Ladies - sports bras :)

Ladies only, (I think!) I need good running bra suggestions. The ones I've got are lovely but tend to become sweat buckets rapidly (due to padding?) and as soon as I stop, they become ice buckets and I have to rip them off asap.

I've got H&M and M&S atm but perhaps I need a sports brand? Have tried BoobyDoo but need to be Houdini to get in and out of it. I'm not well endowed but would still like something supportive, non chafing and BREATHABLE. I'm actually happy to pay up to £40 as getting a bit fed up now. That should be more than enough, shouldn't it?

Thank you in advance :)

    Meabh Decathlon will give you supportive sports bras without breaking the bank, and there are many read moredifferent ones to choose from (light training, medium training and peak training, running, yoga and many more I think)! They are a sports brand I love and if you don't find one there try sports direct

    Diana To be honest I have that problem with all of my gym clothes - if I get sweaty and cool off in it read moreafter...eek! I've realized that I feel the most comfortable in http://www.ryderwear.com.au gym wear. Something about fabrics makes whole experience a lot better

    Robyn Shock Absorber Ultimate Run for me. They batten down the hatches nicely, I find, and so far I've not read moresuffered any chafing either, even when running in it in torrential rain during a 5k a few weeks ago. If you have an Outlet store near you they can be got for a far more sensible price than RRP too - pretty sure I paid £44 for 2. I'm not convinced there is a sports bra out there that you don't need to be houdini to get into and out of though! Agree with what @hari24 says about band sizes coming up small though - I have to go up a band size.

  10. Shock Absorber every time for me. I find the supermarket ones aren't anywhere near as supportive. read moreThe Shock Absorber Run offers veryfirm support but if you don't need quite so much you can use the Multi Sports (I use them for gym work). I buy from Wiggle - and ALWAYS in the sale - if you don't mind some bright colourways then you can get a bargain. http://www.wiggle.co.uk/shock-absorber-ultimate-run-bra-4/

    Hari24 I also like the shock absorber but find the chest band measures on the small side- so care with read moresizing. For longer runs and if you're not rocking the Pamela Anderson look i also really like the Runderwear bra tops, I would wear a 34B (maybe C in some brands) and got a medium Runderwear and it keeps everything in place, and is so comfy and no sweaty boobs this is now my go to bra for long runs, excellent for the temperature control (hot and cold).

    Happy Shopping,

    ceefin61 I have tried lots of sports/running bras including Champion, JJB, M&S, Tesco and Brooks. But 2 years read moreago I bought a Shock Absorber running bra because they were on a really good sale. I don't think I would by any other brand now. Especially the two fasteners. The clip at the neck is a godsend. No more contortionist tricks to get free before a shower. And when it's on, and I'm running, those puppies do not move. At all. And it's so comfortable I don't notice it's on. I would highly recommend it
