Ok girls I have started biking a lot lately. My problem? I have a medium- to large chest and need to strap the girls down. I have been wearing a regular bra with a sports bra on top of that. Its uncomfortable. So what do you use to strap 'em down?

Duct tape? Totally kidding!!

I don't have that problem, so a sports bra works for me.
Have you looked into getting a different kind of sports bra? They have some really good ones out there.

Good luck!

I heard something on the radio about a 'space bra' - apparently it's the kind that astronauts wear or something....... that should hold them in place!

Oh ooouch! When I was a student I couldn't afford the proper tape to hold on low cut tops, so I used to use my housemates double sided tape, it was seeeeriously strong, that hurt! Sometimes I used to just have to leave it on and hop in the shower

I know quite a few who do a double sports bra which helps a lot.

I have that problem in handfuls.

Ace bandages work for me.

If you have a good, well-fitting, quality bra, you don't need a sports bra. Smashing them like that actually damages the elasticity of the tissue and makes them saggier and also less able to support themselves.
Try one of the "formed cup" variety, the ones that look like they have a breast in them even when they don't. They're like little cradles.

Victoria's Secrets sports bra was on sale for $16 and they are very comfortable.

The thing is....when breasts "vibrate" on a bicycle, a lot of times it has more to do with the bike seat than with the bra. If you get the cushionest, biggest, most supportive seat you can find it would make a HUGE difference.

Natori used to make really good sport bras in sizes up to ddd

Do they knock you out over each bump? No? well then you're good.

I've heard the Space bra is good too. There is also one by Reebox that is suppose to be the best at holding the girls in. I think its $36-40 though.

i have to go with the underwired full cup or a triumph bra not that attractive but looks so much better than a sports bra. a sports bra on me is like having one huge hump on my chest lol

I know what you mean!! I don't like the sports bras that give you the uniboob look.
This is a great website that you might use: www.x-chrom.com they have a big selection. I think the Vic's Secret bras might not come in a big enough size!!

You are correct about Vic's Secret bras. They only go to DD. (or maybe D, but not DDD for sure)

Wow! almost $50!! I have to save up for that! but if you swear by them and they work for horses then you are right they would def. work for my little bike! I have been buying mine a size smaller than what I wear so they are really tight!
post #21 of 24
Whoa, whoa, whoa ... $50 is expensive for a bra?!? I'm used to paying anywhere between $30 and $60 for an average quality bra, and a couple of weekends ago, I bought 3 bras for more than $300! I'm ... ummm ... very well-endowed, however. Like, an H-cup or more (depending on the bra ... it seems every manufacturer has a different size). Cheaper bras just smush my girls together and leave me with an aching back; if I want to be able to walk at the end of the day, I have to fork out more money. I have yet to find a sports bra that didn't make me feel like Droopy McSagginhonkers.

ETA: The bras were more than $300 total ... Not $300 each! I'm crazy, but not that crazy!

On a similar note, for those of you with hand-wash only bras, how do you get them to regain their shape? After I wear one for a little while, it stretches out, but hand-washing it doesn't seem to get it back into its original shape. Am I doing something wrong? How can I be screwing up hand-washing, for crying out loud? I use a special detergent for hand-wash-only lingerie, wash them in the appropriate temperature water, and hang them to dry. What more can I do? They cost too much to risk tossing them in the washer or dryer.

maybe lay them flat to dry? And they say not to store them with one cup inside the other.

Underarmor makes a pretty good sports bra. I'm only a DD, though. And $50 is nothing for a quality bra. You get what you pay for usually.

I think it's called Title IX, I've heard they have a huge selection of sports bras

Wow you all make me feel better about my cup size. I am a full C and they kill me sometimes. I feel like my problem isn't as bad as yours!

this is going to sound stupid but if you blow up two ballons to your cup size and dry them on that it might work i have a set of basin bowls that i use i just put them out of site
