Sports Bras

What kind of sport bra do you use? Do you like it? Do you just live with it? What is good for non chafing? What is good for wicking away moisture? I hate bra shopping anyway. Too many choices! I'd love to be able to walk into a shop and say, "I'd like to try the blah, blah, blah..."

I love almost any Nike sports bra that is a Dri-Fit. Reebok sports bras are a tighter fit than Nike, but can be too tight around the rib cage. Also, I've found I only lke the short ones (not the longer ones that cover your stomach if you wanted to cruise around in just your bra). Stay away from cotton if you're worried about chafing.

Has anyone tried the Enell bra? It was endorsed by Oprah as a really, really great sports bra for full chested women, but I'm wondering whether you get the uniboob effect with it. Anyone try it?

Just like for socks, you should stay away from any bras with cotton...

I found some that were in the "regular bra" section that work well for me, I think they are called "Barely There"... and I got them at Kohl's they are not expensive and are are made of microfiber, and wick away most moisture (some accumulates in the chest band, but not enough to make me chafe. I'm relatively chested (36 or 38B-Cup), so I find that they work as well as a heavier sports bra for me. I also wear their underwear as well.

The best sports bra

If you are looking for a great sports bra. is a great site to go to. They rate them by barbells. The more barbells, the more support. For the bustier active women which I am, I love the 3 reasons sports bra. It doesn't have an underwire but it is so comfortable and SUPPORTIVE. I ran my first marathon in it and it was the most comfortable sports bra I have ever worn. It was the best. Actually it is by "Moving Comfort" the Fiona Bra. You can also find it at REI, Sportsmart or Sports Chalet.

Those "Barely there" are well named - barely nothing, barely supporting. Not suitable for working out unless you are flat.

To the poster who wanted to know about Enell bras

I just received mine (ordered online, can't find them in stores), and I'm not impressed. I'm very clearly a size 3 - 40DD, smack in the middle of that size range. It's tight around the rib cage and has decent support on the bottom half of the cup, but jogging and jumping jacks are still not an option. Everything jiggles and quivers at the top. The straps are not adjustable.

Okay, so it's the best I've come across...but I really thought this thing would act like body armor and allow me to do anything, and that's not the case.

Just like any bra, I think you really have to do this in person and try them on because everone is so different. Depending on how large you are, I don't know if it's realistic to be able to jump and never have the things move a bit; you will just have to try a variety of ones on. Good luck!
