Not exactly the most budget friendly, but I LOVE Enell bras... They are by far the best sports bras I've ever worn. I'm a 46G, and I know how difficult it is to find a good bra (regular or sports), so I definitely speak from experience.

If you search Google you can probably find a good deal on an Enell - I just bought one for $25 through a Google search! (They're pretty pricey $60+ otherwise)

Seriously though, they're worth their weight in gold - this is an investment, not just something we wear for the heck of it ;D

Thanks, everyone, for posting. I need to find a sports bra and am far bigger than the sizes I've found...

I've been having similar issues trying to find something supportive enough for running. What seems to work pretty well for me is doing a combination of 2 cheaper sports bras. I get one of the "encapsulating" sports bras (has separate cups) that is suppose to be supportive but isn't very ($14 at Walmart) and then I put a super cheap compression bra over the top of it (3 for $10 at Walmart). Together they work great, separately they are both pretty useless. Good luck finding something that works well for you.

Thanks Diane! I have a very expensive bra (regular one) that I am using, but it just doesn't have the support for jogging in place, etc. What gets me is the medium support sports bras that say they are good for running??? REALLY. Have you tried to run with these boobs...think NOT!

I agree that a good bra is important and worth spending extra money on.

I have never found a sports bra that I liked. I have found some good bras with cotton cups, wide straps, and good support. (Of course I wear them under a t-shirt. I am sure I would do the same even if I found a sports bra I liked.) Personally, I like separate cups and not the compression models. I bought my last bras at Pennington's in Canada and they went up to cup H.

I tried Lane Bryant in the US and was very disappointed.

Playtex Bali goes up to J online, but the actual store I visited in NH did not go up nearly that high. They did go up to at least DD. I don't remember where they stopped. Just that they had nothing for me, and sent me to Lane Bryant next door which was worse. They had larger band sizes, but smaller cup sizes.

Here are a couple of links I found that you may find helpful:

I get frustrated with the world wanting us to all be small and skinny, yet they don't make the proper fitness clothing and support that we need/desire to help get us there!!

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I'm about the same size. The only suggestion I have is to try Lane Bryant. But you have to be fitted because their bras run differently. I ordered a few different sports bras, very nice, and in a 42 D. I couldn't even begin to get one on. I didn't go for the bra fitting because I've gone down from losing weight and I can't imagine what size I would go up to in their world. I've not found anything else yet.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

You would think this would be easy...but not when you are a 40DDD. I have found up to 38D is all.....anyone have any ideas?? I would even spend more than usual if needed, but can't find CRAP! HELP!
