Thanks! I didn't think of looking there.

I got my best sports bras at the LB outlet. I don't know if they're the same in the regular store or not. They are sized just like shirts, but I don't buy my shirt size - I buy smaller. I'm certain it's one size, but I think two sizes smaller than my shirts. It gives me good compression and keeps the girls from moving around.

i have a nike one, not sure what the model is but it's good. amazing support, totally changed my outlook on running! :P

make sure you try every model available at the store before you buy and jump up and down to see what it feels like. i wouldn't recommend going for the cheap option. a crappy bra just makes you hate exercising so in the end it's not worth it!

I've had the same Patagonia sports bra for six years (it's my only one and I'm pretty active--gross, I know) and it's flippin' amazing. I'm a D cup and this bra keeps me completely in place and has stood up awesomely for all these years, despite multiple washings per week and lots of sweat.

I third this. I'm a fairly active person, with large-ish cup size (I'm a 32 D). I need a well-structured bra. I've tried many kinds of bras, none have been perfect. A year ago I bought myself two of Lululemon's "Tata Tamers". I find these to be perfect for running (no bounce!) and also great for yoga (no under wire and not too restrictive). Also they look almost like those cute "regular" sports bras small cup girls can wear. Expensive but so worth it.

Alright I'm looking into LuLulemons if they prevent bounce. I was a 32 D before pregnancy/breastfeeding and I hate things moving around up top when jogging.

I HIGHLY recommend the Freya Active.

Agree! I work out 5 times a week (step and body workout classes) and it's perfect. I also have Shock Absorber which is probably even better in terms of holding but it's not so comfortable (at lest for me).

Are you sure? Most woman have wrong fitted bras. I'm wearing now 30F/FF and earlier I was constantly told that I'm 34C, but I wasn't, it's just the policy of lingerie companies - they don't produce the whole range of sizes and just trying to give you whet they have, that's why I like Freya bras so much - they are available in all sizes.

i feel like the straps on the enell are too long for me too.
like, it fits snugly across my ribcage and thats where most of the support comes from + the compression, but it's a little too "big" feeling in the top-front. but it doesnt seem to affect the anti-bounce factor. unfortunately the bras with adjustable straps that ive tried and own/ed dont have the same level of support and compression as the enell. i wonder if i could shorten up the straps just a little bit.

yes! this is what i feel! except i do have bounce. it didnt bother me too much until I started the Insanity workout which has a ton of jumping. Now I'm trying to decide if I want to buy the freya now or wait and see if I lose any weight or I may get surgery in the next couple months in which case I wouldnt need a giant bra anymore. ugh. I need more money.

This is my favorite sports bra. I wear a large size and even though it says medium impact I wear it during vigorus kick boxing classes with out any problems and no uniboob. Actually I wear this bra to work before my workout days and I don't look like I am wearing a sports bra which is a major plus.

I had one of these when I was running lots. No uniboob, and it was fantastic. It was the first time I could run without having sore boobs after.

I love Lululemon sports bras. I'm probably not a very good judge of support though, because I have a minuscule chest. So if you have above an A cup, don't take my advice :).

Just got a Ta Ta Tamer in the mail yesterday and have spent all day in it today. I just speed walked a couple of miles and did Pilates in it, but it is so comfy and no moving of jostling. Definitely going to get another one when my funds recover.

Do they make any for DDs? I seriously cannot find a decent sports bra in my size. :(

It doesn't look like they do :(. I'd go with the Lululemon one. The TaTa Tamer goes to 36DD and 38DD. They also had another one that was designed for larger busts, but it might have sold out and it's not on the site right now, but keep an eye out for that one, too. My D's don't move at all in the TaTa Tamer, even with lots of jumping and moving around.

I just ordered one from Old Navy- we'll see how it works. http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=37366&vid=8&pid=814660
Surprisingly, according to the size chart, I am not a plus size- I'm a 38 DD.

Where/how did you get sized? I am really having issues with bras at the moment thanks to my ever expanding chest and am really fed up. I've literally tried on every bra in the mall that was a 40 DD or DDD and nothing works. I've been told I'm a 42 D by Victoria's, a 40 DDD by Dillards, a 40 DD by Macy's and a 38 DDD by Fredricks. Ugh.

i would suggest going to a specialty bra shop to be measured. VS told you you were a 42D because they dont make bras for big boobs. regardless, those are all around the same size; if your weight often varies they may all be right. i dont love ordering online since i find bra size varies so much between brands, and even between different styles within brands. knowing my size just gives me a general idea of what to try on, same as clothes and shoes. i did get my enell online and i wonder if i could have used a smaller size--even though im measured and i bought the appropriate size. and once more, GO TO CACIQUE! stop shopping at little booby stores. shop at stores that cater to you.

I second this. Going to a proper bra shop and being fitted is key. We have one called "Anns Bra Shop" here and they are amazing. They deal with problem chests (medically and just weird sized) and really take the time to make sure you feel amazing in your underthings. If you can't find a bra shop in your area, Nordstroms generally has pretty good fitters but I didn't have luck this past time so I went back to the bra shop.
