The Sports Bra Guide

Our sports bras promise to stand up to any challenge – so turn up the heat in lingerie that’s as tough as your workout.


Why are they different to normal bras? Sports bras are designed to hold your boobs as close to your chest as possible – making sure there’s minimal movement and maximum support.

With decades of dedicated research and innovation, we’re proud to bring you the best. Expect: dreamy comfort, unwavering support and designs that you’d be proud to be seen in. It’s the little details that set us apart from the rest, from the bra-within-a-bra technology with cushioned cups to the adjustable padded straps that offer stabilised support when running, boxing and more

Ready to beat your personal best? Step this way…


What Bra Is Right for Me?

Discovering your perfect sports bra all comes down to what kind of fitness you’ll be doing when you wear it. We have low, medium and high impact designs, ready to support you through your gym session – even when you crank the energy up to full. It also comes down to preference; every woman is different and a certain fit might feel more comfortable than others.

Different Types of Sports Bras

At Victoria’s Secret all of our bras are made to offer unbeatable comfort, supreme support and one-of-a-kind design. And our sports bras are no exception! Our collection has a range of different designs for you to choose from – here’s a little run down of each:

Sports bra - D - slice01


Our patented bra-within-a-bra technology is designed with cushioned, underwired cups that clip in the centre, surrounded by an outer layer of super soft material. As the wire is embedded between two layers of foam it means that there’s no way it can dig in or irritate. This super supportive design can’t be found anywhere else!

Sports bra - D - slice02


Non-wired designs are often made with seriously strong outer materials, using compression to keep you held in one place, perfectly. They’re usually crafted with 4-way stretch that promises seamless comfort.

Sports bra - D - slice03


Racerback sports bras are a top choice for fitness enthusiasts – luckily, we have so many to choose from! This design has straps that scoop inwards at the back, offering exceptional support and bidding farewell to bra straps that slip off the arm.

Sports bra - D - slice04


Our pull-on creations are the ultimate grab-and-go gym bag essential. They’ll slip on over your head with little fuss and keep you supported throughout your workout.

Sports bra - D - slice05


Super supportive and easy to get on – our front zip sports bras are an exercise saviour. As the strong, compression material has a tight fit, it makes getting ready in the gym changing room an absolute breeze.

Bra Sizing & Fitting

How should a sports bra fit, and do you need to size down in sports bras? The golden rule when buying your favourite sports bra is to always choose the same size as your regular bra. It will feel tighter and firmer than your go-to lingerie staples, but it’s designed this way to keep your curves held in one place and reduce bounce. A sports bra should always feel comfortable, and although giving a figure-hugging feel, it should never be restrictive or dig in.

Need a little more advice on achieving the perfect fit? We’ve spoken to our fitting experts and placed it all together in a helpful bra size guide, along with a bra size calculator.
