Lululemon All Sport Bra - Savasana Camo / Fatigue Green

After taking quite a long break from Lululemon (not on purpose, just haven't liked anything much lately), I finally broke the dry spell and bought the new All Sport Bra in savasana camo / fatigue green.  I just couldn't resist the camo.  But what kind of name is "fatigue green"???  Is it supposed to make me tired before I even get to the gym?




I actually owned a Lululemon camo bra at one time - the Arise bra in camo.  I bought it on ebay for like $30 NWT.  But I never even took the tag off because it was a size 4 and a bit too small for me.  It was so low cut that you couldn't even see it at all when you wore a tank over.  So it ended up just chilling in my drawer for like over a year, and I finally sold it on ebay.  What really surprised me was how many people bid on it... I ended up selling it for close to $100 lol.  That's crazy!

Anyways, so this time around, I really wanted to make sure I didn't get another camo bra that was too small for me.  Having never tried on the All Sport bra, I had to make a guess.  In the end, I decided that I rather have my bra be a little too big than a little too small.  So I went with a size 6.  Most of my Lulu bras are size 6 anyway.  I received it yesterday and have to say that I'm glad I did that.  I think size 4 would have been too tight.  




I actually ripped the tag off right away and wore it for my workout tonight!  I gotta say... even though the All Sport bra seems to smash my boobs down like most Lululemon bras do (and they didn't come with cups, ugh!), it was very comfy to workout in.  It's luxtreme, and it has a pretty wide bottom band so it doesn't move at all when you raise your arms or jump around.  The front actually sits higher on my chest than probably all my other sports bras.  This means you can definitely see a lot of the camo print in the front when you have a tank over!  The wide straps are supportive and yet don't dig into the shoulders.  I do wish the straps were camo too though!  

So even though I wasn't 100% sure about this bra, I actually like it a lot more than I thought I would.  I love unique sports bra designs, but I do also appreciate the no-fuss look of this one as well.  Glad to be adding it to my collection!

    1. I know... And I can never guess right. Usually what I think no one wants turns out to have bidding war and vice versa. Lol I suck.

  2. did you find the camo print turns white when stretched? I know some if their prints have a high polyester content and I am on the fence on this one. thanks!! :)

    1. No, not at all. It's pretty thick and it's double layered with fatigue green on the inside. I tried stretching it out and still didn't see any white. I think you are safe with the bra. Maybe pants would be more concerning.

  3. the name refers to fatigues - the uniform worn by people in the army

  4. The army camo working uniforms are called fatigues. :) I tend to steer clear of camp, but I'm married to a submariner in the Navy so it's a less novel pattern for me. I do love the fatigue color though and hope to maybe see a solid CRB or something else in it.

    1. Well I still don't like the name fatigue. :P The color is definitely nice. It would be cool if they made wunder unders in reversible camo/fatigue!

    3. Sorry, was just trying to inform , and maybe missed the joking part. :(

      Back in 2011 they had wren based camp wunder unders which were great. I regrettably gave mine away when I lost weight. They were very opaque and compressive, unlike the reports of the newish wup's in the camp.

    4. Oh I wasn't joking, I actually didn't know... LOL!

      I so regret not buying the wren camo wunder unders back in 2011! I do remember trying on the camo cool racerback at that time, and thought it felt soooo yucky! Like very rough and polyestery. It stretched around my chest and turned white. Just not good at all, I took it off right away. Maybe that's why I didn't even give the wunder unders a try!
