If you're interested in how to find out your bra size check out my 'How to Measure' page I wrote specifically for men.
My Male Model measured 40 inches under his bust and 44 inches across his chest. He was calculated to be a 40D/XL.
A Guy's Perspective:
Commentary from a guy while he's trying it on: I think this one looks good. It has kind of a neoprene feel, like a swimming suit? Might be good for swimming. I don't know how to get out of this, you're going to have to help me!
Support: 7 or 8 out 10: The support in this bra was good.
Comfort: 7 out of 10: The model said the bra was comfortable and there was no issue with shoulder straps.
Smoothness: 8 out of 10: This bra tied for 1st on our smoothness scale. It really disappeared under the shirt as you can see below.
Easiness to put on and take off: 4 out of 10: The model was able to get this bra on by himself, but when it came to taking it off he struggled! I've mentioned this on the other reviews, but guys aren't as flexible in the arms and shoulders as women are and so it was really difficult for him to lift the bra up and over his head. Surprisingly so. Just something to keep in mind.
This is a great bra. I do not hesitate recommending it to you. Chances are you're going to want to get the XL size, sorry it doesn't come any bigger.
Like my male model mentioned, this could be a great swimming bra to wear underneath a dark t-shirt (or alone if you're ubber confident ;).
Guys, this is a good sports bra to try!!
What if you need a sports bra larger than a XL?
I've gotten a lot of great response from guys regarding my sports bra pages. However, the number 1 question I get is, "I need a BIGGER sports bra than size XL, are there any sports bras out there for for guys that are XXL-4X?"
I've done a little research, and there are a few options to try.... (please excuse the female model, I haven't been able to take my own photographs)
Another one you should check out is the BestForm Cross Trainer Back Support Plus Size Sports Bra (or BCTBSPSSB for short -lol). It comes in sizes 42-48. You'll find your size by measuring your band size (around your ribcage underneath your bust)
If you measure 42-48 in your band size, this is a great option to check out. The downside is it's only available in white, so if you're looking for black or grey you're out of luck for the time being. (I would still try the white though)
It's available on herroom.com for $16
The Big Attitude 9555 Sports Bra - This isn't going to be a super supportive sports bra, but it will provide you with some support and protection against nipple chaffing. It comes in sizes XL-6X
The sizing chart on Amazon is garbage, but I went to Big Attitude's website and here's a chart showing what size to order...
Note: This is asking for your Bust Measurement, which is the measurement around your nipple line, (not your band size which goes around your ribcage)
I've read a few reviews that state it runs small, so that's something to keep in mind.
It's available on Amazon for $28-36
