Champion Zip Tech Sports Bra
not exactly uncomfortable...
I've never had any luck with the over-the-head sports bras (made by a competitor), and often required help getting it out of it once I returned home from the gym! Hence, I began looking for a front closure-type of sports bra. Perhaps it is the fact that I am a full-figured woman, but it is often difficult for me to zip up the bra--it can be very frustrating. My breasts feel very compressed once I can zip it, while all at the same time, I also feel like I'm wearing a push-up bra. Not long after I've been wearing the bra, it starts to feels uncomfortable--I think its all of that "squishing" of my chest, as well as a "pinching" sensation of the skin below my breasts. I referred to the sizing chart, so I didn't simply "guess" at the size bra I would need prior to making my purchase. This is definitely a well-made bra, so I would recommend it to anyone searching for such a garment.

My favorite sports bra!!
This bra is so easy to put on and take off. Also, very comfortable.
Once you start wearing this bra, you will never slip your others over your head again!! Wish they would put it on sale:)

Front zipper won't stay locked
I am a 34 B but need maximum support and bounceless workouts. The bra isn't adjustable, and it's a little big, but the zipper keeps opening up while I'm working out even if I try to lock it down.
I wouldn't buy this style again.

No interest in going back to 'over head' bra top
I originally purchased 2 of these 3 years ago when I was nursing my son (was a 34 C/D). (I wanted something with quick access.) Now, I am sold. I must have 20 of various other Champion bra tops, but I always reach for these even though I am no longer nursing. They are just so easy to use. The others were always tight to get over my breasts, especially when taking them off after a sweaty run. Granted, I do not do as much core running as I did before, but I do run in these, and they hold me just fine (back to a 34B).
I do wish they came in more colors. I would buy more.
As far as the zipper 'holding' up, I only recently broke one. The pull part broke off in my luggage on my last trip. I can still zip up the top though, and I will be more careful when packing it in the future.
