Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Keeps on supporting!
I am a 36DD and I have worn this bra for over a year and a half. It provides great shape and continues to support even near the end of a workout. I did have to figure out how to adjust the straps to get it to support an entire 90 min ballet class. The straps have to be a little tight at the beginning, but do loosen slightly as it wicks away the sweat. The three bras that I have are over a year old and the plastic pieces are fine. In fact all three bras are still in great shape and are worn and washed weekly (sometimes twice a week); however, I have never put the bras in the dryer or used fabric softener on them. I just bought 4 more so that I don't have to wash all the time. No bra will remove all of the gravitational pull that happens with a jumping motion; however, these are the best sports bras I have ever worn.

Tired of wearing two bras!
No need to wear two bras for high-impact activities!

I do yoga regularly and I'm decently flexible, but I still couldn't hook this bra. Honestly, I was happy to find a racer back with underwires. I just don't know how people who find this product a success latch the bra. I even tried latching it first the pulling it over my head. That ended badly. I hate to admit defeat but back it goes.

Great support for high impact activities
I have had several of these bras in the past couple of years. I'm usually a 36C and I didn't order a size up like other reviewers suggested and I'm fine with it. I agree w/ other reviews that it's hard to put on, but it's only hard when you're already a little sweaty so I try to be dry when putting it on. Luckily, I don't sweat a lot. As for taking it off, I figured out a technique, but it's definitely not as easy as simply unlatching an everyday bra, especially when sweaty, but it's not as hard as some reviewers made it sound. Overall, I love it because of the support while running and for my high impact aerobic classes.
