On the hunt for where to buy the best sports bras? I'm sharing my top choices after over a year of testing…….they'll change your LIFE!
Well the new year has arrived, and I have big plans for trying new workouts and exercise options. My goal this year? Not necessary to lose weight, but to make time for myself and my health. Before we moved, I was loving going to a new group fitness class twice a week (Orange Theory Fitness) and am still jogging a few days a week as well. Since we moved to San Diego, I've been mostly jogging or doing workout videos here at home. One of my favorite parts of adding to my exercise routine? Trying new workout gear. I swear, having great workout clothes makes a TOTAL difference in my motivation levels!
When I started this workout wear series last January (I talked about workout pants, even reviewed the famous Zella leggings to decide if they were worth the money)…….the idea of talking about sports bras never crossed my mind. They're all the same, right? WRONG WRONG WRONG. I had a ton of you message me over on Instagram stories asking about my favorites and wondering where to buy the best sports bras. And while I own a TON of sports bras…..there are a few that I grab again and again when I'm packing my gym bag. These particular sports bras offer great support, they're comfortable, wash well and won't break the bank. (Bonus, I even asked for advice from a larger busted friend….so I have a couple recommendations for you larger on top ladies too!) Since I originally wrote this post almost a year ago, I've tried a few more options so I wanted to update with my latest choices (which I've stuck with and which I've added to the list).
Where to Shop for Sports Bras
SHOP MY FAVORITE SPORTS BRAS:
Aerie Play Padded Sports Bra (size medium, on sale for $15): Who doesn't love Aerie? They make pieces that last well, have killer brand values, and always have great sale options. I own this Aerie sports bra in a ton of colors and it's great. This is a lower support version sports bra(I use it for yoga or barre, not necessarily for running).
Zella Body Wrap It Up Sports Bra (size medium, $39): I bought this recently after trying it on in person and falling in LOVE. It has built in cups, so pretty good support and I love how pretty it looks on. It's perfect for throwing a hoodie on top and wearing to a yoga class where you'll want to strip down a bit.
Looking for sports bras for a larger chest? You guys asked, so I did a little research. My friends who are a little more well-endowed than me? They recommended THIS sports bra from Lane Bryant, and THIS one from New Balance (which I just ordered to try for myself).
