Shopping for workout gear can be a fun, motivating experience or it can be a total drag– it completely depends on what you’re looking for. Sports bras are one of the more challenging pieces of workout gear–finding the right fit, the right amount of support, and a comfortable option makes us want to stay in bed and never exercise again. We’re giving you a headstart on shopping: here are our top choices for low, medium, and high impact sports bras.


Low Impact


For low impact activities, like yoga or stretching, you want a sports bra that’s breathable and comfy. Our favorite choice is the Saucony Curve Crusader ($45). The adjustable band and cups make it comfortable for everyone and the fabric is the most breathable we’ve found.

Other top picks? We love the versatility of Queenie Ke’s Women’s Light Support Cross Back Wirefree Pad Yoga Sports Bra ($9.99-$20.99)– it comes in 14 colors. We’re also huge fans of this low price!

We also love the Sports Bra Incredible from Victoria’s Secret ($24.99-$67.99)– the front zip is so convenient and cute! This bra has just enough support for a dance or yoga class.


Medium Impact


If you’re hitting the gym for weight training or going to your next SoulCycle class, you definitely want some support, but want a little more breathability than a high-impact, running sports bra. You’ll get the best of both worlds with Champion’s C9 Champion Women’s Sports Bra ($14.97).

If you’re looking for a bargain bra, Hanes Women’s Get Cozy Racerback Bra is the right pick. (Just $6.97) It comes in 8 styles and patterns, and offers plenty of support.

Another great medium impact option is the Natori Women’s Power Yogi Convertible Sports Bra ($68). This bra is crazy comfortable and offers enough support to get your through your next workout class.

High Impact


Finding the right high-impact sports bra is key. When you’re going on a run or at a CrossFit class, you want plenty of support and comfort. We love Under Armour’s Women’s Armour Eclipse High Impact Sports Bra ($28.59-$112.72). It proves plenty of support and the trendy, bandeau-like design is insanely comfortable.

A great full coverage option is the Women’s Full Figure No-Bounce Camisole Wirefree Sports Bra ($20.09-$65.32). It provides plenty of coverage and thick straps to keep everything in place (the no bounce doesn’t lie!)

Another great option for all the runners out there is Lululemon’s Ta Ta Tamer III ($57.99)– a full coverage bra with plenty of support and structure.


No matter what level of support you’re looking for, make sure you pick the right sports bra for your workout and then get out there and exercise! Let us know which bra is your favorite in the comments below!
