Pelvic floor dysfunction is incredibly common, affecting 1 in 3 women. It’s rarely talked about, but it can put women off exercising as it means that taking part in high impact sports like running leads to leaks. This is because your deep core muscles are not able to withstand the added pressure on your body, leading to stress incontinence.
The following factors cause an increased risk of pelvic dysfunction:
- Chronic back pain
- Injury or radiotherapy to the pelvis
- Chronic coughing or sneezing
- Heavy weightlifting
So essentially every woman is at risk!
What’s so special about EVB Sports?
EVB shorts were invented by engineer, marathon runner and 3-time mum Yvonne. While on a training run after having her third child, Yvonne was horrified to find that she was unable to keep from wetting herself. After doing some research she realised just how common incontinence is among women and how many suffer in silence.
As a passionate athlete, Yvonne wanted to help other women to continue exercising without feeling self-conscious. She found that the support wear available was frumpy and unappealing so she used her engineering knowledge to create her own.
Years of research into the effect of pelvic dysfunction on women’s participation in sport led to the creation of EVB Sport. This was done in collaboration with leading physiotherapists and designers, to create sportswear that is wonderfully supportive while also being stylish and comfortable. Tests found that 71% of women wearing EVB had a reduction in stress to pelvic floor muscles, with 100% of them reporting an increase in confidence and support.
