- Question for the ladies if you can help please…
Definitely time for this site!Posted 8 years ago
Last pair of trainers I bought for jogging came from Sweatshop and they do bras and clothing too. They can do foot and gait analysis and even let me take the shoes out for a test run though whether they can offer the same service for bras is unknown to me. There is a store in Woking near the station – http://www.sweatshop.co.uk/storefinder.cfm?shop_ID=18Posted 8 years agoLoulaBellaMember
John Lewis have a great fitting service and can recommend you some sports bras. Also if you are looking for a bargain, TK Maxx is where I get my sports bra tops for cycling from. Its a top but with the bra built in so its much more comfortable than a tight bra and then another layer over that.
This is from fitness sports storePosted 8 years agotinker-belleMember
A second vote for M&S and John Lewis, but don't get a bra at the first fitting, do a fitting at both and then see how you feel about each of the options.
M&S can vary greatly in their offering, and will try and sell a slightly bigger bra if they don't have your size in stock.
Remember once you have the bra on to do a full range of streaches to ensure the bra doesn't ride up or move about too much, and always jump up and down on the spot to make sure it is giving the right support.
Depending on how erm "big" she is she may find a halter neck more comfortable than a tradtional front/back fastening bra

..or anyone else who really needs to contribute.
Mrsjova has decided to take up running to keep fit.
She doesn't need advice on shoes, diet, regime etc as my brother is taking care of that.
What she needs is details of shops/suppliers of sports bras, to hold everything in place.
We're in Guildford, so anywhere within a reasonable driving radius, if anyone knows of a shop with a goood variety of product and knowlegable/helpful staff.

I have had a few shock absorber bras and recently I've binned the new ones as they rub. I ended up getting mine from sweaty betty on line they come in some nice fluro pink as well! They are a little more expensive, but they retain their shape really well, wash very well and are super suportive… however I think they may only be so good for the slightly smaller lady!!!
http://www.sheactive.co.uk is great for buying stuff on line and getting returns back easily and for a full refund.Posted 8 years agoebygommMember
plus – if she starts loosing weight i'm afraid that this is where she will loose it first so maybe buy one and then wait a bit before she buys another!
Not strictly true, it's a bit of a sods law thing. If you want them to get smaller they're the last place you lose weight, if you don't they're the first!Posted 8 years agolangyMember
Another vote for She Active – my wife used to get a bunch of stuff for various sports from them when were in London and worked in/around Covent Garden.
Got talking to one of the girls in there too about ski gear – she really did seem to know her stuff (I lived in that industry so was able to judge) and not just what the reps rattle off; if the staff are still of that calibre, she won't get fobbed off I'd have thought.Posted 8 years ago
Cheers all for the recommendations.
Mrsjova works in Woking so a trip to Sweatshop seems a good idea next week.
I knew Debenhams had a new 'sports section' but I thought it would probably be all pikey stuff. I'll get her to have a look in there as well.
Hadn't thought about La Senza but if they do Sloggi kit then could also be worth a visit.
I wish she'd stuck to riding bikes and things I know about. As a man my knowledge of bras is very limited.

A friend of mine runs a specialist site (yes it has got pictures if you are desperate):
They are dedicated to getting the right support for your needs. Mostly it is for the ladies, but there is a small section on male support. Salaine is very helpful, or one of the staff, if you want to discuss what you want.Posted 8 years ago
