The Most Comfortable Sports Bras That Will Make You Actually Want to Work Out
Whatever workout you do, you're going to need a sports bra that's both supportive and comfortable. In my opinion, I think the greatest sports bras out there are the ones that you kind of forget that you're wearing them (aka they don't feel too tight, too loose, and they're like a second skin). You can get a good workout in, push yourself, twist your body in different ways, and do your thing. Sweat sessions can be challenging as-is, so why do you need the added stress of wearing something that is uncomfortable?
Not all sports bras are the same, though. There are sports bras for high-intensity workouts where you need extra support because you're jumping, running, and moving quickly. There are bras that are extra moisture-wicking. And some are better for lower-intensity classes like Barre or yoga.
The sports bras that are made for yoga can be softer and a little bit more comfortable than their high-impact counterparts. A lot of them are not as compressive and are a bit more breathable and non-restrictive, making them easier to move in for those tough, twisty poses in yoga. But they're still supportive enough for those challenging classes. I find that because these sports bras are extra comfy, I even wear them when I'm not working out and just lounging or running errands.
Below, we've listed some sports bra options for your next yoga class.
