Free To Be Bra
After having my eye on this bra style I decided to try it out. I loved the design, but unfortunately it did not give me enough coverage and support. I am disappointed with this style but will stick to the energy bra.

Love the style and fit, but so much pilling
I am an avid Lulu buyer, and own a lot of Luxtreme fabric products. I got this bra a few months ago, and love how comfortable it is. I can wear it under anything, and to yoga and it is amazing. What is not amazing is how after being washed only once and worn under regular clothes and to yoga a few times, it is covered in little pills. This is not something I've experienced with my multiple Energy bras. Not really sure why it is happening since they are both Luxtreme? Overall great fit and style but the quality is just lacking for some reason. I want another but don't want to take a chance...

Love this bra!
I tried this bra on in store along with 15+ other bras. I would recommend trying the Lululemon bras on in store if you can. I purchased this in a size bigger (size 8) than what I order in tanks (size 6).
I agree with what other reviews have said; either the waist band on the bra is too tight or too loose.
I got this bra in a size 8 because back fat is easily created (where the material cross, not pretty) if it's too tight.
I've worn the bra 6+ times under tanks and at yoga. The bra does not move; fits fine around the waist; and holds everything in. I'm 146lb, 32C-D, 5'8 and normally wear a size 6 tank (sometimes 4 or 2 if it's a baggy style). I really love this bra and plan on ordering another in black.
If it helps anyone, I purchased a size 6 for the lift and separate bra but a size 8 in this bra.

No neck pain!
I'm very sensitive to neck pain with tight sports bra. Unlike Energy bra, this is not too snug and have no neck pain issue. It says 'light' support but for small chested girl like me (34A) it's enough and I have a small cleavage (yeah!) I'll definitely buy more colors.

Cute and comfy
I have two of these bras both in size 6. I am generally a 4-6 up top in lulu, a 4 normally in the crops but sized up in order to better accommodate my bust (32C/34B).
This bra is so cute and comfortable on. It is suitable for all activities that aren't high impact. It's not super tight fitting and is very lightweight and therefore I feel like I can breathe in it. Easy to get on and off which is great after a sweaty session where your clothes stick to you or if you have DOMS and you can't lift your arms above your head.
I find it looks a lot better and doesn't tend to ride up at the back if the inserts are in, even though the inserts move when putting the bra on and then require adjustment so you don't look lumpy. This is kind of annoying and as someone suggested it'd be a good idea for the inserts to be anchored with a couple of stitches.
The wide and constantly updated range of colours means that everyone should be able to find at least one colour they like.
It is a little low cut at the front which looks good when upright but beware if you're bending over as you may then need to readjust.

The BEST bra!
By far the best sports bra I've ever owned. It's comfortable, cute and flattering for even small chests! I do have to size up in these...usually a 6 because of my shoulders. I'm a 34B and the 6 or even the 8 are a comfortable fit. They also are great during workouts, I'm a crossfitter and haven't had any issues :)

Love it BUT sizing may be inconsistent
Ive been wearing the free to be for a few years, never had any issues with support, or shrinking, or quality. I LOOOVE it! I am a 36B/34C, I used to wear the size 4, but about 6 months ago I found the 6 is more comfortable for me. Sizing up has not given me any issues, so if one size feels tight try sizing up. My ONLY complaint about this product is the inconsistent sizing. I ordered two different colors both size 6, and one fit well, like how a 6 should, and the other fit like a 4 (very tight), it is a BIG difference. I looked at the tags and found that they were made in different countries, I'm guessing thats why they fit differently, but I'm really bummed because I couldn't return or exchange it so now it just sits in my drawer.

Great sports bra
I purchased this in a size 4 and it fits very well. The Energy bra in size 4 is a tad tight, so I was a little worried about the fit of this one, but it's great. I love the cut and have had no issues during yoga or while running. The straps are cute and I love wearing this with an open back top.

i bought this bra a few months ago. i am a 34c and a size 8. size 6 was too tight. when I'm dancing this bra kept falling down and showing my cleavage which i hate. i love the design but they need to make this bra a little more higher cut.

they stretch out- dont buy pink!
I have a few of these but over time they stretch out and barley provide support or comfort. I bought a bright pink one and when I sweat it stains all my other clothes, also when I wash it it leaks so I have to wash it alone.
They're cute bras, just not best quality.
