With injuries like sagging breast tissue and back injuries a reality, manufacturers are reacting to the needs of bigger-boobed women who want to make exercise part of their lives. We recently tested one underwired and one non-wired bra, both of which are constructed for high impact activity – see below.

Freya Active Underwired Crop Top Sports Bra in 36H

FREYA-ACTIVE-INDIGO-UNDERWIRED-CROP-TOP-SPORTS-BRA-WITH-MOULDED-INNER-4004-PERFORMANCE-CAPRI-PANT-4005-1Our top choice in comfort and performance – its maximum ratings are well deserved. Firstly, a four-hook fastening ensures the bra won’t ride up your back, and the deep profile between breasts noticeably reduces strain. The cups hold the breasts without compression and we noticed minimal bounce during jogging. The puncture resistant underwire casing is big plus too. Probably the clincher is the minimising effect this bra gives, resulting in a flattering silhouette when worn under clothing. This is a full coverage bra that benefits from odour management fabric. It also doubles as outerwear so is suitable for the gym. The only caveat is you may want to downsize one back size, as the bottom band is roomy around the ribcage. Available in sizes 28-40 to H cup. Colours – black and violet. RRP £40.00.

Freya Soft Cup Sports Bra in 36H
FREYA-ACTIVE-CHARCOAL-SOFT-CUP-SPORTS-BRA-4391-PERFORMANCE-CAPRI-PANT-4005This bra is similar in construction to the Shock Absorber B109 and utilises mesh fabric, which is breathable and moisture wicking. The multi-panelled cups are moulded, with two layers of fabric underbust and at the sides for extra shape and support without bulk. Wide adjustable straps at the shoulder support without digging. The bra fastens with a four hook panel, de rigueur for sports bras. Available in sizes 28-40 to H cup, and in five colours. RRP £29.00.

Both bras are available from larger department stores and mail order throughout the UK, including at the no.1 specialist in sports lingerie. LessBounce are now giving away a free gift with every Freya sports bra ordered, so get in there, ladies!
