    Sports Bras?

    Okay, typed that into the search tool sans question mark and got all kinds of threads but none that looked like they were specifically about sports bras, so link me if there are some that I missed.

    Looking into getting the Moving Comfort Fiona, as it was one of the brands recommended for larger busts, any ladies ever used the Moving Comfort brand? The one I have I got at Wal-Mart and it's starting to show some serious wear. I tried on the Under Armor Armour (think that's right?) and LOVED how it fit, but don't know if I want to spend $60 on something that I know will last but not sure how long I'll actually be in it. I'm a 36D right now, 36DD in VS bra (don't know if it makes any difference..)

    Yeah, larger here, too. No experience with Moving Comfort though. I've stuck with Champion because they've worked great for me. They have different levels of support and handy little charts that will tell you exactly how much support you'll get based on your size. Here's their max support line (and they're on sale right now, woohoo!):

    These look good. Do they have padding?

    Never used to care when I was in aerobics classes, but now I need something with more padding. My nipples show through once I sweat. I'm in the weight area and it gets a little weird with all the guys around.

    Of the couple that I've tried, this one's been the best in that department.

    All of my go-to sports bras are Champion at this point. Nike ones are good too, but the price-value-comfort match still goes to C9.

    My favorite of all time is this one:
    http://www.target.com/p/c9-by-champi...s/-/A-13953067

    It doesn't offer as much support (~medium support) as the ones itsagoodday recced, but it's great if you need something to easily transition from work to gym. I just wear this one under my professional clothing on workout days.

    I love that bra! But I'm far from qualified to weigh in on this topic since my boobs are tiny.

    The brand I have is Shock Absorber. I have a large chest and have not been able to find sports bras in stores around here that will fit me. Most stores don't carry my size and it makes it difficult to shop. For something like this we want bras that are well made, and are comfortable. When I have this bra on, the girls are going nowhere

    They run $60 on their website but are definitely worth it in my opinion. Best of luck.

    OH dear men, you know not what you ask, LOL. Let's just say time and being overweight (and pregnancy) have not been kind to the girls. One of the things I'll be having repaired once we're sure we're finished having kids :/

    Thanks again, ladies! I really don't want to spend as much as breakoutbras wants for theirs since I'm hoping I won't be in that size long-term. I'd prefer to keep it as close to $30 or under as I can, and still keep the quality. REALLY liking the way that Champion scoop neck looks...the one I have now is a Wal-Mart bra...Danskin, I think. It's held up well considering I didn't pay more than $15 for it and I've work it 3-4 days a week every week since Feb. or so.

    My boob issues have less to do with size and more to do with the post-breastfeeding sag factor
    Anyhow, I had been just using regular sports bras but was tired of having a uniboob. I recently tried a very supportive VS sports bra from their pink line. I LOVE it and returned to purchase two more. It supports and separates and is actually very flattering! They run about $32.
