What Is a High-Impact Sports Bra?

A high-impact sports bra is meant for activities that involve a lot of intense movements, like jumping or bouncing, that cause your breasts to move more. A sports bra classified as “high-impact” will help control excess movement better than a low-impact sports bra or medium-impact sports bra.

When to Wear a High-Impact Sports Bra

Comfort is key when choosing a sports bra. Some women can comfortably wear a low- or medium-impact model for high-impact activities, while other women need more support. In general, though, high-impact sports bras are best for sports and activities like:

  • Running
  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • CrossFit
  • High-intensity interval training (HIIT)
