Supporting "The Two Girls"
A GREAT Bra for Triathletes

Triathlon Event  I am a fairly short woman (5\’4\”) and have breast that are on the larger size 36DD. I have been trying to figure out what to wear for my first tri coming up. I love the idea of the tri suits but I would have to wear added support under it. Is this something that is common for women on the larger side to do? It can get a little bulky at times.

Triathlon Event  Hi Madeline,
Thank you for contacting TriathaNewbie.com!

We’ve actually had many emails regarding this very same issue and we got a recommendation from a reader. See below:

Hi There!
Just wanted to comment on the bra situation for well endowed ladies! First off get a good bra — no anything they sell in sports stores or anything that has a trendy name — go to a bra shop and get a proper fitting. Get what is known as a “cone” bra (sounds very Madonna I know!) — but isolates each of the girls on their own side of things and keeps things stable. One great brand is “Lunaire” — I can do just about anything in that bra (even jumping jacks!) with no movement whatsoever! I used to hate exercise because I couldn’t find a good bra to support things — but finding the proper equipment made all the difference! Hope this helps!

We’re sure this will do the trick for beginner triathletes as well as seasoned triathletes!

Be well.
