I just stumbled across a very interesting post on Well+Good this morning about “fashion-forward” sports bras. Especially as a woman who is a bit top-heavy, I always vacillate about whether my sports bras can be both fashionable and functional. I mean, I love looking cute at the gym, but I also need support! Here are my quick thoughts on some of the sports bras featured on Well+Good- check them out & then tell me, what matters in your sports bra: fashion, function or both?
This bra is for high impact workouts and is made with moisture wicking fabric. I’m suspicious of any sports bras that have a criss-cross v-neck cut- what about when you’re doing plyometrics?
This So Low bra looks super cute- but it’s padded! Do you wear padded sports bras? I don’t get the point of padding the bra you’re working out in…open to comments! I’d love this bra to wear as an everyday (without the padding) but for working out, the padding makes it just so-so.
Now here is a bra that’s more my speed! Loving the colors but also that my girls would be completely covered in this one- so no worries about peek-a-boob moments at the gym! My one critique- not in love with the zipper/buttons on the front. I had a bra with this same detailing and it gave me uni-boob!
I could definitely get down with this bra, though I think that this may be on the less fashionable end of the spectrum. Check out the rest of the bras here! -CFC
