You might want to consider applying Body Glide on your skin before exercising, especially in hot weather.

I have this issue too.  I think the Body Glide or some baby powder is a good idea.

I definitely have problems with sports bras as I am larger chested.  I would suggest looking for a very comfortable one that is someone less covering and one that is larger and covers more. Be prepared you may need to wear both at once to be truly comfortable and not bouncing.

Is it too small? What kind of material is it?

I can’t really tell, is it just indentations, or is there also a rash?

I agree that it looks like it may have been too tight.  I second the Body Glide rec as well.

For any larger chested ladies, you MUST check out Moving Comfort sports bras (you can also find them under the Title IV name on Title IV).  They are completely amazing… I especially love the Fiona, which lets you easily change the tension in the straps (because you need more for running than for yoga, you know?).

I agree! Title 9 is great (especially for a busty lady)– they have tons of variety and an excellent return policy.

I actually have SCARS from a strapless bra that I wore to a friend’s wedding, so I can understand your bra troubles.  I’ve also struggled with finding good sports bras and I’ve found that I can’t go by the traditional bra sizing when buying sports bras (they never seem to fit right).  I swear by the two-pack of cheap hanes sports bras I got at target (they’re cottony, not that shiny spandex material and have a ruched line that goes up the front).  I always buy them at least a size bigger than what I really wear so they don’t dig in as much, and I wear them both at the same time – one over the other.  As I runner, I’ve never been able to wear just one sports bra and feel “supported” enough.  I’ve tried a bunch of different sports bras and it’s really the only thing that has worked for me.

I just found Handful Bra’s a few weeks ago: http://www.handfulinc.com

I’m a 36D, so I know how hard it is to find a decent sports bra, and this one is great!  The criss-cross back gives me excellent upper back movement (great for tennis, I would think) and it’s got fabulous support.

I heart.

I play tennis, too, and my current favorite of my large collection of sports bras is a high-impact Danskin one from Wal-Mart.  I think I paid about $10 for it.  I use it for running, too, and I don’t bounce at all.

I’ve done the two (sometimes three) bra thing in the past, and it still wasn’t enough support.

I’m a 36D.
