Finding a sports bra can be a challenging endeavor if you have large or heavy breasts. At ThirdLove, we understand that every woman deserves comfort, support, and style, no matter her body type.

There are many benefits of sports bras. They support you during your workouts and make it so that your breasts don't get in the way of any activities. However, they are not all created equal. Some are better suited for larger breasts than others. In this article, we will explore the top 5 types of sports bras best suited for larger breasts and what to look for when choosing a workout bra.


Can Heavy Breasts Wear Sports Bras?

First things first, let’s put an end to the age-old myth that sports bras are reserved solely for those with smaller busts. In fact, they are essential for women with larger breasts to provide the necessary support during physical activities. It’s all about finding the sports bra that suits your needs and activity level. 


Best Types of Sports Bras for Large Breasts

There are many different sports bra styles, and each is best for different purposes. Let’s talk through some of the best types of sports bras for those with larger busts.


Adjustable Sports Bras

An adjustable sports bra is one of the best sports bras for large breasts. These bras have adjustable straps and bands to custom-fit your body shape and size. 

A great example of an adjustable sports bra is the Kinetic Adjustable Sports Bra from ThirdLove. It is a high-impact sports bra that can handle any intense workout you demand of it. It has a hook and eye closure at the back and adjustable straps that can be worn in two ways: straight or closed.


High Impact Sports Bras

High-impact sports bras are specifically engineered to minimize bounce and offer superior support during intense workouts. They offer maximum stability for your breasts during vigorous activities such as running, jumping or boxing. 

Yet again, the Kinetic Adjustable Sports Bra shines in this category, proving its mettle. It uses both compression and encapsulation for the best support. 



Low Impact Sports Bras

Some days, you will need to take a notch down on your activities and go walking or do yoga; for such days, opt for low-impact sports bras. These are bras meant to offer light support and comfort for your breasts during less strenuous activities. 

Our Flex Seamless Racerback Sports Bra is the perfect recommendation under this category. It is a low-medium impact bra that offers a seamless, comfortable fit. 


Racerback Sports Bras

Racerback sports bras have straps that converge at the back into a V or T shape. Racerback sports bras distribute the weight of your breasts evenly across your shoulders and back due to their innovative design. 

The Flex Seamless Racerback Sports Bra from ThirdLove is a fantastic option in this category. It’s comfortable racerback helps to distribute the weight of your breasts comfortably and its straps will never slip!


Compression Sport Bras

Compression sports bras compress your breasts against your chest wall to reduce bounce and movement. They usually have no cups, but rather, they have a pullover style. 

The Flex Seamless Racerback is a compression sports bra that once again steps up to the plate. It offers gentle compression to keep everything snug and secure, making it perfect for a wide range of activities.
