Love it or hate it, exercising is something we should all do. And you’re not ready for a good sweat sesh without a sports bra.
Here’s a fact: all sports bras are not created equal. If your current go-to doesn’t offer support, keep you cool and/or dry super fast, it’s probably time you upgraded. We rounded up the best sports bras below that do all of that… and more (really!).
The Best Sports Bras
Highlights: Removable pads; body-wick fabric to keep you cool; ventilation panels and wide shoulder straps for a cool and comfortable fit; built for high and medium impact activity
“I’m a 38c and the large fit perfectly. I had to try them on as soon as they were delivered and I am very impressed with how well they fit. They have great coverage and seem to be good in terms of compression.
On a side note: make sure you check the mirror when you put it on. The pads tend to fold in half when you put it on. They stay in place after adjusted. Update: after a month, they are not stretching out. I do wash them on a regular basis and there haven’t been any issues” – Rebecca
Highlights: Cool comfort fabric wicks away sweat to keep you comfortable; chafe-resistant seamless construction; wire-free compression styling
“I don’t work out all that often, so I’d never spend a lot of money on a sports bra. I like that this one is by Hanes, a trusted, heritage brand, but also that it’s super affordable and holds everything in nice and tight so I feel supported even when I’m running.” – Jeanine
Highlights: Tailored for medium-impact activities; fixed performance foam pads provide extra coverage & support while still delivering breathability; silky performance fabric with staying power stretches without sacrificing support & dries ridiculously fast
“This is my go-to sports bra because it offers all the support I need at workout classes/at the gym, but it isn’t too tight where it’s uncomfortable.” – Hannah
Highlights: 4-way stretch; quick drying, moisture wicking fabric; removable bra pads; offers medium support
“My ideal sports bra is one that gives you support and doesn’t just squish everything flat and that is exactly why this one from Beyond Yoga has been my go-to.” – Alisha
Highlights: Low-impact sports bra is great for a variety of workouts; removable cups; perforated detailing at the back lends extra breathability
“Working out with a cute sports bra always makes it a little more fun, and the Joylab line from Target is perfect for that. I love the perforated detail on the back of this one (cute AND more airflow), and it has removable cups so you can wear it however you like.” – Morgan
Highlights: Triple layering for max support during medium-high impact activity; flat locked seaming for extra comfort; four-way stretch; UV protection; quick drying
“The best sports bra is from Good American’s actives line. It’s medium impact and I wear it to spin class. The razor back gives extra support.” – Justine
