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.
Overall this is a great sports bra except for those of us with larger cups. I'm a 38I (I'm close to a 36 so a smaller 38) , yes you read that correctly. That's a 38G in the UK which is what I usually buy because the US does not carry my size. I typically have to shop at higher price places for quality bras like Nordstrom. So I pay high prices for my bras. Sports bras just shouldn't cost that much. We have to wash them way more. This held it all in but was a bit tight. I got the xl. Some boob would try to escape the sides. I didn't bounce around but I felt like my boobs looks flattened and weird.
This did create uniboob but really most sports bras do for my size and it's not pretty.
If you're a smaller size it will work well for you.
Now about the quality, that's why I gave this 4 stars and not 3. It's made very well!!
The racerback presses on a sensitive area for me and caused pain. For this reason I had to return it.
I wear a 32A bra, regularly. The small works at keeping me from bouncing. It is not as easy to get into and out of it as it is with bras that have clasps, but it's not too difficult for me, anyway. Maybe I'm more flexible than other reviewers. To get out of it, I usually bend downwards and that helps.
It does not conceal nipples, though if you're concerned about that. But it is not a concern for me.
I really like champion sports bras and have 2 of the women's show-off sports bra that I love. This bra is alright. I feel like as a 34B I bounce a bit more than I was hoping and that the other style actually does a better job keeping me in place. It is still comfortable and stylish, I just don't think I would wear it for longer than a 6 mile run!
I wish Champion bras were easier to put on and take off, but as compression bras go, I think they're the gold standard. They don't chafe and they really hold the girls in tight. Even though my breasts are not big (B cup) I hate it when they bounce around as I run. This bra does the job well, even though I have to contort myself to get in and out of it.
I have been looking for a replacement for the old Champion Compression Bras, and this was not it. It is cute and well made, but not nearly compressive enough for what I was looking for. The fabric is very stretchy and does not hold my breasts in place enough. Would not recommend for larger chests.
Although this bra doesn't have as compression as some of the ones I have with a clip in the back, it does its job pretty well. It breathes pretty well, so you don't feel like you're accumulating a puddle in your bra. The straps are pretty comfortable, but not quite as plush as I was expecting from the description. Others mentioned it, but since this bra has ZERO padding, it is headlight city. Its fine under a jacket right now, but I'm not sure I would wear this alone with a lighter weight shirt in warmer weather.
