The speed at which women's breasts wobble when they run is being studied by scientists. Experts believe how fast they bounce may be the key to breast pain and could lead to a radical rethink in the way bras are designed. Sports scientist Dr Joanna Scurr, of the University of Portsmouth, attached sensors to the breasts of women who then ran on a treadmill. She said: "Little is understood about the causes of breast pain but studying how and why the breast moves is fundamental and speed could be a huge factor. By Mirror.

By Tanith Carey for the Daily Mail. Breasts have always been a source of fascination - for both men and women. And as a smart bra launches - which includes skin sensors to measure size, breathing and heart-rate - science is finally shining a light on their charms. From how breasts move to why you should wear a bra in the swimming pool, here's the surprising science behind your breasts - and how to keep them healthy and well-supported.
If you have breasts it's likely that a little bit of a jiggle as you walk is unavoidable but just how much bounce is normal? Lingerie brand Curvy Kate claim that actually the 'breast bounce' is much more manageable then we think and the women who struggle with it the most are probably wearing the wrong bra size. To prove this theory, the underwear experts have created a video showing the difference when wearing a supportive, snug fitting bra.
Monday 02 December UK News feed. Sports scientist Dr Joanna Scurr studied over women running on a treadmill with sensors attached to their breasts to measure how much they wobbled. She plotted the distance travelled by the breasts and calculated the speed at which they moved up and down, in and out and from side to side. She found damage to breast tissue is more likely to be caused by the speed at which they move during exercise rather than how much they move.
