Ebb To Street Bra
Love This Bra -- Now Why Can't I Buy More?
I had reconstructive surgery and can't wear an underwire for a year and probably won't need to ever again. I am now a 32B (maybe closer to an A) and needed a supportive bra to restrict breast movement of the girls, and so I bought a size 4 in the store to wear 24/7 along with other no-wire bras. (For reference, I am 5'4" and 108 lbs. My exercise is generally hiking and long walks in a sandy river bed with my dogs.) I am usually a 6 in bras, but the 4 fits well and there is enough coverage and support for my little girls, and it does give me a little cleavage where there was none before.
I saw this on the web site a couple of times in WMTM, but it was sold out of every size each time I clicked on it. I imagine the East Coast gets to it first, or maybe I don't get up early enough, or maybe the greedy sellers on eBay snatch it up just so that they can double the price and list it on eBay. This bra is on eBay, but I refuse to pay some seller $80 for it. I did find one size 4 in the store, but they only had the one.
Please bring this bra back for sale, Lulu. I would buy every color if you do bring it back.

I am in love with this bra!! It makes your boobs look better than a pushup bra, I wouldn't really wear it if I had to jump around a lot as it is pretty low cut but I wear this instead of an everyday bra. Amazingly comfortable, love the thick banded bottom. You should definitely size up, I wear a 32DDD and I find that the 10's fit me the best.
The only bummer is that I can't find this in stores at all anymore :(
LULU please bring this back!!!!

Love this bra!!!
This bra is SO pretty and sexy. I found it at the outlet and bought 3. I normally wear a 6 in lulu bras, but the 12 worked for me. If a 10 had been available at the outlet, I would have tried it, but it was not. I am sure the 10 would be perfect. I have tried this bra on in my normal size, but it was way too small. Even an 8 was too small. Weird. For reference, I am 5'2", 108 lbs, and I wear a 34D in VS. I don't plan to wear this for workouts, as it is not terribly supportive. I wear it with everyday outfits and it is super comfortable.

Fits small in some areas, TTS in others
Let me preface this review by saying that this bra was of interest to me for daily wear at home, on the days I'm lounging at home and don't wear a bra. Looking at the pictures online, I knew I wouldn't feel comfortable working out in public in it.
I wear a 30 or 32 band size, and small B cup. My breasts rarely pop out of anything, but they popped out of this bra. I tried my normal 4 and there was not a lot of front coverage at all. The triangles of material were SO tiny, much smaller than depicted. I felt like I was going to have a nip slip at any time. That being said, the band portion of the bra felt great. The 6 fit better around the chest (appropriate amount of coverage but still lots of cleavage) but was big around the band.
At the end of the day, I still chose to buy this in a 6, despite the nonoptimal band fit, because I was looking for a comfy bra that I could wear instead of going braless. I have no doubt that this won't last long, as I expect that band will stretch and get even bigger with wear.

i haven't bought this yet but will be very soon, i was so surprised when i tried it on that it actually fit and had enough coverage. I am a 32D so I figured I would need an 8 or a 10 but those were actually too big so a size 6 is just right. the band is not as tight as the power Y bra and it is much stretchier, probably not enough support to do a lot in, maybe some barre and just around the house. Even if you have a large chest at least try this on because it might work for you!

Love this bra. I stayed TTS with a 6 (just shy of 5'9, 140lbs). Coverage and support is definitely low, but I'm quite slight up top (32B) so it works perfectly for me. And I love that it's low cut! Tried the 8 in the store to see what the difference was - ultimately it just offered more coverage, which I could see working if you're chestier than I am :)
I've worn this for circuit training and cardio and it feels amazing (chestier girls might not get the coverage/support they want for anything that involves jumping). Looking forward to more colors (and replenished stock for the black - can't find it in my size).
All in all, love it - thanks lulu!
Really looking forward

very comfortable bra
I am a size 34A and prefer sports bras with less coverage and support. I'm very flat - the girls don't move much even without a bra. My main reason for wearing a sports bra is just to have an extra layer between the girls and the outside world, in case my top gets a little see-through when sweaty.
That said, I thought this bra fit the bill perfectly. The fabric is so soft and stretchy, without any annoying seams that could cause chafing. I did not need to size up like many people, probably because I'm so flat. I am 5'6" and 133 pounds and took a size 6 (same as my Free to Be size). I initially tried a 10 and then an 8 because of the reviews and even an ed in-store recommended sizing up. But the 6 proved to be the best fit - snug, but not tight. Love this bra, sad to see it sold out in my size online - will have to check the stores for more colors!

most comfortable bra
this is the most comfortable bra, mostly because it does not have the band underneath that digs in. It just applies enough pressure to offer just enough support (I'm 32C). It doesn't dig in or scratch. Size up though. I'm usually a 4-6 in everything and I was an 8 in this one. When I tried on the 4 and 6 I thought it was a terrible design. Then I tried the 8 and it was perfect. It's light and unnoticable. It's a bra for people who hate bras (such as myself). They are all sold out in larger sizes now - please bring back larger sizes and more colours!

good for everyday-for the flat chested
I took interest to this sports bra because I wanted something comfortable for everyday, but not super bulky or "generic sports bra" shaped. This bra is cut in a V so it works perfectly for under my baggy t-shirts with low cut necks, as well as tank tops. I am very flat chested (32 B) and this bra gives me some cleavage which is pretty nice for me. Size up! I normally wear a 4 in anything lulu, but I needed a 6. I would say this bra is great for us smaller chested women, but if you have bigger boobs don't count on them staying in the cups. It's very comfortable, but I won't even wear this bra to work out because I'm scared my boobs won't stay in it if I start moving around too much. I have the charcoal colour and mint green, but I noticed that the removable padding on the mint green bra shows through the fabric. This isn't a huge deal because I'm wearing it under a shirt, but you'd think for the price they could have fixed that.

Love this bra for daily wear
While I would never wear this bra to work up a sweat, I do love it for daily wear. I have it on right now and wore it to work for the first time today. The material is soft, and the straps don't dig into my shoulders. You may have a lot of cleavage in this bra. I did size up a size as many other reviewers have also noted. I'm a 32D and wear size 6 in the Energy and All Sport Bra. A size 6 would have worked, but I wanted to keep the ladies a little more under control. Personally, this bra wouldn't provide enough support while working out because I like to keep my ladies locked down, but it's great for lounging and weekend-wear, which is exactly why I bought it! Thanks Lulu... more colors, please!
