Rockwear

While Rockwear can tend to be a bit more on the expensive side, you’ll never doubt the quality of their products. They also quite helpfully sort a lot of their products into the kind of exercise you do the most, such as ‘high impact’ sports bras, which are for running and intense cross-fit training, whereas ‘medium’ and ‘low’ impact are suited to slower, less vigorous exercise. They also have some really stunning colours and prints available!
