Underwire vs Wireless Sports Bra

For those of you that work out intensely, what is your preference?

I for many years have worn underwire sports bras in conjuction with a bra top for extra support. I just had a breast lift and am wondering whether I should wear underwire (within time) or go to wireless.

Please share your thoughts :)

I think that really depends on the size of your breasts and the amount of support you prefer.

I like NO BOUNCE. Those girls better not move more than a tiny bit while I'm exercising. There's nothing that looks worse than a female jogger flopping her way down street - just looks painful.

I'm small breasted so that means sports bra manufacturers think I don't need an underwire (or a back closure, or adjustable straps - yes I'm a little bitter why do you ask?) so that's not usually an option I even get to consider (although small breasts bounce plenty). Fortunately I've found several companies who do manufacture bras that hold up to my criteria and the newer fabrics can hold very wel without constricting your breathing.

So my opinion on the subject would be that these days you can find some good wireless bras that offer adequate support. However my opinion is only based on my experience and I'm a B cup. Good luck with the bra shopping!

Well none of mine have underwire... but as a 34A I don't think I truly understand the issue :)

i'm a 36D and my two favorite sports bras don't have underwires... the bras i have come in actual sizes and do a fantastic job of keeping my girls motionless.... so i guess the point would be to try on many and see which works best for you.

im a 36D as well and my sports bras come in actual sizes too. They are from Victoria's Secret, and I love them. No bounce here! :)

Do the underwires make your breasts look better like a real underwire does

Since we're on the subject of bras... Does anyone know of a good place in the US to get large cup bras? I'm a 32G (Yeah, sounds crazy but I have a small rib cage and to hold the girls in line it needs to be snug... they are BIG part of the reason I want to lose weight). I know of a store in the UK, but I'll be moving back home to the US in a few months and ordering online isn't the best way to bra shop. Besides with the way the exchange rate is, it'll made me go bankrupt.

34A

I am a 34A and I need to find a sports bra with more support. I have purchase all kinds of sports bras and every time I go to the gym I am in pain within minutes of running. I end up holding myself for a few minutes then give up.

I always thought that I have a B cup size but when I decided to have my bra size taken at a well known lingerie chain in UK, I turn out to be a D cup.
Do cup sizes vary from country to country

Question for the origonal poster, not bra subjet, sorry....

Are you satisfied with your breastlift?

I'm a D cup and in my mid 20s, and they are starting to sag, I know it is not going to get better in time!

I think it may be because in the past my weight fluxuated a lot, gain 20, lose 20, ect.

In any case I am seriously considering a lift, but I don't want to increase or decrease the size at all, just make them firm and perky again!

I've been doing some research but it is always nice to hear the optionon of an actually patient instead of the testomonials from doctores web pages.

Thanks a lot!
