And if you’re looking for an option that’ll fit your budget and get delivered ASAP, take a look at Amazon (thanks, Prime shipping!). Unsurprisingly, the giant retailer has a slew of sports bras—not to mention versatile black leggings—available from best-selling brands. These styles run the gamut from padded, high-impact-appropriate options to more minimalist, no-wire looks. There’s something for everyone, but first, it’s important to know what you’re looking for.
“There are a few factors that guide my decisions when I’m looking for a sports bra,” says Anjali Shah, trainer and coach at Aaarmy. As with sleep bras, seamless bras, and any other kind of style, really, Shah’s main consideration is fit. “It should not be so tight that it leaves marks, but it has to pass the ‘bounce’ test, where everything stays in place when I jump up and down. With all the high-impact workouts we do at Aarmy, passing the bounce test is a nonnegotiable.”
Nex up is function, Shah says: “Different workouts require different levels of support. So usually I’m buying with a certain type of activity in mind—boot camp requires more support, while Pilates less, for instance.” And lastly, fun: “What catches my eye in the store is a fun detail: a cute back, a subtle but interesting print, or a fun color. I spend so much time in my workout clothes, so having a fun detail makes it feel a little extra special and unique.”
Still confused by the sheer number of sports bras available on Amazon? Relatable. So we asked several top fitness trainers—i.e., people who basically live in their sports bras!—to tell us their favorite ones for any kind of activity. From strappy numbers for your next Spin class to seamless, ribbed designs for a slow yoga burn, these are the best sports bras on Amazon that athletes recommend adding to cart ASAP.
