I've been jogging for a while and need to renew my aging sports bra. I take a 38D so need good support, and I'm not keen on lots of bounce. Looking at previous threads, the Panache Sports Bra seems to be reccomended. Are there any other suggestions? Thanks
For running, you might want to try a Shock Absorber, but see if you can find a nearby stockist and try them on. I found their sizing to be quite unlike other brands. But once you've worked out what fits, they are very good (and sizing seems to be true across the different bras in the range)
Panache is rubbish as is every sport bra that has an underwire. Sport bras are supposed to compress and if it has a wire the fabric has to bevel outwards so wont compress as much. A bra fitter told me this and warned me off panache.
Wired sports bras don't work on the compression principle though @NikiBabe so I fear you've been given incomplete and inaccurate information. They are designed to individually encapsulate the breasts and hold them in place. Some breasts, especially those with more projection and a smaller root or those that are very firm, will not be compressed!
The Panache sports bra works really well for those people it suits- including both of my sisters- but ultimately the best sports bra is the one that is comfortable and allows the least breast movement
I'm a 34 DD or E (depending on time of month). I've been through loads of sports bras over the years and have settled on the Shock absorber level 4 (not the run version) Its the one with padded shoulder straps. Also, this amazing Enell one Nothing moves in an Enell, I can tell you that!
i find shock absorber the best although worth looking around for the best deals, i have over past few years tried a few cheaper alternatives from amazon which work just as well at a fraction of price just type in SYROKAN and they have a few different styles
