Getting a bra with the right support is important. If you don't love the fit, send it back - returns are on us.
why we made this
We designed this bra to give our girls bounce-free support from our first stride through our last dash for home. Made of lightweight Swim fabric, this bonded bra was engineered to mould to our unique shapes as it warms up.

I normally wear a 32C bra size but after trying that size on it was a little too much. I opted for the 34C (5'1, 115 lbs) and its supportive but not too snug. I have had it for about a year now and I will say it holds up great compared to some of the other Lulu products/bras I own. However I only wear it for long distance running so I am not sure how it would feel in a crossfit or other class setting. Perfect for running, but def size up.

Full on support to run with the wind
The Bitty Bracer ran quite true to size for me - insanely tight when you first wriggle into it, but have no fear, the warmth from your speedy body will snuggle to fit within a run or two.
Following a few shorter, then long runs, I used it for the recent Gold Coast Marathon and it was amazing. I say that because: a) no chaffing. Winner winner. b) All my marathon photos look perky - where less supportive bras, give the way on the bounce for a 'hanging low' look, the Bitty Bracer was high and mighty all the way.

I love this bra and suggest it it just came in the mail and I tried it on I just can't tell if I should have went a size up I ordered a 32 b and that is my size. But this sports bra makes a lot of back fat and I'm not even fat!

Takes Some Getting Used To
I bought this on a whim, I needed a new supportive bra for running. The women in the store were super super helpful. My bra size is a 32C but I ended up buying a 34C. It's supposed to fit tight and be hard to get on but the smaller one was just a little too much. It does seem tight and uncomfortable at first, but if you follow the directions on the tag (weird, I know) it is wonderful.
It's definitely not a bra for lounging around in, but when you need something to really support the girls, it's perfect. No movement and its so comfortable and non-restricting.

I couldn't even get it on...
I made the mistake of buying this from "we made too much" and sadly can't send it back. I wear a 36C. I closely followed the directions on how to put it on, and the straps were not even long enough to reach the top of my breasts. I understand that it fits tightly and would be short, but this is way too short for a woman of 5'11". Once I had it half on, it was just as difficult to take off.
Not being able to return it, I gave it to my friend to try. She is a few inches shorter than I am, but we wear the same bra size. She couldn't get it on either.
Perhaps you can make an exception for a good customer and take this bra back. It has been the biggest waste of money, and I am hugely disappointed in it.

I'm not very large in the chest (B cup) but I like things secure when I run or CrossFit. I had started to notice some soreness after high impact workouts with some of my other bras (not Lulu). This was my first Lulu purchase and it completely eradicated any bounce induced pain.

Woohoo!! I can run in just one bra!!
I was really skeptical of this bra. I've never had a lulu bra work well for me, especially not for running. I'm a 38C and have a broad ribcage as well as big "girls" so up to now, I've always had to double up on sports bras for running. A friend told me how much she loved her bitty bracer, so I gave it a shot. I was terrified to try it on in-store (I had this image of getting stuck in the bra and having to ask someone to help me out of it) but it wasnt nearly as hard as I expected. I got my regular bra size and while it does take a bit of muscle to get it on, it wasnt that difficult. And yes, you DO have to scoop the girls in there! The fabric was stiffer than I expected and I was certain it would cause chaffing. But I have now gone on several, hot, muggy runs (ranging from 6 miles to 12 miles) in two different bitty bracers, and haven't had any issues. This is a huge deal as all my other bras chaffe to some point when it's hot & humid out. So not only do I get to wear only one bra (its amazing how much lighter I feel now) I don't have to bathe myself in body glide before each run either! As for the look of the bra....it does squish things out in certain places. But it's not much worse than other sports bras, and to be honest, I have extra stuff to be squished out, so I can't blame the bra for that!

Best Supportive Lulu Bra
For some reason this bra was on sale when I was visiting Dallas. I snatched it up in black for $25 (great deal) and I am glad I did. This may not be the cutest looking Lulu bra but its definetley the most supportive. This bra runs small. I had to size majorly up. I am usually a 34C and I bought a 38C, but it fits great and has not stretched out.

Cut skin during race
This bra left a large scar after a half marathon race. I had worn the bra a few times without any issues. I am disappointed because I bought this bra for long distance running. I have attached a picture of the scar 2 days after the race.
I am a 36 C and the bra fit well otherwise. I have run lots of races and own lots of lululemon bras and have never seen anything like this before.
