In our latest Real Women Review article, we reveal the best high impact running bras as recommended by real female athletes just like you
Best running bras for C-Cup and below
Punch Sports Bra, £39.00 – Coaches Recommendation
“My go-to is the Punch sports bra, it’s super comfortable and provides a good amount of coverage so if I run with my top off I don’t feel like I’m running near naked!
I’m a 36B and I got the small size which fits me comfortably.
I really like the wide shoulder straps and the wide, thick chest band, so there’s no riding up, no chafing, just comfort.
It’s rated as medium support and I find it gives me enough support for high-intensity sessions.” – Lucja, GRTW Ultra Coach
M&S Extra High Impact Non-Wired Sports Bra, £25.00
“M&S high impact front fastening sports bras are just fab for the smaller chested lady – I’m a 34B.” – Jacquie
The non-wired sports bras from M&S come in cup size A-E. We love that the front zip fastening makes getting kitted up for your run a breeze.
The M&S High Impact range also have a different model for fuller busted ladies, available in sizes DD-GG. It also comes with cross-over straps at the back for extra support.
Runderwear Original Support Running Bra, £50.00
“Runderwear, is my favourite without a doubt – no buckles, straps, hooks etc, just comfort!” – Kim
The Runderwear bra boasts a super soft breathable fabric, enhancing airflow and helping to remove sweat from your body. It’s soft against the skin, too – which significantly reduces the risk of rubbing or chafing.
Best running bras for D-Cup and above
Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra, £46.00
If you are a C-cup or above, you have to try the Shock Absorber Ultimate Run Bra. These are a must for running. It does what it says on the tin and is a total game changer for the well-endowed runner!- Vikki
This model is designed specifically for runners and claims to reduce bounce by up to 78% and provide friction-free comfort.
Sizing Tip: This style can come up small. Shock Absorber recommend to try a band size up from your normal size. E.g if you normally wear a 34D, go for a 36D.
ENELL Sport High Impact Bra, £53.10
“I swear by the ENELL high impact sports bra. I’m a 34GG so need super support (otherwise known as scaffolding!) It’s not the most stylish, but it’s extremely supportive. I’ve tried umpteen brands and none compare.” – Bryony
The ENELL sports bras are designed exclusively for C-cups and above, they fasten securely on the front and are wire-free for maximum comfort.
Panache Sports Non Wired Bra, £40.00
“As a larger chested lady, I couldn’t recommend the Panache ones more! Nothing moves or jiggles when doing high impact exercise and it gives fantastic support. It also washes very well – my oldest is 2 years old and going strong.”
The Panache Non Wired Sports Bra offers amazing support without uncomfy wires.
The wide cushioned shoulder straps with racer back ring detail help to disperse pressure when exercising and further reduce bounce. Available in a B to H cup.
