Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Yes, difficult to get on until you know how
I purchased this bra several months ago because I was looking for a very supportive bra to work out in. Between the jogging, the yoga, and the resistance training, I don't want to have to worry about my girls falling out all the time or bouncing around. This bra solves that problem. When I first purchased the bra, I DID have some difficulty with it. I found through trial and error what works best for me is to slip it on over the head and just reach behind me to close the hook and eye closures. Taking it off can be a little difficult at first too, because you have to pull it up over your head again, and if you are sweaty it can be difficult to pull off. I think overall this bra design isn't my favorite, but it DOES offer a lot of support. I actually ended up purchasing 2 in each color, and occasionally I wear them under t-shirts during the day just because the bra holds me so well and it is so comfortable. If you feel you may struggle with putting this bra on, or if you have a compromised shoulder for any reason, I would skip this bra and go to a regular bra that would be easier to put on.

This is the MOST DIFFICULT sports bra to put on.
Women with D - DD size breasts be warned because this sports bra is very hard to get on. I like the feel of fabric and fit once I finally could figure out how to get it on. The straps have no give so is really a pain...literally. I had to make sure I had it hooked before putting over my head. I will keep but will not order this style again because it is so hard to get on. I would be really surprised if a women designed this bra. Really could be a great bra if it was easier to put on.

Very difficult to put on
I love this bra once it is on, but putting it on is a challenge. I wear a D cup, so getting it over my breasts actually hurts. I only wear it when I will be active most of the day. I have different bras for daily work-outs that go on like a traditional bra. It would be easier if they added some stretch to the straps, but they don't stretch at all so it is tough to maneuver over my head and in place.

I love it!
I have had mine for a couple of years now. Its great. It really is not that hard to get into. Just put it over your head like a t-shirt then snap it closed. Anyway, it holds the girls in nicely. I am a DD and can run without getting knocked out
