Rated 1 out of 5 by TERRIBLE TERRIBLE CUT lululemon WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?!?? I've been a SUPER loyal customer for years now, buying dozens of your 5 year V's as well as other products. Before my biggest complaint was the lack of colors and sizes but when you guys finally put up a bunch of new colors I jumped on it and bought 12! Yes, TWELVE new shirts. I thought I was set for at least the next couple years but what happened to the V?? The deeper V you could wear anywhere. Working out, with a nice leather jacket, whatever. Now it's just another stupid work out shirt. You turned the amazing 5 year V from any every day every man shirt to a shirt specifically for people working out or with poor taste. My biggest complaint is now I'll have to find some other brand with super soft, super not smelling, every day shirts. I didn't even mind paying the premium for lulu because I loved them so much. But alas, it looks like its a crazy new world. P.S. at least there's a store nearby I can return them to. Maybe I'll keep one because I really do need clothes February 2, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by What's going on with the hem? I love these shirts?in fact, I'm always on the lookout for new colors and patterns. This morning, I put on my black one and noticed the hem at the bottom is getting ratty?I've only had the shirt for a few months, always wash on delicate and hang to dry. What's going on? I need to go home and see if it's just this one or if they're all in the same boat. I do love them, but hate the idea of having to either have the hem replaced or tuck them in all the time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 1 Year At Most / Where's the Old Design?! Let me be clear: I love the V-neck shirt that lulu USED to make. It was a lower V, a more traditional cut. Now it's just a normal tight-neck tee with a slight V. Furthermore, the material on mine has worn out already. I took it off the other day and it just ripped due to the fact that it's worn so thin. 5 years? I wish. January 22, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great shirt; if it didn't come apart... I've purchased seven of the 5 Year Basic Vs because I loved the fit initially. However, several of them have started to come apart at the stitching at the bottom of the shirt after wearing only a couple times. It looks terrible and is unacceptable for such an expensive t-shirt. I've returned some of them. Two of the shirts don't seem to have this problem though. Not very good quality control. December 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Top My husband loves this shirt! He is into V necks and always grabs this shirt for casual wear. It looks great on and fits true to size. Please make more colors!! December 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by almost a 5 This shirt would've gotten a 5 star. Only 4 because the bottom part is a little loose and wavy around the hips. However, the upper part of the shirt really defines the upper body. Also, I bought it online and I did not expect the material to be softer compared to other 5 year basics. I just wish it came with the silverescent technology December 3, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by white color discolors after wash I have close to 30 5 year basic tees and vs and about 4 white ones. The white ones all discolored after one wash. I voiced my concern through the chat function and the agent was very unhelpful, made me send her pictures of the shirts, and in the end said she doesn't see anything wrong with the shirts and if I wanted to I can take them to a store. I told her the nearest store is 45 minutes away and seemed liked she didn't care. I have spent thousands of dollars at lulu and have everything from coats to gloves to underwear and after this will never shop here again. November 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by best shirt These are these are the best short sleeve shirts you'll ever buy! I really wish they would make a lot more of them and make more basic plain colored ones (Like white, black, blue), other than that, this my go to, "everyday shirt" and you won't be disappointed if you buy one or ten November 12, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great shirt, faded material I have three of these shirts and have no complaints with the product other than the material on two of them has faded along the sides of the t-shirt and the shoulders of one of them. The first shirt started fading almost immediately along the sides and the second started shortly after. The shirt had only been washed a hand full of times. The first no more than three times. In my opinion this should not happen. With that being said I do really like the feel of the material and the fit of the shirt. It really does fit like they say "not too snug, not too loose". These shirts are ideal for any purpose of wearing. Therefore, I rate this product a 3/5. For the price of the t shirt you would hope it didn't fade. October 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great material, wishing a different fit I love this shirt, its material, and the fact that it's a V-neck that isn't too deep nor too shallow. It's a great casual shirt that you can throw on and wear to the park, beach, and even to bed. However, I wish it was a more 'athletic' fit. What I mean by this is that I wished it hugged the body more. I like to think I'm pretty fit (I'm not skinny but I don't have a gut either) and the best way to describe this shirt is that it's too boxy rather than tapering or something along the lines of 'fitted'. Other than that, the only other complaint is I got a stain on one of these shirts and it has been impossible to remove it through 5 washes (yes, I follow the recommended washing instructions).
