Our go-to, larger-breasted tester has forsaken her go-to sports bra. She describes it as Trading Up. That's also how she describes her new boyfriend. The Trade-Up (we're talking bra not boyfriend here) supports her like the dickens and yet cools with mesh in all the right spots. She says the 2-point closure system is tricky the first time or two, but then it's a snap. 89% poly/11% spandex. Cushioned adjustable straps. 32-38 C, D, DD, E(3D)

Plenty of support for work and workout up to DDD. Poly/nylon/elastane. 32-40 C, D, E(2D), F(3D)
Testers rate this cut and sew cup "extremely supportive" in the underwire category, with top marks for comfort, coverage and encapsulation.

We recommend this bra for C-DDD cups looking for all-day support in a shaping bra. 32-42 C-DDD

For this bra, designers carefully spec'd some of the finest sports fabrics and the most exacting construction. Nothing less would do for the superwoman in all of us.

Aquator/spandex. 32-38 B-DD
