Very cute bra
I love the back of this bra! Its fits well and provides good support. I mainly use this for yoga or barre class. For reference, I am 5'3", 120lbs, and am a 32DD bra and wear a size 6 in this.

I don't always wear sports bras...
but when I do, my favorite is the energy bra... I'm generally a fan of tanks with built-in support for running (energy tank is great too), but early spring here in NY is typically too cold for running in just a tank, so this bra layers great under tees, and gives me plenty of support (34C). Also, I think the straps will be cute under a few unlined tanks I'll be wearing this summer. The vintage pink is a nice pop of color. I just bought savasana camo online and can't wait to get it!

Own many of these
The straps in the back really help support, my go to bra for running, yoga and bootcamps. The colors are always great and look super cute with the tanks.

Not going anywhere
This bra definitely gives good coverage...in both support from harder-impact sports, and modesty. I don't have any issues with being seen in a public workout situation, and I certainly don't have any fears that too much is being revealed.
The straps are designed at a good angle, so that nothing gets in the way when you are doing yoga/pilates/weight-lifting. I've never heard those annoying snaps (you know, the ones that are made when you shift your shoulders, when part of the fabric curls up), and have never had any pinching.
I've had this bra for a few months now (an earlier version, in a different colour). The bra has held up well, with no issues in wear and tear. The support its still very firm for a sports bra that has held 36 C breasts during dressage (horse-riding), sailing, pilates, running, yoga, and other cardio/weight-training.
The lines are also very flattering underneath sports shirts/jackets/sweaters.
One thing that I would like to say (unspecific to this product), is that I have heard a lot of flack about the quality of lululemon in the past year. I've been buying about 3-5 products from the company every year, for the past 7 years (which range from socks and headbands/ponytails to the basic sportswear of bras/capris...all the way to specific pieces for bikram and running). I haven't had issues in durability with my products, no matter what year I have purchased them. I play hard with my pieces, and frankly do not treat them with any special deference when doing laundry (or wearing the pieces more than one time in a row before washing, so long as it wasn't a particularly perspiration-heavy workout). I don't have colour runs, overly-thin fabric, etc.
I'm not sure if I have just gotten lucky, or if other people have had the same experience that I have had, but Lululemon has upheld its promises to me, as far as I am concerned. I'm a loyal customer, and plan on continuing to purchase in the years to come.

Hands down the best!!!
This is hands down the best sports bra ever!!! Love the detail in the straps, it fits true to size, extremely comfy, versatile, looks cute under other tops AND I am a 38DD and this gives me more support than the Ta Ta Tamer.

Favorite Sports Bra I've Ever Owned
LOVE this sports bra! I own one in white and the back detailing looks so cute under tank tops. I know it's in the light support category but I'm between a B and a C cup and I'd classify it as more of a medium support, it keeps me nice and supported during my 45 minute cardio sessions perfectly fine. I highly recommend it!

Sports bra with pretty back detail
I wanted to just get this bra just because of the back detail. I already own several supportive sports bras but none looked as pretty as this in the back. I was unsure if I should get the 4 or the 6. Depending on the item, I can wear a 4 or a 6 in Lululemon. I'm petite 5'2" but a 30ddd. The run times tank size 4 fits me perfectly but the on scoop neck, the 4 is a tiny bit too small so I wear a 6. On this bra, the straps are not adjustable so I went with the 4. When I got the item at home, I realized a probably should have gotten a 6 as this is supposed to be a light support bra, and the 4 gives me medium to high support. Unfortunately it was final sale and an online order so I was stuck with it. It was too tight in my chest area but the back fit fine. The straps are the right size too. I winded up removing the pads as they were not covering the whole bra anyway and I needed the extra room. The bra fits so much better once I removed the pads. If the bra is too tight, I would definitely recommend removing the pads and seeing if it fits better. On a separate note, I was confused when I saw the pads from the bra as they said size 2 and my bra was a size 4. This is my first time buying a bra from here but is it typical to have a smaller pad size in the bras? I never had this experience with the tanks before. It doesn't matter as I am not going to use the pads with this bra but I was just wondering.

I was very deliberate in the purchase of this bra. I wanted to choose a bra I would just love and thought that the energy bra in antidote would fit the bill perfectly. Very disappointed. I read many reviews before buying, of which many mentioned sizing issues. I took this to mean the reviewers found the bra ill-fitting, not true to size. What I realize now, however is that the issue is not just a matter of size but of comfort as well. I am usually a four or six in lulu and went with the six in this bra. I wore it today for the first time and while it wasn't too tight (in fact I started thinking maybe I should have sized down) it was quite, quite uncomfortable. Something about the seams seemed to pinch and it was missing that light silky feeling. I was actually very surprised by this. All I could think about was getting home and getting it off.
I give it a three because it wasn't the worst in the world. I'm not going to throw it in the garbage. But it will be the last bra I reach for and the first one to come off.

Lovely but snug
After great luck with a Flow Y bra from WMTM, I'd been eyeing this beauty and finally caved in and bought it. It is just as lovely as I expected, but it's quite a bit more snug than the Flow Y in the same size. The back was too snug to be flattering in that size, and I say this as a rather petite-on-top woman. I sized up and it looks great in the back, but there is a slight bit of extra fabric in the front (kind of where you see it on the model in the pretty purple color). Anyway, it was not enough to keep me from buying it, but worth considering if you are between sizes and can't try this on. I don't intend to use it for anything high-impact, so the bigger size is perfect.

Nt bad but issues w sizing is alil disappointing
Having most lululemon tops at either size 6 or mostly 8.
This is my first lululemon sports bra, love the colours, but the sizing is alittle dissappointing. im a 34D, i took a size 8 for this energy bra,
overall, its is small. Spilling of the boobs, top, side.
The band underneath is tight and supporting but not digging in, so i think its ok for a size 8 on the band, but the cups are just too small. in the end, i would have to remove the inner cups, minimizing the spilling. Hope i will get it washed till it slightly loose to fit me better. As size 10 will definitely be loose on the band so im kinda stuck =( maybe would try the All Sports Bra the next purchase.
Would be happier to have the old sizing back as i tried them before and they fit really well.
