Bitty Bracer (B-C cup)
when they say "bitty", they mean it!
I find it amusing that busty girls tried this on and were surprised it was too small; it isn't called the Bitty Bracer for nothing! (I'd have been offended by the name if the girl showing it to me hadn't looked like she uses the "Itty", there was a moment of solidarity between those of us on the IBTC*)
I am a 34B and was looking for a high impact support bra; LLL doesn't exactly offer a lot of high impact support for anything under a C-D cup, so I was exited to try it. Wow was that thing tight! Maybe if I had worn it longer it would have stretched, but I actually hurt my shoulders trying to peel it off in the changing room and that turned me off of it immediately.
Also, straps are very short; it's not like we have a lot to lift, why would they do that? The whole thing is awkward (sits high on the ribs and feels like it's about to curl up) and extremely unforgiving; I looked like a boy.

Can't breathe in this bra with no great support
Please make a great bra for bustier women. The "Run Pace Bra" was a good start. Where did it go? Please bring it back - I'm begging you! I'm a fit 5'3", 119 lbs and bra size is 34C. That's reasonable isn't it? These bras my size were so tight I could barely get them on. This bra is way too tight and uncomfortable for any over a B cup. Also why make a adjustable back strap if the rest aren't adjustable that doesn't make any sense. How will the rest of the bra adjust? The torso and shoulder straps are so tight it is getting ridiculous.
Please make smart and comfortable bras for bustier and athletic women. Please have a focus group. I'd be happy to participate!

Hands Down BEST Bra
I will make this short and simple. This is the best sports bra I have ever tried that actually gives a great amount of support. I am a size 30D but I decided to go with the bitty because it was more attractive looking. I absolutely love this bra, but I could see how some people wouldn't like it. I constantly deal with bra straps falling off my shoulders since they're so long so someone who doesn't have this problem may think this bra is too short. This bra offers support I like never before I will be stocking up!

Ugh!! NON-Adjustable straps!!!
I'm far from being a huge person at 5'7"- 132 lbs -34D bra size.
I'm a runner and I own a number of Ta-Ta Tamer bras but was looking for more support for my next 1/2 marathon, so I thought I'd give this bra a try. I couldn't even pull the thing over "the girls". It was literally stuck mid breast, not pretty!!
I thought that it was probably set at the shortest strap length and was shocked to find that it wasn't adjustable, IN ANY WAY???? With a sad face & a heavy heart, I took it back to my local store to return it. Booooo!
I love my Lulus; I'm raising 3 Lulu Lovers, (1 runner girl, 1 runner/weight lifting boy, & 1 dancer girl) and this was my first Lulu-Letdown! Not-so-bad I guess?

Very supportive bra
This sports bra is very supportive and reliable. This bra is known for being difficult to put on, but this bra has proved to be comfortable after the first couple of wears. Just be patient, you're missing out on a wonderful bra! Although if you do low impact sports or don't need as much support, this bra may not be the best purchase compared to the other bras out there. Good luck!

This got me through the NYC marathon chafe-free!
I've struggled over the past few years to find a good sports bra that provides great support, is flattering (ie. it does not give me uni-boob or completely flatten me out) and doesn't lend itself to any chafing even when wearing a running back-pack and sweating it out for 26.2 miles. I'm really glad the folks at my local Lulu talked me into this! I'm typically a bra size 32-34 B or Lulu size 6 and I got the 34C in this and I'm pretty sure I could not have fit into anything smaller. Based upon my experience, if you are a solid/larger B cup, you may want to consider trying the C. When you first put it on, it is SNUG and you basically have to manually put your boobs into position. However, after you have it on for a few minutes it goes from too-snug to comfy and you feel ready for just about anything. As an added bonus, it also gives you great cleavage...

I am a 34-36 C, 66" tall, 160 lbs. I purchased a 36-C Bitty Bracer. This bra was exceptionally difficult to put on -- it appears to have been made for someone shorter than me -- and wildly uncomfortable once I had it one. It was difficult to take a deep breath, and the compression was painful, neither of which are conducive to a decent cardio-vascular workout. I couldn't even bend over to stretch without gasping. The cups loosened some (molded to me) in the 30 minutes during which I was able to tolerate jogging in it, making it more comfortable around my chest, but the crushing that my shoulders took never let up. I tried to put it back on later the same day, looked in the mirror, and the fit was entirely unflattering. Even I lost sufficient weight to make the fit less "contorting" (which would likely reduce the efficiency of motion control), the shoulder crushing was just too much. Unfortunately, I am well past the 2-week return period.

not supportive even suffocate already
I have to buy LLL online since there's no store in my country. I've excited about this bra. I've read all the reviews, measured my size very carefully, be aware of how to put my girls in and the way it is supposed to fit knowing that it's impossible to change or return.
Still, I am very confused.
I got a 32B according to LLL size chart. When I put the bra on, it's very tight - as it's supposed to be. My cleavage shows - not in a flattering way.. (I'm a small-medium bust girl so this never really happened to me in any other bra). I ran for an hour hoping that it will mold on me and probably my uniboob problem will go away. It got a bit bigger which give me some room to breath more easily but my uniboob is still there.
After all this it seems like I've got a size that is too small right? but the thing is this bra is not supportive at all. When I first put it on -- my girls bounce like crazy when I jump. When it's molded - my grils still bounce. May be it is too big that's why it doesn't provide enough .. but wait.. it gives me such cleavage so that shouldn't be the case... right?!
So now I'm confusing. Is it too big or too small ? Or if I try a cup bigger, may be those problems will be solve? What's your suggestion LLL?
I want to love it so bad. Love the fabric, very smooth and moisture wicking. I'm sure the band is the right size. feel comfortable with that part but not the cups.
Feel bad since I have to pay for someone to ship it from the state to asia for me. Returning is too complicated plus I remove the tag plus it's the most expensive bra I've every bought.

More for boobie people
I'm a 32 B. I tried it on and it was so tight, that it was hard to get over my body. Now in the video and the store associates it says that it starts off tight and then stretches out as you move and work out. I felt very suffocated when I had it on like my boobs were being pushed into my chest. I feel as though this might be better bras for bigger chested people cause it really holds them in. I do like the material and the look of it

Take care of the ladies!
I really like this bra. I use it for running and it is snug but I prefer that. I found this runs true to my regular bra size.
