Free To Be *Wild
My Favorite Bra!
I love these bras, when i found out they were being re-released i was ecstatic as i nearly wore my first one out! They are soo comfortable and look cute under low back or sheer shirts.

as good as the reviews say!
After hearing so much feedback about this bra, I ordered the rocky road/toothpaste pattern and I must say I'm quite impressed. I am usually a 4-6 in tops but I usually wear a size 8 in bras. After losing some weight, I noticed my size 8 bras were beginning to pucker a bit across the front and realized it was probably time to size down. I went for a size 6, which is extremely compressive. My boobs aren't spilling out of the top, but the bra JUST fits along the bottom. If I could be in between a 6 and an 8 that would be perfect, but the fit on this is ok. The only thing that I'm not a huge fan of is that the straps on the side do tend to accentuate my back fat a little. With the back being higher cut on tank tops, this isn't an issue, but for a draping tank top, it might not look so flattering. Still love the design and for all functional purposes, this bra is great.

Not for ample girls
I love this bra and I want it to work for me, but it fits very small. The cups are small, the straps are narrow, and the band under the bust is narrow. This results in very little support and not as much comfort for a size 8 or larger.
I tried on the Wild tank to see if I could still get the "look" of this bra, and much to my surprise, it was great! The bra in the tank is made slightly different that it is compared to this bra.
So Lulu, please remake the Free to be Wild bra, but with wider straps and a wider band, and maybe slightly larger cups?!
You can see the difference in the band and strap widths in the pics I included.

For reference, I am 5'4" 135 lbs, 32/34B - I did buy the black, striped/Rocky Road & the Rocky Road/Toothepaste straps all in size 6. It fits fine - though i do find it compresses a bit therefore resulting in some spillage (which I am OK with). The purple/bumbleberry popped up on-line in a size 8 and I bought it expecting it not to fit. Surprisingly it did fit - not super compressed like size 6 but comfortable and straps are perfect length (I thought they would be too long and loose).
I bought the ultra violet and the polka dot/blush one in size 8 too - and it seems to fit fine. I found that when I was raising the bar above my head that the bottom band seemed to turn a little - so not sure if it is loosening up a bit as I workout...but I thought it still felt snug and provided ample support (but I don't need a lot of it and I am not running in it).
I did wear my Energy bra the other day (size 6) and felt quite a bit of pinching under the arm after wearing it for a bit - maybe an indication that I really do need a size 8 in bras! All else I wear is size 6, except some tanks are size 4.
Hope this helps as I know I appreciate reviews on sizing, especially when ordering on-line.

This is an amazing bra, just beautiful. It fits true to size for me (34B) I use a size 6. I could have gone down to 4, but the support would be the same and I don't like to stretch the back strap. This is really not a bra for big chested girls (if you plan to do anything other than walk around). I can see a boob popping out if you are a large C or bigger, but also depends on what you are comfortable with. Highly recommended! I pair mine with 105 racer backs, just beautiful!

Im a 34 D and this bra is wonderful! It looks amazing with all the tanks that I have! Even my 5 year old niece complimented it! The support is great for minimal workouts! I love it for rollerblading, lifting and daily wear!!! Ahhhh I want more colors please!!!! I also stayed with my TTS 8. If I layer the bra then I can run in it. Just buy it!!!!! Won't regret it! I also wouldn't say that I had spillage!!!!! Happy with the fit!

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
What can I say but everything amazing and positive about this bra! The back is so unique and sexy and can even be worn on a night out with a nice backless top. In the gym, it's super comfy and hugs you in the right spot as you spin, do cardio, weight train, anything you like!! Just like the free to be bra but BETTER! It was like finding a unicorn when I saw these bras in the store... After a 2 year hunt, I finally got it!
Please come out with more colors!!

I love this bra. I have it in 3 colors now and I love them to pieces! I am a 34 B and generally a size 4 or 6 in lulu but in bras I always size up to an 8 because I don't like having a super tight bra on (I don't have big boobs either so it's not like I have to hold anything down)
The back design looks amazing in a lot of tops that I have not only for working out but for casual day time looks. I have received a lot of compliments about it and people keep asking me if they can borrow them.... Ummmmmmm, no! These are like gold!
I'm so happy to hear that these will be a core staple next year!

Best. Bra. EVER!!!
Soooo I was lucky enough to scoop up one of these bras today at my local store. WOO HOO! I couldn't be more excited!!
I've had one in black for about a year and it is BY FAR my favorite bra!! I have three of the 'free to be' bras in various colors, and, much as I love them, they don't hold a candle to this bra in terms of fit, comfort, and style. Not. Even. Close.
This bra fits TTS, no pulling of the straps (even for us tall girls with broad-ish shoulders), so no need to size up!! And, plenty of support for yoga or running (for me anyway). For reference, I'm 5'8", size 4, and 32B.
If only Lulu would make more of these available in local stores (good luck trying to buy this online, it sold out in minutes) AND in more colors (my store only received one color, and only four in each size).
SOOOO thankful that I was able to get one of these bras!!!!! I love my local Lulu crew!! Shout out to Joe (and Katie) @ Harbor East!!
