When shopping for sports bras today, there are so many fashion-forward options. As a fitness expert who regularly wears workout clothes, I find myself asking, “How is this going to look underneath my workout top?” Usually, the answer is that my sports bra will be sticking out or I won’t get the support I need during a workout.
Many of my clients feel the same way — some bras are too fashionable to be functional, and others are too constricting to wear for anything other than a workout. What's a gal to do?
Thankfully, I've finally found my favorite sports bra after trying countless styles over the years — and the make and style has kept improving over the years! My favorite bra made by Nordstrom's line of activewear, Zella, is the Cupid sports bra. Aside from its support, it has a very basic design which lays perfectly underneath all of my different workout tops. The simple racerback style isn’t bulky, so it doesn’t stand out much, even if it’s showing. The front is a scoop neck so no matter how low or high my workout top is, the neckline doesn’t interfere with the style of my top.
The medium support that this bra provides is just enough for exercises that involve jumping and dance workout classes, as well as being comfortable enough to wear for the whole day! And as an added bonus, it doesn’t smash your chest. Here it is, with a few of my other favorite styles.
