High-Impact Sports Bra
Ladies, the Enell Sports Bra is going to top our list as a great high-impact sports bra to help you lose weight or get fit. Oprah praised the Enell Sports Bra on her show, and our shoppers agree – it’s got 119 reviews with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating from our customers. This bra is great for high-impact activities, although as a compression-style sport bra, it does flatten your bust. Great for things like running, jogging, active sports and horseback riding, but may be less comfortable for low-impact activities due to the compression.
Low-Impact Sports Bra
The Freya Active Soft Cup Sports Bra is one of our top picks for medium and low-impact sports bra. Some women use the Freya Active Soft Cup Sports Bra for jogging, but many of our shoppers use it for low-impact exercise and find it quite comfortable. This is an encapsulation-style sports bra that doesn’t compress your bust the way the Enell Sports Bra does; it’s great for medium-impact activities, and low-impact exercises like yoga.
Soft Cup Sports Bra
Some ladies don’t like an underwire in their sports bra, so our pick for soft cup sports bra is the Goddess Sport Bra 5056. The Goddess Sport Bra features moisture-wicking fabrics, and is great for medium and low-impact activities. It’s very popular among our shoppers, with 65 reviews and a 4.5 out of 5 star rating. Women rate it as offering good support and comfortable, and while some women wear it when running, more rate it as a good bra for low-impact activities.
