Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
only sports bra i'll ever buy
Seriously, don't be fooled by the pictures of the girl in the white one. This is one of the ugliest bras I have ever seen yet it is what you need if you have a B cup on a small frame or a C cup and above. I'm a 38D and this bra is the absolute best! I wouldn't say that it's particularly comfy because you're very harnessed in it and it is amazingly supportive because of it. The band is wide and doesn't even completely open; when the clasps unhook, it just opens the band a little bit. (see the picture for what I'm talking about). I couldn't get the clasps hooked while it's on so I just pull it on with the clasps closed; I also don't have ten minutes to sit around fumbling with it. It's pretty hard to get into, to be honest, especially since I never clasp my bra behind my back. However, I can't rave enough about how there's no breast joggling in this bra. The underwire sits flush against your skin and the bra exposes nothing but your collarbones and shoulder blades; everything is enclosed and secure. It's amazing for running and doing crossfit activities, like jumprope, burpees, jumping jacks... It runs true to size but if you are like me and can wear two different bra sizes, order the larger of the two. That way, it's easier to pull on and since the underwire pretty much encases the breasts, you don't want it to run too small or it will press against them and be ill-fitting and uncomfortable.

Great sports bra!
I really love this sports bra! I love the racer-style back and adjustable straps. It's extrememly comfortable and gives me great support when exercising. I ordered my true size and the fit was perfect! I will probably order another color soon! I would definitely recommend this bra!

hard to get on
I personally don't like having to pull the bra over my head then having to hook it. One-or-the-other way to fasten (pull-over OR hook) is how I prefer it. I think this will be annoying having to pull it over my head, hooking it, then spinning it around to put it on. All this manipulation will will wear out the bra faster.

Far and away the best
I actually bought this a few years ago-- and it STILL holds the ladies up with style. It's just as strong and good looking as when I first got it 3 years ago. The quality is superior, and the support is excellent. I'm a DD-DDD, and I can do aerobics in this. It's also super comfy, and perhaps most importantly to me, it does not give me uni-boob. I hate looking like I've smuggled a watermelon. I really love the shape this gives me, and am very happy to run errands in it under my work out clothes. I've tried some other styles, but if I'm jumping up and down, or appearing in public, this is the work-out bra. You do have to pull it over your head because of the T-back, but it's really easy; that hasn't been a problem for me at all.
