Princess Lisa’s Favourite
As a lady with a bigger than average bust, finding a comfortable sports bra is key to a fun run. I have many bras, but the Armour Bra by Under Armour is my all-time favourite. I have been wearing them for over a year and am thrilled with them.
The best things about these bras are: comfort, support, removable modesty pads in the cups, slightly less of a uni-boob appearance and most importantly, they come in bigger sizes. They also have some massive staying power. Even after a year, my bra was still very supportive and you couldn’t tell that it was that old.
The drawback to these Under Armour Bras are the cost (average about $70 including tax in Canada–and they never seem to go on sale). Even with the cost, I would still recommend the investment as I find the quality that much better.
The only other minor issue I have is that the D and DD sizes are not racerback styled, which means my straps show when I wear a tank.
So that is my review, dear readers! What are your favourite sports bras? Are they best for bigger or smaller busts? Let the Princesses know!
Princess Lindsey’s Favourite
I once had a much larger bustline than I do now (that’s another story for another day!), but my go-to sports bra has always been lululemon’s Ta Ta Tamer. It comes in a ton of colours which change seasonally, and it’s available in sizes up to DD.
As with Princess Lisa’s choice above, the Ta Ta Tamer has separated cups to prevent uniboob and that generally smushy appearance. One of my favourite features is the ability to wear the straps crossed or un-crossed – whichever you find most comfortable, or suits your outfit the best!
The only minor drawback to this bra is that the straps are very wide. This is great for us girls with bigger chests because the straps don’t dig in that way and allow for maximum support…but they certainly don’t hide well under any kind of strappy tank. Thankfully, it comes in so many fun colours that you don’t need to care about hiding them, because you’ll be looking stylish anyway!
