Does anyone else encounter this problem? I’m quite a bit grander in the chesty department than average, and it makes exercises like running (I’m sorry, innocent bystanders!!) and push-ups (harder to come back up, lol!) not so fun. We’re talking multiple bras, sore tendons the morning after exercising, etc. *sigh*
What do you ladies do to help out with this issue? Are there any exercises you’d recommend to combat this?

I wear two sports bras. If I run I usually hold them (otherwise it’s uncomfortable).

Try a Moving Comfort bra, they’re great for bustiness. There is no need for two bras!!! They’re expensive – $50-$60, but totally worth it.

50-60 sounds about average for larger cup sizes- I’ve got on of those can’t-find-it-in-stores-because-the-band-size-is-too-small-and-the-cup-size-is-too-big deals going on. Hellooooo, online.. Although VS started carrying my size, which I was very surprised at. But sports bras are harder- not enough support. I usually end up doing two regular ones and a sports one to get a “grip”, so to speak.

I actually wear a bra in a size D (i’m a Dear Daughter so i go down a size cuz fabric stretches out) that clasps in the back (like a real bra) and has underwire.
On top of that I also wear a tank/workout shirt that has built-in support. When i do push ups my chest inevitably hits the floor so I do them on an incline. When i do chest presses, I touch the bar to my chest b/c otherwise I don’t really get a full extension.
If you wear too many bras they can cause extra pulling on your muscles. Tight isn’t always the best. I used to wear 2 sports bras until i discovered these! And I just wear the cheap Champion ones that are like $25 from Kohl’s. I always read the labels and make sure I buy the high impact ones. Then i do jump tests in the fitting room.
But wearing a form-fitting workout shirt with an extra panel in the top (the kinds where, if you weren’t busty, that’d be ALL you needed) really helps. I feel too floppy in a t-shirt
Now only if they made LONG work out shirts…sigh!
