Whether you’re a power walker, yogi, pilates master (or somewhere in between), we all need a little lift from a great sports bra when it comes to working out.
Sports bra design and innovation has come a long way since the first general exercise bra was developed by Lisa Lindahl and Polly Smith back in 1977, which consisted of two jockstraps sewn together. Now, with the help of modern technology and extensive research, these athletic essentials are no longer uncomfortable and unsupportive; they are functional, feminine and fashionable must-haves coveted by everyone from elite athletes to the athleisure crowd.
From innovative moisture-wicking fabrics with antimicrobial and odor-resistant properties to ultra-supportive yet lightweight support for every impact level, it’s hard to know where to start when it comes to choosing a sports bra. Combined with the vast options of colors, sizing, function, cut and design, narrowing down which brand and style is right for you can be an overwhelming task.
To help break down the best options for you, Brayola presents: The No-Sweat Guide to Sports Bras.
