Hi Ladies! I just started doing Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred (day four completed, I’m still sore, but I can now sit and stand without my quads screaming at me). The thing not improving? My sports bras!
I’m significantly overweight, but I bike and do yoga every day. My “over-the-should-boulder-holders” are great for those activities, but the jumping involved in 30DS is going to give me a black eye. I’m a 38-DDD, and I’m looking for a more supportive sports bra that will let me do jumping jacks, butt kicks, jump rope, etc. without having to duck my own breasts. Any suggestions, bees?

@AJWH1027: Moving Comfort makes really high quality sports bras. They don’t have cup size DDD, but they do have E. They come in varioua styles and are extremely supportive. If that doesn’t work, some women swear by Enell bras, though they are significantly more expensive.

Have you thought about trying Serena Williams bra line? I’m going to try them myself cause I have a big bust.

Shock Absorber! I’m in a G cup and love mine to pieces! Elomi Energise is also pretty good.

@AJWH1027: I am overweight with big boobs – probably 36F at this point, and I really like my Glamorise Women’s Plus-Size Double Layer Custom Control sport bra and my Panache Women’s Underwire Sports Bra. If I had to choose, I prefer the Glamorise b/c it’s more like a traditional sports bra as opposed to a regular bra and has more coverage.
I run 6.0 mph so I need something to contain my big girls. :/ They are the best bras I’ve ever tried – you’ll never get zero bounce unfortunately, but they do make a world of difference. I got them on Amazon.com, and it was $80 for both, so not too bad as just one goes for $60 or so at other places.

@AJWH1027: I second @kitkat2014‘s suggestion of Moving Comfort. They are a godsend for my HIIT workouts & running.

@AJWH1027: I LOVE the fiona bra by moving comfort. I can’t run or jump in anything else. I wore them when I was DD before I had breast reduction surgery. Even after the surgery when I was a C I just went out and bought the fiona bra in my new size because there is no bounce!

I’ve got a Freya sports bra that makes my 36DDDs not move at all even when jumping. It’s great, though it takes a bit of getting used to when you’re so used to counter-balancing the sway of your boobs.

I own one, and don’t need to hold anything with my hands during high-impact activities. I can run again!! I call it the “seat belt” but it looks like a bulletproof vest, hahaha!
It has 16 hook-and-eye closures on the front. It’s a bit tight when you start wearing it, but gets more comfortable over time.
It’s a bit tricky to figure out your size (it’s by band size only, and starts at 00 – not typical bra sizing), but the manufacturer’s website tries their hardest to help, and if you get in touch with them, they will be happy to help you with it!

I second ENELL, fabulous bra. I use it for running 🙂

@AJWH1027: I like the ArmourBra. I don’t know what size it goes up to but I am a 36D and it works great for me.

I second the shock absorber…but you have to get the good ones. I have this and LOVE it.
Sadly, I hate wearing ‘hockey equipment’ for sports bras, but it’s better than the alternative!
