Comfit was founded in 1995 by Natie Spangenberg, and has been dedicated to improving the life for women who underwent breast surgery, as well as for women who just wants a beautiful, but well-fitting bra. The business grew so vigorously that she had to move to larger premises within a year. The business branched into two divisions:
A working practice that fit and supply post-mastectomy patients with external breast prostheses and post-mastectomy bras, and is registered with most medical aids.
The other division is a retail lingerie store that caters specifically for the fuller figure, “big and beautiful” women and for women in general who have problems finding a well-fitting, comfortable bra that is also beautiful. We do not have sales personnel, we have trained corsetiers and we make the fitting experience enjoyable and uplifting! We stock Glamorise, Anita, Rosa Faia and Comfort, from sizes 30A to 56J.
About Your Breasts
Research at the University of Portsmouth in the UK has shown that the breast of a woman wearing an ordinary 36C bra while running on a treadmill, bounced 9 cm with every step, after one mile, each breast had travelled 143 meters. The breast of a woman wearing a G-cup bounced a whopping 14 cm with every step and traveled 230 meter over the mile! By wearing a good sports bra, this bounce factor was reduced by 74%.
So, to prevent your breast from jumping up and down like a yo-yo during sports activities, choose a sports bra that provides firm support under the breast and also comes quite high over the top of the breast. Choose a bra with firm wide straps, and this will also prevent painful indentation on your shoulders. So, whether you are just jogging or go wild horse-riding, you need to be well supported.
