I went to the store and actually tried on the bra. I tried on a size 4 and it felt great! I am 5'0, 105lbs and wear size smalls. I wore it for one of my crossfit competitions and noticed that there wasn't alot of 'stretching' room around the ribcage when doing my workouts. It was too tight and by the end of the day it was really starting to irritate my skin. This was my first lulu sports bra so I guess I didn't know better. I would recommend going one size up since these run small. :(

Breathe for energy (bra)
I really love the energy bra. Finally something that fits nicely, holds all in place without causing a "mono boob" and doesn't rub you the wrong way. Every season there are new colours, so it never get's boring.
The quality is superb, as after washes and washes the shape, size and colour stays the same.
For bigger breasted girls a definite go to item!

Cute and functional
I'm a 32A, and though this bra is advertised for the "well endowed," I love it! It is supportive but not to restricting, the straps don't cut into my shoulders like with most sports bras, and it is adorable. I haven't had it for long but I anticipate it will hold up well. It is my current go-to bra.

Love this bra
I love this bra, it is super comfy and the only lulu bra that seems to work for me. It doesn't give me a weird shape under tops like some have and I don't struggle as much getting it off and on as I do with some sports bras I own. I'm shocked people reviewed it as cutting in. I'm between a 6-8 in tops and I went with a size 8 as I didn't want to struggle getting it off and on. I'm 5''7 147 lbs 32DD and find this super comfy.
My only suggestion is that the cups move around slightly but I have this issue with all the inserts. In the tops the inserts sometimes show a line probably because I need a larger SZ insert for coverage and maybe the insert pocket a bit smaller so it wouldn't move as much? Overall I love it and will be getting another soon!

I am 5'2 116 lbs and have a 32dd chest. I ordered this bra in size 4 and it fits perfectly! It fits great in the waist and provides enough coverage for my chest. Leaves a little cleavage but nothing too revealing. I have purchased this bra in probably 8 different colors and will be buying more. I have worn and washed them several times and they hold their shape and hold up well!

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?

Nice bra but inconsistent sizing
I have been a massive Lululemon fan for years, but never purchased any of the sports bras due to the price. Being small chested (34A-B) I couldn't justify $59 for a bra when I don't require much support. I love the back of the Energy Bra however, so thought I'd order the black online in a 6, which is my normal Lulu top size, sometimes a 4. It was so tight! Had to go into a store to exchange for an 8. While there, I tried a few other colours and found a 6 to fit in some and an 8 in others. I would advise trying these bras instore if you can to get the right size, as they definitely differ.
