Stylish and supportive, but inconsistent sizing
I'm a 32B and wear a size 4 in all Lulu bras. I own 2 Energy bras, but have tried on countless others that were too tight around the ribcage. When the bra does fit correctly, it provides great support, sits comfortably through medium intensity workouts, and looks great under everything from racerbacks to open back tops. Unfortunately, it's difficult to tell when there is a sizing inconsistency without first trying on the bra, since the ones I've tried look identical in size to the naked eye. Please resolve this issue, Lulu, and I won't hesitate to pick up more colors!

My go-to Lulu bra
Contrary to some of the previous reviews, this is one of the only Lulu bras that I can wear where the straps fit me just right while also giving me good support. For reference, I am 4'11", 30c chest and wear a size 4 in this style. So for you other petite girls out there, this is your bra!

Totally painful! I am a 32B and got a size 4. I have a bunch of other Lululemon sports bras in size 4 and I love them all. This one on the other hand cuts off my circulation and makes it almost impossible to work out. This very sadly sits at the bottom of my drawer. Would not recommend.

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 !
