*We're always innovating to bring you bright colours. Get the scoop on how to care for our vibrant new colour,raspberry glo light.
why we made this
Simplicity is a beautiful thing. We made this bra because we wanted a seasonless classic that we could wear under any tank, for every activity. We gave it a COOLMAX liner and added mesh in strategic places so we can blow off steam when we work up a sweat.
the racerback design means this bra is invisible under most athletic tanks
thin straps allow you to move and twist with ease
mesh panelling between the cups and on the back helps sweat evaporate quickly
chafe-resistant elastic band under the bust provides support where you need it most
absolutely love this bra!!
I have one in every color. My absolute favorite bra. Super comfortable and over time it fits like your favorite pair of jeans, wore in and super comfy but does not loose its shape or stretch out.

Works for me
I was looking for a semi-supportive sports bra that wouldn't give my 34B chest that pancake look or feel. $42 is a considerable investment, but as soon as I put on the Flow Y bra it was comfort all around. I'm 5'2 / 112lbs and got the size 4 and it stayed in place for cardio/cycling/yoga. I've taken to wearing the Flow Y bra daily, because they're so comfortable and it's like I'm not wearing anything at all. My only concern after 3-4 months use is that the ribbing at the top curve band (right above the chest) seems to have lost its elasticity. So I have to take a bit more care with hand washing / line drying. I do like all the color choices and am debating which color for my next purchase!

I have what's probably a first generation flow y bra and love it. I just bought the latest version a month ago and will never wear it again. It pinches in all the wrong places, and I can't go another size up because there'd be too much space in the bust if I did.

Cute but had to order up a size.
I ordered this in the green floral design, it was a little tight in the shoulders. I am always a size 6 in lulu tops and bras but this seemed to for a little snug for a 6 so I returned it and ordered an 8. I am 5'5 117lbs and am a 34b in bra size. I have had no complaints about it when I wear it for jogging or hot yoga. It does not dig in or ride up.

First purchase and disappointed...
I shouldn't have removed the tags but yesterday when this arrived it felt okay the entire day and then today I put it on and it does nothing but dig into my lower armpits to the point where I can't stand wearing it. $42 out the door. I'm only 5'4" 118 lbs small B cup, so I'm not sure where the problem lies. It would probably work if it had adjustable straps. I bought a size 6 for reference. I should have known better regardless when I first put this on because the cups weren't even right. They both had weird indentations in them that made me look like I had alien nipples. I even tried working with the material to flatten them out but it wouldn't give so I removed them. Sigh! I'll be a very, very hesitant purchaser in the future.

I bought a white bra back in November/December of 2012 and it fit great. I am a 32C and I got it in a size 6. I thought the support was wonderful and it didn't hurt me like other bras. I recently bought the black one in the same size as I had before (6) and it was loose and the fabric was really thin. I looked at the tag and it was made in Cambodia... my white one was made in Canada. I also compared bras and the black was about an inch bigger than the white one. It was amazing how much of a different there was in fabric and quality. I went to my store and only found that the white bra is made in Canada and the rest are made elsewhere... and the quality shows. Disappointed with the new version of this bra.

Finally time to replace my 8-yr old Flow Y's
I bought my first two Flow Y Bra's 8 years ago. I haven't been kind to them, washer, dryer etc but they've definitely held up their end of the bargain. The "cost per wear" is probably in the hundredths of a cent now. Now that I'm on mat leave, I wear them every day under basic tanks...but after 8 years and hundreds of wears, I decided I should get a new one. Yes, the technology has changed, but I welcome it. Yes, as the other reviewers note, they are slightly lower in the front. But, that's not a deal-breaker for me. If you read the description of the Flow Y, Lululemon wanted an "every" bra you could wear under any tank for any activity. It also notes its not meant to be seen, therefore your tank-top should cover your chest where the bra doesn't. If you spend the majority of your time wearing low cut tops while bent over squeezing your girls out, maybe its time to rethink your life. I snagged the new twiggy print in soot (grey) and it looks amazing. For sizing, I'm normally a Lulu 12, my chest is 36D and the size 12 still fits me perfectly.
Also - how can you go wrong with ordering from Lululemon? I have a 9 month old son, so shopping in store is out of the question. I ordered online on Tuesday, and the package was on my doorstep Thursday morning. I am going to wear my new bra all weekend!

This bra in beige?
This bra is almost perfect to me. After trying it, I will never want to wear a regular bra anymore. So comfortable. The only improvement I would make would be to create this bra in beige. I know, it is not the best color, but since I have lost of white shirts, it is the best insivible color underneath.

Fantastic Bra for AA Cups Looking for Lift
I purchased my first Flow Y IV a few weeks back in Faded Zap and fell in love with how comfortable it is and how much it increased the size of my AA chest. The enhancement looks natural, not fake like a lot of push-up bras are wont to do, and it stays put without chafing during super sweaty workouts.
It's super tough for me to find sport bras that fit properly across my broad chest without leaving an excess of fabric in the front that my small bust just can't fill. For frame of reference, I am a size 4 in Lulu pants, a 6 in most tops, and an *8* in bras - just bc of my broad shoulders/chest. So you can imagine how hard it is to get a good fit up top. But the Flow Y IV works great for me and it is now my go-to sports bra.
I loved the Flow Y IV so much that I went into the store and purchased another size 8 in a different color (the gorgeous Twiggy Power Purple pattern). Unfortunately, after wearing the bra for a few hours while out running errands I realized it was cut much larger than my other Flow Y IV, despite the fact that both bras were the same size and style. When I laid the new one across the old one (which I have never put in the dryer, so it's not like it just shrunk) I realized that the new one was significantly larger in the bust, which had the awful effect of making the bra "open up" across the top when I moved in certain positions (like Down Dog or Eagle arms). It was very uncomfortable, too, and rode up under my arm pits because of the extra fabric. To further complicate things, I had immediately cut the tags and tossed the receipt after I got the bra home because I thought it was a no-brainer that the same style and size bra would fit the same way.
So I brought the bra to my local Lulu and explained the situation. The staff were super nice about it but told me that there was no way they could take the bra back without a receipt. Disappointed that the company I had purchased *so* many items from over the past couple of years couldn't help me out with this issue, I called corporate and in less than 5 minutes they were shipping me a pre-paid return label so I could ship the bra back, and informing me that they would give me a full refund on a gift card - which is great for me because I still want another Flow Y IV! I am *very* pleased with this outcome and I'm glad Lulu cared enough to make this right. They've just ensured that I continue to be a loyal customer for years to come.
Bottom line: If you have an issue with any of your items, don't be afraid to talk to a Guest Educator because they really will work with you to satisfy any reasonable request.

Easy to wear!!
I was given this sports bra by an associate at the deer park, IL store to try on underneath a tank. I didn't get the tank, but fell in love with this bra. The thin straps make it so easy to put on and remove. I am a large A/small B cup - so support is great. I purchased it in the black and went back for white, great staples. Size 6 fits great since I am 5'4" and flux between 131 and 134. Comfortable and cute!! Wore it for my off day to run around and for different cardio and strength training workouts. Love.
