Run: Swiftly Tech Racerback *Stripe
Not satisfied especially after 1 wash
The fit wasn't what I expected but more than that after just one wash, alone in the washer on delicate, it came out snagged and with holes in multiple places. I realized this fabric was delicate when i purchased it online but didn't realize just how sensitive it is to a spin in the wash. So disappointed!!

I was excited for a stripped version of this tank similar to the other run swiftly tanks. The fit was great but snagged a big hole in the shirt immediately in the first wash before even wearing. I'm disappointed by this tank especially there is usually high quality with Lululemon products.

Love this tank but after just light wear it picked
I got this tank in black and white stripes right after Christmas. I've worn it several times (probably 12-15) for running and yoga, washing it (hand wash) after only every couple of wears. It currently has three or four small "picks" in the fabric, but I haven't done anything to warrant them like pinning a race bib, rolling around on the concrete, etc. Is there any way I can return this item for store credit after wearing it so much? The stripes on the fabric really show the pulls, and while I love the tank, I hate how it looks now.

too delicate for normal use
I bought this shirt prior to running my first half marathon. While it is super cute and was very comfortable, the safety pins from my race bib caused 2 huge pulls on my first wear. I'm disappointed that shirt made for running is too delicate to stand up to a race bib--especially at the price!

I'm 5'11, 175lbs, got my usual Lulu size 10, the fit is great, but this tank does seem shorter than the Swiftly V-neck t-shirts. Zing pink color is brighter and more Barbie like than the photos show, I love it, makes me miss summer.
Wash this baby gently in cold water and lay flat to dry, because the fabric is quite delicate. It's a great tank and is worth the money imo, just needs gentler care than some other Lulu tanks like the Cool Racerbacks for example.

AMAZING Tank, thanks for the size tips!
I followed everyone's tips in the comments and ordered a size larger than my usual run swiftly tank. I usually order a 6 but got the 8. I am happy I did as it fits perfectly!! I wish they had more colors of this one! I ordered the pink one and the stripes are a really nice accent!!! Blues, greens, even more pinks would be delightful.
Don't hesitate on this one, it's an amazing running tank!

Ordered this online... and I would have loved this shirt, since the material is to die for and the black/white stripes are really cute and will also match all my colored lulu crops... however the sizing of this shirt is SO messed up.
The armholes go right up to my armpits, so they get full of deodorant as soon as I put it on, and the neckline is also higher than I'm used to with other swiftly tanks, which I always try to avoid since I'm a little chesty and it looks weird. These issues are AFTER I sized up to a size 6 from my usual 4 for a more roomy fit.
Definitely recommend trying this on in the store before purchasing if you can.

Super Cute....Stripes are Unique!
I love the Stripe Swiftly Tank in white. It is so unique.
I did find that it fit TTS to my other swiftly tanks. I typically wear a size 4 in CRBs. I can wear size 4 Swiftly tanks, but I have been buying them lately in size 6 for a slightly looser fit.
I think some of the quality issues are a hit and miss. I recently wore this tank to a trapeze class. I had a safety belt around the outside of the tank. I was pulling at it and twisting as I swung from a bar and it was fine.
You do have to watch out for the inside of the Swiftly. It is pretty sturdy on the outside, but the inside can be quite delicate....if you pull it bad enough on the inside, it may show through.

Cute top, poor quality
The tank is super cute and soft, however after one wear and wash, the shirt is destroyed. I have many lulu tops and this is the only tank thus far that I've had an issue with. I wash lulu clothing together only, ensuring that my clothing stay in the best shape. The tanks thread somehow became loose in one area and tightened in a different area, completely messing up the pattern. I plan on trying to return this top to stores tomorrow.

Super soft and light
I really like how soft this tank feels. I think the tank is very flattering and fits nicely. I debated between going with a size 4 or 6. I finally settled on the size 4 because it fit better on my shoulders and wasn't as long as the size 6. The size 6 was longer and loose on my shoulders. For size reference I am 5'3", 117lbs, 32DD, 26" waist, and 35" hips.
