Lululemon sizing tips
Lululemon sizes range from 2-12. A few items include sizes 0-14. Check out lululemon’s official size chart. But remember that while measurements and size charts can be a great starting point, they may not accurately predict your exact size.
- You should be aware that your lulu size may not match your dress size if your body is smaller than the rest.
- A size 2 in Lulu is equivalent to an XXS. It’s definitely not the same size as a dress size 2.
- A lulu 4 equals an XS, or 0/2. In sizes 6-8 and higher, the size will be closer to your normal dress size.
- Don’t be fooled by the label’s number. It may not be the same as you are used to.
It can be helpful to know the fit of the item before you put it on. The tag on a garment you buy in stores will indicate if it is intended to fit. This is where compression plays a role.
- Items that are labeled lightweight, naked, or barely there will feel looser. You may prefer a smaller size.
- Items like tights that are designed to be supportive and compressive will feel tighter, and you may want to consider a larger size.
How to determine if your lululemon has the right size for it?
The most important part of fit is, of course, comfort. Is it uncomfortable? Are there any seams? You should pay attention to the areas around your waist, bra band, and underarms. Sizing up is a good option if something feels uncomfortably tight or pinching.
See how the item feels when you move around a little bit. You can twist, squat, jog in place, raise your arms, lunge, and so forth. Observe how your clothes feel after you’re done. Did everything stay the same or did it move up or down? Are you feeling the need to make any adjustments? You might want to reduce the size of any items that shift too much.

For gear made of lululemon’s luon fabric, especially pants, make sure there is no sheen to the fabric. Fine more Lululemon Fabric Guide. Overstretched luon will give it a shiny appearance.

Lululemon sizing leggings
If your leggings or crops are too small, the front hip/crotch area will appear overstretched. The fabric is strained and will cause a faint “whiskering effect” at the crotch.
- The tights too stretched across the hips create a wavy pattern. They are too small!

How to determine if your lululemon has the right size bra?
Lululemon bras do not have a specific size for each band/cup. They are generally marked with the same sizes as other items. This is how lulu’s sizes compare with the US band size.
2 = 30
4 = 32
6 = 34
8 = 36
10 = 38
12 = 40
Although the numbers shown above might not be accurate for everyone, they are a good starting point. To ensure you get the right support and coverage, make sure to check the tag.
If you’re a full-busted woman and want to try a style that has less coverage, go one size larger than your normal lulu bra. There are many styles to choose from, with different levels of coverage to suit all cup sizes.
- The “free to be” line is the most popular style for yoga and other activities that require less support.
- The “free-to-be wild” is a favorite for smaller cups, while the “free-to be serene” is great for larger ones.
- The “energy bra” provides medium support and coverage.
