Not all sports bras are created equal. To ensure maximum support while you work up a sweat, you need a bra worth its stuff. Why, you may wonder, are sports bras so important? Over time, the ligaments that attach the breasts to the body stretch and can cause sagging. A sports bra helps protect against that stretching sensation during your workout, holding your breasts close to the body even when you're pounding the treadmill. So whether you're an A cup or D cup, sports bras are a must.

Since women come in many shapes and sizes and athletic endeavors in many varieties, you'll have to find a bra that works well for your particular shape and sport. While you may burn 600 calories in that hot yoga class every Tuesday and Thursday at the crack of dawn, the amount of support you'll need isn't the same as when you're jetting to an hour-long spin class or busting out a 2-mile run during your lunch break.
