Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Fits like it was made for me
I have problems being very sensitive to bras pinching. Most sports bras go right under my armpit, pinching and irritating, but this one gives plenty of room. I'm a fairly hard size to find (32C), but this bra fits snug against my ribs like it's supposed to, supporting the weight of my breasts on my chest, NOT by hanging from my shoulders, which is a huge relief. It stays put and doesn't move much at all. The shoulder straps are soft without bunchy seams to dig in, and the back clasp is padded just right as to be virtually undetectable. I subtracted one star for the right underwire having a tendency to dig in, but as it's just that one and not both, I'm thinking maybe my bra is a bit misshapen or I don't have the fit just right. All in all, I LOVE this bra.

Runs small difficult to put in on and take it off. It would have been better if it had front or back opening.

Maximum Support Great Comfort
This purchase marks my 5 and 6 of this same athletic bra. It offers maximum support with great comfort. I found it to be fairly true to size, I actually ordered just a bit smaller size than normal. Needs to be snug as I am a runner. This bra is a great fit for a well endowed female who is very athletic - excellent support.
Recommend to hang dry but I have washed in the washer many times. This garment is durable. Underwire does tend to bend in the dryer,
Only one big negative - You have to put on over your head, If that bothers you, you will not like this one. Small negative - functionality is primary. Look is secondary. This is not a fashion bra but instead a very durable and supportive garment for an avid female athlete.
I highly recommend this one if you are active and need maximum support. I tried several before this one and now won't wear anything else.

difficult to get off
the support is great, the coverage is great however trying to take it off after working out was a workout in itself.
the hooks in the back really dont help because when you undo them it is still hard to get off.
if the bra could have had a better way to take off I would buy a dozen of them
