Sports bras are an essential item to take part in exercise for anyone with breasts. Lack of support can hinder performance, cause damage and increase the chance of sagginess later on. 

Whichever end of the size scale you are at, be sure to protect yourself and get the most out of your running. Not only can a lack of support cause breasts to stretch beyond repair, but not wearing a good sports bra can also cause tension and strain in the upper back and neck. For runners, we recommend investing in a 'high support' bra because your body moves and bounces a lot with each stride. Wearing a high-support bra will minimise the up and down and side to side movement. 

Say hello to the best sports bras available at Wiggle right now.


Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra

Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra

The Ultimate Run Bra is made, you guessed it, especially for running. It is designed to keep your boobs in place both horizontally and vertically to stop unwanted movement, without restricting you elsewhere. The straps are non-slip, the back is easy to do up and secures well so you can feel confident that you are supported with each stride. Ideal for all size breasts, this bra is an encapsulation bra that holds each breast separately in place. The band can come up small, so we recommend going one band size bigger than normal.

Support level: High

Size: 30 A - 38 G


Shock Absorber Ultimate Fly Sports Bra

Shock Absorber Ultimate Fly Sports Bra

The Ultimate Fly Sports Bra is on our list because it is extremely lightweight and the fabric is soft so won't cause any friction. The material is also extremely sweat-wicking so again, won't cause any discomfort and rubbing when running. The cups mould to your body and the double back adjustment both give you the ultimate support you need, no matter which size you are. This bra fits true to size, so go for your regular fit.

Support level: High

Size: 32 B - 38 F


Shock Absorber Active Multi Sports Support Sports Bra

Shock Absorber Active Multi Sports Support Sports Bra

Not only are we big fans of the leopard pattern on the Active Multi Sports Support bra, but this crop-top style bra offers both compression and encapsulation to restrict bouncing. It has a racerback design which is known to provide extra support too. It's easy to get on and off even after the sweatiest of activities and the breathable material is sweat-wicking which helps prevent rubbing.

Support level: High

Size: 32 C - 38 F


Runderwear Original Support Sports Bra V4

Runderwear Original Support Sports Bra

Runderwear is the England Athletics Official Bra and Underwear Partner so they know a thing or two about making comfortable, performance sports bras for athletes. The Original Support bra has great airflow and quickly removes sweat from your body. The straps are comfortable against the shoulders and non-slip, so you won't experience any chafe when exercising. 

Support level: Medium

Size: 34 B - 38 D


Under Armour Women's Infinity High Bra

Under Armour Women's Infinity High Bra

The padded foam on the Under Armour Infinity sports bra is shaped to fit around you and provide added comfort. The encapsulating design is great for bigger chests and helps to minimise bounce when running. We love the sleek design of this sports bra with adjustable criss-cross straps. 

Support level: High

Size: Extra small- extra large
