Plus Size Sports/Riding Bra

One thing I find annoying as a plus size rider is the plus sized "bad boys" I have to put up with.

What is your favourite sports bra for holding your boobage at bay? It hurts when they bounce too much!

Do you have a favourite store or online site you get yours from?

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

I use Nike or Champion brand sports bras. I can get away with one, but I often wear two, just for extra "squishing" them closer to my body.

I am not a plus size rider, however i am more then qualified to comment on this thread (I have natural boobs that are bigger than Jordans fake ones ever were).

I use a shockabsorber level 4 in a size too small for me (back size and cup size too small).

Shock Absorber Sports Bra: D+ Max Sports Bra N109

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I just bought two more Enell bras to go with my first one. They aren't much to look at, but they do the job!

LOL Joe4d!

I wear a Berlei sports bra and stack on the crop tops and it works fine for me. I'm not sure how large they go up to though.

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

So far, since getting my new horse, I've not had her out of a slow trot, so haven't needed a sports bra... though I did have some years ago when I played softball..... I'd black my eyes and trip every time I tried to run! Not a pretty picturs... Better be glad there were NO pics of it Joe4d!!!
So, thanks for reminding me that I need to get some before I work up to the next step! lol

Is it bad that Aires' trot is so smooth I don't need anything more than my regular bra (and I'm right on the verge of being a double D fact, in some bras, I am a DD)?

Although I am glad this was posted because I will be needing some "support" in this area later on. lol
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.
