We love keeping fit and healthy. And, we love looking good while we do it. Luckily for us, sports wear is on trend and is much more fashion forward. From super luxe brands like Lucas Hugh, Charli Cohen and Hey Jo, we’re spoilt for choice. But all this choice can be confusing. Such as, what’s the best sports bra for you? Cross back, padded, soft cup – there are just so many to choose from. One thing ‘s for sure, the right sports bra needs to be a great multi-tasker; it needs to wick sweat, eliminate bounce and flatter your shape. No stress, we’ve done all the hard work for you. We’ve tracked down the best sports bras for some of your favourite workouts, so you can exercise in style.
Be a big HIIT
If there’s one activity you need a good bra for, it’s got to be HIIT. 10 burpees, 20 mountain climbers, 30 squats and 40 star jumps. All crammed into 60 short seconds, for a total of 20 minutes. Trust us when we say you’ll need the extra support. We recommend Sweaty Betty’s Resistance Workout bra. It’s expertly crafted for high intensity performance and comes in multiple colours you’ll love.
Run like the wind
If you’re a runner, you’ll know that running without the right bra is an uncomfortable experience. Go for Lululemon’s TaTa Tamer III. It does exactly what it says on the label. It gives great support and eliminates the bounce you might experience when running. We love that its thick straps can be adjusted to shoulder straps or racer-back too. It’s definitely a choice of function over style. But we can forgive that for its pro performance on the track.
Find your sports bra nirvana
Even if your workout is more chilled, wearing the right sports bra is just as essential. Yogis, we recommend Lucas Hugh’s core performance stretch sports bra. The streamlined, seamless bra has enough stretch to move with your body whilst maintaining support. The cross-back style has removable padded cups for shape and structure. It’s guaranteed to keep you looking sexy while you stretch into downward dog.
Be fit and fabulous, darling
Turn the treadmill into your runway with Charli Cohen’s Wham bra. It’s made for the fashionista. Its futuristic and bold design is softened with stunning perforated details. This is one bra that is sure to turn heads (for all the right reasons, of course).
Buying the right sports bra is essential to your fitness performance. It’ll keep you looking good and might even make working out slightly less painful (maybe).
