So I am between a 32-34 DD right now this is low for me LOL I have been right up in the J's after giving birth. Do you know how hard it is to find a sports bra that can fit a small ribcage a big chest and provide no bounce!
ITS FRUSTRATING to say the least. I have tried 10 in the past 3 weeks. Thanks to Zappos, Amazon and Lulemoon I was able to try them at home before deciding. I put them on jump around do some arm lifting up and down then I culminate my opinion.
This is what I have trouble with
#Bounce, I do not need black eyes!
#Side Boobs ( you know when they fall out the side)
#Too much cleavage, I do not need to be bending over doing weights and worrying about someone staring down my top.
#Racerbacks (can't big chested girls have pretty bras and shirts too)
#stretching , they will fit fine then 5 minutes later be all stretched out.
I have realized in my search for a sports bra that the perfect one really doesn't exist and I may have to settle for less. I know alot of woman with my problem double bra it, but why should we have to do this??? In this world of technology can't someone come up with a heavy duty, no bounce, racer back attractive sports bra for us well endowed runners and jumpers off the world?
I have been using the moving comfort Fiona for a year or so now but the metal hooks in the back got bent out of shape a while back and I have been just making do. With Summer coming up and a new back to show off I really want a racerback.
Here is what I have tried and my findings (I tried each in two sizes)
Moving Comfort Juno - Great Support BUT it chafed the side of my arms pretty bad to the point where it got a rash after 10 minutes of lifting weights. The material is very stiff and it does not soften on the edges. It also had the same metal clasps as the Fiona so I was concerned of the same thing
Champion 360 - I took a chance on this one because the reviews were good but there 34DD's must be lighter than mine because this bra offered no support, what so ever.
Shock Absorber Extreme Sports Bra - This one bared way too much cleavage for my liking and I could have compromised if the support was there but it just wasn't/
Shock Absorber Ultimate Gym Bar - The fit on this one just seemed funky, side boobs galore, I didn't really care for the back, it was really hard to get in and out of, like contortionist hard and once again a little too much bounce. So I would say this was an ultimate yoga gym bra.
Lulemoon Ta Ta Tamer II - I had read great things about this bra so today I went to the store to try it on. It was so cute, it looked cute and the straps are adjustable so you can cross them over or have them like normal bra straps, the colors and patterns are really nice but GOSH BOUNCE BOUNCE BOUNCE. There is no way I could run or even walk fast in this bra and feel supported , which was such a shame! I am thinking I may get one to just wear around though.
Shock Absorber Run Sports Bra - This is the one I have decided to go with. It does offer good support, it is tricky to get on though. The back is cute and racerback. Material is soft and comfortable. I am compromising on the stretch, it did seem to stretch out a little after wearing it for 10 minutes but the smaller size had me falling out everywhere. I am hoping this bra works for me in the long run, otherwise I may have to give up on the dream of support and cuteness!
