    Hiya :) All boys out, girl talk incoming!! :laughing:






    So anyway! lol... I need a new sports bra. The one I wear to work out with now (I have three identical ones) is awesome, but it is getting way too small and isn't giving me the support I need; I'm in PAIN after workouts! The hard part is, the only place that sells these bras is a couple of hours away from my house, and there's no way I'll be able to get down there anytime soon.

    Can anyone recommend something to try? A couple of requirements I have are: 1) has to be hook-n-eye, I had the ones you have to pull over your head. 2) I need something that has a LOT of support. and 3) I'm hoping to find something that's friendly to my "fat back", and doesn't cause those lovely wads of fat under my arms and above the strap :crazy2: I hate that!

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!! :hug:

    I've got an Enell that I like. (enell.com) It is front closure hook and eye. Lots of hooks and eyes. Keeps the "grils" really tucked in though and I don't have pain when I wear it. I can also wear the pull over style too so not sure if I can be much help there with your specific needs.

    I just got in the Champion sale catalog today. They have sales and some zip fronts, but that would be dependent on size too. They are tech material bras that are on sale. No cotton.

    If you look online the Champion catalog says they have a bra selector to help with choice. I think you are looking for maximum support or for sure high support.

    Good luck with the quest. I'd be interested in knowing what you end up choosing.

    I second the enell recommendation. I love that I'm a size 0 in enell, and may even be "00" before long.

    I, too, need lots of support and fourth the Enell vote. I've also had really good luck with Champion Powersleek. Absurdly long url for bra

    Another vote for Title Nine! That is where I get my workout bra's from - I like the 4 Dumbell versions :)

    Hmm I think some tax refund is being budgeted to a good bra for working out. I like the zipper idea but may have to try out that Fiona bra.

    I have a couple cheap champion or Hanes ones I got from Walmart or Target around but they are pull over and its just hard to take off when you are sweaty. And well like you said awkward putting them on no matter how you look at it.
