    Promising review: "I’ve never seen such a beautiful sports bra!! The cut-out is so pretty and it fits me as expected. Now I’m even more motivated to go to the gym and show off my sports bra. I’d totally buy more in different colors." —Kiki

    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 $65 (available in sizes XS–6LUXE and five 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 / Via, 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. Reedy

    Get it from Amazon for $14.92+ (available in sizes XS–3X and six colors).

    4. A moisture-wicking sports bra designed to keep sweat stains out, so you can stay cool on your stationary bike or reformer machine. Plus, it goes with *almost* everything in your activewear wardrobe.


    Get it from Nike for $35 (available in sizes 1X–3X).

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


    Strappy, cross-back, and T-back styles are available in this sports bra, which is a plus for pairing with exercise tops.

    Promising review: "LOVE this sports bra!! It’s exactly what I’ve been searching for! The design, construction, and material are high quality and hold up well from wearing and washing. If you’re looking for a sports bra that actually supports and holds you in, but is also comfortable with plenty of stretch all around and is cute, this bra is for you!" —KrissyHRcop

    Get it from Amazon for $16.48+ (available in sizes XS-3X and eight styles).

    Promising review: "I wore this bra all day. I wore it to work and then to workout. This bra is so comfortable and looks great. I love this sports bra and I'm going to purchase other colors because it’s so worth it and better than the basic sports bras I bought in the past." —Shemeka

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and four 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 $9.98+ (available in sizes S–3XL and in 18 bra combinations in packs of two, three, four, or five).

    Promising review: "It is SO hard to find sports bras made for larger busts that are supportive enough.

Highly recommend this sports bra." —Chilaquiles

    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 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." —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $20.01+ (available in sizes 34C–50J and 10 colors).

    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 $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 17 colors).

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

    Amazon / Via

    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 $13.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and 39 colors).

This one is the best for support (jump, run, or just active 12+hr shifts) and long lasting comfort (no pinching after long hours of wear). I have this bra in all the colors because I now wear them daily." —Jennygabe

    Get it from Lane Bryant for $59.95+ (available in sizes 36C–48H).

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I was nervous about the phone pocket but it didn't bother me at all running with it! I have a Google Pixel 2 and it fit fine. I appreciate the removable padding in the bra and it fit as expected. If you're in between sizes, I'd go a size up." —Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95+ (available in sizes S–XL and four colors).

    15. An eco-friendly sports bra, so you can reduce your carbon footprint and still have a killer activewear wardrobe. Its fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles and helps you stay cool during all types of exercise.

    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 $9.88+ (available in sizes S–3XL in six colors).
