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.
I have worn the Champion racerback sports bra for years. NO back hooks or pads for me please, ever. But the changing fads in bras left me longing for other colors and an updated style for awhile now. This bra is similar in comfort, fit and performance and comes in a variety of colors, I have three of the colors, and I might buy the green one while they are available. I would feel comfortable wearing this bra without a shirt. And once you locate the little finished hole in the upper inside section, the pads pull out very easily. I am a happy jogger,
I like this bra so much I bought it in every color. Gray, green, black, purple...yes I’ve bought 6 of them. First I ordered about 5-6 sports bras of numerous brands then tested thru all bras testing for stretch, tendency to sag, ability to cover breast without tissue bulge over the front edge of the bra,difficulty getting on and off over the head, softness of fabric, and lift to correct placement on torso, cotton content.
This bra beat all others by a mile...I wear a 38-40DD or DDD cup. This bra passed all of my high standard tests.
Below I’ll rate this bra on each on a 1-5 star scale: stretch-5* Lift-5* covering breast w/o skin being forced up over the front edge of the bra-5* difficulty getting on and off over the head-5* Softness of fabric-4* lift to correct placement on torso-5* Cotton content-0*...none,my only disappointment
This bra has some great features: -a bias edge along the top edge of the bra to keep good shape and cover large breasts -a 3rd strap inside the back shoulder area over spine that adds stability and lift -woven in lift bands of tighter stitch to stabilize breasts -medium lift suitable shape for workout or daily wear not just a work out.
I wear these everyday. The best sports bra brand I’ve had before were Champion. They were cotton and that is what I was looking for but the lift on these was worth sacrificing the cotton for. I hope they still carry these when I need to order again. This bra is a winner, especially for large chested women.
I bought one of these at Target before they stopped selling this brand. Loved it, wanted more. Found these here on Amazon, bought the same exact size & style .... they are tight! Tighter than the one I purchased at Target. But they do stretch and give amazing support. At times I forget I am even wearing it! My only complaint is it is tricky to put it on and take it off. However, I really like the way the feel and support!
Have tried so many bras and just disappointment - until now. I hate cups in a bra but if you take them out on other bras, there is no support. This is nearly as awesome as the C9 I bought from Target years ago! I don't mind the cups in this one - but better yet - I take them out and the bra still offers better support than other sports bras with cups. It fits snug, but not too snug. So comfortable as well. Nice side coverage. Loved it so much I went back and bought 2 more. Normally 42C, ordered XXL. Hoping they get the other 2 colors in so I can have l colors. I machine washed and dried on low and it comes out great. SO happy I found this.
This bra is the same quality as other champion bras. Well made and delivers as promised. My only complaint is that this fabric feels thicker than other Champion bras I've owned - not more supportive, just thicker. If you like a thicker fabric, this is the one for you.
