Have you noticed how many girls in your school try to avoid sport when they hit puberty?

 

You might find that it is surprisingly high. Adolescence is a tricky time for girls. Self-consciousness, negative body image and low self-esteem are known to peak at this important time in a girl’s life. Breast development is the first outward sign of puberty and can lead to embarrassment, awkwardness and breast pain. It is a factor that is often overlooked and seldom talked about.

 

A new workshop available for schools aims to tackle these issues head on. Developed as a direct result of the research by the University of Portsmouth*, it aims to empower girls with knowledge to have a positive impact on their health and well-being.

 

The workshop is fun and interactive and can be custom-made to cover any or all of the following topics.

 

  • Debunking the myth of the “perfect breasts” by explaining the different size, shape and changes that occur.
  • Structure – what is the breast made up of? What are the supporting structures?
  • Guess the size and weight of different cup sizes.
  • Breast movement and the potential consequences. Exploring pain, sag, changes in movement and embarrassment .
  • Bra fit for everyday bras. Teaching good bra fit habits for life. Spot the error section.
  • Why wear a sports bra and the different types of sports bras.
  • How to assess if a sports bra will offer support – over 20 different styles and brands of sports bra for the girls to assess themselves.
