Thank you for your feedback.
I normally wear a DDD, but I took a chance with a DD and it fits perfectly.
I have tried every kind of sports bra out there and this by far is the best!
Well I love it, true to size for me (32C), and extremely comfortable.

    If you are considering this bra, you are probably one of many women endowed with large breasts, who has had to wear two bras before for the "support" during exercise. And they probably did not help very much except to have flabs showing through sports tops...Well, you get the point.
    As far as I know, for the given price, this is the best available bra out there for large breasted women (I am myself somewhere in the 34DDD range). I have two of these in 34DD, going to order my third one, and never had to find another type of bra. I have run 10-Ks and a half-marathon in these, and done various step and aerobic classes. The wide straps and the back support are super. Overall, this bra reduces bounce and gives good support. N.B: Champion notes that higher the bra size, lower the MCR. So, if you are getting D cups and 40-42C cups, you will get "High MCR" instead of "Max MCR". [...]

    But if you want to make this bra work for you, here is what I did:
    Once I saw this bra online, I simply went to my local running store (Roadrunner Sports in California) and tried it on. I made sure that it fit me more snug than usual so that even if it loosens up, it will still give me the support. I bought one in the store, and after loving it, bought one from Amazon. Trying it on in the store, even though you may not purchase it there is the key.
    On to "cons" people have been writing about these bras:
    1. Yes, you will have trouble putting it on at first. I just put in all the hooks first and put it on through my head like a t-shirt.
    2. The underwire might feel uncomfortable as it stops just short of your armpit. But I have never had any serious injuries.
    3. I find that sometimes after vigorous exercise, the bra feels constricting enough for me to want to remove it ASAP.

    Ok, so once you figure out how to get the bra on you are on your way. I spin regularly, and it is a must have. I have tried every kind of sports bra out there and this by far is the best! It totally controls the bounce. I have it in both versions with and without the wire, and now find myself only wearing the wire one, even for weights and all because of how much control it has. Now, getting out of it the the next trick! My husband was watching me put it on, and he was crackin up!

    Be sure you know this has a racer back, and it runs small. Also, it is difficult to get on, over the head, and to then fasten and unfasten. Once on, it is a great sports bra for large breasted women. It fits tightly and is very supportive. The black is nice.

    For everyone looking for a true sports bra that will really do its job and be comfortable at the same time, this is it. I am a runner and have tried just about everything you can imagine; this one has surpassed all the others. It's hard to give you some input about size, except to say for me it ran true to what my measurements are; I know for other women they found it either ran too big or too small, so I think a lot of this has to do with your shape and how this bra is made. As for that, it's very sturdy, but soft and strong. I wear this and my "girls" stay right where they are supposed to and it is SO comfortable! No chafing, no bouncing, and it works great with wicking away moisture. Finally, this is not at all the dreaded "uni-boob" look. It has nice separation but not pointy like some others, and offers a very flattering fit under any workout gear. Yes, you will have to pull this over your head but it's not too difficult and worth the extra 15 seconds to get yourself all hooked up and in place. ;) After a long search, and trial and errors (also tried the Glamorise Sports bra but couldn't get the right fit and again, body shape and cup shape were factors) this one is a winner on all counts and there is not a single thing I could say against it. This bra is so comfortable I even wear it on my off days as well, but if you are doing anything high impact, your search is over!

    I am usually a 36D, and my other sports bras are actually 36C, but in this bra I had to get a 36DD. Given my size, it's hard to find a really good sports bra, especially since I love high impact activities (Step, Kickboxing). This bra is quite a contraption that really minimizes bounce. For how this bra fits (it's snug, ladies!), I wouldn't bother wearing it for low impact activities (walking, weight lifting). The only thing I don't love about this bra is that the underwire goes a little too far under my arms (maybe b/c I had to get a bigger cupsize than usual?), which is a bit uncomfortable. But it's definitely not a deal breaker -- I have two of this bra!

    Size: 34DColor: Black
    This is a great bra for me at the gym; it provides fantastic support for high impact exercise without the "uniboob" look. It does seem to size a little small; I'm normally a 36C and the 34D fits well. I do have to say it's an industrial bra! Sometimes it feels like body armor, but it is incredibly supportive - I couldn't bounce in this thing doing jumping jacks. :)

    While it's not a fashion statement (doesn't fit under my racerback tanks like regular sports bras), it offers the best support of any sports bra I've ever owned without squishing me like a pancake.
