Best Sports Bra for Large Busts (Sorry Lululemon)

I have quite a few Lululemon sports bras - the Deep V, the Lift and Separate, the Swift and Cool Swift, the Flow Y III - but when I really want the girls strapped in for high impact activities and pushed back up to where they were when I was 18, the bra I turn to is the Donna Karan Underwire Sport Bra 35137.

This is no wispy bra-in-name-only like a lot of sports bras. It is well made with side support panels in each cup, additional external underwire support, 1" straps that adjust using hooks and a back that has a 3 hook closure. When you feel it in person you can tell it is a serious piece of sports equipment. The underwire gives great support and, unlike most underwire bras, the wires are on the outside of the cups so they don't dig into you. The bra is designed to encapsulate each breast so there is no uniboob look. There are hooks on the back of the straps to adjust for length. It all adds up to great support, comfort, and a fabulous exterior.

  • Provides separation of the breasts as well as a higher level of support and comfort.
  • Heat-molded cups have inner support paneling and covered underwire construction.
  • Transfers moisture to keep you cool and comfortable.
  • Side support panels keep breast tissue from chaffing under arms.
  • Unique 6-position hook shoulder strap adjustment
