Cut into me!!
So I wore this for about 5 hours before hitting the gym and at the end of the day, I was very displeased to find my sides in so much pain! The top of the band where the seams are cut into me and left some pretty deep marks :( I'm a 32B and not sure if a 4 was too small and I should have sized up?

I'm actually really upset that I spent $48 on this bra. I was unsure if I needed a 10 or a 12. I tried it on in the Hyde Park (Tampa) store and asked the salesperson for help. She told me that it was meant to fit very tightly. I got it home and wore it on a 5 mile jog. My back and shoulders were very painful after wearing it -- not sure if it's the design or if it's too tight. I shop in the store a lot, and asked to exchange it for a bra that wouldn't hurt my back. A new salesperson recommended the new Sports Bra, which I love. What upsets me, is that they would not allow me to exchange it because it had been worn. I would never have known that it wouldn't have worked, if I wouldn't have worn it. The Return policy is ridiculous. The only positive is the strappy back on the Energy Bra is really pretty. It's a shame that it hurts to wear while exercising.

I only have one other sports bra from Lululemon, and wearing that bra is like being strapped into a torture device. So, needless to say, I was extremely hesitant to purchase another sports bra without trying it on in a store first. I am so glad that I went out on a limb and bought this bra. I got the green camo color and absolutely LOVE it. It is so comfortable and looks adorable on. Now, I hardly want to wear anything else! (Seriously... its bad...) I'm going to need to buy another one for sure. I do a lot of cross training and running and this bra holds up during both.

Great All Around Bra!
I am so thankful for all the reviews on this item. I am a 6 in most things lululemon, and based off the reviews I sized up to a 8. I am so glad I did, it fits perfect! I know a size 6 would have been too tight in the back lat area.
For Reference I am 5'4" 130lbs and 34C.

Support & style
I absolutely looove the energy bras - Great support without compromising style (so hard to find)! I recently bought a few more, but was disappointed to find that after one [delicate] wash, the logo on the white one start peeling off quite badly on all sides. Other than that this bra is great! It is very functional, looks adorable under oversized tanks/open back clothing; it doesn't ride up, and is very comfortable. I would rate it five stars, but the peeling of the reflective logo has me stuck at 4 stars.

I wore this for 30 minutes and it chaffed so much that it's now bloody. Can I return a bra with blood on it?

One bad apple
I have purchased several Lulu energy bras in the past and would not do differently...they are so perfect. I have just recently purchased a Lulu energy bra that has bad padding. Makes me look like I have pointy nipples. I am not happy about this. Unhappy I will have to send it back !

Unsure at first but loving it now.
This was my first LLL purchased and I was unsure what to expect since I have never spent more than $20 on a sports bra. I reviewed the sizing tab, which suggested 6 for 34C. I ordered a 6 and when I received it, the bra was a little tight. However after my first work out, it felt as if loosened up and ever since it fits perfectly. The sports bra definitely 'highlights' the bust without compromising support. I plan on ordering more of these in the future.

Want to love, not for busty gals
I really want to love this bra but it won't work for me. I wear a 34DDD and most of my sweaty activity revolves around Crossfit. I bought this bra knowing it wouldn't work for high impact activities but wanted it for lifting days, hiking, yoga, etc. I purchased the 12 because the girls didn't quite fit into the 10. The coverage is awesome and the bra is very comfortable. The fit is really flattering.
However, the band is too big and has definitely stretched out (which the educator told me it wouldn't do, unfortunately). So now even basic daily wear and movements cause the bra to ride up. I find myself constantly adjusting my boobs back into the bra. So annoying!
I think a few basic changes to this bra could make it PERFECT. A wider band would help it stay in place and help support us bustier gals.
I think it would also be awesome if Lulu would start sizing their bras in cup/band ranges like Moving Comfort (and like the do with the TaTa Tamer). That way the bras could be more tailored and work for a wider range of shapes.

More support than i expected
This bra is my favorite bra I own! This is my first Lululemon purchase and I am so excited to say it went perfectly. The only complaint I have is it is a tad bit snug but that's my fault since I put on a few pounds... oopsie. I am 4'10" with size C boobies and a little wider back from all those lat pull downs :) and I ordered a size 4. It is a little snug but not unbearable and I don't look like a can of biscuits trying to bust out. From the picture I couldn't tell if there was a pad for the bra part. There was the opening pictured but I couldn't tell for sure. The description says light support but my boobies aren't going anywhere even on the treadmill! I will definitely be buying more of these bras very soon!
