If you want: To workout, you’ll need a sports bra, it’s as an important piece of kit as trainers whatever your bra size…

Buyer Natalie Boothby says: “This is a bestselling and award winning sports bra – it reduces bounce by 78% and has seamless lining for extra comfort.”

Customer Claire001 rates it five stars: “I do HITT exercises on the treadmill and lots of running and I don’t feel a single bounce! I’ve recommended this bra to so many people and they’ve all brought it and loved it. ”

The t-shirt bra


If you want: A bra that actually looks flattering under a T-shirt or body-skimming clothing…

Then you need: Figleaves Smoothing Sweetheart Full Cup T-Shirt Bra B-H.

The multiway

Then you need: Curvy Kate Luxe Strapless Bra.

Natalie says: “This bra is very supportive all the way up to a J cup. It has lightly padded cups which shape and lift. Oh, and it’s been praised by US TV star Wendy Williams.”
