Best sports bra out there
For reference, I am a 36D and have never been able to wear lululemon sports bras because I could never find a fit that was supportive and actually fit my chest. I am a D1 athlete, so constantly searching for the best sports bras I can find. I finally ordered the Energy Bra in a size 8 and it fit perfectly!! I was skeptical at first, but now I don't want to take it off! I just ordered more, they totally beat the Nike and Champion sports bras I usually wear. Way cuter and more supportive without completely mashing the boobs together. One thing I will say is that the removable cups can be a bit annoying if they get bunched up but it's easy enough to fix.

Not the same as they used to be.
This used to be my favourite bra. I have about half a dozen of them. Last year I'd heard that Lululemon had changed the cut but I ordered one in Raspberry anyway. I'm a 34A and I ordered it in my usual size 6. I tried it on and it seemed a bit tight, but I kept it anyway because I loved the colour so much. Anyway, I tried running in it and it gave me chest pains and constricted my breathing. I tried it on again last week, and it's still just as tight as I remember. (What was I expecting to change?) Anyway, I feel like an idiot for keeping it. My old ones are still perfect. If you haven't bought one for a while, consider yourself forewarned.

Best. Bra. Ever.
I love the energy bra. I honestly must own about 5 or 6 of them at this point. They have great support while also being super cute. I like to layer them under racerback tanks so that the cute straps show (105F and CRB's work great for this). I wear my energy bras for lifting and HIIT, and they can take all the crazy movements of squat jumps, KB swings, etc, with ease. I know when I'm wearing this bra that my girls are protected! My husband, who isn't into clothes/shopping/brands AT ALL, even knows what the Lulu omega looks like just because I wear these bras so often. I have washed mine several times each (cold water; hang to dry) and they wash up great. I would recommend trying these (and every other Lulu bra) on in stores before buying, and make sure to try a couple different sizes. The sales reps always want me to try on smaller bras, but I have a built upper body (lats and pecs) and I need something that can accommodate my ribcage. An 8 fits like a glove. For reference, I'm a 36B/34C.

I'm really happy with this bra. I am quite petite with even smaller ta tas and I find it sometimes hard to find a bra that fits me. I still need support, but nothing too much, some bras are too large on my chest or too bulky. I went straight to the Free to Be bra because it is one of the smallest that covers the right amount but still gives support. I am however glad that I tried the Energy bra, I will be sticking to this one for sure! Under a shirt or by itself, the bra is very flattering during my yoga workouts. I like the comfy, but very cute straps in the back and though it is a bit wider than the Free to Be bra, I still don't feel like its too big for me, its perfect. Keep the colors coming!! I am usual size 6 in pants, size 4 in singlet tanks and I size up to an 8 for bras because I don't like it being too tight around my ribs under my chest and the fit is still perfect! I am 5'2.5" 118lbs normal bra 34A.

LOVE! For everyone.
For back story I'm a pretty petite woman, My bra size is 32C (it's what fits nicely and is comfortable) but i'm not a full C. I purchased the camo style in size 4 and it fits perfectly. It's not too tight anywhere, you can see some cleavage when bending over but no matter how you move you don't see anything more than that. The best part: This sports bra doesn't get drenched like others do when working out. It'll feel wet but its not like it's just soaked like other fabrics can! Love that! I can continue to wear it even after working out and nothing hurts! :)

Just bought this bra and I love it! I had the "free to be" and just was not happy but enjoyed the look it in general. This one is just that much better with a similar look to the "free to be" but more coverage and support :)

Comfortable and Supportive
I'm 5'8 and fit a 34 DD.
I ordered a size 10 and it fits like a glove. Its not restricting at all but its tight enough to keep the girls in. The back is beautiful as well. So pleased with this bra, if you're looking for one this is definitely worth buying!

Best sports bra
This is my favorite lulu bra (and favorite sports bra in general). I love the support of this bra, I am a 34C and wear a 6, it fits pretty tight but I wouldn't want it any looser. The straps are great and its very flattering!

Love, but need more colour options
The Energy Bra in my opinion is the best bra Lulu offers for larger chested females like myself. Reference I am a 34D and fit a size 6. I prefer to wear the bra with the pad inserts to give myself a better shape and extra support. I would love to purchase more in this style but lately none of the colour options have caught my eye.
Lulu, please bring in more bright/solid coloured Energy Bras for the Spring/Summer season!

Wish it would have fit better :(
I ordered this online after reading lots of positive reviews. I really liked the design in the back, and am a loyal flow y bra owner so decided to switch it up. I ordered my usual size 6 (for reference 5'5 130lbs). I tried it on and was instantly disappointed. The sides cut into me to the point it was uncomfortable; I do have muscle but I'm not overly muscular so I found this surprising. The front also came down too far for me, maybe it wouldn't be an issue for a bustier person. I also found it somewhat challenging to get on, and very challenging to get off with the way the straps fit in the back. Bottom line is if you have any lat muscle, it'll cut into your sides. I definitely couldn't work out in this. I exchanged it for another one right away. Too bad as it's super cute!
