Although I do think higher end sports bras are probably fairly effective, I can't afford to buy them all the time (I like having a couple of options). What I do is I layer 2 Target sports bras and I get a size lower than I would usually buy so its extra tight. They do stretch out after a season, but then I can wear the older bras as the top bra in the 2 bra layering lol. The double layer should work with cheap or high end bras, I just usually cheap out.

I wear a larger bra now, but I have been using this technique since I was a size B in high school and I have always hated ANY boob movement.

Hope this helps!

I haven't been to the gym in a long while, but I always used to layer a regular underwire bra underneath of a Wal-Mart sports bra. Probably not the best thing to do, but it controlled the jiggle.

I can certainly empathize with the difficulties in finding a decent sports bra (and regular bra). I didn't realize how much of a problem it was until I actually started losing inches (lost inches around the ribcage but not in the bust). The only thing that I can recommend is to try them on before you buy them. You may find that the size you think would fit, doesn't fit. Some may fit, but not give you the support you need. That has been my problem and for the longest time it limited what I could do for cardio.

I know you say that there is only one source of income, so if you can try to save up to buy at least 2 of the bra's (alternate the days the you wear them, hang them to dry, etc.). Bra's for busty girls, as I am sure you know, aren't cheap.

Let me tell you, finding a sports bra for us big busted ladies is tough. I found the best one is the Shock Absorber. I'm a 30 F and being that size it is a pain just to find regular bras, much less a sports bra that won't have you bouncing around and ruining your skin tissues. They aren't cheap, but they will strap your ladies down and it will last you a long time! They hook not only like a regular bra, but also along your shoulder blades. Here is the website: http://www.shockabsorberusa.com/index.php I hope that works for you or you find something else that works.

I am in search of a good, supportive and inexpensive sports bra. I am considered obese with a large chest and it physically hurts to do any type of cardio that involves bouncing. I have a couple of sports bras that are ok, but they really aren't as supportive as I need. Also, we are a one income family so it can't break the bank. Thank you for your help!
