Which sports bra is right for you?

We all know that a sports bra is a key part of every woman's workout wardrobe, but why are they so important, and crucially, how do we know which one to choose? From spinning to running, every kind of physical activity causes excessive movement of your bust, which can result in soreness and pain. Unlike everyday bras, sports bras are designed to provide extra support during exercise, with breathable designs to wick away sweat and regulate temperature. They're divided into three key categories: high impact, medium impact, and low impact, which means if you like a broad range of workouts, you may need more than one sports bra. Let us take through the three key sports bra categories, the types of fitness they're perfect for, and the key styles you need to know.

High impact bras:

High-impact bras are designed for the most energetic of workouts: think HIIT sessions, running and aerobic classes. With thicker straps, built-up wings and
compressive designs, these bras offer the most support,
holding the bust firmly in place to minimise
movement and bounce.


Styles you need to know:

DD+ Sports Bras:  If you're blessed with a larger bust, a high-impact DD+ sports bra is essential whatever your workout, designed to support the bust,
back and shoulders. 


Front-fasten bras: Trying to pull off your sports bra after a sweaty class is a workout in itself; hit the showers in a flash with our collection of front-fasten bras.

Medium impact bras:

A medium-impact bra combines the breathable fit of a low-impact bra with the added support of a high-impact bra, making it the perfect partner for most daily workouts, from spinning to strength training. It's a great choice for the gym,
with light compression and a snug fit.


Styles you need to know:

Padded bras: With padded cups for extra modesty, our padded sports bras
create a super-smooth silhouette under lightweight and tight-fitting tops.

 
Wired bras: With underwiring for an extra lift, a wired sports bra provides
all bust sizes with a little extra support - in the most
flattering way possible.

Low impact bras:

If you prefer your workouts on the slower side, a low-impact bra is just what you need. These bras are great for relaxing yoga and pilates classes, with lighter-weight designs finished with a huge array of stylish details from delicate
straps to wrap-front necklines.


Styles you need to know:

Bralettes: With a minimal silhouette and feminine features, a pretty bralette
will work perfectly with printed leggings and an off-the-shoulder top.

 

Crop top bras: Sports bras don't get any comfier than this; our crop top sports bras balance style and support, with a seamfree design that'll
work with everything.
