Bra-shopping can be… complicated. Trying to decide on a comfortable, secure fit, when your weight may fluctuate adding a little more fill to your cup or you don’t know your correct cup size proves to have its challenges. And finding the right bra for your workout routine can be even more stressful — 80 percent of women are buying the wrong bra and 17% of women have skipped out on training because they couldn’t find a sports bra that supported them and made them feel confident in their bodies at the gym, especially for high-impact exercises.
But bra companies have heard us loud and clear. Long gone are the days where there are no options for the well-endowed ladies who want to get a workout in, or simply don’t have enough support to get it in the way we need to. Whether you’re doing HIIT, boxing, dance classes or running, here are a few of our most supportive picks.
