Pretty and Practical: Best Sports Bras For Different Workouts
Gone are days when activewear was reserved for the gym. As proven by celebrities who look effortlessly chic having brunch in sports bras and leggings, activewear can be equal parts functional and fashionable.
But while we’re thankful that the world has finally woken up to how good activewear can look, it’s important to distinguish between functional workout gear and well, fancy athleisure fashion. This is true for sports bras in particular.
For example, if you have a smaller chest and are doing low-impact activities like yoga, you may get away with wearing a casual cropped top designed primarily to look good. But if you have a bigger bust and are doing high-impact sports like running... All we can say is, “Ouch!”
At Kydra, our sports bras come in three different bra lengths for you to choose from. Beyond the coverage, they offer different levels of support depending on how high-impact your workout is.
Here’s how to choose the right one for your needs:
Support Level: Mid to High
Best for dancing, skating and most sports
As its name suggests, this the most common sports bra length. Our range of regular-length sports bras is the most versatile, providing good support for most workouts.
We recommend the Ava Bra, a new addition to the range of sports bras offered on the site. Sporting a simple scoop back design, the Ava Bra comes in a variety of bright and cheery colours to support both your good and bad days.
Support Level: Mid to High
Looking for a piece that's more evergreen? Give our semi-new and improved Thea Kyro Rib Bra a shot. Taking the feedback of our customers into consideration, we refitted the Thea Kyro Rib Bra to provide you with better comfort and support. The cherry on the cake? An added textured ribbed design element for that subtle edge.
There’s also the Thalia Bra, one of our signature pieces, which has unique, overlapping back straps and comes in eight fun colours to choose from. Play it safe with White, Black, Navy or Volcanic Grey, or make a statement with Smokewater, Lavender, Pistachio, Neptune or Rouge!
Support Level: High
Best for running, boxing, spin
Slightly longer than the regular length and featuring a thicker band, midline sports bras provide the most support and are the best for high-impact sports like running, boxing, spin, aerobics and mountain biking.
A popular #KydraSquad choice is our Sierra Midline Bra, now available in our signature Kyro fabric! Stay extra cool and dry, comfortable and supportive when you sprint towards beating your personal goals in the Sierra Kyro Midline Bra.
If subtlety is your thing, give the Freedom Midline Bra a shot. Do not underestimate the strength of its simple design! The extended band around your chest will give you the support you need in all your workouts, high-impact or not.
Support Level: Low to Mid
Best for walking, yoga
Longline sports bras feature a longer length that’s more similar to cropped tops. They’re suitable for low to medium-impact sports like walking, yoga, pilates and even strength training, and are great if you prefer more coverage up to your mid-waist.
Sport the chich cross-back design in our Core Longline Bra, a sure win in the gym or on the streets!
The best part about Kydra's sports bras is that they look as good as they feel, taking you from the gym to the ‘gram in a heartbeat.
Here’s some inspiration to dress up your sports bras in style.
Sports Bra + Pocket Shorts
Bike shorts are all the rage and perfect for Singapore’s sunny weather, so grab your favourite Kydra sports bra and pair it with our classic Kyro 4" Pocket Shorts.
Don’t feel like revealing so much skin? Throw on an oversized shirt or denim jacket and you’re good to go.
Sports Bra + Leggings
Take a leaf out of the Kardashian fashion book and head to the gym in a sports bra and leggings.
Kydra’s signature Kyro fabric is lightweight and breathable, so you can look good and feel even better in activewear that fits you perfectly as you sweat. Go tonal, or pick contrasting shades like we’ve done here for a bolder style.
Sports Bra + Pants
Our longline sports bras double as cropped tops, which go best with high-waisted pants and sneakers.
For a snazzy, athletic look, pair them with joggers or track pants to make a statement!
