When to Wear a Sport Bra

Sports bras are designed for your active lifestyle, so they're perfect for:

  • At the gym
  • During outdoor activities
  • When you're cleaning the house
  • When you're playing with kids
  • When you're exercising the dogs
  • Anytime you're being active

In addition, our low impact sports bras tend to be quite comfortable, too, so many women wear these types of sports bras:

  • On the weekend
  • When running errands
  • After work
  • When you're gardening
  • While relaxing

There's really no time when it's bad to wear a sports bra, although many women prefer a more traditionally-structured bra for work, or a sexier bra for date night.
