Besides the Glide and Stride bra I also got the Daisy Dust Illuminight Luxtreme Wunder Under Crops. I've been buying a lot of teal colored tops over the last couple of years and thought these would go nicely with them. The bottoms are opaque.

It looks really nice with the new Illuminight Blue color. This is the Swiftly tank.

It also looks really great with Poseidon.  This is the Sole Training SS.

I ended up getting the Wunder Under Crops in this print but here is a photo of the Pace Rivals, showing the mesh insert is black.

I wanted to like the Sole Training SS because I can always use UPF tops and the Poseidon is so pretty but it's too short and the seam where the mesh ruffles attached to the shirt felt scratchy against my belly. I wish this top was a couple of inches longer. My store didn't have the long sleeve version to try. I though the sizing was a roomy TTS.

The Illuminight Swiftly is super pretty - my photos don't do it justice at all. It's not heathered so it's rather unique among swiflty colors. I hope saturated solids is the future of swiflys. I think I want this color in a short sleeve.

I really loved the color of the Heathered Illuminight seriously light luon in this tank but I totally overwhelmed the bra in this. It's made for A/B cups and I was spilling out all over the place.

I know we were wondering why the Get Low Scoop Tank was back after recently being in WMTM but this time it's made out of pima modal cotton instead of a very light mesh. I like this version a lot better and ended up coming home with the Hero Blue one. I think it'll be really nice for the summer and at the gym.




Glide and Stride Bra - Detail Photos With Comparison to Energy and Strap It Like It's Hot Bras

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.

Glide and Stripe Bra in Alarming, Black, and White. I just bought this today and will post some more photos later.


Get Low Scoop Tank, Invigorate Bra, and Sole Training Tights. The Get Low Scoop Tank is made of pima modal cotton this time around. I bought the Hero Blue one today.  I think it'll work well for both casual wear this summer and at the gym.
