I Test Out Lots of Sports Bras — Here's Why I Always Go Back to This One From Girlfriend Collective
I am pretty picky when it comes to sports bras. I recognize that different styles are meant for different types of workouts, and since I have a larger chest, I have to know exactly what I want. There's nothing worse than realizing your sports bra won't actually support you during a workout. However, I'd be lying if I said the style didn't matter to me; I'm a lover of matching sets, and I use cute workout clothes as a motivation tool to actually get moving. I'm a big fan of Girlfriend Collective for the cute styles, soft, eco-friendly fabric, and inclusive sizing. The brand has over 15 sports bra styles, but I always end up going back to my favorite, the Girlfriend Collective Tommy Bra.
It manages to strike the right balance of supportive and comfortable; I feel held in but not bound down.
The bra has a square neck and back, which I generally find to be more supportive than a racerback. It manages to strike the right balance of supportive and comfortable; I feel held in but not bound down. While it's not the bra I'd grab for long runs, it will serve the needs of my daily hikes and low-impact sculpt classes beautifully. It is, though, definitely an upgrade in the support department from Girlfriend Collective's previous bras. Plus, the colors match beautiful with the brand's leggings and bike shorts, which is always a good thing in my book. It's also soft and sleek, so you might catch me wearing it as a crop top with a blazer and high-waisted jeans.
