So summer is coming close here in Europe. might be a silly question,but maybe someone can suggest a GOOD,USEFUL sports bra for a big breast ridder(D cup)?
I have tried a few simple ones,but still riding dressage in the summer don't make them stay in place...

or should i just give up and deal with it,because i'm a rider with big boobs??

Sorry,if it sounds silly,but i mean it really seriously and i think i'm not the only one,who wants to find a useful sports bra! :)

I am not well endowed, but even with what little I have it can be uncomfortable sometimes. What I have done is worn two sports bras when riding, especially our pogo stick horse, doubling up helped a lot.

As for particular brands I really like my Nike sports bras.

Like gssw5, I use Nike. A friend told me to try them out years ago when we would run together so I started using them to ride in too.

I don't have any specific brand names to recommend (I buy cheap, LOL), but in the cheapy ones, look for the "high impact" level. Low or moderate impact sports bras do nothing for me.

I wear Danskin sport bras as they have adjustable shoulder straps which I must have as most sports bras has too short of straps which makes the bottom of band of the bra ride in the middle of what they are supposed to be supporting.

Love love love the adjustable strap Danskin sport bras. They even have little thinsg that keep the 'goose bumps' from showing

I'm a 36 E so I feel (literally) your pain.
What I have found that works is to get a full coverage bra( one that covers the majority of both breasts) with or without underwire in your regular size. Put this one on first.
Next get a high impact/ compression bra and put this on over the regular bra, essentially you'll be 'double bagging' your chest.

If you still have too much bounce after using both of the bras (I get a little too 'jiggly with it' sometimes.) I'll apply a snug ACE bandage over both of the bras.

I know it sounds like a lot, and it is, but if you hurt after you've been riding, and you don't want unsightly bounce when at a show, you may have to go that far.

I should add that I tend to use mid-priced brands for the sports bras, no particular brand, and if I can find them on sale I buy multiples as I go through them at regular intervals. As for the regular bras just use one that is sturdy with wide straps, the brand you use depends on which one fits you best.

That's why I ride a gaited horse.
Seriously, I have 2 Champion sports bras that I like a lot. Very comfortable and they've lasted for several years now.

Shock Absorber bras. They come in different "levels" for certain activities. I use the running ones.
36 D - I end up looking like a small C - and nothing moves. At all.
