Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Does its job!
I have a condition called EDS, which requires me to have additional support for posture in order to reduce upper back pain. My doctor recommended I get a "very supportive sports bra". I chose this one to try first. It is wonderful to wear, true to size (which was a huge surprise to me), and is very comfortable. It is also a bit difficult to get into! My husband thinks it's entertaining to watch me wiggle, squirm, poke and manipulate myself into the "bra hardware" as I am now calling it, but once it's on and he hooks the back for me, it's worth the fight! I have been able to hook it myself a couple of time, so there is hope. Machine wash and hang dry and it keeps its shape beautifully. Great for someone who is big busted, has back pain and needs additional support.

Pancakes no more!!
I love this bra -- lift, support, comfy. Your boobs look like boobs, not smashed! The only drawback is show-through -- I wish they made a "no show-through" version. Best sports bra I've found.

A Workout getting dressed
Unfortunately, I did look at all the photos before I purchased this item. Because of the racerback, it requires no small amount of flexibility and dexterity to put this thing on. While it is well made and, once on, provides excellent support, I'm not up for going through a work out just to get in to my undergarments. I will be returning this item.

Champion Poweback Underwire Sports bra
I have this type of bra for three years now. This bra has a wonderful fit, keeps everything together because it is tight, and it is great for fuller figures. However, the underwire part is very uncomfortable, and it has very little resistance as well. The underwire keeps breaking after a couple of months, and I am not sure why. I do not wear it excessively because it's a sports bra, and my guess is that it should be a little more resistant because of this. It is also a bit too hard to get the bra on and off because of the tight fit. Maybe the manufacturer could work on these problems? This is an expensive bra, and it would be a great purchase if there was no problem.
