I've had good success with Champion as well. I just bought two bras from Athleta a year ago (note: they are pretty pricey) but so far I've been very happy with them and they are not stretching out like the other bras I have bought in the past.

I think as long as you are truly supported (not just have fabric wrapped around you) that's a good sports bra. It took me a long time to figure out the difference. You may want to go to a sports store (Dick's Sporting Goods, Sports Authority, Omega Sports or any one of those types of places) and try a few on just to see what your options are. I was suprised how much better a more supportive/tighter bra felt when I moved around in it - where before I didn't want anything constricting.

I tend to hold on to mine for too long before buying new ones - so I think they are fine and then I realize that they've stretched too far for too long. (3+ years with various weight fluctuations will do that it seems - and I do know better.)

P.S. Title Nine has good sports bras also.

I have had good success with Champion and Athletica. I wash them on gentle in warm water in the washing machine, then drip them dry. The elastic bands last longer without the heat from the dryer.

There is a Champion Outlet store in Grants Pass, Oregon and I drive through there 1-2 times per year. I get sports bras at about 50% off there.

Once in a while, I have found a good sports bra at the Hanes Outlet stores, but not reliably. I have used one from Target, but they don't last as long as Champion. Danskin from Walmart is all right, but I have not found the sports bras with enough support from Danskin (though I love their sport line of clothing!)

There are lots of great brands out there. Depending on your activity and the amount of money you would like to spend, will determine your selection. As a runner, I like the Moving Comfort brand. While I may spend upwards of $45 for one bra, they can last quite some time with good care.

I just read on Sharcare that you should buy a good sports bra. They meant a good brand. Which is a good brand ? I have a pair from Hanes and I am fine with it but after reading that article I am little confused !

No matter how much you mess up today tomorrow is a new day. Keep on going.
