You may be moving, grooving, and jumping during your workout, but your breasts shouldn't follow suit. To ban the bounce and up the comfort level of your sweat sessions, SHAPE testers put 30 new sports bras through their paces to find these standouts. Whatever your size or exercise preference, you'll find one that will leave you high and dry—which, when it comes to boobs, is a very good thing.

In case you can't decide on your ideal match, everyone from yogis to CrossFitters raved about the Victoria's Secret VSX Incredible Bra (left, $50; ). Reviewers called it "super-flattering" (no uniboob!) and "surprisingly supportive."

Adjust the size at the shoulders and band for a customized fit. "It's snug but doesn't create back-fat bulge," said one reviewer. Mesh panels left another "dry, even after a long tennis match." ($38;
