When embarking on a new fitness routine you need support – in more ways than one.
A good sports bra is like having an additional spotter at the gym, ensuring your boobs aren’t bouncing around during your workout.
The consequence of an inadequate bra for exercise is discomfort and pain – the last things you need while trying to hit PBs – so shop around for the best one for you.
As January tends to be the month we all dust off our kits and get moving, we’ve rounded up the best sports bras out there to give you a helping hand.
Those with smaller breasts can usually get away with low impact options, but go for something with more compression if you take part in vigorous sports or have a larger cup size.
Focus on the activity you’ll be doing too – a yoga flow session won’t require the same support as a rugby match, for example – and how you prefer your day-to-day underwear to feel and look.
Once you’ve got the bra out of the way, you can get to focusing on your gains.
