Subject: Ladies - tri sports bra?
I have always worn a long tri top/sports bra combo, but I have a great tri top that I would like to wear on occassion that would require a separate sports bra.  Any recommendations on a tri sports bra that would dry quickly and would not chafe?  I would definitely test it out ony my long runs to see how it holds up.  Thanks!

My brand is Moving Comfort.  There are different styles- not sure which one mine is.  It looks solid in front but has seperate cups inside. Great support and can't even tell its on.

I :heart: the C9 brand from Target. My go-to bras for everything from tris to hiking/SAR to horseback riding. I get the ones with the real racer-back, none of the spaghetti strap gym-goer type!

Moving comfort - especially if you're C or up.  You've got a lot more flexibility with brands if you're under C cup, though.  MC Fiona with adjustable straps is great support, wicking and fast drying.  You could even swim in just that and tri-shorts and throw the top on at T1 if you were not as modest (and chubby) as I am.

I have some great Moving Comfort bras, but they don't seem to dry fast and for whatever reason, they chafe on occasion during my long runs (which is why I am looking for something else).  I don't need a lot of support (C and under club).  I will check these out - thanks!

I buy Speedo 2 piece racing swim suits and wear the top as a sport bra for races.  Caveat:  I am NOT large breasted.  If you are, I think the swim suit top could still be a nice base layer under another dryfit style bra.

It might sound a little off to all you pro tri clothes wearers out there but I love my Old Navy sports bras.  They work great for me and are WAY cheaper than most other good sports bras you can find out there.

I just got the DeSoto Carrera Full top and the Carrera sports bra that matches it.  I plan on doubling them up for my tri.  I tried just the full top and I didn't feel as it was supportive enough by itself and I am a B/small C.  Tried them on together and it is perfect.

I wish I could love them..They don't hold me!  I do love them for just cycling though.
