Sports Bras Direct: Supporting Active Women.

Our Mission: To help every woman find her perfect Sports Bra.

The Problem:

Did you know that without support the breast can move up to 14cm during exercise? Wow! A well fitted sports bra can reduce this by up to 80%. Fantastic! However, amazingly as many as 44% of women don’t wear a sports bra during activity. That’s a lot of jiggle! We want to change this and ensure that 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. The right sports bra can also help prevent long-term injuries and strains to the shoulders and back, keeping you in the action.  An essential piece of kit for every active woman.

Have you ever gone Sports Bra shopping only to 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 had the same frustration. Many retailers sell only their own brands so your choice is very limited.  Some stores do have multiple brands, just not your size. Add to this a general lack of sports bra knowledge, the 20 something lad working in the sports store walks past with his eyes down, frustrating! If you live in rural Australia…..we understand your shopping pains! Combine this with children and work and sports bra shopping can be very hard indeed.

How we can help:

As Australia’s largest Sports Bra retailer we have the knowledge, we have the range and most importantly we offer the expert 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. 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 shipping and returns Australia wide sports bra shopping just got easy!

To enjoy the best shopping experience we recommend you 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.

We recognise that every woman is unique in terms of both breast shape and what they want from their bra and so it is really important to us to provide you with great choice, information and advice.  Check out our Maternity and Mastectomy range and sports bras suiting larger ladies or specific activities. We continually update our website so check back frequently to see what’s new. Join our newsletter for helpful information and special offers. Also follow us on Social Media for all the goss!

We hope you love shopping with us.

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.
