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 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 is another sporty essential that has the power to get you up from the couch and sprinting lakeside. Bonus points if they can transition from barre class to brunch in seconds. 

This 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? People 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 Seamless Strappy Sports Bra

"This sports bra fits perfectly! I frequently wear sports bras like this for Pilates or around the house. I would not use it for running. I have a large bust and struggle to find sports bras like this that are tight enough in the band and the straps aren’t too long. This keeps everything in place. For reference, I am a 36 DD and ordered the large." — Nordstrom Reviewer

2. Nike Dri-FIT Indy Padded Strappy Cutout Medium Support Sports Bra

"This bra is a 10/10! It doesn't quite look like the picture, but it still looks great. It fits perfectly - true to size. The material and design make it super breathable. The slit near the middle bottom makes it super breathable and helps prevent sweat. It is perfect for wearing to exercise, sleep, or just casually. The fabric is perfect for keeping cool and staying comfortable. I love this brand and highly recommend it to anyone. " — Nordstrom Reviewer

3. Wacoal Lindsay Sport Underwire T-Shirt Bra

"I buy all my bras from Nordy. They fit me best. I'm large-busted. When I saw this sports bra, I thought it was a little pricey, but the reviews were very positive. So I plunged so happy I did it's like wearing nothing at all. If you're on the fence with this one... JUMP OVER. No regrets.." — Nordstrom Reviewer

4. Zella Luxe Longline Rib Sports Bra

"I’m a 40 DD and the XL fits great. It’s very comfortable and stylish. I can wear it to work out, under a sundress, tank or let it pop thru a button down shirt. Versatile. I love Zella gear." — Nordstrom Reviewer

5. Wacoal Lindsay Sport Underwire T-Shirt Bra

"I buy all my bras from Nordy. They fit me best. I’m lg busted. When I saw this sports bra I thought it was a little pricey but the reviews were very positive. So I plunged so happy I did it’s like wearing nothing at all . If your on the fence on this one ... JUMP OVER No regrets." — 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. Natori Yogi Convertible Sports Bra

"FINALLY, a sports bra that does what it's supposed to! I wear a 32G and have never found a sports bra in my size. [This] fits well, and my girls don't bounce! The band was snug but not uncomfortable like most sports bras. I love the wire on the inside of the bra and the separation I have, no uni-boob. I can wear it with a racerback tee because you can crisscross the straps. It def pulls perspiration away from my body and keeps me cool. Love that! I love that it looks like a tank, so I can wear it without a top, and cool colors are offered. The bra is also less expensive than the one I was wearing and is of better quality. I love it so much that I bought several to wear even when I'm not working out. I definitely recommend it to all, especially my full-busted friends. Winner!." — Nordstrom Reviewer

9. Elomi Energise Sports Bra

"I'm 67 years old and a 40DD bra size. One of the first things I do when I'm home for the night is to 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 Smooth Shape Wireless Padded Bra

"I had my implants removed. I had to go back to “natural” due to ruptures, well my natural was no breasts as I had silicone. As of today, this is the only bra that I wear. I can put “cutlets, fake push-up, so I don’t look completely flat”. Not noticeable at all. This is the same brand I wore prior to removal. So thank you Le Mystere. No matter what the reason, we all like to feel like a woman!!." — Nordstrom Reviewer

11. Yianna Sports Bra

"I'm very heavy-chested, and it's hard finding a sports bra that fits me and is 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 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 Alate Dri-FIT Sports Bra

"Only sports bra I can find that is comfortable and fits a 32G." — Nordstrom Reviewer

14. Just My Size Active Lifestyle Wirefree Bra

"This is such a comfortable bra. Just received it in the mail, and it fits like a glove. Doesn't hurt my shoulder and doesn't hurt my 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 I 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-shirts for yoga. This is my new go-to for a low-to-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. It 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, and 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!" — Shopbop 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. New Balance Fuel Crossback Sports Bra

"I have this bra in multiple colors. It's super comfortable. Provides great support for running with my D-size chest. Love how it looks, and it's easy to put on. I hope they will never discontinue it."—Nordstrom Reviewer

23. Kindred Bravely Sublime Nursing 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. 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, 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

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
