To ask if a good sports bra for big boobs that doesn't cost the earth exists!?

And where could I get it from?

Post-pregnancy my already massive breasts are now a 34J. I'm just getting back into exercising but my old sports bra is too small now and I can't even go for a long walk without backache, I need a good, high impact sports bra so I can run and do HIIT again.

I personally think Shock Absorbers are the best. You can get them new and much cheaper from eBay if you know what size you are in them (or try on some in shops to find out the size and then come home and order them)! Amazon also have them quite a lot cheaper than most places.

Get thee to a Bravissimo store!
Not exactly cheap (£30-40) but excellent fitting service.

Asda zip up ones. Fab

I got my f cup one in m and S, don't know if they go to a j but worth a shot

I second Shock Absorbers - just had a look on my Amazon order and the one I bought only goes up to a G cup, but they may to another one in bigger cup sizes.

Bravissimo! They had £5 off sports bras recently.

I second a Shockabsorber. But the older style with two sets of proper catches (one higher up and one in the normal place a bra would fasten).

Theresahairbrushinthefridge Tue 06-Feb-18 21:34:29

Sorry. I am 34 J. I have a Panache one from bravissimo. Not cheap. But very necessary

Yep definitely shock absorber, I'm a FF and no bouncing at all, I got fitted at bravissimo and just bought one, then ordered from eBay after that for a quarter of the price.

Shock absorber.

Tistheseason17 Tue 06-Feb-18 21:39:04

Shock absorber. EBay or Amazon cheaper.

Allthewaves Tue 06-Feb-18 21:40:27

Simply be do J cup. I used to wear sports bra, one of those bra tops over it then tight fitting vest top. Guaranteed to stop bounce and pain

My preggo boobs laughed or giggled excessively rather at a well reviewed shock absorber bra. I ended up just buying a bathing suit and swimming at the pool next door.

Allthewaves Tue 06-Feb-18 21:43:35

Bravissimo stock 3/4. Tbh I don't think shock absorbers go to a j

Skibunny1980 Tue 06-Feb-18 21:46:26

Enell. Nothing compares. I’ve tried them all.

Skibunny1980 Tue 06-Feb-18 21:48:21

Christ they are more expensive than I recall! I wear mine twice a week so it gets washed twice a week. Worth the money per wear.

PoppyCherry Tue 06-Feb-18 21:48:32

I have an Enell (H cup).

Struggle to get it on, but oh my days, they are brilliant

Another 34J here! I double up. Underwired sports bra (shockabsorber I think) with a soft one on top. Feels a bit bound up, but I run regularly with no back problems so it seems to do the trick.

PoppyCherry Tue 06-Feb-18 21:49:26

Agree Ski

Mine has been washed twice a week for 8 years. Still good as new.

Freshprincess Tue 06-Feb-18 21:51:02

I'm 'Only' a FF but I wouldn't wear anything other than a shock absorber. You need to try it on before you buy though as the band is very tight and I had to go up a size.
Not exactly cheap, but as I'm sure you already know, bras for big boobs aren't.

olivesnutsandcheese Tue 06-Feb-18 21:59:07

Shock absorber here too however I also have a Freya underwired sports bra that is absolutely fabulous for running. I'm a 32F.
I picked that one up in the Debenhams blue cross sale smile

DerelictWreck Tue 06-Feb-18 22:00:42

You're the same size as me and I only use shock absorber - you can get them from John Lewis of Bravissimo who are amazing for big boobs!

notwonderwoman Tue 06-Feb-18 22:03:51

Shock absorber for me. I'm a 30F

stopfuckingshoutingatme Tue 06-Feb-18 22:04:58

It’s very simple
Wear two bras - get the M&S boulder holder non wired ones
