Lacrosse Impact Bra Inserts

Why is lacrosse impact bra inserts essential in today's game?

Lacrosse has a proud history dating back to 1876 with a small but dedicated fan base and community in Australia. During contact sports like women’s lacrosse the breasts can be injured during collisions with legs, arms, sticks, balls and other body parts.

In fact injuries are even more prevalent in women’s lacrosse due to a number of factors, one being that women wear less protective equipment. The general sentiment is that impacts are not as powerful in women’s lacrosse hence less padding is required. As more and more studies are coming out on the impact to women’s bodies this sentiment is changing, especially around breast damage.

Some common forms of breast injury in women’s lacrosse:

1. Painful breast bruising

2. Friction burns that can lead to uncomfortable rashes

3. Breast haematoma resulting in swelling and pain

4. The formation of lumps also known as fat necrosis 

These injuries build a strong case for lacrosse impact bra inserts and many women’s sports associations are looking into mandating such equipment at all levels of play.
