Let’s talk about support. It takes a lot of support to secure a bust, large or small, when you are going down a bumpy path on a bike. Buying a sports bra can be tough – and expensive. Below are the best options for busts big and small to help get you superior support without a bank-breaking price tag.
Nike Victory Sports Bra
The Nike Victory Contour Sports Bra features a two-layer compression fit for lift and support in a lightweight, streamlined design. Ultra comfy, the Dri-FIT sweat-wicking fabric and strategically placed mesh panels help keep you ventilated during medium-impact spins. The bottom seam under bust helps shape and support for a flattering look, while the soft elastic binding around the neckline and arm holes, along with flat, bonded seams at the shoulders, help reduce irritation due to chafing. For enhanced range of motion during upper-body workouts, this bra has a racer-back plus a low-profile, elastic chest band for lightweight comfort. This bra average $35 USD.
Oakley Strength X-Back Bra
This medium-impact racer-back sports bra provides stellar support and comfort while the mesh lining and removable cups offer comfort, separation, and lift. Durable with antibacterial fabric, the bra also comes with a bonded hook-and-eye closure also helps prevent stretch-out. This bra averages around $60 USD.
Juno Sports Bra
The Juno sports bra offers great shape and full support. It is really breathable and can be adjusted for a perfect fit thanks to front adjustable straps and a concealed hook and eye closure. For sizes 30C-40DD, the $60 USD price tag is a fairly good deal for a top of the line sports bra.
The Shock Absorber Bra
The Shock Absorber bra is suitable for busty women who require extra support. The straps and V-neck cup style are secure enough to keep the breasts lifted and separated. Forget fiddling with clasps or folds, instead look stylish in the seamless racer-back design that features a full-length front zipper for easy removability.
New Balance Fabulous Framer II
Breathable and light weight, the New Balance Fabulous Framer II features a double layer powermesh side front lining structure, molded C/D cups and an under bust cradle for extra support and shaping. The internal lining supports each breast individually while the outside shell offers compression. The bra also comes with adjustable mid-back clasp for custom fit and easy on-off. For around $40 USD, this bra is practically foolproof, since it is sized S-XL.
Panache Active Molded Sports Bra
Ideal for women with larger breasts, the Panache Active Molded Sports Bra reduces breast bounce by 83% and comes with lightly pad contour underwired cups. The moisture-wicking microfiber fabric with breathable mesh inserts keeps you cool and dry. Panache Active provides compression and encapsulates each breast separately for maximum bounce control and comfort. The straps are cushioned and attach to form a more supportive Y-back via an attached J-hook. At around $75 USD this one is expensive – but well worth the investment if you are busty.
