Best sports bra?
This is great! I thought I was the only one with this problem... My recommendation is to wear 2 at the same time, a shock absorber and then a Jockey Sport... then a skin t-shirt and then a running shirt. Alternatively have a reduction - ouch!!!
just got back from an unsuccessful trip to buy a sports bra. I tried the Enell, and it is too loose around my upper back and upper chest. I think the smaller size would probably be too small around the ribcage. I've also tried Royce impact free, and the shock absorber, but neither were good enough. am I expecting too much from a sports bra, as I'm a 32FF? I'm thinking of either trying to stitch the enell to see if that helps (though I'm loth to do that on such an expensive bra), or try the double-up method.
I have used shock absorbers B109 (level 4) for about 4 years, never rubbed or hurt, I was a 34F but lost weight due to all the running so now 34E. Still use B109. Get properly fitted though, I went to Debanams
I've found that Debenhams are the only store that seems to have level 4s in stock, the rest have to order it for you.
LAJ you should have tried the smaller size enell to see whether it would go over your rib cage. The sizing of them is wierd.
Enell every time keeps the breasticles in place and doesn't rub, they do look awful though but I'm all about the comfort. I am a 28FF and wear size 0 Enell. Shock absorbers only work for low impact stuff for me.
I had high hopes for the enell, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to suit my shape and there's no way to adjust it! I ordered a bunch of different brands so I could compare, but some are still delayed so I'm a bit annoyed. the freya active one isn't bad, but may need something over the top too.
Does anyone know if there is anywhere in Central/South London area that stocks the Elnell where I could go and try one on? I've only managed to find online stockists so far.
I'm a 38FF and I don't really understand the Elnell sizing guides I've seen online. My other concern is that I read somewhere that the Elnell's aren't made of wicking material - does this cause a problem? I'm currently using just a cotton lyra type thing and I find it rubs my ribcage as it soaks up sweat so much, so it couldn't be any worse! But given the price tag, I'd rather invest in something that will last and do the job properly (even if it does give me the 'giant uni-boob' effect).
Thanks for the link - how do you find the underwire? Can you feel it when you are running?

Completely new to running, the advice in this thread has been helpful, but when looking up the Enell on a webpage it says suitable for C-E, i'm a 34G is there something that would be more suitable?
