Best sports bra?
I'd just like to comment on the number of people (men!) who have viewed this thread in comparison to the number of people who have posted a comment!
Shame on you, you lurkers!!
(I use Sportjock bras and they are superb - and I am 32DD)
I was wondering about Sportjock ST I might give one a try.
God knows what the lurkers think they will see (pictures?) sports bras are so deeply unsexy (or do we have lurking sports bras fetishists). Perhaps it's just discussion of the size of our boobies that titillates.

Nah, they haven't spotted us, I think we're still safe chaps.

Hello, I hope you found one that fits by now too.
I always recommend www.lessbounce.com Yes, you have to go through ordering and returning if the size isn't right, but they're really good at giving advice by email. So if you've tried a couple and found the fit or support isn't right, they'll be well placed to advise.
Personally (32D) I like Champion Action Shape but find it a little hot in summer (it's a double layered, thick stretch cotton) and am going to try the shock absorber level 4 crop top with the racerback as an alternative.
The other advice I would give is to look out for vests with the "built in shelf", e.g. http://www.sweatshop.co.uk/details.cfm?ProdID=4626
In conjunction with a good bra, they do help to keep everything still.
I think all the larger ladies on RW should have a "bounce off" to see who's the erm, mammy.
I can lay my hands on a camcorder to record the event for posterity.
I'm another fan of the doubling up method - best I've ever found is the Sportjock D3 (the one with a zip) which is as supportive as the Enell (and as unflattering lol) but much less sweaty to wear. I also like the Freya Active underwired bra which I wear for gym sessions.
Best option is to buy from Boobydoo or Less Bounce, both of whom provide great customer service and try on in front of a mirror (including jumping up and down) and send back anything which doesn't fell or look right.
If you pop into any Sweatshop store we have dedicated 'bra' staff to help you find the best sports bra for you. Our staff are now working with Dr joanna Scurr from Portsmouth University, also if you go in this weekend and buy shoes you can 15% off any non-sale sports bra.
I would recommend Boobydoo an online sports retailer specializing in sports bras!
They have fantastic range and advice and free returns!
The Panache range are gorgeous!
