Too bad the author of this question cancelled the account. I'd like to find a comfortable one.

Not really. After I work out I shower and change into a clean one. I find them far more comfortable than regular bras and at my age (54) it's more about comfort than "boosting" up.

Nope. I wear my sports bra more than my regular bra and I find that the regular bra is so uncomfortable. I basically live in my sports bras.

That's all I wear. And I wear them to bed. I have never been able to stand any sort of jiggling going on up there. Thankfully my chest is small 😂

Nope, mine are pretty comfortable.

Usually time the gym after other things so that I can go home and change but if not - the sports bra stays on until I am home.

@hawkthree Thanks for your post. So glad I am not the only one that can't wear generic sports bras comfortably. With fit arm muscles, long upper body, asymmetrical (one much larger than the other), large around but flatter breast, and gravity taking a toll on youthful perk, the choices offered in sports bras, don't make for happiness. I should have worded my question, "When you take off your sweaty sports bra, do you don another, or go for the lingerie or underwear bra?

Mine come off as soon as possible, almost always. They're usually way too sweaty and gross by the time I'm done working out, and I often find the straps chafe if I leave one on too long.

As for sizing, at 32DDD it's (personally) just not comfortable to wear a sports/compression bra all day, even if it is a perfect fit. And yes - mine fit properly. I have a couple minimal support sport bras I wear for dance practice, and those are much more comfortable... but they're also minimal coverage, so I'm still not going to wear them in public.

I only wear mine to work out. I much prefer the look of a standard bra under clothes and I don't mind wearing a bra- in fact, I don't like the sensation of being without one so I usually wear one to sleep in as well.
I'm a 34D.

Oh, I take off my bra if sweaty, but I put an identical one back on for all day wear. Most tell me that they take off their sports bra because it is uncomfortable for all day wear. It is my opinion, that any bra that is uncomfortable for all day wear, is an ill fitting bra and not giving the back and boob support it should. A sports doctor started my quest for my perfect sports bra years ago. She said, "Any bra that you cannot wear all day in comfort, is a damaging bra, not a therapeutic one." A compression bra should not be binding tight, just snug. Large boobs ladies may not get the lift and look they want, but health and comfort are more important that looks IMO.

i only wear mine for the express purpose of working out, and i do take it off right after b/c i don't like sweaty bra feeling. i'm a c/d cup, and prefer front-zip bras because i hate fighting to get out of a sweaty one!

Interesting blog. I've been customizing store bought bras. The straps are never long enough and kill my shoulders. Also my shoulders are slightly different heights, so I usually mod for that as well. I have the sewing skills to add to the strap up top. Sometimes I'll buy one that's too big around and modify it so that the back straps are closer together.

There is no such thing as the final success in life. What is really meaningful is the courage to face the next minute, the next hour, the next day.

Yikes! I immediately remove my sweaty bra after the workout. No bacteria for me than you very much.

I don't! I love mine and wear it all day! Please answer yes or no and give your bust measure and size of sports bra worn. Please read my latest blog about this. I hope I can help someone find the comfort I have. Thanks, Faetta
