The Enell sports bra is a consistent favorite among full-figured, pregnant, and nursing exercisers. The Enell uses encapsulation (which, like a regular bra, separates your breasts into different cups) and compression to provide comfortable support. In her review, former Running Guide Jesslyn Cummings offers this endorsement: "Enell bras are as close as you can come to leaving your chest at home." Can't beat that with a stick.

Hallelujah Bra

This is another favorite bra for full figured women, offering that great encapsulating/compressing technology that is both flattering and comfortable. As the bra experts at Title 9 Sports say, your breasts "don't look like they start somewhere in the middle of your back." It's made of sweat-wicking fabric to keep you comfortable and dry as well. This bra is best suited for women with around C-D cups doing higher impact activities.

The Powersleek is a good overall choice for fuller figures, offering maximum motion control for C-D cups, high motion control for DD cups, and medium motion control for DDD cups. Like many of the other bras mentioned here, the Powersleek offers encapsulating, molded cups for shape and support, and wide, cushioned straps that adjust in the front (a nice feature). The padded band makes for a comfortable fit around the rib cage and the back closure makes it easier to get this one on and off.

The Women's Curve Crusader is another good choice, but more for medium impact activities, and offers support for A-DD in high impact exercise. The straps cross in the back, which is flattering, but you do have to pull it over your head, just so you know.  The fabric is breathable so sweat is wicked away from your body, leaving you dry and comfortable.
