Oops that seemed to be a bit of a conversation stopper, was not meant to be. I am very well and having a great time with my horse now.

Ok, so after almost getting a black eye (or 2) while riding Porkchop through all of her attitude issues the other night, I sucked it up and bought a few Champion bras. Here's my take on them.

1: Champion Powerback Underwire Sports Bra | Champion

I found this one for $10 on TeamExpress.com so I figured what the heck. I got it today and tried it on. Does take a bit of work to actually get it on as it is a cross between a racerback and a normal bra with the eye hooks. Getting it off... well... yeah. If you are single or live alone or DON'T intend on living in it, I'd suggest another one. I actually bought a size LARGER than what I needed as it was all they had in stock and I still got STUCK! It fits SOOO snugly that you can't maneuver it to get your arm pulled back in. Took 5 minutes of me wrestling with it to get it off but it wasn't without practically dislocating my shoulder and punching myself in the face when it suddenly came loose. As for tata movement, it was nonexistant. I was jumping up and down in my kitchen and only got a smidge of movement.

2. Champion Double Dry Full-Support Underwire Sports Bra | Champion

This one is easier to get on and off and I love how the straps sit higher on the shoulder and don't slide off. It kept the girls where they should be but when I jumped, there was more obvious movement than with the first.

3. Champion Shape Scoop-Back Full-Figure Underwire Sports Bra | Champion

Waiting on this one to arrive. Will review when it does.

Lucky LOL! I was riding a 15h QH with a choppy trot but have moved to a nice moving Appy mare and a 12h Haffie cross who has the attitude of Roseanne so these became a necessity before I suffered brain damage (worse than what I already have LOL).

quality sport bra a must

I don't find the kind of sport bra you can get at Target to be sufficient. If the straps are made of a very stretchy material, they will allow bounce. I am a D cup and I use a bra made for the "title Nine" sportswear company. The bra I wear is called "Moving Comfort" . Don't be scared by the appearance. It looks huge but the actual bra itself is of a normal size and then it has this sort of overpiece that makes it look bigger. I actually put my cell phone down into this over layer (so it is not actually against my skin but betwen the outside of the cup and the outlayer piece. Hard to explain but look at their online catalogue.
My main point is that you get what you pay for. In this case , be prepared to pay more than 50$! BUT it's your body we are talkin' about here. Isn't your basic comfort woth it? It is a very well made bra and worth every cent. I have two and and they are really very comfortable. I wear them like always.
To keep a bra lasting a long time, wash it in the shower or bath when you bathe yourself and let it airdry overnight. Avoid putting it in the drier; the heat breaks down the nylon and stretchy material.s

Lol, maybe it's not so bad being a smallish B cup from this standpoint... I never really have these challenges and will frequently ride very comfortably in a regular bra (non sport). Though I do like to wear the sport bras from time to time.

Amarea,

I had exactly the same experience with that first Champion bra as you did. I suspect that why it's been marked down to $10. The struggle to get the thing hooked is a workout in itself and can leave you too tired to ride!

I do love the other two you mentioned. Someone else in this thread mentioned the Title IX and I took a look at those and they look terrific. May have to try them the next time.
