I was pleasantly surprised when I tried on the Glide and Stride Bra today and ended up coming home with it. I am always on the lookout for a supportive and comfortable bra, and this seems to be one. The bra comes up nicely high in front and in the armpit, which tends to be a problem zone for me in lululemon bras. The band is wide and supportive and has an adjustable hook in the back. A couple of the on-line reviews have mentioned they thought the straps were too long (one of them was from a 5'2" lady) but I thought they were perfect and maybe on the short side (I'm 5' 5"). The only nit I can see some people having with this bra (besides the hefty price) is that it doesn't have cup pockets (or at least I didn't find slots for them). I don't use them most of the time but I know some people like them. The bra has four layers of fabric so I don't think coverage is a problem but I know the cups do give a little extra support. I'd put the support of this between an Energy Bra and Strap It Like It's Hot Bra.

Glide and Stride compared to my beloved Strap It Like It's Hot Bra. The SILIH is my favorite lululemon bra of all time - it's the only shelf bra I find supportive enough to run in. The band is slightly narrower than the SILIH but it's wider than the Energy Bra band. The front and back coverage is about the same. The G&S is not nearly as compressive as the SILIH so it's more comfortable but, then again, it's not as supportive.
You can see that the Glide and Stride has a wider band than Energy Bra. The front coverage is very similar in the armpit area. I think the G&S is more supportive than the Energy.
