Top 5 Sports Bra Brands

Top 5 Sports Bra Brands

Belle Lingerie28 January 2022

It doesn’t matter if you are a regular runner or someone that is just starting out, you need the right kit for the intensity of running in hot weather, cold weather, long periods or short periods. The best way to help you do this is by identifying our favourite sports bra brands and why we love them for what they do best. This can be highly subjective as different brands excel in different areas, so there are no wrong brands for sports bras on Belle Lingerie, however some of them have a slight edge over the other for various reasons. So, today we will be going over our top 5 sports bra brands and what kind of people they would suit the most.

One thing that Sloggi is renowned for is the ability to consistently bring out lightweight, breathable and most importantly comfortable sports bras that we just can’t get enough of. A great example of this would be the Zero Feel range. Much like the name implies, Zero Feel bras are designed to focus mainly on comfort and everyday wear. This is thanks to features like being non-wired, softly padded, having wide sides and soft and durable fabric that will leave you wanting to wear it for hours. Since Sloggi sports bras are mostly low impact bras, they would be more suited to women with smaller breasts, as their ability to reduce bounce is minimal.

Berlei is great for its variety of different bras for specific body types and exercise intensity. Say you are an avid runner with a bigger figure but still want to feel secure and not like you are ever going to have any wardrobe malfunctions, then the full support high impact bras would be perfect for you, as they have breathable fabric that’s great for long workouts, plus underwired and cup side panels that help keep the breasts in place and give them support. If you want something for lesser impact exercise and a more natural fit, then opt for the Electrify seamless sports bra.

The thing that stands out most when it comes to Freya sports bras is the moulded cup style. By having this kind of cup, they provide amazing support regardless of what kind of exercise you are doing and also a great shape for your breasts, which is further improved by underwiring. It is also worth noting the unique, performance tank tops that they offer. This is designed for maximum coverage and has a smooth, stretchy and lightweight fabric that hugs your figure. This makes it suitable for pretty much any type of exercise.

Something that Panache does very well with its sports bras is its ability to superbly balance having reliable and practical bra styles that feel amazing to workout in, and consistently releasing stunning prints that make them stand out from other brands that offer a more low-key vibe. Two good examples of this are the stripe print underwired sports bra, for a look that just oozes style, and then there's the black/aqua underwired sports bra that focuses on a more subtle, yet premium-looking design. However, Panache does not create its sports bras to be merely pretty faces, it is especially excellent in providing bras with comfortable straps, breathable fabrics and utilises moulded cups and elasticated waistbands particularly well.

At the top of our list, we have the best of the best in the sports bra industry, Shock Absorber. It will never fail you when it comes down to support. Shock Absorber clearly puts heavy emphasis on bounce reduction, making it a must-have brand to add to your bra-drobe, for higher impact exercise, like long-distance running sessions, or intense cardio at the gym. But, Shock Absorber also caters for women of all body types and different types of exercise too. Its run sports bra range is essential for any woman that does frequent, running exercises. They are non-padded and non-wired, relying more on the elasticated waist for the stability of the breasts. The active sports bra is a popular option for medium-impact activities like dancing. These bras offer breathable fabric that significantly reduces moisture retention, and also includes adjustable straps to suit your body type.
