Any woman who has wrestled a bra onto her damp body after stepping out of the shower is a candidate for the latest lingerie hack. Make your sports bra your all day, every day bra. Free your breasts from lacy confections that stab and jab with every move but give you no support. Build a wardrobe of sports bras that are comfortable, breathable and machine washable. Sports bras are not only practical but pretty, and they give you a shape that is beautifully natural. Here are a few suggestions to help you fill your lingerie drawer.
