These 13 Zip-Up Sports Bras Are Chic & Functional

In my opinion, one of the fashion holy grails is finding the perfect sports bra that you can wear to any activity and feel comfortable, cute, and supported. Whether you're smaller chested or larger chested, finding a sports bra that supports you and looks cute can kind of seem like an impossible task. One of my favorite sports bra features? A cute zipper. They're functional, and they totally save you from the dreaded task of pulling your sports bra over your head after a sweaty workout. These 13 sports bras that zip up are going to get you through any workout while also making you feel so chic.

Is it just me, or have athletic clothes gotten way cuter over the past several years? From the athleisure trend to Beyonce's crazy popular Ivy Park collection, stores have been upping their workout clothes game in a major way. One of my favorite items to come out of this trend is the zip-front sports bra. It's a totally chic take on what can often look a little utilitarian, but in my opinion, there's nothing more stylish than a zip-up sports bra peeking out from under a workout tank or jacket. From basic black fabrics to colorblocked or neon styles, here are 13 great choices you need to shop now.
