    Default Sports bras

    Probably not the right section sorry mods. Can anyone recommend a good sports bra for bigger b00bs? My regular bra is 18E and at the moment I am wearing a regular bra with a crop from target over top of it but I am still getting a lot of bounce that hurts. I hate padding and underwire so would prefer to find one without them and I have looked at so many online I am even more confused then I was before! So far I like the look of the ones from running bare but am not sure if they are what I am after.

    I have a semi-sports one from Bonds. I wear it every day (it gets washed all the time) and it is amazing. It's the first underwire bra I have worn in 5 years so I was worried but you can't feel the wires at all. Mine is a 16E so similar sizing.

    I think it's this one

    I do walking and aerobic step everyday, and some jogging sometimes, I'm not sure how it holds up to more intensive exercise. I've never had a problem with those though.

    I personally prefer the Berlei tri-action sports bras. I am a DD so can't get away with crop top style bras. The Berlei ones have great support and have 3 levels - low impact, moderate impact and high impact. You can buy them from Myer, DJs and I even found some at the Bonds outlet at Harbour Town too. My best tip is to try them on in store before buying and do the bounce test. Jump up and down on the spot for 5-10 seconds. Will give you an idea of how much bounce you'll get.

    Oh, I've also heard people swear on the Intimo sports bras. I've never seen one or tried one on, but I do know people who would never buy another brand.

    I am one of those people!! The cross back bra is amazing.

    Absolutely LOVE my intimo sports bra. I was very skeptical as I am a 10e or 12f but it has been the most supportive and comfortable sports bra I have ever owned. Need to get more actualy.

    Victoria's Secret - fantastic for support and comfort. They have a sizing guide video on their website that is very accurate
