Subject: Athenas! I need "support" help
I have a full C cup, and I'm having a hard time finding a sports bra that isn't a racer back. The problem I have with race back bras is how the weight of my girls seems to get concentrated and pulls intensely on my upper traps.

Anyone have a non-race back sports bra they love? Spill it!!!

All I can wear without spilling out and lacking support is racer back style. Maybe try a different brand? Wider upper straps will distribute the pressure more evenly. Another thing to try is lengthen the straps to bring the girls down a little. Also, maybe the chest strap isn't tight enough because it should be holding most of the weight.

I have an e cup and have minimal pressure issues from racer backs on my shoulders. No more than a regular bra causes anyway.

I think the enell bra is not a racer back.  I am partial to CWX products.  It has a racer back but I used to have to wear 2 sports pras and I can go with just one with the CWX.

The Moving Comfort Fiona bra.  I am between a D and DD cup and I currently wear the Fiona. It has wide, regular straps, not racerback, that can be adjusted with velcro closures, and a nice, wide  3-hook band. It has been my favorite bra for 5 years ads well as the favorite bra of the well-endowed clients who frequented the running store I worked at a few summers back.

I second the Moving Comfort bras.  I've used them for years.  When you get one that fits, the girls stay put!

I love the Enell! I've tried many others and the Enell is the best in my book! However, it isnt the most attractive...I call it a bullet proof vest! And it has a broad coverage area in the back, not really racerback, more like full back! It covers most of the area between both shoulder blades. But the support is fantastic. I'm a 34g and need all the help I can get!

Wacoal makes good one, they sell them at Dillard's. It's a weird design, with the support wires outside, but I can run comfortably with very little movement and no uniboob look. Very expensive at 62$, but at size 36G, it's been worth every penny and I plan to buy more of them. On a side note, they also make the best strapless bra for my size as well.

I get them at Khols for about 30$.  I will not run in anything else. (I'm a C cup)
