So my wife constantly complains that every sports bra she buys never lends her support when she is doing any aerobic exercise. She is somewhat on the cheap side when it comes to buying things for herself. I read up on a sports bra that gets rave reviews, it cost some bucks, but I want to get it for her.

So I look through her drawer and see she one of her everyday bras is 38C... So would this be the same for a sports bra or do you buy a bigger or small size cup? Just trying to get a sense of whether sizes for sports bras are the same as regular bras.

I tend to buy sports bras just a little smaller than my usual size. I am a 36D and there is a sports bra that I have ordered from Lane Bryant that works well. I also had one from Under Armour that worked well also. It zipped in the front. The other one hooks in the back like a regular bra but you have to pull it over your head. I will try to link them for you.

Honestly if the bra goes by regular bra sizing I would get a smaller band size not cup size. Like if she is a 38C I would get 36C so that it will be snug and so that as it gets older and loosens up it won't be too loose. Some go by tshirt size.

I have problems with sportsbras too. I also wear a hard to find size. I have been wearing shock absorber brand that I get on Figleaves.com They have different levels of support. I don't change the size from my regular bra. I play tennis, and need the extra support for running. I wore these even when I was nursing!

Drerio,

I am about the same size as your wife & the only one that has worked well for me is the Under Armour front-zipped that HopelesslyJaded suggested...well worth the price IMHO.

joke:

Dr. Calvin Rickson, a scientist from Texas A&M University has invented a bra that keeps women's breasts from bouncing and jiggling and prevents the nipples from pushing through the fabric when cold weather sets in.

After a news conference announcing the invention, a large group of men took Dr. Rickson outside and kicked the $hit out of him.
