I'm only a C cup, but if you can get to one, Rigby and Peller have always impressed me with the advice they're able to offer.

By this time tomorrow night ,more than a few helful UKC mammary experts will have found a solution to your troubles.
My breasts are very small.often wonder why god bothered giving me them
There was a french report out this week that says bras are harmful.
As for boobs getting in the way - it is less of a problem on overhangs :-) It makes the occasional slabby/vertical move harder but in general you learn to work around it (them?)...
Hope that helps!
I am a little less well endowed than you, but still need serious support when running - less so when climbing. I think you really need to go and try them on because brands aren't consistent with sizing - I am a 30E in certain regular bras but a 32DD or even a 34 in sports bras, so you may need to go up a band size from normal. I have some Shock Absorber ones designed for tennis players, I think, that squish things down a lot. Some runners who have bigger boobage than me either wear two bras, one bra and a crop top, or a terrifying contraption from an American company called Enell (as in F' Enell they're big, perhaps?) who make something that looks hideous but is apparently effective.
Sports bras come in two types, or a hybrid: compression, which squash things down and together, and can create a uniboob, and encapsulation, which holds each one apart, so potentially more flattering but less flattening :)
Try Rigby and Peller, or Bravissimo. There is also http://www.lessbounce.com/ but I think if it wasn't a bra I was already familiar with, I would need to order a 3x3 matrix of cup and band sizes and send 8 of them back, which seems a bit extreme :(
Can't offer a personal recommendation (I just let my moobs hang free), My wife however, says that these are the best two for flattening (i.e. squishing not supporting):

Mine too; you can see my ribs through mine now! And yes, im a gurl :/

lol that made me chuckle :-)
My mrs = massive funbags + backache after days out = Bravissimo in Liverpool for a measure up, job sorted.
Few recommendations for Bravissimo now...
cheers me dears, and don't worry, more than a handful is just a waste ;-)
I'm just greedy thats all
Must find a boyfriend with very small hands then!(In another lifetime)
Im not at all worried! Im happy with the size they are.
Well done UKC :-))
(I only looked at it hoping for immature stupidity btw)
You and your mucky mind.
I'm most put out!!
Use your imagination (dont bother using too much of it). But if you can be bothered, think Victorias Secret model, 34C and 5ft10. Close enough :)
Sounds about perfect.
Do you have a page number for the Catalogue?
"Cheekies and Cheekinis" who'd have thought it, everyday's a school day.
It's quite some time since I looked and a lingerie catalogue, obviously things have changed somewhat!
Friend of mine has similar problems, will ask....
Panache sport, I'm told, will sink warships....
Thanks for your interest though.
Hahahahaha! Choked on my peppermint tea. Well done.
Make your own out of sheep dog fur
It will round them up and point them in the right direction
seen a woman on the hill yesterday.
she was doing a race.
I was standing(assisting) at the summit attempting to keep count of the runners(honest)and freezing my balls off.
Remember one girl in particular who was fairly generously proportioned in the boulder department.
Cant be fun contending with misbehaving and unruly bosoms.
