Rated 5 out of 5Â by ShelleyAnn Best sports bra I have ever owned!
I have been wearing this bra for at least 2 years. I work out every day. Needless to say they get alot of use and alot of washing. I buy two at a time and only have to replace every 9-12 months. You won't be disappointed. I would note although there are hook and eye in back you must put on over your head, but the fit and support make it worth while. The fit and appearance is so great you can wear under almost anything. The Power Back breaks the mold on traditional sports bras. I hope this style never gets discountinued!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Carrieberryca Yes, difficult to get on until you know how
I purchased this bra several months ago because I was looking for a very supportive bra to work out in. Between the jogging, the yoga, and the resistance training, I don't want to have to worry about my girls falling out all the time or bouncing around. This bra solves that problem. When I first purchased the bra, I DID have some difficulty with it. I found through trial and error what works best for me is to slip it on over the head and just reach behind me to close the hook and eye closures. Taking it off can be a little difficult at first too, because you have to pull it up over your head again, and if you are sweaty it can be difficult to pull off. I think overall this bra design isn't my favorite, but it DOES offer a lot of support. I actually ended up purchasing 2 in each color, and occasionally I wear them under t-shirts during the day just because the bra holds me so well and it is so comfortable. If you feel you may struggle with putting this bra on, or if you have a compromised shoulder for any reason, I would skip this bra and go to a regular bra that would be easier to put on.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by tmnberry hard to get on
This item was hard to get on because it seemed to run small and you can't unhook it all the way from the back or front. It was a very tight fit to have to pull over your head.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by CarrieinChicago 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.
