Fitness: The Right Sports Bra for Every Impact Level

Fall is just around the corner, and we’re beginning to dream of cooler outdoor runs and the crisp feeling of a scarf-encircled post-yoga stroll. The coming change of seasons also encourages self-reflection. We’re reassessing our fitness goals and taking a discerning look at our workout wardrobe–what’s serving us and what leaves something to be desired. Stylist Kasey knows that big intentions require the proper foundation. She shows us the best sports bras for supporting any workout.

The Best Sports Bras: High Support

High Support

Supportive and shaping, Shefit’s Ultimate Sports Bra is the holy grail of workout bras. Designed to minimize bounce during high-impact workouts, it has a completely customizable fit with its adjustable under-bust band and straps. Add compressive capris to support your muscle function, a breezy top with flyaway sides for breathability, and a lightweight moisture-wicking zip-up for the ultimate summer-to-fall cardio uniform.

 

 

The Best Sports Bras: Medium Support

Medium Support

A high-neck style like the Cyberia Bra from Shape Active offers extra coverage and support for most cup sizes. For smaller busted ladies, it has plenty of support for any activity, including running and spin. Medium-to-larger busted ladies can wear this style for workouts like interval training or yoga, where less support is needed but extra coverage is a necessity. I love a head-to-toe black ensemble, but lately, I’ve been pushing myself to work a little color into my workout gear. It’s energizing!

 

 

The Best Sports Bras: Light Support

Light Support

Wear a built-in-bra option like Wear It To Heart’s Support Tank for low impact workouts like yoga or barre. A body-skimming fit is ideal for bendy movements and inversions, so everything stays in its place. Not necessarily headed to the gym? No problem! To me, modern casual style is all about what you feel great in, so go ahead and rock that athletic street style at brunch or running errands—really, wherever. A lightweight statement jacket with edgy mesh detailing really completes the look.
