Ask anyone who works out in sports bras, and be prepared for a short monologue about their favorite brand or a horror story about the one that snapped mid-sprint. People are passionate about sports bras because they’re arguably the most critical piece of our workout wardrobe. Let’s face it, we just can’t move without them; you know the dread that comes when you open your gym bag and realize you’ve forgotten your beloved sports bra. But, instead of holding on to the one you love for dear life, you should be refreshing your sports bra drawer with some degree of frequency. Otherwise, they stretch out and lose their shape and support. That’s where we come in.
We’ve done a little digging and come up with our favorite sports bras available now. Think high-support cult favorites and adorable strappy styles perfect for yoga. Our top picks include a classic racerback bra, a more compressive bra that will really hold you in, and a longline bra that can double as a cropped tank. We found great picks from activewear companies like Lululemon and more traditional intimates brands like ThirdLove and Knix. They’re comfortable, supportive, and cute; what more could you ask for? Now all you have to do is shop!
