ooh, thanks MSFC, i have been trying to remember the name of those (the enell ones)

i remember reading an interview with Christina Hendricks where she said these work for her (she mentioned other brands, so i don't think it was some paid promotion thing) and i really liked the look of these, but could never remember the name.

I bought a shock absorber a while back which i hate.  nightmare to do up the double set of hooks, and it feels so compressing that it is going to collapse my ribs.

Very interesting read MSFC, thanks  :-*

Seems so nismat, so now I know the type I have to find the size makers  ??? :)

I have just bought a Minimiser bra, soft cup, and a sports bra in the size down from what I require, I'm hoping 'Yangs' theory works, which is...if I can comfortably squish Bill n Ben into a Minimiser and make them as small as possible it may reduce enough inches to fit into a similar shape/cup sports bra thus flattening the buggers within an inch of their existence. Result? Maximum whiplash prevention/ neck support and I won't be restricting my airways like binders do.So encapsulation achieved!!  ;D

Worth a shot  :-\

I'm technically a 28 F, but because no fecker does 28s I usually wind up with 30Es (and red marks/buckling) or 30Fs (already on the tightest hooks).

Buying bras sucks.

Hi flump
Not sure where you are looking but I have just done a search and over 100 28F bras came up in various styles and bravissimo have at least 3 sports bras, marks & Spencers too.. Have you a prefered fitter/ bra shop because I must admit I see a lot of small backs like 28 in cup from DD-G. Maybe a wider search on Google? ....Or maybe you like certain styles?

KJ
Went on M&S. No option to search for 28 as a back. I don't think I've ever found a 28 in an M&S shop. If I go to bravissimo shop in west end there's not usually that many 28s and I have to order them in. I think part of the problem is that up until recently I could only buy bras bang on payday or I couldn't afford them and quite often stores only stock a small number of certain sizes. One of my friends used to have the same issue with 36HH.
Trying the highest reviewed one off of the bouncy website Meryl streep suggested. Will report back post-walking/running the dog wearing it.

The Freya softcup sportsbra I bought off of the bouncy website is fab, I can run without my entire chest aching afterwards. Now all I have to do is gain the ability to run for more than the length of a tiny street.

Just be aware of the following 'For future reference, on our site, if the red button says "order now" and underneath 'Est delivery 7 days' we are awaiting stock.  And if the button says "buy now" this means it is available for immediate dispatch.' I ended up asking for a different colour in order to get my bra before 22 of May. Would have just ordered another colour to begin with if I'd known that.

Try lulu lemon they have a great supportive non-wired bra it's around 50 but totally worth it and they can order large cup sizes.

Unfortunately I don't think it really is large cup sizes ^
Only up to an E cup, which is scarcely even medium in my eyes!  ;)  :-X

I wear a ff/g and only wear underwired, but decided to try Bravissimo's wire-free one and it's AMAZING. Like no bounce-age, even when horse riding and running and pilates! :-)
Have this in a 30G (normally get 26 or 28, but they don't offer it and this is perfect anyway): http://www.bravissimo.com/products/lingerie/sports-bras/dplus-max-sports-bra/white/be59wh/?level=1

Happy hunting xx

Is it a Freya bra called Wohooo? Or is that just your exhilaration - as I can't track that name down!?

Checking in to say a big thank you to KJ for starting this thread and for all that info. I now have sports bras that fit and can now do sport without having to keep looking at how embarrassingly my breasts are behaving.

Attempts to find one that fitted in sports shops and bra shops were a waste of time, but thanks to this thread I knew it was worth persisting online. The first one I bought seemed to only fit my smaller breast, but after 3 weeks of correspondence with the seller we concluded that it fitted after all (possibly helped by losing weight at the same time).

The Freya Active core (recommended by an online sports bra specialist) freaked me out at first as it encapsulates to the extent of looking a bit like a 50s/Madonna cone jobbie, but I've got so used to it I am considering using it for everyday wear. It's amazing to feel so supported, like being hugged all day long. And it seems to hold my breasts in a similar position to when I'm standing in a swimming pool. Weird but nice.

After that I ordered some other types because they were on discount. They do the squishing thing which is fine for sport but too 'monoboob' for me to consider wearing it to work prior to the sports class afterwards. Which means I will probably only use those for yoga after all. Then I have more time (and privacy) to get changed before class. I don't mind being seen in my bra, but getting myself into a sports bra takes some doing and rearranging and I am not keen to do that in front of people, especially my work colleagues... Plus it takes a few minutes and that's why I want to wear the bra all day beforehand if possible. I take a normal one for changing into after class.
