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 has solid under breast support and the band is very secure. The cups are comfortable as are the straps. The one thing is that it pushes up and the top gets a bit jiggly because the top is more open. The band in front under the cups doesn't ride or really move so that's nice. It is quite stiff and supportive all around but also doesn't shift much. It's great support but not really very flexible.
I saw in previous customer reviews that this bra runs small, I went ahead an ordered my regular size thinking it would just be snug or that I'd have to use the last row of hooks. I have at least one other Champion sports bra and don't have a problem with it. Unfortunately, I couldn't hook this bra without quite a struggle. Rather than return the bra, I went ahead and got a bra extender at my local fabric store and that works just fine. If I ordered another one of these, I would order a 38D rather than a 36D - the cup size is correct.
Had to order up one band size but stuck with my regular cup size. For the price, this is a great bra, especially if you hook it between the shoulder blades. I'd say it's on par with my more expensive ones with the same amount of control. I don't run but I do kickboxing so there's a fair amount of jumping around and it supports my DD well.
