Rated 2 out of 5Â by Helpmefindsupport I wanted to be thrilled!
I was excited for this bra! I often wear two sports bras and this seemed like the solution. However, it is tiny, I spill out of the sides although the cup area is large for a D (too much material there, coupled with not enough on the sides and it creates a perky uni-boob effect.) And, it is almost impossible for one person to put on by themselves. I slipped it on and did some inside out and backwards trick, but it is much easier if you have someone there to clasp and tighten the straps since the straps need to be loose at first otherwise you cannot get it over your head. I wore it for a 5K and it was ok, but I have had better support. I will keep it since it is my only racerback, but If only they could make the side coverage better and adjust the way you put it on (not a pull over), I really think it could be a good bra since it does provide the cleavage coverage that many sports bras do not.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LeslieB Better for me than the Moving Comfort Fiona Bra
I just finished my first run in this bra. I love it. I used to wear the Moving Comfort Fiona bra (36DD) which I loved for its durability, however, it seemed to just smash me. I tried this in a 36DDD and love the fit. There was no spillover and there was very little movement while I was running. The straps were very comfortable. I have no idea how anyone would be able to wear this with the straps crossed without the help of another person. I do worry about its durability with just the mesh in the back. I also wish they have solid colors as well.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CurvyMom Not perfect, but best I have found so far.
I like to run and participate in high intensity workouts. This has meant either wearing multiple bras or wearing bras with straps, snaps, velcro, zippers, buckles, you name it. Comfort AND support have never been included in the same description for a sports bra. After spending a ton of money on brands like Moving Comfort (yeah, comfort, right), Worcol, Nike, and other Champion bras, I was still disappointed. I found the All-out Support at an outlet store and figured I may as well give them a try. I bought two.
I did have to stick with the DDD. I usually buy a cup smaller for extra smashage and support. I found that The 36DDD covered and supported me just fine. The band was a bit tight, though, but given the mesh, I counted on it stretching out, and it did after about 2 uses. Crossing the bands, so I could wear racer-back tanks was near impossible the first few times. I either had to be a contortionist or get help. The shoulder straps aren't near long enough for solo dressing. BUT, like the band, those straps did loosen and I am now able to put it on without help. I do have to reach in the cups and pull my breasts into proper place when doing so.
The Pros: - Better support than anything else I have used
-More comfortable than anything else I have found
- price isn't out-of-this-world, meaning you can buy two
The Cons: -requires an initial "break-in" period
-because it can be broke-in, it means it will stretch out quickly and need replacing sooner.
- cup material is thin enough that the whole world will know if you are cold.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by EnergeticPerformer The fit did not measure up
I might have received a duffer. I was so excited about ordering this bra. I am a lead singer in a band and wanted something that would cut down the unsightly/distracting bounce when performing on stage, I was delighted that I might have found a solution with Champion.
I ordered a 38 DDD (my size according to the measurement charts) but when it arrived disappointingly it was about six inches too short of fitting me. My friend who is a 32 D tried it on and it fit her pretty well. She liked it so much she kept it :-) So no criticism of the design - I still really want one, but one that realistically fits a non-athletic figure as advertised.
