8 Sports Bras Without Padding That Are Cute And Comfortable


I've just gotten into the swing of things and am starting to work out again. It took me some time to do it, because if I'm being honest, it's not my favorite activity in the world. One thing that helped me out was buying some cute workout gear and that includes sports bras without padding, because they're cute and comfortable without making me feel over-the-top.

I really don't like to have padding in my sports bras. I think that because I have bigger boobs, they look silly on me, and I think padding would make it worse. Instead, I look for compression sports bras or lightly-lined ones. I think that they offer more support and are more comfortable. The great thing about finding bras that I love, is that they usually have them in several different colors. If I can find ones without padding that comes in different designs, I will buy all of them.

Sports bras without padding can be lifting, made with moisture-wicking fabric, or stretchy. They can be front opening, they can be full coverage, and they can double-lined. Whichever type of bra you choose, you need to make sure you're comfortable and feel like you have the support that you need.
