Sau­cony Sky­rocket $40

Low to medium sup­port XXS to XL Ca­lypso Co­ral, White, Black

For run­ners who want some­thing af­ford­able, don’t need a lot of sup­port and are happy with an un­struc­tured bra, the Sky­rocket is per­fect. This high-necked racer­back bra from Sau­cony fits snugly and looks great on its own on warm days. The fab­ric is 89 per cent re­cy­cled polyester and 11 per cent span­dex, the an­timi­cro­bial fab­ric is “un­stink­able,” and you can wear it for the sweati­est runs with full con­fi­dence. Nice and sim­ple, with no fussy straps or gew­gaws, this is a no-non­sense run bra that gets the job done.

Puma

Ex­hale Stu­dio Bra $65

Low to medium sup­port XS to XL En­sign Blue, Af­ter Dark

For run­ners who don’t need a ton of sup­port, the Ex­hale Stu­dio Bra from Puma works beau­ti­fully – and the sus­tain­abil­ity story around it is another great rea­son to add it to your run­ning wardrobe this spring. Cre­ated in part­ner­ship with Bri­tish model Cara Delev­ingne, the Ex­hale uses less wa­ter in its pro­duc­tion and less dam­ag­ing chem­i­cals and dyes, and it’s made of re­cy­cled plas­tic bot­tles. The bra’s mesh in­serts in front and back will keep you cool, the wide, stretchy bot­tom band holds every­thing nicely in place while you fo­cus on your work­out, and the bra’s at­trac­tive and thought­ful de­sign will en­hance your con­fi­dence through­out the day.

Puma

4Keeps Graphic Bra $40

Low to medium sup­port XS to XL Black, White, Black Castle­rock Snake, White Castle­rock Snake

The 4Keeps is your clas­sic sports­bra, and the new colour­ways are so pretty, you’ll want to show it off. Plus it’s so af­ford­able, you can have two or three in your ro­ta­tion. The re­mov­able cups and stretchy bot­tom band pro­vide just the right amount of sup­port for all your ac­tiv­i­ties, from easy runs to bike rides and gym work­outs. The tra­di­tional racer­back de­sign makes it easy to whip on and off over your head, and the back is al­most all mesh, mean­ing you won’t over­heat.

Brooks

Dare V Neck Run Bra $60

Medium sup­port 30 to 40 A/B Ter­ra­cotta/Flu­oro Pink, Black, Blue Bolt/Saf­fron, He­liotrope/Ma­genta

This spring Brooks in­tro­duces three new mod­els into its Dare Run Bra line. The at­trac­tive and com­fort­able V Neck Run Bra has molded cups that lift and sep­a­rate for a se­cure and com­fort­able feel­ing while run­ning, and pro­vides good sup­port for A and B cup run­ners. It has a f lat­ter­ingly low neck­line, and it’s made of quick-dry­ing, sweat-wick­ing fab­ric, with per­fo­ra­tions on the straps and in front for max­i­mum breatha­bil­ity where you need it most. The free-cut edges and min­i­mal seams mean there’s lit­tle chance of chaf­ing. Like many of Brooks’s bras, the in­te­grated bot­tom band is part of the bra it­self, pro­vid­ing just the right amount of sup­port with­out be­ing con­fin­ing.

Brooks

Dare Scoop­back Bra $80

Medium sup­port

30 to 40 A/B, C/D, DD/E, F/FF Ter­ra­cotta, Flu­oro Pink, As­phalt, Black, He­liotrope Tex­ture Print, Blue Bolt/Navy

The Dare Scoop­back of­fers all the sup­port, breatha­bil­ity and good looks you want in a run­ning bra with an ad­justable rear clo­sure, so you don’t have to wres­tle it off over your head af­ter a sweaty run. The wide, ad­justable straps, built-in molded cups and in­te­grated bot­tom band pro­vide ex­cel­lent sup­port, and the line’s quick-dry­ing tech­ni­cal fab­ric, free-cut edges and min­i­mal seams per­form well.

Brooks

Dare Zip Run Bra $90

Medium sup­port

30 to 40 A/B to DD/E Orchid Haze, Navy, Black, Ma­genta/He­liotrope

The Dare Zip is that rare front-clos­ing bra ( by far the eas­i­est style to get on and off ) with a high-qual­ity zip­per that doesn’t chafe. The bra’s su­per­wide straps and mid-rise neck­line of­fer se­cure sup­port that’s com­fort­able and stress-free. Like all Dare mod­els, the Zip bra of­fers en­cap­su­la­tion thanks to the built-in molded cups, an in­te­grated bot­tom band, sweat-wick­ing tech­ni­cal fab­ric and free-cut edges, so chaf­ing will not be a con­cern.

Asics Ac­cel­er­ate Bra $55

Medium sup­port XS to XL Per­for­mance Black, Peach Pe­tal

The Ac­cel­er­ate bra has a soft bot­tom band that feels com­fort­able against t he skin. The ad­justable cross­back straps are wide enough to pro­vide good sup­port for run­ning, and the bra's seams are bonded to min­i­mize chaf­ing. Its mesh el­e­ments do a good job of keep­ing you cool, and we like the bra's high neck, which gives a feel­ing of se­cu­rity. This is a great-look­ing bra that per­forms well whether lay­ered un­der a shirt or tank or worn alone on warm days.

Un­der Ar­mour Cross­back Mid Run Bra $50

Medium sup­port XS to 3X Mul­ti­ple colour­ways

The new­est ver­sion of t his medium sup­port bra from Un­der Ar­mour is made of light­weight, sweat-wick­ing ma­te­rial (a blend of polyester and elas­tane) and fea­tures a beau­ti­ful key­hole de­tail that’s big enough to let you get it on and off over your head with­out too much dif­fi­culty, de­spite its snug bot­tom band. The higher neck­line pro­vides f ull cov­er­age and de­cent com­pres­sion, and the re­mov­able pads are per­fo­rated for breatha­bil­ity. (They’re also marked left and right for ease of re­place­ment, but they are de­signed not to move dur­ing wash­ing, so, with any luck, you won’t find ran­dom bra pads on your laun­dry room f loor.) A sim­ple yet sup­port­ive, f lat­ter­ing and af­ford­able run­ning bra – what more could a run­ner ask for?

Un­der Ar­mour In­fin­ity Mid-Run Hook Bra $55

Medium sup­port XS to 2XL Min­eral Blue/Min­eral Blue/Me­teor Pink

We love that this great-look­ing, medium-sup­port bra from UA has a back hook-and-eye clo­sure, which is un­usual in such an af­ford­able bra. The built-in pad­ding and smooth bot­tom band pro­vide ex­cel­lent cov­er­age, su­pe­rior fit and sup­port, and the ad­justable straps are a bonus in terms of get­ting the fit just right. There’s plenty of mesh to keep you dry and cool on long, sweaty runs or dur­ing work­outs at home. The bra’s polyester-and-elas­tane con­struc­tion is sweat-wick­ing and fast-dry­ing.

Lu­l­ule­mon En­lite Bra Weave $98

High sup­port 30C to 40E Black, Deep Fuch­sia, Cas­sis

Breath­able, quick-dry­ing, sweatwick­ing, and very sup­port­ive, the En­lite Bra Weave is per­fect for ei­ther small- or am­ple-breasted run­ners. The built-in cups and four-way stretch ny­lon-andLy­cra con­struc­tion min­i­mize move­ment while run­ning – some­thing many bras prom­ise but not all de­liver. The weave de­sign at the back is beau­ti­ful, and the rear hook-and-eye clo­sure (which is in­te­grated into the band, rather than sep­a­rate, sewn pieces) make it a dream to get on and off.

Lu­l­ule­mon Run Times Bra $74

High sup­port 32B to 38E True Navy, Cas­sis, Black

Lulu’s Run Times bra gets a big thumbs up. Its built-in, molded cups sep­a­rate and en­cap­su­late to give a feel­ing of se­cu­rity, while the sweat-wick­ing, four-way stretch fab­ric and per­fo­rated mesh in both front and back com­bine to make for a very com­fort­able run­ning ex­pe­ri­ence. The band and cups are sup­port­ive with­out chaf­ing, and the ad­justable, padded straps can be worn straight or criss­crossed. The rear hook-and-eye clo­sure means you don’t have to strug­gle to get it off over your head af­ter a sweaty run.
