I tried this bra on at the store yesterday and it was perfect. It said moderate support but online it says light support. It feels like it has plenty of support for a long run. Box jumps, high knees, etc. may be a little uncomfortable for a long period of time but I did a few in the store and it was not unbearable. I got a size 4, am 5' 7'', 125 lbs and a 34 A. It is my new favorite bra next to Lulu's energy bra.

Once you get in it, it's great
A bit of work getting it on (put antiperspirant on after!), but once on it's a great fit, and very flattering. I usually wear a size 4, no different in this (34B, 105lbs).

NEW favorite bra
I love love love this bra. It gives me the right amount of support and lift. Plus the back is super cute. It's an older style and Im so glad they decided to bring it back!

This bra is exceptional. It's got a great fit for my chest with a super cute back. I don't recommend anyone try this at home, but I purchased the polar cream one and I frequently dye it. I use all-natural beet, turmeric, berry and tea dyes and after a wash in the laundry- PRESTO- back to cream! I love the versatility of that.
BUT: I'm an active volleyball player and I constantly have to raise my arms to block. I also have large shoulders from swimming. These two factors cause my straps to constantly flip over on my my shoulders. Each time I jump to block or spike there's a THWACK sound from the strap flip-flopping. Even shrugging my shoulders causes it to warp.
The only reason I wouldn't recommend this bra to any of my friends is because they're all volleyball players who need to be able to lift their arms. I recommended it to my sister who plays soccer. She loves it!

Breathe Easy Bra!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bra! For all my ladies who have a smaller chest, this gives you a little extra padding and the back of it looks so cute by itself or under a sheer tank! I am a 34A and this gives me good coverage for a size 4. Definitely more restrictive (in a good way) than the free to be bra.

BEST BRA EVER!!!!!
I have purchased every sports bra ever made from every store except lululemon, and NONE of them have ever fit, they always dig in in my armpits. The back of this bra caught my eye so i decided to buy one and try it, i had read some reviews about this not being a good bra for running but decided to try it anyway,,,AMAZING!!!!! I ran 4 miles in it and the minute i got home i ordered 3 more, they are all the same color (polar cream) and i dont even care, i can finally wear a sports bra to run in!!!! PLEASE LULU MAKE MORE OF THESE IN MORE COLORS!

I ordered this bra online and was worried it wouldn't fit. I'm 5'8" and 123lbs and ordered the 6. The breathe easy came and was perfect. I love how it frames my back and compliments my trapz. Full coverage but doesn't squish 'em too tight. PLEASE bring this back in more colors!!

Comfortable but Not for Every Practice
This bra is really comfortable and gives great shape but doesn't hold everything in place for more vigorous practices. That said I am a D cup so most likely it would be fine for smaller chests.

nice bra... but horrible chemical smell
I got this online and while I like the bra itself (nice color, love the luxtreme material) I am contemplating returning it because of the overwhelming chemical smell of the bra and the reusable back and packaging it came in. It absolutely reeks of some type of plastic-y or chemical smell, and I'm afraid that washing it won't get it out. My poor kitty came to sniff the bag and broke out in an hour long sneeze fit. This makes me very concerned and worried about keeping it and what type of chemicals I am going to inhale if I do. Please lululemon, whatever you are treating your products with or storing them in... change it. I have never had this problem with anything I have bought in store.
