I have never been able to find a good sports bra, or regular bra for that matter. I am a 40G, or at least I think I am. (I have been measured at Lane Bryant, but all the bras I tried on in that size did NOT fit me. The bras I wear currently are from Lane Bryant.) My issue is that my girls sag quite a bit from the weight of them, and they don't like to sit on my chest. So any bra that I get (unless underwire) just rolls up underneath them. This is fine with me, as it helps with sweating and chaffing, but makes it a pain to find a bra that fits right and looks good. Ugh.
Thanks for the tip on Junonia...I am currently looking at bras there and am looking at swimsuits for my honeymoon as well. :) I didn't know they were out there!
If anyone else has any suggestions about bras, please share!

I am a 38 F and I have an Enell and a Shock Absorber. Both are excellent "compression" bras. I am able to run or do jumping jacks with minimal movement. Also, couldn't agree more with getting yourself measured. Can be quite an eye opener.
hi ladies...i work for lane bryant...and let me tell you...if you get measured it helps!!! we always recommend going to just my size...either in an outlet mall or online. also jc penney. a girlfriend of mine found an underwire one in a 38ddd for $20.00..i think it was on sale and she lucked out...but those are great places to find bras...i am a 42ddd (42F) and i usually will wear our sports bra and a tank with a shelf bra.. we do also carry sports bras online and lanebryant.com...hope this helps!
I've been wearing the C9 seamless bra from Target for a while now. It's very comfortable and has provided enough support in the past (even for running). I suspect now that that was because it was just a hair too small. I seem to have lost most of my weight in my chest and it's not quite as supportive, now.

ONLY TID BIT i HAVE TO ADD TO THIS IS MAKE SURE YOU MEASURE CORRECTLY... MEASUREMENTS ARE CRUCIAL.. NOT WHAT FEELS RIGHT. I'VE BEEN WEARING "WHAT FELT RIGHT" FOR YEARS.. IVE GONE FROM A 40DD OR 38DDD BUT WHEN I GOT MEASURED TWO MONTHS AGO, I FOUND I'M A 36J.. MAKE SENSE??? lol I'VE ALSO BEEN TOLD THAT DDD ALSO CAN BE AN F. SO IT'S VERY TRICKY..
I just checked out the website a lady provided below http://www.titlenine.com/ and I don't know what size you are but there was nothing bigger than a 42 DD which would never work for me since I am a 44 DDD. Anyone know where I can find a sports bra in that size? And one about 40.00 dollars, I can't afford a 60.00 bra.
I found an awesome one at Walmart...It has built in underwire and it actualy has hooks like a regular bra but is shaped and made of great material like a sports bra!! IT's AMAZING!! When I wear a regular sports bra I don't like it I feel like they are flopping all over the place (I'm sure there not but that's how I feel and it's just not as comfortable!! :) Hope you find one that you like!! :) Amy
Check out the ratings of bras at Title Nine Sports http://www.titlenine.com/ As well as giving a barbell rating of how much support a specific bra will provide, the descriptions contain additional information on the specifics of the bra.
