Great workout top
I have been collecting different colors of these tops for a while now because they work so well in the gym. They are a flattering cut as a muscle tank top and are very comfortable in all aspects of fitness (weights, running, circuit training, etc.).

I thought the other people's reviews would deter me from buying it because it fits "long." The description says hip length just in case you missed it.
I love the fit and when I do pull ups and cleans, my tank doesn't rise. Lululemon is genius!

DISREGARD BAD REVIEWS AND TRY IT. AWESOME SINGLET!
Luckily, I disregarded the bad reviews and ordered this singlet. It fits Precise-ly how I like it. See for yourself with the pics I attached. I'm 5'8" 140 pounds and I have on a small. No disrespect to some of the bad reviews on cut and fit but this isn't a one size fits all body types. The Silverscent fabric is lightweight, wicks, and stretches for ease of movement. This is the perfect singlet for me. There's only one thing left for me to do and that is to stock up on the colors before they run out. Another home run for lulu.

best for bikram
For hot yoga, I can't think of a better top. Everyone is different, but I sweat buckets in hot yoga. Any top I wear is soaked in class, and if it were sleeved with a crew neck, it would feel like a straight jacket. Singlets are a must for unrestricted movement, and this fits the bill.
I notice some complain about the length, and others about the fit. It gets down to height & body type I suppose. At 6'4" and 195 lb, the Large fits fine & certainly isn't too long. This might just be worth trying in the store, before buying more online.
My only disappointment is that every time I get to a Lululemon store, whether in the US or Australia, there seems to be endless sleeved tops & typically one singlet in one color. Would like to see more singlet options, especially in more colors. The 6 color choices online as of this post is a step in the right direction.

Don't let the negative reviews stop you
I think this tank is one of the better tanks that Lululemon has produced. Despite all the negative reviews, it is stylish, functional, and lightweight. It's easier to wear than the Metal Vent Sleeveless and is great for high-intensity interval training. It also shapes with your body, so it is easy to inspect your form while doing workouts.
I am hoping there are lots of happy customers - because I'm extremely happy with this tank and hope Lululemon will continue to produce this with lots of new colors.
I think those who are happy with the tank won't bother to post a review, but those who are unhappy will make sure their discontent is known.
This tank is much more form fitting than the other Lululemon tanks. While it's nowhere near the tightness of a compression shirt, if your body fat percentage is above 10%, this may not be the best top for you to wear. Bottom line is - if you don't have the build the models in the picture have, you probably should avoid this tank until you reach below 10% body fat.

Fit Issue and Concern
Despite the concern with the other reviewers' remarks on fit, I was in need of another tank and I went ahead and purchased this singlet. I really like Lulu's silverescent fabric, however the fit in this singlet version can be a bit awkward and will try to clarify.
While it is a little fitted, the cut for the arms in front is too wide and you will feel the edges on the front be taut on your shoulder...aka 4th photo from the top. Rather than the tank sitting on the top of your shoulders, it kind of sits on the front of your shoulders with its edges. That's where many of the reviews below remark on. The cut in the back is also a bit too wide and will drop the singlet a little behind the neck. I really don't have a problem with that, but I do have a problem with the singlet being taut in front. I didn't have problems doing yoga in this singlet, but it is tight in front despite Lulu saying "roomy armholes."
This would be a great tank if Lulu corrected the fit with something like the Precise Singlet (except for the length) vs their Precision Singlet. However, they continue to release different colors in this tank. If you are considering getting this tank, check it out in the store. I would have purchased a few more if the fit worked well, but I'll wait until they stop releasing this version and change the fit of their singlet.

"Love Red" is Not So Red
I bought this mainly for the color. I love Lululemon for workout clothing. The shirts and shorts are great for weightlifting due to the extremely lightweight, breathable, yet durable material. My main complaint with them is the often limited color offerings. Most men's items are limited to black and cool palates. When I saw the many items in "love red," I was ecstatic.
I purchased three different items in this color--two shirts and one pair of shorts. All three were different colors. This tank top was the worst of the lot. The material is different on the top half of the shirt from the bottom and it makes the color seem inconsistent. Worst, it is not red at all. Love red implies to me a rich, primary red. On this shirt, it is best described as orange; salmon to be more specific. The cut looked a bit blocky, too, yet I did not bother trying it on. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing it. I sent it back.

never as good as the first
It's a shame they had to cut everything so thin. The straps are tiny and the cut outs are very loose fitting. Unless you are huge, you fill swim in the shirts. But I am a small and thought I would try it.
I have another older model which is a sleeveless shirt and is great! Wish they would continue to make something more sleek and complimenting
nice color options, crossing my fingers they will come out with more sleeveless style tops for guys

I personally love this tank, i've purchased all three colors. It looks better loose, opposed to tight fitting, so if you usually wear a small, try the medium. I can see why it would be unflattering to certain body types, but hey thats why we work out, to improve our health and see the progress on our bodies, and this tank shows all that! Thank you Lululemon!!

Unflattering and Restrictive
I really needed a couple of singlets and I had a gift card, so I impulse bought one of these and one of the "Ease Singlets."
I ignored the reviews, and I'm sad to say that they're all accurate. The cut is unflattering and the arm holes (which are said to be roomy in the product description) are cut too close and are quite restrictive.
Too bad. The Ease singlet was fantastic, highly recommend it over this, which I will be returning ASAP.
