In yoga or Pilates, you can get away with wearing a sports bra that just kind of holds everything in place, but when it comes to workouts that are more intense, like running or circuit training, you're going to need one that not only holds you in place but also lends extra support. So what makes for a great high-impact sports bra?

Well, a while back, we reached out to the CEO of Alo Yoga, Danny Harris, for quotes on the best types of sports bras for every workout, and this is what he told us: "Obviously, support and refined construction are critical for an A-plus sports bra. Alo's Equalize Bra has all the comfortable compression you need plus the best plush, fabric-wrapped straps that cross in the back for extra-serious support." Here, we have taken his advice and rounded up the best high-impact sports bras so you never have to feel unsupported by your sportswear undergarments again.
