types of bra

There are 3 different types of sports bra designed for different cup sizes and end uses.


Designed to secure the breasts against the chest to reduce movement and bounce, compression bras are ideal for medium-impact sports. Can also be worn for high-impact workouts, up to C cup.


Ideal for high-impact sports and those with larger cup sizes. Featuring a design similar to that of an everyday bra, the cut lines create individual cups to surround and support each breast separately.


The best option for runners and those with larger cup sizes, this style combines Encapsulated cups with the look and firm hold of a Compression bra, for maximum support, comfort and shape.

For more information and a personal fitting, visit a Sweaty Betty boutique or use the bra guide for advice on the right support for your sport.
