    There was a recent Dressage thread on this. Lots of discussion over there on this.

    I'm going to have to repeat the Enell love. It can be very tight - I need help putting mine on sometimes (but my boyfriend doesn't mind at all, naturally) - but I find the pressure comforting, as it now helps me breathe deeper/more regularly. Shock Absorber has some nice bras, but I don't like the construction of mine (seams on the shoulder dig into my skin).

    Enell says 32G here. I have video of my riding on my website you can watch for boob bounce. I'm always in an enell

    I'm another Enell wearer. (I actually layer mine with a regular bra. I don't know if it actually makes a difference but it makes me feel better)

    Title Nine (Bounce) has a bunch of bras available.... I have the Enell and the Three Reasons which is the Moving Comfort 'Fiona'.... both work great... Fiona is way, way, way more comfortable.

    Default Moving Comfort

    I am 36DD and I love Moving Comfort Bras. The Maia is my favorite because it does not give me uniboob! I used to have an Enell but I had the hardest time fastening all of the hooks!

    Ok, you Moving Comfort wearers...I have looked at those but haven't found a store to try them in. Do they offer the same level of bounce prevention as the Enells? (Be honest now, b/c I like that I do NOT move in the Enell ) MC's are sure better looking, but do they support as well?

    I wear a regular bra under my Ennell so that I don't have uniboob. I wish the E came with an underwire.

    Similar size, and I wear an Enell for competitions.

    But for everyday (don't change bras from work to riding) I wear the Shock Absorber N109, with a Target spandex camisole. Not as imobile as the Enell, but stable enough to be comfortable for extended sitting trot.

    I have not tried the Enell, but I'm pretty sure the Moving Comfort is not as bounceproof as the Enell is.

    I wear the Fiona for everyday. It definitely minimizes bounce - my girls sit the trot with me. Very comfortable for everyday wear, but yes they do give a uniboob. I saw them at Dicks the other day in lots of colors, too.

    I also have Maia for under show clothes so I have two instead of one. When you combine two boobs this size into one, it can frighten small children.

    I wear the Moving Comfort bras and they absolutely keep my 40DD girls from moving, no matter what. They are real workhorses (pun intended).

    My only complaint is that they are somewhat high cut. Not that I'm wearing very low-cut shirts to ride, but sometimes I feel as if the MC bra is weighing heavily right on my chest. It comes up almost to the bottom of my throat. I'm definitely pleased with them, though, but I'm going to look for something slightly lower cut.

    I should mention that I have the Jubralee style bra.
