Over the Shoulder Boulder: Best Sports Bras for Every Size

By  | 

I used to wear two sports bras when I went to a horse show; one wasn’t enough to support me through an 8+ hour day of riding and wearing two bras helped flatten my chest so I could actually button my shirt. Let’s be honest, most of us have probably experienced riding in a non-supportive bra – immediate regret sinks in as soon as you pick up the trot – your chest bouncing around like teenyboppers at a Taylor Swift concert. But whether you are a size A or DD, support is important, not only for our concentration, but our health and conformation as well.

From fuchsia to teal, sexy to frumpy – we have a plethora of options to choose from when it comes to sports bras (though it might be good to steer clear of the leopard print if wearing a white shirt).
