Can anyone recommend a good supportive bra to wear while exercising. Im not too fussed if it's a breast feeding bra but it would be a bonus. I just need something super supportive so they don't flop all over the place. I don't have massive boobs either & don't have an issue with leakage. I just don't want to spend a fortune buying heaps of different bras just to find the right one.

I have always used berlei. Normally a DD/E, currently a G... I do high impact too (run, netball).

I forget the exact name, but choose one for high impact, and make sure you are fitted properly.  original.gif

I've been playing netball since DD was 9 weeks. Not sure how far along you are, but for me in the beginning, I would wear my normal maternity bra, with my sports bra on top. I read that this is good because your breasts are still very sensitive and tender in the early days and the sports bras can be quite firm and rough and often have seams across the nipples. the smooth soft materity bras protect your breasts while the sports bra supports. Worked a treat for me.

DD is now 8 months and I'm fine to wear just a sports bra.(boobs have shrunk a lot too!)

I use the cross back sports bra from intimo. I just bought a new one actually, and it took 48 hours from order to delivery in my letterbox. Awesome!

Hi there,

I found (to my great surprise) that Nike do a good supportive crop bra. I can't find it on their website - their website is pretty lame actually and doesn't show half their stock?? But I found it in a sports store. I'll try and find the model number for you! It's got adjustable velcro straps, so you can make it quite firm for a non-wire bra.

I use a Shock Absorber bra (the run one), has no underwire and very supportive.

Some of Moving Comfort's bras have ajdustable straps that do up with velcro at the front. A little tricky, but you can breastfeed in them...I have a Juno. It wasn't as supportive as I would have liked for me, but for a less well-endowed person it may be fine.
