Summer is here, which means it’s time to get outside and get active. Whether you’re a high-octane trail runner, beach volleyball enthusiast, or simply want to get out and enjoy the weather on a brisk stroll, you’re going to need the right sports bra to support you on the way. Finding the right style and fit for your body and activity is key to making sure that you keep moving and enjoy yourself. Here’s the breakdown on what you need to know to find the right style for you. And HerRoom has hundreds of selections to choose from to help you get started or keep you on the go.

Front Close
For easy on and off when you’re on the go, these front close sports bras come with snaps, hook and eye closure, zippers or the “slide and snap”. No more messy hair or tangled straps in your workout top.

Great for providing extra back support for full-busted or full-figure women or when wearing sleeveless workout top, these racerback sports bras have “V” shape straps centered in the back that prevent slipping of the shoulder straps.

Whether you’re wearing close fitting workout clothes or have sensitive skin, seamless sports bras are free of extra connectors that rub against your skin and keep your look smooth.

For the high intensity workout, these wireless sports bras and soft-cup sports bras feature compression styling that prevent shifting of breast tissue while you’re on the move or encapsulation designs that surround the breasts for added support.

Are you more comfortable with the underwire cup support of your everyday bra? These styles are made to support each breast individually, fitting you comfortably and following your natural shape. Check out this 2014 Undies winner, the Wacoal Sports Underwire Bra 855170.

Whatever your go-to activity, favorite workout outfit, or beautiful body type is, HerRoom has the style, fit and price to keep you supported so you can focus on your workout and enjoy the sunshine.
