Best Sports Bras for Busty Babes

Best Sports Bras for Busty Babes

All sports bras are not created equal, particularly if your boobs are of the DD variety. Also, a crop top does not equal a bra, especially if you’re packing anything more than a waif thin Insta-celeb’s chest.

We well-endowed girls face a double-whammy (pardon the pun) of an issue. First, if you want to exercise, you need to make sure you’re well and truly strapped in to prevent some pretty major discomfort and long-term tissue damage. Second, crop top becoming synonymous with sports bra, which means you can’t risk ordering a “sports bra” online that turns out to be a mere display shelf for your assets. Lucky for you, we’ve done the leg work to track down the best for your breasts, and most of them are from our favourite local suppliers, too!

1. Nike Pro Hero Bra

This one has thick straps that won’t cut in, and sits high on the chest so you’re not giving the rest of your CrossFit class a peep show!

2. Heroine Sport V Bra

Whether yoga or cardio is your workout of choice, this bra will see you through. The thick strap at the back makes it extra supportive, while the V at the front keeps it from falling into grandma territory.

3. Vixen Spearmint Sports Bra

When something says “maximum support” on the label, you know you’ll be covered! The front zip means more structure at the back, and no bounce on the treadmill.

4. Wellicious Control Bra

According to stockist Fire and Shine, “everybody who has tried this bra loves it!”, and if that ain’t enough of an endorsement, we don’t know what is. Plus, the T-back means no stray straps peeking out during barre class.

5. No Bounce Crop Top

Okay, it has crop top in the name, but it also has no bounce, so that has to count for something. It also comes in almost every colour you can think of, so this Running Bare number gets extra bonus points for that.
