You order them by shirt size (or maybe one size smaller) and pay $20-$30 each for them. They're terrific because they do NOT have under-wires, hooks, adjusters or anything else that pinches, binds, or otherwise makes you miserable! I love them! Mon, 21 May 2012 12:13:22 EST FINALLY! A Great Sports Bra for Us! Over the years I have struggled to find the right bra to wear when exercising. Those things they call "sports bras"? They don't cut it for my girls.

Seems I went from no boobs to a D cup in a couple of years. I was a D when I went into high school, DD when I left. Over the years and after having 3 kids, I find myself in a 38N. Until recently, I haven't had any real back problems, and some seem to be stress related. All my pain appears to be in my upper back, around my shoulder blades. There were even a couple of nights last week that I got cramps in my back when I tried to settle into bed, mostly on my back....

Do the boobs go with the weight? Thu, 15 Sep 2011 14:41:54 EST Strange question fat & weight of breast? As big breasted women do you find losing body fat % a slow moving thing for you since our boobs are made of fatty tissue ? I am beginning to believe that is why my body fat % has only dropped about 4 to 5 % I would imagine my boobs are accounting for at least 6 pounds of my body weight. <BR> <BR> Body % test is measuring the fat you are carrying around I don't think it makes acceptations for large breast <BR> <BR> Any ideas ? <BR> <BR> Thu, 15 Sep 2011 13:41:48 EST It's time... for me to buy some new bras. <BR> <BR> I'd love to hear what brands/styles are your favorites. <BR> <BR> I'm a DD and after nursing three kids, my girls aren't as perky as they used to be.

Wed, 10 Aug 2011 12:55:39 EST Hilarious Story Warning to all your ladies who have "ladies" that are bigger than average: BEWARE SPACE MOUNTAIN! LOL. Recently my family and I took a trip to Disney World and of course we rode as many rides as we could fit in. So I had already ridden splash mountain, thunder mountain, and teacups with NO issues. The girls were snug in their bra home. Then we rode Space Mountain and you would think I wasn't even WEARING a bra. The girls not only were popping out of the bra, but they were popping out of... Wed, 3 Aug 2011 21:40:50 EST Just Want to Say I'm actually happy to know I'm not the only one with huge knockers! I thought I was crazy even searching for a big boobs team. <BR> <BR> That being said, 30DS sucks. Between weak ankles and big boobs, jumping jacks do not happen. I feel like I'm cheating, but I bring my arms up and do a squat instead jumping. <BR> <BR> The first day I did 30DS I actually tried the jumping jacks and BROKE one of my bras. That was discouraging, but hasn't stopped me! Fri, 15 Jul 2011 02:31:44 EST Finally! I'm so happy to find a place were there are other women who struggle to exercise with big breasts. I love mine and wouldn't change them for anything, but being a 36DDD makes it not only hard to shop for clothes, but to exercise as well. I look forward to getting to know you all. :) Tue, 12 Jul 2011 15:57:15 EST OMG I can use my mini trampoline no black eyes Oh yes I can - without knocking myself out or giving myself black eyes <em>246</em> Tonight I pulled out my mini trampoline for the hell of it since I lost 2" from my bust and down 2 cup sizes.

I was living off two pretty worn out bras for a long time. Finally after I decided they were kind of torn up enough I went to go get a few new bras. I also hate that process, it's a pain in the butt. well, I got the lady to measure me, and she said I went down a band size!! I stayed the same cup size, but she said that cup sizes changes with band sizes (didn' t know that). I was so excited that I bought 3 bras!! So far I have lost 18 pounds, and it just feels so great to have something tellin... Thu, 5 May 2011 12:39:34 EST sports bras Anyone have any good stores they recommend buying sports bras from? I have two that I rotate but they really are not supportive when trying to run or do jumping jacks. Also, should I get sports bras that have individual cups? Right now i have the "shelf" type.

Hi everyone, My name is Nikki! I am so glad to have found this group! It does get lonely when having to struggle with a problem tha no one quite understands! I think the one thing that scares me the most about losing weight is not being able to hide my chest size with my fat, and then getting all the nasty comments and unwanted attention. But after reading some posts and hearing about your tips and tricks I will hopefully be able to embrace me for me! Wed, 26 Jan 2011 14:21:41 EST I <3 my boobs Hello Ladies!

Sun, 25 Jul 2010 11:58:23 EST Only busty bridesmaid... Hey girls! I know I haven't been here for a while but felt like sharing this. <BR> <BR> I saw a photo of what my bridesmaid dress will be for my friend's wedding next year and it's strapless. FUN!!! There's nothing I love more than a strapless bra (note the sarcasm). <BR> <BR> Not surprising when you consider that the bride and her maid of honor are both A cups. Hopefully my lovely lady lumps will shrink with the rest of me before then :) Fri, 11 Jun 2010 22:33:02 EST Just for fun So, just for fun, what other uses do you have for your girls? What can you do that the flat chested ladies can't? <BR> <BR> My girls keep my lap clean. No falling food reaches it! Tue, 11 May 2010 02:51:28 EST Hi Hi I'm new to SP and found this group by accident. I have always been big chested and am currently between a 38 D and 38DD going more towards the DD side. It's interesting to see that that's on the small side for this group. Being "gifted" can definitely make some exercises a hassle (running)and I'm looking forward to getting tips and advice and possible giving them as well if I can. I'm hoping that as I lose weight I will go to a D. Fri, 19 Mar 2010 16:19:15 EST I am new. Hi, I'm Stef, and I'm new to the team. I found it by accident, on a link in another team that I joined after looking at the sparkpage of someone who posted a comment that I liked in the forums. And I'm really glad I found it. <BR> <BR> I've been "chestly blessed" since I was in 6th grade (a C at that point), and I still haven't stopped growing. At this point, I'm halfway down the alphabet in US-sized cups (38L), and darn close in UK bras (38HH). I, like a few others I've seen, also have ... Mon, 15 Mar 2010 14:44:46 EST Conundrum So, here is the question. Even when I lose the weight, will I be able to find a swim suit? They all seem to have these foam C cups in them. <BR> <em>344</em> Mon, 15 Mar 2010 03:47:24 EST Boobs haha Okay I have the sense of humor of a 13 year old :) I'm Leslie, I live in Colorado, and I have big boobs, although not as big as a lot of you ladies. I'm around a 38DD although I do not have hips or an ass to compensate! I've learned to live with the fact that I will always look bigger than I am because of the boobs. I look forward to getting to know the other ladies of the group! <BR> <BR> Leslie Mon, 22 Feb 2010 18:52:17 EST Howdy Girls! Hey, <BR> <BR> I'm new to SP and am looking for teams to join. I'm currently wearing 40 DD and 42D's. It's strange to be in a group where that's on the small side! <BR> <BR> A few weeks ago, I reached my first weight loss goal of being 200lbs, and as a reward I wanted to get clothes to wear to the gym (I currently only swim there, and figure I'd get weird looks if I took a spin class in my speedo). I've got everything but the sports bra. Bra shopping is my nightmare. Not to mention I d... Fri, 5 Feb 2010 17:04:19 EST No Butts About It :( I've always carried my weight in my torso, although I don't exactly qualify as an apple shape. A LOT of my weight is in my chest. <BR> <BR> So... now I've lost 10+ lbs on Spark People, and my waist is getting much more defined, which is great to see. Of course, no difference in bra size yet... <BR> <BR> Meanwhile, my hips and butt are getting BONY. I don't like it. I feel like my hips are getting POINTY, and according to the BMI charts I still have about 7 lbs to lose to be a healthy weight... Thu, 4 Feb 2010 03:52:24 EST Good clothing brands for busty figures? We all may be different sizes, but I'm wondering if you have recommendations for clothing brands that are cut "curvier" on top. I don't just necessarily mean bigger. <BR> <BR> I will start with a few ideas, please post any that you have. <BR> <BR> * TORRID - Plus sizes. Lots of sexy, curvy tops. I know some big-busted ladies who love Torrid. The styles can be a bit over-the-top sexy. And since I'm not a plus size (and not tall), it's not really my thing. <BR> <BR> * ANN TAYLOR / ANN TAYLO... Mon, 1 Feb 2010 04:13:11 EST Best Sports Bra Ever Hello, ladies! <BR> <BR> I found the best sports bra ever, and it was made by a company called Enell. (no, I don't work for them!) <BR> <BR> My name is Christina, and I used to be a 34/36 H or J, (depending on the style/maker). I have never been one whose breasts got smaller when I lose weight, just my rib measurements. <BR> <BR> Anyway, the Enell bras are powerful and comfortable. The woman I spoke with on the phone helped me so much! (Now they have a website.) Because my rib measure wa... Sat, 9 Jan 2010 17:57:54 EST New to the Group Hello Ladies, I was pleasantly surprised to see this group. I have had big boobs since I started developing. I always joked that I never needed a training bra because my girls never needed training. I now wear a 48K and have to order my bras made be Goddess from Wed, 30 Dec 2009 16:47:16 EST Hi! I'm Vee I am probably older than most you ladies on here, but I was looking for a team like this, I have to wear custom bras, store bought ones do not fit. We dont' have bra shops in the area I live in, or anywhere in the state that I know of. I order mine by mail from a lady in Iowa. <BR> <BR> I am a 44I and thats pretty big, which I hate, I know when I lose weight they will shrink, which I am looking forward too. When I lost 100 pounds about 12 years ago they were in the normal medium size range... Sun, 27 Dec 2009 17:24:14 EST Sagging I am known for my chest. Unfortunately. <BR> <BR> I am worried that when I get to my goal weight they will be down to my waist....any ideas???? lol Fri, 11 Dec 2009 10:08:45 EST hi! i'm new hello everyone. i'm new to sp and i think this is a good team to join. i used to wear 40B but in the past two years i've jumped to 42DD. i never even knew that a DD cup existed. anyway, thankfully i'm tall but it still distorts the way i look in clothes. i've quit jogging and i have back aches sometimes. i have some tips i will share with members in later posts. remain blessed all and enjoy your day <em>252</em> Tue, 17 Nov 2009 08:35:02 EST so damn frustrated Hey guys, sorry to vent here but i know you will listen, in fact ive gotten more responses from this team than some others ive joined so thanks for being so helpful and wonderful!! love ya guys! <BR> i'm beyond frustrated. the scale hasnt moved in over a month. my target line says i should be ten pounds lighter than i am right now. im doing everything i should be doing and nothing is working. ive upped my workouts, two to three times a week 47 minutes on the elliptical, than the other two or ... Tue, 6 Oct 2009 11:22:04 EST Let's try and get some excitement on this team... This team has been pretty dormant for a while now. Let's see what we can all do to make this fun. This is one team that all of our girls will benefit from. <BR> <BR> Let's try to do some daily goals.. <BR> <BR> Let's huddle everyday even if its something silly. <BR> <BR> Let's log in everyday (which I am guilty of not doing) <BR> <BR> Put something on the message boards.. <BR> <BR> If you are having an issue chances are somebody else is having the same issue. Bring it up maybe we can w... Fri, 2 Oct 2009 10:22:40 EST Fitting Room Frustration I went to a local Playtex outlet store and was frustrated to see that the largest cup size they carried in most bras was a DD. There were very few DDD even! <BR> <BR> I wear a 38G now, and with nothing even approaching that in the store now had a flashback to being a kid. I wore a DDD back then and cried in frustration at the lack of any suitable bras. A few tears escaped at the store and my husband held me before we tried to exit quickly. <BR> <BR> I admit that I'm having a little bit ... Sun, 16 Aug 2009 13:51:19 EST What the hell!!??!!! Ok so I've lost 15 lbs..yay me! so i go bra shopping last night, not because my old ones dont fit but because they have large holes in them :) So I go shopping for the bras and I am trying them on in the fitting room and im finding that I think my boobs have grown! Usually boob weight goes once your start excercising but i could hardly find any bras that fit me and i wear a 42DD so its hard to find them anyways! I found that my "cups were overflowing". Anyone else not lose boob weight in this... Thu, 13 Aug 2009 15:03:54 EST washing your bras Okay ladies, help me out, please. How do you wash your bras, and how often? I used to just wash and dry them with the rest of the laundry, once a week. For the last 2-3 years I've actually been fitted and wear the correct size, but until last month or so I continued the practice (mostly beacuse I'd lost 50 pounds so I know the bras weren't fitting right anyway). <BR> <BR> Last month I was refitted and bought 2 new bras (40G instead of 48G, that's what a 50lb loss will do to you, lol). I've... Sun, 26 Jul 2009 14:49:57 EST Hi everyone! Hey girls! I'm kinda new to SP (joined at the end of June) and just stumbled upon this group. HOLY CRAP!! OTHER GIRLS HAVE BIG BOOBS LIKE ME! <BR> <BR> I've always had big girls but the bigger I got the bigger they got. I've been in a bra since 4th grade and I remember a guy writing in my 7th grade yearbook to keep my boobs because they were great. That was just the beginning of it. I hated not wearing cute shirts b/c of the girls or fitting into a Large or XL because of them alone. <BR> <... Thu, 16 Jul 2009 20:41:47 EST Exercising with oversized "girls"? I don't know about you guys, but all of my life I have HATED to exercise because 1) the catcalls/rude comments from classmates in school left me gun-shy about running or doing any strenuous physical activity publicly; 2) it HURTS! Even with the best sports bra, these things bounce up and down, leaving my chest and back sore; and 3) they are in the way! The weight bench and most upper-body exercise machines at the gym really aren't made to accommodate this kind of girth at the chest level. <B... Wed, 17 Jun 2009 11:09:29 EST New to the team, not to the boobs Hello, fellow zaftig ladies! <BR> <BR> I've had big boobs since I was in, what, seventh grade? I generally buy my bras from England. Even as I lose weight, I swear, the girls haven't decreased at all. <BR> <BR> I'm a 38H, and have been for a couple years. I'm hoping that it'll decrease as I lose more, except everyone says that the boobs are the first things that girls lose--and I haven't lost an inch. Tue, 16 Jun 2009 11:09:46 EST Dealing with unwanted comments? I am so annoyed when I get unwanted comments (from men or women) about my chest size. Usually something along the lines of "Are those real?" or "Wow, those are huge!" How do you respond to this? <BR> <BR> Personally, I'm appalled at their rudeness, so I say something like, "Wow, what a rude thing to ask!" and that reminds them that it is not something you ask a total stranger. Anyway, I'm curious: how do you respond to comments like this? Mon, 15 Jun 2009 16:05:17 EST Sitting Up Straight So lately I've been trying this new thing where I sit up straight when I'm at the computer. It's really been working the muscles in my mid- to upper-back, which aren't really used to holding up my chest so much. So now I've decided that I NEED to do some back exercises to help out with that. <BR> <BR> Here are a couple that I think I'll try: <BR> Back Extensions <link><BR>es.asp?exercise=147 </link> <BR> Superman <link> Sun, 10 May 2009 08:04:39 EST
