How to find the right sports bra when you have big boobs

A good sports bra is one of the most important pieces of kit when exercising – especially if you're top heavy. Without proper support, your breasts move an average of 10cm in 3 different directions (up and down, side to side and forwards and backwards) during exercise.

Hello pain, chafing and eventual sagging :(

Dr Joanna Scurr from the Department of Sport and Exercise Health at Portsmouth University, who has done a range of studies on breast health, reiterates why it's so important for bigger-busted ladies to get proper support:

  • Breasts have no muscle
  • The wrong bra = pain!
  • Bad support compromises technique

So ladies with the big breasts heed these wise words:

  1. Avoid sports bras that you pull on overhead
  2. Find a rigid underband
  3. Avoid too much elastication in the fabric
  4. Do the bounce test
  5. Focus on wide shoulder straps
