    17 Plus-Size Sports Bras That'll Work For More Than Just Your Workout

    Long gone are the days of doubling (or tripling) up on sports bras, my friends.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A stylish fully adjustable sports bra from Shefit nicknamed "The Bounce Tamer" for a reason — you can adjust pretty much everything about this bra (yay, no gaps or slips!) so you'll have total control through your entire workout.


    Promising review: "Best bra ever! I knew it was going to be great but I’m shocked at how great! I have never been interested in running or jogging due to my boobs flying around and last week when I got the bra I went on a jog to test the support and I’m floored! My boobs aren’t going anywhere in this bra! Beyond happy with the purchase. Anyone up to burning our old crappy bras in a garbage bin to celebrate? 😂" —Jennifer W.

    Get it from Shefit for $75 (available in sizes XS–6Luxe and eight colors/patterns).

    2. A highly rated Nike Swoosh medium-support racerback sports bra with wide straps that'll hug you through your workouts while still being lightweight and sweat wicking.


    Promising review: "These are the best bras (overall) for big busts. I am a 40H and these support me completely. The only bra I've found to do so. It's so comfortable. I have four and will be buying more. The only bra I want to wear!" —Liz 23

    Get it from Nike for $20.07+ (available in sizes 1X–3X and 13 colors).

    3. A seamless racerback bra from Target with removable padding to provide you with medium support during your spin and studio classes.


    (And here are some super comfy plus-size leggings to pair with your new bras!)

    Note: Some reviewers suggest ordering a size up.

    Promising review: "This bra is functional and cute. I bought the black and pink and loved both. I am a 44C and the 4X was a perfect fit for me. It keeps everything in place. :)" —Claudia

    Get it from Target for $16 (available in sizes XS–4X and 17 colors).

    4. A sweat-wicking Lululemon high-support running bra boasting padded straps destined to be your BFF during all your cardio activities.


    Promising review: "Great sports bra! I am a 38E and it has been impossible to find a bra that supports and doesn’t leave you bouncing around/having your boobs falling out of the bra. This bra was fully supportive and kept everything in place. I already ordered another one!" —Michele

    Get it from Lululemon for $68 (available in cup sizes B–E, band sizes 32–42, and three colors).

    5. A quick-drying Under Armour cross-back sports bra designed to be worn during medium-support activities, like cycling, weight training, and boxing.

    Under Armour

    Promising review: "Surprisingly comfy considering how supportive it is. It shapes nicely too. Perfect for extra-long work shifts." —Sunshynlaughs

    Get it from Under Armour for $35 (available in sizes 1X–4X and five colors).

    6. A Fruit of the Loom tank-style sports bra to support you in all the right places during low-impact workouts (or just while lounging!).,

    (Btw, here are 24 of the best places to buy plus-size clothes so you can ~stunt on the world~.)

    Promising review: "These bras are perfect for plus-size beauties!! When I tell you these are THE BEST BRAS!! They are so soft and comfortable and fit perfectly on my XXX-large frame. I got a size 50, the biggest size, and my bra size is a 50DD. These fit perfect!!" —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.70+ (available in band sizes 34–50 and 42 colors/combos).

    7. A Knix "Catalyst" front-zip sports bra providing maximum support, plus the ease of just zipping it on and off!


    Note: Knix carries cup sizes A–H and band sizes 32–42, but their sizing is categorized by numbers 1–8++, so be sure to check their size chart to find your perfect fit!

    Promising review: "This is the perfect workout bra. Having arthritis in my hands, I love having the ability to fasten the hooks one at a time and zip up the front. This bra is so comfortable and I never thought I would be able to feel supported without wires, but it's snug and supportive. I don't want to wear any other brand of workout bra now. I am so happy I bought it!" —Baronly

    Get it from Knix for $89 (available in sizes 1–8++ and six colors).

    8. An Athleta medium-impact racerback bra designed to keep D–DD+ cups from budging, even while running, training, and during HIIT workouts. Revolutionary, I know.


    Promising review: "This bra is super supportive without being restrictive and very comfortable. It also holds up well after washing and drying (on low). Being plus size with a big bust, jumping is usually so painful. But with this bra, I can do all the jumps! I'm a bit bigger in the midsection, so I did size up. I recommend this if you carry your weight up top versus in your lower body. Love this bra so much I bought three!" —Lauren G

    Get it from Athleta for $24.97+ (available in sizes XXS–3X and 10 colors).

    9. A Champion vented compression bra if you're looking for *quality* workout wear without needing to spend over $25.


    (Also, here's where you can get gorgeous plus-size lingerie online.)

    Promising review: "This is the only bra brand I wear for activewear. I have been wearing Champion sports bras for over six years. I have a physically demanding job and I like the rowing machine as my go-to workout equipment. That means I put a lot of demand on this product. I'm a size 4X and it never lets me down." —donovanzmom

    Get it from Champion for $19+ (available in sizes XL–4XL and four colors).

    10. A high-impact underwire sports bra from Cacique capable of keeping your boobs in check at all times — even when you're doing full-fledged squat jumps.


    Promising review: "SOOOOO COMFY AND I FEEL SO...HELD UP, LOL. This bra is FANTASTIC, there’s NOTHING like Lane Bryant if you have boobs. I have 38DDD and I’m tellin’ ya, TRY THIS BRA!!! You will LOVE it. I’m happy, my boobs are happy." —PaulaRJelen

    Get it from Cacique for $69.95 (available in cup sizes B–H, band sizes 34–50, and three colors).

    11. A stylish buttery-soft Athleta bra with a cinched front that's so cute you might be tempted to wear it as a regular top when it's warm out.


    Promising review: "This bra does not disappoint! Very comfortable and has good support! I'm a 38 D/DD. You can wear it for light workouts, as a top to go out in, or even as a bathing suit top! So you get your money's worth with this! Must-have!!" —Sky

    Get it from Athleta for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and six colors).

    12. A versatile Fruit of the Loom front-closure cotton sports bra reviewers swear by for working out *and* as a post-op bra, because why not be an overachiever?,

    Promising review: "So darn comfortable! Love this bra. It's stretchy, comfortable, and keeps my boobs in place without constricting breathing. It's also easy to get off. I’m plus-size so comfort and the ability to get it off without being a contortionist were key features. Happy so far!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in band sizes 34–48 and 17 colors/combos).

    13. A medium-support Adidas bra with removable pads, a breathable mesh back, and moisture-absorbing fabric — in other words, you won't dread going for a run!


    (Side note: If you happen to be in the market for one, these 21 nursing bras will make your breastfeeding journey a little easier.)

    Promising review: "Most bras I have purchased in plus size forget that women aren't all made the same way. You can be plus-size without having big boobs. This bra fits beautifully around, is comfortable beyond my expectations, and can easily shift from everyday wear needs to my afternoon stop at the gym. I am plus-size around but my boobs aren't; nobody has figured out how to make a bra that works for all of us like Adidas just did!" —Trautgirl76

    Get it from Adidas for $35 (available in sizes 1X–4X and five colors).

    14. A Wacoal underwire sports bra designed with a breathable mesh back and moisture-wicking microfiber so comfy it'll change your mind about underwire bras.

    Bare Necessities

    Promising review: "This is the best bra I have ever bought. It doesn’t even feel like I have one on." —Donna

    Get it from Bare Necessities for $47.60+ (available in cup sizes C–I, band sizes 32–42, and six colors).

    15. A light-support long-line sports bra from Old Navy you could wear to go out after a low-impact sesh since it basically doubles as a cute top. Post-gym smoothies, anyone?

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "This bra is the most comfortable sports top I've ever worn. It's stylish and slimming. The straps do not cut into my shoulders and I love how they reveal my back for sun while working out. They do not squeeze my breasts together nor does this style show cleavage even though I'm a heavier woman. This bra does not cut into my ribcage and it's easy to put on, unlike other snug-fitting sports bras. I absolutely love this and will be ordering more in various colors for when I work outside in my garden or at my exercise classes." —Michelle H

    Get it from Old Navy for $14.97+ (available in sizes XS–4X and 27 colors/patterns).

    16. A breathable Glamorise full-figure wire-free sports bra available in cup sizes up to J and band sizes up to 50 so you can find your *perfect* fit.,

    (And while we're talking about bras, here are some of the best minimizing ones you can buy.)

    Promising review: "My search for a sports bra is finally over! No longer do I have to stuff myself into three sports bras, crushing my bosom and my soul, to be able to get a good workout. My 36G bust is fully supported in this bra — it's comfortable, easy to put on, and cute! I especially like the panel that prevents too much cleavage, which has always been a problem for me. Now I can go to the gym without feeling self-conscious. I'll definitely be purchasing more." —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $21.71+ (available in cup sizes C–J, band sizes 34–50, and 10 colors).

    17. A Knix "Catalyst" sports bra designed to provide *maximum* support with absolutely zero boob budge.


    Note: Knix carries cup sizes A–H and band sizes 32–42, but their sizing is categorized by numbers 1–8++, so be sure to check their size chart to find your perfect fit!

    Promising review: "I honestly never thought something like this could exist — a sports bra that's comfortable and effective? In MY size?! But here it is! I adore this product so much that I plan to purchase more wire-free bras for everyday use! If you're on the fence, get it!" —Jasmine

    Get it from Knix for $71.20 (available in sizes 1–8+ and 10 colors).
