Comfy everyday sports bra

Any recommendations out there for a comfortable everyday sports style bra for the large of nork?
Currently 34GG, Curvy Kate bras that have always felt ok before are digging in my shoulders and I'm so tired of noticing my bra is on.
Can't wait to whip it off as soon as I get home.

I'm thinking a racer back style might be good to mix it up but want good comfortable support, no squashed single boob, and not as trussed up as I feel in my Ennel bra that is excellent for high impact activities.

My job means light flurries of activity throughout the day, which require a bit of harnessing. Does such a unicorn exist?
Please help me!

I went to Brassisimo today to find some boulder holders for my 36f and bought Panache sports bra . The assistant thought the ff was a better fit ( and I agreed ) but a bit more jiggle than I wanted for the dancing I do .
I bought this one .

Lululemon Enlite bra is the most comfortable sports bra I have ever had. I am a 32E.
Soft but shaped, no hard edges, keeps them FIRMLY in place (I run). I have worn mine for 3 days in a row when I have been tramping in the mountains and getting undressed was not an option - super comfy.
Expensive but worth every penny. Far better than my Panache one (which is ok)

I like Marks and Spencers
I'm a 38F and they work very well

I've just bought a Panache Epic in 32F, and it's pretty good. I ordered another Panache and a Freya, and could have lived with either, but this was better; no uniboob and no wobble. I tried the racer back clip and while it was comfortable for a while I was more comfortable once I unclipped it.

If you are in the US, or know someone who goes regularly, Natori sports bras are excellent. Mine is ancient, and cotton, but they are too expensive once you add up shipping and the near-certainty of tax and PO handling fees.

Thanks all for the replies, I will have a look at those

I just want soft but secure, it shouldn't be this hard

I've had a couple of 32 f in the m and s one - comfy

I have one from Uniqlo that is ridiculously comfortable.

I like the Panache one, but my current favourite is Shock Absorber.

I have various ones for running, which are very good, but probably not what you are after. I also have this one

which is good for general activity and comfy to keep on.

Warning - their sizing is a bit weird. I have consistently gone up a band size and down a cup size for any bra I've had from them.

The company I've linked has a very good returns policy! (And you get a pack of mini Haribo with every order)

Amazon UK has Natori sports bras

Love a shock absorber

Shock absorber all the way for my 40H 🙈

That's interesting about the shock absorber- I had one ages ago but discounted it as I didn't find it comfortable. Thinking about it, the band was in the tighter side - maybe I'll try going up a band since it gets so many good reviews

Thank you for the link; unfortunately, the bras are still coming from the States and while the shipping is cheaper, there's still the risk of additional taxes. Worst of all, the specific style I wanted isn't shown and a straight replacement for the original is no longer made. blush I spent several hours chasing them a few weeks ago!
