Model wearing sports bra
Some of the myths that are so often heard range from “exercising helps keeps your breast from drooping”, “there is no need to wear a sports bra during high impact activity” and the urban legend that “underwire bra’s cause breast cancer” which are all false!
Firstly, breasts consist of fat and glandular tissue, not muscle, which means they cannot be tightened or toned, like that of a buttock, however, if one should do chest related exercises, this can assist in strengthening the surrounding ligaments in the pectoral area which may help breasts look perkier.
Then there is the fact that when it comes to sporting activity that involves high intensity, it is advised that a supportive bra is used. A supportive bra reduces the stress placed on your breasts during your workout routine. High impact exercises cause the breasts to bounce, which will eventually cause damage to the connective tissues in your breasts, that is why Thomas always suggests that customers with a keen sense of high impact activity, purchase a supportive sports bra like that of their Anita Sports Bra. This particular bra fuses high-function details like no other sports bra. It offers complete stability supported by the X-shaped back which produces a less bounce effect while still being easy to wear and comfortable thanks to its ‘easy on and off’ features. Remember when doing high intensity exercise or even horse riding be sure to replace annually.

It was a Night of Gold with fine dining and guests dressed in their finest ensembles at the recent 50th anniversary celebration of Gelvenor Textiles at the Sibaya Casino.
Four years ago, eThekwini Municipality made a commitment to the development of the small business sector in the region which needed to embrace local fashion designers as well as the wider textile and clothing industry, of which they have since been an integral part. In the past, Durban was not only a respected design destination but also the mainstay of the textile and clothing sector in South Africa.
Companies such as Gelvenor Textiles had positioned themselves as trailblazers in their sector, internationally, and the sector was a repository of skills and technical know-how.
