Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Great materials and construction, poor design
Maybe I'm missing something, but I found this to be a terrible design for a bra. Because of the racer-back style, the bra does not fully open in the back. That means you have to pull this very tight, very stiff structure over your head like a shirt. I also have a mild permanent injury in my shoulder, and there was no way I could bend my arms around my back to hook the 3 eyes. After a few minutes of hooking one or two or having them hooked to the wrong eye, I gave up--no time to deal with that nonsense in the morning! However, while it was on, even without the eyes hooked, I liked the support and the fabric. Getting it off back over the head was even worse--I had a scrape on the side of my face to prove it. So disappointed, because there are good qualities but it's totally impractical for anyone who's not a size 2 yogi.

Perfect bra for jogging
I was surprised by how well this bra supports. I am happy to find the support provided is congruent with the description. That has not been my experience in the past. Although it is firmer than what I need for my activities I am going to keep it not only because of the support but also because of the comfort.

Hands down the best bra EVER for support & comfort
This bra is the best I have ever worn! I have spent small fortunes to get a bra that would hold me up & still last for more than a week & this one DOES NOT DISAPPOINT! I pray that they never stop making this one! I don't know what I'd do without it!

As a fitness instructor, this is the best sports bra I own. The only reason I can't give it the full 5 stars is because of the little mesh insert that is attached in the corner where the strap meets the top of the cup--it has torn on every one of these bras that I've owned (and I've owned at least 5 in the past couple years) because of the way you have to pull the bra on over your head and then pull the straps up over your shoulders. Thankfully, the bra's performance isn't hindered in any way when the mesh piece tears, it just looks bad.
