Female boob chaffing? (Read 497 times)

    What Ennay said! Those pull-over bras are not good for those of us with larger cup sizes. You can try wearing two at once, but even then, the motion control is limited. Watch a video of yourself running if you don't believe me Big grin

     

    So yeah, Bodyglide for the chafing, but also consider investing in some good bras. I can recommend Moving Comfort as another brand that goes by actual band/cup size. I have the rebound racer one cup size smaller than my actual size, and it's perfect.


    Needs more cowbell!

      I've tried at least 5 different Moving Comfort bras and loathed them all (I'm not the only one who lacks to understand the MC love).  I have always had great luck with Champion.  This one has long been my go-to bra for high impact stuff (running, mountain biking).  And it comes in your size, OP! Big grin

      If you ask

        I used to swear by Champion (with underwire, hook back), until I tried the Moving Comfort Fiona. I never buy a pullover and  I always use Bodyglide for certain areas that tend chafe during long runs.   I would suggest going to a RunNing Store and speaking with a female.  I discovered MC by going to a ladies night event at my local running store.  Before then, I only went there to buy shoes.

        Good Luck!

          Okay, we men are obviously not going to get pictures, but that aside, I would like to thank everyone who typed "chafing" and not "chaffing".  Chaffing, if it were a word, would rhyme with laughing, and doesn't mean anything.  OP, it's obviously a typo in your headline, since you spell it correctly in the post.  Fix it for me, please?

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

            So you want her to "loose" the extra "f"? Smile

              My guess is any minute now she might loose that extra f  and the extra o in your direction

                  I get underboob chafing. Body glide helps... When I remember to use it. I was fine all winter; now it's getting warmer so I'm sweating more.

                   

                  This is me.  I haven't run in about 8 weeks now (broken ankle) and I have noticed that I have a permanent area of slightly discolored skin from how many times I have had chafing there that has healed.  Body Glide helps and quite often prevents it, but on a really sweaty day sometimes it isn't enough and I chafe anyway.  And then there are the times I forget the Body Glide.  Every type of bra I've ever tried has given me the underboob chafing.

                   

                  I've never had chafing inside the actual bra though, just around the edges.  I think that your bra probably isn't fitted right if your boobs are moving against the inside of the bra - mine are much too tight for that to happen.

                   

                  I always tell my husband that the one and only advantage to being forced to wear a sports bra is that I never have to worry about nipple chafing.

                  Am I doing this right?

                    This thread has certainly helped out with some fantastic side bar ads.

                     

                    Thanks!

                    No excuses....

                      Thanks girls.  Smile  I'm in Canada and our Zellers are slowly being turned into Targets, so I'll check out the Champions once our Targets open (I think they are supposed to in September).  If I get desperate enough I can go down to Buffalo.  Until then, I'll look around for some Moving Comfort ones. Smile   I can probably keep the newer old ones for my shorter runs, but seeing as I'm in half marathon mode right now I think my long runs will call for some new ones.

                       

                      And yes, the extra "f" is a typo is chafing.  I don't know how to edit my subject lines or I'd fix it.  However, LedLincoln better be careful or as Ennay said I might loose an "f" and "o" in his direction.  Wink

                          After much frustration with companies that don't ship to Canada (seriously, we're right next to you!), I finally ordered 2 Champion bras off of Amazon.
