Champion Powersleek&reg; Sports Bra
This bra is perfect for runner's who want no bounce. I love this bra, but there are some quality upgrades that Champion needs to make. The plastic strap connectors do break and they make me nervous sometimes that this may happen during a workout. I've only had one break so far, but one is enough to make you worry (they did replace the bra). It would also be nice if they offered this bra in more colors. Other than that, this bra is awesome and I'd highly recommend it.

great for me, not for everyone
I wear a 34D and love, love, love this bra. I ride horses and have to sit the trot a lot -- it is VERY bouncy -- and with this bra my breasts stay put. I am short so the adjustable straps are very nice. I also appreciate the regular back fastening because I cannot get into/out of racerback bras due to arthritis in my shoulders.
I can tell by the cut, though, that this bra will not work for everyone. Some women need an underwire, and this one doesn't have it. Also it probably works better for women with flattish (but large) breasts rather than ones that point straight out.
My only complaints are: that it does not come in a flesh or cream color, and that the rings that hold the straps to the cups are plastic. The bras wear so well (I machine wash in a lingerie bag and air dry them) that it's frustrating to lose a bra to a little piece of plastic breaking! I should say that this has not happened in a while, so maybe Champion has improved the plastic.

My very favorite
This is my favorite sports bra ever. I hope Champion never does
away with it. I run, and do high intensity training in it. I have a D cup (unfortunately) and this is the only sports bra that makes you looks nice like all the other beautiful ones for smaller sizes. Yes, I wish they kept the metal adjuster straps, but I only had an issue with that once. I haven't worn a real bra in 10 years, unless I have to wear a dress. I live in this sports bra, and I absolutely love, love,

The description says itâs for high impact. The support is poor
And a high impact bra should not be made with plastic connectors. They should be metal connectors for a better piece of mind.
The only thing good about this bra is the wicking fabric itâs made out of. It dries surprisingly fast.
