Brooks Drive Interlace sports bras are made with breathable fabric, while Adidas by Stella McCartney’s Truepurpose bras are perfect for daily wear. There are other sports bras on the market, but we’ve picked out three of our favorites.
Under Armour’s HeatGear fabric
The Under Armour HeatGear fabric sports bra for running offers anti-microbial and moisture-wicking properties. It’s lightweight and can be worn over the head or under the arm. Its U-shape provides a nice amount of support. It may not be the most supportive option, but it still gives a comfortable feel. Weighing just four ounces, this bra is an excellent choice for runners who want support but don’t want to sacrifice comfort.
Brooks’ Drive Interlace sports bra
If you’re looking for a sports bra that is run-ready but also looks good, the Brooks’ new Drive Interlace sports bra for women has exactly what you need. This compression-style bra has extra-wide straps and quick-drying DriLayer(r) fabric to help keep your body cool during intense activity. It also features bonded seams to help keep the bra in place and reduce motion.
Adidas by Stella Mccartney Truepurpose sports bra
The adidas by Stella McCartney Truepurpose sports bra is made of recycled plastic and high-performance power mesh fabric for optimal breathability and moisture-wicking. It features an adjustable strap system and laser-cutouts to facilitate ventilation during intense workouts. Its clean, minimal design and minimalist feel make it perfect for everyday wear or a night out on the town. This sports bra is ideal for runners or other active women who are constantly on the go.
Under Armour’s UA Compression
Under Armour’s UA Compression runs sports bra is comfortable and features adjustable straps that can be tightened and loosened to fit any size. It does not have an underwire and offers surprising support. It has five rows of hook and eye closures and a front ventilation panel for extra ventilation. These features help prevent heat rash and sweat pooling. It is recommended for women with a cup size of A or B.
Hanes’ Cool DRI technology
This sport bra is wire-free and has a wide, cushioned strap. The back band is kept from riding up by two-way stretch fabric. The bra is available in band sizes 32 to 38 and cup sizes B to G. The bra offers high-impact support for B to D cups and medium-impact support for E to G cups. It has a 5 star rating in looks, making it a good option for women with smaller busts.
Hanes’ Energy Long Line Sports Bra
Eleni Dimou normally wears a size small, but tested Hanes’ Energy Long Line in a size 4. She found that the bra’s elastic band was quite tight, so she would recommend going up a size. The bra was close to perfect once she had it on, though. Weighing in at just under two pounds, Eleni said that it is comfortable and a nice choice for high-impact workouts.
