Before athleisure was officially a thing, I was rocking sports bras, leggings, and all my other athletic gear 24/7. Over the years, I've curated a collection of sports bras that range from low-impact bras for lounging around in to high-impact bras designed for intensity and a lot of sweat. My favourite sports bras rarely change, but one that has quickly ascended to the top of my most-loved list is the Girlfriend Collective Paloma Sports Bra ($57).
The longline fit is my favourite thing about this bra because it doubles as a crop top, which means one fewer article of clothing I have to wear during the humid New York City Summer. I also can't get over how soft the fabric — made from recycled water bottles — is! It's definitely one of those bras you can wear all day without feeling like you're suffocating; say goodbye to that annoying elastic band imprint you always end up with once you take off your sports bra.
The Paloma bra was designed for medium-impact workouts, which means you can do yoga and your favourite strength workout in it without having to adjust yourself every 20 seconds.
Aside from the style and all the colours, I'm really into the fact that this bra fits a range of sizes: 30A to 40DD. Another perk about this sports bra is that it's not just for workouts. You can rock it under a blazer, with a pair of high-waisted shorts or jeans, or with the matching pair of Girlfriend Collective leggings.
