Three women in sports bras
No matter your shape or size, a great sports bra is a must.

It is hard to believe the sports bra was only invented in 1977. 

Since then, it has become an essential wardrobe item for workouts, streetwear, casualwear and style. 

Sports bras are more than a workout must-have and are having their time in the street spotlight.  

Since 2020, the global sports bra market is worth more than a staggering $US43 billion. 


A recent study published in the Ergonomic journal found the best high-support sports bras have distinct cups with compression, underwire, adjustable across-the-back shoulder straps, cup padding, adjustable under-band and a low neck drop, hook and eye closure at the back of the band, and nylon as the principal material. 

The role of a sports bra is primarily to provide support and movement while carrying out daily activities or during intense workouts such as high-intensity training and running. 

With plenty of evidence to back up sports bras, studies have shown a correctly fitted sports bra can protect women from strain on breast structures and a reduction in breast discomfort associated with exercise. 

Not every modern sports bra ticks all the form, function and support boxes. 

Compression bras squash your breasts into the rib cage and it's important to shop for the right sports bras that will not squash the breasts against the chest wall, but instead, provide needed support for our day to day lives. 

With that in mind, we've gathered the top three sports bras that will do the job and protect your chest from unwanted movement, while remaining comfortable and fashionable. 

Under Armour - Infinity High Heather Sports Bra - $80.00

Under Armour collaborated with British breast health expert Dr Joanna Scurr, of the University of Portsmouth, to create liquid foam that is injected into the cup of this sports bra. 

The injected liquid padding is designed in a figure-8 pattern for a more aerodynamic fit and a much lighter feel which supports and mimics the natural movement of breasts. 

The bra delivers strategic support, tailored for high-support activities like running, court sports, field sports and aerobics.
