OMG how horribly funny is this thread!! I wear a bra, a sports bra and a tank top with a bra built in. But sitting the trot can be uncomfortable. Golden, you have said and posted some of the funniest things ive ever read!

You're killing me. I am 52, and my bra size is 40D - long as well.

And my girls are *shy*, that's why when I lay on my back, they run and hide in my armpits rather than staying centerstage.

I wear a normal bra, I like the padded kind, they seem to give more "protection", though still a lot of movement. I watched a practice dressage test I got taped for myself and couldn't focus on the actual test cos my boobs looked like they were gonna come flying out my top! Needless to say I recently acquired a sports bra and wear that over top of my normal bra. Like other posters said, I like the snug feeling. Now at the gym I don't worry about jogging on the treadmill, and videoing myself trotting doesn't bother me as much anymore hahaha!

For all of you out there who ride in normal bra's. Please please don't ride in underwire bra's I do know of someone who got stabbed by her underwire in a fall and during my most recent fall I was wearing an underwire and now have the most enormous and extremely painful underwire shaped bruise on my chest/boobs from where the wire bent under the pressure and went into my side.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I fifteenth (or whatever) the recommendation for the Enell. I have the regular one, not the light -- which doesn't look nearly as supportive. It straps absolutely everything down. I'm a 38J, and I still have all my teeth after riding Hook's jackhammer trot, so you know it's true.

They're kind of ugly and fairly costly, but they work. I get good deals on eBay on them.

well i'm an F... and i usually wear berlei(? is that how you spell it) and then a nike crop top over the top or another berlei instead of the crop top. also the sports bras with the adjustable straps that can do the cross at the back do amazing things it really supports them

i do however recommend that once you get to a d or dd that you wear two sports bras (it just makes for a more comfortable ride)

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?
i use goddess bra, it actually holds my boobage really good, and they dont bounce as they did before.

Very needed thread! I've worn underwires for many decades-my favorite sports bras have underwires-guess I'll take that stabbing chance. But, if all else fails-there is an operation availble~ A Reduction! I "lost" 2.5 #'s!! Seemed tiny afterward, but I'm still wearing a D cup, so guess that isn't true. I still have some of my old sports bras, & love them in the winter as they are thick & soft, but the regular ones work now unless I'm at a "puffy" stage. If I keep my weight down, I do ok, but man-those things just want to grow. So, be aware ladies, there can be a growth spurt there as a result of the "change".
