Celebrate national underwear day: 9 supportive sports bras for everyday wear at the yard and in the saddle

Today (5 August) is national underwear day, so if you’re looking for the best sports bras for horse riding you’ve come to the right place. Studies have shown that less than 35% of female horse riders in the UK wear a sports bra compared with the vast majority of runners, despite the impact not being all that different. Three in four riders also reported that they wanted an improvement in bra support, style and fit for riding and breast pain was found to be the fourth-greatest barrier to riding for women.

Wearing a sports bra can reduce breast movement by 80%, while a normal bra only achieves a 38% reduction. Reducing movement prevents breast pain and damage to the breast tissues, so a good sports bra should be an essential part of your riding kit.

The good news is that as well as being practical, lots of equestrian brands have designed sports bras that look great – and don’t show through competition shirts – too. It’s important to choose the right bra for you – jump down for more info on what you should consider when choosing a sports bra.

How to choose the best sports bras for horse riding

Firstly you need to decide on what style is best for you. The general rule is that encapsulating sports bras (where each breast is encapsulated separately, such as the Pure Lime high impact bra) are better for larger breasts, whereas compression bras (that squash the breast tissue into the chest, such as the LeMieux Activewear sports bra) is preferable for smaller breasts.

It’s important that your new sports bra fits correctly – follow these steps for a good fit

  1. Straps – the shoulder straps should not be too tight or dig into the skin. Adjustable straps are ideal.
  2. Cups – there should be no bulging or gaping and the top or sides.
  3. Underband – this shouldn’t slide around your chest, but neither be too tight, uncomfortable or cause flesh to bulge at the edges.
  4. Front – this is the lower edge under the breasts (and sometimes between the cups) and should sit flat against the body.
  5. Underwire – if the bra is wired, it shouldn’t rest on any of the tissue (including in the centre, under the breast or arms)

When it comes to colour, if you’re worried about it showing through a white competition shirt you’re best to choose a nude or white. Otherwise the world’s your oyster when it comes to fun colours and prints. Finally, to check that the bra is offering you enough support for the level of impact you need, try jumping up and down in it to assess how it might stand up to the job.
