Ever wondered why people refer to breasts as knockers? Because for those lucky enough to have big boobs, there’s a serious risk of knocking yourself out while running braless.
Finding the right sports bra for a bigger chest can feel arduous; there are lots of workout options out there, but all too often they don’t provide the support those above a C-cup might need.
A sports bra must hold us in without digging into our skin; it must be shock absorbent because these babies bounce even during low impact exercise; and we don’t want a bra that looks as though we fished it out of grandma’s laundry basket.
For years I spent most of my gym classes in the corner readjusting my bra. A bad bra is disruptive and impractical, awkward and a waste of money.
I started to think that a good sports bra for the well-endowed was just too much to ask for. But, I persevered, busting out the big guns to do some serious research on behalf of bosomy women everywhere.
This is our pick of the sports bras to keep larger breasts under control. They are simply the breast, better than all the rest.
You don’t get any fiercer than leopard print, but this bra is much more supportive than scary. Made from recycled polyester, the ASOS Curve bra isn’t suitable for a run, but it’s brilliant for all sorts of low impact activity.
