I've just started the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and desperately need a better sports bra.

Are the moving comfort ones any good? Or am I better off going with Adidas or Berli?

I'm about a 16 DD and need some serious support, any recs greatly appreciated original.gif

I'm a G and I use a max sports wirefree  I buy from Bravissimo in the UK.  I can jump on a trampoline and everything still feels contained. but it does squash you in and together which I know some people dislike.

I wear a Berli sport bra with a crop top on top. That seems to be the most comfortable.

I'm a 14E, and am a fan of Berli and Bendon too.

I have heard good things about Bravissimo, but haven't tried them personally.

I am a 14DD and have been wearing an Intimo Active Bra (underwire) to the gym.  Have no trouble running on the treadmill with it and find it extremely supportive.

I've got some pretty good Triumph underwire sports bras but I still wear a crop top over the top, I find I need the underwire to hold em up and the crop to hold em down!  I'd love to give the moving comfort one a try as I'd love to be able to get away without an underwire.

Haha, this is me too (re the crop tops)! Im a runner with a D/DD cup, and I have a Berlei Ultimate Performance Sports Bra, and a Lululemon TaTa Tamer - both of which are super supportive, and very comfortable.

Ive also heard great reviews about the Moving Comfort bras, and they are next on my list to try out.

Berlei all the way for me. They really are a good sports bra.

Although I have to add that I absolutely hate their new advert - so boring and could you get some models with actual boobs to show the product works!?!?  blink.gif

The models have no boobs at all for what they advertising at all.

Glad I'm not the only one who hates that stupid ad. Bounce? Nothing is bouncing but the big balls they are bouncing on!!!

18GG here. I have a Panache sports bra that has possibly the best cross over hook that I've ever come across. Easy to do up, and get undone. The bra is comfortable when not crossed over, and quite firm, but when I hook up the cross over, I can run and nothing bounces. Best bra ever.

Moving Comfort have a great reputation from well endowed running friends of mine. I love the Lululemon Ta Ta Tamer (c/d cup).

I have E cup and run - Enell sports bra is hot but keeps everything strapped in. I have a moving comfort bra which is good for no bounce but I find digs in near my neck leaving a pinched feeling and causing headache. I like the enell a lot.

I was a 14E pre-pregnancy and liked the bras n things brand of sports bra although I initially found that the hooks dug in a little if I had it on the last row. I solved this by using an extension until the band stretched enough for me to use the middle hooks. I would still use a crop top sometimes if I was doing something really "bouncy".

I wear a berlei high performance (10DD) for running and horse riding, it works well but I hate the shape it gives me, 2 cones sticking off my chest.

I have a Moving Comfort Juno. Wearing it right now actually. Although it is very comfortable, if you are going to be doing anything high impact, it doesn't cut it for me. I find my Enell or my Shock Absorber Run bra better for running. I'm also finding at the moment even the Shock Absorber, while fine to run in, needs a crop top over it for a Body Attack class, which seems to involve more jiggling (hoping this means my running style is becoming more efficient!)

For reference I was a  10DD, currently a breasfeeding 12F

cry1.gif cry1.gif  I thought they were a B cup......I'm a B cup...although I seem to be a C cup atm. Not sure how that works when I'm losing weight.

I have Triaction by Triumph....about 7 pairs  blink.gif  I do a lot of functional explosive stuff like Squat jumps, box jumps, burpees, skip rope etc and they work a treat. Also do a bit of running and they work fine for that.

Good sport bras are one thing I don't skip on

14G here. I have an Anita Active wirefree bra which is nothing short of miraculous. Light, comfortable and wicks away moisture. Expensive ($110+) but worth every penny.
