Sports bras for women have revolutionized the way they exercise! Wide straps, broad cup coverage and compression and encapsulation to minimize breast bounce provide support and comfort during exercise. You can choose the sports bra that's best for your activity level – low impact, medium impact or high impact – and the style that’s right for you – encapsulation, compression, or a combination of both.
Key sports bra styles
There are several different styles of sports bras on the market and each have their own advantages. Learn more about them here so you can choose the right sports bra for your body type, personal preferences, and level of physical activity.
Compression sports bras keep breast motion to a minimum by pressing the breasts firmly to the chest. This sports bra style is best suited for women with small cup sizes, but there are styles available to support larger cup size women as well.
Encapsulation sports bras provide more shaping than compression sports bras and give you a more natural breast shape. This style is very popular among women with a C cup or larger because it is more comfortable for them. Each breast sits inside its own pocket rather than being compressed against the chest. Some encapsulation sports bras made for plus sizes may also include an underwire for even more support.
Combination (compression and encapsulation) sports bras give you the ultimate support and the minimum amount of breast bounce during movement. The combination sports bra is a great option for high impact exercise.
Women's Sports bras are offered in several styles, including front close, pullover, racerbacks, underwire, seamless bras, convertible straps and more. Racerback underwire sports bras are an extremely popular style that lots of women love. They feature quick-dry fabrics that wick away moisture, anti-microbial materials and ultra-light mesh and spacer foam. HerRoom carries dozens of styles for all sizes and impact levels.
