Ok….soo I am getting into fitness again….and thus far I LOVE working out 3-4 times a week depending on my work schedule that week (BOOO night shift!)! However! I have 2 very large problems!!!
My boobs….they hurt alot to run or do cardio with and i HATE them flopping everywhere!! as I am at my heaviest now and they are a little larger then normal….before the weight gain i wore a 36 DD now I am at a 38 DDD/F depending on the size chart…..they hurt alot before the weight gain….
what i used to do when i played softball, basketball, or volleyball, was well i either strapped them into 1 super tight sports bra, followed by a not as tight but more supportive sports bra and then finally a long sports bra that fit well….or i would wear my regular minimizer bra under my sports bra and at times have ace wrapped them down for comfort when jumping alot (mainly did this during volleyball season….because ouchie on jumping all the time with them flopping everywhere!)
Now….as I am older I realize that was probably not the best way to go as far as comfort breast and respiratory health…..as it did sometimes make it alittle hard to get deep breaths and comfort was out the doort….plus HELLLO ACNE! ugh not cute to have a zit on your cleavage….just saying
What I want now….is something that breathes well, can control the girls, and is COMFORTABLE! I can deal with sweaty boobs if need be but i really want something that can strap these babies in place when i run, do zumba or different fitness classes…..
any suggestions??? also food for thought why is a good sports bra sooo hard to find! Ugh!

@kansas_nurse: ENELL. Hands down! NOTHING will move. At ALL.
Some people also like Lululemon’s, since they make different levels of control for the different cup sizes!

I have to second the Enell bra. They are pricey, but worth it. When I entered the police academy, it’s the only thing that would keep the girls in place!

I really like the brand Moving Comfort. Super good quality and well priced. I don’t even have the high level support ones and am super happy with the support they give!

Moving Comfort – preferably the Juno bc you can adjust the straps and the back. it’s incredibly supportive, my boobs barely move. And I get the 34DD (but in regular bras, I wear a 34H right now).

@kansas_nurse: I LOVE the Moving Comfort Juno. It is the best bra, ever. The (rather large) girls don’t move at all! Yet somehow, it doesn’t feel super constricting. It’s magical.

@kansas_nurse: before my breast reduction, i was a 32F. let me tell you, it was hard finding bras that supported enough. when i was in high school, i would sometimes wear 2 sports bras with a super tight tank top that had a built in bra over it so i could play sports.
in later years but still before my reduction, i found the champion underwire sports bras and moving comfort sports bras were the best. i needed to make sure they had adjustable straps because my chest was much larger than my tiny shoulders could support and i always needed to make it tighter.
a few people mentioned ENELL. after Oprah swore by them, I tried one and didn’t like it. all bras are a matter of personal preference. try them on, jump around in the dressing room and see what is comfortable.
