Your new favorite BRA
Let’s talk runner essentials! It goes without saying that a good pair of running shoes is key for every runner of any distance. But for women runners there’s another very important must, a supportive bra. The sports bra has gone through many changes, modifications and upgrades since it’s beginning in 1977 when three friends put together a couple of jock straps to create what they named the JogBra.
Since then, the sports bra has hit the ground running and emerged a countless number of styles and colors, but still women were finding themselves in need for a better bra specifically for running. That’s where Brooks comes in! After speaking with more than 1,400 women runners through focus groups, bra summits and many many hours of research with testers across the country, Brooks has taken the bra game to a whole new level and created the Run Bra. Developing a variety of bra styles for every runner’s needs Brooks is ensuring there is a perfect fit run bra for every runner.
Brooks Run Bras are designed specifically for the high-impact nature of running to hold you in without holding you back. After years of research Brooks has now developed two collections of Run Bras to give every runner exactly what she is looking for. The Dare Collection and the Drive Collection, available in sizes ranging from XS-XXL as well as band and cup specific sizing ensuring there is a perfect fit for every sized runner. Just like helping you find the perfect fit running shoes we want to help you find the perfect Run Bra.

Bra fitting 101:
When it comes to bras for running, not just any sports bra will do. Brooks created Run Bras specifically designed for women and engineered to the way your body moves. Brooks run bras deliver high impact support and a comfortable fit. Run bras are great but you have to know how to find the perfect size for you. If you can’t make it into a Fit2Run location to be fitted, follow these tips and tricks to find your perfect fit.
Figuring out your bra size
The first step to getting the perfect fitting run bra is to know your size. Bra fitting doesn’t have to be daunting and you can actually do it yourself very easily! First, you will need to grab a tape measure and make sure you are wearing a bra that is low impact and promotes your true shape. When fitting for a bra you will need to determine both your band size and cup size in order to find your run bra size.
Measuring the band size
To measure your band size, position the tape measure around your rib cage and right where the bottom band of your normal bra would fit. Measure the circumference and write down the number that is associated. The tape measure should be comfortably snug, round up if in between numbers.
Finding your cup size
After you figure out your band size, it is time to find the cup size. Position the tape measure from behind your back and around the fullest part of your boobs. Record this number and again, round up if between measurements. Once this is done all it takes is some simple math to find your cup size. Simply subtract the band size measurement from the cup size measurement. The difference between these two measurements determines your letter cup size. For example if it’s a 1 inch difference you are probably an A cup, 2 inch difference, a B cup, 3 inch difference, a C cup, and so on.
