Sports Bras

Hi all, I was just wondering what sports bra's you have all tried and what one's you think are best? I've currently got a Berlei Shock Absorber but need a new one and would appreciate your comments as there seem to be more and more to choose from. I know some people can get away with just the panels in sports tops but I prefer both, especially when running!

    i use crop top type ones that just clamp everything down, but i am very small.

    i have adidas ones (climalite)and nike ones they both work well.

    i didn't like shock absorber, i dont find the bra type ones comfortable too many bit to stick in you, and they can be too tight/loose depending on time of month.

    I've got big boobs so this is a subject close to my heart (literally!) I have two sportjock crop-top type ones, and one other one that's in a croptop kind of dimensions but actually fastens at the back (champion? I bought it in america?)
    My top tip would be to buy the smallest one you can squeeze into- that should keep bouncing down to a minimum. It makes them tricky to get on/off (especially when you or it is sweaty!) but really is alot more comfortable when you're actually doing stuff (I do alot of running). I used to have a shock absorber but wasn;t very impressedI don't think the bra ones are supportive enough for me.

    Thanks for the replies, think I'll try one of the other types and see how it feels. As for getting them on and off when you're hot and sweaty, ever got all tangled up???!!!!! LOL!!!!

    I bought my last one online from lessbounce and their service was great. But it's best to go and try loads on in a shop first, then go look on the internet for the one you want. Make sure you hop about and jump up and down in the shop as much as poss (if it's proper sports shop they shouldn't mind!) to check how secure you feel. Last time I tried this I banged my head on the mirror, ut then again I'm a bit of a klutz :)
