Favorite Sports Bras for Running and Fitness.
Summer is sizzling! We’ve been having an unusual hot spell in New Hampshire with temperatures in the 90’s for days. The humidity is kicking the heat index well over 100. This has me stripping down to my sports bra for workouts whenever possible (#sportsbrasquad). When the temps rise I become a sweat machine and easily feel like I might overheat. There are so many great choices out there for sports bras these days. There are ones made for high impact exercise ranging to ones that are really more just for fashion and comfort. Over time I have come to find many that I like and then there are my 3 go-to’s that I just LOVE and can’t do without when working out and running.
Just for reference I am a 34C or a medium in most Sports Bras so what I love may not be your thing.
Skirt Sports Kelly Bra
I am a Skirt Sports Ambassador and have long been in love with their running skirts, now add to that the Skirt Sports Kelly Bra. This Bra comes in sizes for 32B-40DD. This sports bra has molded cups to give your girls the support that they need during those long training runs and while doing endless burpees, box jumps, and squats. I love the hidden compression which keeps everything where it should be. The Kelly sports bra has adjustable hook and eye closure to ensure the perfect fit and the straps are adjustable too. the straps can be worn criss-cross or open back. This bra is for high impact activities so get out on those trails or join that next boxing class at the gym and you will be ready to go.
Under Armour Eclipse Mid or High Sports Bra
The Under Armour Eclipse bra comes in both mid and high support depending on what you are looking for. I typically go for mid support as that’s what I need and love for comfort. this is a compression bra and I find the mid-support to be plenty supportive and also flattering. The fabric is soft, breathable, and I have never had any trouble with chafing. the straps cross in the back and are easily adjustable to give you a perfect fit. I run in this bra for long distances as well as to do Cross Fit and cycling and have found this to be one of my top choices in sports bras.
Lululemon Energy Bra
I love the straps on the Lululemon Energy sports bra. It is fun to wear under open back shirts but is also perfect for the gym. This is a medium support sports bra with removable cups. The signature Luxtreme fabric is soft. I have never had any issues with chafing with this bra. I mostly choose this bra for activities like CrossFit and yoga but it works well for running too. This is one of the Lululemon best sellers so it comes in a variety of colors, changing depending the season.
