Run: Stuff Your Bra II
No Second Thoughts?
This is one of the best sorts bras out there! I have absolutely no second thoughts about this purchase :)
Perfect for a run and even a workout. I got the black-striped pair in size 4. It's true to size and is comfortable too!
It's a must-have for sure!!

Practical, comfortable and flattering bra!
I saw this sports bra online and after reading the reviews I wondered if it is as great as everyone was saying it is. You know what, it is! I was worried it'd be uncomfortable to put keys, etc. in the front pockets, but you can't feel them in there. Those pockets are nothing but convenient. The back cross-design is another reason why I love it. I'm a 32c, 5'0 and 95lbs and size 4 is a perfect fit.

THE. BEST. BRA. EVER.
This bra is amazing, and now sets the standard for what I'll expect from sports bras in the future! I am an avid runner and bought this bra specifically for marathon training, BECAUSE POCKETS AMIRITE? I love that I can place my iPhone in either of the large pockets and know that it will stay in place securely while somehow also feeling weightless/not bothersome. The pockets are also perfect for gels, credit cards, etc.
I wear a size 8 in most Lulu tops due to my swimmer's build (broad-shoulders, wide rib cage), but I am fairly small in the bust (a-cup size with a b-cup band range). I ordered this in a 6 and an 8 and decided to size down to a 6 even though it was snug at first and created a very slight "muffin top" effect under my armpits for the first run. I am glad I sized down, and would advocate this if you run a lot and plan to wear this bra a lot, as it has felt secure and supportive and with sweat the bra loosens just enough to feel perfect in the smaller size. It has not stretched out or lost its shape after several weeks' running.
I would buy this bra in every color, and hope it stays as a regularly featured item!!!!!! IT IS AMAZING and it has revolutionized my summer marathon training.

I'm so glad this bra made a return into Lulu. Greatest support next to the Energy Bra and love the back style on this. Also, when I don't have a place to put my phone, I just stuff it into the bra! So convenient!

This bra is wonderful, I am a size 34D and I enjoy running and this bra is wonderful for that. I was a bit skeptical at first, but the support is great and it is one of the most comfortable sports bras I have worn.

The stuff your bra is back and I am OVER THE MOON! This is easily the greatest bra lulu has ever made. Thick, comfortable, quality. All you could ever want from a bra. I'm a minimalist when it comes to exercise, so having a bra I can shove my keys and iPod shuffle into is a dream. No hands/pockets/belts/armbands/etc. necessary. Who cares if your boobs are lumpy? You're exercising. Focus on your sweat. Love love love this bra. Please don't ever stop making it!

I'd Put A Ring On It
Having just had Lucy & Ethel upgraded from a B cup to a C cup, I am about one more purchase away from needing a lululemon 12-step program. Not that that's a bad thing. ;-)
Because of the change in size, I have had to buy all new lulu tops and bras (that sound you hear, is my husband weeping haha) so I have been on a vision quest to determine my new favorite. This is the one. THE one. Super comfortable, has just the right support, gives you the option to stuff more than just your girls into the top if you like to consolidate your bring-alongs. I'm just hitting refresh 40 times a day, waiting for more colors to pop up. Home run on this one, Lu!

Awkward pockets, great support
I went into lululemon to try on the allsport bra and came out with this one instead- I liked the support, better. I'm 5'9, 150, 34b, and the 6 fits nicely- I wiggle a little to get it on but once it's on, its supportive and comfy.
It's definitely a compression bra- I'm all squished in there, but it holds me in tight for cardio circuits and long runs.
I would not use the pockets- they are right in front of your boobs and would look very very awkward if you stuck anything in there. I do think the reinforced seaming for pockets helps the support in front.
Reading reviews below-- I now have two of these, both bought in store, and I never received liners/pads for either-- was I supposed to get them with purchase?? I wore this to hot yoga yesterday and then went into an air conditioned lobby with my high beams on- pads would have been helpful.

Poor Customer Service
I purchased the bra b/c I had issues with support from other Lulu bras (i.e. energy bra, tat tamer, etc.). Support worked well; however, customer service did not add the liners. Which left an embarrassed me in boot camp with headlights. Not cool, please have the foresight. #notthefirsttime

Perfect long run bra BUT has one flaw...
Tried this bra out for the first time today on a 20 mile run. This is my first lululemon purchase. I'm very picky about sports bras. I chaff easily and hate tight rib-cage and shoulder straps. The bra fits like a glove. It is not overly tight or restrictive. I'm a size 34A or B depending on my training - I wear a size 6. I was able to fit 3 gels and a baggie full of Nuun tablets with ease in the chest pockets. Nothing bounced or fell out while running. I chose not to wear the extra padding to see if the gels would chaff me through the bra. Happy to say - ZERO boob chaff! It was about 90+ degrees towards the end of my run and I really enjoyed the open back portion of the bra. Maybe it's just me, but swear I felt the bra get cooler when I started sweating. The ONLY problem I have with this bra is the seam on the rib-cage band. The band is one continuous strip that meets and closes on the right side of the rib-cage. I feel it is a huge design flaw to have placed the closure there. It should be moved to along the spine where your back indents. The stitching on that seam is very rough and bulges out. About half way through my run the skin in that area began to ache. When I took off the bra, I had a deep red welt and indentation where the seam had been. I'm sure it will be gone by the end of the day, however it had me wondering what would happen if I wore this bra during a marathon or a 50 miler? I'd probably be left with some nasty chaff or a cut. I still plan to wear this bra for long runs and races ( I even just ordered another one!) - but I am definitely going to sew in a soft patch over that area to keep my skin from being hurt. Hopefully that will fix the flaw. Other then that the bra is perfect!! :)
