Sports Bras Direct: Women Supporting Women.

Our Mission:

Our Vision:

To be Australia’s best socially conscious business; a business that will inspire all businesses to think not just ‘Profit’ but to give a ‘Purpose’ to that profit.  When we achieve our vision let us all imagine what could be achieved.

Why You Need a Sports Bra

Did you know that without support the breast can move up to 14cm during exercise?  Wow!  A well fitted sports bra can reduce this movement by up to 90%.  Fantastic!  Amazingly approximately 44% of women don’t wear a sports bra during activity.  That’s a lot of jiggle!  We aim to change this and ensure every woman is receiving the support she needs to prevent pain and discomfort whilst exercising, as well as preventing damage to your breast ligaments which can cause irreversible sagging.  Boo!  The right sports bra can also help prevent long-term injuries and strains to the shoulders and back, keeping you in the action.

The Problem

Have you ever gone Sports Bra shopping and come home disheartened and disillusioned with the lack of assistance, knowledge and range, especially if you are a bit more endowed!  You are not alone.  We’ve experienced the same frustration.  Many retailers sell only their own brands or otherwise stores do have a range of brands, but limited sizes.  Add to this a general lack of sports bra knowledge, the 20 something lad in the sports store walks past with his eyes down….. Frustrating!  If you live in regional Australia…..please help!  Combine this with children and work and sports bra shopping can be very hard indeed.

The Solution

As Australia’s largest Sports Bra specific website we have the knowledge, we have the range and most importantly we offer the assistance.  Worried about buying a Sports Bra online?  Don’t be.  We have built a very user friendly website packed with everything you need to know to source your perfect Sports Bra.  Still not sure contact us for a chat!  All this from the comfort of your own home or workplace (just get your bosses permission!) at a time that suits you…..with free delivery and free returns Australia wide sports bra shopping just got easy!

Getting Around

To enjoy the best shopping experience first head to our Fitting Room to Determine Your Size.  It is a misconception that the back size of your bra is the same as your standard dress size; many women find they need a larger back size so it is definitely worth checking this out first.  You will also find heaps of other information to help you make the choice that best suits you.  Once you know your size shopping for your perfect sports bra is easy.

Brands

We stock over twenty brands so we are sure there will be something for you.  If you know the brand you are after simply head to our Brands page for it or one of the many other great brands we offer.  From the well known Australian staples like Berlei & Triumph to international sports bra specialists like Shock Absorber you will find the brand you are looking for (if you don’t simply contact us and we will try to help).

Activity

The sport you do will greatly dictate the type of sports bra you need.  If you take on the high impact world of Aerobics you have different requirements from your sports bra than someone who enjoys the more sedate pace of Walking.  Sports bras are made for many different activities so to find the sports bra that best suits you and what you do check out our Activity page for every activity from the low impact world of Pilates or Yoga to the high impact world of Running.  You will find that many sports bras suit a great many sports so it is simply a matter of exploring and finding the one that best suits you and what you do.

Type

Not sure on exactly what activity you will be using your sports bra for or simply have other requirements from your sports bra then take a look at our Type page.  Here you can search by your sports bras specific feature.  Whether it is the impact level that is important to you or you prefer Underwired or Wirefree sports bras this is the place to start.  We also understand that if you have a bit more up top or may not fit the dreaded ‘standard sizing’ finding the right sports bra can be a very frustrating experience.  This is why we have created specific Fuller Busted and Plus Size categories just for you to make your quest for that perfect sports bra that little bit easier.

Speciality

Not all sports bras are created equal.  If you are younger, pregnant or have had surgery your requirements from a sports bra may differ and you may need a specialist item. Our Specialty page is the place to start if you have special requirements in a sports bra.  You’ll find Maternity sports bras with easy breastfeeding access designs, Mastectomy sports bras for those wishing to live an active life post surgery and even Breastbands to wear with your sports bra for all round total support.

Apparel

We are a specialist sports bra website but also appreciate that a good sports bra is only one piece of your workout wardrobe puzzle.  As such we have a range of Apparel to complete your look allowing you to get active in style. You’ll find Tanks, Tights and much more.

Blog

Buying the perfect sports bra is not an easy task and making sure it fits perfectly is even harder. We believe education is the key in your quest for your perfect sports bra. As such we have an informative and educational Blog on all things sports bras (as well as the occasional other topic) to arm you with the knowledge you need to get active with the perfect combination of comfort and support.

To measure your size it is best to wear an everyday well-fitting non-padded bra and use a fabric / flexible tape to measure in centimetres.

To help you further, brand specific size guidelines have been added to the product images of some of our sports bras.  Please also check these before ordering.

Back Size – Underbust measurement

Your bra back size is determined by your under bust measurement.  Place tape
measure around your body, underneath the bust, in line with the bottom of your bra’s hook & eye.  The tape should be taught but not uncomfortable.

Cup Size – Overbust measurement

Place the tape measure loosely over the fullest part of your breasts (usually over the nipple). This is best done when wearing a bra.  Ensure the tape measure is at the same height across your back as across your bust.

Your back size can be different to your clothing size as it relates to the width of your back and diaphragm.  A lady may wear size 12 clothes and a size 14C bra.

Now look at the Bra Fitting Chart below.  First find your underbust measurement (Back Size) in the left hand column, round up to the nearest cm if required.  Then find the corresponding Australian/NZ size in the grey column.  This determines your back size.

Once you have your back size, follow the row along until you find your cupsize measurement, again round up to the nearest cm if required.  This will determine your cup size.

Crop Tops

Crop tops can fit differently to cupped bras.  Generally speaking they are more similar to women’s clothing sizes.

XS = 8    S = 10   M = 12   L = 14   XL = 16    XXL = 18

However the correct size can be more accurately determined using your under bust and over bust measurements in the table below.  To understand how to take these measurements please see the explanation above.

Sports Bras Direct recommends crop tops for cup sizes A-D only. You must also check the specific style of crop top suits the level of impact you require.  Breasts that are bigger than a D cup require more specific support from a cup size sports bra.

Each Brand has a slight variation in their actual measurement guidelines for crop tops, so we have summarised the individual Brand’s advice in the table below.
