Sports Bras For the Well-Endowed

Favorite Excuse Not to Run: It Hurts My Chest

If you gave running a try, but you felt self-conscious about all the action in your front section, or it left your chest in too much pain to enjoy it, then you're not alone. That's why sports bras were invented in the first place — to keep the bouncing at bay. However, not all sports bras are created equal, and the one you're wearing now may not be offering you enough support. Check these out.


This is the Champion Action Sports Bra ($29.99) and it means business. Even though it looks like a real bra, underwire and all, it offers amazing support for someone with a C cup or smaller. The two padded cups support each individual breast, and the back closure allows you to adjust how tight you want it. Plus the material has wicking properties to help you stay dry.

I love the name of this Title 9 bra — Cuz-She-Says-So Underwire Bra ($39). The underwire offers definition, but the powermesh material and stabilization panels offer maximum support (and no bounce). It's recommended for C, D, and DD cups.

If you're not into underwire, then check out the Fiona Bra ($44) made by Moving Comfort. It's a little pricey, but totally worth it for the ladies with C, D, or DD cup sizes. We're talking intense support here, since it has adjustable straps and three rows of hook and eyes in the back, so you can get a snug fit. There are interior molded cups to support each breast individually, but it also has material across the chest to discourage your breasts from bouncing. Also, since it's so high-cut in the chest, you don't have to worry about exposing your cleavage.

Fit's Tips: If a sports bra and t-shirt aren't cutting it when it comes to support, then you may need to double up. Slip on your sports bra and layer a tank top over it (one that has a shelf-bra sewn in), and that should help keep everything in its place.
