Champion Powerback&reg; Underwire Sports Bra
As a fitness instructor, this is the best sports bra I own. The only reason I can't give it the full 5 stars is because of the little mesh insert that is attached in the corner where the strap meets the top of the cup--it has torn on every one of these bras that I've owned (and I've owned at least 5 in the past couple years) because of the way you have to pull the bra on over your head and then pull the straps up over your shoulders. Thankfully, the bra's performance isn't hindered in any way when the mesh piece tears, it just looks bad.

I will have to agree with other reviewers in that this bra is difficult to put on but even more so when it's damp. Just take it slow and easy when removing it. Otherwise, I feel it does help to reduce bounce.

Good travel bra
I bought two of these to wear while traveling. This is an extremely comfortable bra. "Almost" drip-dries overnight. The straps come up higher toward the neck, which is good to prevent straps from falling down, but then clothes need to have a higher neckline also if you don't want the straps to show. The main drawback is that this bra is nearly impossible to put on and take off. I finally figured out that fastening the hooks first then slipping over the head works best for me to put on; unfasten hooks first before taking off. I did have a moment of panic when I thought I'd need to summon some help to remove the thing. Still, I'm making another trip abroad and these are going too as they are the best that I have found.

Not Just For Sports! (Nor the Young)
This is a great support bra for those of us who are well endowed and need better than average help keeping the ladies above the stomach. I've worn this bra daily for years and love it because it fits perfectly, while being well-built and totally comfortable. I have several in each color. For a mature woman like myself, It can be somewhat tricky to put on and take off (like a suit of armor), but it's really only a matter of getting the coordination right. I wouldn't want the designers to make any changes. "If it ain't broke. . . ."
