Best Running Bras of 2016 (A/B Cup)

To conduct our Women’s Running Bra Test, Monica Prelle wore these bras running more than 100 miles for each item. She compared the bras by running on the trails, road, and track in variety of climate and weather conditions. She logged miles at easy paces, race pace workouts, and lifting weights in the gym. This group includes only the top five scoring women’s running bras of more than 15 samples that were tested. She rated the product using our main criteria— comfort, fit/mobility, support, breathability, and style/design. The Gear Institute Rating is the combined score across all categories, representing the highest overall level of performance.
