Sports Bras for back sizes 18 to 30 (AU)

Guest post by Tish Monahan, co-founder and director of Sports Bra Store, She Science. I asked Tish to share with us the sports bra options for women beyond a size AU18. They specialise and are therefore immersed in Sports bras, so who better to give us their professional opinion.

I feel strongly about the fact that women of all shapes and sizes need to be able to be active comfortably and confidently. The flow on effects of living a sedentary lifestyle can obviously be catastrophic.

Finding good quality Sports Bras for any ‘difficult to find’ sizes in Australia can be a real nightmare. With the total Sports Bra sales in Australia thought to make up approximately 2% of the total lingerie sales, it’s hard to see that changing in the near future.

As a store that has chosen to specialise exclusively in Sports Bras we have the luxury of being able to invest our entire stock room in a range of Sports Bras for all shapes, sizes, activity demands and personal style preferences.

Our favourite Sports Bras available in band sizes greater than a size 18 (AU).

Enell Sport

Enell+Sports+Bra+black+front+fastening

For those that fit perfectly in to the Enell sizing system, this bra can be hard to beat. This non-underwire, front fastening bra achieves its support via the compression method. Our customers love the high coverage, full back and wide pressure dispersing straps on the Enell.

Available in Black and White, as well as additional colours by request. The Enell can be suitable for up to a band size 30.

Elomi Energise

ENERGISE-POMEGRANATE-UNDERWIRED-SPORTS-BRA-WITH-J-HOOK-8041

 

For those that love the familiarity of an underwire in a Sports Bra, the Elomi Energise is a favourite. This bra does an A grade job of separating and lifting breast tissue, while leaving you feeling well supported during your activity. Our customers love the extra inch of coverage around the neckline that works to eliminate breast tissue from being able to ‘escape’ vertically during activity. The sliding cinch clip (J Hook), means the bra can be converted to a racer back style if you wish.

Available in Black, White, Nude and Red.

The Elomi is currently available up to band size 22. We do find the Energise to be generous in the band fit, so may be an option for up to band sizes 24 and to a J cup.

Moving Comfort Jubralee

Moving Comfort Jubralee black sports bra 2

If its coverage, compression and supreme comfort you are after than the Jubralee may be the Sports Bra for you! The traditional / straight strap configuration make this a popular style in store for those wanting an easy bra to get on and off without sacrificing support. The front adjusting straps allow for fuss-free alterations to the strap length. The interior cups aim to encourage some breast separation, while you’re left feeling nicely compressed in this bra. As a bonus the front adjusting straps make this bra ‘maternity appropriate’!

The Jubralee is currently available up to a band size 22 and an E cup. Available in Black, White and seasonal colours in some sizes.

 

Berlei Full Support Sports Bra

Berlei+Curves

We find our customers enjoy the ‘familiarity’ of this bra. In store we often utilise this Sports Bra as a lighter impact option for ladies who are getting back in to activity or choose low impact exercise options. This bra gets 10/10 for separating and uplifting breast tissue, leaving wearers with a brilliantly well-defined shape. The straps can be crossed or left as a traditional / straight back, which both have their advantages.
The Full Support is available in Black and White. It is available up to band size 20 in some sizes and a DD to H cup on selected styles.
