How to Choose the Best Sports Bra for You
Finding a fitness bra can be tough.
We tested dozens of the newest ones to make sure they won’t dig in, rub you raw, or let you bounce (ouch).

Read on for five that get the job done:
Lululemon TaTa Tamer Bra, $58
Built like your everyday bra with molded cups (bye-bye, uniboob!), adjustable straps, and hook-and-eye back closure, this high-impact bra lifts, separates, and shapes, keeping even D-cups in check with-out squishing. It’s a bit pricey, but you can wear it to work as well as to work out.
ASICS Abby Bra, $42
Hop, skip, run — when you’re sporting this compression bra, you can do it all. The knitted mesh offers a firm fit that minimizes bounce and increases ventilation so you won’t overheat. And the cups are padded for a little extra size boost.
Most Sweat Resistant
UnderArmour Stability Bra, $40
We love how well this bra handles wetness. Not only does this stretchy nylon-blend fabric pull moisture away from the skin, but it also dries super-fast so you don’t chafe much. Our testers’ only wish: that the vertical seams that run along the cups didn’t show through a shirt.
Saucony Motion Sensor Bra, $45
Made of an incredibly soft polyester-and-spandex blend, this bra scores big in the comfort department. Plus, its stay-in-place crisscross straps won’t dig in to your skin. We’d buy multiples if it came in more than black or white.
Sizes: 32B and C; 34B–40DD
Moving Comfort Vixen Bra $36–$38
With this überfeminine bra, you may be tempted to wear it sans top. Simple details like bold colors, piping, and a V-neck give it style. Strange-but-true green bonus: its interior cups are made from recycled coffee grounds.
Sizes: A/B S–XL; C/D S–XL
