Best Sports Bras & Features for Yoga

Posted on June 21, 2019

There are many reasons for doing yoga - to still the mind, connect to your breath, de-stress or improve your flexibility. Although yoga has been a meditation practice for thousands of years, it’s definitely having a moment right now with studios popping up all over the place. You’ve probably also seen all the yoga outer activewear doing the rounds. Whatever your reasons for doing yoga, you also need to consider what’s underneath your outfit. But you may be wondering, what’s the best bra to wear to yoga?

Features to look out for in a Yoga Bra

Lightweight Bra

A lightweight bra ensures comfort as you move through a series of poses in class. When you’re holding a tree pose or upside down in shoulder stand, you want your clothing and underwear to feel as light as possible. Triaction by Triumph’s studio range of bras and crops have both been designed specifically for the yoga and pilates studio. Triaction seamfree studio bras are so comfortable you can wear them all day (one less thing to remember to pack!). Our best-selling Triaction Racerback Sports Bra offers medium level support, perfect for your next downward dog. The racerback style lets you move gracefully with no strap adjusting interludes. The shoulder straps are also padded for extra comfort. This bra comes in a range of different colour options, too, to coordinate with your activewear wardrobe.

Wirefree Bra

Not just for small bust sizes, you can find a wirefree crop with good coverage to support you through your plough and bow poses. The Triaction Wellness Wirefree Bra from the Studio-Wellness series is ideal for low-intensity activity like yoga and pilates. This non-wired bra with natural contouring is made with LYCRA® fibre and breathable bi-active stretch fabric. It moves with your body, allowing you the freedom to move naturally and comfortably.

Breathable Bra

If you’ve been wondering what to wear to hot yoga, the number one consideration is something breathable. When you’re sweating your way through a triangle series, a breathable sports bra will help keep you cool. Moisture-wicking fabric will draw sweat away from your body for a more comfortable workout. The Triaction Zen Top is made of breathable fabric for optimal moisture management and a stay-dry feeling. The comfortable fit and fashionable crop top style make Zen a great choice for your next studio workout.

Have Fun with Colourful Bras

Colours or patterns can come out to play, especially if your yoga outerwear has cut outs or draping lines. The Triaction Seamfree Crop Top uses circular knit technology to offer support in a range of fun and sporty prints and colours. The high-quality moisture management fabric wicks sweat away from the body and keeps you cool during class. Wear it underneath your yoga clothing or as an outerwear crop.

Looking after your yoga bras

Make sure you take good care of your yoga bras to extend their life. Wash them by hand on in a lingerie wash bag in the washing machine and hang them by the centre or lay them flat to dry.

When to replace your sports bras

No matter how effective or hard-wearing a moisture-wicking fabric is, sports bras do need replacing regularly. Once they stretch out of shape, they won’t support you in the same way through your favourite Vinyasa session. Stretched straps that slip off shoulders are not ideal for holding zen-like poses and balances.

When shopping for your next studio bra, it’s best to get professionally fitted if you can. With over 125 years’ experience, Triumph are the experts in the creation and fitting of lingerie for your lifestyle.
