8 of the best… bras for running
Running the one thing keeping you sane? Just for you we've rounded up (er, excuse the pun) the best high support running bras - all perfect for your daily exercise hit.
Lockdown has left us all running for the hills (and back again, in time for tea). And with that comes the realisation that the old sports bra you’ve been wearing since before you had kids looks like (and is about as effective as) a saggy old bag. So here’s our pick of the best high impact bras to invest in…
LULULEMON RUN TIMES BRA
Going for a run? Keep your mind on your stride in this sleek bra that gives you support, separation and coverage, with perforated panelling for airflow. Comes in Cassis, Lunar Rock or Black – Size B-E cup.
ADIDAS STRONGER FOR IT ITERATIONS BRA
For the eco-aware out there, this bra is made with recycled materials to save resources and avoid waste. The print is Stella McCartney-inspired (she collaborates with Adidas on loads of their sports gear designs).
SWEATY BETTY ULTRA RUN BRA
Want less jiggle while you wiggle? Say hello to this award-winning high support number from ever-stylish Sweaty Betty. Comes in black and loads of lovely colours from Liberated Pink to Beetle Blue.
RUNDERWEAR EASY-ON SUPPORT RUNNING BRA
This is the official bra of England Athletics, so we’re in good company here. This bra comes in two variations Original (for A-E cup) and Easy-On (for D-H cup). A good choice for those blessed with a bit more bounce.
VARLEY BASSETT BRA
If it’s high impact on the style stakes you’re after you’ll love this range of bras by Activewear brand Varley. The bold prints, like this Silver Cheetah number, blend London’s cosmopolitan vibe with LA’s lifestyle – no surprise given the brand has headquarters in both cities!
SHOCK ABSORBER ULTIMATE RUN BRA
Specifically for runners, this design reduces bounce by up to 78% (yup, apparently it’s lab tested) and it also comes in a Padded option – ideal for enhancing smaller cup sizes. Loving this latest Grey Coral colour, new for SS20.
BROOKS DARE CROSSBACK BRA
A pullover bra that’s not a racerback? You bet. This crossback bra combines sleek, streamlined style with the run-ready support of built-in molded cups that lift you up and hold you in (sizes AB-CD).
NIKE FE/NOM FLYKNIT BRA
Featuring the Flyknit technology Nike use in their running shoes with the price premium to match, a high-support bra with a barely-there feel you’ll love – but probably best suited best suited to A-C cups (you’ll have to convert your everyday bra size into Nike’s XS, S, M, L, XL sizing).
