Default Q for the ladies... :)

Ok, this may seem silly, but the more I exercise the more I notice my *uhm* girls need more support- has anyone come across a GREAT bra that they just can't live without. It's more the jogging and the jumping jacks and jump rope sort of exercises that make me want to use duct tape- LOL

I saw the Butterfly bra from Ashley Stewart- but I dont think that will help with the exercising and most sport bras that I try- don't help.

Suggestions or tips desperately needed!! Thanks

This thread has a long first post about buying sports bras:

Review: Sports Bras

Other posts on that thread recommend websites, etc.

Good luck! A supportive bra is really a necessity.

I use the cotton bras with no underwire from Lane Bryant....not technically sports bras but they fee like one They support them very well and cool to wear.

When I was younger and ran a lot I used to tape my breasts down with an ace bandage lol I also played soft ball & volleyball for school up until my first year of college.

Bob Harper once said that the ladies on Biggest Loser would often double up on their bras....wear two sports bras at once. I tried it and it works! I hate to spend a lot of money on bras that I won't wear for long. Being able to buy less expensive bras and still getting the support I need is an awesome bonus for me.

Rhonda, thanks for the suggestion of doubling up on the sports bras! I would never have thought of this on my own. I'm going to try it today before hitting the treadmill!

I use the Glamorise bras.. and also Moving Comfort. Yes, they are more expensive.. but they wick away moisture and keep the girls in their place. They also don't leave me with a uniboob. Uniboobs and shelves are bad. heh

So if you use two, how to you decide which 2? Like one for tightness in the waist and one for shoulders? I mean, wearing two of the same bra wouldn't make sense...?
I have a couple sports bras that are comfy for being around the house- but I don't know if they would add any support to my nice sports bra.

I used my cotton sports bra then an underwire sports bra lol Today I used my underwire one because its tighter, and the outer cotton sports bra tends to adjust easier lol I asked my sister and she uses a regular bra then a cotton sports bra lol

Default GREAT sports bra

I wear a 40F, and no sports bra ever worked for me until now. I bought a Benden sports, the straps can be straight or crossed. (I always wear them crossed) and have fabulous support, comfortably. They have several styles, I wear the underwire and love it! Not cheap, ($65 at Intimacy which is a small lingerie chain) but absolutely worth it.

My sports bras come from Walmart but are fairly well made. And, they are rated for heavy impact. I do wear two of the exact same kind and get tons of stability and support.
