Best Sports Bras for Large Breasts

It’s that time of year when everyone is working on getting better bodies for summer time! One of the most exciting parts of working out (for me) is buying cute gym outfits! I know it sounds silly, but I feel like I am more motivated to work out when I have cute stuff to wear.

One of the things that I’ve struggled with is buying sports bras that are supportive enough to keep my girls tucked in and comfortable. Being that I am a D-DD cup, this is not an easy feat to find sportsbras for large breasts. There are so many brands out there claiming their bras are great for high impact performance, but yet they are made out of 95% spandex and have straps that dig and can’t support anything. Sure, they’re cute, but when it comes to sports bras, I want something that works!

Here are some of my favourites:

Under Armour Bra


This one is the most supportive of all the sports bras I’ve tried. It is also the most expensive, at $69.99CAD. It’s full coverage with removable pads, so there’s no showing of anything and it adds a maximum amount of support to the already supportive construction. The bra does feel a bit tight at first, (I’m sure it’s needed for the support) but there is no pinching or digging. It’s one of my faves and I find it the best sports bra for running, and definitely worth the money if you’ve got it. It comes in a tonne of sizes, so if you have a bigger bust like D and DD cups, you get a bra that fits you perfectly.

Another one of my favourite padded compression sports bra is this one by UA.  It features a front zip closure, which I know some of us prefer.

Champion Women’s Front Zip Sports Bra

Another one that’s gotten some rave reviews and isn’t too expensive is this Champion one. It features a fast fastening front zip closure, adjustable straps, and is fuller coverage to ensure that your boobs are situated. The removable foam cups ensure that you don’t have a “headlight” situation, and the moisture wicking fabric helps keep you feel dry and comfortable. Since the bra only comes in basic XS-XL sizes, it may be hard to find the perfect fit.

It comes in a variety of colors, check them out here.

La Isla Women’s High Impact Front Zipper Sports Bra



This one’s new to me, but it has gotten some amazing reviews and a lot of busty women seem to love this front closing, high support choice. It comes in various cup and band sizes, so you can get one that fits you perfectly. This is a high impact bra that promises to hold you in, with super smooth fabric that wicks moisture and prevents chafing.

The only inconsistency is that the listing suggests sizing up, while some people found that they would have fit their regular size perfectly after ordering the suggested larger size.

These come in so many cure colors, so if you’re into coordinating your gym outfits, definitely check these out! 

Old Navy Active Sports Bras

I was actually surprised with this one! I saw these on sale for under $10, I bought one, and returned to buy them in a few more colours! There are a few styles that they offer, but I bought the ones with the removable padding and they come out with new cute colours every season! Not as supportive is the Under Armour, but I am more than happy with its performance, especially for the price. There is a bit of bounce with these, but when I’m just lifting weights, this bra works just fine. I also love the thicker back band, which helps hide my back fat when I’m wearing my Waistshaperz (hehehehe). I HAVE done HIIT Plyometrics workouts using this bra, the bounce is not as bad as many other bras I’ve tried. I have never had any slippage or anything pop out, which is a lot more than I can say for many other brands. The bra is full coverage on me, so even when there is bouncing, there isn’t any “jiggling” happening allover the place. I definitely recommend this if you can’t afford the UA one. Shop their online store!

Double Up!

Sometimes, you just HAVE to. Unfortunately, sometimes, you just can’t find anything better than just layering two bras. I highly suggest getting a full coverage granny looking bra (yes – with the extra wide straps, and 3-4 hook closure, preferably wire free, like this one) and layering that under a cute, but less supportive bra like the ones by Dona Jo. This is the ONLY way I’ve made use of all the not-so-supportive-but-cute sports bras I’ve collected over the years. If you can’t afford the UA bra, maybe try layering two of the Old Navy bras. I haven’t tried it myself, but I can only imagine that the amount of support you get would be amazing!
