Growing up I played sports, so sports bras have been an essential part of my wardrobe for almost my entire life. After over a decade of searching for the perfect high impact plus size sports bra for my large breasts, I am happy to say I have finally found it!
If you are an ABC SharkTank fan like me, you may have seen the brand give their pitch back in 2016. I remember watching the episode and thinking that I had never seen a sports bra quite like that one and how maybe, just maybe it would actually work.
Shefit is a women’s athletic wear brand that is dedicated to providing high-quality, supportive sports bras for women of all sizes. Founded in 2015 by Sara Moylan, the brand has quickly become a popular choice for women who are looking for a comfortable and functional sports bra that can keep up with their active lifestyle.
One of the standout features of Shefit sports bras is their customizable fit. Each bra is designed with adjustable straps and band sizes, allowing women to find the perfect fit for their unique body shape. This customization also means that women can wear the same bra for a range of activities, from low-impact yoga to high-impact running, without having to switch to a different piece of athletic wear.
Another factor that sets Shefit apart from other sports bras on the market is the brand’s commitment to inclusivity. Shefit offers a wide range of sizes, including larger cup sizes, to ensure that women of all shapes and sizes can find a supportive sports bra that fits them properly. This is particularly important for women who are larger in the bust, as many sports bras on the market can be uncomfortable and restrict movement during physical activity.
The Plus Size Sports Bras I Chose to Buy
Over the years, the styles and colors of sports bras has evolved on the site. I have tried all of their styles of sports bras, but for now, let’s just talk about my absolute favorite: Ultimate Sports Bra.
There are several different features that make this bra unique and allow it to provide more support than other sports bras. The 3 features of the bra that make it an absolute stand out for me are:
1.Adjustable Straps-Yes, a lot of bras have straps that can be adjusted, but these are velcro so they are so simple to alter for each wear
2. Adjustable Band- Again, this feature is velcro which makes it makes it easy to tighten once the bra is already on, guaranteeing that you get the perfect fit every time.
3. Front Closure- I have a love hate relationship with front closures on my bras. If they aren’t done correctly, I find that they pop open on me and don’t leaving me feeling secured in the slightest. The really great thing about this bra is that it not only has a high quality zipper up the front, but it also has hook and eye closures under the zipper to make sure that nothing pops out! 🙂
What is the Big Difference?
I do not make the statement lightly that this bra has changed my workout game. I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on sports bras over the years and this is the first one that I’ve found that really holds my girls in place no matter how long or how hard the workout is.
The first wear or two it does feel a little bit different, not uncomfortable, just different than the sports bras I was used to. But once I realized the amount of support it provided I immediately fell in love. The way this bra keeps the weight of my breasts close to my chest really helps cut down on the bouncing while I’m moving around. And let’s be honest, when the girls are large and in charge, the bouncing isn’t only uncomfortable and distracting but it can become genuinely painful.
I find that this bra offers not only tremendous support but it also is easily adjustable, so if your weight is fluctuating or you are extra bloated one day, there’s no need to worry, because you can be confident that your sports bra will still fit perfectly.
It is also good to note that they come in sizes XS-6XL.
While this bra offers incredible support, I do find that the shape it gives my breasts under my shirt isn’t always ideally. That plus the closures and velcro can be bulky and definitely don’t create smooth lines. That being said, I don’t care about either of those when I’m working out. So that doesn’t bother me. I just don’t wear this bra all day long, just when I go to the gym or on a hike.
This is a great example of a bra that absolutely masters one category but isn’t made to do everything. So keep that in mind. This is a bra that is meant for heavy duty lifting and not necessarily everyday all wear.
What Are You Waiting For?!
Since trying this bra, I have bought it in multiple other colors and recommended it to my family and friends. If you’ve been searching for the perfect plus size sports bra, this one is for YOU! It comes in tons of different colors and you can absolutely find one to match your style!
