"I have a hard time finding a sports bra that's true to size. What can I do?" - TJ, Reno, Nevada

Most people don't realize that there are two types of sports bras - encapsulation, which mimics a regular bra and has separate "cups," and compression, which is your typical sports bra.

That way, you will get the truest fit.
