Ebb To Street Tank
Pros outweigh the Cons
Previous reviews have said this top has issues with cup inserts and that it fits loosely. I agree with the cup inserts, the material is too thin for them and they show through and get easily misshapen. I'm am going to try it next with a sports bra instead of cups. I do not agree that the top fits loosely. I like the fit - formfitting with extremely flattering shoulder straps - however if you have any tummy issues, this fabric is less forgiving than regular Luon (go for a power Y or CRB). I would purchase again if they offered it in black, but probably not in any other color (thin material shows through the bra and cup inserts). Less sweat wicking, but more appropriate for everyday wear.

I own several lululemon tops that I love so I didn't hesitate to order this one and when it arrived I ripped the tags off and immediately noticed, upon putting it on, that the bra cup things made my boobs look really weird. Additionally, my usual size 10 felt loose. I decided to ignore it and headed to the gym for my 12,000 ergometer workout.
Boy, did this tank dissapoint. At the end of my workout the fabric, now drenched in sweat, felt very limp and was all bunched up around my waist. Additionally, the bra cups were bunched up. I was so embarrassed I ran out of the gym. Too bad I can't return this now. if I decided to wear it again Ill have to wear a sports bra underneath it. For reference Im a small b cup, 5'11, 148 lbs and very lean/athletic (12% body fat).

I love it, but...
I love this tank. It's so soft and luxurious, BUT... The bra cups in it are not so great. They make my tatas look slightly... lumpy. lol. It wasn't a deal breaker though, as I now own 3 of them. For $58 dollars a pop though, surely you guys can fix the bra cup issue? Please?

One huge flaw :(((
What a lovely top, the fit, detail, functional, BUT...those ridiculous inserts! The make breasts look terrible and unfortunately, without them, it's....well, you know :) they are lopsided, shift all over the place, not just this tank, many, in fact have the same problem. I stick with mostly black lulu tops and have fun with the pants BECAUSE of the inserts. Please, lulu, consider creating a few tops with built-in light padding?

Like a hug in a tank top
By far my most favourite lulu tank! It is very comfortable while working out and sweat wicking. The seamless material makes it feel like you aren't wearing anything yet it provides adequate coverage and keeps things in place with the built-in bra. This is one of the only tanks that I own with a built-in bra that doesn't feel like it is cutting off the circulation half-way through my torso!
One thing I noticed though is that it has stretched out a little bit and almost fits too big (almost, but not quite). It was a longer top from the get-go but I didn't mind it bunching around my waist a little. Now it feels a little looser on the top part too but not enough to make me not wear it! Just a heads up.

From the Street to the Studio
I purchased both the Heathered Black and Heathered Fuel Green in this tank and am so pleased! I have used this tank for chilling out, as a layering piece, and then right in the Hot Yoga studio.
The material seems to hug your body in all of the right places and I love the silverescent construction for the no stink gear aspect. Lulu really thought about the straps too as they seemed to be reinforced with additional material so that the top still provides support. The cut is not for the modest as it really highlights your cleavage.. in a good way :)
Sweat can be seen on both of these colours but not in an "I am super embarrassed" way. The material also kept me warm in the cold and was surprisingly not too bothersome in the heat.
The lack of one star was that i wished it had a bit more support. I definitely cannot run in this top :( but I knew prior to purchasing this as the support is specified as light.

Flattering bust, stretchy at tummy
Pros: Very flattering at bust, great cleavage.
Cons: Stretches out at tummy/waist... so annoying and will not snap back after washing. Also a little itchy bc of the texture.
Overall, I think they need to revisit the fabric on this, but the cut of the bust/straps are so great that I did say in the review that I would recommend to a friend. Perhaps if you have a super flat stomach you won't have the stretch issues. I however will not buy this again.

Ebb to High tide
The soft material is super comfy. I love wearing this tank when I teach because it's a bit thicker, so it keeps me nice and warm.
Beeing a 36d, I wear a bra (energy or all sports) underneath just to have more support.
It could be a bit shorter though cause i have to pull it up so it actually sits on my hips (I'm 5'8).

Love this tank- however, I sweat a lot and I bought the berry color. Wore it to my barre3 class and the sweat did show through. Didn't bother me but it doesn't wick away like a Power Y tank. I will probably wear this out and about as a cute, stylish tank more than I will wear it to work out. I have a small chest so it offers plenty of support. Beautiful on and very comfortable. I'm 5'5 and 135lbs. I wear an 8 in all lulu tanks.

Good But Stretches
The gal helping me never informed me that it would stretch out so drastically. I'm super small and when things stretch out they begin to look weird and I appear off kilter. Not something I fancy. Once it is stretched it doesn't have the same appearance or feel. It just sucks I regret my entire purchase except for the headband! I purchased Lulu in hopes it would live up to its name and I'm just sad it hasn't because I dished out a lot for it.
