Nothing can ruin a good workout quite like an ill-fitting bra, especially a sports bra — they're supposed to be our fitness allies! Whether it digs in, chafes you, or just isn't supporting your high-impact sport routine, it's uniquely distracting and frustrating — sometimes even painful. Women who wear extended-sized bras are especially affected by this plight, as the options for plus-size activewear and sports bras are seriously under-served. Many retailers only offer options up to a size DD or have limited selections for band sizes, forcing people to squeeze into the wrong size, double-up on bras for extra support, or wear non-sports bras during workouts. All of this is a recipe for discomfort.
If you're living this struggle right now, don't despair. We combed through reviews and recommendations to find the best plus-sized sports bras in the game. They're so thoughtfully designed, that you'll basically forget you're even wearing them while you work out. And, that's the best endorsement a plus-size friendly bra can hope for!
