sports bra suggestions?

Hey guys i was wondering if you had any recommendations for a sports bra with good support. Im a C cup im not huge but i do need something with some support and my sports bras im using right now dont cut it.

Any suggestions?

I was thinking if the Victoria secret shock absorber sports bra's but they're like $45. Im willing to spend the money if they're good does anyone have one or have you guys heard anything about them?

Victoria's secret bra

My 19 year old daughter is also a C cup and is very self-conscious about her breasts bouncing, not only during exercise but in every day life. She just bought the Victoria's Secret bra and she just loves it.

i wear 2

i am a D and i wear 2 sports bras - one target-champion pull over racer back and one target-champion racer back tank. the tank is great esp. when doing pilates or yoga and a regular shirt would fall over my head. i find that the bras marketed to reduce bouncing are tighter and more uncomfortable than wearing two.

I can't stand bounce

I use the Enell bras. I haven't found another one that will control the bounce as well.

Title IX is a good source too, their reviews are great.

I've been getting Champion bras at Target which are great for bounce (I'm a C cup), but i do wish they had adjustable shoulder straps. For the $$ they are a great deal though...

Yes...Title 9 has the best selection of good quality sports bras and they rate them by the level of support.

seperate poster... you guys have given me renewed inspiration to go looking for one again. I looked around about 5 months ago and when I tested them in the dressing room, bouncing or jumping up and down, nothing I tried helped me... I will try and find these brands.

Enell Bras

I want to second the comment of the poster who mentioned Enell bras.

There is no better sports bra in the world than Enell and I have tried dozens over the years. Note that I am really large so I wear an Enell bra over a regular bra, but for most people, I am sure the Enell alone would work.

You can check out the company's web site at and you can read more about the bra at

As this is the only sports bra I purchase now, I can tell you that it is frequently sold out. If the bra is sold out on the first two or three sites I try, I can usually surf and eventually find one that has the bra in stock in my size.

i just found an excellent bra-top!! i have 38DD and have never before been able to wear a top w/ a "shelf-bra" built in. however, i just bought a "yoga-top" from and it is ab-so-lutely fabulous!! in fact, right now it is marked down from $36 to $9.99!! i am a large woman-200lbs-and bought the XL. it fits great, i can breath comfortably and no "uni-boob". a real find!! good luck!

Victoria's Secret Shock Absorber Sports Bra

I own at least 5 or so of the Shock Absorer Sports Bra.
If you take good care of them and wash them correctly,
they last for years (mine are at least 3 years old) and are worth
the money. They are very comfortable and help prevent any bouncing (I run a lot so that is a major plus). They have been the best sports bras I have ever worn. Try one and see if you like it!

Victoria's Secret Sports Bra

Actually, since I am looking to get a couple more sports bra,
a sales associate informed me today that the company discontinued the
Shock Absorber bra and now have a better/improved bra on the market. She said it was called VSX (they also have yoga tops/pants as well) and they can
be found in stores, so check it out!
