The adidas Statement Collection offers stand-out looks that have been curated for women who want to take a different approach to training and who demand performance wear to be as versatile as they are.

The collection is built around three sports bras: “All Me,” which offers support for smaller cup sizes and comes with different strap styles and removable padding; “Don’t Rest,” which has mid-level compression and anti-bounce support for bra cup sizes A to C; and “Stronger For It” that has a high-level support system for larger cup sizes and a built-in shape to limit bouncing during workouts. It also has adjustable and convertible straps for customized styling.
