Sports bras do more than just provide support, they act as backup when women need help a regular bra can’t provide, like when women participate in physical activities. Whether it is a high-impact activity like running or a low-impact activity like Pilates, and whether they are called sports, exercise, running or workout bras, sports bras provide support while you exercise. Sports, exercise, running and workout bras give women the freedom to think about something other than the support they are getting, or not getting, from their bras. Exercise and workout bras are great for Pilates classes or just doing sit-ups, and running bras compress and prevent possible injuries resulting from too much bounce. Sports bras from great brands like New Balance, Moving Comfort and CW-X offer a whole new level of comfort.
