‘I bought two bra’s for here, I was quite nervous, cause it’s an important thing that needs to fit. But once I consulted the online helper They gave me many different options, and talked me through everything I needed. The bras are brilliant!
I’m quite a curvy girl but wearing these bras I can run with everything contained, it makes me feel awesome too! I can do so many things with these bras 😊 (I’ve never bought a sports bra online or offline) they were perfect in customer service, delivery and result! Would definitely recommend and I will definitely be shopping here again in future✨’

‘Have always loved moving comfort Juno bras. This one arrived in great time considering COVID and fitted perfectly.’

Julie Catalini

‘I knew exactly which brand & size bra I wanted but couldn’t find it in physical shops. I was so happy to find it on an Aus website!! Got to support Aus businesses! Bras arrived very promptly with swing tags etc. They felt newer than if I’d bought them in a physical shop. I’m extremely satisfied and will be a repeat customer 😊’

Rachel Greenhill

Caitlin Cassidy

Catherine Lloyd-Johnsen

Sarah Baird

‘Best Bra I have ever brought. I have a large cup size and small underbust so it’s really hard to find the right bra hence having to look outside of NZ.’

Lizzie Jackson

‘Great quality products and customer service. Could not recommend these guys more highly.’

Deborah Kay

‘Super quick Postage, great product that does what it says. Happy customer.’

Lauren ElDocks

Emma W

‘Great initiative supporting women 100%. Postage fast, returns were reply paid, communication was helpful and friendly. Support this not for profit business!’

Natasha Driscoll

‘COVID 19 got me exercising at home, but without a sports bra. While most physical stores are closed trying to find a bra to save me from black eyes I feared was going to be really hard. Cue a quick google search and I found sportsbrasdirect – OH MY GOSH – how helpful is AMY.

I was dubious about the online chat but figured at this point I had nothing to loose. So after sharing my measurements and current bra sizes Amy found me a heap of bras that would likely fit the girls and have me exercising comfortably. From my personal preferences she advised on specifics of fit for each of the different brands.

I have now placed and order and with the ability to try these bras on in the comfort of my home and return what doesn’t fit or I don’t like I could not be happier. Thank you AMY.’

Lisa Scott

‘Very happy with my purchase. I chose these bras – Freya Active Sonic Underwired Spacer Bra 18/E and Anita Active Extreme Control Sports Bra 18/E – after reading through and looking at the features. I wanted support with wide sides and straps for exercising and every day wear after gaining quite a lot of weight (which I will lose!)
I needed comfortable bras as my others were cutting in terribly. These 2 are quite different styles but equally comfortable and they fit perfectly. I would purchase again and recommend. I’ve previously worn Brooks Maia Bra which I like but often limited availability of required size.’

Hilda A

‘Great selection of sports bras, including nursing bras. Customer service was really helpful in choosing the best options for me. Free and super easy to return the ones that didn’t work. Would definitely recommend!’

Cindy Shay

‘Prompt service and sizing was true.’

Carla Moulden

‘So happy to have stumbled upon Sport Bras Direct while looking for a new sports bra! Such a wide range along with great prices. I’m a larger sized cup and have always struggled to find sports bras that fit properly, and look nice, plus delivery to rural NZ was so fast! Very impressed with Amy’s customer service plus her mission for SBD is pretty awesome!’

Jodi Carroll

‘The bra is so comfortable the best sports bra I have ever owned!’

Malic X

‘I absolutely love my new sports bra. The service was very personal, efficient and helpful. I originally ordered the wrong size and was able to speak to Amy directly, who helped me out and organised the exchange. Very easy!’

Emma Jane

‘Great range of bras for larger cup sizes, great prices and fast shipping. And best of all, the profits go to women’s charities, which is really amazing!’

Emma Tonkin

‘I had a brilliant experience with Sports Bras Direct. I got 2 bras for cheaper than I could elsewhere, but one didn’t fit. Amy worked with me to find a great solution, and I was able to return the bra for no cost and exchange for something more suitable. Super prompt responses to email and fast postage. And all with profits to help women. What a brilliant initiative, thanks so much for your work guys!’

Kim Redford

‘Free delivery with a quality product at a good price. What’s not to love.’

S. A.

‘Honestly I am a hard customer to please!! But I was so beyond impressed with the customer service I received. They have a decent return policy with lots of time to decide whether the product is right for you. You get a discount off your first order as well as fast shipping. I decide to return my product ONLY because I am having a breast reduction and didn’t need the size I ordered.

The customer service I received from Amy was BEYOND 5 stars. She went above and beyond, responded promptly and every email was not generic – very personal. They generally care about supporting woman and not just creating business.

I tend to only write reviews when I have had a bad experience, but I couldn’t be more pleased to write this review. I highly recommend this brand and if you want some assistance don’t be afraid to reach out, they are so willing to help❤️’

‘Service was amazing. Will be shopping again with Sports Bras Direct.’

Toni Porch

‘This is a great bra. Very very comfortable and light and feels like your not even wearing a bra. I bought this bra for running so chafing and little to no movement were the focus when choosing a bra. It’s very breathable and cool. I had help from the lovely staff through online chat who advised me on a few options to choose from. I am very happy with my choice and will be looking to buy another one in black for yoga. What a great business Sports Bras Direct is. 👍 This is my 3rd purchase from them and their service is great. I highly recommend.’

‘I recently bought 3 maternity sports bras from here, because they have the free returns/exchange policy. 1 bra was the right size, 1 was a bit too big in the cup, and another want supportive enough. I contacted them about the 2 that I wanted to exchange and return, and they were great about it. I sent it back, got my refund for the unsupportive bra, and the smaller size of the other bra. They were lovely to deal with too.’

‘Superior customer service and quality products. The size I ordered didn’t fit and Amy was so accommodating and easily arranged the exchange of the products. I absolutely like that this is socially conscious business and there is a mission which drives it: 100% profits go to women’s charities. Please note that you can also donate your unwanted bras through Sportsbrasdirect. Email and you can get guidance on how to do that. Sometimes we buy more than we need or grow out of sizes quickly. Why not to donate these unwanted things? Go Sportsbrasdirect! You are truly wonderful people!’

‘I wrote to these guys with my specific requirements and problems in the past. They took the time to write me a detailed reply and give me a few but not too many options and demonstrated how each addressed my concerns. Just excellent! They have great promotions too, to I was able to get what I wanted, plus a couple of significant discounts. They have brands that other Australian retailers just don’t carry, that are much better than you will find at Myer or David Jones, or even the specialty stores in Sydney. And being an online retailer they can stock all the size options. I’m running with no bounce!’

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.
