The Best Sports Bras for Summer

As the weather warms up, working out in the heat and humidity can be more of a challenge, particularly when you’re not equipped with the right activewear pieces to keep you cool and supported. When summer kicks into full swing, we are often rocking an activewear set combo of a sports bra and bike shorts, as it gets far too hot to wear multiple layers.

With our sports bras being one of the few layers sitting against our skin, it’s important we pick the right one to support us and prevent any moisture which could cause chafing. We’ve all experienced the uncomfortable feeling of an ill-fitting sports bra digging into our back as we run or constantly having to re-adjust your bra after completing a set – it can really impact your exercise performance.

So, we’ve compiled our favourite sports bras we’ll be living in this summer to keep us cool while working out. With everything from low impact to high impact and varying price points, we’ve got you covered.

Strap In Blue Sports Bra

The Strap In Sports Bra is one of our favourites for the summer season. It is a maximum support sports bra that is great for women whose workouts are centred around high impact exercises. The cornflower blue is also one of our go-to colours for summer, providing a pop of colour to your athleisure looks.

The material is lightweight and breathable, so you don’t have to worry about over-heating and chafing in the summer sun! It was also constructed with the Lorna Jane ‘Nothing 2 See Here’ fabric which uses interlocking technology to ensure maximum coverage.

To top it all off, you can even make the summer sports bra into a set by pairing the ‘Go The Distance Sports Bra’ with our No Chafe Lotus Bike Shorts or No Chafe Lotus Ankle Biter Leggings in the same stunning Cornflower Blue colour.

Our favourite features:

Go The Distance Yellow Sports Bra

Keep calm and look cool this summer in the ‘Go The Distance’ sports bra. This sports bra was made to be worn in warmer weather. Constructed with Lorna Jane’s ‘Cool Core’ fabric, this bra will maintain your temperature and moisture levels to maximise your performance and help to keep you dry and comfortable. The material provides a cooling feel to the wearer when exercising. It also features a clasp-back offering an added layer of support.

Not only this, but the sports bra comes in this beautiful dandelion yellow. Feel as though you’re on a coastal holiday in this ocean-inspired summer bra colour. Make it a matching set with the Distance Stomach Support Phone Pocket bike shorts. If yellow isn’t your go-to colour, check out the Go The Distance Sports Bra in our French Navy colourway.

Our favourite features:

Lotus Longline Pink Sports Bra

For a sports bra that’s a little more low-key, this longline sports bra is another staple we’ll be reaching for this summer. Great for low-impact exercises such as Pilates and yoga or lazing on the couch (whatever you fancy!), it provides all-day support. The sports bra also features a stunning strappy back detailing, with a lightweight and soft feel on the skin. It was also created with the Lorna Jane ‘Nothing 2 See Here’ fabric which uses interlocking technology to ensure maximum coverage.

Our striking milkshake pink colour is a great option for the summer season to add some more colour to your activewear collection! Also available in matching Lotus Pink Bike Shorts and Lotus Pink Ankle Biter Leggings
