Champion Powersleek&reg; Sports Bra
Everything I want for large breasts!
My fitted bra size is a 42F. Usually a DDD runs a tad on the small side where I'll spill out. Not with this bra, I decided to take a chance and order the DDD since it doesn't have F, but I'm glad I ordered this size, it is a PERFECT fit. I absolutely cannot wear an underwire and I hate seams that show in the cups, so smoothing support is essential. I love how high the coverage is, the fabric doesn't allow my larger nipples to poke out, and my girls don't hardly move even with full jump. I am shorter in stature, and often the straps are too long but these are great I prefer a more rounded cup as opposed to the cone-ish look anyway but I am definately not pushed flat and out the sides, it has plenty of side support without feeling smushed. There is enough definition between the breast to reduce the uniboob look. This is so comfortable I may even sleep in it! This is going to be my everyday bra and I'm going to order many more! Please please never stop selling or making these and make more colors! The ONLY trouble I have is with the metal clips that hold the straps, they turn sideways and need to be sewn INTO the fabric. I also wish the logo were lighter so I can wear it under a white shirt without showing through.

Nice fit, but plastic clips in front are a big no!
Good fit for a DD cup. Holds things in place well while exercising. However, the awful plastic clips in the front won't stop moving up and down. I'm afraid these will break any time now! For the price, the bra is not worth it due to the plastic clips. I would expect a much better quality than that. Very disappointed when this bra came in. I really wish I would have returned it rather than take the chance with it.

Very comfortable bra!
This bra definitely runs large in the cup size as compared to other brands carried by this same store. In the "other brands", I wear a B cup. In this one, I had to get a DD cup.
We measured, too, just like the sizing page shows. Ordered online, but the fit was so terrible, I had to drive 100 miles one-way to an outlet store just so I could try on before exchanging! I could have spent a small fortune in shipping fees just trying to find the right size. The store personnel were very understanding and professional - couldn't have had a better experience, though!
Love the comfort! Once you find your size, you'll love them, too! Feels like silk against your skin; I love the extra top coverage - just feels more secure; and I also love the Velcro adjuster being in front!

Used to be a great sports bra
I have been buying this model sports bra for many years, but the quality and fit have deteriorated in the last couple of years. The bra used to provide more support: the straps are now too stretchy and there seems to be less cotton in the fabric and in more areas than previously, which lessens support. The closure at the back used to have hooks and an adjustable snap, and enough fabric under the hooks, so they didn't dig into your back. The way the straps are adjusted has also changed to the front and the metal pieces now dig into the front of the shoulders. I think the manufacturer changed suppliers to get a cheaper product, but the price has increased! I gave the product an extra star because it USED to be good.
