105 F Singlet
Careful of dye running
I like to wear these tanks over a cool racerback every now and again. I have two or three of these tank tops and like how thin they are. I had already washed my tank a few times by the time I had decided to layer it. After a few gym trips I'd realized it had ruined 3 of my cool racerback tanks from the dye running out of the bright colors when I sweat! I loved the color, which is why I purchased it, unfortunately it cost me 3 other tanks :(

Love the new design
I just purchased a second 105 F Singlet because I love it! I do not have the old design, which I noticed was mentioned repeatedly in the reviews, so I can't comment on the change in design.
I love this singlet (new design). It is the perfect length for me (I am 5'7") and the fabric is so light and the fit is roomy so I stay relatively cool rocking it out in spin class. Sometimes I go for a pint after spin, and it dries so quickly that I don't have to worry about sitting in the pub in a sweaty tank.
I originally purchased a 6 (my usual size in tops) and the fit is loose, but not overly. I purchased a 4 this time to have it a bit more fitted. Depends on your preference!

Old ones were great - I will not buy the new one.
Same as the rest of the reviewers, I love the old style. The fit, the fabric, and the scalloped edges. The edging should not be a big deal, but it is - when you're charging $52 for a loose, flowy tank, there needs to be something special that allows the consumer to rationalize such expense for the product. The old one allowed for that, the new one doesn't - somehow the small changes make it seem like you just don't know how to dress yourself and bought a shirt two sizes too big.
Sad about the changes, but happy that I will no longer be tempted by these.

Must have gotten the old style
I just bought this top for the first time. Reading the other reviews, I must have gotten one of the last of the old generation. I bought the Heathered Caspian Blue and, as in the photo, it has the scalloping that others say is no longer offered on the new version. As others have indicated, the 'old'(?) version is buttery soft and flowy. Really lovely. But judging from others' comments, I will make sure that I don't get the newer version. I am 5'10 and 152 lbs; I usually take a Lulu 10. This fits, if you can describe this shirt as 'fitting'. Good for warm weather/rooms. As shown in photos, you need to be comfortable with your bra showing.

Will no longer be buying these
If my review was for the older scalloped 105 singlets they recently decided to discontinue then it would be a 5 star review! But the new ones? Nope.
Old ones I use for everything - running marathons, over a bathing suit poolside, yoga, just a ridiculously hot day...everything.
Unfortunately they changed the design and got rid of what made this top spectacular - the fabric, the scallop design around the neckline and hem and the length.
The new one is plain. Boring. The fabric is terrible. I can't wear with my speeds anymore as it makes it look like I have no bottoms on (not quite a look i'm going for).
Between this, the discontinued pacesetter, the non-stop black, gray and navy with almost zero color, and non-stop ugly, drop crop, weird length pants, I've pretty much moved onto other companies who actually pay attention to the Pantone color charts, actually listen to their customers and actually care what their customers want. Sorry Lulu, lately it's been one big fail after another - and the 105 singlet change is one of those huge failures.

Please bring back the old style!
I love love love these tops, and they're comfortable, sweat-wicking, and easy to move around in. At least, I used to love them. The new style without the scalloped edges is boring and generic-looking, and it's even more disappointing that it's being released in some absolutely beautiful colors like Blue Tropics, Hawk Blue, and Black Cherry. If those had the old style with the pretty edging, I would buy them in a second, but it looks like this change is here to stay. Guess I won't be buying any more of these.

PLEASE bring back the old 105 F!!!!
This version of the 105 F singlet is a complete disappointment. I agree with the other reviewers who state that the material is not as soft and very thin in comparison to the old version. Also, taking away the scalloped edges now makes this top dull and boring. I purchased two of the new version and should have returned them. Sizing is the same. I am a size 4 in all things LULU except for this top, which I am a size 2.

Please bring back the scalloped edge/old fabric
I LOVE the scalloped edges on the old 105F tanks and have a few of them. I am very disappointed in the new version. It takes away one of the things that makes it so pretty. I also agree with other reviewers that the new fabric isn't nearly as soft as the old. I ordered the heathered black cherry and the heathered hawk blue. I returned the blue and was on the fence about the black cherry. I love the color, which is why I kept it, but am now thinking I should've returned it as well but it's too late. Just not loving it like the old ones! The fabric feels cheap and the regular hem makes it like other tanks out there.
I don't think I'll be buying any more unless the old fabric and scalloped edge are brought back, which is disappointing as I love the fit.
Size-wise I recommend sizing down. 5'6", 135lbs and bought in a 6 (usually wear an 8 in Lulu tops/bras). I also have one in an 8 which is ok, but like the fit of the 6 better.

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 :(
