Not really for pirouettes?
I love this bra and wear it to dance all the time. It fits me perfectly and it's very comfortable. The only problem I had with it (my mom had the same problem) was that the straps are SO far out on your shoulders that almost every time you move the fall off. There is no way to prevent this because there is no adjustment on the straps. I find it ironic that its called a pirouette bra, because every time I do a pirouette, the straps fall off.

loving the sweet sports bras
First off, I will just say that I prefer wearing sport bras over regular bras even in my day to day activities. This is great for that! I found it to be supportive, but I don't know if I would do my morning run in it.
The coverage is perfect and I love the cinching details and the low back! I haven't had any issues with the straps at all- I am 125lbs, 5'2'' and I'm 29'' around my torso with a C cup. I ordered a size 6.... I think I size 8 would have been too big around the torso.
Would I recommend this for curvier gals? I am not sure. But it is an item I would recommend to a friend, but maybe only if they could try it on in a store first. :)

best sports bra ever
This bra is the best sports bra I ever had and I had many.
I am a 34 A and this bra is super flattering. I bought size 4
and it fits like a second skin, I took the pads out and it fits
perfectly. I ordered already another one.

I absolutely adore this bra. I own several of its predecessors (pirouette with no cinching and micromesh reversible lining, from in or around 2007-08) and was super stoked when I saw an updated version in the shop. It is INCREDIBLE for Bikram, so much so that I went back and picked up a few more so I could always have one at the ready for my daily practice.
Perfect support (I am a 34b and find it ideal)
Love the cinching option. It's great for Bikram as less coverage=better so I cinch it up and find that there's no risk of accidental exposure but it's cooling
Super flattering- the back is great and I love the minimal coverage, again for Bikram, less is definitely more
Amazing to wear under other tops- Racer backs are harder to pair with normal clothing which is sometimes necessary. I love the way the pirouette looks under my heart opener tank
Great quality- I know that there's been some issues with Lululemon's quality as of late but this bra has been nothing but outsanding
None, really. I suppose the straps do roll a bit but it isn't really an issue for me.

Looking to buy another one!
I absolutely loved this sports bra. I live in a city where we don't have a Lulu so I often hesitate when I am buying a new item. I noticed that the sizes were limited and I really wanted a sports bra that was not racer back so I went for it. The straps are a perfect length on me. They don't slip down at all. This bra it great for anything! I am worried that it's not going to be back once the last few size 2s are sold :( Please bring it back or let me know which store is selling them! I would like a few more!

versatile and comfortable, cinching confusing
I bought this yesterday marked down and wore it under another lulu tank with a similar cut (spaghetti straps, sweetheart-esque neckline). This is great for that, plus it could potentially be worn under other clothing where you want to feel the support but not have on a racer back or tight neckline bra. I wore this and the tank out to dinner with cute pants as if they were normal clothes!
Unlike other reviews, the straps do not roll on me. I am 34B, 5'6", 115 pounds. I am probably a 4 but can get away with a 6 in this bra. I do have broader shoulders/collarbones as I used to be a swimmer, so perhaps that is why.
The cinching is a little confusing. It does not stay put. I problem-solved and tied it together which works great, but I have a feeling this is not the intention of the designer.

This bra looks great, but the straps are just too long/no support.

Not Lulu's best work
This bra is ok. The straps first off are way too wide. They sit almost on my arms. The straps also roll and I can't get them to stay lying flat for more than five minutes. Finally, it is just not flattering on the boobs. It makes them look flat and spaced out and they just kinda slop to the sides. It would be nice if the bra held the boobs in closer to give a slimmer look on the torso and provide some cleavage.
It is fairly comfortable. I wore it for 13 hours today- through work and a workout- without any digging or discomfort. The spring has sprung pattern is also super cute and the only reason I am keeping it despite all the issues I have with it.

Super Cozy and very Pretty
I love this bra. Before I go on about it I will say that I am a muscular build with a smaller chest, 36b. That being said, this is a great bra for me, I prefer something that's just enough for under clothing but doesn't feel like a bra and its fine for running and working out. I really love it a lot and will most likely sunbathe in it on the privacy of my home deck, as well as run and work out in it, of course! :)

Cute Style, Rolling Straps are a Problem
I thought this style was very cute. The fit and support was similar to the flow y bra but the straps were not in racerback fashion. The ruching between the breasts was a nice touch and added to the style appeal. The problem I have with it is that the straps roll on me which is uncomfortable. I usually consult an educator regarding size (and I wear a sz 6 across the board in Lulu bras) so I don't think that was the issue.
