Feel Confident & Supported With The Right Sports Bra From Harris Scarfe

There's no shortage of sports bras to choose from at Harris Scarfe. From tried and tested favourites in the Berlei sports bra range, such as Berlei Electrify, to the massively popular Triumph sports bra collection, including Triumph Triaction, you can be sure you'll find a sports bra that can handle whatever activity you throw at it. Whether you favour an evening jog or a soothing yoga session, sports bras are an essential part of any women's sports & activewear wardrobe.

Why An Effective Sports Bra Is A Wardrobe Essential

  • Superior support for a range of activities: From low-impact activities to high-impact yoga, running, netball, walking, tennis and more, superior support under pressure is the responsibility of a good sports bra. By reducing breast bounce, sports bras help minimise breast pain and potential injury, so you can enjoy maximum movement without being self-conscious or cautious about hurting yourself.
  • Breathable materials for sweat-wicking: With the demands of physicality in mind, sports bras are constructed from breathable fabrics that have sweat-wicking qualities. This means, rather than keep sweat against your skin, moisture is drawn away from your skin, so you stay drier and more comfortable for longer.
  • Lightweight design and materials for ultimate movement: Everything about a sports bra is designed to ensure you're not restricted or constricted in your movement. All materials in a sports bra are as light as possible and you're unlikely to be stabbed under the armpit with a wayward wire! You should hardly know that you're wearing a bra when it's a sports bra.
  • Full coverage for support of the breast tissue: Despite being light and facilitating movement, sports bras offer complete coverage, so all breast tissue is amply supported. This not only ensures you feel 'in control' while working out, but it also means your breasts are totally protected.
  • Available in a range of sizes and plus sizes: No woman should miss out on the opportunity to move, do what she wants to do and express herself fully. Regardless of your bust size and the type of activity you're engaged in, you'll be able to find the sports bra that's right for you - from plus-size sports bras to ones for smaller breasts.

Sports Bras FAQs

What does a sports bra do?

Put simply, sports bras are designed to fully support breast tissue during sports and exercise. Constructed from sturdy and stretchy materials they offer greater support than other bra styles, while minimising breast movement and alleviating discomfort.

How to put on a sports bra

Depending on the style and construction of your chosen sports bras it can sometimes be a little tricky to take them on and off. This is down to the greater compression provided by the materials, or whether or not the sports bra is a pullover style. Pullover sports bras often pose the greatest challenge in putting them on, so here are a few tips and tricks to make the process easier:

  • Much like putting on a pullover, hold the sports bra upside down by the band with the cups facing you.
  • Stretch the band slightly and slide your arms into the armholes, then place the sports bra above your head and stretch your arms so the bra and straps slip to your shoulders.
  • You can then begin pulling the sports bra over your chest and back before finally adjusting for comfort.

How to stop a sports bra from rolling up

If you're encountering a bit of slippage in your sports bra - or finding that the band is rolling up - it may be time to re-measure yourself and get a new one. The best way to prevent a sports bra from rolling up is to ensure you choose a style with a wide, snug band. You should also check that the straps are correctly adjusted (i.e. not too loose), and avoid using lotions on your skin as this can minimise the friction needed for the band to stay in place.
