High-impact sports bras are designed for activities that involve more bouncing—think jumping rope, sprinting and high-intensity interval training. But it’s not just up and down; breasts move in a figure-eight pattern when you run, so a bra needs to work for every direction.
These bras are made with more secure bands and wider straps to keep everything in place while you move.
Best for: Running, HIIT, plyometrics, horseback riding
When you’re on the move, you need a bra that can keep up.
These sports bra put you in control of your workouts by striking the sweet spot between high- and low-impact bras. Medium-impact sports bras are well suited for hiking, cycling, strength training and ellipticals.
Best for: Cycling, hiking, weight lifting
Yoga class? After-dinner walk? Kicked back in a coffee shop? These bras offer the perfect amount of support for your mellower days.
Best for: Yoga, walking, easy bike rides, pilates
