Thanks for the info ladies....I am in need of a good sports bra too! After reading some of the online reviews I think I will be investing in a Wacoal sports bra soon!

I'd say go to the store and actually try on as many bras as you can. I'm a 32D and definitely have to look to get the support I need. I looked at the reviews on Amazon to get a good baseline idea of what brands were good etc., but what it really came down to was the fit in person. I found that bras based on compression don't really do much other than restrict my breathing. I'd look for a bra with actual cup sizes rather than small, medium, large etc. Personally right now I'm using the Wacoal sports bra because it's it's the only one that actually worked. The price is definitely high, but you can also get a lot of use out of it. I have a Wacoal strapless that I've owned for two years now and is still usable after using it pretty much every day in summer and frequently in fall and spring.
Hope this helps and good luck finding something that works for you!

Tile Nine is a great place and I know a lot of people who've had great success purchasing on their website. The catch is they are a little pricier. They list their bras by cup size and you can search by "barbell" which is the amount of support you need. 1 barbell is less and 5 is greater.

The first one I got was a Champion compression bra. It keeps me "stable", it's comfortable and reasonably priced. My next one was not a compression bra and I'm not as happy with it.

Love my Wacoal sports bras from DIllards. They hold me well.

I love my moving comfort sports bras. I have the fiona and the juno. The cheapest I've seen them is around 25 but they are usually in the 40's. What makes them great is they are in bra sizes and they have velcro straps that really helps to keep you in and from moving around better. You can get them on amazon or sierratradingpost.com.

I am having some difficulty finding sports bras that are supportive and dont wear out quickly, and are under 20 dollars for larger sizes. I am a 40-42 DD with most brands if not bigger for ones that run small and finding bras where everythings not bouncing around or is covered has been a challenge. Walmart, Target and other stores arent an option, they have the size sometimes, they just dont offer the best support or coverage. I have thought about the lane bryant brand ones or others that they sell, I havent bought them and might try and find a review for their sports bras.. They are kind of pricey so I spending money for something that wont work or I cant return isnt the best option. I will spend more than 20 if I llike the bra, just not for new products.
