Know I am probably being so silly and thick but I am planning to go back to the gym this week and I never gave it thought untill today that I will need a sports bra as I have huge breasts but will this effect my supply?
Feel very silly for asking as I should know but I dont so here it is lol

yes it is. you need all the support you can get, depending on the norkage you might even need to wear 2 bras over each other.
as long as you don't spend hours and hours in the gym it will not affect your supply.

I'd get yourself fitted for a new one, making sure that there's no pressure on the breast tissue (especially at the bottom) as this could trigger blocked ducts (as can any poorly-fitting bra).

The bra itself won't won't affect your supply at all.

Not a silly question at all.

Of course not! I'm wearing normal bras and breastfeeding.

As long as it's not way too small you will be fine.
