The best bras for runners
When it comes to running, choosing the right bra is just as important as wearing the right shoes. Here are our picks for the best bras for runners
Find the right jog bra
A really good bra for running is comfortable and supportive. Sports bras come in medium support (lighter-weight fabric and for smaller-breasted women), high support (for average-size breasts), and maximum support (they have more construction to them). When trying them on, jog in place in the change room. Does the bra feel like it’s providing the support you want? Also, sit down and take a deep breath. If it feels restrictive, it’s too small. Here are three options (prices listed are for Running Room stores across Canada).
Champion Double Dry Seamless
Full-Support Underwire Sports Bra: This high-support bra has a fully constructed inner bra with triple-cushioned underwire for full support and comfort. Adjustable Velcro straps provide a customized fit. ($55)
