I've never heard of women getting this while wearing a sports bra!
I'd guess that your bra is not fitting you properly, although you say you wear the "right" sports bra. Have you been fitted for a bra by someone who knows what they are doing?
If all else fails, my OH uses wide micropore tape on his nipples. It comes off quite easily afterwards.
Oh, and by the way, it's CHAFING. Only one F.
Where is this idea that it has two effs coming from? It keeps popping up on the forum. Is it because chay-fing sounds all posh and noncy or something?
Wilkie - The spell checker recognises chaffing and chafing
It may well, but unless 1of10 is processing grain in her bra, her chafing is spelt with one. Spell checkers are why we can't spell any more.
Micropore is tape used for sticking bandages/surgical dressings to patients. I use two tiny scraps for running, and it works a treat. Get it at supermakets, chemists etc.
But chaffing has a totally different meaning, Richard.
Nothing to do with red sore skin, and more to do with codes and encryption.
It's defo the wrong size sports bra. I've had sore nipples from wearing the wrong one.
I only need bodyglide underneath them where the elastic sits on my ribcage.
LOL at Wilkie correcting spelling again......
It just rubs me the wrong way, LB(see what I did there?)
*passes Wilkie the Bodyglide*
We can't have you chaffing now can we?
If you take a standard waterproof elastoplast and cut out the middle dressing part, the ends are perfect as nipple protectors. They won't rub off and can be left on for more than one run (lifestyle permiting!)
