Good riding bras!

Hey guys.

As a 42DD I find myself always searching for the perfect riding bra.

Today, after riding my oh so bumpy thoroughbred, I realized how badly my others work.
Needless to say I was sore for hours

I know i'm not the only one in this position. I've had riding instructors in the past frown upon the fact that i'm riding with such large breasts.
Sorry, but my love of horses came before my breast development. And I refuse to give it up because others find it odd.

Anyways... (sorry for the little rant)
Help guys? What do you do

I'm a 40 D, so I get your pain!
I wear a normal bra, a good fitting comfy one, and then a material sports bra that's 1 or 2 sizes too small. That helps a lot!

I can't get away with a normal bra. Sports bras only. I currently have been using a 36D to try and "squish" them in. Unfortunately, it hasn't been working.

I've dealt with this problem for years. But now with my own horse, I am riding a lot more often and really feeling the pain.
And i'm sure pain isn't a good thing

Look at the website for "title nine" . They only have a few that go to 42. I use the one by "moving comfort" and squish into a 40 D. Pretty darn supportive

I understand the bra issues. My bra size is 44DDD. I've got one Enell bra that I use off and on if I really want to minimize the bounce. It's expensive and I only have one, so I don't use it all of the time. My usual sports bras are all Lane Bryant ones. But if you want a really effective bra- Enells are very good.

I am a 36DDD or DD depending on the brand and how forgiving they are on the cup size. I really love Bali's you shaped backed bra's that are minimizers. My boobies don't budge at all when I am running or active and they make me look smaller! I could never wear sports bras.. they offer no support at all for me. Even if I get an 'XL' my boobs still don't fit and pop out everywhere lol!

I am a 40E so I *literally* feel your pain.

I have a Moving Comfort Fiona that I bought from Zappos.com so I could return it if I hated it, but it works quite well at keeping my girls in check, and its comfy as heck too. It was pricey, but well worth it to me.

I'm a DD.

I never felt comfortable with riding in just a sports bra. Couldn't find the right combination of inward squishing and upward lifting so... I wear two bras and it's perfect. I wear a full coverage bra with underwire which keeps me supported from down under, and then a sports bra on top which squishes me in.
