Top 7 Best Longline Sports Bras for Women

Top 7 Best Longline Sports Bras for Women featured by top Dallas fashion blogger, Running in Heels.

Longline sports bras and crops have been my go-to lately for the yoga studio! I’ve been collecting them for several years, but they have really seemed to pop up in trends this spring and summer.

I have purchased several new longline sports bras recently, so I wanted to go through them and share my honest reviews. I am scoring each style on a 1-5 scale, 1 being disliked to 5 meaning loved, on three categories: comfort, which is self-explanatory, workout meaning how well it scores in different workouts, and style which includes coverage overall look.

I have tested each of these longline sports bras in the yoga studio, and some running, so I will note what types of activities they are good for. I should note that I am a 30C/32B, so I don’t need tons of support in my sports bras, but I prefer more than many people my size for my comfort level.

Alo Alosoft Lavish Bra

Comfort: 5
Workout: 5
Style: 5

This is my newest acquisition to my collection and it is absolutely my favorite piece! I love the cute styled back, and the longline style is perfect for so many activities. It has passed my hot yoga and active walking tests! It is super soft, but still sweat wicking. It is really my go-to bra for class these days!

Size: XS
Price: $54

Zella Studio Lite Longline Sports Bra

Comfort: 5
Workout: 5
Style: 5

This sports bra was top-scoring on everything for me. I wore loved it in yoga and feel very comfortable running in it. The top does not have a separate shelf bra, but overall fits well and supports. I love the neckline and racerback because it’s a simple style but still allows me to feel a little bit sexy even when I’m sweaty, which I think is great workout motivation when you already feel great!

This top only comes in black, but that is my favorite color for workout tops because it matches everything and hides sweat!

Size: XS
Price: $39

Amazon Lemedy Women’s Sports Bra

Comfort: 5
Workout: 3
Style: 4

I ordered this top specifically for this post. I have seen so many bloggers raving about it, I had to put it to the test! Upon first try-on it’s actually super comfortable and fits really well. It has a shelf-bra which usually isn’t my favorite, but this one is still comfortable. It scored top marks for comfort. Style got a 4 because it comes in tons of colors. I love the length, but it’s pretty basic.
Finally, for the workout category, it got a 3. The top is comfortable enough, but it is actually not very sweat-wicking which makes it not great for hot yoga or extreme sweat. I left my yoga class feeling gross and the top was soaked through. On the other hand, it’s great to wear and hang out in or for active walks on the trail.

I typically wear a size XS, but this top only came in S-XXL, so I chose S. It fits well, not too tight, and has a ton of stretch.

Size: Small
Price: $22.99

Free People FP Movement Ecology Bra

Comfort: 5
Workout: 3
Style: 2

This top is super soft, so it earned top points in the comfort category, however it is not my favorite style out of the group. The workout and style categories go hand in hand in this case. For both categories, you need another sports bra under this top. It has low support and might be ok for a slow flow or yin yoga class, but anything else won’t work. The perforation in the top is super cute, but combined with the lack of support, it doesn’t work out well. Lastly, the color of this top makes it a bit see-through, and since it has no padding, you’ll need another layer.

Size: XS
Price: $58

Outdoor Voices Athena Crop

Comfort: 5
Workout: 4
Style: 5

This was one of my first crops that I got years ago. I loved this Outdoor Voices set and everything the brand stood for. They are still a great brand, and as a marketer, I still love them, but this material is no longer my top choice due to my change in workout styles. When I wore this outfit most often I was doing more high-intensity workouts like the Sweat app’s BBG program, and running more often. Now you are much more likely to find me in the yoga studio, and I prefer a softer material, however I still love this top to run in!

Size: XS
Price: $48

Free People FP Movement Happiness Runs Crop Top

Comfort: 5
Workout: 5
Style: 5

This is actually one of my favorite tops to workout in and wear generally. It is so comfortable and looks so good in so many situations. I absolutely love the length and support.

As far as activity goes, this top is good for low-intensity workouts like yoga or hiking. I would likely add another layer for running or HIIT. The first few times I wore it, I actually wore a sports bra underneath, but I don’t think that it is necessary for low-intensity!

Size: XS
Price: $30

Zella Body Rhythm Sports Bra

Comfort: 4
Workout: 5
Style: 4

This is the most supportive sports bra in the set here. It is highly compressive, thicker material, and has quite thick padding for a sports bra. I would run in this and feel very comfortable. I gave it a 4 because it is a lot thicker than some other styles.

In terms of style, it comes in four additional colors, so there is awesome variety, and it has a cute sweetheart neckline, keyhole, and double strap detail. The only point off was because I love a detailed back, so just my personal preference.

Size: XS
Price: $25
