I am starting to turn my walking routine into interval training. I added short jogging segments yesterday and it felt good. One reason I hate jogging in the bouncing! I can't stand the feeling and I feel so embarrassed if I am seen by anyone. Sports bras don't work well for me. I have tried different styles. I usually wear a regular bra with a sports bra over it to reduce the movement. It is not so bad once I lose weight, but these intervals will help me lose the weight! I find double layering the bras effective but painful because the straps and elastic did in and cut off circulation. If you have a product to recommend, please send it to me. The price for good motion limiting bras is outrageous! If I am going to spend that kind of cash, I would love to have personal recommendations.

I actually prefer old navy sports bras to anything I've tried - they have some with the supportive cups in them and you can often get them on sale for $10 (regularly maybe $15-$20??). Then I wear an athletic tank on top that also has some support. (again, I like old navy tops and target too!). Depending on your bra size, it still may not give you the support you need, but I think they are very affordable and it works for me. Just something to try!

I recommend wearing a front zip compression bra on top of your high impact support bra with cups. A real compression bra is almost impossible to remove once you are wet/sweaty and exhausted THAT is why you will want front hooks or a zipper. The right compression bra should not slip over you shoulders like a t-shirt That is why you will want something that opens/closes in front. Test 1: if you can easily get your shoulders or hips into an alleged "high impact" bra, then it has too much stretch to be effective. Test 2: if you can shimmy your chest while wearing said bra; you will be flopping up and down during you workout. Test 3: Know before you buy - Jump in the dressing room!

I so sympathise. I was a J cup when I started power-walking and jogging six months ago, and The Bounce was definitely one of the things that made exercising much more difficult, even unpleasant. I didn't have much faith in sports bras generally, not least because I've always needed under-wired bras. One that really works for me, though, is the "Glamorise Sport No-Bounce Camisole Bra" (paste it into Google, spelt with an S). It's surprisingly supportive and comfortable, not overpriced, and it washes well. It does up at the back and has relatively wide adjustable straps. I'd recommend getting a snug and even tight fit, to hold everything in place more effectively. I wear mine for running every day, for Pilates and at the gym, and it reduces the bounce to barely perceptible levels. Fantastic! I'm now into a DD cup, and have continued to wear the same brand. Hope this helps, but message me if you have any trouble finding one. And well done for getting into interval training!
