Brooks put an end to the term sports bra and launched the run bra. And women runners replied, ‘rightly so!’
With the expanded run bra collection, Brooks has put 40 years of bio-mechanical research to work. Alongside real runners’ insights they partnered with the Research Group in Breast Health at the University of Portsmouth (UK) to conduct bio-mechanical testing on a wide range of sizes.
From this data they now offer a new era in bras specifically developed for runners – the Drive and Dare Run Bra Collections.
Read on to learn more about which one will best suit your needs, shape and running style.
WOMEN ARE EQUAL, BUT DIFFERENT
Women runners are united in our joy of lacing up and putting one step in front of the other, but we differ in our physical shapes and sizes.
To offer a boob-inclusive run for all, both the Brooks collections offer a wide range of sizes to accommodate as many women runners as possible. Whether you want a compressive experience found in the Drive Collection or supportive encapsulation from the Dare collection, there is a run bra for you from Brooks.

BROOKS DARE RUN BRAS
The Brooks Dare run bras take a game-changing ‘one bra, two boobs’ approach.

With a molded, shaped support, the Dare Run Bras are for women who want shape, support and an unrestricted run. In a wide range of sizes accommodating A – DD cups, they bypass the uni-boob look by offering molded, shaped support.
As one JackRabbit tester noted, ‘It was literally game-changing when I upgraded to a bra that fitted correctly. Breathing was easier, I felt less compromised but still had all the support I need. I could PR by my bra choice alone!’
