Determining fitness goals at the start of a new year can be exciting or feel more like a chore to some. For those women looking to get back in shape, lose weight, and stay healthy following breast cancer surgery, it can often be even more of a struggle to identify those goals and stay on track.
You might be concerned with the availability of mastectomy sports bras to keep you safe and secure following breast reconstruction surgery or while wearing a breast prosthesis. The good news is that there are plenty of styles available, and all are designed with your needs in mind.
Mastectomy sports bras come in a variety of sizes and designs. You’ll want to look for sports bras with wide shoulder straps and under bands, breathable materials, and pocketed cups if you have breast forms.
Whether you’ve identified your fitness goals or still contemplating them, one way to increase your chances of success is by feeling good in the workout clothes you wear. To help prepare yourself for success, find a sporty bra geared to your form of exercise, from gentle yoga to advanced cardio activities.
Here are six sporty bras to consider this year.
1. Anita Extreme Control Post-Mastectomy Bra
For a functional, comfortable sports bra that is also inspiring to look at, try the Anita Extreme Control Post-Mastectomy Bra. One version of this sporty bra includes a pink ribbon on one front strap to honor breast cancer survivors and bring awareness to breast cancer research.
Expect exceptional sweat management thanks to terry cloth pockets on both sides, wicking perspiration away from your body and keeping your sensitive skin dry. Breathable mesh fabric makes up the tailored back to cool you down as you work out. This is important as women experience hormone level changes and hot flushes following breast cancer treatment.
This bra’s top feature is its ergonomically padded shoulder straps, preventing slippage off your shoulder as you jog, cycle, or lift weights and minimizing breast bounce.
2. Marena Sports Bra for High Impact Workouts
If you’re ready to take on high-impact fitness activities, this Marena Sports Bra is a brilliant choice for support, comfort, and encouraging design. The front locking zipper provides easy closure, ideal for women whose muscles were affected by surgery or for those with limited mobility.
Seamless cups include pockets for your breast prosthesis, securely holding them in place so you can concentrate on your workout. The wide shoulder straps work in tandem with a smooth elastic band, creating a comfortable fit that prevents sliding up and down.
These sports bras are best for those who measure closely to the A/B and C/D bra sizes. If you need help to determine your size, consider working with a certified fitter at A Fitting Experience Mastectomy Shoppe.

For an adjustable fit, the Amoena Performance Sports Mastectomy Bra is a winner. Not only does it come with fully adjustable straps but also a rear, 3-way adjustable closure. This ensures minimal breast movement to avoid discomfort as you work out.
Ideal for intensive and high-impact workouts because of its extra support, you can count on this bra with pockets to keep your reconstructed breasts or breast forms secure. Each molded cup comes with reinforced side panels to add an additional level of support.
This Amoena bra feels soft against your skin as it is made of a smooth microfiber fabric that also contains wicking properties to keep you dry. Center, side, and back mesh panels allow for optimal breathability and help you regulate your body temperature.

The ABC Active Bra comes with removable cups and pads for a smooth silhouette. Its lightweight fabric keeps you dry, and carefully placed zipper coverings prevent skin irritation or snags on clothing.
Add color to your fitness outfit with the indigo lime version, or go for the more subtle beige option. A racerback design and rounded neckline add even more fun style to this sporty bra.
5. Coobie Fusion Yoga Bra
Add a bit of sexy support to your workout this year by wearing the Coobie Fusion Yoga Bra. For those looking for a sporty bra to wear during those downward dog yoga poses or walking around the track, this bra provides the right support and comfort level.
