What is the best sports bra for large breasts?
I’ve recently started training for a team running relay and I’m a little concerned about my breasts. I’m a 36F and they really just seem to be bouncing all over the place! I’m wearing a sports bra, but it doesn’t seem to be providing a whole lot of support. So, who can tell me what is the best sports bra for large breasts?
The best sports bra for large breasts really depends on the woman. What you consider large may not be large for a different woman. There are some things to keep in mind for all women (and especially those who are bigger than a C cup):
Your breasts will move in three different planes of motion while you’re exercising:
1) Up and down
2) Left and right
3) In and out
You need to find a bra that minimizes motion in all directions. Your best bet is to find a bra that encapsulates and compresses. Most sports bras only compress. An encapsulation bra will enclose each breast in it’s own cup and reduces the side to side motion, while the compression will reduced the up and down motion.
Also important for ladies with large breasts are the band and straps. In both cases, the wider the better. Here are some great suggestions for larger ladies:
