Run Times Tank
Do I Have to Take it Off?!
5'8", 145, 34/36D
I've been coveting one of the combo tops from lululemon for the longest time, and finally had an opportunity to try one on. The fabric is phenomenal, and I could absolutely live in this top 24/7. The length is perfect for my frame (average-waisted). I was between a 6 and an 8, and while I much preferred the fit of the tank portion on the 6, for the sake of letting the girls breath I went with the 8 (They weren't budging in the 6, which I suppose would be perfect if I were running, but I need my movement for aerials). Aside from this minor inconvenience (hence 4 instead of 5 stars), I would wholeheartedly purchase this top time and time again!

Please keep this in your regular lineup. I've been eyeing this for a while and finally bought one in the warehouse sale. I'll be buying another at full price for sure. It's very flattering and looks good with shorts or crops. It's also very supportive while running but loose and breezy.

Would pay full price next time!
Grabbed this in Bali Breeze (gorgeous color!) in the WMTM section in my usual LLL sz 4, and the fit it TTS.
Went back for more colors but my size was already sold out in Black and Flare.
Nice and snug through chest and around rib cage without feeling too tight - perfect for runs (and looks great while just running around town before/after, too!)
Don't hesitate on this one if it's in stock in your size
Hope they offer it again soon in other colors!

Everything I wanted it to be
My first purchase from Lululemon! I can't spend lots on activewear at the moment so I made my choice from the WMTM section. I needed something that could be worn for (power) yoga, pilates, running, and maybe dance.
So far Run Times is everything I wanted it to be. The tank portion is properly loose but not baggy or awkward, and the attached sports bra is comfortably snug, with only very slight rubbing under the arms. Mine came with removable cups. I'm 5'4", ~108 lbs., 30C, and size 4 is perfect. I also like how soft the tech fabric is. The care tag lists this as having 3% antimicrobial X-Static Silver nylon. My only reservation concerns the logo lock for the drawcord at the hem, which has a metallic finish but seems to be made of lightish plastic, which is practical but potentially fragile. I tuck the hanging cord underneath when tightened. I don't know if the tank would stay up during headstands, but at my intermediate yoga level it doesn't budge.
I have the black on black color with tiny stripes. I think the architectural hybrid look of this design is better in monochrome. I don't know how I'll feel about working out in black once it's hotter, but I can wear this out in my city with street clothes (skinny jeans, a jacket, sunglasses...) and not feel underdressed getting lunch.
Hopefully LLL is just clearing these out to replace with new summer colors?

This is the best running top ever
I bought this top along with some other new running stuff earlier this Spring. The only regret I have is not buying *all* the colors! It's amazing. I sweat a lot (a _lot_) when I run, and this absorbs while keeping me super cool. It's like running naked. I love it.
Also, unlike some of my other Lulu tops that are not the best for running - can we say upper arm chafe?! - this one is awesome. Sits flat, and I can run looong distances. And, the built in bra has been great for my 34C chest.
Did I mention I love this? I wish they would make it in like 10 different colors. I can't figure out why it's on sale!!

comfy, breathable and cute
this is my FAVORITE combo bra/tank yet. I play indoor and outdoor volleyball competitively a couple times a week and LOVE this tank. In volleyball there is a lot of repetitive arm swinging, so racerback tanks (especially skinny-strapped ones like the No Limits tank, power Y tank, tend to rub friction burns at the top of the shoulders/base of the neck) In comparison with the No Limits tank, I also love the "optional" waist cinch. The elastic wide waistband of the no limits tank tends to gradually ride up due to it's tightness, whereas this tank does not. Now obviously this tank won't stay in place if you're doing headstands in yoga class, but for upright action sports it's great! The wide straps are so comfortable, and the bra-part of the tank is TTS (I'm 34A, and wear a 6 in lulu bras and fitted tanks, and this was no different). Also the fabric is flowy and breathable, keeping you nice and cool. I love this feature b/c although I'm in shape, there are certain positions when seated that make even anorexic models look like they have a "gut". You NEVER have to worry about that with this tank. The drapery at the sides allows for optimum cross-ventilation, to keep you cool, especially when there's a nice breeze during your outdoor sports.
Lulu: PLEASE keep this tank around and lots more colors in the future. I bought the Bali breeze color, as black or navy tanks on a hot summer day are a "no-no". Please bring some more bright colors/patterns for the summer. Would love to see this combo with a patterned bra/solid tank, in royal blue/aqua combo or like a light lime green/purple?

Fits very snug and supportive for running. I love it!

This is a really unique shirt. I see a lot of comparisons here to the No Limits but they suit different purposes, apples and oranges. This tank is a higher-support, sturdier construction, and so far it's been great for gym workouts that include full range motion like burpees.
The grey/light flare combo really accentuates a tan, but either way I love the grey/neon combinations LLL makes in general. I think the shelf bra in this tank is my favorite out of all the LLL tanks I own right now.
I'm 5'3, 110 lbs at 34C-32D and the 4 fits great.

Supportive and Flattering Tank
I own this in three colors- cadet blue, bali, and black. This tank makes intense workouts less sweaty because of the fabric. I am petite-5'2" but my bra size is a 30DDD. I found the 6 was a bit too big for me-the bra was fine but the straps were too long (as the straps cannot adjust) and the material was a bit too baggy on me. Size 4 fit me like a glove. The bra portion does fit snug but sports bras are supposed to fit snug to give more support. These tanks last through cardio barre workouts. I wish it came in more colors like fuchsia!

I'll take one in every color!
Lulu bras always seem to run a bit tighter on me, but the Run Times tank fit like a glove. I love that the mesh below the bra reduces the bit of bulge that sometimes appears along the seams of sports bras. The bali blue color is gorgeous and versatile. This is my favorite Lulu purchase in a while. I can wear it for running and yoga.
