And to get the perfect band/strap balance for your individual shape, Robertson suggests looking for sports bras that come in normal bra sizes (e.g. 36E) rather than just small, medium, large, etc. Helpfully, some bras come labeled with an activity rating, which lets you know the amount of support to expect for your particular type of workout (e.g. "light support").
