I like that sports bra, but I don't like the fact that it opens and closes in the front. I buy a goddess sport bra which is not as good, but it works and fastings in the front. It's a few dollars cheaper, too.

The best sports bra I've found for the well endowed that want to do higher impact exercise is the Enell bra which can be found at www.enell.com. I'm a 40DD and I run 2-3 times a week and this bra reduces bouncing like nothing I've ever tried. It is not cute or fashionable but it works. It is pricey...about $54 each but it's one of the best investments I've made. Check out the website and get a list of retailers. This way you can have them size you and show you how to put it on properly.
Happy bra shopping,

I have this one - the info is from the Sears website, but I bought it from a local lingerie store:
Catriona LeMay Doan By Warner's® Women's Full-Figure Sports Bra
firm support 2-ply, molded cups help define and support mesh front for ventilation cushioned shoulder straps wide bottom band helps keep garment in place cotton-elastane-other fibres hand wash style #3200 adjustable straps and back-hook closure hang to dry
It says that it's full-figure, but it only goes up to 40DD... I wear it in a 36DD, and I am a 36DD / 38D +/-.
I can run it it without additional support, so it meets my criteria.

Does anyone have suggestions for a good sport bra for large busted women? Nike stopped making the one I really like and I am still to big to fit the Champion sports bra. Right now I am using the Maia bra. It really is not giving me the support I need. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
