If you're someone with a bigger chest, finding a good sports bra is practically impossible. I know, because I've tried them all — wire-free, underwire, extra-supportive, racer-back, criss-cross, you name it. And in addition to the fact that these under garments tend to be extremely uncomfortable (something akin to a panini press for the boobs), they also happen to skew super expensive. The icing on the cake is that they're generally ugly too.
But there is one sports bra, the Lemedy Padded Sports Bra, that a friend (who's shaped like me) raves about. She found it, believe it or not, at Amazon. And now it's on sale for Prime Day for $17! She's not the only fan. Lately the Lemedy Sports Bra has been going viral on TikTok, solving problems for busty exercisers everywhere.
Though I was skeptical (how can thin straps like that hold up during a workout?), I finally ordered one. Spoiler alert: I'm in love with this bra.
It's lightly padded, so even if you're not packing too much, it'll give you a bit of a lift (and you can remove the pads if you like). It's soft and breathable.
Dear reader, let me tell you: The moment I tried it on, I was intrigued. The Lemedy Sports Bra not only holds you in and supports you like a hug, but it actually makes the girls look good, too.
The bra pulls on overhead — no fiddling with hooks and clasps — and the longline design means it can double as a tank top under a sweater or hoodie. And about those straps? I was thrilled to discover they don't dig in to the shoulders or leave red marks. After working out in it, I immediately bought another color. One note: Consider going up a size, especially if you have a larger bust.
The bra is available in 22 colors ranging from neutrals to pastels, and it has quite the following. Not only has it been trending on TikTok for how supportive and cute it is, but it's also amassed over 36,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.
"This is the perfect workout tank!" one shopper raved. "Good support...It’s super flattering and a perfect length for anything high-waisted. I’d even wear this as a going-out top!"
Another agreed: "I absolutely love this sports bra/crop tank! Perfect for bigger boobs! I can never find sports bras that support me fully, and this one does."
If you're self-conscious about your upper back or armpit area, this sports bra has earned the curvy-girl stamp of approval. Shares one: "I’m 5’5, around 150 lbs and have big boobs, and some back and armpit fat, so I usually struggle finding bras that I like. One of my biggest peeves is when the bra elastic cuts right through the armpit/back fat. These don’t do that! They’re perfect for curvy girls! I wear them with high-waisted leggings and the length, coverage and support are honestly great. I’ve tried all the brands out there and this bra is up there if not better than some of them. Do yourself a favor and just buy it. I’m obsessed and ordering it in three more colors."
While I wouldn't recommend this bra for running or any high impact sports, it's great for yoga, pilates, or weight training. Plus, you can wear it out or around the house; it's such a relief to have great support without that squashed sports bra feeling.
The ultimate praise comes from this reviewer, who says she prefers the Lemedy Sports Bra to her pricey Lululemon styles: "Hands down best crop ever! I usually buy Lululemon and this beats anything I’ve bought there. Quality is amazing.... I will be buying it in every color."
