Comments about Royce Wire-Free Sport Bra S925 "I've been looking for the right sports bra for me for years. and even back in high school, i was rather busty for my age so finding one that worked for me wasnt easy. just recently i have gone up a cup size from 36J to a 36K which didnt help my search at all. but my mother asked me my new size and decide to join in on the search. so early this week, she surprised with this sports bra. so after getting to use this bra a few times, i have to say that its absolutely perfect! its very comfortable, looks good, and unlike all my other bras in the past, has been able to support the full weight of my breasts which is not an easy task even for me. and its great with reducing bounce. granted because of my size, i cant go full on running, but i can say this bra is great for a light jog or brisk walk."

Racerback Sports Bras and Zip Front Sports Bras Racerback sports bras are designed to give your shoulder blades more ease of movement during exercises such as lifting or activites where your arms are moving out and upwards a lot. Zip front sports bras are a feature of some racerback bras. Simply put, a zipper is used instead of clasps for ease of use in putting the bra on or taking it off, but there may be no noticeable differences in support. Coolmax, Compression, Encapsulation and Other Sports Bra Words to Know There are a lot of terms that are more associated with sports bras than other types of bras. Coolmax for example is a moisture wicking fabric that helps keep you cool and dry during activity. Compression and encapsulation refer to the type of cups in the bra. Many sports bras work by compression (remember they're trying to reduce bounce) but some people balk at these because compression bras are typically associated with the dreaded uni-boob. If you would like to learn more about sports bras and their terms, please refer to our special sports bra guide. Riding, Yoga and Running Sports Bras for Large Breasts Goddess Sport Bra 5056 Shock Absorber Level 4 D Plus Max Sports Bra Top B4490 Freya Active Underwire Sports Bra AA4392 Anita Rosa Faia Sport BH Sports Bra 5527 Sports like running, horseback riding and even yoga are all activities where less bounce is better. Have you ever noticed the woman jogging in place while waiting for the light to change and she is just bouncing all over the place? Well, that's not good.The ideal sports bra for running is going to reduce the amount of bounce.Reducing bounce is important because excessive bouncing damages the ligaments in your chest wall and leads to premature sagging. (A high impact sports bra - reduces bounce - will help lessen or prevent damage to your ligaments.) The best sports bras are often rated with an impact level, low (for yoga), medium (for hiking) and high impact sports bras (for activities like running or horseback riding). Sports Bras - Love Running, Hate Bouncing Sports bras are a must-have for any woman who wants to be comfortable and supported while working out, playing sports, enjoying an active lifestyle or even just running errands and doing every-day tasks. The right sports bra will give you the support you need; especially when you match the sports bra to the activity you're doing. Many women prefer sports bras to regular bras for running errands and hanging out around the house because they're so comfortable. But why is this? How do sports bras work, and what do you need to know when you're shopping for one? Here at Big Girls Bras, we've got the know-how to give you the real scoop on sports bras so you can make the most of whatever sports bra you wear. What Sports Bra do I Need?The two most important factors in getting the right sports bra are size and exercise impact level. Making sure you have the right size is important because a sports bra that's too loose will be ineffective and one that's too tight will be too painful to wear. It's best to get a fresh fitting every time you buy a new sports bra to ensure it will be a perfect fit. Once you've got your size down, think about what activities you'll need your sports bra for. Generally speaking, exercise and physical activity can be grouped into impact levels based on how much they will make you bounce. What are Impact Levels?When you're shopping for a sports bra, you'll see bras designed for low-impact activities like yoga in the same category as bras for high-impact activities like running or other cardio. While these may all be sports bras, they don't all work for all activities. If you're shopping for a sports bra for a specific activity, look for a sports bra designed for that activity. The sports bra for running is going to have a much more rigorous support system than one designed for yoga. Not all sports bras are made alike, and matching the right sport bra with the right activity matters. Figure out what you want to do with your sport bra before you go shopping, and find the right bra for your exercise requirements. Generally speaking, exercise and physical activity can be grouped into impact levels based on how much they will make you bounce. Low impact is great for leisurely walking, weight training, biking, gardening, or yoga. Medium impact would include power walking, hiking, skiing, golfing, skating, or elliptical training. High impact includes running, aerobics, boxing, kickboxing, mountain biking, horseback riding, playing tennis, racquetball, volleyball, or soccer or other intense workouts. Why Wear a Sports Bra?The invention of the Sports Bra was truly an amazing, liberating, empowering moment for women. Before sports bras came along, active women had to endure painful bouncing and the unwanted attention and premature sagging that came along with it. Since that fateful time, sports bras have evolved from the original jog bra - literally two jock straps sewn together - to an entire industry dedicated to incorporating the most supportive, comfortable, fabrics into some incredibly engineered and highly tested designs. Sports bras are now designed for the different support levels women need according to activity and the industry is also now beginning to understand the different needs of varied sizes. Here at Big Girls Bras, we've hand-selected the best of the best and break it down for you so you can find your perfect sports bra and get back to action. What Types of Sports Bras Are There?Regular bras are great for normal, every-day activities. If you want a bra to give you a flattering shape under your work clothes, or to look great under a t-shirt, the key is to finding the right bra for the outfit and your bust type. But for sports bras, there's less emphasis on shaping, and more emphasis on support. Many sports bras actually compress the bust in order to help hold it in place while you're active. This gives you the "uni-boob" look, but the breasts are less likely to bounce around when they're tightly compressed. This is why many sports bras have this type of shaping for more active styles. (Compression style sports bras) Less active styles, popular in low-impact activities such as yoga, walking, or just for every-day wear, typically provide a bit more shaping, or simply provide the comfort of soft cloth without a lot of seams, panels or uncomfortable straps. (Encapsulation style sports bras) Many women perceive this as more comfortable than regular bras, and prefer to wear them on the weekends or after work, when they don't need the shaping of a more structured bra under work clothes. (This is a false perception, by the way, ladies - if your bra is properly fitted and is a design that's good for your preferences, it can be just as comfortable as a sports bra!) When do I Replace a Sports Bra?If you've been exercising in a regular bra, it's a great time to see what a difference an athletic bra can make. Most quality sports bras are made with light weight moisture-wicking fabric that keeps you cool and dry while you're working out. Sports bras keep breasts from bouncing significantly more than a standard bra can. And sports bras are designed to prevent chafing. If you're already wearing a sports bra but notice that the fabric is pilling, the fit seems looser, or that your breasts seem to have more movement during exercise, it's time for a new sports bra. A basic rule of thumb is that no well-used sports bra should celebrate a birthday! Find the best sports bra for you here. 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.
