When it comes to running, a comfy and supportive sports bra is as essential a piece of equipment as good sneakers. Our readers weigh in.

FITNESS readers throw their support behind these three sports bras:

For Running

Nike Revolutionary Support Bra ($70; Available in cup sizes 34B to 40D)

"This ultra-lightweight bra gave me all the support I could ever need during my run. It adjusts in three different places for a perfect fit, even between the breasts. And the best part -- no uniboob! After I'd run 13 miles, the fabric had wicked away most of my sweat so I felt dry without any chafing at all."

For Spinning

NuMetrex ($99 with transmitter and display watch, $45 without; Available in sizes S to XL)

"As a cycling instructor, I was thrilled that this sports bra has a built-in heart-rate monitor. Instead of a clunky chest strap, there are tiny sensors embedded into the material. These receptors gave consistent readings, but only after I worked up a sweat and they were wet. Plus, it offered amazing support!"

For Tennis

CW-X Firm Support Bra ($52; Available in sizes 32B/C to 38D)

"I'm large-breasted, so finding a truly comfortable sports bra is a challenge. But this one was great -- the seamless fabric felt so good I forgot I even had it on. It maintained its support after washing and the higher neckline prevented bounce during matches. My only complaint: It's a struggle to get on, but it's still worth it to me."

You might want to take a look at Breeze Comfort sports bras. The bras are made with patented bra pad technology. The bra pads have perforations throughout to facilitate air circulation to the breast area. This helps release heat and helps prevent sponge effect (sweat collecting in the traditional bra pads). Letting toxins out of your body more efficiently through breathable clothing is very important to general breast health.
