made with SEACELL® - the yarn derived from seaweed - and blended with cotton and spandex for an ultra-soft fabric that retains its shape and stays soft after washing
why we made this
We've engineered this soft, natural-fibre V-neck shirt with four-way stretch so that it moves with us but won't bag out. Because sometimes life doesn't stop for us to get changed between yoga class and the rest of our day.
fabric + features
Vitasea™ fabric feels soft and has added LYCRA® fibres to help hold its shape
chafe-resistant flat seams won't rub you the wrong way
Inconsistent sizing strikes again
First off, the v on this shirt is SO MUCH better than the other regular v. It's perfect, like the v neck shirts from 2011 that were spectacular.
However, the length of the 5 year tee shirts is all over the map. From the crew cut to the v neck, from color to color, it's not consistent. And it's frustrating. I hope that small from cut to cut can follow some standard sizing. (I have tried other smalls that are so long they are like dresses and others like crop shirts).
I found the green shirt to be too short and I'm only 5'7."

This is the perfect V-neck. The other Lulu v-necks are way too deep, in my opinion, and I don't feel comfortable wearing them. This shirt is comfortable like the crew version of the 5 year basic tee, but a little added style with the minimal V. MOAR COLORS PLZ!

LOVE the 5 Year Basic Tee, it is by far one of the most comfortable, fashionable and versatile shirts I've ever owned (and I own several). So as much as I want to love the 5 Year Basic V, the collar is just cut wayyy too deep to make it as versatile (or appropriate) as it should be for so many situations. Every time I stop by a Lulu store I pass along the suggestion to make them with a higher V, similar to the Metal Vent Tech V shirts. I don't check the website often, but I just noticed they have it available online. FINALLY!! Now please please please make it in more colors so I (and countless others, I'm sure) can proudly start adding more of your stuff to the wardrobe!!!!

I think I speak for many that like v-neck tees, the regular 5 yr basic v was just cut way too deep for most guys. This cut is perfect! You know lulu gets it right when something sells out in a few days as the black color did. I'd not only buy another black but many others should additional colors be made. Please bring more back!
