This Woman Worked Out In A Sports Bra For One Week | Cosmopolitan
This Is the Only Sports Bra That Supports My 42DDs
A sports bra can make or break a workout, especially if you have a larger bust. I should know—my 42DD chest is so big that if I'm not wearing the right bra during jumping jacks, I have to cross my arms over my chest to prevent my boobs from bouncing up and smacking me in the face.
Small, medium, and large sizing just doesn’t cut it for my girls. And the brands that offer band-and-cup sizing often don’t carry anything larger than a 40DD. That means I've spent most of my life working out in two or three pullover sports bras.
That changed, though, after I met the sports bra of my dreams: Lane Bryant’s LIVI Active , recommended by a friend who's a 44DDD. At , it's twice as much as any other sports bra I've bought, but I was beyond desperate and didn’t know how much longer I stand wearing three bras at once.
As soon as I started working out in my new Lane Bryant bra, I realized just how bad my three-bra situation had been. Instead of worrying abouteverything—uniboob, spillover, bounce, pain, you name it—I didn't think about my boobs at all, and was actually able to focus on my workout. A three hook-and-eye closure in the back keeps everything in place, while a wide band never digs or creates an uncomfortable back bulge. An underwire provides extra support and keeps my chest lifted, not saggy.

Here’s the real kicker, though: Not only is this an excellent bra for exercising, but this bra is comfortable enough to wear all day—and I often do, without needing to adjust the cups, band, or straps. I found myself wearing it so much that I decided to pick up another one to wear on the days I’m not working out.
If you don't love the idea of dropping 50 bucks on something you're just going to sweat in, know this: I've had my Lane Bryant sports bras for about two years, and they look good as new.
