During quarantine, I, like many others, got into a routine of following a home workout routine to stay active, and I gravitated towards HIIT. However, I quickly realized that not only did I not have the space for a dedicated workout area, but also that none of my sports bras were supportive enough for my new fitness journey and all of the jump squats, burpees, and planks that came with it. And let's be real, nothing derails a workout quite like fussing with an ill-fitting sports bra.

Eager to part ways with the unsupportive and over-worn activewear that made up my collection, I began researching high-impact sports bras and wasn't really impressed with the options available; I'm a 36D, and let's just say there weren't many that passed the "bounce test." After adding other equally high-bounce activities such as running and Zumba to my fitness repertoire, I still hadn't found a sports bra that could contain my boobs without constant readjusting. That was until I discovered the ThirdLove Kinetic Impact Sports Bra (Buy It, $70, thirdlove.com).

Featured in the fan-favorite bra company's newly launched athletic collection, the sports bra delivers support and comfort with its full-coverage contour cups and wireless design, which give you the flexibility needed to nail each move without worrying about boob slippage or uncomfortable digs and pinches.

The contoured fit is actually my favorite part of the sports bra; it gives my boobs structure (read: no uniboob) and keeps them in place. Since it follows my band and cup size instead of grouping me into L or XL fit, the Kinetic Impact Sports Bra minimizes boob overflow and gaping. Not to mention, it gives the girls an incredible lift and has a smoothing effect as well. And, the cups are thick enough that I don't have to worry about my nipples showing through the bra or my shirt.

Despite its lightweight construction, it is very much a high-impact sports bra. So much so that my boob bounce wasn't on my radar during a very jumpin' jumpin' Beyoncé-inspired Zumba class. It's also made from breathable fabric and has convertible wide straps for added support that can be customized based on your preferences and workouts — I've been finding the standard fit to be adequately supportive, but it's nice to know that I could fasten the straps to a racerback if needed. It's like two bras in one!

Plus, anyone with large boobs knows that one of the major pain points with sports bras is having to pull them over your head and chest. The good news is that the ThirdLove sports bra has a hook-and-eye closure that makes for easy putting on and taking off, and especially comes in handy on arm day when the last thing you want to do is lift your sweaty bra over your head.

Even though the activewear collection just launched, the Kinetic Impact Sports Bra has already gained traction among ThirdLove shoppers for being super comfy and eliminating bounce. One reviewer wrote: "It allows the wearer to release boundless energy during her workout without concerns of breast discomfort and excessive movement. The twin sisters stay in place — no bouncing! I'm particularly pleased this bra also provides separation, thus eliminating that uniboob effect characteristic of so many sports bras. Most impressively, it's comfortable! It doesn't bind nor chafe, and [there's] no moisture collection!"

The ThirdLove Kinetic Impact Sports Bra comes in band sizes 32 through 38, cup sizes A through G, and five trendy color combinations. Give my favorite sports bra a try, or check out the brand's low-mid impact strappy option and mid-high impact seamless pick that make up the activewear collection. (Psst, they also have matching workout leggings with pockets.)
