All Sport Bra
not what I expected
I purchased this sports bra in hopes that it would provide enough support for any endurance activity - it does not. It's a comfortable sports bra to wear for light workouts, but there was not enough support for me with running.

Perfect if you size up
I have two of these from different times (one solid black from about a year ago and the newer bumbleberry striped one) ... I had purchased a blue and black striped in my go to size 6 in lulu tops/bras. Once I realized I really couldn't breathe in it I tried an 8. Perfect!!!! No digging, cutting in ... lays perfectly flat and has the best coverage. I wear a 34C and am typically a size 4. This bra just runs small in my opinion. That's ok though because once I found the right size I love it! I would suggest trying on for sure!

UPSIDE down OK
I really like this sports bra . For someone who's used to wearing 2 sports bras, this one did the trick. Even with some of the more weary positions, it felt comfortable, solid and didn't provide too much bounce!

I bought this in the solid grey color and I love it! It seems to be the only bra I have found with the right amount of support for when I go to kickboxing. Nothing else compares. The wide cross straps and the rise in the front are perfect for all of my racerback tanks. The only complaint that I have is that I find that the straps can make my shoulders a bit sore after wearing for awhile.

Inconsistent; scratchy seams on the Sashiko Blue
I have this bra in Mauvelous Stripe and Toothpaste and they are excellent. Great support, nice fabric, smooth seams. I'm 5' 2", 34 D, and size 8 fit perfectly.
I ordered the "sashiko star inkwell rugged blue/sashiko cross inkwell rugged blue" color on WMTM thinking it'd be just like the others. Unfortunately, the seams going across the band are tight, scratchy, and uncomfortable. The fabric seems different than the prior two. I just can't fathom how this bra can be so terrible in just the one color and fabric combination.
Lulu, where was your quality control team on this?

I got this bra yesterday and am wearing it today! Its super comfortable and highly supportive. Im actually thinking of purchasing another one. The fabric and seams are very soft and there is no digging going on. Im 5'5", 137 lbs, curvy, athletic, and a 34 A. I wear a 6 all over and I got the 6 in this bra, it is true to size! I bought it in the white and pink stripes and the patter is cuter than I thought it'd be.

I wear my thin strap bra's for yoga, and this bra for running. I don't want my girls jiggling around and this bra keeps that from happening! The straps ARE tight and I probably won't want to use this for a 10m run, but for 4m-5m it's great.
I know this is a little vain, but it made my back/shoulders look fantastic! Love this bra - but don't get if you don't like a super tight bra.

Really really painful
I am new to Lululemon. I bought a couple of things and was overall really happy. I don't usually do a lot of reviews for products unless I have something significient to say about it. I received this product today and tried it on right away very excited to get it finally. It is one of the most uncomfortable bras I have EVER EVER worn. it actually hurts my skin to have this fabric touch me. To start with the elastic band that goes around the rib cage is not covered with a finished fabric. That can't be helping, but the actual pink bra really itches and hurts my skin. I am very very disappointed in this product. would not recommend it. As well, the sizing is not very acurate. I was guided on my size by a Lululemon specialist and told to get a 12 based on measurements...the product didnt fit.

Awesome bra but has flaws
I bought multiples of this bra because it works great when I want to run outside in the summer in ONLY the bra. Some patterns work great for hiding sweat. However, the bra has some seams near my collar bone that dig into my skin and if I run over 10 miles I have horrible scabs the next day, which did not happen with previous lulu bras that were almost like this one. It happens even if I put anti friction gels on, it's that bad. The band underneath also rides up a little bit. I don't know that I would get it again.

HAD TO REVIEW!!!
I've been a Luluer for a couple of years now. From my first pair of yoga pants some 4 years ago, I've never really been disappointed with anything I've received. I have a ton of stuff but HAD TO REVIEW THIS BRA! Just had to.
Normally a 4 in tanks, tried a 4 and a 6. The 4 fits TTS but it IS SNUG. IMO, this is important for high impact activity. Tried the 6 as well, band was too loose for me. Went on a test drive today. 3mi run. Awesome support!! For reference, I'm a 34B 5 1'' about 112. So I dont need MUCH coverage, but am very happy with the support and bra overall. Been eyeing it for a LONG time, but the Toothpaste color came out and I just HAD to order it. Thinking about getting the black as well. I run, lift, yoga, dance. But will probly wear this sports bra for mainly running, gym, and martial arts.
My only criticism is that b/c I got a lighter color, it'll definitely get dirtier easily. Also, putting it on with the inserts inside is kinda tough b/c it is snug. And there does seem to be the slighest bit of piling right in front of the arm. I've only worn it 3 times.
Other than that, I'm super happy with it! Hope this helps!
