Good morning!

If you’re a long-time reader, you probably remember me writing about sports bras more than a few times over the years. I have a few tried-and-true favorites, but I’m always on the hunt for the next best one. I recently had the opportunity to chat with the bra team at Brooks about some new styles that were just released this summer (one of which I personally tried and reviewed below). They also offered a number of tips for picking the perfect sports bra since finding the right one is sometimes a little tricky, so I shared them with you guys below.

To celebrate the launch of the new sports bras from the Moving Comfort Collection at Brooks, I am giving away a sports bra of your choice to one lucky reader! Details below.

TIPS FOR PICKING THE RIGHT SPORTS BRA

TIPS FOR PICKING THE RIGHT SPORTS BRA

  1. Try on LOTS of different styles and sizes. You never know what you’ll like!
  2. Speaking of size, get professionally sized at a lingerie or department store before trying on sports bras, so you have a rough idea of where to start. Moving Comfort actually recommends getting professionally sized at least twice a year since women’s bodies tend to fluctuate so much.
  3. Related: Don’t get a specific style or size stuck in your head. All sports bras fit differently, so you might be a certain size in one brand, but a totally different size in another. Same goes with style. You might hate racerback styles in one brand, but love them in another. Basically, just keep an open mind about sizing and style.
  4. Know that the right fit is all about comfort. You want the sports bra to feel supportive, but comfortable at the same time. Your goal is to find the balance between the two.
  5. The bottom band of the sports bra provides a lot of your support. Think of it as the base of your sports bra. You want it feel secure, but comfy too. Pro tip: If you pull the sport bra’s straps off your shoulders, you should still feel really supported.
  6. Another pro tip that I found especially helpful: Look for a sports bra that makes you feel like you were missing something in your previous ones.
  7. Just like regular bras, sports bras have a shelf life. You shouldn’t be wearing ones from high school! Advice for making them last longer: Be sure to rotate wearing them, wash them inside a lingerie bag, and hang dry/avoid the dryer.

Anyday

I had the opportunity to test out the Anyday, which I quickly realized is the most versatile sports bra ever. It’s super comfy, so I often wear it as a lifestyle piece– around the house, walking Murphy, and running errands. It has a soft, snug band and supportive fit against the body, which reminds me a lot of my favorite t-shirt bras, especially its smooth, clean silhouette. But, at the same time, the Anyday easily transitions to the gym and performs well during my workouts. (I especially like it for CrossFit workouts.) It also has convertible straps for a customizable look, so I love wearing this sports bra with racerback tanks. It’s easily one of the most comfortable sport bras I own!

Frontrunner Racer

The Frontrunner Racer offers a sleek, seamless style that begs to be seen, offering lots of flattering shape. Its lightweight contoured cups enhance support and provide shape and modesty. The seamless knit provides soft, chafe-free comfort!

Embody

Are you a fuller-cupped woman who always has a difficult time finding a sports bra that fits? Embody is an underwire style with unparalleled comfort and control that allows you to feel more supported than ever before. This bra offers back-adjustable, bonded and padded straps that improve fit and enhance comfort. As if this bra wasn’t good enough, its sizing goes up to a G cup!

  1. I would like to try the Embody (I think). I have recently lost 70 pounds(and still going) so it is definitely time to upgrade my sports bra situation.

  2. I’d love to try to the just right racer bra. I actually have 3 Moving Comfort sports bras from last season but sadly they have discontinued that specific style. They have held up great and I am super happy with them. Hoping to find a new option to love!

  3. I would most like to win the JustRight Racer sports bra. It looks like a classic design but made really, really well which is appealing to me.

  4. Definitely the Embody – my ladies need all the support they can get so they stay out of my way! Liked/Shared on FB 🙂

  5. The Emody looks amazing being that I am larger up top. I have yet to find a sports bra that I really love. I have ordered some online recently and have returned them all. It would be nice to find one that I love so I can get a few and be done.

  6. I would really like to try the Frontrunner racer bra, I like that it doesn’t come up too high in the front. Since I wear a workout tank over my sportsbra, I would like to see how the lower cut bra fits.

  7. Tough call- so many look good. I think I like the rebound racer. At 18 weeks pregnant and still trying to run, I’m struggling with my normal sports bras! Also liked C&C website

  8. I usually wear Brooks Fiona bra I didnt knoe they had all these new bras!! Now that I looked I’m really curious about the Embody bra, im on thd bigger side and a runner, needing lots of support.

  9. Oh my gosh this is my dream come true! I’d love to win the Juno moving comfort! I just got one of these bras for the first time and for the first time feel support for my 34 DD when working out!!
