NEW! Daily Bra

New Daily Bra (thanks to Megan for the photo). Here's a sampling of the initial reaction to this photo on my lulu board (the one with the fanatics):

"Not gonna lie.. these kinda look like training bras.."

"yep these remind me of my first training bra..."

"WTF there are so many low support bras made by lulu and only one (Ta Ta Tamer) high support. when are they going to come back with something like the bust stops here? That was my fav"

"or don't fix what ain't broken.. make more all sport, energy, cross my heart, free to be.. etc."

"Daily bra for tweens! Make them in the blossom print so they match the child undies pattern lol, as Ms. X put it. I SO wish I could get hired on the design team. This is terrible."

I agree with the comments that these look super juvenile... i have a larger bust and its getting on my nerves that every bra that has come out lately is low support.... i love the energy bra! please bring it back with some fun colors!!

Ugh...I'm definitely NOT paying $40-ish for this basic crap.
This looks like a 3pack for $15 at Target

Definitely agree with the poster who said Lulu needs more supportive bras. I love the Ta Ta Tamer but would love even more if there were more full support options.

regardless of the fact that the bras look like training bras lol the purple color is AMAZING. I need to have that in a CRB or even better WU's. Yp that's be awesome. and the pink is pretty great too. So let's focus on the positives!

It would be silly to pay $40 for these bras while I could buy 2 more affordable and better color ones from Nike or Under Armour

I am starting to be concerned that some of the details and construction that make lulu..lulumazing are going by the wayside? These daily bras and floral pattern look cheap to me. I hope it is just a phase.

I bet these are better on and in person. I used to own a similar one from a few years back. Didn't look like much of anything on the hanger but I tried it on and loved it. Looks like it will have a similar shape to the layer me bra which is what I usually wear for layering and it gives nice lift.. Totally agree lulu needs more high support bras but these are great for daily wear (as the name suggests) or hot yoga for the smaller to midrange bust.

I am small chested (36AB) and I am definitely looking forward to trying this bra. None of the other lulu bras fit me right. They all dig into my traps and make red marks. Then the ones that do have adjustable straps will fit me poorly in some other way. I don't think it looks like a training bra. To me it is very similar to the free to be bra but with vertical, non-crossing straps that are adjustable.

Haters need to calm down. Let's take a page from your tweenage years: if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it.

Proportionally, the sports bra market is very heavily weighted towards the well-endowed, leaving few options for the less-chesty. Plus the lululemon crowd never stuck me as a busty bunch - just look at the pictures of the educators... they are mostly thin, fit, and don't have girl-support issues. So, I am stoked to see an everyday bra that I can use in yoga and for travel. And when I want more support, there are other options out there.

Large chested women can be fit and I have seen MANY MANY educators in the MN area that look great in their lulu and have curvy figures. People come in all shapes time time to embrace.

Kristin said...

YIKES, ladies! Fit women come in ALL shapes and sizes.

I like the bra. I am small chested and feel like there are a TON of options for me whether I need a low- or high- impact bra. I feel for those who have larger cup sizes. I breast fed my first child and my cup size jumped from an A to a D. Yikes. I had the HARDEST time finding a bra for running that was supportive and flattering for my temporary Ds. They all looked like Ace bandages w/ cups. they also looked grandma-ish! Ugh. I think I have alot of options in my A cup world and agree that there is a need for more high impact options for larger chests.

Megan said...

LOL love the comments. so true so true

they gotta keep making the energy bra or perhaps bring back the all sport. Lulu does seem to have lots of low support options, like the prnahama or ebb & flow or arise bra.

Anonymous said...

I'm with Carolyn on this one!

Nobody said that large chested women can't be fit. Most of the sports bras out there are targeted toward average to bustier women and provide too much support for smaller-chested women. I love that Lulu provides options for smaller-chested women.

I want to know where you all are shopping if you think sports bras are all geared toward bustier women! I am a very fit 34DD. I cannot wear even ONE lulu bra! Moving Comfort is the only brand that works. I think Lulu, Nike, Under Armour and Lucy ALLLLLL put out TONS of low-support "cute" sports bras! What you may see as high-support really isn't. There is no such thing as a cute running bra for me. Boo hoo. :( Well, at least I'm fond of my tatas.

Completely agree with Anon 7:03. I'm a 32D now, but was 32G during pregnancy. Finding a supportive AND cute bra is tough. I'm wearing an Athleta bra for running now. Don't know what I'll do if/when I get pregnant again.

Haha! Why are people getting their knickers in a twist? This is a blog where people come to review Lulu products and express their opinions, no biggie right? As for the comments about there being a heavy market towards well-endowed women, I totally disagree. I'm not well endowed, however because of my shape and weight loss, I do require a really high support sports bra for my workouts and they are hard to come by, especially if you want something that doesn't look hideous (sorry Ta Ta Tamer). Out of the SEVEN styles that are currently on the Lulu site, FIVE (1. Pranayama, 2. Flow Y, 3. Deep Breath just b/c it's too low cut, 4. Adjust Me, 5. Arise, 6. Ebb & Flow) of them are not high support. So... to me the scale looks tipped towards those who have less on top.

Where are the daggone Energy and CMH bras!?!

I have to be the bad guy and say that I actually really like these bras - I have short shoulders and find that the flow-y straps are too long for me - I desperately need bras where I can adjust the length. These will be good for wearing under non-racer-back tops. I don't if they look like training bras, I always wear tanks when running anyway so no one will see but me :o/ Besides, I don't laugh at the big ta-ta tamers even though they look like watermelon carriers. Be nice to the small chested ladies out there.

I agree with Anon 8:46 - I also have short length in the shoulders and I need adjustable straps to pull things up. So I'm looking forward to trying these bras on.

As for whether these bras resemble training bras - I guess they might a little, but doesn't the Flow Y bra also look like a training bra?

In any event, just also wanted to thank LLA for this blog and all the fabulous updates!

Naw, lulu definitely needs more bras for more endowed women. Most are pretty low support and low coverage. I wouldn't say most lulu customers are not endowed. I see lots of thin women in California with larger chests.

Also, those who said buy supportive bras elsewhere - when you go to Moving Comfort or Champion et. al., they often only have bras in black, white, and nude. The fun of getting a lulu bra is that it will match the rest of your lulu. Anyway, lulu needs to put out more TTTs and come up with a racerback TTT. The Energy and/or All Sport also need to come back. Those had pretty good support and coverage for endowed women.

I'm on the pro-side. I'm teeny and this bra looks perfect for me. I also loved the Layer Me Bras.

Honestly, ladies, I wear these as plain 'ol bras. It's so hard to find a regular bra that does a little smoothing and shaping without looking like bolted-on cups.

My only problem is that as great as many of the LLL bras are, they're not necessarily comfortable on the neck and back if you try to wear them all-day as bras. Even the Layer Me gets uncomfortable after a couple of hours.

Happily, these strass don't cross in back so I think I'll have a new favorite!

Oh -- and the cheaper versions of this type of bra in other stores don't have the same padding and don't hold up. LLL makes them better and I'm very grateful they do.

I just ordered this bra in a couple of different colours, I think it's very simple, but shouldn't a sports bra be smooth and simple?
Yet it is very pretty and I'm sure it'll provide my chest with the amount of support I need.

To those who think it looks like a "training bra", well, IT IS a training bra, or isn't?? It is under the "Sports Bra" category on the lulu web site. Granted, Gap Body has sold this model for years (have a few old ones) but they are 100% cottom. Nothing like Luon and also Gap bras don't have padding.

No everyone that buys lulu is a DDD cup, after all. But if you are, there are still some lulu options for you. That's one of the reasons I love this company: It designs a for all shapes.
