You always want them to be working just as hard as your fancy sports bras are. Like a good friend would, they need to support you, but they should also motivate you. As in, “ugh, this thing” should never be thought or uttered when putting one on. Instead of hiding your sports bras underneath an old high school tee, let them out to play during that hot yoga class, those sets of reps or on your miles-long jog. You can DIY your old sports bra or snap up a new one to help make your workout routine just a little bit more stylish. Check out these 11 champs below.
