How Many Sports Bras Do You Own?

Let's face it, working out in the Summer is a very sweaty activity. If you don't do laundry every day — and really, who has time to — you need multiple sports bras if you work out regularly. My collection of support has grown over the years. I have a couple of favorites for running, and ones I like to wear for strength training or cycling. I now own a total of four quality sports bras, all of which I consider essential for my active life. What about you . . .

I have 8 because I don't like to do laundry every week.

I have many, 7 or more? I don't do laundry often. But you don't need to spend $40 a pop on them, ella1978! TJMaxx or Marshalls has brand name sport bras for $7-10. I don't care if the clothing I sweat in is last-season, irregular, or overstock. I usually can pick up some sweat-wicking gear reasonably priced, too!

I have two but I don't tend to alternate. My other one is uncomfortable.

Same here, thenekoling! A regular bra works fine.

I only have 3. I really want more, but I need the good ones, and it hurts me to pay more that $40 dollars for a sports bra.

I'm so flat that the idea of me wearing a sports bra seems ridiculous. A normal t-shirt bra or anything is fine for me!

I have two, but I only really use one of them regularly. It's from Lululemon, and it was $60, and completely worth every penny!

I have something like 6 or 7, but I do laundry a lot and I use only about 2 or 3 of them regularly.

I need at least two at a time no matter what I am doing, so at least 5 in a week and I usually have to do laundry twice a week:(

I wear 2 at a time. I wish I could find one that actually worked.

I have four quality ones based on activity. The more expensive ones (Hanes at Sears) I use for high-impact cardio and the other two for strength training/medium-impact cardio. I also have the tanks with built-ins. I still find my self doing a lot of laundry by the week's end.

I have two CW-X bras, and they were well worth the money. They are by far the best sports bras I have ever used (I'm a 34DD).

I'm, um, NOT that well endowed Eye-wink but I've heard that Title Nine has GREAT sports bras for girls with bigger, well, girls Title Nine does have some excellent bras - I really like the Moving Comfort Line - my boobs don't move an inch!

3 - I do end up doing laundry a lot though.

i have more than 5 - that's for sure. sometimes they are the more comfortable alternative under a t-shirt than a regular bra and sometimes i work out more than 1x a day and it's just not comfy to put on a sweaty one.

i own five sports bras by themselves - all by lululemon, the cross-back and the not-so-deep v are my FAVORITES - but also own at least six other tops with heavy duty built in sports bras. so that makes 11 total.

Modus Vivendi, that is genius! While I would still wash it in the laundry once a week, that is perfect to get through a few days at a time. I have six but I prefer two of them so I wear those most.

I have 3 or 4, but mostly because I hate doing laundry. And I have to admit, I sometimes wear them 2-3 days in a row.
