Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Maximum Support Great Comfort
This purchase marks my 5 and 6 of this same athletic bra. It offers maximum support with great comfort. I found it to be fairly true to size, I actually ordered just a bit smaller size than normal. Needs to be snug as I am a runner. This bra is a great fit for a well endowed female who is very athletic - excellent support.
Recommend to hang dry but I have washed in the washer many times. This garment is durable. Underwire does tend to bend in the dryer,
Only one big negative - You have to put on over your head, If that bothers you, you will not like this one. Small negative - functionality is primary. Look is secondary. This is not a fashion bra but instead a very durable and supportive garment for an avid female athlete.
I highly recommend this one if you are active and need maximum support. I tried several before this one and now won't wear anything else.

difficult to get off
the support is great, the coverage is great however trying to take it off after working out was a workout in itself.
the hooks in the back really dont help because when you undo them it is still hard to get off.
if the bra could have had a better way to take off I would buy a dozen of them

'Best support I've ever had ....
This bra is excellent. I practice advanced Tae Kwon Do karate that involves a lot of jumping and upper body movement and while my C-cup isn't the problem the larger girls have, I still need all the support I can get. Champion has a good product here, well worth the money. It's well made, comfortable, shaped properly for my upper torso and perfect for me.

digs into my shoulders as the day goes on!
I am a 38DD-40DD and a PE teacher, so pretty active. The cup design is good for separation and the materials are nice. However, as the day goes on, the straps that criss-cross over my neck just DIG IN ... really uncomfortable!
