105 F Singlet
Why ruin a good thing?
Let me just state that I'd recommend the old version of the 105F singlet to my friends.
The new version just seems like cheaper material.

not the same
This was my fourth 105 F Singlet. This style has always been my favorite, but not anymore...it had been awhile since I purchased a new one, but the material on my most recent one is not nearly the same. It is so gauzy and cheap feeling that my cheapy Target tanks are better quality. Not to mention that I paid a lot less for the ones I bought before :(

This is still one of my favorite lulu tops. It's perfect for running or yoga or CrossFit. I have it in several colors and I'll continue to buy more.

This tank is incredibly comfortable, but the quality of the fabric (or lack thereof) is a joke. I've had this tank for less than three weeks and there's already a thread coming loose. I understand that the material is delicate, but when I've only used it to run (indoors) and haven't even washed it, I don't expect to have any issues with it. This review is for the black tank, which is actually black with thin stripes. I also have the hawk blue version, which seems to be holding up better, but it doesn't have the scalloped trim and I'm not going to shell out $52 again for something that either looks like a tank from Target (i.e. the new version of the 105 singlet) or falls apart in less than a month of gentle use.

The new version of the 105F tank is horrible!
I am so sad that I have to agree with the other reviewers. I've just received the heathered hawk blue color today and it's definitely going back. The material has changed drastically. It is now thinner, rough and scratchy. It is the complete opposite of the old version which is so soft and it feels like you're wearing next to nothing.
I don't understand why they had to reinvent the wheel. The original tanks with the scalloped hemming was beautiful and unique and the material was so buttery soft. It was a very popular tank that sells out quick.
This was my go to tank for hot yoga. Unfortunately this new version feels and looks like a $10 tank you can find at Walmart or Target. Lulu is helping me save my $$ by making tanks like these. I hope the old version will return soon.

I love the old version of this tank, so I bought the caspian blue, the last version with scalloped edges. Much to my disappointment, the fabric is much thinner, not nearly as soft, and extremely delicate. In addition, the fabric somehow holds onto every little bit of dirt and stain. It has yellowed from sweat (which has never happened to any clothing I own), and has random brown patches on the front, no idea where that came from. The color is also slightly duller in person than online, and the reflective logo is coming off after just two wears and one wash. What is going on with these tanks?!

Prior Version is Excellent
I have been avoiding this tank for the longest time due to the price, but could not pass up the sale price at my local store. I bought a size 10 since that was the only one left (this is my normal size when there is a built in bra, otherwise I'm an 8 when it's a loose top like this one - this top fits true to size, btw, the 10 is a size too large for an ideal fit on me) and figured I would just deal with it being one size too large. I'm glad I did. It is so light and great for wicking sweat. This is my go-to top when I want to go to hot yoga and show off my sports bra but want something loose. I just bought another of the "old" version in WMTM. I agree with the masses: the new version does not look very unique at all. I'm inclined to buy the old version and stop buying them when they are out.

WOULD NEVER BUY WITHOUT SCALLOPED TRIM
I absolutely love the original scalloped trim version this tank. It has a cute fit and feels great on. However, I've seen that the new versions of this tank don't have the scalloped trim. WHY?? The tank looks like any tank I could buy from Walmart or Forever21 without the scallop! I had a hard time getting over the $52 price tag even with the scallop so there is no way I would EVER purchase this tank. Sad to see a trend in no scallops and I'm beginning to think Lulu is completely phasing out the scallops... Guess it's to Ebay for me so I can find some old tanks with the scallop.

i'm over it, lulu. why did you ruin this tank?
i've never seen a company so intent on ruining their name as this company. for the past few years many of us have been disappointed over and over again by the continual decline of quality. this new version of the tank is no exception. once again i was excited for a new colour of a favourite top only to pull it out of the bag to have my tactile senses cringe. it felt like a pair of cheap pantyhose. i put it on and realized it looked like it felt. i'm pretty sure they changed the cut on this as well. additionally, lulu has done away with the scalloped hem on this which was a cute detail. i'm pretty sure at this rate i can get this tank at walmart for a large fraction of the price.
nothing is the same as it used to be. the liner on the speed shorts is cheap, the 4 way stretch is cheap, the crb is cheap. if you're the type of person who doesn't mind paying a higher price for superior quality then it's time to leave lulu behind and move on to another brand.
gross, lulu, just gross.

Blue tropics runs HUGE!!!
I ordered my usual size 6 and whisked the tags off as fast as I could when it arrived! The blue tropics color was stunning, and the smoothe hems were so lovely! But when I put it on I very soon found it to fit just like my 8 bumble berry 105f which I'm swimming in. So now I have a shirt that is too big for either gym or yoga, and no ability to return :( I'm kicking myself for being so quick to remove tags :( Is there anything I can do lulu????
I attached a comparison photo with the detached tags of both the 6 and the 8. This seems pretty strange. Did I mistakenly receive an 8???
