Motivation to get you through hump day!
It might seem insignificant but a sports bra can greatly affect your workout. If it doesn’t fit or support right, you can end up focusing more on the nuisance than your workout or worse, you can be tempted to stop your exercise short just to run home and take it off! I once owned a well-known athletic brand’s sports bra that fit so poorly it nearly cut off the circulation under my arms and it was all I could do to finish my workout. From then on, I made sure I tried on sports bras before buying to ensure the fit was comfortable and supportive. The good news is I’ve discovered some great options along the way, including some very affordable ones! See below for some of my favorites.
- C9 Champion sports bra: this brand’s Target collection offers some stylish and affordable options, including some of my favorite sports bras.
- Free To Be Zen bra: this Lululemon bra runs small, but it offers great support. The back straps also make for a stylish detail that looks great peeking out of any top.
- Athena Crop: I’ve written about my love of Outdoor Voices activewear before, so it’s no surprise they make the list again. Technically, this is a crop top but it also doubles as a bra or can be worn in place of a sports bra, which is a win-win. The cut is flattering, the technical fabric survives even the sweatiest of workouts and it comes in a variety of colors, making it a great option for so many workout outfits.
