Your sports bra problems solved—for good.

Let’s face it, ladies: We’ll happily fork over a small fortune for the right bra to accentuate that little black dress, but when it comes to sports bras, many of us are still shopping in the one-size-fits-all discount bin. Wearing the proper support while you break a sweat is more important than you think. “If the fit isn’t right, all that movement can cause sagging and loss of shape,” says Helen Eilert of KOP’s Intimacy boutique, who has 14 years of bra-fitting experience. That’s irreversible damage that can only be corrected with surgery. Yikes.

Good news: the right sports bra isn’t impossible to find—you just have to know what to look for. Here, the five best bras to solve your biggest fit problems.

Problem: “I wear two sports bras—at least.”
Surprise: Too much compression is a bad thing. Overly tight sports bras hold the breasts in but don’t prevent movement in other directions—up, down, left, right—which causes discomfort and stretching. Large-chested women (D to H cups) should try a Freya Active sports bra; the seamed cups and underwire encapsulate each breast for all-direction support. $62 at Intimacy, King of Prussia.

Problem: “My cups runneth over when I’m in downward-facing dog.”
Cleavage is fine for date night—but not for your yoga class. If you’re spilling out, try the high-impact, higher-cut All Sport Bra, best suited for B through D cups. $52 at Lululemon, multiple locations.

Problem: “Er, headlights. On.”
Whether it’s the extra blood flow or cooler temperatures, lots of us have girls that stand- at-attention during workouts. One word: p­adding. Try the Sugoi Women’s Jackie Bra, which has removable padded cups and flat seams for a textureless fit. $40 at Indigo Schuy, Chestnut Hill.

Problem: “Ugh. Uniboob.”
Yup, you can get the whole separate-and-lift thing from a sports bra, too. Under Armour’s Armour Bra defies the dreaded uniboob with sweat-wicking molded cups. Bonus: It comes in actual bra sizes—34A, 36C—for best fit. $57.99 at Nordstrom, King of Prussia and Cherry Hill.

Problem: “Wait, people wear sports bras to work out?”
If lounging is your only objective, you need Gap’s Racerback bra, the PJs of sports bras. It comes in a rainbow of colors and features buttery-soft material with seamless, wireless non-padded cups. $20 at Gap, multiple locations.

    According to Vick during a post game interview, the Eagles only revealed 60% of their play book. Casey’s chances will come and he needs to make the most of them.

    I’m a Casey fan! This kid is a winner.

    I never understood this signing, and where his role in his offense was coming from. Who are we taking receptions from to give to Casey? As a blocker lining up in the backfield, Harbor has displayed those skills and surely last year’s fullback Igwenagu is no strangers to lead blocking for Shady.

    I don’t see any justification in this signing and that guarantee given his skill set in Houston which is not that different from what Harbor did in Philly under Andy Reid. He’s not some gifted receiving tight end and his stats bare those facts.

      All I can say is Ertz looks real bad right now…Fatboys last second rounder in Curry is showing a lot more promise

  • ridusofreid

    It’s just one game. I think Kelly wants to introduce new players, formations, etc. each week. We just beat the division champs at their stadium. Let this play out. If nothing else, we know Kelly has a plan. Just like our opponents we don’t know what it is yet.

    I forgot he was even on the team

    • RIP illa

      Lol

  • ojdiddoit

    he needs to to stay healthy,not miss practice and have surgerys before training camp

  • Brent E. Sulecki

    get Ertz out and Casey in there. the Rookie can be good and all but his hands as of late have been suspect. Casey has been here and done this before. need him in the game. hope CK gets Casey all of ZE snaps and more….

    • All In Eagles

      Yep, switch those two around this week and let’s see. Give Casey those 3 targets and roll the dice.

  • TC

    bring back harbor

    Love Casey’s versatility and I’m pretty sure he’ll get a chance to be involved. I think that Kelly will start using him like the Texans did from lead blocking and out of the back field or in the slot. He was a guy I was excited to see play not sure if the coaches have favored Ertz’s route running. Hey at least he got $8 million guaranteed to be ready when they call his number. Good to see that he wants to compete! If I saw Monday’s offensive game tape tuesday morning with the offense…I would be disappointed that I wasn’t involved If I was him. That looked like a whole lot of fun!!!

    exactly

    Exactly….same way with Hernandez when he was in NE. Didn’t always have monster games.

  • theycallmerob

    Made sense to challenge their DBs, which is a weaker position. Different looks for different teams. Chip’s all about exploitation. I loved what Harbaugh did with Kaep last year for the playoffs, seemed to bring in a new trick each game.

  • All In Eagles

    I’ll tag along on this reason. Damaris was clearly a major player in TC and the preseason but didn’t do squat on Monday. There really are too many guys to spread the wealth to, especially if they run it 49 times (love it!!). I know that won’t happen again and Chip admitted he needed to get the pedal down, we should see more diversification on Sunday.
