Default Sports bra?

Just looking for some input on your favorite plus size sports bras that held the puppies down? I'm about a 46C now, so I've checked Lane Bryant and didn't see many to choose from. Any ideas? Thanks!

May sound weird but Wal-Mart has a sports bra that isn't bad. I was a 42C and it worked well for me. I think it was actually a Fruit of the Loom.

Totally forgot about good ole Walmart! I just checked the site and they have 97 cent shipping too! Thanks for saving me 60 bucks!

I've had MANY MANY MANY issues with sports bras. i've tried so many its absolutely insane. I am currently a 40DD. I have hated every one UNTIL I found this one. The 2 best things...1. it gives very good support, keeps the girls in place and 2. NO UNIBOOB! I HATE uniboob! Anyway it's the Maia and I personally got it from a friends running store near me, so i know they sell them besides online, but the link for the one I have is http://www.movingcomfort.com/Maia/35...efault,pd.html I can't vouch for any of the other designs as I only have 2 of the same ones, but I LOVE the ones i have! It cost about 50 bucks, but worth every single penny! My husband used to laugh and tell me i was going to give myself a black eye...well not anymore...these puppies stay put!

Guess the question is what is it you need to do in it? If you are running you are going to need something stronger than Walmart sells ,if you just want it for light exercise or hanging out it will be ok. I agree with DB1982 I pay about $50. For mine also I wear a different Moving Comfort one....I run and am a 36dd need to stap the puppies down for ANY high impact.It makes the world of difference I use to wear 2or3 of the cheap ones YES at the same time.

I recommend enell bras for very large chests that need to stay put during running/jumping.

The Enell bras I tried on didn't fit me--I was between their sizes. However, even the 'too big in the cup' one clearly held me well.

I bought a Goddess Bra ($50) that does a great job--I actually did jumping jacks in the dressing room to make sure that it would support me.

I throw a Champion brand one from Target over my regular lined t-shirt bra and it holds well enough for my 40G's.

I bought an Enell sportsbra recently and just started to break it in. Holy crap, 11 hooks and it really holds you in. I'm a 38DDD and I look dang near flat chested in this puppy. It's good for running, even though breathing is a bit of a chore at first. I just hope it doesn't break a rib or something...
