To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This bra works for my 32DDs (I purchased a Medium) for running, and that is tough to find! I have purchased and returned countless sports bras. I prefer a compression style bra that really just locks everything in, with a comfortable band and racer back. I hate padding, straight straps, when a band is too tight, and when it shapes your breasts to make them look "attractive" but I feel like they're saying "hey look at me! They look twice as large as normal." This has been great for running and jumping, is very comfortable, and doesn't shape my boobs. I am going to purchase another one after owning this for nearly a year! When you find something you love, buy multiple!
The hooks on the back, allow it to actually tighten under the chest.
Got measured at nordstrom as 32G and that size fits perfectly for normal bras (Though VS tried to tell me I was a C, those never fit). Struggle with support for sports (which are effectively my life). Ordered a Large. It fits well and supports well. I run a lot (fitness classes, soccer, and full tackle sports). It works well for all of the above. I ordered 5 more, all consistent fit. Highly recommend. I think people not finding support have ordered wrong size or are between sizes.
I got this super cheap (price quadrupled once I purchased mine) but I think I would still like this even if I paid the higher price. I consider myself lucky. I am a 38C/D and got an XL. Just slightly snug, but I like it, and have worn it all day before and was surprised by the end of he day that I wasn't uncomfortable.
UPDATE....I do not to comment until something has been washed and worn multiple times. And my initial review was after a few washes. However after a few more, I am not pleased. The elastic slips and is more “underboob” than rib cage and not supportive. I still stand by champion products, as I have many of the marathon bras that have held up for years. Just bummed that one isn’t as available :(
I like the shape of this sports bra and the formation of the back straps. I have an old shoulder injury and many sports bras make my back seize just putting them on. This isn't easy to get into and then you have to hook the clasp. Also not fun to get out of, but great support and flattering shape. The chest strap is nice, but a little tough to sneak a heart monitor under. I typically wear a 36D and I ordered a large.
Did not think the support would be as good as previous max-support Champions, as it looks flimsier. I was wrong -- it does the job through running, jumping jacks, burpees, squat jumps. Very comfortable as well.
Couldn't give this 5 Stars because the bra is too big for me, but I'll just return for a smaller size. For buyer reference, I wear a 36DD bra and bought an XL. The waistband is too loose and a little baggy. I'm exchanging for a Large.
