Finding a sports bra can be a major challenge for women with large breasts. The bra needs to limit bounce, be structured enough to provide support and feel comfortable. So how do you find a DD+ sports bra that checks all three of these boxes? Our Bra Fit Experts will teach you the basics and give some of their favorite sports bras for large busts.
Tip: Comfort and fit go hand-in-hand. A bra that hugs you just so will help avoid any pinching and rubbing from underwire components and prevent the “uniboob” look. In order to make sure you pick the perfect size:
Tip: Wearing a sports bra that breathes well is a game-changer for comfort. Moisture-wicking sports bras and light, breathable materials like microfiber and polyester blends will keep your breasts from chafing and you from overheating. Many sports bras also are designed with vents and mesh to help you stay cool. If breathability has been an issue for you in the past, be wary of foam padding and linings that can trap heat.
BEST SPORTS BRAS FOR DD+ CUPS
Here are some of our favorite DD+ sports bras that will provide the support you need while keeping you comfortable:
Brooks Fiona Wire Free Sports Bra (compression style):
The vertical front seams reduce breast movement, and lightweight molded cups maintain the natural shape of your chest. The chances of chafing are greatly diminished thanks to the brushed underband and DRILAYER® moisture-wicking stretch microfiber.
Rave Reviews: "I love it and now have five of them. A bonus is they hold up very well and wash easily. From a girl of 40D, you won't regret this purchase."
Panache Ultimate Maximum Control Sports Bra (encapsulation style):**Best Seller**
Separate cups make this bra optimal for high-impact activities and large breasts, reducing bounce by a whopping 83 percent. The breathable mesh inserts and moisture-wicking stretch microfiber also keep you cool.
Rave Reviews:"So supportive, so comfy and doesn’t look like I’ve gone back in time to the days of binding."
Wacoal Maximum Control Sports Bra (encapsulation/compression style):
This is an extremely comfortable encapsulation sports bra, as the underwire is positioned on the outside to avoid contact with skin. The breathable mesh back and moisture-wicking microfiber keep the skin dry, and the hook closure makes this bra very easy to put on and take off.
Rave Reviews:"The hook closure means I don’t have to panic trying to take the thing off, thinking I’m going to get stuck in it and call for help. It doesn’t ride up, and the wide non-elastic straps don’t dig in."
Freya Sonic Sports Bra (encapsulation style):
It’s great for support while running because of the encapsulated cups, plus adjustable straps provide a more precise fit. Breathable, moisture-wicking, seam-free spacer fabric means amped-up comfort.
Rave Reviews:"The Freya sports bra is simply amazing: no bounce, no slip, breathable, and moisture-wicking with convertible straps, which accommodate different tops. The construction and materials are top-notch, no fraying or stretching even after a year of use."
Natori Yogi Convertible Sports Bra (encapsulation/compression style):
Designed for mid-impact activities like cycling, this bra offers encapsulated cups for support and a compression design. The hidden underwire and foam cups create a natural shape, and the Coolmax polyester fabric wicks moisture away from the body and dries quickly.
Rave Reviews:"This is my second purchase of this bra. It’s great for keeping things in place for large-busted women who want to feel comfortable while exercising. I’m a 34G, and I could wear this bra all day. Many of the competitors’ bras feel way too confining to even consider extended wear."
Le Mystère High Impact Sports Bra(encapsulation style):
Encapsulated cups that support each breast individually, along with power mesh wings, make for a super comfortable fit. The rigid straps convert to crisscross to reduce bounce in high-impact sports.
Rave Reviews:"Being a full-figured gal, I have suffered from neck, shoulder and mid-back discomfort for many years. All of this is greatly improved since finding this bra. The cup and band support is so good that I don’t have to tighten the shoulder straps to the point of causing grooves or muscle pain. Happy!"
