Choosing a high impact sports bra doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Here are our top eight favourite sports bras right now
If anyone understands the sports bra struggle of finding an optimal fit, it is I, the unfortunate soul sized at 34F.
If you have a uniquely sized bust, like myself, there’s a high list of specifics that a sports bra must meet before it’s even considered for the virtual shopping cart.
Adjustable and wide straps, a hook-and-eye bustband, full coverage — the list goes on so long that, by the time I’ve narrowed down my options, I’m left with a flesh-coloured, Spanx contraption that even my nanny wouldn’t be caught dead in.
Alas, before you lose all hope of being athleisurely attractive, there are sports bras out there that actually provide adequate support while also making you feel confident and sexy.
Here are 8 glam sports bras that will support you like a best friend:
