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?

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

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.

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 cup...in 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

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!)

I'd kill to be a DD cup. I'm currently sitting on the verge of a GG cup (and t is natural)

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.:oops:

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!)
