Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Worth the struggle of putting it on!
I agree that this bra is a BEAST to get in and out of the first few times you wear it, but it's TOTALLY worth it! I'm a size 42DD, so I can use all the support I can get at the gym. It so nice to workout without the constant worry of my front junk doing a crazy and inappropriate workout of its own! The back is really comfortable with no straps impeding your shoulders giving you free range of motion. This bra does run a little snug not just by design, so I think ordering up a cup size is a choice you would likely not regret. Unfortunately my size is the largest they offer in this style, but I'm willing to be a little more confined for all the other benefits this bra offers!

Awesome sports bra!
As far as sports bras for large chested women go, this is the BEST I have found! I first got the size that "normally" wear in regular bras. It was a good fit, but the cup felt just a tad small. I ordered a second one in a cup size bigger and the fit is wonderful. It is very comfortable and keeps the girls exactly in place during the most active of activities. I did find they required a "breaking in" period. Putting them on straight from the package was a little less comfortable, but after wearing it for about 30-60 minutes it felt great.

Keeps on supporting!
I am a 36DD and I have worn this bra for over a year and a half. It provides great shape and continues to support even near the end of a workout. I did have to figure out how to adjust the straps to get it to support an entire 90 min ballet class. The straps have to be a little tight at the beginning, but do loosen slightly as it wicks away the sweat. The three bras that I have are over a year old and the plastic pieces are fine. In fact all three bras are still in great shape and are worn and washed weekly (sometimes twice a week); however, I have never put the bras in the dryer or used fabric softener on them. I just bought 4 more so that I don't have to wash all the time. No bra will remove all of the gravitational pull that happens with a jumping motion; however, these are the best sports bras I have ever worn.

Great fit & support
I received it yesterday and just wore it for the first time today. I got my size just right. I am kinda big (42D) so it was somewhat hard getting it on. But once I got it on, it felt great. It didn't even feel like I had a bra on and my breasts were well supported. Also, it made them look smaller and smooth against my shirt, not sticking out.
