We can say with unwavering confidence that not all sports bras are created equal.
Finding ‘The One’ can feel like a marathon in and of itself. We don’t ask for much when it comes to one of the smallest garments in our wardrobe, just good support, sweat-friendly fabrics and a fit that doesn’t make panting feeling like we’re on the cusp of suffocation.
We’d truly love a bra that doesn’t require us to rearrange the cups after every single wash, but really, we’ll settle for the above.
Naturally, every woman’s perfect match comes down to a myriad of factors such as cup size and workout style – what we wear to pilates would never suffice for our morning run.
Below, we round up the best sports bras for every need.
