There are a few factors that can make or break your workout: forgetting your headphones, when an ear bud fizzes out mid-set or a cluster of grunting muscle heads crowd the weight rack. The clothes you exercise in can also majorly affect your performance. Maybe your leggings are too tight or too loose, your shoelaces keep coming undone, or arguably the most aggravating — you haven’t found the right sports bra for your boob size.
Obvious signs that your sports bra doesn’t fit right are if the band rises up when you move, the straps dig into your skin, you’re jiggling or sucked in so tight that yanking the damn thing off feels like mission impossible. Other indications are more subtle. For example, if you’ve owned the bra for over six months, it’s probably time for an upgrade. The material of the bra can raise an issue as well: something like cotton will absorb sweat and rub up against your skin, while nylon and polyester are sweat wicking, breathable materials that keep you feeling dry and cool no matter what your intensity level.
That all being said, when you’re shopping for sports bras there are a few things to consider, like your correct measurements, the types of activities you like to do (i.e. crossfit vs. yoga, crossfit and yoga), material, and special features (things like mesh paneling, adjustable or convertible straps, etc.). To help you narrow it down, we’ve rounded up a few of the best sports bras for every boob size.
