Best Exercise Bras For Big Breasts

Many busty women are interested in the best exercise bras for big breasts. There are various types, styles, colours and sizes available. I will let you decide but here are the sports bras manufactured by the big bra specialist brands.

Why? Because if size matters, there is nothing more frustrating than finding the style you like does not go up to your size. These little beauties are guaranteed to cater for ladies with bounteous assets.

On a sister page (best sports bras for big boobs) I show various brands sold by different sellers but they may or may not cater for really large boobs. Here I concentrate on the sports orientated gear produced by the specialist big bra manufacturers so hopefully that will cater for most of you.

Big? You need large cup sizes? See the section on Royce below. They go up to a US cup size L/M/N. Or UK size J.

What are the Best Exercise Bras For Big Boobs?

So what are the best exercise bras for big boobs?

Now I will make no attempt to recommend anything in particular because I assume you know what brands you like and trust. This page concentrates on my rollcall of the best exercise bras for big breasts from the large cup bras specialists only (in no particular order):

  • Panache
  • Elomi
  • Goddess
  • Royce
  • Freya (actually there was so much to discuss here I have decided to devote a whole page to them - Freya Sports Bras

Panache Exercise Bras For Big Busts

As you would expect from a specialist brand like Panache, their size range is excellent. Cup sizes range from B - H. Essentially Panache look to encapsulate (not compress) the breasts in a wired or a wire free version to minimise 'bounce'.

These garments include lightweight microfibre fabric that wicks away moisture and their are breathable mesh panels to keep the skin cooler; wide straps, flat seams and smooth moulded inner cups.

The best selling wired version could certainly be considered one of the best exercise bras around. It actually won the top sports bra at the UK Lingerie Awards in 2012 & 2013.

The more popular wired version is officially available in black, white, grey, ultra violet and magenta. However as you will quickly find out, other colours were previously produced and plenty of stockists have other colours still available; I have certainly found Blue, Teal, Pink and a particularly funky multi-coloured, which can be seen in the right hand column.

Note the wide straps and that you can use it in either a racer back or traditional style. All important features for running bras for large busts.

The other positive note is that they provide matching bikini briefs or shorts which will suit certain sports and please the ladies who like to be coordinated at all times. Many manufacturers only produce the actual bra itself so this is a big plus point from me.

Best Exercise Bras - Elomi

I have always thought Elomi are rather unfairly categorised as a bit frumpy. This is perhaps because they have always provided very big sizes and understandably that means the heavy engineering required in the construction will never match the waspy little frillies that the A, B & C cup ladies can find. They also do not cater for busty women with small back sizes.

Elomi do just the one Energise style, which is underwired and has 4 sections to the cups. Please also note how high the central gore goes. Many big bra ladies that have reviewered this particularly like the fact that the high support means that there is no spillage at the top.

This is in fact the new design. The previous one was a bit more clunky and had a lot more visible seams. The Elomi people clearly took on board the feedback and have improved the look.

Elomi sports wear is unsurprisingly sturdy and caters for big sizes. It runs right up to a J cup, so these may be the best exercise bras for big breasts and I mean ladies with serious boobage. In fact they do not even cater for smaller band or cup sizes!

The official size range (in UK sizes) is 34GG - 34J; 36DD - 36J, 38D - 38J, 40D - 42HH, 42D - 42H, 44D - 44GG and 46D - 46DD.

As can be seen the 4 colours currently available are: nude, pomegranate, black and white. They include what they call a J Hook which allows you to convert the straps from a standard style to a racer back.

If you fancy this, there is a good review by a 36H lingerie enthusiast at fullerfigurefullerbust.

Goddess Sports Bras

Goddess Lingerie is owned by Wacoal (formerly Eveden) that also owns Fantasie, Freya, Elomi, Leia and Btempted, so you know your boobs will be in good hands (so to speak). The sizes are usually quoted as US sizes. In fact the size range runs from a 34-48C up to a 34-38I (US).

It is a soft cup with no underwiring and is classified as a compression style and it's sports rating is normally described as medium impact. It has a high centre which gives substantial coverage, 3 panels, 4 rows of hooks and fabric that helps wick away moisture (or sweat if you are a realist). As you can see the colours are restricted to white and black. 

Royce Sports Bras

Royce may be a surprise for some of you in my list of best exercise bras for big breasts but they do deserve a mention. They are a relatively small firm that originally specialised in wire free maternity bras.

Understanding and designing for bigger pregnancy breasts has given them a very solid grounding and they are certainly worth a look. The range starts at a 28 back size, which is always a relief to the many slim but busty ladies and rises to a very respectable size 40.

They also go big!. Cup sizes also start at a D cup but go up to US sizes L,M,N (Uk cup size J), so you know you are looking at a large cup bras specialist.

The specific size range is 28D-28J, 30D-36D - 30K-36K, 38D-38JJ and 40D - 40J (UK). They only do the one style in black, white or grey with pink trim. As you can see it has a wide underband, wide straps and a high neckline to spread the load - so to speak.

Royce exercise bras for large busts

Two interesting points of note. It has a very high cotton content at 81% which will appeal to those who like or need a more natural feel. It also has a covered back fastener, so you are not showing the world all those lines of hooks we big busted ladies often have as standard.

Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan

Nowadays you have a great choice for the best exercise bras

44% of Women Do Not Wear A Sports Bra

According to Panache, at least. The problem with statistics is what they do not say.

For example if they are including ladies over 65, I guess that would certainly mean a lot who no longer exercise and drag down the number. However what are the figures for 'active' women aged 18-55 I wonder?

Personally I reckon that almost all ladies who actively participate in sports these days understand and wear the best exercise bras they can afford.
