Booby Bracer (D-E cup)
This is the most supportive and comfortable sports bra out there!!! It starts out tight and gives a little as you wear it in, but stays supportive. I went up a band size, as recommended in reviews, and it was the right way to go! I am a 32DD or 32DDD in everyday bras, but the 34DD works for me! The fit is great because it hugs your body closely and you can wear a close fitting tank over the top with no funky lines. I wear it for running and my cardio dance party class and it is AMAZING!!!!

So Uncomfortable and Not Cute!
This looks and feels weird and foreign on my body (and not in an innovative way). I hate the thin straps what's the point for making this for the bustier women and it's very unattractive. C'mon Lulu - You could do better.
Please Bring back the "Run Pace Bra" It's so comfortable for the bustier women and the cute triangle shape on the back add a nice design feature. I'd love to buy them in every color!

Not worth it
I am 5'3", 135 lbs, with 34 DD breasts. I have a very short torso. I am always looking for a great sports bra, and my Ta-Ta Tamer was starting to let me down in its old age. I decided to invest in the Booby Bracer. Not pleased.
I wore the bra to my fitness classes this morning (a weights class, then a high aerobic class). I kept adjusting the straps to try and pull the bra up. The front is low, especially for someone with a short body, like me. I felt very exposed, and kept pulling my shirt up over the low bustline. I also kept feeling like the straps were about the slide off the sides of my shoulders, as they are placed so wide on the back. They were plenty tight, but just not well-placed. I also became aware of how much thinner this bra is when I kept noticing my nipples in the mirror of my class. This is not usually much of an issue, especially in the Ta-Ta Tamer, which is thicker. All of the jumping around in my fitness class also caused my breasts to shift, of course. But they soon settled in the dreaded uniboob formation. Not. Happy.
Basically, I spent my whole fitness class wishing I had not bought and worn this bra. I am severely disappointed.
Pros: Front adjusting straps, wide band.

Best bra I've ever owned.....after it loosens up
I LOVE this bra, it's honestly amazing. I am 5 foot 4, and 190 pounds.
I am usually a 38D but I thought I would do the 38DD for extra cup room because I find all other sports bras cut into your boobs.
I was shocked that I couldn't breathe in the dressing room, I wanted to put it back on the rack, it made no sense.
But like the tag states, once it warms up, it will form to you, and Lulu didn't lie!
Now when I take my bra off, it actually rolls up because it's formed to my body shape.
My only complaint is that there aren't enough bra clips on the shoulders. I kept moving it up after each consecutive workout because it was getting bigger. But I'm maxed out on eyes for my hooks! If there were a few more eyes, then I would be set because I could keep adjusting, but now I feel a little lost because it's slightly too big now....hmmmm.
But other than that, AMAZING BRA!!!!! :)

I tried this on with high hopes. I got my regular size and the size up at the advice of the sales associate. It was a disaster all around. My usual size wouldn't go on it was so tight and the size above fit so strangely on the sides that it would have been impossible to use. The lack of crossed straps didn't help either. Maybe if I could have crossed those in the back the side fit issue would have been better. Also was not happy that simply because genetics have blessed me with larger breasts that I would have to pay more than those who didn't.

Love the booby bracer bra...need more colors!!!
I've tried several running bras over the years and lulu is the first bra that I don't have to use a sports glide stick with.
I'm 5'7 and weigh 134 pounds. I run 3-4 times a week averaging 25-35 miles.
I bought the black booby bracer size 34DD in the store. It's a little big on the sides but doesn't affect my running. I bought the blue booby bracer size 34D on line and absolutely love the way it fits. I still bounce a little when I run and can adjust the back hooks tighter if I ever feel I need more support.
I wish the booby bracer came in other colors. I'm patiently waiting and constantly checking the website.

Worst bra Lululemon has ever made
I've been wearing the Tatatamer for a while now but am finding it just not supportive enough and I still feel too "booby" when I'm at the gym. So when I saw this bra i ordered it instantly. What a mistake. This bra fit so incredibly bad. It was so tight, my boobs were pushed up so far it was inappropriate. The 34DD in the tatatamer fits great, so naturally I ordered this in the same size, boy was i wrong. And yes I read, your instructions as to how to put it on, doesn't make difference. I respect your design work and what you were trying to do here, perhaps when you have the Booby Bracer II out, you'll have hit the nail on head. If you have a larger chest, i wouldn't recommend buying this bra for $88 without trying it on.

Ladies, this is the first time I have ever run with just 1 sports bra & actually felt like the girls were not bouncing off my chest. Lululemon should make a bigger deal about this bra! I am 5'4" ~ 125lb, wear a 34DD & run 3 miles every other day. I read the reviews & tried on the 36D at the store, but I found the 34DD fit better. I agree with some of the reviews that you feel that there is some spillage because of the structure of the sides of the bra, but once I tightened the bra with the straps it was all better. You just have to pull the girls up. It is tight, but the ability to select the perfect strap tightness is such a relief & it felt so better than the two bra combo! Absolutely amazing!

did not work out for me
I purchased this bra with high hopes....there is no Lulu store where I live so I waited until I was traveling to a city with a store so I could try it on and purchase in store. I have been running for the past 8 years, always with 2 bras and thought I may finally be able to wear only one- I was assured this was the case by the sales person at Lulu's. After trying on different sizes I ended up purchasing my normal size, 36 DD. It felt good at the beginning of my first run, until I hit about kilometer 3 -then it really lost alot of support. I believe if I had of sized down, this bra may have worked for me. But I am not willing to spend another $100 to find out..now am stuck with a bra worn only once, that does not fit properly to support high impact exercise.....very disappointed

Never thought I would see this day..
I'd like to begin by saying THANK YOU LULU!
I've been searching for something to hold up the girls properly for quite sometime. I've always avoided running etc because I could never find a supportive enough bra to handle my girls! (I've tried 3+ sports bras in attempt to conquer the running as well but no luck) I'm 5'10, 145lbs and I'm a 32F so it has been pretty rough looking for a bra that could handle my body type.
My only two suggestions to lulu would be; MORE COLORS and possibly a racerback option or design because this sports bra does look like an actual bra. I would love to see a racerback to make this bra more "sporty."
That is all. Highly satisfied with yet another lulu product. I feel that anyone that did have issues with the fit of this product may want to re-evaluate sizing because I found this product to fit excellently after reading the sizing tips from other lulu fanatics!
