Champion Powersleek&reg; Sports Bra
I think the straps are not long enough for me, because the bra rides up a bit in the back, but it's extremely comfortable and I like the silky fabric.

This is the best running bra.
This is the best running bra I have had. Fits perfectly, feels secure but not too restrictive. No underwire but still provides a lot of support. Comfortable.

This bra is perfect for runner's who want no bounce. I love this bra, but there are some quality upgrades that Champion needs to make. The plastic strap connectors do break and they make me nervous sometimes that this may happen during a workout. I've only had one break so far, but one is enough to make you worry (they did replace the bra). It would also be nice if they offered this bra in more colors. Other than that, this bra is awesome and I'd highly recommend it.

great for me, not for everyone
I wear a 34D and love, love, love this bra. I ride horses and have to sit the trot a lot -- it is VERY bouncy -- and with this bra my breasts stay put. I am short so the adjustable straps are very nice. I also appreciate the regular back fastening because I cannot get into/out of racerback bras due to arthritis in my shoulders.
I can tell by the cut, though, that this bra will not work for everyone. Some women need an underwire, and this one doesn't have it. Also it probably works better for women with flattish (but large) breasts rather than ones that point straight out.
My only complaints are: that it does not come in a flesh or cream color, and that the rings that hold the straps to the cups are plastic. The bras wear so well (I machine wash in a lingerie bag and air dry them) that it's frustrating to lose a bra to a little piece of plastic breaking! I should say that this has not happened in a while, so maybe Champion has improved the plastic.
