For all you well-endowed ladies, what sort of sports bra do you use?
I am a DDD/F, and right now the (sadly) only sports bra I have is a Champion Max 360. It works well, but since I’ve lost some weight, the girls spill out the top sometimes. I need a high-impact bra. Any suggestions?
ETA: Hey, that was my 200th post! Ummm.. yay boobies?

I am an aerobics instructor and I hate when other instructors are bouncing all over the place. No one needs to see that…
Anyway, go on the champion website. You type in your bra size and it will show you all the options and support levels available.

I’m not that big chested but I went from a small B to a big D after baby and I usually just wear 2 sports bras.

Shock Absorber!! I got one 6 years ago in the UK and it still looks brand new! http://www.shockabsorberusa.com/
They have all different intensities/sizes so you just choose what works for you.

Look into the Moving Comfort sports bras. I’m a 36F and they’ve been great for me!

I generally wear a G/DDDD (even when I was larger, but larger bands are easier to find in those cups).
Everyone tells me Enell is the way to go. I owned one when I was larger, and still had some motion. I wasn’t pleased, since it’s supposed to “stop all bounce”. I would have had to shell out an extra $20-25 for alterations to it, since I was at both extremes for the size I ordered.
I’ve been looking for a new sports bra, but all of the “DD friendly!” ones are useless, they’ve been a workout and a half to get into and out of, and once I’m in, I’m moving like basketballs on stairs. I tried the Endure by Underarmour at Dick’s (I was bored), it was mediocre, but not $50 dollars worth of mediocre. I liked the zip front one the best… you know, if it had worked/fit.
I’m looking at going back to Enell. If I go for the smaller size, I don’t move, but I poke out of the armpits. If I go for the larger size, I have a little bounce, but I don’t poke out everywhere.
Don’t let the clerk shoo you off if she’s stricken by your size. You may find something that works the way you want it to.

@sara_tiara: I love that it is called the “Ta Ta Tamer II” lol!
I don’t own any sports bras but I should. I’ve been noticing that I NEED them, and so does my daughter. We are both “blessed”. Thanks for the recommendations ladies!

@Ms. Martian: How do you find the fit on the Shock Absorber’s? Did the same size as your normal bra fit or did you have to go up at all (I tend to find I have to go up a size in sports bras)?
Those look really nice and I kind of want to try one.

2nd vote for shockabsorbers! i’m a 34F and do lots of high impact cardio and these are the only ones I wear. I got my regular size. They make your boobs look like madonna cone boobs a bit, but they keep the girls down and I can exercise.

I’m another 34F voting for Shock Absorber. They come up a little tight but I think that helps with support.

Thank you all for all the suggestions! I am going to check them all out!
I see Shock Absorber is the most popular! Do you all know of anywhere to try them on in person?

@sara_tiara: I second this! The tatatamer rocks! I am not overly huge, but my boobs are big for my smaller frame – I”m a very full 34C/ borderline D during my “high-hormones” time, and this sucker holds down the fort! And doesn’t give you uniboob:) I love lulelemon:) At first I was like “You want how much for this???” But it’s totally worth it! And you can wash everything a million times and it will not fade.
