This is my first energy bra, so Im not sure on standard size. I usually wear 6 on my Y bras, but for some reason the raspberry bra I bought was too tight. I will have to size up on this one. Other than sizing issues, this bra is great support! I am a smaller breast size, so not sure how it would go for others. It gives you the right tightness so it holds everything in the right place. I usually use this bra for pilates/HIIT (high intensity interval training) so, in my opinion, it is good for both classes.

I have 5 Energy bras and they are the best sports bra out there...However, it appears the sizing of Lululemon has changed drastically.
I just got my Raspberry Energy sports bra in the mail and was so excited! However, it is so tight that I am suffocating in it. The bra itself just barely fit over my head and the straps and side seams are digging into my armpits and back. I ripped off the tags, so now I'm stuck with a bra that only could only fit a child. What is going on in the Lululemon factory! Why change measurements!?

Great for bigger breasts
Ok, I got one on sale in bright blue and one at regular price in raspberry. While both colours are great and the back details are adorable, it makes me look flat chested. I am normally 32C or 32D. While I appreciate the support I am getting, I also need to look sexy in my bras and thus this is not gonna work for me. Raspberry is going back. Also, lots of people are wondering about the difference of raspberry, Paris, and glo colours. My favourite is Paris as it has soft purple mixed with pink ( mauve pink) shade. Glo is a wonderful color for lovers of neon. Raspberry is a rather dull color perfect in textured clothes.

Excellent bra for all adventures-I like to hop around do weights, run and jump up and down-all in one workout. This keeps me intact.

Love the style and support. Fits tight.
I love everything about this bra except how tight the fit. The support is awesome. I wear it under everything. I always order a size 10, I would recommend ordering a size up.

Fantastic material, soft, fit excellent. It holds everything in place perfectly. It is a little snug than my other 8's I agree with other reviewers. So you may choose to size up. However I kept the size 8, but have ordered the 10 to decide.

Excellent customer service
This is a fantastic bra! Exxcept (and I really, really don't like to complain) I had only worn the bra for about 2 weeks and noticed the thread coming out and continuing horizontally across the back of the bra. However, upon informing Lululemon of my problem, they came up with a reasonable solution; I definitely recommend this bra and feel much more content purchasing future products knowing that I can be confident that the company backs their quality.

Not for DD+
I own a couple of tata tamers in 36DD (I'm a 36DD-DDD) and like the way they fit me. I tried this bra and there's just no way it has the same support for high impact aerobics. I tried the 12, which was too loose in the band, then a 10, which would have been perfect except I had uniboob and the removable cups were floating around as if they were 3 sizes too small. I jumped and the girls flopped around. So this was a no go for me.
For reference I'm 5'4, 190 lbs, curvy/muscular and carry weight more in my lower half and boobs but have a smaller waist. I wear a 10-12 in tanks.

great bra - even for bigger busts
I love this bra and it keeps me in place for spinning, general workouts and even running. I'm between a C and D and between 36 and 38 - size 12 fit perfectly - a little snug but it molds a bit to you. WAY more comfortable than the ta-ta tamer which is a little snug for me even in a 36D.

Good support, beautiful back!
This is one of the few sports bras from Lulu because it looks cute with the beautiful straps in the back, but still provides enough support and coverage for my larger chest during higher impact sports, e.g. running, kickboxing, etc. Although it is rated for lighter support, I agree that it provides more of a medium support and even more when paired with the energy tank with the built-in bra. For reference, I ordered a size 8 and I am 5'7", 160 lbs, 34DD-34DDD, and I wear a size 10 in normal tops, but I always order a size down in bras to make sure I have the support on the ribcage.
