Inversion Tank II
To Give You an Idea of the Fit...
I bought this shirt when it was on sale for $19. The one thing is... I'm a girl. To give you an idea of just how small it runs, I've included a picture.
I'm a fairly petite, 5 ft, 130 lbs. This top really is like a second skin on me, and I haven't met many guys who are as small as me in terms of my upper body. I ordered a small and it fits like a glove.
It is a great shirt though. The material is soooo soft and comfortable to sweat it. I wore it as my first layer to go skating the other day and it kept me warm without being overly stuffy.

Not so great
I used to wear Lululemon back in Vancouver when it was just starting out. They made amazing men's tank tops back then....they were pieced from multiple shapes/patterns and flat-seamed together to make a form-fitting top without being too tight. Obviously this is a more time-consuming, laborious and therefore expensive process, but it resulted in a superior product. These tank tops just rely on being tight in an effort to be fitted. I wish Lulu would bring back the quality.

Best Of Its Kind
This is by far the best tank ever introduced by lululemon. I picked up one in the store and since then have gotten two more. It fits great, and is ridiculously comfortable. To give an idea of the fit; I'm 6'1 and about 185 lbs with an athletic frame (broad shoulders/chest). I usually wear a "L" in most tops, but for this tank an "XL" is the correct size. It is very fitted. Some reviewers complained about this aspect, but in my opinion that is the greatest strength of this item. In yoga class or in the gym it fits snug, doesn't sag and most importantly retains it shape during the entire workout and also right out of the washing machine. Highly recommended.

Comfortable and great for any activity a very functional top. I usually wreck most cotton tops very quickly or find they restrict my movement when sweaty... this top is a great all rounder.
For yoga I chose one size larger than my 5 year basic V T-shirt. It has a little more length and still hugs the body so won't get in the way. The cloth is a nice breath and a good grip which helps spread binds a little more across my arms, rather than all in the wrist whilst my fore-arms slip about (I'm not quite sure how to describe that... but it is a good thing).
I look forward to seeing white ones for capoeira.

I was very excited to finally have another sleeveless option when I saw this shirt. Then I tried this one on... I normally wear a small, and even the large version of this shirt was WAY too tight. It just wasn't for me. :(
Please give us more sleeveless options (and more color) - I know it's getting cooler outside, but it's always warm inside the yoga studios!

thanks from all the slimmer guys!!!
I've been waiting for what seems forever for a top as fitted as this. I'm 5'5 and really slim so I picked up one in each colour and was really very pleased while I was exercising. It lives up to its description but may feel a bit too snug for some (to each their own). It's a tad pricey, but if you're as slims as I am, you know just what a pain it is to find something that fits like this. I also concur with the first reviewer below...some colour variation would be most welcome! Blues, greens, or purples Lululemon? :)

Nice tank top, perfect for the intended use & more
I really liked this tank top. Its intended purpose is for yoga and it would work perfectly. The material is nice and soft; stretchy and snug without being restrictive. The fit is tight, I usually wear a M in most stuff, but moved to a L to get that added room if i were to wear for other activities. Don't get me wrong, in a L it still tight to the body, on my 5' 10" 175lbs frame, just not as snug. BUT with all Lulu stuff, the sizing is always different from item to item. The cost is pretty high, but if you want the perfect TT, this might be it.

Finally my wait is over. Great Shirt
I practice hot yoga and have been waiting for a tight shirt that won't sag when doing down dog or totally fall down around my chin when doing an inversion. This is the perfect shirt. So far I've only worn it once and it's my new favorite (I cannot wait to wear it again in a couple days). I'm sure I'll buy another. The shirt fits tight and clings to you and the length is perfect even for me (comes down to my hip as advertized). I've got a medium and am tall, 6' 4", but skinny, 165 lbs. To wear this shirt you have to be comfortable with your physique and not too modest. I'm hopeful to see some additional colors and maybe some different fabric choices. What can I say, I like options and I really wish Lululemon would experiment with their Men's line the way they do their Women's line.
