These Sports Bras Flatten the Breast Without Leaving You Out of Breath

Looking for the best flattening sports bras? This article is for you.

Lesbians with huge boobs usually have a difficult time finding a fitting sports bra. Majority of the bras for large busts are not as tight as they would like in the boob area. On the other hand, T-shirt bras do not just hold things in place.

We’ve scoured the wen and talked with Autostraddle and Qwear readers to find the best flattening sports bras. Some of the bras are quite expensive. However, the high quality means that they will last. Your budget and preference should help you decide which sports bra to buy.

Ideally, you can try the bras in a store to see how they fit and then purchase them online. Alternatively, you can order them online and return if they don’t fit.

With that said, here are the best queer sports bras on the market.

Other Tips for Flattening Your Breasts

  • When you are looking for the best flattening bras, you probably don’t want to measure your breast size. Instead, go for a bra that is a size too small.
  • Some people recommend wearing two sports bras. However, this may not be the best idea. Wearing two sports bras does little to reduce side-to-side motion and bounce (which a good sports bra will do). On the same note, you may find it difficult to breathe since the bra will constrict your chest.
  • If you have a doctor that you can talk to, show him/her the bra and ask for their opinion.
  • If you find that the bra is too tight and making you feel uncomfortable, you can remove it. Perhaps carry a lose one that you can interchange with the flattening bra.
  • Ideally, you should not wear a tight bra for more than 10 hours a day.
