If you are one to work out on a regular basis, get a good pair of plus size sports bra. In fact, even if you don’t work out, wearing sports bra provides better support, coverage, and functionality and is a much better option to choose from in case you have two different cup sizes.
Always keep in mind that your size differs from your fit. Natural breasts are not all similar in size or have the perfect band size complementing the perfect cup size. You need to find the right fit, consider a pair of plus size bra that:
