Desperately Seeking Boobies writes, "I'm looking for help finding a sports bra that is cute, flattering and won't make a small chest look even smaller. Embarrassingly, I've still been wearing my old nursing sports bra (my daughter is already 2!) because it is the only one with padding, support and shape. I know if there's a bra out there that can make me look less like a 12 year old boy, you will find it!"
Hey DSB, never fear! Sports bras have come a long way over the last several years, and there are plenty of options for us less-than-well-endowed ladies. The trick is to find a bra that encapsulates each breast separately, providing support and lift without squishing them into one odd-looking uniboob. I also suggest looking for a bra that's in your chest/cup size before opting for something in a S/M/L sizing. You'll get a much nicer fit!
1. Moving Comfort Vixen Bra ($20) Moving Comfort makes a ton of great sports bra options for smaller-chested women, so if you find a local place that sells the brand, go try on a few different styles!
2. Patagonia Turnaround Bra ($59)
3. Champion T-Back Sports Bra ($38)
4. UA Sport Plunge Sports Bra ($50)
5. Natori Yogi Racerback Sports Bra ($68)
