I don’t have a sports bra. I now realize it would be good to have one or two, this list can help me make a good choice.
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 almost 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. To move my body as a way to honor it and to care for my mental health. Before we moved, I was loving going to a new group fitness class twice a week (Orange Theory Fitness) and still jogging a few days a week as well. Since we moved to San Diego and have been at home this year, I've been mostly jogging or doing rides on our spin bike. 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 a couple years ago (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 or throwing on workout gear to head out to the garage for an at home ride. 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 two years 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 Real Me Strappy Back Sports Bra (size medium): 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 Live In Racerback Bra (size medium, $49): Yes, this is a pricier option. But if you're wondering where to buy sports bras that last? This Zella option is ideal. It has GREAT support, and I've owned a couple version of this model for over a year. They've lasted perfectly.
OLD NAVY HIGH SUPPORT ADJUSTABLE-STRAP SPORTS BRA (size 34B, on sale for $24): This sports bra was recommended to me SO MANY TIMES that I had to try it. It totally lived up to the hype. I love that it's more specifically fit for cup size. And the adjustable straps? KEY. You can really adjust this particular sports bra to get the ideal fit for YOU. And it's a total steal.
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).
