What About Sports Bras for Large Breasts?

Women with large breasts need support that's specifically designed for their bodies. Traditional sports bras work by compression, flattening the breasts as one unit as close to the chest wall as possible. This can work fine for smaller breasts or low impact activities, but the higher impact your exercise is and the larger your chest is, the more support you will need.

New sports bra technology has brought about encapsulation support. Encapsulation (molded) separates the breasts and supports each one individually within its own cup; encapsulation and compression are often used together for extra support.

Sports bras designed for larger breasts usually also have other distinct features, like comfortable underwire support, moulded cups, wide padded straps, hook and eye closures, and wide underbands. Check out some of our favorite sports bras for large breasts.
