Workouts don’t require an iPhone, but there are plenty of times when a locker room isn’t an option and a fanny pack isn’t for everyone (even though they’ve been making a comeback for nearly a decade). Plus, many of us use our phones for music or need them for in-case-of-emergency calls. Running tights with a pocket are standard, but once you’ve zipped away other essentials like keys and cash, there isn’t always room for a mobile device.
That’s why many of us have gotten used to shoving our phone in our sports bra, but this is problematic for a number of reasons. It’s totally distracting, doesn’t allow for high intensity activity and is possibly compromising our health. While studies are limited, it’s widely believed that the soft, fatty tissue of breasts readily absorbs radiation from phones so you should never store your phone directly on your body.
Bearing that in mind, we’ve rounded up sports bras with built-in pockets and one sweat-resistant pouch so you can stop stuffing your phone in your bust and start working out completely unencumbered.
