Top sports bras, chosen by you

You have tried and tested them and these are your most loved sports bras in terms of fit and performance, chosen and reviewed by you…

Panache moulded sports bra

This sports bra firmly holds breasts to reduce movement in all directions and minimise breast bounce by up to 83 per cent. It has padded, adjustable straps, moulded cups, a padded hook and eye, and soft underwiring. High impact.

I have been buying this brand since age 18, and I would say it’s one of the best brands I have bought. I am very big in the chest (34G) and my boobs don’t move whatsoever


I read comments that said it runs true to size and was impressed to find that this was accurate, meaning ordering the right size is easy. It feels really secure whilst still being comfortable and the added bonus of the choice to wear with or without the racer back is really useful. It’s a lovely sporty style and keeps everything in all the right places. I’m really happy with it and would order from Panache again.


Freya Sonic underwired sports bra

Designed for high-impact support and made from Coolmax fabric to wick away sweat, this underwired sports bra has mesh panels between the cups to keep you cool and wide adjustable padded straps for comfort.

Got this a week ago and have worn it twice, once when running and then for Clubbercise. Both times it was comfortable, felt secure and definitely no bounce. I tried it with the racing back and without, which is a totally different feel and even more secure. Really pleased with this bra, and going to buy another as soon as budget allows.

Purple Granny

I bought this a few weeks ago in a motivational move to get me back to the gym and boy, was I impressed. Being a larger lady, finding a good supportive bra for all the HIIT classes I do is a struggle, but my previous one was starting to lose its elasticity and wasn’t the most flattering shape. This fits so comfortably, doesn’t create the horrific ‘uni-boob’ look that some sports bras do and is so supportive without feeling like it’s compressing too much. Would highly recommend and will definitely be looking to get another.


Anita Active Extreme Control sports bra

This bra creates an attractive bust shape while providing maximum high impact support. The pique fabric and mesh back allow for breathability, while the firm-stretch material and seamless towelling inner cup give support and comfort. The underbust band also aids support yet moulds to your body’s shape and the straps are ergonomically designed, padded and fully adjustable.

I am 34F and this is an excellent fit. It supports well when exercising in the gym. The wide padded straps are very comfortable. It fits in all the right places and one of the best sports bras I have bought recently

MS View

This is the best sports bra I have ever worn. It’s not only comfortable but it’s very supportive. I have struggled for years to find a good sports bra suitable for larger cup sizes. This is great for running, tennis and all aerobic activities.


Elomi Energise underwired sports bra

This underwired sports bra for high impact activities gives enviable shape, lift and separation. The mircofibre wicks away moisture and the back can be adjusted to a racer back style for further support and comfort. Infused with nylon, it gives a satin finish for a touch of luxury in your sports kit.

I bought this bra after trying over 10 other brands. Having G cup size breasts, nothing supported well enough for me to run. It was amazing to find that this one did. So comfortable that I’ve even started wearing it just day-to-day. Thank you Elomi for creating a bra I want to never take off! I will be buying more.


Yesterday I went to gym wearing this bra for the first time and I actually ran. I haven’t run without holding my boobs down for 10 years. I haven’t run without it causing my boobs to hurt for 15 years. It also makes my boobs look smaller. My size (40H) had a wide back strap with four lots of hook-and-eye fasteners. It’s a bit tricky to do the first couple of times, but means less back bulging than with 2 fasteners, and tonnes of really secure feeling support.
