Champion&reg; Shape Too! Underwire Sports Bra
runs small, good support
I normally wear a 36DD and ordered that size. I struggled to hook it on the last hook - the band was way too tight. The cups were also just a little small. I plan to order the 38DD and hope that the cup size increases just slightly as well, since this bra isn't available in DDD. I can tell the support is what I need for high impact activities, though, so if you can get the correct size I think you'll be pleased. The fabric and fit seem to be comfortable, and there's just enough coverage (not too much cleavage, but also low enough to wear with a tank top).
I currently wear the Champion Distance Underwire for everyday and low/medium impact activities - I love it and it's the most comfortable bra I've ever owned, but just not supportive enough for running. I have tried every other sports bra available in DD cup sizes, and so far nothing else fits me right.

worth the wait
I wished I had purchased several of these while they were on sale. I found it true to size. And the straps adjust enough - usually a problem with me . I am a 36DD and this fit perfect. The support is rated high - but actually to me is at the max. I can run, do aerobics whatever in this bra. Definitely will be watching for a sale so I can stock up. Finally a bra that is easy to put on, adjustable, comfortable and gives the girls the support they need.

Love this bra. After taking my measurements I should have gotten a 38, however with the 3 hook options in the back the 38 on the tightest hook wasn't quite enough. The 36 on the loosest hook was perfect. Just remember if you go down a band size you need to go up a cup (and the other way around). Which puts me at a 36DD. It fit perfect! The support is the the best of any sports bra I've ever tried and extremely comfortable. I don't feel like I can't wait to get it off when I'm done working out. Also, you don't have to try and pull this on over your head, which is really nice when you're a little bigger up front. I am a nursing mother and will defiantly get another one of these when my body stops changing so much. Bottom line: if you get the right size, this bra is incredibly supportive, comfortable, and breathes nicely. Champion got it right with this one!

Bigger Size Please
I was so excited to try on the new bra I received.....unfortunately it was way too small and I struggled to get it on. The other Champion sports bras I've worn were 38DD and they all fit very well. I'm planning to try a 40DD - really hope that one is big enough!!
