Sports Bra - Monday Market of the Week

Sports bras should make up an essential part of any women’s sports kit for the gym or other sporting activities. They are generally designed to compress or to provide a protective capsule for the breast.

Using our SaleHoo Research Lab let's check if sports bra is a promising niche to explore.

Sell-through Rate: Did you really find a hot niche?

Seeing that sports bras have a sell-through rate of 53.26% we have definitely found a promising one!

It’s always best to consider products with a sell-through rate not lower than 50%.

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

For the month of March the median end price for sports bras is $14.42. Remember that the median end price on eBay can be ambiguous because the median end price is for all listings which can include bulk listings that sell two or more sports bras in a single listing. This can skew our data.

To give you a better idea of what sports bras are selling at, I have added the Research Lab’s snapshot below. The average price of a pair of sports bras is $28.00 while the average Buy It Now price is $20, both far higher than the recorded median end price.

Total Listings, Total Bids and Total Sellers: How viable is your market?

Currently there are 11,838 listings by 7,680 sellers on eBay for sports bras, at a quick glance you might immediately have second thoughts of pursuing this products thinking the market may be too saturated.

But if you look closely, there are almost twice as many bids as there are listings! For the month of March alone there are 22,883 bids for sports bras. That's a lot of interested buyers!

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

eBay sellers are definitely hitting their target, looking at the graph above you’ll easily see that last April 14th the highest total revenue was recorded at $11,751.66 while the lowest total revenue is not even that low at $4,028.52.

Sellers are certainly selling them like hot potatoes!

Now let’s check if the popularity of sports bras goes beyond eBay. Using our very own free SEO software, Traffic Travis, we can do a quick keyword research to see how many searches are made for sports bra. Visit and download your own Traffic Travis software today.

I've checked this niche out and the only thing is most of the sales on eBay are name brands like lululemon, Hanes, and Nike. hope the support staff can find a good supplier this would really be a hot item if we can get a good wholesale price I would even be willing to invest 400 or 500 in to this one maybe more ,very good research results. best regards DB
