I Jumped, I Ran, I Chaturanga-ed & Found the Best Sports Bras For Every Workout

Are your sports bras ready to go into retirement? It’s time to invest in these amazing ones. 

By Liz Kennedy

Let’s talk about bras for moment. Finding the perfect bra is pretty much the most annoying task on the planet, amirite? Finding the perfect sports bra? Even worse. There are so many to choose from, varying support levels, and different kinds for different workouts. And if you’ve ever worked out once in your life you know that all of the above are super important–otherwise you’ll just spend your whole workout adjusting yourself. 

So let me do you a solid and give you the rundown of the latest and greatest sports bras. Whether you’re downward dogging, training for a marathon, or hitting up HIIT, I’ve found (and tested them all on your behalf!) the perfect sports bras to get you through your toughest workouts. Now if only I could figure out how to gracefully get a sweaty sports bra off we’d be all set. 

Best for Running/High-Impact

Enlite Bra

Unlike a traditional sports bra, this bra has individual, built-in cups that give major support. It also has a unique crossback design–with a hook and eye closure–that equalizes weight distribution. This is the ultimate hold-you-in bra without cutting off your circulation like many high-impact sports bras do. Great for all cup sizes.
