Women’s hockey is a popular sport acknowledged globally. In Australia, hockey is played at clubs, schools and indoor centres across the country. Hockey is a physically demanding sport and during the course of play, players accelerate, decelerate and change direction all whilst trying to hit, pass, stop/trap or dribble the ball. As a result, injuries can occur making hockey impact bra inserts a must have.
Some common forms of breast injuries for hockey players are:
1. Painful areas of bruising
2. Friction burns and itchy rashes
3. Breast haematoma
4. Lumps or nodules which are known as fat necrosis
Whilst some of these injuries are just painful or uncomfortable a breast haematoma can lead to some serious off field issues. These lumps can easily get confused with breast cancer and can lead to inverting nipples inside of the breast tissue. Hockey impact bra inserts are quickly becoming the norm for all levels of women’s sport to try and avoid such issues for women and young girls.
Our Boob Armour inserts are a custom designed to snugly encapsulate breasts of all sizes to ensure player comfort. They are made from a sturdy Polyethylene base that is designed to absorb impacts whilst remaining almost invisible under a jersey.
