Hi Everyone, do any of you wear a sports bra to work out in? I am having trouble finding a comfortable one and wondered what you wore and if you would consider it to be comfortable enough to wear all day. My friends say you have to get used to them but I just find that hard to believe with all the various types of sports bras out there.

I have tried various types and my favs are inexpensive Hane's sports bras. However, I don't need a lot of support so I can get away with most anything. 

I do find that if my bra does not fit properly I get itching and chaffinga and bra rides up constantly so it is probably important to make sure you have the correct size.

What problems do have--fit, chafing?  I wear all types, from inexpensive C9 ones from Target to expensive running bras and haven't had many issues. On super long runs, I do get occasional chafing and bodyglide helps with that.  What styles have you tried and what do you need from them (extreme support, etc.)?
