Best Light Support: Nike Indy Women's Light Support Sports Bra

sports bra

One of Nike’s best sports bra styles is the super light, incredibly comfortable Indy. The bra was designed for “when you feel like wearing nothing, but need a little something,” and comes in sizes up to 3X, so it’s ready to provide light support for a range of body types and builds.

The Indy is best put to use for light classes like yoga, but it’ll work for similarly low-impact classes like reformer and mat Pilates and barre (think: no plyo or bouncing). Its thin straps are adjustable, and a light layer of padding gives just enough support.

Best High Support: Lululemon Enlite Bra Weave High Support Sports Bra

Enlite Bra Weave

The Enlite Bra from lululemon came out in 2017 and the brand has been fine-tuning it ever since. The Weave version adds a bit of detail to the back, offering a rarely seen bit of strappy style to a high-impact, high-support bra.

With insanely smooth and stretchy fabric that feels like silk, breathable built-in cups (engineered to absorb shock and soften bounce), no wires, welded seams, and a hook-back closure, this bra is an absolute dream, particularly for fusion classes like power sculpt yoga or yoga HIIT. It comes in size 32B to 38DD and is truly the ultimate balance of security and nonrestrictive breathability.

Best for Small Chest: Alo Yoga Alosoft Lavish Sports Bra

Alosoft Lavish Bra

Alo Yoga is known for their seriously cool style, and the Alosoft Lavish bra is no exception. The longline bra can be worn under a tee or tank, or on its own with a matching pair of bike shorts or leggings. With ultra-thin straps, beautiful detailing on the back, super light coverage, a v-neck cut, removable light cups, and a band of ribbed material around the rib cage, it’s an ideal style for smaller cup sizes (though it’ll do the trick for bigger cups in lighter-impact yoga classes). It’s also made with the brand’s signature “alosoft” fabric, so it’s exceptionally smooth and comfortable.

Best to Wear As a Top: Beyond Yoga Beyond Yoga Spacedye Slim Racerback Cropped Tank

Sports bra

This longline sports bra-slash-cropped tank comes courtesy of Beyond Yoga, a brand so comfortable and well-made they’ve transcended the yoga community and infiltrated studios far and wide. With light support, a smidge of snug compression, and a built-in shelf, the Spacedye Slim Racerback Cropped Tank eliminates the need for a top on top of your sports bra.

The extra inches give a tad additional coverage while keeping your midriff cool (and adding some stylish flair), and they pair perfectly with high waisted leggings. Get it in a bold bright hue or a subtle neutral to match your favorite pair of yoga pants, and wear it as a matching set to Yin class or to your at-home Vinyasa practice.

Best for Large Chest: Outdoor Voices Doing Things Sports Bra

One of the best-rated sports bras across the internet is Outdoor Voices’ signature “Doing Things” bra. Women across the sizing map have sung its praises (including us) thanks to its unparalleled comfort and support. You’ll experience complete security when running, but it’s comfortable enough to wear to yoga as well when you want the additional coverage and stability. It comes in a classic sporty style that’ll go with all your other workout clothes. Whether you’re a 30D or a 40G, it’s likely you’ll find the perfect fit for any of your activities. 

Best for Everyday Wear: Avocado Willow Woodgrain Deep V Sports Bra

sports bra

It’s hard to describe Avocado’s signature fabric; they call it “Sensil,” which is a combination of “premium” nylon and spandex (and Lycra “sport technology fibers”) offering a “generous stretch and superior recovery.” Sensil also has patented cooling technology to wick moisture “three times faster than other fabrics,” meaning you won’t stay—or feel—sweaty.

This bra is super comfortable. It's smooth, cozy yet light, thick but not too thick, and snug in all the right places without restricting movement. No pads, no fuss, no straps to adjust, just a great light support bra that’ll take you from hot yoga to mediation to the grocery store to binge-streaming on the couch. An active life is all about balance, right?
