To add on to last week’s workout pants and shorts, I did some sports bras research. It is very important to wear the appropriate sports bra during specific workouts. So, in order to cover all bases you should buy a few diverse sports bras to wear during low, medium or high impact workouts. I have made the mistake of wearing high impact sports bras during my leisurely walks, and I was uncomfortable and felt slightly suffocated. It is important to have a specifically low impact sports bra in order to keep your breasts from bouncing all over the place, but you don’t need them as restrained when your walking as opposed to when you are kickboxing.

I found a great medium impact sports bra with a racer back. I prefer racer back sports bras because they are simple to put on and take off, unlike the sports bras you have to attach-- I like to put it on and head out. This particular Champion Shape T-Back Sports Bra has molded cups. So, you’ll be getting restrained, non-bouncy boobs that look good and evenly sized! This sports bra has awesome support; with a comfy silky smooth material and most importantly material that stays dry. According to the website where it’s sold, the Champion Shape T-Back is a high impact sports bra for ladies with size A and B cups, and for moderate impact exercises for ladies with C or D cups.

This second sports bra is a more serious than the first. Meaning, it is for very high impact exercises. The CW-X Firm Support Bra sits higher on the chest, giving breasts more support. The back strap crossing system gives it a very firm support of the chest and back simultaneously. I would definitely recommend this for avid runners, or a strenuous activity. This will keep the breasts supported and will push them down a bit in order to not keep anything from coming in between you and your high impact workout.

Lastly, the RRS Vitality Bra is perfect for that leisurely walk you take with your dog, or when you attend yoga classes. I even wear this type of sports bra during my day off because of its amazing comfort. This is a medium support bra that is very light weight in order to keep it extra comfortable and making it easy to maneuver in. This is a great sports bra to have. Although it is low impact, it does absorb moisture quickly, keeping you dry.
