Full figure women no longer have to feel challenged buying bras with DD+ cup sizes. Because of this fast-growing market segment, manufacturers offer plenty of different styles in these sizes. Band sizes often start as small as 28-30 and go to 48 or more. Cup sizes may range to an M cup. For active women with larger breasts, a supportive sports bra is a lingerie essential. These DD+ bras, using encapsulation, compression or both, are designed to protect breast tissue and minimize bounce. Some styles have even more support, with features like wide flat underbands, inner slings, straps with reduced or no stretch and high necklines. Look for fabrics that are breathable, with moisture-wicking properties to keep you dryer and more comfortable during workouts. Broad leotard backs and cushioned shoulder straps also ease back and shoulder pain and help reduce muscle fatigue. A good supportive sports bra may be your best workout partner.
