Sports bras come in a variety of sizes to ensure the perfect fit and support for your active lifestyle. When it comes to sports bras, you will typically find sizes ranging from small to extra-large, with some brands offering specific band and cup measurements for a more personalized fit. It’s important to consider both the band size (the measurement around your ribcage) and the cup size (the measurement of your bust) when selecting a sports bra.

To determine your ideal sports bra size, I recommend measuring yourself using a flexible tape measure. Start by measuring around your ribcage just below your bust to find your band size. Then, measure around the fullest part of your bust to find your cup size. Once you have these measurements, refer to our sizing chart or consult with one of our fitting experts in-store who can help you find the perfect sports bra size based on these measurements.

A common misconception about sports bra sizing is that it’s similar to regular bra sizing. In reality, many women find that they need a different size in their sports bra compared to their everyday bras due to the unique support requirements during physical activity. It’s important not to assume that your usual bra size will automatically translate into the right fit for a sports bra.

Did you know that certain activities may require different levels of support from a sports bra? For example, high-impact activities like running or HIIT workouts may necessitate a more supportive and structured design, while low-impact activities like yoga or Pilates may allow for lighter support options. Understanding how different activities impact the type of support needed from a sports bra can help you make informed decisions when selecting one for specific workouts.

Now that you have an understanding of how sports bras are sized and why it’s important to get the right fit, I encourage you to take the next step by visiting our store or consulting with one of our experts online so we can help guide you through finding the perfect sport bras based on your specific needs and measurements. You’ll be amazed at how much difference finding the right fit can make in enhancing comfort and performance during physical activity!
