Anyone have a ultra high support sports bra recommendation?
17

OutingMyselfAgain · 14/11/2020 20:21

Both my sports bras feel really supportive when I put them on, like my boobs can't move at all, but they always hurt afterwards.

I need something ridiculously supportive, but I don't want to waste my money!

Any ideas gratefully received :)

Shock Absorber do the job for me. Not cheap but can quite often find them cheaper online. I'm a 32f and they don't move

The Shock Absorber Ultimate Run bra, for sure. I ran in it without pain when I was a 36G.

Freya Active underwired (ran a decent half marathon in it as a 34H with no trouble)

Then Panache.

Shock Absorber Ultimate Run as 3rd choice.

Lots of people swear by Enell, but they rubbed me to shreds.

Shock absorber has a new style called infinity, which is ridiculously comfortable. No bounce, no discomfort.

I wear 2 sports bras (at the same time) one wired and one not wired. Very very comfy. I've got a few from marks and Spencer's and a shock absorber.

You see, I'm baffled whenever people say this. What sort of exercise do you do in two sports bras, which doesn't chafe?!

I run about 12.5k and get no chaffing. Honest! Everything is held in place so well! Grin

I used the shock absorber ultimate run today, and it was brilliant.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Enell has my vote. I have been using this brand for more than a decade (well it feels like it) and the bras last a really long time. They aren't the prettiest bra but for bigger chests the wide straps are a blessing! They aren't cheap but their durability is outstanding.

Don't you find the Enell ones really rub, @FollowedMyDreams? I might've got the sizing wrong, but I tried both the 00 and the 0 and neither was quite right over long runs. I always found the Enell hard-wearing and durable for the first hour or two, but just painful after that, especially in the middle section where the hooks are.

Ah, fair enough @moirarosebabay - if you're only doing shorter distances I can see how it works. The concept of being out for hours with two bras on was what was blowing my mind - IME most things are comfortable up to a couple of hours, but its then that any chafing or uncomfortable hooks/fabric/straps really get bothersome!

Hi @fellrunner85 - I must confess I am not a runner BUT I do hike longer distances up to 25km when the mood takes me, so I can be out for several hours. I haven't had any issues that you have mentioned. It might be worth checking out different sizes as you mentioned. I have also been wearing them all day for work but opted to go a few sizes up for comfort when I am not doing high impact but just want to keep my breasts restrained and out the way :)
