A racerback bra has straps that are anchored towards the center of the back and then angle over the shoulders in a vee shape. This style is often seen in sports bras because it allows for a great range of arm and shoulder movement. It's also a useful style under cut-away necklines and sleeveless tops. Some women find that racer backs are a great solution for preventing straps from slipping off their shoulder. This style can also add a little extra support to the back. They work on women of all sizes and women with larger breasts sometimes appreciate that extra back support.
Aside from sports bras, there are dozens of bras constructed with this type of back and straps. You'll find smooth tee-shirt bras with both full coverage and demi cups. If you like something lacy with a plunge neckline, there are even racerback bras in this style. Women who prefer wire-free stretchy bras are also in luck, with several brands to choose from. The racerback is named after swimsuits constructed in this style, where range of motion and a suit that stays firmly in place are essential. You'll want those same benefits in a sports bra, which is why this style is so universally popular.
