Flow Y Bra IV
Well I am so disappointed
For years this has been my go to sports bra. Perfect amount of support and coverage for every type of activity: gym, yoga, hiking, you name it! Until last week I had a good supply, but I noticed that a couple of my well worn favs were looking exactly that; well worn! So I headed into lululemon in hopes of getting another couple colors. What I found was that this bra has changed. And NOT for the better. Let me break it down:
-I found the material to be thinner and it felt cheaper
-the straps have moved in slightly, pushing out that awkward part of skin between boob and underarm (ladies I know you know what I am talking about!)
-the shape of the pad inserts changed, creating a very unflattering square boob.
If this would have been my first time trying on this bra I NEVER would have bought it. I was so disappointed I wanted to burst into tears. I have been wearing, buying, and promoting this style of bra for the better part of 8 years, and I can truthfully say I am done with it. I left the store without purchasing a thing, and will do some investigation on what other options are out there.
I am a yoga teacher, as well as extremely active with out door sports and weight training. Comfort is key. And up until now this sports bra provided me with everything I needed during activity.
I sincerely hope that lululemon hasn't fallen behind on their quality, which is why I so faithfully stuck with them for so long.

My Go To Sports Bra
I rececntly cleaned out my closet and threw away all of my sports bras except these ones! I find it to be very confortable and I like that the straps stay hidden under almost any shirt that I wear. I find that it is supportive enough to run in, but I don't have much to support.

Straps are uncomfortable, unflattering
I purchased this bra about a year ago, my first flow y. I loved the color and when I tried it on in store the size 8 fit was perfect so I took it home. After working out in it (pilates, so def not high impact) the straps were biting into my back. I had also tried the size 10 and found it too big (i'm not large chested at all). I found this to be probably the most uncomfortable and least flattering bra that lulu makes. I tried it again several months later just to see if maybe I was having an off day and no, it's truly uncomfortable, I really don't like this style at all. Sadly wasted money :(

I'm a bra size B34; ordered a size 6 and highly recommend this sports bra for any activity- even running. I ordered this bra online, hesitant about the sizing, but it fits great plus it's adorable. For anyone with small boobs like me, it's worth every penny!

Straps stretched out
I bought two of these about a year ago, and initially they were fine but after infrequent the straps became super stretched out. It is now unwearable because the straps are so long and stretchy that it no longer fits well.

I love the design and the fit. I would highly recommend it but some reason when i wear this and go for a light walk on a treadmeal my armpit seam line area gets swallon :(. That is the only down side of this bra. Is there any way that i can exchange it to a different bra or the same one? I am attaching my swallon area. Hope that is alright. And hopefully get some feedback and some follow up actions. Please and thank you.
I am 5"3 and weight around 53kg. 116ish lbs.
HOWEVER THOUGH, this bra fits so well and so fashion-y. Love it!

loveeeee this bra!!!
THIS IS A GREAT BRA!!!!
I usually am a free to be kind of girl, requiring only light coverage. And I find the energy bra to actually have too much coverage for me.
Even though this bra says medium coverage, it is low enough just to be sexy but has slightly better support than the free to be. I'm so excited to have found my new favorite lulu bra!!
For the record - i own 2 free to be, 1 50 rep bra, 1 energy bra.
Got this in the floral prism design. LOVING IT!

comfortable sports bra
I love this bra! It's so comfortable and very cute to wear. It's my go-to bra and the first one I grab whenever it's clean. I bought a size 6 and I wear a 32C everyday bra. I also own the energy bra (size 6) and the flow bra band is not as tight. I probably could have gotten away with a size 4 but I was nervous since the energy bra is so tight on me. Either way, I love it and would buy again!

come on, lulu!
I think this bra is gorgeous and it gives me wonderful support, however, what's up with the huge seams underneath the arms? You can see the seam I'm talking about (bottom photo above)... it didn't bug me at first, but after wearing the bra for more than an hour (nevermind long runs with it) it digs right into my side. Lulu designers, please consider eliminating or moving this seam to the top of the strap... or eliminating?

I wanted SO BADLY to love this bra. I bought this and Ebb to Street and both were too small. I am a slim, 140lbs 5'10" - and a 34 B. I wear an 8/10 in other Lulu tops. The size 10 bras cut into me and I could not move freely in either one without pinching and TOTALLY flattening my girls out (uncomfortably so). Sadly both bras had to go back. I probably won't try another one. I can't believe that at my body size, I should be ordering a 12. That's crazy.
Lulu, please PLEASE reconsider your sizing. It is very disappointing.
