Abstract

This study was designed to develop yoga sports bras by investigating women’s preferences in the sports bra types and garment pressures during yoga practice. The participants responded to a set of questionnaires, pertaining to satisfaction of the current sports bra types. In an experiment, five women evaluated garment pressures in five different types of sports bras during yoga practice. The result shows that compression sports bra type was the most favorable design feature. However, it was identified as the least comfortable type due to high garment pressure on the body. The greater garment pressure was identified at the shoulder straps, the bottom side seams, and the scapula. Skin irritation and feeling of discomfort from the garment pressure were reported from the experiment.
