Strap in and stay supported with the best sports bras to shop

Don't let an unsupportive bra hold back your workout.

Nothing turns you off going to the gym like feeling uncomfortable and unsupported, which is why a good quality and well fitted sports bra is an essential when it comes to working out.

It’s easy to fall trap to wearing the same sports bra you’ve had for the past decade or picking up a basic option without considering the implications of an ill-fitting bra, and not all sports bras are made equal.

Especially if you are a lover of high-impact sports like running, tennis or boxing – it is important to support your breasts to reduce immediate pain and discomfort down the road.
