Bitty Bracer (B-C cup)
despite the positive reviews, I was skeptical about this bra. But I took a chance, and ordered my normal size (34C).
First off, the teal color is stunning. Stunning. It's a shame I have to cover it up with a tank.
After I got over my giddiness from the color, I was really worried when I felt the bra. It felt like cardboard. BUT, I dutifully followed the instructions and put it on.
Though I felt like I could hardly breathe for a few minutes, I toughed it out. I was ecstatic! Sweat like a beast today and no chafing, great support!!! I was a stuff your bra devotee before, but the support on this bra is even better (though I miss the pocket)!
Lulu, you've pulled through again!

Wanted to love it
I really wanted to love this bra but I couldn't even pull it halfway down over my boobs and had to have my daughter pull it back off me because it got stuck. Would love to see adjustable straps on the C cup version as this may help solve the problem.

Im not sure anyone can help me with this question on here but i have read so many reviews yet none of them really tell us how the bras wear overtime . Like as in do the bras loosen to the point wear the support is not the same? . if so how long do they wear?. Im a 16 yr old Cross Country and Track nd Field runner Im extremely competitive and take my sport serious. I have very large breast for my size (32D 119lb , 5'7) and i fear saggy boobs as i age nd i figure its smarter to invest in quality made sports bras since im in them literally 99.8% of the time. im buying this with my personal money because my mom doesnt belive in paying $70 for a bra nd this is my back to school purchase . So that is the only serious quqestion i have . can someon please help me !!!

Try this Bra!
Okay, I just want to write a review to say GIVE THIS BRA A CHANCE! I'm not going to lie, the first time I tried this bra on in the change room I hated it! It's tough to try on! Probably why it actually comes with instructions on the tag about how to put it on.... But once you get into it correctly it is AWESOME! Best fit and support I have ever found in a sports bra. The girls are absolutely fully supported (I'm a C-cup), ie. NOT GOING ANYWHERE! Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!

Love This Bra!!
I love this bra!! I have used the Tata Tamer for my running and training since it first came out, and figured it was time to upgrade to the Bitty Bracer, and am very glad I did! I usually wear a 34C, but after reading reviews upped my size to a 36C. Initially getting the bra on was a VERY tight squeeze, and after lifting everything into place it fit very snug. After my first run with the bra, I could already feel it moulding to my body while keeping everything very supported. I have now had it for just over a month, and love it just as much as the first day I got it!

Interesting concept...but seems to work!
When I first put this on it didn't even cover half of my girls and I seriously thought I might pull a muscle getting it into place. After following the directions and coaxing everything into place it feels SUPER tight. I was extremely apprehensive about testing it out as it felt ridiculously uncomfortable and tight.
All that said, after running for a few kilometers, getting hot and sweaty, the whole thing just seemed to kind of form into place and I couldn't even feel it anymore. It does seem to stretch out a bit with heat, dampness and wear. There was definitely NO movement happening with this bra on.
Overall, interesting concept which seems to work. Definitely not the type of thing you want to wear every day. I usually take a 34B in bras and did not size up. Although it is very tight I'm pretty sure it fits the way it is supposed to.

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.
