Will the Itty Bitty Titty Committee please stand up?! Small-chested ladies, I’m talking to you! There are plenty of pros to having smaller boobs: the ability to go braless without anyone noticing, looking bomb in deep V necklines with zero fear of a nip slip, and the luxury of being able to easily find sports bras for small chests. The only issue, it seems, is avoiding ending up with a traditional low-support bra that looks more like a teen’s training bra than something fit for an adult. Admit it: you’ve got at least one of these unsightly sports bras pushed to the back of your drawer as you read this. Maybe more!

As a small-chested girl myself, I often pass lazy days with my girls hanging free, but when I want a little more support during errands or workouts, I opt for a comfortable, non-restrictive sports bra. My favorite kind of sports bra is one with a little bit extra length around the torso, so that it resembles a cute crop top more than a training bra. This silhouette allows me to move freely without worrying about how I’ll look if my shirt flops over my face during yoga or midway through the TikTok dance I’ve been trying to film all day. Longline bras also accentuates your waist, giving you a lil extra boost of confidence, should you need it.

That’s not to say I never wear a traditional sports bra, though. I have plenty, and I reach for these far more than my traditional bras, which might as well be gathering dust at this point. Viva la sports bra! If you’re also on Team Comfy, you’ll find that there’s a whole world of sports bras and supportive crop tops out there to make you feel like your best self. Read on to shop some of my faves.

Athleta Conscious Crop

This piece looks more like a crop top than a traditional bra, thanks to the high neck and longer silhouette. Still, it offers enough support to not need another sports bra layered underneath.

The super soft fabric on this option from Free People’s FP Movement workout line is created with small cup sizes in mind. This sports bra will keep you in check thanks to the slightly thicker straps, but the deep v-neck design gives it serious style points.

When support isn’t really an issue, you can have some fun. The collared design on this sports bra means that will transition perfectly into your wardrobe after you leave the gym, but the lightweight ribbed knit fabric offers just enough support during your workout routine.
