For a slimmer design, look to this bra (in a cool lilac, no less). The thin straps may be low profile, but they don’t offer any less support—in fact, this little number offers breathable compression. It’s made with the brand’s signature Powervita™ fabric, too—more on that below.

Powervita™ is Athleta Girl’s softest and most buttery fabric, so rest assured knowing she’s guaranteed to love this pair. Not only is the rich teal exactly the kind of color pop that makes an outfit, but she’ll also appreciate the fully adjustable drawcord, pockets and mesh detailing at the hem. Moisture-wicking, UPF 50+, quick-drying…you know the drill.
