seriously… exersizing with these watermelons is so annoying.I cant run. doesnt matter how tight the sports bra is no running for this girl.
also boob sweat. major boob sweat.
I want to lose weight to fot into my damn dress that i can barely wiggle on, and to stop hating my body and to make these things go down just a little bit. They have gotten even bigger since starting birth control ugh.
I’m super frustrated because i have seen no changes in my body at all (though aunt flow may be contributing to this week). and my effing BOOBS! sometime i want to rip the suckers off.
someone please tell me their boobs cause this much stress. oh and to make matters better it is commonly 110 where I live so exersizing or not… boob mother effing sweat.

This doesn’t address your sweat problem, but if jiggle’s a problem: I prefer the bike (or exercise bike).

i never feel like i work hard enough in the bike. The elliptical is mostly okay but they still jiggle. Mostly i dont like sitting in gym cloths because of fat rolls lol

This won’t completely mitigate the problem but do you wear high tech exercise clothes? There are clothes that are designed for various sweat reducing/airing out/supreme breathability/wicking functions and getting both a sports bra and a shirt that do those things might help. If you’re wearing a cotton shirt or a tight shirt, find a different one. My current fav workout shirt is from TJMaxx but it’s a high tech one- it is supposed to be ridiculously lightweight and the material is a weave of super narrow stripes that alternate between sheer and not sheer, so it’s really breathable without actually looking sheer (you can’t tell unless you hold it up to the light. Also, I prefer the kind of sports bras with the normal bra back closure rather than a racerback because the back is more airy.

The bike can give you a better workout than a lot of other cardio equipment if you choose the hill training program.
It keeps the bounce waaaay down if you wear an underwire bra underneath a sports bra… especially if the underwire bra is a pushup kind (I just old old ones that I don’t care about). It also helps if you use one of those clip things that turns your bra into a racerback.
I have big boobs, but my sweatiness is all in my crotch, which is terrible!

I hear you sister!!!! Im a 40G and they get in the way big time! I strap those suckers in tho. I wear two sports bras. I make sure one is the racer back and one is the traditional straps so it feels like there is more support no matter how i move. Ill toss on a tight tank that has those built in bras as well for when I run. It def keeps them in place and controls the sweating and stops the pain from them bouncing around.

@lampshade: do you use the sit down bikes, the one with big butt seats, or the stand up ones like spin class. and oh god crotch sweat. yep that is also annoying, boob sweat is way worse for me but I would never in a million years consider wear grey work out pants :/
@kgirl91: huh… I never really though about that… usually I wear just my PE shirts from highschool and black yoga pants. I’ll look into grown up work out clothes. Though I will most likely still look like I just stepped out from a shower 🙁

@Little_Hedgy: Techy clothes don’t tend to LOOK wet even if they are- esp black or dark colors. Whereas cotton definitely looks wet. And if you’re comfortable wearing shorts, try mesh basketball type shorts (I have some adorable dark pink ones from Adidas)- they are waaay airier than yoga pants. Personally, I’m more motivated to work out if I don’t feel disgusting, so I made the investment to get a couple nice shirts and shorts to make sure I’d be comfortable and presentable.

I agree with pp’s wear a breathable fabric – I borrow my FI’s t-shirts for the gym, to hide the fat rolls and guys t-shirts tend to have a better shape to hide “the girls”. I also wear a really supportive normal bra because I found that sports bras just squished me. I still haven’t found a remedy for icky boob sweat 🙁

You can’t exactly stop yourself from sweating. Sweating is good for you anyway.
As for holding them down, I typically only need one good sports bra (this one) when I’m doing my normal workouts, but I definitely double up for anything more intense. Either a workout tank with a built-in, or my other, underwire sports bra underneath that one (underwire for support, the other one for squish). I typically wear some mesh shorts and then a workout tank if I’m going to be where other people can see me.

There are sports bands (for lack of better word) that you place above your boobs to keep them down. I’ll have to look to see what brand mine is.

i wear three bras to stop the jiggle.. Im a 12dd/e. because I am still breast feeding they can still be really heavy too.
I usually wear a heavy duty sports bra, then two sporty crop tops on top. Its the only thing i found that stops the feeling that they are going to rip or jiggle off my chest as i exercise. they dont move at all… its great.

@Little_Hedgy: The spin-type bikes. We have those at my gym, and we have the ones that are like a chair with pedals, and the chair ones are too easy because you don’t have to hold yourself up and you can brace yourself against the seat back and end up doing less work.
