    Promising review: "Love this bra. It was everything I'd hoped it would be. I have struggled for a long time finding cheeper bras for support during high-impact sports and even doubling up didn't help. This is worth the price and love the fact that I don't have to adjust the velcro every time I put it on." —Teressa S.

    Get it from Shefit for $75 (available in sizes XS–6LUXE and four essential colors and two limited editions prints and colors).

    3. A lightweight sports bra with four-way stretch and a compression fit, just in case you want to work on those burpees, push-ups, and other upper-body moves sans discomfort., Amazon

    Promising review: "Fit true to size, a little snug in the band, but to be expected in a sports bra. It’s a beautiful material that feels luxe - breathes well when working out, too. Good support due to design for low to medium impact. I prefer it to some of my more expensive pieces at home." —L. Ballentine

    Get it from Amazon for $22.42+ (available in sizes XS–3X and four prints and colors).

    4. A simple and low-impact Dri-FIT Nike sports bra with the iconic swoosh in the center, which is sooo ~sporty-chic~.


    Promising review: "This bra is perfect for me. I measure at a 34B and the size small is extremely comfortable to the point of me wearing it casually, too. It doesn't feel tight or constricting, and I don't feel any pulling (where you feel that you need to constantly adjust your bra straps) that I sometimes experience with other racerback bras. I did not sweat heavily with this on, but this bra did provide me with enough support and kept me dry throughout my walks and stretching exercises. I like the basic design because you can wear it under any shirt (or without a shirt too)! I also like the removable padding feature. Overall, I would definitely recommend it for anyone in search of a light support sports bra!" –Mindy

    Get it from Nike for $26.97 (originally $35; available in sizes XS–2XL and in nine colors).

    5. A compression fit sports bra for days when you're crushing a HIIT workout or running like the wind outside. Buh-bye, bouncing!


    Promising review: "For all those well-endowed ladies out there, this is a great bra. It fits true-to-size and is just snug enough to keep the girls in check. For those of us with a little extra in the midsection as well, the bottom band doesn't ride up or roll up. It has a thicker bottom band which is perfect for staying in place. I have fewer issues getting it on and off than I do with VS sports bras. I also really like the thicker material and cut of the bra so that I don't have to worry about any spillage on the side or top and it keeps some of those back rolls in place too." –Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $18.24+ (available in sizes XS–2X and in two colors).

    6. A racerback sports bra with an eye-catching design and moisture-wicking tech, so you can look good and not worry about a sweat storm during your next studio class.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 4–14 and in four designs and colors).

    7. A high-impact sports bra, because it will keep you supported (and *very* comfortable) during your next cycling class or cardio session, especially if you have a bigger bust. A built-in bra and wide shoulder straps are a heavenly combo for jumps, squats, and other full-body movements.,

    Promising review: "First of all I never write reviews unless I really like the product. I didn’t realize I ordered the three pack and when it came I had to double check the price and it was a good buy, so I expected it to be horrible and cheap. Nope. This is the best sports bra I’ve ever purchased! The sizes are true and it gives me so much support! I’m big-chested and the medium is perfect." —Chelsey

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in nine multipack varieties).

    Promising review: "It is SO hard to find sports bras made for larger busts that are supportive enough. I run and do a lot of HIIT, and this sports bra is fantastic for keeping the girls in place during my workouts! Plus, it is very comfortable and made of a soft material. Highly recommend this sports bra." —Chilaquiles

    Get it from Amazon for $40.95+ (available in sizes 28A–40H and in 20 patterns and colors).

    Wire-free cups, a plush adjustable closure, *and* breathable material? Yes, comfort is possible during exercise.

    Promising review: "I have always worn minimizer underwire bras. The underwire really began to bother me. I looked for bras without underwire but the ones I tried I really disliked because they had an unflattering shape so I ended up returning them, until I found these bras. They are well-made, fit perfectly and have a natural shape instead of the 'pointed look.' After trying these bras I will never go back to underwires." –Maggie c

    Get it from Amazon for $34.29+ (available in sizes 34B–50I and in five colors).

    11. A strappy sports bra that shows off your beautiful bod and keeps your chest comfortable at the same time. Removable padding and contoured fabric will keep you secure while you're working up a sweat.


    Promising review: "I have tried so many different sports bras over the past ten years, and with every single one the band ended up being too tight around my rib cage ( I may be extra sensitive to pressure in that area, not sure.) These sports bras are FANTASTIC for me! I can wear them all day long and never feel any discomfort." —DesertHiker

    Get it from Amazon for $9.79+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 30 colors and prints).

    12. A sport-friendly bralette that looks and feels like a regular sports bra, minus a lot of underwire and hooks., Amazon

    Reviewers say this bralette is great for barre, yoga, or other light workouts.

    Promising review: "Obsessed with this sports bra/bralette. I ordered the grey and the cotton is SOOO soft and just incredibly comfortable. Enough support for yoga, walking, or lounging, but not enough for cardio or running. The material is softer than Calvin Klein underwear that I have gotten at other places." —mimikatherine

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and in 60 prints and colors).

    13. A Glamorise sports bra designed with fuller chest sizes in mind making it extra supportive while offering full coverage and breathability. Plus, it has over 16,000 five-star reviews!


    Promising review: "My search for a sports bra is finally over!! No longer do I have to stuff myself into three sports bras, crushing my bosom and my soul, to be able to get a good workout. My 36G bust is fully supported in this bra - it's comfortable, easy to put on, and cute! I especially like the panel that prevents too much cleavage, which has always been a problem for me. Now I can go to the gym without feeling self conscious. I'll definitely be purchasing more." –Samantha

    Promising review: “First time my boobs have ever felt real support in a GORGEOUS piece!!! I actually wore it for the rest of the day after yoga — sweaty and all. I friggin LOVE IT!” –Khairah 

    Get it from Adore Me for $24.95+ (prices vary for existing and first-time members; available in sizes XS–XL and in five colors).

    17. A high-impact Nike sports bra made from moisture-wicking fabric with cutout detailing and a color-block design, making it the ~coolest~ sports bra in your collection.


    Promising review: "My first impression of this bra is that it was high-quality, and frankly, high-tech. It has a sleek design. I felt like the hook-and-eye closure provided stronger mid-back support than some of my other bras. And speaking of support, I was really excited that the straps were adjustable. One of my big complaints with sports bras is when the shoulder straps can't be tightened to adjust support for more active workouts, or honestly just fit my body. Not a problem with this bra at all. I was surprised to find I could wear this bra all day with no problem. As a busy mom of two little ones, I'm often making a quick pivot from one thing to the next, meaning it's easier to stay in a sports bra all day if a workout is planned later. The bra provided structured support through a full day of work, errands, cardio, yoga - whatever I threw at it. And I wasn't itching to take it off by evening. Considering the comfort and support features, the bra is well worth its value." –Ishurtleff

    Get it from Nike for $75 (available in sizes XS–2XL and in five colors).

    You can buy this sports bra individually or in packs of three or four.

    Promising review: "I’ve been going to the gym more frequently (whoo!) and needed some sports bras for my cardio exercises. I love how the material is soft and comfortable. All too many times, the ones that I try are tight- to the point where it almost restricts my breathing and gets uncomfortable! If anything, the sports bra offers just the right amount of support. My breasts are held firmly in place even when I’m running!" —Kaylee Collins

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL in 22 varieties).

The support is incredible. I usually am a small but saw the size chart based on bra size and bought a medium. It fit perfectly. It looks super chic. I will definitely wear it lounging around the house, as well." –Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Okay where to start. This bra is incredible! The fit is snug, but offers support, so it's great for running/HIIT/pilates/yoga. I got black, which looks so so sleek. And honestly, this activewear makes me look so good it encourages me to work out. I never thought I'd see the day! I have a bad back so often sports bras compress and cause pain over time, but this bra is nothing but comfort comfort comfort and I can wear as a clothing piece as well as in my workouts. We love to see function and we love to feel hot wearing it! 10/10 on feeling like a babe wearing this." –Flo W.
