Underwearing Sports & Activewear Edition
Medium Impact
For lifting weights, power walking, skiing or inline skating, think support first. Also look for moisture wicking liners. For additional separation, choose an encapsulation style to minimize bounce.
High Impact
Running, aerobics, mountain biking, soccer or basketball demand high-tech sports bras. Look for ultra-soft, moisture wicking liners, and consider both encapsulation and compression.
Low Impact
Yes, you really do need a sports bra for low impact activities like bike touring, walking, pilates, yoga or golf. Light compression and moisture wicking help keep your mind in the game... and not on your bra.

Low Impact

- for activities like biking, walking, pilates and yoga.
Over:
Even though you can work up a sweat during low-impact exercise, sometimes you just need a light and easy piece to throw over work-out clothes--it can get chilly in health clubs and locker rooms. The Splendid Jersey Open Cardigan MJ54331 is just the right weight and looks great too.

Workout pants should be stretchy, soft and comfortable - and stylish would be a nice bonus. Champion's Semi-Fit Flare Pant 3919 fitts the bill on all counts.

Any exercise level calls for a basic, hard-working tee. The Splendid Jersey U-Neck Scoop Tee TMJ0770 is feathery light and cut just a bit wider and longer, making it ideal in the gym or on the trail. Try it in a variety of colors, too.

Light Impact Sports Bras
Under:
We've all tried to wriggle into sports bras--sometimes it seems like that's exercise enough. Not with Valmont Zip Front Sport Bra 1611 Designed for low-impact activity, this compression bra zips in front for easy on and off. Constructed of soft breathable fabric and molded cups for support and comfort.

The last thing you want under workout pants is bumps, bulges, and binding. Marie Jo Tom Short Panties 052-0823 are silky smooth and seamless to lay flat. The low rise keeps them where they belong under clothing but still provides good rear coverage.



Medium Impact

- for activities like lifting weights, power walking, skiing or inline skating.
Over:
UnderArmour is known for high-tech, high-performance athletic wear and the Under Armour UA Action Racer Back Tank 1001314 is no exception. The HeatGear feature transports moisture away to keep you dry. Thoughtfully styled with a racer back and room to move in the hips.

Indoors or outdoors, you'll want workout pants that are lightweight and comfortable. Under Armour UA Hype All Season Gear Pant 1204474 adds side pockets and a convenient back zipper pocket for keys, cash or whatever small things you need to carry.

Medium Impact Sports Bra
Under:
For medium-impact activities you'll want maximum support and Wacoal Sport Underwire Bra 855170 does the job. Molded underwire design and leotard back provide lots of support, while the unique adjustable straps ensure comfort and fit. Customers rave about the shaping too--a nice bonus.

Under lightweight pants, your best bet is something seamless and light, like Pure Lime's Seamless Hipster Panty 0057 The boyshort style has a great fit and stretch, with Tactel's high-performance wicking. These panties move with you without riding up or binding.


High Impact

- for activities like running, aerobics or mountain biking
Over:
High impact activities require hard-working performance gear. The New Balance Temp Tee WRT9118 wicks moisture and provides UV protection. The reflective side piping is an added safety feature, while the side seams create a flattering fit.

The Champion Double Dry Low Rise Workout Short 3874 is a great choice when you prefer shorts to long pants. The low-rise style flatters those hard-earned curves and moisture-wicking fabric will keep you cool and dry.

High Impact Sports Bras
Under
For impact-impact activities, a sports bra may be your most important piece of gear. The Anita Molded Sports Bra 5527 has several unique features for support and comfort. Molded cups are lined with French terry to eliminate chafing, while the construction offers maximum support. It's exceptionally quick-drying and breathable--comfortable even in the hottest conditions.

If you hadn't considered a thong for exercise, the DKNY Energy Seamless Thong 576046 may change your mind. The seamless, low-rise construction makes it a guaranteed no-show under shorts. And the flat elastic waistband and leg trim mean no digging or binding.
