Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
A good sports bras is both supportive and comfortable. The features of the Dr.Linderbra include those features as well as soft elastic waistline band and adjustability along the sides up to 1 and a half inches. This is important for pregnancy, post-operative swelling and during your menstrual cycle. The bra should be soft to the skin with Bi-directional strecth. Razor back support and reinforced front zipper is also important. 

 
A good sports bra should fit well, be the correct size, be comfortable, offer adequate support, wick sweat, control moisture, minimize chafing, be adjustable, and have smooth seams.
