Another vote for Enell sports bra. My local runners store carries them but I used to have to order online.

Title nine catalog carries it and its the only bra getting their 5 dumb bell rating - no bounce!!

Funny, I didn't even consider walking. Do you speed walk or walk with weights?

30G here - I wear an underarmor sports bra and love it. It's called the endure - it's their high impact sports bra. It's a pain to get on and off because it's so tight, and they squish me into a uni-b00b, but I have trained for and done a few half marathons in them now and love it. Especially because it wicks away the moisture, it doesn't feel like a sauna.

Oh, and +1 for couch to 5k. I downloaded mp3's that have the audio cues in them to a good mix of music. Fits the kind of music I listened to in college. I got them for free at runningintoshape.com.

ETA: If you're a hard-to-find bra size, check out figleaves.com. Can't say enough awesome things about their selection and prices!

I wear a Brakette, and I absolutely love it. It's a little pricey to me at $45, but it is absolutely worth the money IMO. It even has a pocket on the side for your key/ipod/small item.

with the right fitting bra you won't be bouncing all over the place and you won't feel smushed too much either. try the moving comfort ones. i have two juno bras and they are great. i'm training for a marathon right now and having the right bra on a 17 mile training run is very important.

still, i'm very jealous of the runners who are able to throw on any old sports bra and go. some of us just aren't that "lucky"
2nd the moving comfort Juno. Got mine on Zappos.

No weights. I walk as fast as I can without causing the a fore mentioned bounce. I know I am at a good pace when I can talk but it is uncomfortable to do so.
Besides what is the point of being in good shape if my ****s hitting my knees cause I have damaged the muscle tissue by bouncing.

Congrats on starting running and your post cracked me up!

I saw an article recently on how to find a good bra, but I can't find it at the moment. If/when I do I'll post the link for you to read yourself, but the main points I took away from it:

- You're looking for a bra for "full support" or "high impact," whatever the highest rating is.

- stretch the material of the cups up/down and left/right. It shouldn't give very much at all. Same with the straps. Stretchy = NOT good.

- you should be able to get two fingers under the straps but it shouldn't be loose.

- Cross-back straps are probably the best support option (as opposed to the U shape like a regular bra)

- Make sure you get a good cup size - too big and you'll bounce all over; too small and it squishes Compression is good!

- Don't wear the same bra twice without washing. I did that a few times and regretted it

- Wash: cold water, regular detergent, but do NOT put it in the dryer. That will kill whatever support pretty quickly. Just hang to dry.

I found a great bra at Target on the sale rack for $8, just testing them out. I doubt that will happen again for a while but there were several kinds and not all of them were the high impact, but you can find them for less. I second the many other recommendations for Moving Comfort as well.

ETA: ok here are a few articles that repeat some of the other things I read:

I hear talk of "getting fitted" for shoes. What's so different about it from getting running shoes from somewhere like Famous Footwear or somewhere similar?

If you get fitted at a running store, they should be able to recommend shoes that are right for your body type, foot type, etc. My running store will have me stand without shoes on to see if my arches roll in and check to see if I pronate. Some places will even watch you run on a treadmill. They'll bring out 3-4 different shoes for me to try (all do the same thing but they'll be different brads). I try them on, run a couple of laps and pick out a pair. You don't get that type of runner-specific expertise and input at a Famous Footwear.

My running store video tapes me on a treadmill. Truthfully, once I figured out what type of shoes I needed and what brands work for me, I buy for less online. If I get injured and need a different shoe for recovery, etc, I go back to the running store and buy there.

The running stores not only have expert advice, but a wide selection of shoes specifically made for the activity (running vs walking). They know the habits of the shoes - this one washes well, this one works for plantar facshieitis (totally butchered that spelling!), this one is good for flat footed runners, wide footed runners, long narrow feet, people who are new to running. I guess that would also be advice, but it's also EXPERIENCE!!

Same reason if you're were into competitive cycling you'd go to a bike shop, not wal-mart for a bike. Jmho.

After years of having to double up on the bras, the enell is life changing. I haven't found anything close to it.

I think Oprah recommended it at one point too.

I ordered an Enell bra today based on reviews from here. Expensive, but my bras are what keep me from running. I only ordered one for now, but if I like them I'll order a couple more for changing frequently.

So thank you OP for starting this thread!
