just been on they have a few sports bras level 4 support ? for about £26/28 dont know if thats cheaper or what like but worth a look
the best sports ones don't have wires. The ones I use are 'shock absorber'. I think they're by Berli but can't remember. I'm a 36F and they keep my bad boys firmly in one place when I'm running!
M&S ones are pretty rubbish I've found. It's worth paying that little bit extra for the amount of difference it makes. See it as an investment!

I just bought the extra high impact m & s one with the zip up the front and it's FAB!!! Held me in place during a step class and a body combat class so it gets my vote - best sports bra I've ever had

When I was in M & S last week they had loads of different sizes. I think you need to go in and try on anyway as sports bras can vary a little to your normal size.

Good luck

try figleaves.com or bravissimo.co.uk, they have a really good range of sizes
The berlei shock absorber is the best and for bigger sizes you really need that support - I'm a GG so I know! brastop.com are usually the cheapest for the brand names, bravissimo and figleaves usually have better choice but are dearer, though they usually have somethings on sale - worth checking their sites and running a search for your size. Personally I wouldn't recommend M&S for larger sizes.

By the way, sports bras usually feel a bit tight and restricted compared to a normal bra.

I wear Shock Absorbers too - I am 36DD and M & S just isn't heavy duty enough!
If you have a TK Maxx near you it might be worth a look - I always find bargain sports bras in there!
shock absorber all the way!! 34ff! also i have got them from an ebay shop before - far cheaper xx


One last chance


Doing it for my girls!
I'm a 40 DD and I bought some sports bras from Matalan for the gym. They are fine for what I do....very low impact treadmill etc. And they are cheap!!
Theres a bravissimo in town now on bold street so they will deffo have soething but i dont know how much theyll be as pricey i think, also the new john lewis is bound to have stuff in lpool 1. good look. p.s. i used shock absorber before and they good, anna kournikiva used to advertise for them!! I not exercised in a while so will need a new one myself when i do! x

I really think you need to try them on for yourself to find what is best for you. I have a shock absorber too and I really do find the M&S one so much more supportive (and so much easier to get in and out of as it zips up the front :))

hiya hun i'm a 42dd and wear ashock absorber bra did cost me £28 but well worth it the boobies stay in place and are very well supported especially when doing skipping/;star jumps etc the last thing you need is to feel uncomfortable/embarrased when exercising so if you can afford it i would highly recomend the shock absorber

good luck with the continued exercise
