Breastfeeding - sports bra

Went for my first post-baby jog/walk yesterday and came to the conclusion that I'm in desperate need of a decent sports bra.
Does anyone have any experience of running while breastfeeding? Can you recommend any bras? Ideally I'll get fitted but not sure of best place to go as it's a bit more specialist....

No but I'll follow with interest! At the moment I wear a normal SB which I have to pull off both shoulders to feed! I usually put my normal nursing bra on and change into SB at the gym once I know I don't need to feed for a while. I have seen a nursing SB but wasn't sure how secure it would be. I have quite a hefty cleavage.

I have brought a bf sports bra from cake. I have naturally big boobs (32f) and am currently 9 months pg. it's expensive but seems great quality and looks like it will be up to the job

I've not come across cake while looking. Will take a look. I'm jig even too worried if it's no good for feeding, I just need the support. My pre pregnancy bras are a 34b and were perfect. I'm now in a 34D and just feel like my boobs need holding down!!

Oh well if feeding isn't an issue, you need to look at shock absorber. As a big-boobed active woman, they are my go-to

Ran the London Marathon on Sunday, still breastfeeding my 13 month old. I'm a 32H so the Shock Absorber Active Multisport is one of the few that come in my size and give good support. Panache is pretty good too.

I don't often plan to breastfeed while running but if I do (after a buggy run etc) I just open up the sports bra I'm wearing.

Congrats on the marathon! London Is incredible isn't it!
I used shock absorber before, so might go wit them if I can find my size. Just wasn't sure they'd be good enough for feeding boobs!
