Champion Double Dry Distance&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Comfortable fabric, but...
The fabric on this bra is extremely soft and comfortable, and it does a fairly good job of wicking. However, what I didn't realize when I purchased it is that the straps are not adjustable. I bought this bra because I've had no luck with others, as I don't like the uni look. This bra does a fairly good job of separating, so the uni look is avoided. However, the top end of the underwire was quite pokey, and the entire underwire was definitely felt and was uncomfortable. I couldn't wait to take this bra off. Support was ok but would be better if the straps were adjustable. I also needed to wear a band-aid on my back in the area of the clasps because something on the bra...perhaps the bulky clasp seams...were scratching me. The Band-Aid kept it from scratching. Because of the pokey underwire and scratchy back, I'm returning this to the store. If Champion would revolutionize this bra and make it with adjustable straps and no underwire, I'd finally find a sports bra that works for me.

Not for long distance running Great for everyday
I have several of these bra's in black. I run 5 miles or more every other day & wear a 34DD. It is not quite supportive enough for me to wear running but I do use it for working out on the elliptical etc... I wear the Champion Powerback bra for running (which I have also reviewed on this site#. I will say that this is also a very durable bra. I have had the same one for over 3 years & it is finally starting to look ragged after wearing it almost 4 days a week for 3 years! It is also a very good bra for everyday and is PERFECT for wearing under a shirt that shows a little too much cleavage. It comes up high enough in the front cleavage area that it doubles as camisole for plunge type tops! I also find it very comfortable to wear at night #I slept in my bra's as well).

I use this as an everyday bra about 4 times a week. I love the fit, feel and comfort. I have the spillage under my arm and since the bra has such a large band I no longer have the spillage. That was the whole reason for me buying this. Only negative is that I wish it separated the sistersjust a bit more. No one likes a uniboob
