Champion Double Dry&reg; Dazzle Seamless Sports Bra
Great sports bra!
I'm really surprised at the negative reviews. Like any sports bra, you must find the right one for you. They are not one size fits all. I am a 30D, and I have bought these bras for 5 years. I own or have owned about 10 of them! I am a triathlete, so I swim, bike, and run in this bra. I run marathons, so I do a lot of running, and I hate ANY bounce. This bra keeps me from bouncing at all. I've never noticed that it's see-through, BUT most of mine are dark colored and I always wear a top over them, so it really doesn't matter to me. Yes, it is going to squish you a bit, but I've had worse. It is a sports bra, after all. There are some that separate and support better, but they usually have cotton in them, which does NOT dry fast. What I like best about this sports bra is that it dries quickly, which is so important in triathlons when you swim, bike, and run in the same clothes! I will say that the sizing chart shows I need a small (30D is the same cup size as 32C or 34B), but the small did not stay down right, especially with my HRM strap. The mediums fit great, though! I wash in a front loading washer and dry in the dryer, and they are still in great shape! You have to look at Champion's MCR Ratings & Bra Support Chart to really see the support you will get. High support doesn't mean it will give EVERYONE high support. Cup size doesn't always tell you this, as 30D isn't very big, but it also isn't flat -- I usually size up for sports bras because manufacturers don't seem to get that when doing their sizing (I am an odd size, though - small frame, but not flat-chested). If you are large-chested, you need to look for a Max Support bra. If you are really big, you'll have to look at other brands to get the support you need. More than likely, you will have to go with a sports bra that is not a racer back style. I would say that this bra is probably best for small to medium-chested women unless you are just cycling or doing yoga or other activities without bounce, but it is only a High Support bra, not a Max Support Bra.

Hurt my shoulders
I have a hard time finding sports bras that fit my large chest. This one has no underwire so my skin smushes together and I don't like it. Also, the straps cross high on the back and close to the neck making my shoulders very tired.

For a high support bra, I would say it provides only medium to low support. Also, the fabric is thin and therefore see-through. Not a fan...

NOT HIGH support
This was a quality made garment, but I would not recommend it for anyone larger than a B cup...maybe a C if you were using it for something like a yoga class. I bought the appropriate size according to the chart.. the actual cup size was too tight but the band was too lose. It did not fill my needs in anyway and I returned it.
