The sports bra I bought is pretty comfortable. The sports band is OK… but I wouldn’t purchase one again. Being big chested I feel better with a double bra. The support in choosing my bra was first class.’

‘Good range, good prices, quick postage. Thank you.’

‘Sports bras direct were fine to deal with. It was slightly annoying that the bra came on significant sale 2 days following my purchase. I would have delayed my purchase if I had of known, but I would also have purchased more. Unfortunately, I didn’t purchase the bra for myself, but for my daughter and she doesn’t like the bra at all. She says it cuts in to her shoulder blades, however the bra does perform as advertised for exercise.’

‘Great service. Good range of sport bras for larger ladies. Recommend.’

Peta Wakefield

‘The service and delivery was extremely fast. Great range of Bra’s for the larger sized women. One of the only places that i could get a great sports bra. Quantity available was a little disappointing, as i have recently started playing my sport again, so would have liked to have been able to purchase a couple of the same bra for the weekend and week long tournaments. Will just have to keep an eye out for when they become available.’

‘Great website with excellent size guide. My bra is gorgeous. I bought a size smaller than i should because there was no stock my size, but i look forward to fitting it soon 😁’

Determine Your Size With Our Bra Size Calculator

1. Underbust Size

2. Overbust Size

Measuring Your Underbust

Stand straight with your arms hanging casually by your side; if you can get a friend to measure you around your chest, directly under your bust.

Ideally, measure yourself while you are not wearing a bra, or if you are wearing one, be careful not to sit the tape over any part of your bra.  The tape should sit directly under your breasts (where your bra band would normally sit), should be horizontal all the way around and be as tight as possible without being uncomfortable (exactly like your bra’s underband).  This measurement is your Underbust.


Measuring Your Overbust

Still standing straight measure horizontally around the fullest part of your bust (usually over the nipples).  This is best done while you’re wearing a good fitting bra.  The tape should not be to tight resting lightly on your body. Make sure the tape is straight across your back and is parallel to the floor.  This measurement is your Overbust.

Finding Your Perfect Fit

Finding your correct Australian Bra Size is as easy as 1, 2, 3. One; follow the instructions below to find your underbust and overbust size. Two; slide the bars to your correct size position to discover your recommended size. Three; start shopping!

  1. Underbust Size; measure around your chest, directly below your bust. Read more below.
  2. Overbust size; measure around the fullest part of your breasts. Read more below.

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

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. Please check brand specific sizing below to establish the best size crop to suit you.

If you are still unsure on your size we would love to help you, please contact us to arrange your personal fitting appointment.
