What about the large bust women that wear a size F or larger? It is extremely hard to find a sports bra that offers a really good fit and doesn't cost an arm and two legs.

We hear you! That's why we over several styles that open in the back or in the front. Two of our customer's favorites are the Jubralee and the Fiona. Both have a plush hook and eye closure in the back and have front adjustable straps to get a customized fit. We also offer a zip-front bra, the Grace II, if you prefer a racerback.

If you are looking for a very supportive bra, may I recommend one of our customer favorites, the Maia. She is an underwire style that provides high impact support with an open back closure. She provides encapsulation support so you don't get that 'squished' feel or look and she is really nice and smooth under workout tops.

We are happy to hear that you like the Vixen. The Grace II also has a racerback and some contouring similar to the Vixen, but she is a zip-front bra so she is extremely easy to get on and off. http://www.movingcomfort.com/Grace-II-C/D/

We are happy to hear you are using our bra finder! No fit system is going to foolproof and the measuring process is simply meant to help guide you to a starting size. 38C and 40B are what we call 'swing sizes.' They are very similar because as a bra band size goes up, the cup size also increases. So you may fit into either of the sizes well depending on the style.

Hi! I tried the bra finder on the Moving Comfort website. I wear a 38C in an underwire bra & the bra finder said that I need a 40B for a sports bra. That seems crazy to me but if you can tell me that that is correct then I'll be buying a new one. Just wanted to make sure! Thanks!

I am wearing Moving Comfort, Vixen style, in a 34-36 C-D. I think it fits very well and feels good. I have a great deal of difficulty removing it, though, after a run. I feel like I'm stressing my shoulders to get it off. Is there a similar fitting style that fastens in the front or is there a trick to getting it off when sweaty??

(I posted this to Introduce Yourself, but thought it might do better here.)

I need a good high-impact sports bra. I am a 40D in regular things, so the normal sports bras just do not provide enough stability or support. I have tried so-called high-impact bras from Champion and one from Macy's, which was not a typical shape sports bra and had good support but still too much motion, without any satisfaction. I want something that holds things up in anatomical position and keeps things in place when jogging or running.

I wear a 38 C. But when I try on sport bras, I can barely get them over my chest without agonizing pain. Help!

I'm interested in purchasing the correct sports bra for my activity, and I tried out your sports bra finder. It gave me great options, but it didn't give me the info I am looking for. I would like to know what type of bra I should be wearing for my different activities. I participate in yoga, walking for fitness and jogging. I am a 36D, and I would like to know if I should choose a compression bra for when I jog or should I go with something else. What suggestions do you have to help me purchase the right type of bra for my varying activities.

Thanks,
Janey

**** PLEASE DO NOT POST TO THIS THREAD.*******

The #1 most important item for women that workout? A properly-fitted sports bra. Unfortunately, 80% of us ladies have it wrong. Donít be a statistic! We want you to find your perfect sports bra and tackle any workout challenge with the proper support.

The women at Moving Comfort, a trusted leader in sports bras, are here to help guide us! Theyíve been making womenís-specific workout apparel for 35 years and biomechanically test their bras on a wide-variety of shapes and sizes. Their commitment to apparel that fits, flatter, and delivers makes them the perfect people to help us out.

Before we get into band and cup-size specifics, there are a few general facts to know before you get started.

Sport Determines Support
The level of impact your fitness routine requires will dictate how much support you need. The bra needs of a centered yogi and a marathon runner will be very different.

Get Measured and Replace your Bras Yearly
Your bra size can change quickly due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, age, and sadly, just plain gravity. In order to maintain a great fit, youíll need to replace your bras every 6-12 months. The fabric and elastics break down with every wear and, just like your running shoes, they will stop working effectively and potentially cause discomfort.

Ready to get started? Check out Moving Comfortís interactive Sports Bra Fitting Room (Adobe Flash required). The sports bra finder will help you get to a starting size so you can begin trying on styles that are right for you. The expert fit tips will show you how to address common fit problems to personalize your support.

Still unsure about getting the right fit? Post your questions here and a fit expert from Moving Comfort will answer them every Tuesday and Thursday from now until August 16.
