Can anyone recommend a good sports bra for larger breasts? I wear a 36DD. I'd like a sports bra that is supportive, with a little lift, and doesn't give you the squished uni-boob look? Any help?

I love the one I have, it's the best I've ever found, but have no idea what it is. I got it from Walmart and it zips up in the front. Wish I could help more!

I wish I could help! (And I wish I were "just" a 36dd! I'm like a 40F)

I'm a 34DD and I just got a Fiona by Moving Comfort that I love love love love love. I've had others that were nice - a zip front by Champion, a Champion that hooked in the back and had underwire that was designed for high impact sports like soccer, but I love this Fiona.

I got mine at a dedicated running store, but they have it lots of places.

ENELL. Ok, so I'm mildly obsessed, but they really do keep the girls in place. They do get somewhat flattened or shrunk or however you want to put it, but I've never really had the unfortunate 'uniboob' while wearing it. I've tried nearly everything and the enell bra is the only thing that has given me the support to not be heaving and uncomfortable in high impact aerobics classes.

Another vote for Moving Comfort! I can't remember if my current or past one was the Fiona or not. Previous one wasn't underwire but I just bought an underwire one from Moving Comfort and love it!! I'm a 38D

I'm 36 F, and I love my Freya. I get a bit of squishage, but no monobosom.

Thanks! I'm gonna have to look into some of these. I want something that doesn't flatten the boobs too much but also doesn't just leave 'em swinging everywhere!

36D here and have had really good luck with Moving Comfort - Maia and Athena absolute best was Thea by same company but, alas, that one was discontinued. If I had known I would have bought all they had! :D:D:D

I don't know who makes mine, I got it off ebay for like 8.00 new. Wasn't expecting much. It's awesome! Really holds me in, and is even kinda pretty. (Has seperate cups for the ladies so no uniboobie) I am shocked. Now I'll just have to see how many washings it indures before it falls apart.

ENELL!! ENELL!! ENELL!! Seriously I cant shout it enough from the roof tops. I finally got one for Christmas and It has changed my life in so many ways. I always ATTEMPTED to jog with 2 sports bra and only gave up because of the pain. My loving sister got me one for Christmas and I wear it ALL the time. Seriously I even wear it around the house sometimes(its comfy). Im a 34FF so I understand how you feel completely. Just find something your comfortable with but IMHO I would get an Enell! They aren't very attractive and you cant get away with tank tops unless there like jersey types or it shows underneath but my boobs are happy so I can deal with not being cute while working out lol.

Nike Dri Fit. Awesome! Looks like a sports bra, but has separate cups sewn in. I wear it alot, even if I'm not working out. I got mine at Academy. I've had trouble finding sports bras that don't cost an arm and a leg but that are supportive and don't give the "uni-boob" look, too. I am currently 38-40D.


(Just a link for an idea on what they look like, I didn't get the Livestrong style.)

I'm a 38DD LOOOOONNNG! Yeah, I'm old, gravity bites. After much searching I think no such thing exists. If I had the money, I'd design the darn things, and you could all do my quality control! :hug::carrot::D

Ok, the above said, although I've never ordered any, the Title 9 (9 in Roman numerals) catalog has a selection that does look promising.

I'm a short lady, with 38I boobs :lol:

Nothing is as supportive or separating with the girls as an Elomi.

I have SO much separation and lift that I could wear this bra as an everyday bra, no problem.

Second vote for Title 9 (titlenine.com) - because of the customer service. Those ladies are hardcore - they test all the bras themselves, they've even designed a couple, and you can talk boobage with them regarding any sport that's ever been invented, and you will find somebody there with your shape who's done that sport.

Another vote for the Fiona by Moving Comfort. I'm a 34DD (formerly 36DD) and it's the ONLY one that has ever worked for me. Use Froogle to find the best price online. My search is over--this is the only sports bra I will ever buy!

Underarmour sports bras are awesome b/c they offer A LOT of support w/o the uniboob effect. :)

I am a 34DD and I like this one by Donna Karen best. I also have a Freya active underwire sports bra that keeps me lifted and seperated and in place while running but I don't care for how the seams show through some of my tops. I also like the Scoop Underwire by Champion. Haven't tried any non-underwires because I have always thought I had to have an underwire but now I am starting to wonder if some of the nonunderwires might be designed well enough that I should try them
