Welcome shimi!

I'm a fellow Londoner, where abouts in London are you?

As for plus sized sports gear, Evans do have a sporty range, or you could try H&M they have a sports section and a plus size section, but not sure if the 2 overlap.

Oh and there's always e-bay!

Default cheers for the suggestion

Thanks for the reply 2frustrated. I live not far from Tower Bridge. I Just started dieting again (actually, I don't like the word 'diet' - it makes me stressed , lets call it healthy life style ) and I wanted to get a good sport's bra for exercise. I have been to the usual fatty clothes shops (Evans etc.) and the ones that pretend to be non-discriminating against bigger people like M&S and New Look but I couldn't find any. I guess I'll have to find one on the net.... the problem with buying clothes on the net is that you can't try it on first and I hate the returning process...

Anyways, thanks a lot for trying to help.

Cheers,
Shimi

Have you tried Berlie Shock Absorber bras? I think they go up to at least an E cup, if not bigger. They are the greatest

You are very london aren't you? Tower Bridge...

Hi and welcome!

I got a couple of Shock Absorber bras on eBay for £7.99 each (incredibly comfortable) - you need to browse around and check out all the sellers to get a good bargain. I think they are usually about £20 to £23 in the shops.

Decathlon do big sizes in sports bras can't vouch for how supportive they are though. THey had them in sizes I didn't even know existed when I went in the other week don't know about london though and when I tried on my regular size it was huge so they obviously come up big too.

I got my sports bras from Marks & SPencer 40E cup, no less!

Of coruse Evans do sports stuff as mentioned. Marks go up to 22 but you need a big size store to get the range. Next do stuff up to 20/22 but it is hard finding it in the shops but look online.
