With Sports Bras, Follow the Rule of Three

Schedule a Bra Fitting

The rule of three, law of three, or power of three is a writing principle that suggests that things that come in threes are funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers of things.

Well, this principle also applies to sports bras. Maybe not the funnier part, but following this simple principle will have your body feeling more satisfied and effective during your exercise. Here's what it means in terms of sports bras:

  1. One on BODY

  2. One in the WASH

  3. One READY to go

BONUS: How to Wash Your Sports Bra

  • Brooks recommends hand washing if you have the time, but if you plan to machine wash, it’s best to use the gentle or delicate cycle and be sure to fasten hooks or straps. Even better, place your sports bras into a lingerie wash bag.
  • For drying, heat from a machine dryer can take a toll on the fabric so we recommend air drying – or tumble dry on a low temperature.
  • For best results, use a gentle, lingerie-friendly detergent. Fabric softeners and dryer sheets can clog the fabric and shorten the life of your bra by limiting its ability to wick sweat and resist odors.
Follow this cycle and you'll be in your way to day-in, day-out comfort. Let's take a look at some of the leading sports bras and which situations they should be worn in.
