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
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.
Compression Sports Bra
This supportive sports bra was built for your long runs. With laser-cut straps you’ll be chafe-free and bounce-free no matter the mileage. Best for cup sizes C and D.
NB Power Bra
If you want to feel “locked in,” this is the sports bra for you. No matter the workout, your girls are going nowhere in this bra. With adjustable, gel-infused straps (any runner knows this is clutch!) and support at every angle, you can count on this bra for miles. Great for all cup sizes.
Juno Sports Bra
With increased ventilation in key sweat zones, front-adjustable straps that let you adjust on the run (woo!), and engineering to keep you firmly in place, this sports bra is a fan favorite among busty runners. Best for C cup and up.
Best for Crossfit
Crossfit Micro Sports Bra
Whether you’re lifting, climbing, or rowing, this low-impact sports bra will get you through your WOD. Best for A or B cups, this strappy bra is also great to pair with your athleisure gear.

Best for Yoga
