Anyone a part of the itty bitty booby committee knows the struggle of finding a sports bra that fits. I, for one, have spent countless of hours perusing through the aisles of department stores and online retailers that often end up coming up short. You might think that small breasts equals easier compression, but that's simply not the case. The bras I find are often too big or not supportive enough, and as someone who does high-intensity workouts, sprints, and jump ropes 4-5 times a week (phewww, I know), I need one that's going to hug and keep my chest secure. Of all the sports bras that I've worn, Reebok's Lux Strappy Bra ($40) is the one that's wow'd me enough to make it my workout go-to. It's compressive enough for small chests like mine, never bagging or bunching when I need it to stay put.
What separates the Lux Strappy Bra one from the competitors in my drawer is the material and fit. Constructed out of recycled polyester and elastane, the bra offers a compressive-but-not-constricting fit that wicks away sweat and moisture, keeping my boobs dry even during my sweatiest moments. It doesn't bag at the waistline which other sports bras tend to do—it lies flesh against my ribcage and the rest of my chest to keep everything in its place.
For a more snug fit, like during burpees or sprints, I can easily adjust the back straps, which keep my girls locked in. Albeit not having underwire, the Lux Strappy offers medium support and doesn't dig into my skin like other bras do. As a smaller chested gal, it can be hard to find a bra that's both flattering and prevents cleavage slippage, but this one does both thanks to the subtle V-shaped neckline.
The bra comes in black and has a simple design (the Reebok logo across the brand), making it a timeless, affordable piece of athleisurewear that'll never go out of style. Plus, its doesn't hurt that it pairs well with literally all of my athletic bottoms: trendy tennis skirts, classic high-waisted leggings, comfy biker shorts, and all. When it's hot, I can wear it alone and not worry about any nip slips or the straps sliding down. Or, I can easily layer it under tank tops, T-shirts, and hoodies when I want a bit more coverage. It's simple, sophisticated, and supportive, the way any sports bra should be.
One caveat to note is that the bra is only available up to size XL, unfortunately excluding some shoppers with larger chests or those who prefer to match their exact cup size. But if you're on the smaller side like me—and are comfortable going with your normal top size—you're in luck: the Reebok Lux Strappy Bra runs in sizes S-2XS.
I've been testing the bra for several months now, and it's arguably one of the most supportive bras in my gym rotation. My itty bitty boobies are very happy in it during all my workouts—jump rope and all. If you've been on the hunt for a flattering, small-boob-friendly sports bra, look no further than the Reebok Lux Strappy Bra. It's a game changer.
