Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
Great support, extremely difficult to put on
Like almost all the other reviewers, I love the support of this bra but hate how difficult it is to put on. I have to either have my husband hook it or try to somehow twist my arms around my back to hook it. I don't always succeed at the latter method, but when I do, it takes forever to get it right and becomes very frustrating. One reviewer suggested hooking it first and then just pulling it on. I'm concerned this method would stretch the bra out and hurt its ability to support in the long run. I hope the manufacturer/designer will continue to work on this product. If it were easy to put on, it would be the most amazing bra ever.

Pulled my neck getting it off, but...
Great bra for high intensity sports. Once it's on, you're locked & loaded. But I've pulled my neck muscles several times trying to take it off. I think I've figure out how to wriggle out of it now without injury but beware that this is the hazard of wearing this bra. Still, the support can't be beat.

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!

great idea that needs tweaking
I agree with the comments regarding the on/off problem. If the keyhole in the back were placed in the front band in the triangular area between the breasts keeping the underwire connected above it to maintain sturdiness, I believe the bra could be pulled overhead, breasts hoisted into the cups and band secured with adjustable hook and eye closure with less risk of injury or irritation. Product testing may have already proven me wrong, but someone's got to be able to find a simple means of maximum support for the ample girls. The long wait and limited choice is ridiculous. I play to exercise and it's just more fun when you feel better.
