A good sports bra that has been designed for running is equally as important as your running shoes. Up & Running stocks a wide range of proven bras from exciting brands such as Shock Absorber, 2XU, Panache and Sports Jock.

A supportive, well-fitting bra designed for high impact should be your only consideration for running. The 2XU Hi Impact, Panache wired and non-wired and the Sportjock Super Sports bra are all fantastic high impact bras. Medium impact bras such as the 2XU Medium Impact Crop and Sportjock Action Sports are fantastic for the gym, Pilates, everyday use and other sports that don’t challenge your body, and particularly breast movement, in the same way.

Ideally your sports bra will be fitted for you in store, but if that isn’t possible, take a good look at all the adjustment options on your bra and check that it fits you correctly.

To help you, check out our hints and tips for ensuring the best fit

While you may think a proper sports bra is only necessary for those who run fast, research shows that the greatest movement of the breasts is at a slow jog speed. For all female runners, regardless of age, shape, size, distance and speed, a bra that fits correctly will increase your comfort, decrease sagging of the breast and decrease breast strain.

Aside from the solid medical evidence to support wearing a well-designed sports bra, there is also the positive impact it will have not only on your performance but also your body confidence. Research from Plymouth University has shown that runners in an ill-fitting bra can cover the equivalent of an extra mile when running a marathon due to breast movement reducing stride length. This could equate to adding between 6 and 8 and a half minutes to your PB!

While no sports bra should ever celebrate a birthday, we’ve put together some maintenance hints and tips for getting the most out of your sports bra. 

Most sports bras have even been designed to be seen, not hidden away, so combine with one of our cool summer singlets and show your sassy side.
