Champion Double Dry&reg;+ Spot Comfort&reg; Full-Support Sports Bra
Great Performance, Poor Clips
I have bought many sports bras from Champion (34C, but do a lot of trail running and horseback riding) so definitely know what I like and don't like. I LOVE my Powersleeks and so have 3 pairs of them, but when it looked like I would be riding 5-6 days/week this summer, I bought two of these bras in June. I read the reviews- everyone seemed to like them- so I ordered 2. The performance of the spot comfort technology is very good- I don't get quite as... moist.. while working outside most of the day, which was a slight problem with the Powersleek. As to the durability of the product, they may be lacking.
One of them lasted exactly 1 week before the clip in back holding the bra strap together snapped, and is now unusable, waiting to be returned. The other is still going strong, but that clip breaking has put a serious dent in my trust in the other one- can you imagine having half your bra fall apart while on top of a 1200 lb animal pounding around a jump course? Not pretty, I'm sure.

I absolute love this bra. I am a 38DDD thanks to nursing and I love the fact that it doesn't have underwire, yet it provides more support than an overhead/racerback bra that I have tried. And I have tried on DOZENS of bras. I was finally able to keep up with Jillian because I wasn't having to hold down my chest (no joke, I had to do that before this bra.)
I am not sure about the quality because it hasn't been washed too much, but honestly I would buy it again if it broke. I almost gave up hope in ever finding a sports bra that fits properly, is functional, AND comfortable. If I weren't nursing, I would wear this bra every day for normal use.
And I almost never write reviews for products, but with this bra I feel like all the one star ratings are bogus so I have to encourage you if you are doubting to try this bra!

This bra is super comfortable, and I'm amazed by how much support it provides without any harness/wire/corsetting. I can even jump rope in it! I wouldn't go running in it, but I can do just about anything else in it: dance, horseback ride, jump, etc. And as I said, it's incredibly comfy, and I could wear it all day. I'm not in love with the shape it gives me under clothes (a little smooshed), but it's good enough, cuz at least there's no uni-boob. Overall, so worth it. I find the quality excellent, and I've had mine for about a year now. (btw I wash it in cold and I never put my bras in the dryer. I'm a 34ddd but I a 36dd does me fine in this.)

Great bra. Comfortable. I only wish that it came in a light taupe color. I would order several more.
