Simplicity is a beautiful thing. We made this bra because we wanted a seasonless classic that we could wear under any tank, for every activity. We gave it a COOLMAX liner and added mesh in strategic places so we can blow off steam when we work up a sweat.
the racerback design means this bra is invisible under most athletic tanks
thin straps allow you to move and twist with ease
mesh panelling between the cups and on the back helps sweat evaporate quickly
chafe-resistant elastic band under the bust provides support where you need it most
What happened to my favorite bra? Ordered a new one and it looks like a cheap knock-off next to my older ones. If they changed design, why wouldn't they call it the Flow Y V? At least then I may have poured through the reviews and known there was a design change BEFORE I took the tags off. The fit is like a whole size smaller and the material in front is a good 1" shorter - hardly any coverage at all. Even the cup inserts that come with this bra dont fit in them properly without folding! Why Lulu? Your quality is falling short in everything, just like this bra. And please don't tell me to take these to an "educator". I don't live anywhere near a store to get "educated" and your 15 day return policy is imo absurd. Why aren't you listening to your customers?

I tried on a number of Lulu's sports bras options and decided to go with the Flow Y bra for a number of reasons. It is simple and comes in great color options. I have a very small chest so I don't need a ton of support but wanted something cute and mildly supportive for long runs and yoga. I tried on the faded zap (lime green) in the store but found it boarder line see through when the pads were removed (I don't like the added padding when I run). Instead I went with hot pink - loved the color and it was super comfortable for my first run. I was dismayed to find the color ran from my running tank onto my brand new pink bra leaving a permanent sweat stain on the bra. It almost washed out with some heavy scrubbing and multiple washes. Note: it was not a Lulu tank but I'd worn/washed the tank dozens of times without having it stain anything else - something in the Lulu tank just picked up the color I guess. Overall fit is great - a word of caution though about color/sweat staining.

wish sizing were more consistent
I have this bra in black and the fresh dot teal, both in a size 6 (I wear a 32C bra). My black Flow Y fits perfectly but the teal Flow Y is a bit snug. The straps on the teal Flow Y are too tight and it's a little bit smaller all around. I'm hoping that it stretches out a bit so that it will be more comfortable because I love the color.
Other than the issues with sizing, this bra has been great for running and working out.

Perfect for a small chest
I have been in love with the Power Y shirts for some time now, so I figured I would give this a try, and I have no regrets. Absolutley love it. I have a smaller chest, so not having the big thick straps is a bonus, and I absolutely love wearing these even when I am not working out. So comfortable, true to size, cute to layer with as well. Good job Lulu:)

Cute, but falls down
I've been wearing this for a few days and it seems to lose support and start sagging down. It still is pretty tight around my chest, but at the bottom it bunches up and doesn't seem as solid. I wouldn't wear it working out either, it seems like it slides around with yoga and I become in danger of popping out... I make it sound like I have way too small of a size, but I can't go down another size without suffocating myself, and I am an A bra size - so I'm not sure why this is happening.

Still Good but something is different...
I love this bra! I wear it working out or just around. It is super comfy and looks great. I am 128 pounds, 5'7, and a 32A. I usually wear a size 4 in lulu but lately in the sport bras I have sized up to a 6. I am not sure if lulu has changed the sizes or what, but make sure you try it on before you buy! I completely agree with what other people are saying about this bra being great for those with smaller chests.
Overall I would recommend this to others. :)

This is the first and only Lulu bra I own. I've bought some shirts from them, usually size 6 and a 6 fits me well in this bra. I'm 5ft6 and about 125lbs, normally wear a 34B-32C. Wear it to hot yoga under old cotton tanks and it has good support and doesn't stretches out minimally post-sweating, back to good after a wash in cold water and hang to dry. Also wear it to the gym and does a good job with jogging, zumba, whatever!

Stretches out fast
This bra is very comfortable. I started wearing them everyday. The only problem is that it stretches out very fast. I already had to retire one that I've only been wearing for a couple of months. I wash them in a delicate laundry bag, on delicate cycle, in cold water with extra gentle fabric care wash, and lay flat to dry. Although I do this they still manage to stretch out very fast. Which is unfortunate. I'm petite and small chested, I do not wear the bra to run or for any intense activity. I bought four at a time and wish I hadn't considering how fast they stretch out and for how much money I spent. This bra is good but it would be great if it kept it's shape over time. The ones that are the cotton or softer fabric stretch out faster than the other fabrics.

Great bra, stitching came undone after a few wears
I love love love this bra. I use it for everything from Crossfit to running to lounging. It super comfortable and I have no issue with the support level. I have never once been worried about my chest spilling out, even while upside down doing handstands. I am a smaller build, 32B, so this bra may be more ideal for those with smaller chests. My complaint is that after buying the bra, the stitching around the band began to come undone. I'm VERY careful with how I take care of my lulu products, so I know that is not the issue. I'm a disappointed that was the case, but am hoping my next one will not have that issue.

Great for everyday wear, but not high impact
I like this bra to wear everyday for to-and-fro activities and on lift days. I do not like it for high impact exercises as it does not have a lot of great support.
