Do I have to wear a sports bra when I work out?
Sports bras are all about comfort. They are meant to offer more support and control when you’re active. For girls and women with larger breasts, that means that they aren’t as inconvenienced or pained by bouncing boobs while playing soccer or running track, let’s say. Girls with smaller chests—or girls who just prefer their every-day bras—might not notice a difference. And some chicas prefer the full coverage offered by sports bras, especially when exercising in skimpier tanks or gaping jerseys.
If you wear fancier bras with lace and delicate details, a sports bra will be easier to simply wash ‘n’ wear. And for high-impact sports, an underwire bra might be a little ouchy after hours of pounding up and down the field.
