Sports Bra Fit Process

Getting to know you, Measurements & Suggestions
Proper fit will provide you with the freedom to move and exercise with comfort and confidence. We start our bra FIT process with questions about your activities and style preferences. Next, we will take careful measurements and translate them into the correct size sports bra. Based on size and activity, we will select a few bras for you to try. Throughout the process we will offer tips and advice to help you reach your goals. Comfort, support, moisture wicking and breathability are key components you should look for in the perfect sports bra. 
Comfort
A good sports bra should feel comfortable, stay in place, and not chafe. The straps should not dig into the shoulders and the band should be comfortably snug to offer support, but not feel restrictive. Do jumping jacks, run in place, and swing your arms side to side to make sure what feels good on is also comfortable and supportive when you're in motion.
Support
If you're a small or medium breasted woman (A-C cup), a compression bra will offer the perfect amount of support and comfort. Or if you prefer, you can choose a bra that offers encapsulation for shaping as well as support. If you're a larger breasted woman (C-FF cup), encapsulating styles that separate and support your breasts are more comfortable and more supportive than compression bras. For maximum support, choose a sport bra that does both.
Moisture Wicking & Breathability  
A good sports bra will wick sweat away from the skin, dry quickly, be breathable, and allow perspiration and excess heat to pass through bra and away from the body. Your sports bra should also keep you cool and dry when it's hot, and dry and warm when it's cold.
