The best sports bras for bigger-busted women

Sports bras are an unpleasant necessity of life. They chafe and bind, or they fail to support and you spend your run hoping your breasts don’t hit you in the chin. Finding the right fit, especially if you’re big-busted, can be a real challenge. It’s worth taking the time to find a good supportive bra, though, since the right fit can be the difference between continuing to work out and quitting in frustration. If you’re big busted even a yoga bra needs to have adequate support, and those dainty straps that are so in-fashion may cut and pinch. These three bras will keep you moving and supported in style.

A common complaint with sports bras is that they just aren’t comfortable. The Spot Comfort Full-Support Bra from Champion puts “comfort” right in the name, and this bra really delivers. The gel-infused straps won’t cut into your skin like lesser bras, and the straps are adjustable to help you find that perfect fit. The mesh panels above the breasts and along the neckline keep you cool, and there’s a hook and eye closure to help with fit and make it easier to remove the bra after a sweaty workout. Not satisfied with just being comfortable, the Spot Comfort bra has molded cups that both support and flatter; there’s no unattractive uni-boob with this bra. According to Champion the bra provides maximum support for C-D cups, and high support for DD-DDD sizes. The bra is also available in a ton of cute color combinations, so you can coordinate with your other workout apparel.

The non-removable molded cups provide firm support and have just enough padding to keep you covered, plus there’s no underwire to dig into your flesh.

The Wacoal Women’s Underwire Sport Bra is the holy grail of sports bras. It’s so incredibly supportive, comfortable and flattering that one reviewer insists the designer should receive the Nobel Prize. Ingeniously, the floating underwire is on the outside of the breast cups, so it won’t rub against your skin and chafe. The bra comes in a wide variety of sizes and G and H cups have a hidden inner sling for extra support. There is a breathable mesh back, and the straps have a slide-and-hook adjustment feature that won’t shift on its own during your workout. Like the other bras reviewed here, the Wacoal bra has a hook and eye closure for fit and ease in removal. While it may not be the most fashionable bra out there, it does come in a wide variety of colors, and it does its job extraordinarily well. Yes, it is more expensive than other options, but its fans insist the Wacoal bra is totally worth it.
