Sometimes it feels like there’s a complicated science to finding the right sports bra – one that minimises bounce, looks good, and isn’t so tight it gives you back pain.

Once you know the basics, we promise it isn’t difficult. As anyone with boobs knows, sports bras are essential during a workout, no matter your cup size. They provide support and comfort, and not having the correct protection can damage your breast tissue.

Stephanie Keen, a trend forecaster from Cotton On Body, says that having the right fit and support is key to comfort, as well as output.
