Rated 4 out of 5 by Adge80 Perfect bra, strange sizing
I wanted this bra to wear around the house and for lounging around on weekends. Based on reviews, I ordered two sizes up since consistently fit seemed to be an issue. I have a larger chest and wide rib cage and figured if many others need to go up two sizes then I definitely will. Unfortunately the bra is way too big and will have to be returned. It puckers all around the underarms and overall is quite loose. I think I would have been true to size in this bra or maybe one size up for a comfy fit. I ordered the light pink colour so maybe the strange sizing is only related to other colors? Regardless, the bra is very flattering and the light pink is a great colour as it hides well under white tops. Lulu PLEASE bring back more colors and sizes in this bra... I'm so sad to see the pink is gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jgyoga Excellent sport and every day bra
I love this bra! The material is wonderful. No chafing seams, lays flat, soft enough to not dig in anywhere, but strong enough to provide support and hold its shape. Easily worn with sports wear for workouts and also under t-shirts and every day clothing. The only tiny drawback would be the very thin straps, which could dig in with a heavier chest, but where they sit and with the crisscross I don't notice them at all personally. I found it true to size (size 8, 32 D). The light pink color looks great under whites as well. Will get more colors as they become available! LOVE it! Please keep this one a staple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by missy13 please make a staple
i love this bra, i just received it and, OH MY GOD. it is perfection. i did not have problems with sizing like some other people thankfully, and for a sports bra it acts sort of like a push up n my body. I don't really like normal bras as i find them extremely uncomfortable, so this bra is perfect for me
it's cute, it's soft. really no complaints here at all, unless you don't keep it around, and get more colours. thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by megamama can't take it off
I was looking for a bra that I could wear all day and be ready to hop on my bike, go to an exercise class or generally move. I wanted something comfortable, unrestricted, and still didn't flatten me out. This is the best bra! I have shape, the low cut is sort of sexy, and it is supportive enough for exercise with low impact. (I wouldn't wear it running.) I'm a 32C/34B and the size 8 is great. If you are smaller, you could probably do a little more impact in this. The wide band lays flat enough - not perfect but I can't feel it so it's great. I think I could sleep in this thing and my husband even thought it was cute. Score.
I can't take it off and plan to buy more!

by HotYogi25 I love how sexy I look and feel!
I tried this bra before and sadly because it was too small even after sizing up I returned it. I'm a size 6 in pants and shirts, but choose to size up to an 8 for bras in the Free to Be bras (my go to bra) despite my tiny chest (32A cup) I just like the little extra room around the torso. When I sized to an 8 this bra was still too small and just compressed everything I had.
When I noticed more pretty colors come out in this bra I started to covet it and decided to take the plunge one more time, but this time at size 10. It does feel silly to size up to a 10 at my size at 118lbs body, but this style of bra I needed to. Even the educator on the phone was surprised of such a large size up, but that was my opinion in my experience. Once I did that everything looked soooooo good. My small chest looked larger with the shape of the cups. The part that goes around the torso is so slimming, it almost makes you look more slim and toned. The straps are really comfy and the material is quite soft.
I finally tested it in hot yoga last night and I couldn't stop staring at myself in the mirror admiring the bra. I'm really impressed that something could 'envelope' my chest to make it look larger (in a good way) and nothing feel uncomfortable while I do all my twistiest poses in yoga. Nothing fell out or peaked out even upside down ;)
Now that I've figured out my correct size for this bra I will most definitely be buying more =)
I highly recommend sizing up almost two sizes, even with a thinner body and small chest I was too compressed with sizing up one. But that might be my preference of not being suffocated with only sizing up one size. Those with a large chest that are having a hard time with this bra and are complaining about their girls falling out should probably ready the description, its for A/B cup size, just in case people were wondering. =)

Rated 4 out of 5 by yogitime Very cute BUT my ladies are bursting out!
I tried this bra on at Lulu store today in size 4...and while it was very cute and comfy, my boobs felt like they were bursting out!!
Just as a reference, I am very petite (5'1" and 90 lbs). I wear 32A bra and size 2 or 4 LL sports bra (depending on the style).
The circumference of the bra hugs my body perfectly, but the cups seem to be small!
I didn't try on size 6, but perhaps I will next time I stop by a LL store.
If you have larger chests, this bra may not work for you.
Also, while on the description this bra is designed for yoga, I don't think it's appropriate to wear to yoga (unless you want your ladies to burst out) It's very low cut so it definitely shows a lot of cleavage.
While men are generally non-existent in most yoga classes, the yoga classes that I attend usually have several men in them. So I won't feel comfortable wearing this to class.
But this is a very cute bra for "to and from" activities because it is very comfy and cute

Rated 4 out of 5 by ezsl Great, but sizing...oh boy!
I'm not sure how I went from a size 2 (for my clothes in general) to a size 6 in this style bra top??!! I originally ordered this Ebb To Street Bra in a size 4 (I have tried a size 2 in tanks and bras before, and I can barely breathe - wayt too tight), color heathered green. I put it on right away to see the fit and wow, it was way too tight. I am a very slim size 2 woman, 5'10" tall. I am a small B cup. But this bra made me look like I was a minus A cup. I mean, it flattened me so much, it was very uncomfortable and I had to take the bra off right away. I can't stand fabrics that are so tight and compress you way too much, when it's not necessary. I don't know how women with D and DD cups wear stuff this tight.
Anyway, I returned it immediately and ordered a size 6. It fits much better, so I am keeping it. But Lululemon needs to get their sizing consistent. I can't be a size 2 regular clothing and wear a size 6 in lulu bras because the compression is way too severe and unnecessary. I know we need to wear tight, body hugging and stretchy clothing for working out, yoga, running, etc...but there is a difference between nice comfortable form fitting stretch and a tight stretch where fabric is just tight, uncomfortable and stretch is not helping at all.
Also, Lululemon, could you please make some bras and tanks (especially tanks) with sewn on bra pads??? I am honestly tired of taking them out before wash and inserting them back in. I like the thin removable pads because of no nipple showing, but would love them to be permanently attached to my tank or bra. At least offer one of two styles. I think women would love them! Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by linze Snug and Stretchy
I sized up from a 4 to a 6 after reading the reviews and i'm glad I did. I wear a 30d in regular bra size, and the 6 hugs them in tight. I took out the inserts to chill the cleavage action a little. The stretchy fabric makes this one a great lounge around bra, and I like that I can just wear it under a tank and be ready to go straight to barre class from work. I took away one star because I do agree with some of the other reviews that the thin straps need occasional adjusting so they don't get uncomfortable from being in one place too long.

This bra makes my bosoms look fantastic. I had to go up a size but it was almost like a push-up for me. Love the simplicity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yogalife So Comfortable!!!!
This is my favorite sports bra to wear! I have the yellow one i feel it is brighter and more appealing in person. It is super stretchy but still fits very well, I would suggest getting this bra!
