We Found the Best Sports Bras for Large Busts, According to Customer Reviews

These Are the Best Sports Bra for Large Busts



It's true: Having a good array of workout wares makes working out so much easier—and way more comfortable. Sure, that five-mile run might not seem so appealing, but the feeling of accomplishment that'll come after you're done (plus the fact that your running shoes make it feel like you're walking on a cloud) is reason enough to get out the door. A good pair of sweat-wicking leggings—bonus if they transition from barre class to brunch in seconds—is another sporty essential that has the power to get you up from the couch and sprinting lakeside.

Which leads us to today's focus: sports bras, and, more specifically, the absolute best sports bras for large busts. There definitely isn't a one-size-fits-all type of bra, as everyone prefers something different in terms of support, strap width, and back design. Ladies with bigger busts are going to like what they see below. How do we know? Real women wrote some pretty great testaments about them. According to reviews, the sports bras below offer amazing support, good coverage, and most importantly, a high level of comfort.

1. Zella Studio Lite Longline Bra

"I can't imagine finding one thing wrong with this sports bra. In fact, I have never found much wrong with any of Zella's products. I am size 12/14 with a 40DD chest. I ordered the Xlarge only because I don't like the wrestling match with size large sports bra. Not only does this one go one easily but it fits perfectly without squishing the girls. They're happy, I'm happy, and we all should be happy for Zella." —Nordstrom Reviewer

2. Glamorize High Impact Wonderwire Sports Bra

"I wear a 38G, so that's what I ordered. The bra fits perfectly. It's supportive, provides full coverage, and cuts down on bounce dramatically. I'm very active, and the bra holds me up on the elliptical and sprinting and everything else. I couldn't be happier. The material is strong, and the fit is comfortable. I don't have any problems with the material rolling or puckering. This would suggest to me that those reviewers who have experienced that may have ordered the wrong size." —Amazon Reviewer

3. Wacoal High Impact Underwire Sports Bra

"I wear this bra for daily activities and exercise. I have this bra in a 40D and feel like it's supportive but not too constricting. The back strap has three clasps, The shoulder straps are thick and adjustable. The back also has a "v-back" design which is great for people who have issues with straps falling or slipping off shoulders. The straps on this bra stay put. Highly recommend this bra and the Wacoal brand." Nordstrom Reviewer

4. Freya Sonic Underwire Sports Bra

"Um, just totally love this bra. I'm a size 32DDD and I'm currently working out at Orange Theory Fitness doing a lot of circuit training and running. It's really hard to find a supportive bra that doesn't look awful with extreme coverage. This however fits fabulously, is comfortable, super supportive and love cut enough not to stick out of my tank tops. I bought three of them since they were on sale. Well played Freya"Nordstrom Reviewer

5. Wacoal High Impact Underwire Sports Bra

"I always wear a Wacoal sports bra since I am large chested and I workout a lot. This is the first time I bought this style, fantastic. Great quality, comfortable and really covers everything no bouncing during workout. I wear a size 34ddd. True to size. Important this is first time I can wear cross band. So happy with this bra. Hope they make more colors. I am ordering a second one. Very happy, thank you Nordstrom."—Nordstrom Reviewer

6. Natori Yogi Convertible Sports Bra

"I have a large chest and need a lot of support for riding horses. This bra does a great job of keeping my chest secure and supported with minimal bounce. I'm a 36DDD"Nordstrom Reviewer

7. Syrokan Sports Bra

"My fellow big-busted sisters know the struggle for a sports bra. To find a sports bra that offers support, doesn't kill your shoulders, minimizes jiggle, doesn't create an armpit bulge, or doesn't make you want to die with the amount of boob sweat—we've all been there. As a 36H, I was pretty resigned to paying $80+ for decent bras I can only wear for a few hours before my shoulders and neck beg me to take them off. This sports bra is a GAME CHANGER, and at a great price! The dual straps/back design don't kill my shoulders and it actually FITS… I'll absolutely repurchase because this is honestly the holy grail of sports bras for me, and at a price where I can afford multiple bras!" Amazon Reviewer

8. Wacoal Contour Underwire Sports Bra

"I really like this bra. As a 38DDD, bras tend to dig in my shoulders and ride up in the back. This does neither. I don't like underwires but need one, and this is the best." Nordstrom Reviewer

9. Elomi Energize Sports Bra

"I'm 67 years old and a 40DD bra size. One of the first things I do when I know I'm home for the night is lose the bra. Well, I had no desire to take this one off, so I kept it on, slept with it on, and the only reason I took it off the next morning was to shower and put on a clean one. I'm a fan of the retro-chic model for its support, but this one will look much smoother under some of my sheerer blouses." Nordstrom Reviewer

10. Le Mystere Active Balance Underwire Sports Bra

"Bra number 4 just bought. I mean, it's perfect. I wear it on a daily, and I'm absolutely thrilled with it. The band is a little larger." Nordstrom Reviewer

11. Yianna Sports Bra

"I'm very heavy-chested, and it's hard finding a sports bra that fits me and really cute, not plain. This is perfect. Fits just like it's supposed to, and I love how the straps crisscross. It's unique in design, and black is my favorite color, so this has become my favorite bra." — Amazon Reviewer

12. Hanes Women's Comfort Evolution Bra

 "This is easily the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. Adequate support without underwire? What is this sorcery?  In case, it is wasn't clear how much I love this bra, I've been an Amazon customer for years, and this is the only product I've ever bought that I felt strongly enough to go back and write a review for. Just sayin'."— Amazon Reviewer

13. Nike Indy Sports Bra

"I have a large chest and I love this sports bra. I played tennis and cycling comfortably. If I moved on the court more, I may need additional support. I loved it so much that I ordered a second one. I felt 3x fit my 44DD. Easy to put on and take off and comfortable to wear." Nordstrom Reviewer

14. Adidas Ultimate Zip Front Sports Bra

"This is such a comfortable bra. Just received in the mail and fits like a glove. Doesn’t hurt shoulder and doesn’t hurt boobs or underarms. It’s like a dream come true. Something comfy and no wires with the perfect amount of support for everyday is just what I needed. I have a shoulder blade injury so it also feels great in the back. Loving this bra already within the first 20 minutes of wearing it."Amazon Reviewer

15. Glamorize Elite Performance No-Bounce Cami Wirefree Sports Bra

"Some reviews said to buy a cup size up—I bought one in my normal cup size and one up, but prefer my normal cup size. The one-cup-up bra puckers a little in the heart area. I love the piece of fabric that covers the cleavage. No one's looking in downward dog, of course, but this is more comfortable for me because I like lower V-neck T-shirt for yoga. This is my new go-to low to a medium-impact sports bra. I can't wear it all day, though, because the stitching on the interior of the body band below the cups is raised too high and rubs against sensitive skin. Good for yoga; they must take it off. For high impact, I'll probably stay with the Ennel bra: true workhorses for large cup sizes, and they last FOREVER!" — Amazon Reviewer

16. C9 Champion Support Seamless Cami Bra

"I really like this sports bra. It’s not overly padded where my chest feels too stiff, it’s comfortable and lightweight. I am a 34 DDD and I got a large, fits good!"Amazon Reviewer

17. Syrokan High-Impact Workout Sports Bra

"I wear a 38D, and this bra is awesome! The cushioned straps are comfortable and don't dig in, the dry-wick fabric keeps you from getting a pool of sweat in your cleavage, the bottom band is tight but not pinchy, and even with jumping up and down, there's little to no bounce. Downward dog without your girls hitting you in the chin. Cardio with confidence. The only negative is that the sides up to where the straps begin do cut in a little bit, but they don't pinch or chafe. When you're big-busted, you know that this is fairly normal, and this is the least amount I've experienced since the girls made their appearance 24 years ago. Big-boob ladies, rejoice! We've found a good and affordable sports bra." Amazon Reviewer

18. Glamorise No Bounce Sports Bra

"My search for a sports bra is finally over!! No longer do I have to stuff myself into three sports bras, crushing my bosom and my soul, to be able to get a good workout. My 36G bust is fully supported in this bra - it's comfortable, easy to put on, and cute! I especially like the panel that prevents too much cleavage, which has always been a problem for me. Now I can go to the gym without feeling self conscious. I'll definitely be purchasing more."Amazon Reviewer

19. Girlfriend Collective Paloma Sports Bra

"I love the longline style of this bra. It’s super supportive, but also very flattering. I own multiple colors of this style and will definitely buy more. The girlfriend collective brand is great overall!"—Shop Bop Reviewer

20. Champion Vented Compression Sports Bra

"This is a great compression bra. I am a 42DDD and the 3x works great!!! Being a well-endowed girl I was scared this would be too small but it is perfect."Amazon Reviewer

21. Jockey Adjustable Molded Cup Sport Bra

"This bra holds me well, gives support, and feels like I have a foundation to rest upon. It's also sturdy and well-made and very stretchy in all the right places. Another plus is that it actually makes my larger-than-normal figure look like it's got some honest-to-goodness cleavage. Having this one allows me to throw my uncomfortable underwire bras out into the garbage."Amazon Reviewer

22. Panache Underwire Sports Bra

"For this 36FF/36H (who previously thought she was a 40DD/40E) user, this bra holds breasts in place without forcing, stretching, or compressing them. They aren't flattened out or squished into cones. I've only worn it once, but so far so good! Turning, bending, twisting, running, stretching didn't challenge this bra at all. I have a lot of anxiety about the appearance of my low, post-weight-loss, stretch-marked breasts, and this bra fits so well that it lets me forget my concerns!"—Nordstrom Reviewer

23. Le Mystere Hi-Impact Underwire Sports Bra

"I bought the 36DD and at first it looked like a lot of bra; it felt restrictive, and the underwire was a new feature for me for a sports bra. I took it out for a six-mile trail run to test it out, and I totally forgot about it because it was so comfortable and I was able to just focus on my run. I definitely recommend this to women who have similar dimensions and struggle to find the right support. "—Nordstrom Reviewer

24. Nike Bold High-Support Underwire Sports Bra 

"Call me vain, but while I need a lot of support in a sports bra, I still want my bra to be cute! When spinning in a studio, I often take my tank off a little bit during class, so an attractive bra is a must. This bra fits the bill! It’s incredibly supportive for high energy studio spin classes and easy to put on. "—Nike Reviewer

25. Knix Catalyst Sports Bra

"This is the best sports bra. I used to double up with sports bras but I don't need to anymore. Not only does this bra hold the girls in place, but it is also comfortable on your rib cage. It's the ultimate win in sports bras. "—Knix Reviewer
