In general, bra-shopping is no one’s favorite task at all, especially when you’re not sure which bras will be secure fit, and comfortable for you. Finding the right bra for your workout routine is stressful.
One study shows that 17% of women surveyed have skipped out their gym and training because they couldn’t find a sports bra that supported them and made them feel smart and confident in their bodies at the gym, especially for tough and high impact exercises. This soft copy is going to be awesome.
While you might go for a less padded, and a lighter sports bra for yoga or another low-impact workout, for an intense boot camp class, HIIT session, or long run, you’ll need a sports bra that is at least more heavy-duty. There’s no need to ever miss a workout again for being self-conscious about your sports bra! Here are our most supportive picks.
Athleta Glory 2.0 Bra
If you’re in the B to DD cup range, this is your go-to bra to take you anywhere from a 10-mile run to a boxing or cross-training class.
The underwire helps you to feel lifted, and you can feel secure with the hook-and-eye closure, which also allows you to adjust the bra based on your exact band size and comfort level. Also, the racerback straps won’t pop out from underneath your lovely workout tank.
Wacoal Women’s Underwire Sport Bra
This is one of our top picks for women with larger bust sizes, and it’s our top pick among high-impact sports bras, too. The sizes go up to 40H, and in the G and H sizes, there’s an additional sling inside for more support.
No matter what size you go with, there are six different slots for adjusting the no-chafe shoulder strap, so the bra will feel comfy and move along with you.
Under Armour Women’s High Impact Front Zip Sports Bra
If you want to feel like you’re wearing a light bandeau while you’re wearing a super supportive bra, this one is your best option.
The zippered front contours to your body to keep your breasts in place and prevent uncomfortable bouncing during high-intensity training. It also has UnderArmour’s signature SpeedForm mesh lining, so your skin can breathe the whole time you’re at the gym.
High Impact Convertible Sports Bra
The fabric of this sports bra feels thick and supportive (the inside is double-lined), but it is made of microfiber, so it’ll feel soft on your skin. Its cups give you a full-coverage — even women up to 40H size will never have to worry about the spillage of straps. And to fit this bra under any style of workout top, you can hook the straps together and make them a racerback.
Cham This bra is equipped with mesh paneling in the front to cut down on dreaded boob sweat. It’s adjustable, gel-filled straps are meant to cushion your shoulders and not dig into them, which is ideal for women with larger chests.
The super-smooth interior and exterior will feel comfortable and be inconspicuous under your workout clothes, too.
Panache Sports Underwire Sports Bra
The built-in J-hook in this bra makes it easy to convert it into a racerback style. It is designed with underwire and molded cups just like a regular bra, which is great for avoiding the boob sweat from gathering in uncomfortable places of uni-boob.
