Once upon a time, sports bras came in a very uninspiring choice of black and white with the occasional coloured stripe for a bit of interest.
Now they come in all sorts of bright, fun shades and we love it, because bright colours make us feel much more motivated.
Specialist sports bra brand Shock Absorber always introduces great new seasonal colours in its range, and for spring/summer 2014 the brand has gone for an eye-catching limited edition blue bird and rose pink combo in two of its most popular styles, the Ultimate Run Bra and the Active Multi Sports Support Top.
The Ultimate Run Bra (left) is Shock Absorber’s flagship bra that is designed for runners and offers an eight-way support system to reduce bounce by up to 78% compared with wearing no bra. The soft, seamless cups mean no uncomfortable rubbing and chafing as you run.
Buy: 30-36 A, 30-38 B-F, £38 (currently £32.20), from Figleaves.com.
The Active Multi Sports Support Top (right) is a great choice for people who take part in lots of different activities and don’t want to buy sports bras for each one. The crop top style provides maximum support with an integrated sports bra and racer back straps while mesh side panels and moisture wicking, breathable fabrics take care of comfort.
Buy: 32-34 A, 32-28 B-C, 28-40 D-HH, £26 from Less Bounce.
