Weird design, poor construction. I bought this bra in hopes that it might be something like the Champion underwire bras from a few years back, that had the U-back. This one is very disappointing by comparison. It is almost impossible to get on and off. It makes your boobs kind of bullet-shaped, and angled outward to the sides-- unattractive and matronly-looking. Although the center front of the bra is quite high, the side fronts are cut a bit too low, and at a funny angle so they make an ugly underarm bulge. The seam that joins the side cup piece to the center cup piece is lumpy and very bulky. Looks to me like they should have trimmed the seam better and top stitched it to make it lie flat and smooth. The band is slightly too big. It tends to gap away from the body at the center front. Champion-- why don't you go back to the older design with the u-shaped back? That was a great design, not just for sports, but for everyday, too! Juliette from Texas

This bra fits great, but does not last I've had three of them and two have had the wire break through the fabric so quality could defiantly be better! Lfaszer from Galt, CA

I'll admit, most of the activity I wear this bra for is walking. Still, it's good to be able to jog around the blind corners in my neighborhood so the dog and I aren't hit by a car without worrying about 'the girls' movement. Jenn from Lakewood, CA

This bra offers good support but its really hard to take off. The underwire presses into my neck when I take it off...so that is very uncomfortable. blake from atlanta, ga, usa

Love this. I've never been able to find a sports bra that has good support and doesn't hurt my back or shoulders. I can workout and feel great Heather from Ohio

It fits great and so far give good support for running and tennis which is why I bought it for in the first place. I have only worn it two times but I did not think it was hard to put on or take off. I only wish the adjustable straps were longer. Laura from Pittsburgh, PA

I am very pleased with this bra, so much so that I am telling women I know who have a tendency toward upper back weakness, how effective this bra is in helping me keep my back in good position. I've also given a full report to my former Physical Therapist. Kathy from VT

Great support while excersizing. The only minor complaint I have is that they have changed the fabric since the last time I purchased them (about a year ago). The fabirc now seems lik eit will hold up really well but it is rather uncomfortable (stiff and itchy). Laurie from Niskayuna/New York/USA

Love the style & once I get it on, it feels great. I have yet to try it when I workout. That will be tomorrow. There are 2 things that I don't like about it.........once I have it on, it's hard for me to "hook" it in the back. I can get the bottom 2, but the top one is VERY difficult. The other thing is that it gaps a little at the side of breasts. I ordered the size I normally wear. Perhaps I should've downsized. Carrie from Jerseyville, IL

Hate this bra. Was so excited to finally find a racerback sports bra in size DD so I purchased 2. All the sports bras I have found for larger sizes had the regular straight straps in the back. However when I got the bra and tried to put it on I couldn't. It's an underwire and NOT stretchy and you have to pull it over your head to get it on. Once you get it on it's impossible to get the back fasteners closed... My arms don't work like that. So I tried again closing the back fasteners first then trying once again to pull it over my head. Was almost impossible but I did it. I wore it all day and by the end of the day it had rubbed the skin off under both arms. So uncomfortable. Would not recommend this bra. Michelle from San Diego, CA
