The sports bra is arguably the most important piece of apparel in most women’s running wardrobe. Like the rest of your running apparel, it’s all about proper fit and function with a dash of fashion. A poorly fitting bra can not only negatively affect your workout, it can even slow you down! According to Brooks Running: “when women wear a bra without enough support, women can lose up to 4cm of stride length due to poorly controlled breast movement — that’s an entire extra mile over the length of a marathon!”

So, what do women want from a sports bra? They want a bra that allows them to perform at their best, in whatever activity they are pursuing. They want comfort, support, coverage and options…does it come in another color? What women don’t want; chafing, straps that slide or bind, side boob and the need for a crowbar to get that sweaty bra off after a workout!
