Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
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.

Large Busted Women - this bra is a must
I love this bra! I am actually a 38G and finding a sports bra with enough support is next to impossible. This one only goes up to a DD but I get in it. I wear two at a time so at first it can be hard to breathe and getting it on is a pain but it is the only way that I can run!! Highly recommend.

Best sports bra I have ever owned!
I have been wearing this bra for at least 2 years. I work out every day. Needless to say they get alot of use and alot of washing. I buy two at a time and only have to replace every 9-12 months. You won't be disappointed. I would note although there are hook and eye in back you must put on over your head, but the fit and support make it worth while. The fit and appearance is so great you can wear under almost anything. The Power Back breaks the mold on traditional sports bras. I hope this style never gets discountinued!

Very difficult to put on
I love this bra once it is on, but putting it on is a challenge. I wear a D cup, so getting it over my breasts actually hurts. I only wear it when I will be active most of the day. I have different bras for daily work-outs that go on like a traditional bra. It would be easier if they added some stretch to the straps, but they don't stretch at all so it is tough to maneuver over my head and in place.
