why we made this
A true hybrid. Our Run: Swiftly Racerback tank is the perfect stowaway for a warm-weather destination race. It also moonlights as a base layer during chillier evening training runs and is a super comfy companion during Hatha class.

fave all around workout tank
I love the Run Swiftly Tank. I purchased one this summer while training for a half marathon and turned around and purchased another the next week. It is so lightweight and comfortable. I love running in the heat and did some of my shorter runs mid-day in 90 degree+ weather and it wicked very efficiently. Now that winter has rolled around I am taking several hot yoga and hot barre classes a week. I was worried this tank would slip down a lot during downward dog but I tried it one day and loved it. I layer it over a free to be bra.
I am doing a review now because I want to order another tank and there are very limited color options left in my size 6. Please make more size 6's in a variety of colors. I need more color in my life as we move into winter!!

Love this top for my high cardio classes
I teach Irish Dance which is high cardio, all jumping! You really sweat a lot in an Irish class.
This top is great for that, I sweat and it's gone in minutes when I wear this top. The fit is fantastic, it stays put as we leap about the place.
I can't understand what took me so long to try this one, now all I need are pants with matching wicking abilities :)
I know some people size up in this one, but I went with my normal size 4.

Not impressed -allow me to vent
Let me start off by saying two things. First, the last couple of days have been hard as I?m a Lulu supporter, with everything going on with what Chip said about your pants, I?ve had nothing but negative comments given to me at work because I?m a Lulu shoppers and I support the name. Co-workers asking me how can I buy this stuff? So, I?m more than irritated at the moment.
Secondly, last month I was at the Mississauga Lulu store.
I was interested in purchasing the Run: Swiftly Tech 1/2 Zip. When I inquired about the item and asked if it fell apart within a short amount of time could something be done.
The GE advised if it?s wear and tear, NO. She then pointed out how she was wearing a Swiftly T and hers fell apart in the wash and pointed to the big run and hole she had in the shirt.
I thought long and hard about purchasing it, and read the reviews online while I was in the store and decided to buy it.
I then went to the Lulu store in London about a week later and asked the same question. I was advised they stand by their product and if the item falls apart say within 2 years they would be more than happy to come to a resolution.
My husband mentioned to me when we were alone, two stores, two very different answers.
With that said, I love the half zip. I wore it for my warm up at the gym before I headed to do my weights.
I thought, this is a great item and durable too.
I decided to venture out and buy the swiftly tank since I enjoyed the half zip so much.
It arrived yesterday in the mail.
I figured, I don?t need to wash it as it just came from the warehouse and I?ll wear it for training tomorrow.
When I arrived at the gym with bright lights and somewhat awake, I noticed a seam coming undone. I thought, oh no, please don?t fall apart on me.
During training I enjoyed the top. When I got home, I inspected the top to see if any damage was done. Sure enough, the tank is falling apart. It snagged at the back.
When I mentioned this to my husband he said ?the one you JUST bought? You going to contact them and have them tell you to bring it to one of those associates they call something special, but in reality they?re no different than a regular sales associate" (sorry I had to laugh at him, he?s right)
At this point, I?m not even attempting to bring to back to the Mississauga store as I know I?ll be advised its wear and tear. I can?t make it out to London as I?m on holidays come the 19th and I don?t have a store where I live.
I?m afraid if I call this in, I?ll be told ?if there is something wrong with the product we will refund you the money, if this is your doing, we will ship the item back to you? Yup, I?ve been told that before.
On top of that, I ordered another tank and of course no cup inserts came with it. This week just keeps getting worse with Lululemon for me and I have another shipment due to arrive Monday. I don't even need my crystal ball to tell me no cups will arrive in that order either.

Snags after first wash
Purchase this color to get into the sprit for halloween. Washed it once, only to find snags. I owned other swiftly racerback colors, so I'm baffled that this one snag. Wash all my lulu's in cold, and hang to dry.
Compared this shirt with the others, and I notice the material is slightly thinner.

I have wanted to purchase something from Lululemon for a few years now, but never got the guts to spend so much on one item for working out in. Well I finally went to the store and was excited to get my first outfit from here. I purchased the heather raspberry glo size 4. I was beyond excited to wear this to my next Pilates class. We during the class it was awesome, I was already planning out my next color I was going to purchase. I got home and hand washed it, and laid it flat to dry (no way was I going to ruin my new favorite shirt!). Well as I was putting the shirt on to wear it for only the second time, I saw a snag on the back lower side of the shirt. Considering I had only worn this once, to and from the studio, I had no idea how this got there. I have to say I am extremely disappointed in this top. I have not worn it since, because if it can manage to get a snag on it the first time wearing it who knows what will happen the second time. Wont be purchasing another one of these.

Poor Running Performance Fit
Over the course of the past year, I have purchased a Swiftly tech short-sleeve, long-sleeve and now this tank top. I was drawn initially to this top because of the strong sweat-wicking ability in the fabric. I primarily run for exercise and needed a product like this.
I'm normally a size 4 in Lulu tops so i purchased a size four in a short-sleeve and long-sleeve. After a few runs outside in them I became frustrated because the shirt would ride up, leaving me with a crop top and a belly exposed outdoors. I could only wear these tops tucked into shorts and as a layer underneath a jacker.
Once the tank was released I really wanted to try it, perfect for summer! I decided that maybe I needed to size up and tried the six, which is very roomy on me. I'm again frustrated with the performance of it while running. I was on the treadmill last night and it just kept riding up leaving my stomach exposed. This top may be ok for yoga/pilates but i do not recommend for running.

I love, but SNAGS
I love all swiftly technical shirts, however I ordered this particular tank and tried it on right when I received it. Within two minutes of wear, the tank had two snags on it, which turned into tiny holes. I have worn it a few times since then and I've accumulated a few more snags. (same thing happened to my swiftly long sleeves) I try my best to keep away from velcro or anything else that might snag the material. I love this material, but I wish it was more durable and not so delicate.

Perfect work out tank
Between this style and the cool racerback, I literally don't work out in anything else. While the cool racerback is a tighter fit, this one fits slightly looser without being too baggy. It's still flattering and does not look boxy at all. I have this top in four colors and will definitely be buying more. I wear it with shorts and cropped pants, mostly for crossfit workouts but I have also worn them for my runs. I even use it as a layering piece for those fall outfits! (Oh, and did I mention the no stink silverescent fabric is fo reals? Seriously, no smells!) Lulu, you hit this one out of the park. Well done!

Love THIS tank
This tank is perfect! I love the length (skims the hips) and the fit ( a bit loose) I'm sure if I sized down I would find the tank fitted but I love having a bit of freedom in my abdomen. I find this tank thin in material but it's great for spin class or hot yoga. I also play recreation volleyball in a very poorly ventilated gym and get a sweat on basically standing there and the thin fabric is GREAT for keeping me cool.

My FAVORITE lululemon top
This is absolutely my favorite top from lululemon. Just as the description says -- after I've been dripping sweat from a workout, it doesn't just have no odor... it actually smells GOOD! I wear it in a size 4, 6, and 8 to get different "fits," and they all work well during yoga, runs, and dance rehearsal. Wish it came in DARK colors -- most of the "dark" colors are muted, so I wish they were more pigmented.
