Finding the right sports bra is akin to searching for the perfect pair of jeans - it’s a difficult journey and once you strike gold, you treasure them in your wardrobe forever.
Every woman is different, and that doesn't stop at their boobs - so each woman’s sports bra priorities will be different to the next. Here at TALA, we are female-founded, owned and mainly female-operated so we like to think we know what goes into creating the perfect sports bra.
What should I consider when searching for a sports bra?
What you’re looking for from a sports bra will mainly depend on your size of chest and what activity you’ll be using the sports bra for - level of support and comfort are both key factors. Whether you’re a gym-bunny or a yogi, we’ve thought of you all. So which TALA bra is right for you?
Best sports bras for high intensity activity
Whether you’re HIIT training, running, horse riding or cross-fitting, the last thing you want to be conscious of when you’re working out is what your boobs are doing. You want to feel secure and snatched - these are our top sports bra picks for high intensity activity:
Our whole Formtech collection is made to support you through even the hardest of runs and high-intensity workouts. The zip-front ensures you’ll be supported, while also guaranteeing the most flattering of looks before and after your workout.
Our High Neck Multiway lets you call the shots - you can wear it as a racerback or in a gorgeous drop back style, giving you flexibility along with support. It's slightly less high-support than our zip-up style, but will still provide support.
Part of our original core seamless range, your boobs won’t budge when wearing the Ixia sports bra - the zip is lockable for extra security.
Best sports bras for medium support
Not every workout session will require intense chest support. Maybe spin is your thing - or lifting in the gym. These sports bras are our top picks for those wanting a medium level of support for the girls.
The perfect balance between a supportive sports bra and a crop top, this flattering square-neck design will take you seamlessly from the gym to a night out.
This high neck, zip-up sports bra combines style with functionality. With high compression material, you’ll be able to concentrate on your performance. It’s available in both our original Core Seamless fabric (92% up-cycled Polyamide and 8% Elastane) and our newer, lighter-weight Sculpt Seamless fabric (54% recycled polyamide, 38% recycled polyester and 8% elastane).
DayFlex is our first ever pilates and yoga-inspired collection, and the DayFlex Square Neck Sports Bra is the perfect sports bra for medium level activities, double-layered with support band and DayFlex’s classic naked-feel material.
All the support of a sports bra with the cute strap detailing of your favourite top. High neck design with a built-in support band to provide extra support. Unique delicate straps with keyhole cut-out make this a sports bra you’ll want to show off.
With delicate back detailing and subtle padding, this bra provides the perfect balance between functionality and style. Featuring a compression band below the bust for maximum support, the racer strap sports bra moulds to your every move. The unique fabric blend of 76% recycled Nylon and 24% LYCRA® Sport provides a buttery-smooth feel, wherever you take your workout.
Best sports bras for low intensity activities
For those lower intensity activities - yoga, pilates or a long walk on an active rest day - these are your go to picks. We also love styling many of these up with day-to-day outfits or even a for a night out (DayFlex V Neck - we're looking at you).
So much more than your average yoga sports bra and so flattering, you’ll want to wear it beyond the yoga studio (we love it styled up for a night out). With a support band below the bust, this double-layered bra has a stylish deep v design both front and back and is crafted from our naked-feel DayFlex fabric.
A cute and delicate sports bra that still manages to support you through your workouts. With a distinct multi-strap design and crafted from super soft, lightweight seamless fabrics for ultimate comfort this is bound to become your favourite sports bra. For a more medium support, we’d recommend sizing down.
This cute and stylish wrap bra will elevate any gym outfit. The wrap front and cross back design makes this bra is both functional and flattering, with thick, supportive straps to hold you in place so you feel comfortable and confident.
