Twitter has just revealed the truth about sports bras

It’s one of those things that we don’t typically complain about. But, once said aloud, we can’t help but bond in misery that is taking off your sports bra after working out. Whether it’s of the revolutionizing Sweaty Betty brand or a generic one, this particular brassiere feels more like a contraption when mixed with sweat. And we’re not over exaggerating.

A group of women got together to express their disdain for the undergarment on Twitter recently. And we have to say, we totally understand where they’re all coming from.

Just when you thought your intense workout was complete, removing your sports bra becomes the true challenge.

And these women describe the experiences all too perfectly.

Taking off your sports bra after arm day really tests who you are as a person

So, there you have it! The worst part of working out, hands down, is the post-workout clothing removal. Arm day is a killer already. But, raising your arms after working out those guns is the last thing you want to do.

The sad part is that there’s no real solution for this. Especially since the alternative to the regular support is one with a plastic and super uncomfortable connector in the back. Ah, to be a woman.

Leave it to Twitter to highlight yet another thing women have to deal with. But, at least we know we’re in solidarity with our other fitness lady friends. And we can all laugh through the pain.
