On Your Way Bra
The colors bled all over my tank top and towel
Let me start by saying this is the first time I've ever written a review but I am so disappointed in this bra I felt compelled to spread the word.
I do love the feel of this bra. Super comfortable and easy to get on and off.
BUT sadly the colors bled all over during a hot yoga class.
I'd bought the bra at my local Lulu store after the color I wanted (inkwell/inky floral ghost inkwell bumble berry/bumble berry) was sold out online.
The first time I wore it not only did it bleed onto my white 105F singlet and ruin it, it also stained my towel. (I've washed both a few times in and can't get out the stains.) The bra itself became yellowish and splotchy from this one use... from sweat!
I thought Lulu had corrected their quality control issues. :(
I'm especially bummed because I love the look of the bra and the comfort but the quality of the fabric is just so poor.

Very nice for busty gals
I bought this bra a couple days ago in bumble berry. I tested it out for crossfit on a moderate day (no double unders or running) and I was really pleased with it. It's not as supportive as the all sport bra, but I would say its on the same level as the energy bra.
I found it more comfortable than the energy bra and I really like how it comes up a little higher in the front. We were snatching in Crossfit and it was nice to feel covered while in a deadlift position.
I am a 32DD and I purchased an 8. I wear a 6 in the all sport bra, an 8 in the energy bra, and a 6 in the flow y bra.
I hope Lululemon makes this in more fun colors and styles!

Purchased this in the bumble berry...and it's perfect! I've worn and loved the All Sport, the Stuff Your Bra II, and the 50 rep through the years for running and other cardio activities and this one trumps them all. Supportive, comfortable, NO BACK FAT (like the energy bra).
MORE COLORS, PLEASE!!!

Finally Lulu got a sports bra that I can train in or do yoga. Usually it is one or the other. I do Crossfit and need a bra for support, but comfortable also. Being 32DD makes it hard to find that. Lulu has also made it stylish. I am a fan of the energy bra, but it is not real supportive for jumping around. I am always looking for a good supportive sports bra and this fits the bill for me.The wide straps help with comfort and support. Being busty makes it difficult to find one cute and with support. Lulu usually suggest one of their bras like the TaTa Tamer that has a buckle closer in the back for larger chested women. If I wanted a buckle closer I would wear an everyday bra. Thank you Lulu for creating this bra and please don't discontinue it!

First Lulu Bra I've Loved
I love stripes. They are practically my uniform. I've tried on every lulu bra that doesn't have clasps or clips (I can't deal with strap clips/adjustors when working out) but hadn't ever found one that made me feel like I'd be able to run in it. Then I met the Inkwell Striped On Your Way bra. It fit like magic, I did a few test bounces in the dressing room (obviously) and the "girls" stayed put. I love the wide strap design because it stays put and doesn't dig in. It's the first bra I've felt comfortable wearing solo (sans shirt) at my crossfit gym because I know it keeps everything in place. I loved this so much that I also picked it up in black. For reference I'm a 34 C/D.

Cute and Comfortable!
This bra is obviously super cute! I bought the blue color and it's just as pretty in person.
I am always a size 4 in Lulu and was the same with this bra. I was hesitant to buy it at first because it's not quite as supportive when it comes to the feeling of compression. The material isn't quite as thick across the chest. However, it is one of the most comfortable ones from Lulu I've worn yet. There is no rough mess to rub on the inside under your arms/traps and the material feels very breathable.
The straps are just the right length for me! I love that this one doesn't necessarily cause you to have a lot of cleavage but is still very flattering and cute. The back says it all!
I would say if you're larger chested, you may want a better supporting bra, but for anyone around 32B you should feel secure enough in this one!
I do everything in my sports bras: Running, kickboxing, horseback riding, lounging around the house, and more.
LOVE this one! Want more colors!

I was instantly excited when I tried on this bra! It is the best fit I have found from any lulu bra. Prior, I had found success with the energy or all sports bra, but this one gives a bit more coverage both on the sides and on top so my chest is secure during a run or yoga practice while giving a very comfortable fit. For reference, I am a 32DD or 34D an find that many sports bras are too large in the rib cage, or fit around the rib cage but do not offer enough support or coverage for the chest. Lulu, please keep making this bra and I look forward to more colour options!

Not a great substitute for Energy Bra
I love the LLL energy bras and have a bunch. I find they are supportive enough for running and provide great coverage as well as don't make my shoulders hurt after 2 hours (but eventually after wearing all day my shoulders seem to hurt with any cross-back bra). I really wanted a bra in the inky floral bloom print and the Energy bra hasn't been released in that so I tried the On My Way bra. Although I found the back very comfortable, I found that it gave me a much wider and more squashed boob look than the Energy bra both with and without the pads. I also found that the pads didn't really seem to fit well in it even though it is made to accept pads. And it seemed a tad shorter (from top of shoulder to underneath boobs) than the Energy bra. Sadly this was an easy pass for me.

VERY comfortable alternative to Energy & All Sport
I'm 5'2", about a 30E or 32DD, a size 6, and honestly, this is the most comfortable bra I've worn from lululemon... or maybe anywhere. I tried it in store, and almost felt like I could size down to the 4, but ended up sticking with my TTS and it was the right decision for me. I bought two.
It didn't seem to me like it'd be especially different from either the Energy or All Sport bras, but for some reason, it is noticeably more comfortable for me (and I like both of those bras!). The band and straps are very comfortable and not slippy, and I'm happy with the coverage, which is often an issue for me.
Also, I was put off by the appearance of the big solid mesh intrusion into the various patterns initially, as others mentioned... but it's worth noting that when you wear it with a tank or top over it, it becomes a non-issue IMO. If the tank dips a little, from the front, you'd be seeing a solid color only, and you'd get a peak at the pattern from the arm holes.
The only thing I don't really like has is that the V-ish shaped seam in front is very visible if you're wearing a tighter tank (like a CRB). Of course, that doesn't really affect the function, so I'm still giving it 5-stars since it feels so so good on... though really I'd like to deduct half a star or something for it. So 4.5!

Runner up to the Top Speed
Love this new style of bra! It's my runner up to the Top Speed. As an avid runner I have only found one bra that fits me perfectly and is comfortable for running. Since the Top Speed is nowhere to be found these days this would be my next choice. This fits me tts, and is perfect in all the right places. It reminds me of the In A Flash Bra, only way better and way more comfy. Please make more colours, Bumble Berry or just plain white would make me very happy.
