Hold It Against Me Bra
Bounce be gone!
I bought this bra after months of searching for the perfect sports bra. Every other bra that I tried on left me feeling bouncy and exposed. I frequently do TRX and the last thing I want is for one of my girls' to pop out. I wore this bra to go spinning in this morning and everything was held in place and that is something I really wanted in a sports bra.
I will agree with other reviewers, Yes, the bra is hard to get on but once it is on you aren't going anywhere. Please continue to make this bra! Now that I have finally found something that works I would like to stock up.

What caught my eye on this bra was the name of it. I hated the feeling of my breast bouncing, and always had to wear 2 different sport bras to fit my needs. I like my bras tight were they didn?t bounce but that caused them to spill over the top, as I am a 5?7@ 140 wearing a 34DD. I was also iffy the reviews and the sizing so I ordered to different sizes online and kept the one that fit best. I was planning on ordering more but they are out, I randomly found one in my local store and I jumped on it, I was so happy to see it in my size.
I could see why this bra has a lot of Love and Hate reviews it can be intimidating as the stiffness is not something that is common, but its definitely the best bra I have ever tried on i was worth every penny. Since this great investment I haven?t worn my other sport bras I can?t see myself going back please make more!!!
I cycle, run and hit the gym 6x a week i needed a bra i could wear to all my events, and i finally found it.

Uncomfortable and unflattering
I thought this was going to be my new bra. I was prepared to buy it in every color. I'm glad I waited. The band is stiff and led to chafing. The light coverage over the boobs is just weird and not flattering. I take the liners out of the Ta-Ta Tamer so I thought this would be great because clearly the designers didn't think this one needs liners.
Ultimately, the bra is stiff and uncomfortable. I'm sorry I wasted my money on it.

When I saw this bra I thought it was going to be perfect for me. I am a chesty girl but am quite petite. So, I thought with the adjustable straps and back this was going to be the answer. Oh, I was wrong. It is very uncomfortable to start off with, I am always trying to adjust it to see if I get it to fit properly but no luck. Support, there is none! There is support around the boob but there is a weak light fabric over the boobs. So when I am doing crossfit or yoga my boobs are just all over the place. That is not the only problem because even just wearing the bra to lounge around it make your boobs look like floppy darts! I would not recommend this bra to anyone! I have the all-sport bra in 4 different colors and it is still the bra to beat for support and comfort.

Uuugh, seriously Lululemon? This bra has NOTHING going for it. It's even worse than the TaTaTamer. While the TaTa just runs way too big in the band and the straps (which is a serious issue) this one does actually run pretty true to size. That is the best I can say for it. The band feels like it is made of cardboard. Getting it on was literally painful and since it has no stretch you have two options: either making it tight enough to actually support, or giving breathing room which takes away from support. Now lets talk about the cups. The cups in this bra are just weird. There are these rings of super supportive material with the middle cut out and a layer of flimsy material over that. It pushed my boobs into this weird torpedo shape. I am giving up on lulu bras for cardio exercise. I have come to the conclusion that their designers are extremely sizeist and only want to make cute bras for smaller chested girls. I will still wear the Flow Y for yoga since it is so comfortable, but unfortunately the love affair will stop there. It's too bad since I really love all the cute styles. C'est la vie.

Finally a non-chafing running bra
The reviews are odd to me... Why are you rating a bra based on your ability to wear it in other non- exercise scenarios or without a shirt? This bra was created for high impact sports, in particular running. I run 50+ miles per week and several marathons per year. I owned 6 TaTa tamer II bras because honestly it was the only bra that fit my D cup boobs but offered a 32 band size. The problem is that I had severe chafing at the breastbone and under the breast. I used mole skin, body glide, waterproof band aids, thin base sports bras... You name it and I tried it because I loved the support of the TaTa Tamer. Then a friend recommended this bra. ZERO chafing. I have ran 200 miles in the same bra and 20+ miles. The bra is comfortable, supportive and doesn't chafe. Yes, your boobs look a little pointy but with a shirt no one can tell.

Way too hard to get on!
I feel like this bra would be supportive if I could get it on. The band has absolutely no stretch, which is why I couldn't get it on. Perhaps the sizing runs small too, but I would NOT order this online if I were you. I feel like it would have good support, but it doesn't look very nice.

Best sports bra!
I bought two of these at my local store for 29.00 each. I love this bra although it does have a very snug fit. I'm normally 36c and had to get a 38c.

Does the trick..
Not sure why this bra is getting soso reviews, it works great...sports bras are not meant to be frilly, low cut, bouncy or lacy...they are meant to be fully supported, wide straps and cover your chest completely..........this does all that.
I have many brands of sports bras and this is my first Lulu bra, I tried a few others on at the store but none of them had enough proper support for running or any type of bouncing activity.
If you are an A or B cup you might be able to get away with less support but if you are a C cup or more and you run then this is the bra you can depend on. Not sure why others mention mis-shapen cups, had no problem here, am completely satisfied with this bra...only complaint, another colour would be nice....

This bra is the ugliest, least flattering lululemon product I have ever had the misfortune of trying on. Its like a straight jacket everywhere except the cups, which are loose (i.e. not supportive, just a bit of fabric unlike the rest of the bra) and way too small and make your boobs look ridiculously pointy and saggy. I don't know why anyone would buy this when they can get the ta ta tamer or the all sport bra instead...
