These Are the Best Sports Bras, According to the Fittest Women We Know

A sports bra is the cornerstone of every gym kit. You want something that offers ample support without rendering you stiff and unable to stretch your arms. You're also after something that can handle being washed often and doesn't mind spending days rattling around your bag with your less-than-gentle trainers.

And while it isn't always the top priority over functionality, we all want something that actually looks good too, even if we're not fans of gym selfies. Like all new investments, it's best to seek peer recs when shopping for a new sports bra. And that's exactly what we've done. We've called upon the fittest women we know—from marathon runners to HIIT addicts—to tell us about the sports bras they rely on.
