The Best Sports Bra For Every Boob Size

From size A to F.

Finding the perfect sports bra is no easy task (understatement of the year, I know). Some ride up, some dig into your shoulders. Others look cute in yoga class, then become disastrous during a run (painful bouncing boobs are a definite fail.)

Plus, it's mega-hard to tell if that sports bra that feels great in the fitting room will actually hold up during HIIT. (You can only do so many jumping jacks in a Nordstrom changing area.) That's why I asked Women's Health staffers and fitness trainers with different cup sizes—and different workout habits—for their tried-and-true picks.


For A-Cups: North Face Stow-N-Go Bra

WOMEN’S STOW-N-GO III BRA
The North Face thenorthface.com
$45.00

Best for: medium impact

"It’s super-simple, soft, easy to get on and off, and doesn’t chafe. I don’t need a ton of support since I have small boobs, but this one is just the right amount of coverage for me for running. Plus, it comes in cute patterns and offers even more support for bouncy HIIT workouts. I’d say this one is higher/medium impact." — Kristin Canning, health editor



For A-Cups: Alo Movement Sports Bra

Movement Sports Bra
ALO nordstrom.com
$72.00

Best for: low to medium impact

"I absolutely LOVE this bra. I wear it almost every day because it's so comfortable. Plus, I love the cute details on the back." Angela Gargano, certified personal trainer at Performix House


For B-Cups: Sweaty Betty Stamina Sports Bra

Stamina Sports Bra
sweatybetty.com
$50.00

Best for: medium or high impact

"I love this bra because it holds me in and there is no jiggling…they come in fun colors..they don’t dig and I am obsessed with all things seamless because it means no chaffing on a run." — Kristen Saladino, fashion director


For B-Cups: Thermal Lily Year Of Ours Sports Bra

Thermal Lily Bra
Year Of Ours yearofours.com
$35.00

Best for: low to medium impact

“This bra is ideal for new moms who have sensitivity from breastfeeding since it’s nice and soft. Plus it's cute, comfy, and great for any workout." Katrina Scott, personal trainer and Tone It Up Co-Founder


For B-Cups: Outdoor Voices Zip Bra

Outdoor Voices Zip Bra
Outdoor Voices outdoorvoices.com
$38.00

Best for: medium impact

"This comes in great colors, and the front zipper prevents that horrible 'wriggle out of sweaty sports bra' dance we all do in the changing room." — Aya Kanai, executive fashion director


For C-Cups: Reebok CrossFit Micro Bra

Reebok CROSSFIT Micro Bra, Solar Gold, 2XS
Reebok amazon.com
$28.85

Best for: low impact

"I like the bandeau style of this sports bra because it gives enough coverage to make me feel comfortable wearing it on its own with a pair of high-waisted leggings to classes like Pilates, yoga, or spin. Even though it's low-impact by design, I still feel like it offers a good amount of support." — Jordan Galloway, fitness director


For C-Cups Or D-Cups: Lululemon Energy Bra

Energy Bra
Lululemon lululemon.com
$52.00

Best for: medium impact

"I currently own this bra in three different colors. It's incredibly comfortable, and I love that it doesn't have a ton of extra padding. The crossback detail looks really cute under a low-back workout tank. And unlike some strappy sports bras, this one sits nicely and doesn't dig in to my shoulders or shift during a workout." — Kristine Thomason, fitness and wellness editor


For D-Cups: Brooks Juno Sports Bra

Juno Sports Bra
Brooks brooksrunning.com
$42.25

Best for: high impact

"I honestly never thought I could be a runner until I got this bra (the bouncing around was actually painful), but once I strapped myself into this thing, I immediately signed up for a 5K. I like that all the straps are easily adjustable so I can make it as secure as I need—they Velcro in the front, too, so you can adjust them mid-workout pretty easily." — Amanda Lucci, senior audience engagement editor


For DD-Cups: Champion Spot Comfort Full-Support Sport Bra

Sport Comfort Full Support Sports Bra
Champion amazon.com
$48.00
$27.52 (43% off)

Best for: medium or high impact

"I’ve tried sooooo many sports bras, and this is the only one that works for me. I have about five and rotate them–they seem to stand up really well. When you are my size, you have to have a clasp–you can’t pull anything over your head that is also strong enough to handle DD. You also have to have some padding in the shoulders (which this sports bra has) to prevent achy shoulders." — Laura McLaughlin, deputy managing editor


For F-Cups: Enell Sports Bra

High Impact Sports Bra
Enell amazon.com
$66.00

Best for: high impact

"The Enell sports bra is not sexy—just being honest here!—but it is literally the only sports bra that supports my 34F boobs through everything from high-intensity workouts to marathon training. Does it look cute with a racerback top? No. Does it look like something my grandma would wear? Yes. Do I care? Not one bit. I would rather wear a super-ugly sports bra that actually does its job than deal with pain—there is no reason for your boobs to be sore after a run—and sagging down the line." — Amanda Woerner, executive digital editor
