A good-fitting sports bra minimizes the movement of the breasts. It wicks moisture away from the skin and allows a cooling flow of air. A bra should also minimize chafing and the straps should not dig into the shoulders. The band around the lower chest shouldn’t be too loose or too tight, and the garment’s fabric should be soft enough to not irritate the skin.
The first two things to consider when purchasing a sports bra are what activities you will be doing and your body type. How much perspiration an activity generates determines the amount of moisture management you will need in your bra. For indoor cycling the movement is a lot less than running, but more than workouts like yoga or pilates. Here are several Sports Bras that we like.
