Best Sports Bra | Finding the Most Comfortable Bra

Your boobs are calling out for the right bra! Whether you’re an A or E cup, without adequate support, gravity will take its toll. Stop the drop and ensure you’re wearing the right bra for your activity.

When exercising, whether it’s yoga, spin class or boxercise, with each stride, jump or pose, breasts move not only up and down but also side to side – tracing a butterfly pattern. Did you know that an unsupported A cup travels approximately 1.5 inches in each direction per stride, and a D cup bounces 2-3 inches?

Wearing a good sports bra can reduce that movement by up to 50% for all cup sizes, helping you make the most of your workout without the risk of black eyes. Jump squats won’t just be working your glutes and hamstrings, your breasts are made of soft tissue, held up by internal Cooper’s ligaments (a web of springy coils that act as a rebound) – don’t cause unnecessary damage, stay pert and invest in adequate structure to stop the drop.

What’s Your Bra Type?

There are two main types of sports bras, compression bras which look like super-tight crop tops and flatten your breasts against your chest, or encapsulation bras – they look much like your regular bra but made with a more breathable material. Generally, those with A-B cups or those performing low-impact sports should look to buy compression bras. For everyone and everything else, sports bras with in-built cups are favoured.

If you participate in numerous activities, it’s smart to equip yourself with several styles – ones with more support for high-impact exercise and less constrictive bras for those Zen days.

Low Impact

Whether it’s yoga, Pilates or barre you love doing, our Molten Sports Bra is a great low-impact bra for those less-intense workouts. With built-in moulded cups and an elasticated underband, this sports bra provides coverage and confidence from top of the Mountain to the bottom of the Tree.

Featuring cross-over straps, the Molten bra is simple and snug – keeping you in check throughout your workout. The keyhole mesh back detail allows your skin to breathe, allowing you to keep focused on your pose. Don’t forget the statement print – it’s time to truly shine.

Medium Impact

For many women, finding a sports bra which offers sturdy support throughout medium-impact sports like cycling, dance and cardio classes is like finding the Holy Grail. For anyone who has ever felt like getting in and out of a sports bra is akin to escaping from a straitjacket – Seamless is the answer.

Bringing support, style and comfort to the table, Seamless has got your back, literally. Designed with intertwined back detail with textured contour areas, it’s time to step up your studio style. 

High Impact

Because the only bounce you want is in your step. When the CrossFit wod is high-impact – double unders, running and box jumps, wearing a super-supportive sports bra is key.

Make sure a good quality sports bra is the first item you chuck in your gym bag. Our Classic Heartbeat Sports Bra is designed to support your assets with built-in moulded cups, a mesh back and an elasticated waistband, ensuring no spillage! Get active, stay supported and look stylish during all workouts.
