Working out has never looked and felt so good!

Cotton On Body Launches High Impact Sports Bra

There are few things as irritating as a sports bra that doesn’t offer the support you need during an intense workout. The last thing you need while exercising is feeling uncomfortable. Well, Cotton On Body has the answer – with mesh panels and no underwire for extra support, as well as padded straps for comfort, their high impact sports bra moves with your body and keeps you cool while you focus on your workout.

The sports bra is available in ten different prints and colours with matching shorts and tights (we love a fresh gym outfit!) and is available at Cotton On and Cotton On Body stores, as well as online at www.cotttonon.com/za
