There is no worse feeling than the bounce of unrestrained boobies. If you aren't one of those crazy ladies who love to go bra-less, there may be plenty of times when you fear that if you descend the steps too quickly, you'll get a good whack in the chin from the girls. So how can you avoid this at the gym? Finding the right sports bra for you is not an easy task, but with these suggestions, you may be able to avoid the booby bounce from now on!
Small Sized Breasts If you fall into the A or B cup size, you're best choice is most likely a compression sports bra. It's also in your best interest to go with racerback straps. Racer back will insure that the bra stays closely fitted to your body to provide the support you need. Having small breasts allows you to change up styles and still have support, so check out these cool bra options!

Average Sized Breasts While you may have a 'normal' breast size, that doesn't mean finding a good fit is easy. No bras are created equal! For a middle ground cup size, we suggest finding a compression bra with wide straps, or a racerback bra with an encapsulation style, simply meaning it has built in cups.

Large Breasts For women with DD's and larger, you really know the pain of the bounce. But there are plenty of options for you as well! For larger breasted women, proper and sufficient support is key. That usually means a thick band underneath and possibly an underwire. You'll also want to find thicker straps to keep everything comfortably lifted.
