We’re really over trying to work out in little bralets. What happened to truly supportive sports bras made for bounce control and comfort?
Forget the barely-there athleisure bras storming the fitness fashion scene. These types of products work for yoga but won’t offer much support on the treadmill or during circuit training.
Here are some new super supportive sports bras for DD+ boobs that still tick the style boxes.
1. Shock Absorber
Concept Brands is an Australian boutique distributor of the best athleisure wear, fashion lingerie and sports bras worldwide. From stylish to sexy, feminine, practical and playful, Concept Brands brings the best international labels – including Shock Absorber – to a select network of retailers.
For a bra that won’t let you down, Shock Absorber’s Ultimate Run Bra (Padded) is an ideal choice that guarantees no bounce and supreme comfort. I prefer the black and silver colourway for a bra that goes with every activewear outfit. The padding isn’t removable but it’s really subtle and doesn’t enhance the size of your bust, which I like. Enquire about your nearest stockist here: conceptbrands.com.au.
2. Lorna Jane
Amazon Australia stocks lots of top brand sportswear and fitness fashion. I’ve been loving shopping through there recently and especially love this awesome Lorna Jane Women’s High Impact Sports Bra. Lorna Jane have achieved what I thought was impossible – a generic-sized sports bra (S, M, L..) that offers the support and fit of a bra-sized product. I wear an M and I’m usually a 32DD.
I really love the details of the product: there’s a supportive under-boob strap that magically keeps your boobs in place, plus a little appliqué heart on the inside. My pet hate is nipples making a show through my sports bra and there’s no risk of that while wearing the Lorna Jane. There’s a bit of subtle and effective padding plus I love the textured fabric.

I love the look and feel of this Bonds Full Busted Medium Impact Contour Sporty Top Bra, which keeps me supported and cool thanks to high-density perforated foam cups. It comes in white (White Frost) or black (Ink Drop).
The Bonds Sporty Top is made for girls with fuller busts and ideal for medium to high-impact training. It’s my new go-to sports bra that blends fashion and functional comfort, complete with logo printed straps in true Bonds style. Shop here: Bonds Full Busted Medium Impact Contour Sporty Top Bra.
I’ve been wearing Odlo sportswear for several years and it never fails to impress. More recently, I’ve been loving the Odlo Seamless High-Support Sports Bra – the top-level support bra out of three they offer. You can really feel the seamless functional construction, which makes the bra supremely comfortable. It’s made in a way to reduce chafing and irritation.
I love the material’s ribbed sections at the sides as they provide extra support. Meanwhile, moisture management wicks away sweat and keep you cool and dry. The Odlo bra comes with removable padding for extra coverage but I prefer to wear it without. It has an adjustable hook-and-eye back fastening for the perfect fit.
