I wear an Adidas Liatris bra for running and exercising. It's available online from Nordstrom, although you may find it cheaper elsewhere. I'm a 38DD and it gives me good support. I used to wear a 40D, and a bra fitter told me I was wearing the wrong size. This one fits much better.

I'm a 38D and I know this sounds crazy, but my favorite sports bra is a size large from Everlast. If you are a DD you might try the XL. Walmart sells then for 10 bucks! So if you try it and don't like it, well at least it was only 10 bucks. I also have a nike one and an underarmor one. I like these, but they aren't my favorite.

You can try Cacique, too. It's a brand by Lane Bryant. I'm a 38DD and their sports bras work well for me. But now I wanna try this Enell bra that everyone in here's talking about, lol.

I used to work at LB, so I had my own little stash of Cacique. While I love the brand (I'm a balconette junkie, can't wait to get home to find two more waiting on my doorstep, in fact), I just can't do their sports bras. There's too much elasticity. I honestly thought that I just hated exercise because I was fat, and there wasn't much I could do about that fact unless I lost weight. But I tried out the Enell and realized that my real problem was my bra. It straightens my back and straps my boobs down. My 44 DD-DDDs are held in so tight that I end up with the chest of a teenage boy. Not great to wear on dates, but it's a true savior when it comes to working out.

Cons: Ugly as all **** and difficult to wear under tank tops. If I'm working out, I wanna wear something sleeveless to keep me cooled off. But I have to wear mine under a tee, or a black tank, because the underarm comes up so high.
It also runs around $60. A lot of money, but the quality is unmatched and you only need one.

CW-X makes great sports bras for larger sized chests... I wear one for running (I used to be a 36DD) and there's no bouncing, although I would strongly advise you to get one size smaller than you actually are.
