I love how trendy this bra is both stylistically speaking and design (great racerback style)
The material is so soft and comfortable. The straps at the back are terrific especially because of luon fabric Lululemon uses - making the material breathable! (This is so helpful and important to have in any sports related clothing).
The cut is just perfect, and covers everything it needs to. The only thing I'm wondering is - if this will sit perfectly for everybody because it doesn't have adjustable straps. However, that being said it fits perfectly for me. There is no chafing and is great for movement. I have no complaints and this sports bra exceeds my expectations. 
In addition to using this for any type of work out, I can most definitely see this as an item for lounging around as well. It doesn't feel like you're wearing a bra at all!

  • $42.00 CAD
  • Moderate support and coverage for yoga & gym, and is a great layer under any tank
  • luon®, our signature fabric: breathable with coverage, cotton-feel, 4-way stretch providing support and allowing freedom of movement
  • Mesh back panel provides ventilation
  • Carved racer back shape for freedom of movement
  • Mesh inner support comes with removable cups
  • Flat seamed for chafe resistance & comfort
  • Preshrunk
- 56% Nylon, 32% Polyester , 12% Lycra Spandex
The thing I really like about this style is the almost triangle type mesh detailing on the back. In addition to that, this bra looks great when it is layered under tank tops (because of the thin straps). It has great functionality and is great for both everyday casual and sport related activities. It fits so nice and close to the body yet you can still be so flexible with your movement. There are no restrictions.
The Mesh at the back is such a great idea, and will be greatly appreciated in very hot temperatures. It is so comfortable, and like the first bra, I can see someone using this for lounge wear as well.

  • 4-way stretch luxtreme™ has inherent wicking & high LYCRA® content for maximum support
  • Smooth cups give shape and coverage or can be removed for extra breathability
  • Wide padded straps distribute weight & won't dig in!
  • Molded hook-&-eye closure for easy on/off
  • Adjustable, crossable straps!
  • Chafe-resistant - flat seams
- 77% Nylon, 23% Lycra Spadex  Lining: 100% Nylon + 87 % Nylon, 13% Spandex




The material inside the bra is more noticeably different than the other two styles. It has a mesh- type feel where the bra padding goes, and there is padding on the straps for comfort. I like the idea of this bra because the straps can be adjusted to your liking, and that it can cross over and be a racer back sports bra as well. The hook + eye closure can be adjusted to three levels, and padding can be inserted or removed like the other two. I think this bra is terrific for everyone but more specifically someone who is slightly on the more busty side.

I think that Lululemon makes fantastic sports bras that are so comfortable and true to the description. I especially love that they cling to the body so well, while still being able to give the wearer flexibility in their movement. You can tell that the brand puts so much thought into the clientele and their needs. These three styles are great staples to have apart of your workout attire and I think no matter what style you purchase, you will be more than happy with the results.
