Sports Bras for Extra Support While You Work Out

Why settle for a good sports bra when you could have a great sports bra? The right bra can make all the difference when it comes to getting the most from your workout. In fact, just about every activity that requires more than a little physical exertion is more enjoyable in a sports bra that keeps your breasts exactly where they should be. Here at Bare Necessities, we have the best sports bras that won't hold you back from achieving your personal best.

Advantages of Different Sports Bra Styles

Boost your workout with sports bras built to support you during whatever workout gets you going. Whether it’s yoga, cardio, Zumba or kickboxing, the versatile high impact sports bras we carry are all up to the challenge. Underwire sports bras, racerback sports bras and padded sports bras have their fans; each style supports you in a way no regular bra can, whatever the impact level.

Like any bra, sports bras can be wire-free or contain an underwire. There are advantages to both styles, but considering your body shape and preferred exercise can help you choose the right option for your workout wardrobe. Sports bras with underwire are usually what's known as encapsulation bras. These bras have individual cups that separate the breasts and lift breasts up, which can relieve pressure on your back and shoulders. They're different from compression bras, which support the breasts by holding them against the body. Read the product descriptions carefully to make sure your preferred bra has the features that matter to you.

Your bra's fabric also impacts your comfort level. Sports bras are always made from moisture-wicking materials, but natural fibers don't carry sweat away as well as synthetic options can. Soft cotton will serve you well during light workouts, but if you're pushing your body to the limit consider polyester or polypropylene. Don't forget the importance of fabric when it comes to your underwear! Explore our top picks for the best underwear for working out.

If you need extra support for high-impact workouts, you'll love a racerback. Tank top straps are highly customizable, so you can create the perfect fit every time. Criss-cross straps are the least supportive, but since you can easily conceal them, they're great for transitioning out of the gym.
