Comfort is essential for any underwear that you plan to wear during intense workouts. You can shop a large selection of women’s underwear and bra styles designed for high-impact activities to find breathable designs that provide the right level of support. Learn more about some of the most lightweight, seamless and supportive options for underwear and bras to help you choose the best exercise gear.
Bras and underwear made of breathable materials that move with your body can be ideal for high-impact workouts. Pair your preferred style of ComfortStretch underwear with a lightweight bra that provides the level of support you need.
An adjustable sports bra made of lightweight material can stand up to high-impact exercise and provide comfortable coverage for a wide range of band and cup sizes. For minimizing compression, consider the full coverage Minimizer Bra, which can reduce your bust by two inches.
Adjustable bras can be the best option for intense workouts because you can get maximum support by adjusting the configuration and length of the straps. Both the Kinetic Adjustable sports bra and the 24/7® Unlined Minimizer Bra have straps that you can wear over the shoulders or across your back.
Many active women prefer to wear seamless undergarments. Exposed seams on bras or panties can rub against skin and cause chafing. Bras and underwear that do not have seams and are made to accommodate free movement can be the best styles to wear during intense exercise.
The Flex Seamless Racerback sports bra is a wireless style with knit zones and removable soft cups for support and shaping. Each size of this bra, ranging from Small to 3X, accommodates a range of cup and band sizes.
Another smoothing style to consider is the Second Skin bra. This unlined bra with a flexible underwire and double-layer cups provides more separation than many sports bra styles. The adjustable straps of the 24/7® Second Skin Unlined Bra allow for a perfect fit.
There are several factors to consider when selecting a bra style to wear during intense exercise. Based on your preferences, you may want a bra with a flexible underwire or a wireless style. No matter which bra design you choose, it is important to know your band and cup size to get the maximum amount of support.
Adjustable bras make it possible to tighten or loosen the straps for a better fit. If you still experience gaping cups after adjusting the straps, you might consider trying a sister size. Bra sister sizes include bras in the next band size up and cup size down or the next band size down and cup size up. For example, if you wear a 36C, your closest sister sizes are 34D and 38B.
Breathable underwear can keep you cool and dry as you work up a sweat. Bras that are made of similar materials can also provide high-impact support. Make sure any bra and underwear that you wear during intense workouts provides a comfortable fit.
