WOMEN'S SPORTS BRAS
Whether you're getting a quick workout in, taking a high-intensity exercise class, or eating a bag of chips like it’s a competition, Soma® sport bras are here to support your daily endeavors. Discover our range of sports bras that take support to the next level, complete with performance-enhancing fabrics and no-bounce constructions. The level of support that you’ll need is mainly determined by the type of activity you’ll be doing. Low-impact sports bras like the Seamless Bralette provide the lightest amount of support and a high degree of flexibility, making them perfect for low-intensity workouts like stretching and walking. For a little more compression, opt for a medium-impact sports bra like the Bliss Breathe™ Racerback Sports Bra that is better suited for more rigorous exercise, like hiking and Pilates thanks to recycled moisture wicking fabric. Finally, high-impact sports bras like the Wacoal Sport Underwire Sports Bra feature the strongest compression and support for all of your high-intensity workouts, from Zumba classes to running a 10K.
Our sports bras are designed to keep you cool and comfortable, no matter how hard you work out. Many of our athletic bras are made with recycled sweat-wicking materials, both inside and out. Special features include an anti-odor lining that absorbs moisture to keep you fresh and cool, and a wicking underband to prevent the dreaded under-breast sweat. We’ve carefully placed mesh panels on certain styles to serve both function and fashion; they create a light and airy construction, as well as a striking pattern.
FULL COVERAGE FOR SUPER-STRONG SUPPORT
Our sports bras come in a range of supportive silhouettes, depending on how intense your workouts/days are. Choose medium-impact athletic bras that offer support from double lining, wide adjustable straps, and individual cups. For all-out training, turn to our maximum hold designs. Our ergonomic silhouettes distribute weight with side supports and relief straps, and underwire bras provide a firm yet comfortable hold. Comfort is key: explore finer tailoring details that give even the most supportive bras their barely-there feel. For example, some have additional support bands to ensure the sports bra sits close to the body and curved edges along the underarms, allowing for a full range of motion.
Comfortable, supportive, and stylish, our sports bras are the ultimate trifecta. Fuss-free monochrome or skin-toned athletic bras are super versatile and vanish under any vest or exercise top. Several of these designs are elevated with subtle detailing, including contrast stitching and athletic-inspired piping and paneling along the edges and center. Choose from classic full coverage shapes, or if you prefer racerback styles, opt for bras that have convertible straps that won't be seen under your workout clothes. Those with deep V-necklines are virtually undetectable under low-front tanks, without compromising on hold or support.
WHICH SPORTS BRA SHOULD I CHOOSE?
With all the different styles of sports bras that Soma offers, choosing the right sports bra for you might seem like a challenge. However, it mainly comes down to your body type, level of physical activity, and personal preference of fit. A majority of sports bras on the market today fall into two categories: compression and encapsulation. Compression sports bras restrict movement by pressing the breasts firmly to the chest. It is most commonly seen in a pullover-style bra, and there aren’t any cups in the design. We recommend this style for women with smaller cup sizes; those with larger busts should look for styles with adjustable features for a better fit. In contrast, encapsulation sports bras use individually defined cups to support and cover each breast separately. This is most similar in style to your regular everyday bra, and is ideal for those with bigger chests.
If you want a little extra oomph, try a padded sports bra for a sleek, streamlined look under your athleticwear. Not only do the padded cups provide your desired shape, they can also limit bouncing and moving during high-impact activities. Another nifty feature on some of our sports bras is the zip-front closure. Sometimes, it feels like a workout in itself to get your sports bra off after a sweaty session at the yoga studio. A zip-front bra offers easy-on, easy-off convenience, and it also doubles as a sporty fashion detail. As an added bonus, you can partially unzip the front for more ventilation when needed.
