How to Measure Yourself for a Sports Bra

The first step to finding the right sports bra is figuring out what size you need. And finding the right size takes some measuring. Visit us to meet with one of our highly trained and knowledgeable Outfitters to find the right bra for you, or use our guide below to measure yourself.

  1. Find your band size. Wrap a measuring tape around your back and above your bust line in the front. If you're in between inches, round down to the nearest whole inch. The measurement in inches is your band size.
  2. Measure your bust. Find your bust size by wrapping the tape measure around your back and across the fullest part of your bust. Round to the nearest inch.
  3. Figure out your cup size. After doing steps one and two, finding the right cup size for a sports bra takes a simple math equation: Bust size - band size = cup size. The difference between your bust size and band size (in inches) will be your cup size.

Levels of Sports Bra Support

When you dial up the intensity during a workout, you need a sports bra that will keep you in place. But you don't need the same support if you're kicked back on the couch for popcorn and a movie.

Sports bras are made with different levels of support for different bodies and different activities. The three levels of support are low-impact, medium-impact and high-impact. But those support levels are relative to breast size.

Sports bra support ratings are based on larger cup sizes. So, women who wear a C or D cup might find the impact levels accurate, but women who wear an A or B cup might be able to wear a medium- or low-impact sports bra for higher intensity activities, like running.

In general, low-impact sports bras are best for activities like yoga, walking or running errands. Medium-impact sports bras work well for cycling, hiking and weight lifting; and high-impact sports bras are best for running, high-intensity interval training and plyometrics.

Even high-intensity bras, though, don't work for some women with larger breasts. So companies like Enell designs sports bras to meet those demands. Enell sports bras are specifically designed for C cups and above.

No matter what level support you need, you can find a sports bra with the right level of support to keep you moving forward — not around.
