Now that our entire lives take place at home, getting dressed really only needs to be a once-daily occurrence. Since leggings and a workout top are now an acceptable uniform for basically every activity, there’s no need to change your outfit between your work day and your workout.

With summer officially here, we sussed out the ultimate wear-everywhere WFH necessity: the waterproof exercise top. You can throw one on for your a.m. Zoom call, wear it for your midday workout, and then keep it on for a dip in whatever body of water you’re next to (even if that’s just a kiddy pool on your fire escape). It’s basically a work shirt, a sports bra, and a bathing suit all in one, which will make getting dressed for any activity a total breeze.

Scroll through for some of our favorite do-everything, waterproof sports bras, which you won’t want to (or have to) take off between now and Labor Day… except on laundry day.

7 waterproof sports bras to wear all summer

Athleta Conscious Crop in Powervita A-C, $59

Be your own summer sunshine with this brightly-hued crop top, which comes in a buttery soft fabric and is perfect for low-impact workouts and afternoon dips.

New Balance x Staud Performance Crop Top, $70

Allow me to preface this by saying that I want to own everything in the new New Balance x Staud capsule collection, but this rash guard-inspired sports bra tops the list. It zips in the back and has multiple built in bands for added support, and comes in three different color-blocked styles (no judge if you want to buy ’em all).

UA Summit Crop Top, $55

Made with quick-dry technology, this top is great for making the quick transition between a swim sesh and an a.m. meeting.

Alo Yoga Line Crop Tank, $41

This pretty cut-out tank will garner plenty of Zoom call compliments… just beware of tan lines (read: load up on SPF!) when you wear it outside.

Beach Riot Bowie Top, $59

Beachriot’s workout gear is made with ultra-soft compression fabric that actually feels like a bathing suit. While this top might not be great for, say, a HIIT workout, it will look pretty dang cute in beachfront yoga Instagram photos.

Summersalt The Marina, $95

More of a one piece person? This ultra-supportive suit will hold your boobs in place for even the most high intensity workout thanks to built-in cups and adjustable straps, and doubles as a really cute top layered under jeans (or, more realistically, sweats) and a sweater.

Girlfriend Collective Topanga Bra, $38

This sports bra has become a cult-fave among fitness lovers (I’m actually wearing the plum version right now), and it’s for good reason. It’s comfortable enough to feel like you’re wearing nothing at all while also being super supportive thanks to a thick bottom band that keeps everything in place.

Need a little summer workout inspo? Try this routine, which you can do from the comfort of your lounge chair.
