I've never had a sports bra. I always just rode in my regular bar and since most of my riding was commuting or other "street' Riding it wasn't a big deal.
Now I'm thinking it might be a good idea to get a sports bra, as my "street" bra is not doing a good job when I ride (especially off-road).

Looking at the choices it seems very hard to find something decent for anything larger than about a 40" chest. I'm a 42 D and would welcome suggestions for something that would offer better support (without wires!).

Thanks --bh

You might want to check the Title Nine Sports catalog/website. They have a million choices (well, maybe not quite that many, but more in one place than I've seen anywhere else).

I'm a 36DD and love champion brand bras. Their selection for full figure is really good and provides lots of support, especially if you run. But on the bike for road type rides or easy fire road trails I use regular sports bras like the ones Sheila Moon offers. I wear the bras for hot weather and her shimmels for cold weather as an "extra" layer.

Moving Comfort http://www.movingcomfort.com/ has the best sports bras!! I've tried all the other brands of sports bras and moving comfort is the only bra that works for my girls. The Moving Comfort website has search options depending on your cup size and underwire preference. I hope this helps!!

Thanks to all who replied. I looked up your suggestions, did some research and made a few phone calls.
It seems that, due to my chest size, I exist Outside The Pale.
None of the companies suggested offer a sport bra to fit me.
The search continues.
Thanks --Beth

I've seen a few ladies on another board recommend the Last Resort Bra. It has a listing that appears to include your size. Bit expensive, but I guess if it's too expensive depends on how badly one needs it.

Found it!

Moving Comfort's Athena bra actually comes in a size large enough for large-chested me.
I tried one on and was so happy I got two more.

Thanks to all who offered suggestions.
