Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
great support, works for every day
I'm a 40C and found this bra both extremely supportive and comfortable for every day. It even helps alleviate my upper back pain, and the band and shoulder straps stay solidly in place. The only downsides I've experienced are that the straps are so close to the neck it limits the neckline styles in can be worn with, and when putting it on it's difficult to fasten the clasp in back. (I haven't experienced the difficulties taking it off others have.) All in all, though, I'm very happy I found this bra.

hard to get on
This item was hard to get on because it seemed to run small and you can't unhook it all the way from the back or front. It was a very tight fit to have to pull over your head.

Yes, difficult to get on until you know how
I purchased this bra several months ago because I was looking for a very supportive bra to work out in. Between the jogging, the yoga, and the resistance training, I don't want to have to worry about my girls falling out all the time or bouncing around. This bra solves that problem. When I first purchased the bra, I DID have some difficulty with it. I found through trial and error what works best for me is to slip it on over the head and just reach behind me to close the hook and eye closures. Taking it off can be a little difficult at first too, because you have to pull it up over your head again, and if you are sweaty it can be difficult to pull off. I think overall this bra design isn't my favorite, but it DOES offer a lot of support. I actually ended up purchasing 2 in each color, and occasionally I wear them under t-shirts during the day just because the bra holds me so well and it is so comfortable. If you feel you may struggle with putting this bra on, or if you have a compromised shoulder for any reason, I would skip this bra and go to a regular bra that would be easier to put on.

This is the MOST DIFFICULT sports bra to put on.
Women with D - DD size breasts be warned because this sports bra is very hard to get on. I like the feel of fabric and fit once I finally could figure out how to get it on. The straps have no give so is really a pain...literally. I had to make sure I had it hooked before putting over my head. I will keep but will not order this style again because it is so hard to get on. I would be really surprised if a women designed this bra. Really could be a great bra if it was easier to put on.
