Let’s Talk Sports Bras
Sports bras can make the difference between a great workout and no workout. We invited four athletes to share their personal experiences testing sports bras—and to tell us which ones were their favorites—to help find the right sports bra for you.
Made for any activity that gets your heart racing, these bras have strong straps and built-in cups to hold you in and take the pressure off your shoulders. They’re the perfect balance of control and comfort.
Not your average high-support sports bra. No wires—just soft, sleek fabric and molded cups for secure coverage. So you have the confidence to crush your workout.
Everything you love about strappy sports bras—now with more support. The smooth fabric looks as good as it feels. The molded cups highlight your natural shape.
Nike FE/NOM Flyknit
Shape, support and compression in one seamless style. This racerback fits like a snug crop top so you’re free to run, jump and shoot hoops.
“I felt very free, like I had nothing to worry about when it came to my sports bra. I had a lot of support, and it was very comfortable.”

Giving you more coverage and compression to keep everything in place, these bras work well for any cup size. Use them for medium-impact workouts like running, training and indoor cycling.
Your classic, go-to sports bra. A scoop neck keeps you covered, and the racerback helps it go on and off like a T-shirt. The snug band stays put when your spin class turns it up.
Nike Swoosh UltraBreathe
An edgy take on a familiar fit. The mesh band keeps this bra super lightweight, breathable and fast-drying—so you can zip from one activity to the next in high style.
Your favorite Swoosh style with more support for bigger cup sizes. This no-dig, easy-to-wear racerback pairs with any look for instant cool girl vibes.
“The Swoosh didn’t look like something I could wear, but surprisingly it was a great fit. I felt lifted and supported. I regret not getting it sooner.”
Fitness Trainer, Model
Designed for all-day wear and comfort, these bras are softer and less structured—ideal for smaller cup sizes. Wear them for low-intensity activities like yoga, Pilates or casual hikes.
A barely-there bralette with a unique strappy design. The soft, stretchy fabric hugs your body, while the long-line fit stays in place as you flow through your practice.
A four-season staple with extra sporty style. The low-cut front gives you just enough coverage. The mesh on the back helps you keep your cool.
“I loved the Indy! It fits perfectly. It’s tight in the best way. I felt supported and comfy. My boobs weren’t all over the place. I’m normally not a padding girl, but this fits perfectly.”
