Today, we asked our readers:
What the best sports bra for bigger chests?

Here’s what they had to say…

…on Facebook:

Laura Marie Dudley: Shock Absorber Run Sports Bra.

Lynette Jacobson: I prefer Moving Comfort Fiona. I live alone so I also need an “easily removable” bra. I sweat so much that typical sports bras are impossible to remove without scissors.

BJ Meyer Puentes: Moving Comfort Juno!!!!!!!!! Works great in Kickboxing and Running. Even long distance, I don’t get band chaffing.

Shannon Walsh: Panache is good. I also like Sturdy Girl Sports I never though a crop top style sports bra would hold the girls in place, but my sturdy girl one does.

Lena Bento: Intimacy’s sports bra. I’m an h cup. It’s the best I’ve ever had.

Ingrid Pickering Jamault: Victoria’s Secret Knockout is awesome!

…on Twitter:

@Radmadical: The Armour Bra by @UnderArmour, for sure!

@GailLuttrell: I’ve seen two other votes for the Shock Absorber brand, and I just want to add a third! It’s the only one for me.

@MsMKM1986Lululemon Tata Tamer!

@ProfessorsMumShock Absorber Run Bra #ReaderRecs

@Lonnellinen: Nike Pro Classic with maximum support.

@goodspeedmiller: #readerrecs – Never a bra that you pull on an off. Gross to drag a sweaty bra across your face when done with a run.

The resounding winner? The Shock Absorber Run Sports Bra!
