Can anyone recommend a good fitting sports bra? I am a 32FF and would love to hear any advice about which one to get. Thanks

I buy mine from a website called Boobydoo. I just buy my normal bra size (34GG) and have never had a problem. I usually buy Shock Absorbers, the highest level, they are about £24.

Find a Bravisimmo and get one from there.

I have this one and it's great.

The Freya Underwire Bra is very good.

I'm the same size and do a lot of sports, Shock absorber Run is my favourite. I needed to go a backsize up though, it's quite tight.

Another vote for shock absorber Run bra. I'm normally a 30F and I wear a 32E, so one band size up,the same as hazel. So you would need a 34F

I have the non-wired version of that Freya one (it was also good as a maternity bra!) and find it better than the Shock Absorber Run.

I wear the Freya one. Never had any problems

I have both the Freya that Sorrel linked to and a Shock Absorber Run and I much prefer the Freya.

Enell is apparently fantastic as well as shock absorber Run bra.

I have the freya too but I find it terribly pointy. Afraid that might take someone's eye out..

I got mine here after a mumsnetter kindly pointed me in the direction.

Mine wasn't at all yellow either!

Enell is brilliant for high impact. I don't find the Freya supportive enough, maybe because I'm used to the Enell. Panache one is good too but I have to do up the racer back clip for high impact.

I LOVE my Panache underwired one (36H). I don't feel any movement and can't recommend it enough grin

I use the Enell, it really holds me in place, virtually zero bounce.

Aunmaggie what has a pork recipe got to do with sports bras? Just wonderin?

Panache one is fab. Used to use Shock Absorber years ago but outclassed by Panache IMO.

LMAO blush

Should be this one

Just been reviewing the Freya Active Underwired sports bra and it starts from a D cup. Fab for larger chests for everything except star jumps! Written up a massive review of how I got on with it here. Up until now I'd been using shock absorber which is good for support but not as nice a shape and also a bit grippy for long periods of time. Hope that helps anyone else looking at this thread!

I like the Shock Absorber Level 4. Get it from either Boobydoo or Bravissimo. I do high impact aerobics in it and am a 32H and the don't move at all!
