We get it, we’re almost a third of the way done with 2021 and those New Year’s Resolutions are long forgotten. But something that always motivates me to do things is clothes. The second I put on a new sports bra or leggings, I’m so much more motivated to get my sweat on! So I’ve compiled a list of the cutest and best sports bras for your size and workout!


Bra Sizing

Buying the right size sports bra can be super annoying if you can’t try it on first! The first step is to be super sure about what your regular bra size is. Luckily, True & Co put together a super comprehensive, step-by-step guide to measure your bra size — you can read it here! 

From there, the best way to find out if you’re a small, medium, or large is to check with each individual bra’s size guide, as all bras are made a little bit different. This chart below will also give you a general idea of what size to buy.
