What sports bras are available for plus-sized women?

Sports Bra Styles Accommodate Plus Sizes

Larger-breasted women used to have to wear two sports bras, one on top of the other, to get enough support, but sports apparel manufacturers now offer bra styles for sizes up to triple D.

Sports bra features of particular interest to plus-sized women include:

-Where the seams are. If chafing is a problem, look for sports bras with seams on the outside, away from the skin.

-Adjustable straps. Many styles for larger breast sizes have adjustable straps so you can customize the fit. Some straps are padded or gel-filled for extra support.

-Back vs. front closure. Front-closure bras can be easier to put on and take off, but be aware that there is a possibility for chafing during high impact activities.
