The Most Supportive Sports Bras for Running & At Home Workouts
For me, one of the most important factors of a good workout or run is feeling comfortable. I need to feel good from my shoes to my clothes to my bras without having to adjust my straps or worry about chafing. I also want to feel like “the girls” look good as well. In addition, if I am going to invest in a good sports bra, I want it to last. I’ve done my homework and narrowed down to these top 3.
Athleta Glory 2.0 Bra B-DD
This Athleta Glory 2.0 bra is my go to bra for running and home workouts. It offers high impact support with an underwire that gives a little lift and shape.What I love: medium coverage that looks good under tanks or shirts, adjustable cross back straps, lightly lined cups. This bra holds up well to machine washing.Available in black, white and light pink.
Another favorite that I reach for. This Brooks (Moving Comfort) Maia bra is traditional style with easy on and off hook and eye closure. Gel padded straps are adjustable and comfortable on my shoulders. It offers slight minimization while maintaining shape and support. I love it for running, cycling and at home strength workouts. Available in C-E sizes. Available in multiple colors and patterns. Brooks categorizes it as medium support but I would say high impact support-bounce free running! What I love? A little bit of a higher neckline allows you to bend over without showing too much cleavage.
For larger busted women, the Panache Underwire bra really offers maximum support while still maintaining shape. Lifts and shapes from all sides. Thick padded shoulder straps are comfortable and adjustable and can be converted to a racer back. Serious no bounce sports bra for maximum support and comfort. Available in multiple colors and patterns sizes up to GG.
Washing your sports bras
I suggest washing your sports bras in a lingerie bag in the washing machine and then air dry them. They will keep their shape and elasticity.
