Let these sports bras support your girls for both high- and low-impact activities.
Wed Dec 26 2012
Sports bras can be tricky to fit whether you’re an A or D cup. We rounded up our favorite looks for both plus-size and petite ladies, for low- and high-impact activities. From brands such as Panache and Adidas, you’re sure to find a style to keep your girls in check.
Best for D+ cups We love that lingerie company Panache solves the large-bust/smaller-band-size conundrum by offering sizes 28–44 A–K. The brand’s sports bra has individual breast molds, so you’ll never get the dreaded uniboob. It’s also said to reduce bouncing by 83 percent. Panache Maximum Control Ultimate underwire sports bra, $68, at barenecessities.com
Best for the A-cup crowd The soft nylon-and-spandex fabric blend prevents chafing, while the snug, stretchy fit gives those with smaller chests a ton of support. Athleta Sprint Seamless bra top, $48, at Athleta, 216 Columbus Ave at 70th St (212-787-5602) ● 1517 Third Ave at 86th St (212-249-2072) ● athleta.gap.com
Best plus-size option With wide, adjustable straps, this bra for the full figure (available in sizes up to 46F) stays put during any amount of exercising. Glamorise No Bounce sports bra cami, $34, at Lane Bryant, 380 Fulton St at Jay St, Downtown Brooklyn (718-855-8300)
