Ebb To Street Bra
comfortable but not functional!
This bra is extremely comfortable and perfect for casual wear. However, I can't use it for yoga, pilates or any other type of physical activity due to the lack of support. I had to size up for the right fit.

excellent everyday bra
Love this bra! It is perfect to wear as an everyday bra as the wide band provides support and the adjustable straps allow for a perfect fit. I have also found this bra to provide enough support for low impact exercise, like yoga and climbing. However, due to the low cut front I see this more as a comfortable bra to wear under T-shirts. Straps work perfectly with racer-back tanks!
While other reviews suggest you size up, I tried on my normal size 6 and found the fit comfortable and very flattering. If possible I would suggest you try on in a store, depending on your chest size this bra may not provide enough coverage.

Decent Bra, but arrived defective
I own several ebb to street bras, as well as the hybrid that came out a little while ago with the deeper plunge and criss cross back (my preference of the two). When this bra arrived I expected it to be the same as the other ebb to street bras I owned, but it came without the triangle cup inserts. So not only is it a little revealing (hope the gym isn't cold!), but it doesn't offer the same support. I contacted a live educator and they said my solutions were to mail it back and exchange it if it was still in stock, or return it all together. Super disappointed I can't be mailed replacement cups, and since I removed the tags thinking I was buying something I know fits, I am stuck with a defective bra.

I thought this bra was super cute, fit comfortably. Once I actually wore it doing yoga, my breast popped out. Yes, THAT was fun. Boob hanging out of the bra in class. Way too little coverage to actually hold anything in. Once size up was way too loose in the ribs. Such a a shame... PLEASE make more bras with adjustable straps!!! Hopefully some that your breasts stay IN.

Perfect traveling bra!
Love this BRA!! The other reviews are completely accurate when they say to SIZE UP... I usually wear a sz 6 sometimes an 8 in lulu bras - I read the reviews and ordered an and a 10. I tried the 8 on first and it fit and was comfy - I almost didnt try on the 10 - I am glad I did as it covered a little better and passed the t-shirt test. I could have gotten away with the 8 but the 10 for me offered better coverage. For reference I wear a 34C.

Bad idea to order online
I'm a 34D with small bone structure.
I wear a 4-6 in all lulu tops. I ordered an 8 in this bra and it was too small (I think?). It felt ok (snug but not super tight, with the straps at the longest setting). It made my boobs look like strangled triangular puff pastries. I tried on a few tops over it, which made the boobage look as if it were bound in an ace bandage, but with a very visible deepV seam (odd with any contrasting neck line).
I need bras to have some padding for shaping, but i don't want them to make my breasts appear any larger. I thought this was the perfect solution to wear to the office, to the trail, to the yoga studio. I hoped this could replace my hideously-thick-strapped cheapo Genie Bras (which give a great shape, but are too conspicuous under yoga tops)... it doesn't.
I love that there are no spine-splitting clasps, but putting the strap slider hardware in back (rather than front) isn't good; they always hurt when doing asanas on one's back (plow, shoulder stand), so i try to avoid them.
Also, the blush color isn't as nude as I had hoped. It shows brightly through any light-colored top.
It's sad that Lulu stores never seem to have a full size run of bras, so it looks like I'll have to shop elsewhere to find something better :(

this is probably my fav lulu sports bra, and i own a lot of lulu! i actually got this in 2 more colors since the last time i ordered it about a year ago. it's super comfortable and seamless, and totally gives me some nice cleavage without feeling like the girls are gonna fall out. i ordered this bra TTS unlike many other reviewers... I find that I'm normally an 8 (32d, 5'9" 145# pounds with athletic lats shoulders and traps). I do tend to order the 6 in the Free to Be bra though

Great fabric but not so great for the well endowed
I love the fabric of this bra and I also like the straps. The fabric is comfy and supportive and would be great for a Saturday afternoon around the house. And, I especially like the wide band around the bottom.
However, the triangles are far too small for the well endowed lady. I wear a 32D bra at AP and VS. I ordered this bra in a size 8 and a size 10 and neither size worked. This bra cut diagonally across the middle of my chests and made very obvious like across them as well. I'd love to keep this bra, but I just cannot handle the awkward lines.
Lulu, please make this bra with slightly larger triangles!

Great Bra but runs Really Small!
Love this bra but I would try on before buying. I wear a 6 or 8 in all lulu tops/bras. I tried on the 8 in this and was busting out. I had to size up to a 10. I have never bought a 10 in anything lulu. Once I got my correct size, it fit great. Looks great and is really comfortable. Really flattering. I wear for everyday use though. I don't know how functional it would be as a sports bra.

I've had a really hard time finding my size in Lulu bras. It seems to always be different. I took a chance after reading some reviews and ordered a size 8, which is the same size as another Lulu bra that I have that fits well. The 8 was too smaLl though, I had to loosen the straps all the way and it hurt my torso. I'm a 34 C. I'm returning the item for a size 10, which will hopefully work. I wish Lulu was more consistent and clear with the way their bras fit.
