The collective groan of every woman when it comes time to look for a new sports bra? Yup. We know it. A great sports bra can be hard to find — we need support, utility, comfort and affordability.

But don’t be discouraged; there are plenty of options out there! We asked some of our favorite plus-size models, content creators and professionals to share their top picks for sport bras. We also found some other top-rated, bestselling plus-size brands you should give a go during your next workout.
Best plus-size sports bras, according to professionals
Available from sizes 32D to 42H, this plus-size sports bra from Livi Rae Lingerie features functional pique fabric and a netting insert to regulate moisture. For writer, event producer and PhatGirlBouteeqe owner Maui Bigelow, it's also perfect for her busy lifestyle. “I love the bra because it provides the support, control and comfort," she told Shop TODAY. "A woman on the move needs a sports bra that covers all the bases.”
This sports bra is engineered for a bounce-free workout and boasts band sizes from 36 to 48 and up to a H cup. Model and football player Chevnee Triplett especially loves one often-overlooked feature: “The bra is comfortable, especially the wide straps.”
Model Robina Wilder's favorite sports bra from Adidas is not only made for high-impact activities like HIIT workouts or long-distance runs with water-absorbent materials and high-support compression, it's also made from Primegreen, “a series of high-performance recycled materials."
Parfait, a size-inclusive lingerie brand, has one of the largest cup and band size ranges we’ve seen on the market, going all the way up to a 44I. Candice Kelly, an in-demand plus-size model, raves about this bra's fit and comfort. “The dynamic bra is supportive, breathable and doesn’t dig into my shoulders, so I’m completely focused on my workout,” she said.
If you need extra support during physical activity, it's not uncommon to have to wear an extra bra with your sports bra. Essie Golden, a New York-based content creator, said the Elila sports bra was the only one she could wear without having to do this. “[This is] my absolute favorite for heavier chested women,” Golden raves.
