Heat It Up Bra
I am usually a 4 in all lulu tops, but this bra is so tight. It gives me double boob and major back bulges. I am a 34B bra size, but I do have a pretty broad back. I wish I sized up, too bad it's final sale! I would have loved it if it fit.

Great for Bikram. Happy with this bra.
Overall I like the design of the Heat It Up Bra, including the back straps and front closure. I have only worn it to Bikram Yoga (not sure if I'd wear it running).
I had one of these in black. I was happy to see them go on markdown to $34 (from $52) and being content with the black one, I ordered the inkwell/mellow lemon, white/dune, very green/fresh teal from wmtm. (I really like Very Green. Why couldn't you give us a CRB in VG, LLL?) I also bought a beach blanket blue/aquamarine on markdown in store. I would not have purchased this many versions if they were not marked down.
I am light support (34B). I tried it on in store and bought size 6. I am a size 2 in a CRB and a 4 in shirts (a 4 in LLL bras absolutely doesn't work for me). I've worn each of them in Bikram Yoga with the removable cups inserted (for modesty in that area). Bra stays put, close fitted in the cup area (no gaping), doesn't ride up in back or front. There have been no accidents for any pose and I don't feel self conscious.
The only thing that bothers me at times is the plastic closure in the front, which I don't think is necessarily the bra's fault. It hurts my breastbone when preparing for certain poses (full locust), or sometimes in face down savasana. The clasp also causes itchiness at times. I otherwise applaud the front closure.
I know people sometimes complain about not receiving the removable cups with their order, so I was happy to receive them with all 3 versions that I ordered from wmtm.

This bra is probably one of the easiest bras I've worn to hot yoga. As an individual who sweats profusely, I love the front clasp option as after a class, I don't have to wiggle and struggle out of a tight, wet sports bra.
I am a 34C and purchased a 8 in this - while it's extremely comfortable, sometimes while doing down ward poses, I was worried about how low the bra was, as it exposed a bit more than I would like. I guess wearing a higher collared shirt would solve this problem temporarily.
Can't complain however, great price and worked with the body.

Best Sports Bra Ever
After reading the stellar reviews about this bra I went to my local store and tried one on. Then I bought 5 of them! I couldn't believe it. Sports bras are scary if you are a small-chested woman like me. They almost always flatten me out completely. But this bra gives me such a boost! It is incredibly. It is like a push up sports bra! Also I have always preferred bras with front closures. And this one is comfortably enough to wear all day long. I'm a 4 in all Lulu tops and this one fit TTS for me. The only thing I wish for were prettier colours (I love the pink, blue and black but I am not so crazy about the pastel shades). I really hope this bra does not disappear. I think the Lulu team achieved the impossible here - a figure flattering sports bra!

Wow....this bra is amazing in fit and looks. After reading a few reviews I decided to try it out in person and am so glad I did. It is TTS and I wear it with or without the cup inserts. Thank you Lulu for another great product!! I took an 8 in this bra and am 5'7" weigh 135 & 34c.

I tend to wear a 34 b or c bra. I measure when I bought this, one in a size 4, one in a 6...thinking I was going to have to take the 6 in. Turns out I needed an 8. In shirts I wear xs, lulu shirts maybe a 6, tend to be 4. Circumference was a great fit, it was just the cup that was small, I was pouring out of it. Very sad as it is $34 x 2 down the drain

Great for sweaty days
I really like this bra. Its great for when you're hot and sticky and dont want to dislocate your shoulder to get in or out of a bra. I am a 34A on a good day and this fits rather well without the extra cup padding. Normally in Lulu bras I am a 4 but I had to go up a size to a 6 in this one. The distance from the top of the shoulders to the band in the back seems shorter than other bras so it was riding up in the back. But just a size up and its perfect. :)

I purchased this bra for a friend and I couldn't resist buying one for myself! I weigh 110 lbs, and I am 5'5 and 34A. I tried on her size 6 and it was a bit loose with the cup size, so I think the size 4 would be perfect for me. The front clasp is perfect, and I don't really mind that the straps are not adjustable because it fits me well. The pink color is SO cute and I can't wait until it comes in the mail!

This bra really surprised me. I'm 32D, and bought this bra on a whim from the WMTM section in a size 6. I really didn't think it would fit... at all. BUT! It does! And really well! The band is just the right size, and the cups are larger than I had expected. I don't think I'd dare to wear it to a bikram or moksha class out of fear of spillage, but I like it for casual wear. Wish I had bought more when they had the 6's available!
One thing that could be better - individual cup and band sizes, instead of numeric 2, 4, 6. Women with more varied proportions may have a hard time finding the right size.

Best Sports Bra Ever!
This is probably the best sports bra I have ever owned. The front enclosure was just the icing on top of my cake. Perfect! If your wondering sizing, I am a 34C and the size 8 fit perfectly.
