Hey Ladies,
When you all are out riding, do you have a certain bra that works best for you? Or does your day-to-day style provide enough support? What sort of riding do you do?
Thanks!

I'm in Phoenix, and our riding is very rocky and bumpy - also I'm a B to C cup. I ride a Scott Scale 29er hardtail. I find that the only thing that dictates my bra is the temperature - summer time I go with my cheap Target cottons that are nice and airy. Winter I switch over to more material. Actually this past summer I thought of going without a few time (don't judge me, you would too in 100+ temps, lol) but I opted for a built-in bra/tank top, the built-in is very sheer so it's nice and airy.

My day-to-day bra is meant to make me look good in my work clothes but certainly doesn't prevent the girls from swaying :D

For biking, I like my C sized girls strapped down and motionless for any type of terrain that I ride on (I live in Vancouver area; my riding can be anything from bike commuting to North Shore freeriding to bike park to technical AM to 4+ hour XC). I love the Champion bras (which my husband bought my first one years ago): http://www.championusa.com/Champion...egory-Champion/Women_SportsBras-Champion.aspx

I recently bought a Wonderbra Coolmax. I've used it for biking, running and volleyball and so far the girls like it; it's comfortable and the wicking action of the material is nice.

Just like a bike seat, I think everyone has a preference for what bra works best for them. The most important aspects is that it fits you properly and does its job of reducing bob.

Thanks for the input.
For now my day-to-day bras are doing all right since I've not had the chance to get off pavement yet =(

Boobs and butts are personal things indeed! I think I may need to have someone check out my seat and see if that needs adjusting. Feels like that is hitting me wrong.

I find that I do not like any motion at all when doing any physical activity; however, like most "c" sized women, I find that it's difficult to achieve this. My solution: wear more than one bra. I have a few nicer, more supportive bras that I'll wear as a first layer and then some not-so-nice, less supportive ones that I'll throw on top. It works brilliantly. My husband always thinks I'm nuts when he sees me decked out this way, but it's the only solution I've ever found (despite spending a small fortune on bras that promise to be fully supportive).

My Champions are my favorites for > c-size. They aren't as stretchy as others, so are harder to get on, but they support pretty well and don't make my shoulder muscles ache.

Anyways, carry on with your (admittedly) serious discussion.

But keep me informed if pictures do arrive - or Pitchers!

LOL I think i like you, highdelll :D

In a purely platonic shredding down trails sort of way, of course.

And there are "picher"s out there, just not what any of us was expecting...

2 of my top 3 bras for mountain biking are Moving Comfort brand, & the 3rd is Sugoi. One of the Moving Comforts I had to exchange for a L, so if you're in-between sizes, you might want to go up one. I like 'em pretty snug, almost too snug when first put on, but I never notice it after that. I trust the standard racer back styles, with fairly full coverage (under arms, neckline, etc) -no wimpy spaghetti straps.

Okay, I'll share my BESTEST kept secret. There is a Under Armour Reversible sports bra (why it's reversible I don't know). If the picture loads, I wear it with the "slants" to the outside.......then I stuff my gels in them, or my leftover gel packet afterwards. It works SO well - no fumbling in a zipped pocket, no reaching behind my back - just right up, or down, the shirt and their tucked in there perfectly. You could store anything in there! And it's a very supportive bra (kind of like the double bra mentioned above). :thumbsup:
