The best bras are ones that lift and support your bust. But the best sports bras have to do all that and more. The good news is technology is improving all the time so you no longer have to hold your boobs during exercise. These are the new sports bra brands you need to know about.
From Oysho's yoga-specific styles to the eco-friendly options to make you feel ever better about working out, we've got an option for everyone.
The new sports bra brands to try
Oysho's yoga edit
Spanish brand Oysho.com (sister brand to Zara) is most known for its loungewear, swimwear and activewear. The latest collections are dropping in online, and this starts with the 'Comfortlux' edit to provide greater comfort for yogis. The collection has leggings which adapt to fit the body and cross-back bras to focus on unrestricted movement. The materials are all also quick drying and made from a high strength fabric. The strappy back bra (seen in the above Instagram pic) comes in black, grey, mauve and blue and you can get it for £22.99, here.
Boden's first activewear collection
We always love Boden for a staple dress or a perfect print to brighten up our wardrobes. Now, they're a go-to for activewear and loungewear, too. Dropping its first collection in August, the edit comprises of comfy joggers and chic hooded tops for relaxing and colour-block leggings and bras for exercising. Made for low impact sports, the 'Jessica' bra (seen above) is available in sizes 6-22 and also features removable padding in the cups. Shop the sleek green, navy and pink style for £40, here.
Silou's sustainable styles
London-born brand Silou is all about stylish activewear that is also sustainable, practical and wearable. You can shop its latest collections based on your chosen exercise, with all of its edits being made from recycled and recyclable materials. The 'Tara' bra (above) may be slightly more of a splurge but the luxury material is guaranteed to be moisture-wicking, body-shaping and made from non-toxic materials.
Tala's inclusive collections
Founded by fitness influencer Grace Beverley, Tala only launched in 2019 but created a mission to be 100% up-cycled. The activewear brand is 92% there with recycled and recyclable packaging, plantable tags (put them in peat and water and grow your own plants) and all its items are made from factory off-cuts and recycled plastic bottles. Not only this, the brand also has a strong focus on being inclusive, aiming to make products for sizes 4-20. Stand out in the 'Mina' neon yellow high compression sports bra, made for gym workouts. The statement style is created from up-cycled polyamide – breathable, anti-bacterial and has a four-way stretch.
Whether you're an avid gym goer, a yoga fan or like to go for a long run – these are the new activewear collections which will have your needs sorted. Sustainable, inclusive, supportive and stylish – these are the new collections worth shopping.
