I'm not plus sized, only a little chubby, but I still need to keep the girls in check. I've been wondering if the sports bras sold on tack sites like dover, smartpak, etc are any different than the ones I bought from my local sporting-goods store. I have an Adidas one and a Champion one.
I want to know because I don't want saggy boobs when I'm older and have sat 3847198247981 hours of trot (exaggeration obviously!)

Ennel bra's get my vote, stops any inclination for the girls to get in their own rhythm

Although I am glad this was posted because I will be needing some "support" in this area later on. lol
I'd kill to be a DD cup. I'm currently sitting on the verge of a GG cup (and t is natural)

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I love the Champion sports bras; not the ones in the store, I order from the catalog where they have this bad boy:

Product Information: Champion Double Dry+™ Sport Comfort™ Full-Support Sports Bra - ChampionUSA,

In a regular bra, I completely resemble GH's smilie.

Being a 50+ woman, I now wear a 42 long, rather than measuring in cup size, the reason that I like the Ennel is, not only does it strap the snow birds (as in heading south for the winter) down to minimize bounce, but also it stops all that unsightly sort of side spill going on, I tried other sports bras but while they did force the snow birds to squish, they just kind of head back towards my armpits and tried to escape there.

That's why Ennel gets my vote, do other makes manage that issue well?

Subscribing! I can never find the right riding bra. Just the other day I mentioned that SmartPak had riding clothes, etc. They should make a bra.

Yes, and the Enell also prevents the lovely "four-pack" look from spillage out the top. It's mildly annoying because most of my shirts are V-neck (or lower than crew neck in whatever shape)--not crazy low-cut or anything, but lower than the Enell comes to (I don't like the feeling of a shirt right up around my neck). So I'm limited in the number of shirts I can wear with them, but that's okay. They do the job! Now if only it was easier to control the jiggles everywhere else! (I have ridden in Spanx, but summer is not the time to do that!)
