Wish I could have loved this... :(
I was looking for a bra with a good amount of support, as my others just did not cut it during workouts. I decided to try this bra. While I wish I could have loved it (its so pretty!), I don't! I picked this up in my regular size- 34D. When I tried it on at the store, it felt like it fit perfectly. However, after wearing it about 3-4 times, I realized it just was not true to size, and too small. Wearing it while doing light activities like walking was fine. However, during workouts the elastic on the bottom at the front would dig into my skin, causing severe rashes. On the bright side, it felt like it was supportive! I've since stopped wearing it after those first couple of times. It's such a shame after spending so much :( . I wish I had gotten it one size bigger, as I am sure I would have had a different experience!

Already broken :(
When I first got bra I was so excited to finally have a cute, supportive bra in my size! Unfortunately it has already begun to fall apart after only having it for 3 months! For the price of these bras I was hoping to get use out of it for much longer! The bottom clasp came loose and is spun around making it unusable. I really loved my sports bra but I need something that is better quality.

The Elusive Ta Ta Tamer
Love the Ta Ta Tamer, have several and would like more, but there are absolutely none available in my size (34E). I realize that they may be popular but what's the deal with the lack of stock?

Takes some contortion
I've been wearing Energy Bras for my runs, but after some weight gain the tatas were needing a bit more support. I tried on the tata tamer and it felt so good in the store I never wanted to take it off!
Since I practically live in the CRB tops, I wear it with the straps crossed. I do have to let the strap length out almost all the way in order to do this. Then it's next to impossible to do up the closure with the bra on, so I have to close it up and then shimmy it over my head. It's not easy, and it takes some work, and some contortions, but once the bra is settled, the girls don't move on my runs.

Best Sports Bra I've Ever Owned
Seriously. No uniboob, comfortable, flattering, cute (!) - I plan on having a very long relationship with these sports bras. I don't have a problem wearing them with the straps crossed, but they are as long as possible to do so, so I could see that being an issue for some. I did find that I needed a larger cup size than my regular bras - I'm typically a 32d/dd and found that the 32e actually fits best, which brings me to my only complaint... The last 3-4 colors of these that have been released have been sold out in my size as soon as they hit the website. No lie - I even happened to be looking at the website the night a new color went up and 32e was already "sold out". So, I don't know if lululemon is just not making every color in that size, or if they're only making like 10 and they really are sold out, but it's frustrating. Please have more colors available in 32e!

This was the first bra I bought from lululemon and I absolutely love it. It's perfectly supportive and keeps my chest in place and doesn't make my chest look like a shelf. I'm not always a fan of bras with thick straps, but these are not very bulky. Great bra!
For other sports bras, I have had to buy one cup size up, but I tried a few different sizes on in the store and ended up buying my normal cup and band size.

Solid running bra
I've recently begun training for a ten mile after a hiatus from running. Years ago, I ran long distances quite frequently and am no stranger to trying on endless numbers of running bras.
I had bought two Moving Comfort bras - the rebound racer + the urban x-cover - both are solid bras, with the urban x-over being a little more stylist. I needed a third bra and thought I would try the new ta-ta tamer.
I've tried on the ta-ta tamer before, and I disliked that the straps did not cross, and how if your boobs are not high up on your torso, it's like an acrobatic trip to get them into the cups. So, I thought I'd try it again and was relieved to see some updated colors.
I have to say it took a little wiggling into, but I like the fit. You can cross the straps. Obviously this shortens them, and if you have a longish torso like me, it can be a bit tricky. For some taller gals (I am short but have a longer torso than legs), I can imagine crossing the straps would not allow it to fit. For me, the fit was snug, like my Moving Comfort bras. Bounce was minimal. I am always at a loss as to what is actually bouncing - my fat around my waist or my actual boob? Unless you squish everything together and flat like in a compression bra, your fat will move. The bounce was about as much as the Urban X-over, which is fine by me.
I took it on a run this AM for two miles. Comfortable. The padded straps help, so even though they are on snug, they do not dig in. I will wait to see how it holds up during my 5k this weekend and as I add mileage. So far, an improvement over the old model, but bra shopping is like trying on jeans - there is not one fit that will cater to everyone - you really have to try it on to see if it works for you.

I was excited when I first got this bra- fit well and I used it in my regular sport bra rotation. What I noticed is that first one eyelet fell out of the clasp and the back, then another, then another. I had to rig up a way for the bra to stay closed at the back as I was down to only one working clasp! All of the other bras in my rotation did not fall apart like this!
I really like the look and fit of this bra- too bad I can no longer do it up in the back!

After years of wearing other lulu bras and thinking I'd never need my 'tas' to be tamed, I finally bought this bra. It feels like I'm not wearing anything at all - it doesn't shift or move when I cycle or do vigorous yoga classes, and it is very supportive. I will definitely be buying more of these & would recommend them to anyone who is looking for comfort, support, and quality in their sports bras.

Wish I had read more reviews
I have purchased two ta ta tamers before getting this one. My others are a few years old and still going strong. I ordered this one July 17 and received it quickly. I have only worn it three times and already it has started to rip. The rip is along the part near the clasp. I am afraid to wear it again in case it rips even more. A bra this expensive should not be so poorly made that it rips. I was not wearing it too tight either. It was comfortable. I am between two clasps and always wear on the looser clasp so it definitely was not pulled too tight. I wish I had paid more attention to the reviews that state how much the lulu quality has gone downhill.
