By Christina

Comments about Womens Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra:

This bra is okay but the sizes run about two sizes to small especially for women with larger cup sizes. This can be painful to put on over the head. Wish this bra had a standard back opening.

Comments about Womens Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra:

My normal bra size is a 32DDD or a 34DD. I ordered this bra in a 34DD and it fits like a charm. I'm a long distance runner and have always suffered with discomfort from bras that simply squish the girls together and do little to reduce or eliminate bouncing during high impact exercise. Problem solved with this bra! The slight racer back design makes it even more comfortable, along with the adjustable and lightly padded straps. The underwire cups separate and hold my breasts in place to eliminate -- and I do mean ELIMINATE -- any bouncing to make me much more comfortable when running. This bra is also attractive for normal wear under sweaters and blouses as it does not look like a normal sports bra.

The only downside is that it's slighly difficult to get on and you must fasten the hooks once you have the bra on (something I've never been able to do well). When taking it off I've almost poked my eye out with the corner of the underwire! Maybe I'm just a klutz! Despite that, I'll keep on wearing it as that minor inconvenience is well worth the benefits.

Comments about Womens Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra:

This sports bra is what I have been looking for! It is supportive and comfortable. I wear this for most activities: dance, yoga, weight training, and light-moderate impact cardio. For a big girl (DD+) it is really nice to have the great support without the squished sports bra look or gigantic straps. I can wear cute tops with this sports bra, even v-neck or scoop neck without overwhelming cleavage! I do have some trouble with the hook and eye clasps in the back because I don't have the best flexibility in my shoulders. But, once it's on, I can usually wear it for long periods of time.

Comments about Womens Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra:

It's been more than 10 years that I've been wearing sports bras now, and I've been constantly looking for a better bra. I've finally found it!

This bra offers great bounce support while maintaining separation. The separation prevents profuse heat and sweating between the "girls" and makes this bra so much more comfortable than all the others that I have tried (Moving Comfort, Nike, etc). All that and the bra costs about $20 less than the others I've tried! I bought 5.

I agree with the other reviewers that this bra is not the easiest to put on, but as an avid runner, soccer player, and tennis player I will take the extra minute of fussing for the hours of comfort that I gain. I have noticed that the bras are significantly easier to put on after the first wash.

Bottom line: a revolution in my life. I've lost five pounds since I bought this bra because it's allowed me to run and play so much more comfortably.

Comments about Womens Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra:

I just bought this bra yesterday for a half marathon I did this morning. Great support and absolutely no chafing whatsoever. I'm normally a 34C but the cup size runs a little small so I had to go with a D cup. The ONLY bad thing about this bra is that the cups are very see through....your headlights will certainly be on and on high beam no less. If you wear a somewhat thicker shirt you'll be fine, though. The support and overall fit is so great that I've since ordered another one in black.

    This is a great bra! I was skeptical to order online, I have a VERY HARD TIME buying bras. I am busty and am not one who can wear the average support bra. This is awesome! I am very active and am looking for something that keeps my bust in place while working out. This did it! I'm highly impressed and will buy another in the future!

    I am a 40DD and now that I can actually protect 'the girls' I can jog in comfort once again. I have shopped seriously for an athletic support bra for many years and never I mean NEVER found one that supported, separated, and was comfortable. I have absolutely NO PROBLEM getting this bra on or off, cool or sweaty. In addition to higher impact activities, when I was in my Yoga class in an upside down position this particular styling didn't let me fall out either. I didn't have to be self conscious and could stay cool in my tank top. I'm ordering more so I can wear them even when I'm not working out.
    THANKS you are my CHAMPIONS!

    Comments about Womens Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra:

    I have two of these bras. One with wire and one without. Both are very supportive on all my long runs. However, chafing is a problem. I am a D cup and have issues with rubbing under my breasts and in between with both of these bras. I do have sensitive skin and have to use a chafing stick. Even with that I still have chafing issues with these bras.

        Comments about Womens Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra:

        Yes, I agree, this bra is very difficult to get on and off. It does get easier with continued use though - it took me a couple of months, but it is not the struggle to get off that it was the first couple of weeks. If they made it easier to get on and off I believe it would lose the structure that makes it work, so I just committed to get acclimated to it.

        This is my first non-compression bra, so I am enjoying having a nice shape and form as opposed to having a uniboob

        For me, this bra, both in cup and band-width ran large. I originally ordered my normal size of 36C and it was HUGE in both band-width and cup size. I reordered a 34C and it is PERFECT! I have never been comfortable in a 34 band size, so I do believe this runs large. If you are in doubt, I would order both a 34 and a 36 and return the one that does not work for you.

        I agree with a couple comments about the fabric being slightly scratchy . . . The IMPORTANT thing is it does not feel scratchy while being worn. If it were soft I believe it would stretch quickly and lose its effectiveness as a great sports bra.

        I love the slightly padded straps. Also the way the straps attach to the cup sides then go across your back to the racer-back provides very nice support.

        I run 25 to 30 miles per week and wash this once per week. It NEVER has never been in the dryer. I do wash it in the washing machine with my workout clothing in cold water, on delicate in a bag, then let it hang dry. I've had it for six months and it shows no signs of wear.

        I also appreciate the breathability of the fabric, this bra, unlike my former compression bras does not make me hot.

        My husband loves the shape that this bra gives me, and I have worn it with 'street clothes' because of the nice shape.

        If I could ask Champion to change just one thing, it would be to provide a bit more 'coverage' or petals since nipples are extremely visible. It seems like they could use a firmer fabric in the cups, perhaps like the fabric across the back to provide a bit more coverage for your nipples.

          I am a bigger girl and wear a 44 DD in regular bras. I sized down to a 44 D and I prefer the cups to be a little more snug and the DD felt just a tad too big.

          It's nice to find a very supportive bra for jogging that doesn't give you the mono-breast look! This bra is also easy to get on and off and I have experienced no chaffing. I highly recommend this bra.

            Perfect for my high-impact kickboxing class as well as running. No bounce for this 38D girl! As others have found, fastening the hooks behind my back is tricky but not impossible. Unfortunately, the hooks on the two I purchased have become misshapen and now do not hook at all. Worse, the end of the wire pokes out of the hook.

            Taller women should note that while these straps are adjustable, they have no stretch whatsoever. I am 6 feet tall and have the straps adjusted to their longest and they are just barely long enough. Another centimeter of length would make them perfect for me. I won't be buying these again, which is too bad, because these bras really stop the bounce!

                I was surprised at how nice looking this bra is, doesn't remind me of a sports bra. I like the way the straps fit, not too thick but the support is there. The band width (I bought a 36) is not snug enough so I will buy another one size smaller. The girls stay in place (as much as possible on this nearly 50 year old woman) but don't feel compressed beyond recognition. A good buy for running but will also be suitable for under a dress or shirt that has the racer back.

                This bra has excellent support, but I won't wear it unless there is someone around to fasten it! If you have any upper-body injury or shoulder pain you will NOT be able to put this on yourself. I will unfortunate NOT be purchasing another.

                      I think a 36DDD would have fit perfectly, but since DDD was not available, I went up a band size to a 38DD. The band is not snug, but still excellent support! Provides great separation and great moisture wicking fabric!

                        i tried this bra on in the store and thought it was great. i am always disappointed in sports bras because of the uniboob effect 36DD to E, no matter how supported i refuse to wear a bra that doesn't make the girls look good. this bra gives great shape and i wanted to wear it for work and snowboarding. i have a physical job that requires 12 hours on my feet, with lots of lifting and bending. after going home i tried wearing the bra for a more extended period of time to make sure i would be comfortable. after about 45minutes i was in pain from the band rubbing and chafing. upon further inspection the bottom of this band is a scratchy meshy material like the rest of it and it was cutting into me. this bra would be amazing for my needs if it had a small padded edge along the bottom to make it comfortable.

                        Love this bra. It's the first sports bra I've owned that offered the support that can rival a regular bra made by W****l. That being said, you have to be a bit of a contortionist to get this on and off. Yes, the band has the 3-prong clasp. But it really isn't functional. Honestly, I don't bother un-doing it anymore. I use it as motivation to get out and run, because once it's on, it's a pain in the rear to get off. The straps are adjustable, which is a plus. I do wish the straps were a little softer, and that the cups had some padding. Like another reviewer said, you get a "headlight" effect. I'm normally a 38DD, and that's what I purchased. The band isn't incredibly flexible, so I think it fits just a tad tight (not tight enough to be uncomfortable though), and I think I could have used a 38E but it isn't offered. I still have some cleavage and not as much separation as I think should be there.

                          I usually wear a 36DDD but ended up getting this bra in a 38DD. It's hard to get on/off, maybe because I'm not used to racer backs. I absolutely ADORE the support of this bra. My "girls" don't so much a THINK of moving. For the first time in years I'm not getting smacked in the face by my "girls" doing jacks. I've seen sportbras go for double this price but for the job this bra does, I'm glad I could find space for it in my budget.

                          I have two of these bras. One with wire and one without. Both are very supportive on all my long runs. However, chafing is a problem. I am a D cup and have issues with rubbing under my breasts and in between with both of these bras. I do have sensitive skin and have to use a chafing stick. Even with that I still have chafing issues with these bras.

                          This bra is okay but the sizes run about two sizes to small especially for women with larger cup sizes. This can be painful to put on over the head. Wish this bra had a standard back opening.

                          Got this bra and love it. It is the first bra I had that provided support and still allowed me to breathe. I am going back for another one!

                          OMG I tried this bra on, it fit and couldnt get it off! I had to ask some strange woman to help me. How embarassing!

                          Tried the wire-free version of the PowerBack - Snug fit - true to size for 36DD. Did not have any problem putting the bra on - just over your head and clasp it in the back...Used it for training and running a half marathon. Very very comfortable with great support. Adjustable straps added plus - have several of these now.

                          I agree...this is almost impossible to get on and off...to hook it you have to reach all the way up your back. It really requires two people unless you are a contortionist.

                          The person who designed this bra never had to wear one, much less take one on or off.

                          Great! Granted the issues stated regarding getting this bra on/off are true, but it is a sports bra!!! Great look, great for running, or just everyday wear! Too bad it doesn't come in more than just black and white! Oh...36C.

                          This bra gives me great support through all my activities: long 1 hour runs, boot camp, sprints. I highly recommend it.

                          I really have looked and looked and spent a lot of $$ on many different sports bras for a 36D size.. and this bra is WONDERFUL! I will agree, the pull over with the hooks take a little to get use to, but I am in love with this bra! Off to order a few more!

                          As a 34D this bra is awesome for running or any other high impact cardio. I love it and am going to buy about three more! The only issue people might have is that it is a pull over. Trust me, its worth. You get use to the pull over.

                          It is the best sports bra ever!! However, I had to get help from my husband putting it on and taken it off. Sadly, I had to return it due to this reason. I WISH IT WAS WITH A SNAP ENCLOSURE, NOT A PULLOVER.

                          No more "Uniboob!" This bra provides excellent support for the D cups out there who like to run.

                          Love, love, love this bra. I'm a 36C, 5'10" and have a hard time trying to find a running bra that doesn't totally mush me flat - this one gives definition, looks GREAT under everyday clothes, and is nonchafing. Highly recommend this one!

                          Very breathable (huge improvement over the Mizuno bra I had in that regard) and comfortable with no chafing. So far the best movement restriction I've had in a sportsbra as a D/DD wearer. The back closure is annoyingly difficult (as other reviewers noted) , and I'm not sure I'd put up with it if I hadn't a spouse to help. Folding it under while hooking so only whatever row of loops you're trying to use is exposed helps but isn't a perfect solution. Still, I would ultimately recommend for those sick of bouncing.

                          I recently bought this sports bra after trying out a Moving Comfort bra that I hated. I LOVE this sports bra. It is a little annoying to get in to and get out of...but it is SUPER comfortable and if you like to feel secure - this is your kind of sports bra! I am larger chested and am a runner. I have struggled to find a good fitting bra, and I recommend this one 100%!

                          Champion had a great bra in the one they had before this one. It had a back clasp and was very easy to put on and take off. While the construction of this bra is good, it's uncomfortable and hard to take off, especially if you've just worked out and are a little damp. I'd give anything for the older model.
