The right sports bra can make or break your workouts, but if you're a full figured woman, finding the right one can seem impossible. You need something that offers comfort and support without feeling like a straightjacket. It may take some time to find the right one, but the following options may make the decision a little easier. Below are some of the best sports bras for fuller figures.
Moving Comfort is known for their variety of sports bras, and this one was made with curvy women in mind. It fits C-E cup sizes and it both separates and compresses, giving you a a flattering fit and comfortable support. The padded underwire provides the support function and the wide straps are adjustable so you can find the perfect fit. This bra is another favorite for the full figured woman doing more high impact activities. It's also made of sweat-wicking fabric, which keeps you dry and helps avoid chafing.
This is another favorite bra for full figured women, offering that great encapsulating/compressing technology that is both flattering and comfortable. As the bra experts at Title 9 Sports say, your breasts "don't look like they start somewhere in the middle of your back." It's made of sweat-wicking fabric to keep you comfortable and dry as well. This bra is best suited for women with around C-D cups doing higher impact activities.
I got this recommendation from a reader, who contacted me to recommend this bra to women who may need a little extra support, but don't want to feel like they're trussed up. As she said, "I wear a 34DD and have had 2 kids... I wear it all the time... It was comfy enough to even wear when pregnant." It features padded, adjustable straps, a back closure, and a padded band around the ribcage that won't ride up. This would be a good choice for medium-impact activities.
The Motion Sensor is another good choice, but more for medium impact activities, although C-D cups will find it works well for high impact exercise. The straps are in a criss-cross format, which offers more comfortable support, and the hook-and-eye enclosures make it easy to get on and off. The fabric is breathable so sweat is wicked away from your body, leaving you dry and comfortable.
