Stuff Your Bra Tank II
why so tight?
I own several Lulu tanks that I mostly wear for tennis and pilates. I am generally a size 4 on top, 6 on the bottom, but with ALL Lulu tanks, I find that the size 6 tops are SUPER tight across the breast and ribcage area. I am a size 34B bra, so it's not because I'm so busty. The main issue is, when I go up to an 8, which I always have to do, I don't like how blousy the bottom part gets. MANY people seem to be giving this feedback -- why don't you change your tanks to reflect that?

best tank EVER
been waiting for SYB tank to return! i have version 1 & the only thing i sorely miss, is the sticky strip bottom. while this version is a tighter fit, yogi's need to know the shirt won't slip during inversions. would love for SYB version 1 to come back as it was. that being said, PLEASE bring more colors options. black is great but the others don't create excitement. LULU designers, surprise & delight us!!

My Favorite LuLu Running Support Tank
I am a huge fan of the Stuff Your Bra tank so was thrilled when I saw this tank!! This has become my new favorite tank for running with a built in bra...here's why: I find that many support tanks flatten my boobs but not with this. I get a ton of support and still look like I have 2 boobs! I also love that this tank is not skin tight on the torso. As a mom of 10 month old twins I still have some loose skin on my belly that can show in tighter tops (especially when wearing low rise capris...a bit of advice for other moms with the same issue, medium rise are much better) but not in this top! I will be buying this top in many, many colors!! As reference I am 5'4"/123lbs/32D and got the size 8 (which is also the size I wear in the bra version of this tank). Great job with this one LuLu!

Love your running tops
This was another top that I was ultimately pleased with. I ran a half marathon in it, and the middle pocket was great for holding shot blocks. The concept of "stuff your bra" is great, and the pockets are rather handy, but depending on what you want to stuff into your bra, it can potentially look weird. Though once you get over that, it's so handy!
I too had the same problem as an earlier commenter with the zig zag stitching coming undone. Luckily I had not cut the tags off yet and was able to easily exchange my top for a different one at the store. I hope in the future I will not have that problem with the current top I own *fingers crossed*

this tank is sooo pretty and very flattering to the shoulders and back. Unfortunately I have found that black is the only color I feel comfortable wearing because I don't find the other colors flattering to my midsection. I think it's because the material, even though not supertight, has a way of highlighting imperfections. Regardless, I love wearing this tank in black.

Fit is too tight
I recently bought the Stuff Your Bra II in a size 6 and loved it so much I came back for more. I ordered a Stuff Your Bra Tank II in a size 6 and it was way too small. This is really strange because I am always a size 6 in Lululemon tops but I couldn't even get the tank past my chest. I exchanged my online purchase at a local store so that I could try it on this time. In this top I'm a size 8 but I have to admit I'm a little worried about chafing because the shelf bra doesn't feel as snug as the size 6 tops do. I hope they can work out the sizing issue in the III version. I am a 34B with a 27.5" waist.

Sooooooo small through the top
I love lulu gear, but my one constant complaint is that all the tanks with built-in bras seem to be made for women with no boobs and no waist. Block people. I'm a 34B with a 27 inch waist, which is (I feel) pretty proportionate. However, I always end up with the same dilemma: buy a size 4 and have the bejeezus squeezed out of my boobs and upper back, or buy a size 6 and have the bottom be so loose that it slides up when I do inversions. Has anyone ever thought about doing cup sizes or putting the adjustable bra thingy in ALL the tanks? It would be so nice to have a lulu-quality tank that actually fits!

LOVE TO STUFF MY BRA!
I love the fit and the fact that I can stick my phone or ipod in my "bra" without it getting too sweaty. I am not a fan of arm bands so love the fact that you can put chapstick, gels, etc, in the front of the tank and not have it look weird or not have a pocket you are trying to grab from behind when on a run. I am a curvy build, 34D, 145 pounds and I bought a small because it gives me that extra support without being too tight.

poor quality, but i love it
I'm extremely torn about this review. The Stuff Your Bra Tank was my first-ever Lululemon purchase last week. I absolutely adore this tank top; it's comfortable, cute, and supports my chest perfectly. However, the quality of the garment is truly awful. After purchasing the top at my local Lululemon store, I noticed one of the zig-zag stitches on the front of it was unraveling. I brought it back, but of course there were no more of the color/size I chose in stock, so we ordered it online. Well, I just got it in the mail... only to find a zig-zag stitch elsewhere on the shirt is unraveling!! I'm going to be exchanging it again... but if the third time I notice the same issue, I will not be buying anything from Lululemon again. Sorry guys! But quality is the most important thing a clothing company should focus on!

Great fit everywhere
I've had some frustration lately with Lulu tops because the mid sections have been maternity-like and very long, even in the tops that are supposed to be fitted. I'm between a 4 and a 6, and usually 4's fit great in the mid section, but tight around chest/shoulders, and the 6 is the opposite. However, this top fits great in all the right places and I got a 6 (5'5", 130lbs, 34B). Very supportive in the chest, and flattering around the waist, length hits just at the hips. The pockets in the bra are what initially sold me - my boyfriend was amazed that all womens sports bras/tops didn't have that feature. I didn't even notice the mesh venting in the back until I was hiking and felt the breeze through the back. Very please. However, I wish there were more color options.
