I'm a 48 year old female runner. I am experiencing chaffing and
bleeding under my breasts on distances over 5 miles. I've tried many
different bra types and used vaseline, to no avail. HELP!
Hi Donna - I have talked to a lot of female runners - big and small breasted women, all of whom have at one time or another experienced chaffing and bleeding under their breasts. It turns out that the large breasted women have a greater incidence of this experience, and the solution they offered was in addition to the things you tried, they found that if they doubled up on their sports bra, wearing two rather than one...a hastle I know, but a temp. measure as you callous enough to prevent it, they were able to go back to a single bra after the tissue toughened up. I hope this helps!
