniboob. If your sports bra is too small, it will compress your breasts too much and cause them to appear as one or spill over the top. If your sports bra doesn't have separation like traditional bras, your girls will likely be pushed together, giving you uniboob. And if you are like me - proud owners of large breasts, uniboob is practically inevitable if you wear a traditional compression sports bra. That's why finding a sports bra that fits well and keeps your girls encapsulated is essential.
Uniboob health implications
Uniboob can actually be harmful to your health. No matter how big or small your breasts are, it is a fact that uniboob can create this dreaded look. But the problem is not limited to appearance. The fact about the uniboob is it can cause chaffing and irritation. If the breasts are pushed together, sweat becomes an issue. Also, yeast infections & rashes are a problem.
