Busty. Shapely. Voluptuous. Stacked. Ample.

No matter what you call it, carrying around large melons can only mean one thing when it comes to exercise: bouncing. As a fellow busty girl, I am all too familiar with the saga that is finding the right bras that fit, don't dig into the shoulders, hold 'em up and keep 'em in. And that's just for regular bras meant to be worn during low impact activity. Once we start running, CrossFitting, Yogaing and bootcamping, the melon situation can get out of control.

I am often asked for my fave sports bra but with so many activity levels, breast sizes and particular work out needs, I thought it was best to call in the troops in order to find the best of the best. I asked my Instagram fam to chime in and over 50 of my fellow well endowed followers sent me their fave bras, their activity level/work out style and their cup size. Ladies, let me just say this: we have you covered from cup sizes C-J/K, all range of activity levels and all price points. 

It's one hell of a list.

Our Ultimate Sports Bras For Large Busts is organized by most suggested and then in alphabetical order by brand, with commentary and bust sizes listed per contributor. As a note, the Lululemon Tata Tamer (both the original and 2.0) was nominated by many but it is not currently in production or available in the retail stores so it didn't make the list. My local Lululemon suggested shopping their outlets and I did spot a few on second hand sites like ThreadUp. 

And, the number one most suggested sports bra for busty girls is the...

  1. Surprised I didn't see the VS Angel Max on here. I just barely qualify as large busted, but I'm pregnant and they hurt all the time, and this keeps them locked and loaded. Their sportswear goes on sale a lot, so I usually snag them when they're under $30.

    1. Another VS bra was recommended by one person but not that one! VS has a fairly small size range compared to a ton on this list (in both band and cup), so I'm guessing thats why :-)
