Like this shirt.. but
I love the style, colors and material of this shirt. However, it just isn't made for those of us with any curves. Its tight through the shoulders & bust, baggy through the center, and the waist rides up on my hips. I'm an athletic 36-27-35 and can't quite get a size that fits. Any suggestions for a better option?

Cute but nervous...
I love this shirt, it's very comfortable. However, I am so nervous I am going to put a pull in it because of the prior reviews!! I chose the mint green and dark green combo and love it. Looks much better in person than on the model. I also have to mention this shirt is extremely flattering on. I feel super skinny in this, love it! Want to get the white next as I think that will look cute with leggings and jeans.

I love this tshirt. It sits at the hip, and is a great length. The short sleeves are also a good length. The material is soft and stretchy, and lightweight. A good option for warmer activities when you are looking for material to breathe. This shirt is available in great colour options- I purchased pop orange with a wonderful polka dot pattern.

I bought this shirt in the polar cream thinking it was ivory. It is really a khaki color, and it looks like it got washed in mud. The pictures on the website are extremely deceiving as to the color. The lace design that I liked is barely noticeable which was also disappointing. The length is extremely long for a shirt designed for running. It came down below my butt, and I am 5'5". Finally, the sizing was not at all like the size chart said. The size I ordered was very large given that I was slightly larger than the size measurements for the size I ordered. Needless to say, I returned this shirt. Too bad, I will be out the $5 to ship it back.

I really liked this shirt at first as it's comfortable and breaths easy when you work out. However, as multiple other people have reviewed, this shirt material picks very easily. After only one wear, I had 3 different areas that had picked. This is not the quality that I expect from Lululemon.

got this in black. wore it the next day to a 5km run & then group boxing. LOVE the way it feels on my body. was worried it's going to snag but no problem at all. i felt dry the whole two hours of exercising. i want another piece already. thank you lulu!

Loved it - disappointed
I LOVE the fit and softness of this shirt however as you will read in the other reviews the shirt does snag extremely easy. I have been incredibly careful with this shirt and worn it very few times (max 5 times total) but have managed to get a small pick in the centre of my chest. I will only assume this teensy hole will continue to increase with wear and wash. I've spent a lot of money for a shirt I can't even wear now and am extremely disappointed. $60 for a tshirt should be good quality and last a long period of time.
I called my local Lululemon store to see if they had any suggestions or could send it away for repair. Unfortunately they were very unhelpful and said because of the type of material and I didn't already buy it like that, there was nothing that they could do. :(

not like the old style at all!
i have quite a few of the older run swifty tees that i purchased in late 2009 - early 2010 that i still wear, so i never really bothered to purchase new ones (if it ain't broke, don't fix it). but during a recent visit to the store, i tried on the current ones, mostly because i was smitten with the polka dot pattern. gosh! what a letdown!
these shirts feel less well-made than the ones i have put through the ringer for 3-4 years at crossfit and bootcamps. not nearly as flattering, and i don't know how they will hold up to extensive use.
i will not be purchasing one of these any time soon. hopefully my old trusties continue to hold up!

Way too long
I love the turtleneck version of this shirt and I wore it all winter while skiing. I was excited to try on and purchase the short sleeve version, but I was really disappointed this afternoon. I think it looks sloppy since it is so long. I really do not like that there's an overload of material bunched up around my hips. When I asked the educator if I could get it hemmed she said it wasn't possible because of the elasticity on the bottom of the shirt. I think it needs to be at least 3 inches shorter for us petite ladies.
Sidenote: Every time I'm trying on clothes at my local lulu store I feel like the change room mirrors make me look a lot heavier than I actually am...am I the only one? I hate trying on clothes in the lulu dressing room because the mirrors in the cubicle make me look huge!

Love but snags
Is there a way to get a replacement shirt for one that snags right away? I just got the flare/inkwell run swiftly and the first time I wore it it snagged right in the front. I was hoping it would not be noticeable, but it is and it really bothers me. Can I exchange it?
