9 Top Sport Bras for Runners

CW-X Sport Support Bra $45

The bra "hugged very nicely without feeling tight," according to one tester. At first glance, the bra looks sleek and minimal, yet it achieves "perfect tightness" and optimal support. Our wear-testers liked the bra's simple look, and they felt it worked equally well under a shirt or alone. Sizes: S to L Best if you are: S to L; cw-x.com

Brooks Pro-Fit Bra $40

The Pro-Fit is packed with technology: supportive fabric that decreases bounce and adjustable racer-back straps and hook-and-eye clasps that make for a great fit. The removable cup inserts were a hit with a nursing tester. Sizes: 32B/C to 40B/C Best if you are: M to XL; brooksrunning.com; 800-227-6657

Hind Skinny Bra Top $38

One of two reversible bras that rated high with our wear-testers, this bra gives you the choice of a solid color or a pattern. And an asymmetrical back provides even more style. But this bra isn't just cute. It's seamless and offers superior comfort and moisture control. Sizes: S to L Best if you are: S; hind.com; 800-952-4463

Nike Sweat Beauty Reversible Sport Top $45
