moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Luon® fabric is breathable and cottony soft - we love this high-performance fabric for its serious stretch and recovery
lightweight, stretchy and moisture-wicking, this fabric holds you in and breathes at the same time, making it perfect for all kinds of sweaty business
Heads up – this twist on our signature Luon fabric has all the properties we love (moisture wicking and four-way stretch) with its own unique fit and feel.
why we made this
We designed this lightweight tank with thin racerback straps to allow for open, unrestricted movement in the shoulders. The tight fit is a welcome feature for those of us who have our intention set on a handstand – just because we're inverted doesn't mean our tank should be.

runs long and tight!
the shirt itself is really cute, but runs really long. I could wear it as a dress. Im going to wear it for tennis, so it needs to be hemmed a lot. I am very petite, and got a size 2 which is really tight on me. Its also kind of hard to get on with the built in pads.

I have several of the old ones, fortunately, because the new ones are way too long. They don't even look good on the tall models in the photos. The CRB's are also too long. The only tank that I can buy now is the Run Swiftly tank. I hope Lululemon won't make that longer too.

Disappointed in comparison with older versions
I have two of these tanks circa 2007 or 2008, when they still made an iPod nano pocket in the shelf bra. They're incredible and I still wear them all the time. I've always wanted to buy a solid black version, and wasn't interested in the Light Luon versions as they were way too thin. This weekend I purchased a black one in my normal size, a 6 (5'4", 135 pounds).
While I will be keeping it since it's a lot better than some of the other tanks, I'm not impressed at all in comparison with the older ones I have. The new one has considerably thinner fabric, it's not as supportive (I'm a 34D and normally could wear this without a sports bra comfortably), the straps are too long and keep flipping and twisting. I'm also irritated how they're really increased the length of the top - as a girl with a short torso it basically covers my bum now, which doesn't work well with most pants.
If these were as good quality as older versions, I would buy them in every colour. Sadly, I have no interest in getting these altered (shortening the straps, hemming the bottom) on my own dollar to make these even close to comparable. I am glad they are making more luon versions available in stores as opposed to the light luon, which for me is practically unwearable.
This top still looks great, the lines are pretty unbeatable, but I KNOW this top has been made better in the past.

i bought this tank on sale in the clear mint color and it's great! i appreciate the fact that it comes with pads for the chest area because it would have looked odd with another sports bra underneath. Keep in mind that these are significantly longer than other tanks!

Shrinks - just buy one size bigger
I really liked this top at first. But similar to a review here, it shrunk when I put it in the wash. I have quite a few lulu tops and I'm definitely a size 8 but I feel with the Power Y tanks, you have to get one size bigger.
Also, I don't know if this happened to anyone else but the thread on the hem is beginning to loosen.

I bought this tank in a size 6 (which I normally because I have 2 of them) but after I washed it, it had shrunk to at least a size 4 :( I am always super careful with washing (cold water, lie to dry). Disappointed since I didn't buy this tank THAT long ago and the fabric should keep it's size. :(

One of my favourites
I love everything about this tank - I don't need another bra with it, it's the right length, I like the fit. The only thing I would change is the straps - they are a bit too thin and often roll when I move around. Would love to see it in a nice red again!

This is a fitted shirt, with good support. I am 5"4 130 lbs and found the size 6 fits perfectly. I normally love power y tanks however I bought this one for a trip and after wearing it ONCE it started to pill where the backpack straps sit. Very very disappointed in the quality. Hoping I have exchange it but not sure since it's past the 14 days. Would not buy this style of tank again.

The Perfect Tank Top
I absolutely love this tank top. I have it every single color. I wear them almost everyday, whether its for running or just to wear, highly recommended.

Great tank...but the fabric content is different
So I bought the light green one in the store and the fabric is the best. Very soft and feels great against the skin. Give the green one 5 stars. I went back to the store to get more and the other colors are more stiff and thick. When I looked at the fabric content on the other color tanks it is different than the green one. There are actually a few differ fabric contents depending on the color of the tank. I ended up ordering the blue online and got it yesterday...to my disappointment it is the stiffer not so soft fabric. I will see this morning if I decide to wear to the gym or return. Very confused....the tags of all the tanks say the same thing...I guess it is just luck of the draw.
