Workout Tops With Built-In Bras

Workout Tops With Built-In Bras That Actually Work!

When you purchase a workout top with a built-in bra, you expect it to provide you with ample support during kickboxing class, a morning run, or a yoga class. Instead, what I've found is that I need a good sports bra to go under the top because the built-in bra doesn't do what it's supposed to — yes, very counterintuitive! I hate the feeling of wearing a bra with a top that already has a bra — it makes me sweat and adds extra bulk. Well here are some tops that you shouldn't need a bra with, no matter what your preferred fitness activity of choice is.

Clockwise from top left: Nike Long Swift Y-Back Print Running Top ($50), Athleta Chakra Tank ($49), Reebok Tank ($55), Lululemon Power Y Tank ($52), Athleta Equator Tank ($59), Calvin Klein Compression Spyder Tank ($30)

The lululemon Power Y tank is great, but I am small chested. I don't think it would offer enough support for a D cup. I wear mine running when at the gym on a treadmill, but I wouldn't rely on it for longer runs. I like a lot of support.

The zella line at Nordstrom is fabulous (one of their designers used to work for lululemon!) They have 2 different tops out now that are for c size that work extremely well

Smart blonde- I hear ya! I run and can't imagine DD is supported by a tank bra well enough. But if they do, I'll be grabbing one immediately.

Are any of them effective if one is, say, larger than a D cup?

I just got a new super cute one that felt good in the store. It wasn't until I worked out in it that I realized it Doesn't Work! So frustrating. I'll have to give one of these a shot.
