I don’t have an enormous chest – I’m a 36D, but I still found myself avoiding more strenuous exercise because I didn’t want to deal with the pain and or the embarassment of having to hold my chest when I did jumping jacks. I recently started exercising and after two weeks of less strenuous exercise, I started doing research into better sports bra – and I found the Champion power back.
It’s not the easiest bra to get into, but once it’s on, I can keep up with Jillian Michaels rather than quitting halfway through!
What’s the best sports bra you’ve found?

Might have to seek out one of those, I do a full workout but there’s no jogging or running in it because of my girls! I found the Berlei shock absorber ok, but still not enough. Annoying, isn’t it!

@aunt pol: Horribly annoying! I saw the shock absorber, but I’ll admit I wasn’t willing to pay that much for a bra.

I love shock absorber. I get the ones for super heavy excersice and the ones for less intesive excercise. I like them both. You can get them on ebay for less than what yo uwould pay in stores.

I absolutely love Victoria’s Secret sports bras that have little fasteners on the side. Not a thing in the world is moving under that bra.

I MUST look into this! I’m wearing 2-3 sport bras right now cause I can’t reall seem to find one that offers enough support. Sigh. 36DDs are awful, I want a reduction but I have such a low pain tolerance that the recovery would be a bitch!

I love Moving Comfort sports bras! Yes, they are expensive. The investment is totally worth it to be able to run without grabbing my boobs or dealing with the bounce!

I must also look into this! I usually double up too – it seems to be the only way to control the ladies from going all over the place!

@KMSull: Yeah the recovery is not enjoyable. My mom had a reduction and she had to have drains and everything. Yuck.

I think I have this one too (the champion one)! There are no logos on mine so I can’t be sure. Mine is difficult to get in and out of too at first, because it is not stretchy and has a hook and eye back, but it got much better as I got more used to it. My ladies still bounce, but not as much 🙂

Considering most companies don’t make sports bras (or any bras) for 32G/H I’m greatful when I find ones that do a moderate job at reducing the bounce in a size that is close- though watching videos of me ride is the funniest thing ever and I’m just greatful they move in unison.
Solid Tech Athena Bra
Both from Title Nine, they do a decent job. I just hate the seams across the bust.

@Dragonsus: Do you have a link to the website? I need that bra!
I always double up or triple up–I would love to get the link for this one. Thank you!
