All Tied Up Tank
Great summer top, but quality not so much :/
After coming back from NYC on a hot summer's day, I noticed the collar was discolored after only a couple of wears. I don't wear makeup or tinted anything. I do wear sunscreen, but all my other white Lululemon tops have stayed white. I'm not sure if this is a fabric issue?
Like others have stated, mine has started to pill all over the front. That part of the shirt hasn't touched anything abrasive, so it should definitely not pilling--and I wash it on delicate.
I wear Lululemon almost everyday, but I'm very disappointed with this top. Lululemon is not cheap, which I don't mind if the quality's great. I'm not sure what to do, because I'm too afraid to bleach and obviously I can't do anything about the pilling :/

I love everything about these tops.
I have both the heather grey/blue and the striped grey/pink colors and I adore them both. I wear them differently than in the photos-- tied up tight to make a form fitting crop top. I've worn this shirt to the gym and out at night and gotten compliments in both contexts. Vitasea is my favorite Lululemon fabric. It is soft but still lightweight and feels durable. I'm eagerly awaiting more colors.
I bought a 2 and its perfect but I wear a 4 in more form fitting Lululemon tops.

Fabric super soft
Love the fabric and it is super cute when tied in the back. The shirt is a little thin so if you have any problem areas around the waistline, it isn't as forgiving if you have it tied. If wearing loose (not practical when cross fitting, etc), then it may be fine. Very comfortable tank. I've only washed mine 1-2 times each but no issues yet.

Love it .... But piles up
I wanted to 5 stars love it ... But after the first wash my tank has pile up in the underarm are. Guess i'm not buying the other colors as this was dissapointing, i mean you expect more for the price!
Use it to and from only, really don't understand why this happened :-(

Not for bustier girls
Ordered this tank in heathered opal but ended up returning. Color is really great, fabric feels nice and soft, but fit isn't right for me. I'm fairly busty which was creating some gaping on the sides. I think this would fit nicer on someone with a smaller chest. I liked the look of the tank tied up at back - would be really cute in the summer. Not crazy about the look untied but that's just personal preference. I also noticed the shirt already had a pull in the fabric which would eventually cause a whole. I could see it easily snagging on things which would be a little annoying.

Love the cut and fit but poor quality
So excited to get this top! Loved the back and the fit was surprisingly feminine and flattering. Unfortunately after closer inspection when I got home the fabric was ALREADY pilling around the collar before I even wore it! Has to return this :(

Cute Muscle Tank Variation
First glance at this tank online didn't make a blip on my LLL radar. However, on a trip in-store, I tried it on. I'll always grab a style or two different from anything in my closet for fit and to figure out if it's flattering.
This tank is super cute on! The white color, to my surprise, wasn't that great looking on and the material is slightly sheer and unattractive. The other two color ways: pop stripe and heathered calm blue are so much better. I ended up buying the HCB and have been wearing it non-stop for a few weeks.
With the HCB color, the sweat doesn't really show after a hard workout (I sweat buckets...) and it's in-line with the trendy "marl" effect on so many brands' pieces these days. The material is super soft. I find myself touching the fabric because it's so soft, which I call athlete's silk. LoL. I'm petite, but the size 2 fits like it's tailor made and looks great both open and tied in the back.
After washing, the lower hemm does fold a bit but it's past the thread area so I don't really mind. I'd love to see this tank in a wider range of colors and at a lower price point.

Breezy and beautiful!
I love the fabric on this top...super soft and comfortable. The back is very cute and obviously allows a lot of air to flow through. I wore this to a Crossfit workout during the super hot August weather in TX and it stood the test. Sometimes it's nice to not wear a tighter CRB tank! I like that it's semi-adjustable so I can tie it tighter or a little bit looser. I would definitely recommend!

Love the open back
I have this tank in white and the dune/light pink stripe in a size 6, and I love them both (for reference, I'm 5'4" and an athletic 140 lbs)! The tank is super light and comfy, plus I'm a sucker for anything with an open back that lets me show off my favorite lulu sports bra :-) I also appreciate the high neck in the front; it helps me from worrying about showing too much cleavage, especially when I'm on the spin bike. My only suggestion is to make this in more colors and preferably some darker colors (black, navy blue, etc)! I'm a little worried about how the white will hold up over time (I typically avoid white workout tops, but this top was too cute to pass up). Either way, lulu, please keep this tank in your line-up! I love that I can wear it for a workout or to run around town!

Best Indoor Cycling Tank Ever?
I am so loving this tank for indoor cycle classes. The open back really helps me stay comfortable temperature-wise;I love to sweat! The open back brings my attention to maintaining good upper body form on the bike (which I didn't expect). I appreciate the high coverage in front, because no body needs to see that unless they are paying good money! You should know though-that the Vitasea fabric is very thin. If you buy the white, be prepared that post-sweat, THINGS WILL SHOW. Pre-sweat, you can't really see anything. I did not order up and I found this tank TTS, even though it is loose fitting. I am always a 10 and am a 10 in this. Lulu. please make this tank in a less see-through fabric and in different colors!
