Whether you are an avid runner or you are just taking up running, you need the right kit to get the most out of your body. You may be looking for new sportswear to get you started or you may be wondering if you are wearing the right clothing for running. Either way, Belle lingerie is here to help. We sell more than just bras! Belle Lingerie has a wide range of sports bras to keep you feeling supported and looking stylish. Check out this blog for the best sports bras for running.

What are the best sports bras for running?

First of all, you need to know what features you are looking for in a good sports bra for running. There are lots of different sports bras out there but not all of them are ideal for running. Some sports bras will be better for low impact exercises like yoga or weightlifting. When running you need a sports bra that is first of all comfy. If it is rubbing, itching or painful, you won't be able to focus your full attention on the run. So make sure it fits well and feels nice to wear. Secondly, you need a good level of support. We suggest you look for high impact sports bras as this will give you a better hold and stronger structure. Your new running sports bra needs to significantly reduce boob bounce to keep you secure and prevent injury. If you have a fuller bust you will need high levels of support than if you have a small bust. Opting for an underwired sports bra or a sports bra the encapsulates each breast separately could be a good option for D+ cup sizes.

When running you are likely outside in all kinds of weather so you need to look for durable sports bras that are made to last. Look at the fabric content to see if it is made from performance material as the last thing you want is a soft, thin, cotton sports bra. You should also lookout for a sports bra with features that help you perform better. For example, moisture-wicking material and breathable fabric will help keep you cool and allow air to circulate. That means you won't feel as sweaty and chaffing is less likely. You should also look out for sports bras with racerbacks. This essentially means the straps are attached at the back which prevents them from slipping off your shoulders as you run. Racerbacks can also improve your posture when you run too!
