why we made this
When we're practicing at the beach, we want to be wearing lightweight pieces that do double duty - we created this tank with a light-support, built-in bra so we don't have to layer up on hot days. Body-mapped panels of breathable Mesh help keep us cool when we're sweating in the sun (no air conditioning needed).

Surprised by all the bad reviews
I got my tanki n the mail and I love it! I am not sure why it has gotten so many negative reviews about the fit, because it fits beautifully for me. I ordered a size 4 (my usual size) and it is slightly more snug than my other size 4 tops - perhaps due to the thicker material? The purple color is perfection as well. I am also happy to see lulu including bra cups automatically with their tanks!

The bust area of the tank fit perfectly (34C), size 6 Energy tank. However, the lower part was roomy and the fabric had odd bulges on the sides which made me look like I had "love handles". I'm a fit, 128 lbs with a trim waistline...so this tank made me look fat! My fault for not trying it on first before purchasing on sale for $39. Wore it to a hot yoga class, very annoying that I had to keep pulling the tank down because it would roll up during downward dog. For $39, this tank is overpriced! I refuse to pay full price for Lulu products anymore because the quality is becoming more and more disappointing.

Just received my Energy Tank in the mail yesterday... I have nothing by good things to say!
The top fits perfectly and it's nice that the mid-section isn't too tight. It's a great length for me - I'm 5'9. I will most likely be purchasing this in other colours. I'll be wearing this to yoga tonight :)

I bought this tank for my sister - we're the same size so I tried it on to make sure it would fit her... I loved it so much that I bought myself one. It moves well without chafing and I loved the fit. It offers really good support. I'm hopeful they'll keep making too much : )

i loved the look of this top when i saw the black online ages ago. i ordered the plum in a 4 for $34 and at a strategic partner store i bought the white one in a 6 on sale this weekend for $24.
i found the 4 to be way too tight in the chest and the 6 to be EXTREMELY loose in the stomach area. it was like there was no happy medium. i love the look of the tank but neither will probably get too much wear unfortunately. the fabric seems cheaper than that in other lulu tanks with the same material.
as i said, it looks gorgeous and the back of it is beautiful, but i wouldn't pay full price for it.

Worth it for sale price
I love the energy bra!! I like the energy tank, I feel it needs a little adjusting with how it flows a bit too much in the mid section and the length is a bit too long but I can probably get it hemmed a bit to fix that issue.
I always size up one when LLL tops have shelf bras since I find the shelf bras always too snug on me in my regular size...it fits well and is comfy for me sized up one.
Over all this is a nice tank and the straps on the back give it a nice sexy edge while providing function and I do recommend this tank however it's not my favorite so I would only purchase when on sale compared to other tanks (ebb to street for example) which I have no issue paying full price for.

$29 made the deal
I tend to be between a 6 & 8 in lulu tops (because of my 34D chest). I tried on the 8 and it fit very strangely - the bottom was very loose and bunched strangely. I tried on the 6 and it was a little better. I didn't love it but I bought it because of the $29 price tag.

I really like the inkwell slalom color and own a variety of products in that combo. I recently went to my local Lulu intending to purchase a different tank in this color combo, but saw the Energy tank on the WMTM rack so I figured I'd at least try it on while I was trying on the other one.
I was very surprised to try it on and see how well it fit and how much coverage it had! I'm pretty busty and the Energy tank was way less revealing than several other tanks I own. I actually ended up buying this one instead of the one I originally was looking for.
So far it has held up great during my trips to the gym. For more intense workouts, I still layer a sports bra underneath for support, but this tank has me well 'covered'. It has also washed well. I have no complaints about the longer length either.
I highly recommend this tank - especially if you are busty and have problems finding enough coverage!

Good support and super comfy
I love this top and have it in multiple colors because it gives me enough support and coverage in the chest despite my larger chest size (for reference I wear a 34DD-34DDD). I love that I can wear the normal size that I usually take in the cool racerback without having to size down to get the right support from the built-in bra. This is the first lulu bra tank that actually supports my chest during a lower impact class, like yoga or pilates or cycling, without having everything spill out the top. I usually mix it with the energy bra for more high impact activities, like running or kickboxing just to be safe, but if you use the energy bra the back still looks super cute! Unlike some other reviewers, I also like that the bottom is a little looser and longer as I have a longer torso and don't like things skin tight, but do know it is looser than the cool racerback. For reference I am 5'7", 160 pounds, and normally wear a size 10 in lulu tops.

I didn't listen to the negative review and when on sale thought I would take a chance. I personally love the looser fitting torso. Most lulu tanks fit far too tight in this area for me. This tank fits nicely in the chest and is not too constricting for comfort. The length is perfect and material is so silky. For reference I am 5'2 107 pounds 32B chest. i would buy another if there was a color I liked as much. Cornflower and paisley is gorgeous. Nice to have the longer length when wearing with a scuba hoodie.
