You can never have too many sports bras and that's a fact. Ava admits that she has a bunch of them at home but she has two of her favorites on rotation. Wash-and-wear pieces only mean one thing, you can never truly live without them! "My first pick is the Come At Me Bra in the color Sky from Recess. It's super comfy and I don't feel conscious about my body being hugged too tight. I can really wear them all day. Plus, always happy to support local! My second favorite is the Double Time sports bra from Outdoor Voices. It hugs my chest part so well and it covers all the right areas. The best part is that I've owned this pieces for so long and it's still in perfect condition," says Ava.
For someone who is always on the move, Patricia loves a medium support bra that will take her from lounging to doing what she loves best, spinning! "My number one pick when it comes to sports bras is my Energy Bra Long Line from Lululemon," says Patricia. Lululemon's sports bras are a cult-favorites for a reason and Patricia can attest to that!
"My current favorite sports bra is the Alpha Ultrabreathe from Nike. I love how it can also double as a cropped top! And even though I am not blessed in the chest department, it still gives me the support I need especially when I do high impact exercises," says Lissa. There are so many ways you can wear a sports bra with a pair of leggings and a windbreaker or a pair of trousers and an oversized blazer. Just like us, Lissa is guilty of wearing her top pick for a more sporty or a dressed up look.
As a former volleyball athlete, Ponggay knows a thing or two about sports bras! It's quite obvious that up until now, she swears to her favorites like the Nike top/bra she's wearing on her Instagram post above. "I love this kind of silhouette because it doubles as a bra and an actual cropped top. Apart from the necessary support that it gives, the versatility that this bra/top offers is perfect for those who want to wear it as is or with something else like a shirt," says Ponggay.
Nothing gets between Chi and her love for bright-colored fashion pieces. From dresses, lounge sets, to her sportswear must-haves, there's no such thing as a dull color or design in her wardrobe. "My current favorite sports bra is the Yoga Indy Novelty Bra from Nike since the material is incredibly soft and it's nice as a light support bra. It's perfect for Pilates which is what I do most often," says Chi.
