Finding the best sports bra just for you can be tough. There are so many questions you have to ask: does the fabric rub in places it shouldn’t, or does it disappear against the body? Will it wick sweat and dry fast during even the most intense HIIT workouts, or will it absorb perspiration like a sponge? Does it dig into your armpits or ribcage, or does it feel just right? And most importantly, is it supportive enough for your favorite workout?
