by lulujess Declining quality....
These WERE the most amazing, wonderful basic tank tops ever. Love the length for my 5'10 body, colours were great, quality was fabulous. I have about 20 of these. The last one I ordered though was awful. Like many other Lulu pieces lately, the seam completely unraveled around the waist. It was my third time wearing it, and I've only wore it casually for walks or under a cardigan at work. I'm afraid to cut the string or do anything with it. So, finally the declining quality has hit my Lulu wardrobe.
Also, what is with all the awful colour choices lately? Every time a beautiful, vibrant solid coloured tank comes out, it sells out instantly. Obviously customers want this. So what does Lulu keep making? Drab yucky colours, or cheap looking prints that end up staying on the site for months then going to markdown. Lulu made plenty of luon items in the recent gorgeous Sapphire Blue or Cranberry colours, why couldn't they make Cool Racerbacks in this?
Fix the seam issues, and better colour choices, and customers will always flock to this staple.

Rated 3 out of 5 by comet6comet Extremely Small
Purchased this shirt for my daughter as size 2 in bleacher stripe white iris flower in the We Made Too Much section. This shirt is extremely small....about a girls (child) size 10 across. I also bought the bottoms which were also tiny. I compared the bottoms against other size 2 Lululemon bottoms we have, and there were about an inch smaller laying flat.
I wasn't thrilled with the colour either. It looks more vibrant online. You can't see it online but the white has some grey lines across it that makes the shirt look like it's dirty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ATLlawyer Note the color - not black and white
Love this top - great length, not too long (I'm 5'10"#. Only reason for the review is to note the color of the ace spot version is oatmeal and black, not white and black #which it looks like on my computer monitor). Still like it but if you are looking for true white, this is not it.

I had to write this review to echo the other reviews on the recent quality of the fabric. This tank has always been my absolute favorite and go to tank! But this past several months there has been a change in the fabric. Thin, flimsy, and the cut is not as nice. Please listen to your loyal customers and bring back the original quality fabric. The fabric used to be thicker and softer! We miss it!

I recently ordered a CRB tank in the size that I normally wear in these tanks. They have always been my favorite workout tanks and I own several of them. However, like many of the other reviewers have noted, I was surprised to find out that the fabric of this tank was very different from the previous ones I bought. It is much thinner and lighter weight, which is not necessarily a bad thing, just different than what I was expecting.
However, my chief complaint is that I wore the tank once and washed it on gentle in cold water with my other synthetic fabrics and discovered that the bottom seam was unraveling...after one wash!!! I was super disappointed and will be returning it. A tank that costs $44 should be better quality! Luckily, the customer service rep I talked to was very helpful, processed my return quickly and waived the return fee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by svereho Different Material!
I absolutely loved the fit of the older CRBs. These were my go-to tanks for exercise and leisure. I've recently ordered a couple of the new colors "digi pixie caspian blue black" and "windy blooms sapphire blue multi" and the material is completely different from the older CRBs that I own. When/Why was the material changed - these tanks have great reviews so I'm not sure why the material would be changed. If it's not broken don't fix it.
I don't normally give bad reviews - but I just wanted plp to be aware that the material in these has changed. It's especially disappointing for those of us that do not live close to a store and have to order online and then deal with the hassle of returning when we realize the product has completely changed.
I was super excited about the new colors in the CRB & so disappointed when I received them in the mail. I have the "heathered bordeaux drama" on the way in the mail - unfortunately I ordered this one before I realized that the material had changed...I guess this one will be sent back as well.
Bring back the Luon (instead of Light Luon) for the CRBs. The fit and function of the Luon seems to be much preferred over the new Light Luon material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CCQN Great Tanks!!
I absolutely love the CRB tanks - I own several of these tanks in all different colors. They're a staple in my wardrobe & I wear one almost every day.
The missing star is for consistency, the material and quality of the tanks differ from one tank to another. I noticed it depends on where they're made (which country manufactures it), very disappointing for the price you pay that there's such a significant difference in quality. I'm lucky to be near several LLL stores, so I don't order online much due to not knowing what I'll get.
I also wish they had more "fun" & bright colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LuluNorthVanFan Material is different depending on the print
I've been buying these for years and the 'Light Luon' is very very different from pattern to pattern. From just the available colors/prints now i have the west2east stripe heathered bordeaux dram,
mini pop stripe black heathered slate and just got digi pixie caspian blue black in the mail the other day. It felt significantly thicker than the others (which were also different but by a smaller margin).
I decided to give it a shot anyways and cut the tag off. Needless to say it did not wear well and bunched in some places and got stuck in others - overall very uncomfortable. It feels like a material you would use for leggings.
That all of these tanks are made using 'Light Luon' is impossible. I rarely return things but I can't let this happen again, I hope they do not give me a hassle when i take it back without the tag. I'll also note that this particular color/print - digi pixie caspian blue black- that I received from an online order did not have a Lulu tear-off white size tag on the back - this is the first time I've ever had a CRB not have this tag attached (or any sign that there ever was one).

I can't count the number of Cool Racerback tanks I own, it has been my favorite workout tank top since I discovered this store. I just ordered the tank in"windy blooms sapphire blue multi" and everything about it was different. The fabric is not stretchy. The fit is too tight (I've bought a 4 consistently in every Lulu tank I own). So disappointing!

This is my first Lulu purchase (after almost a year of gawking online and at other girls at my gym I finally gave in) and man oh man is my bank account in trouble.
This tank is not only the most flattering I've ever put on, it's comfortable, perfectly stretchy, and oh-so-breatheable. I want to sleep in this thing. I cannot wait to buy more!
My only complaint is the length? It's pretty long on me (I'm only 5'3") but I know the length will work in my favor when I need to cover a potential CT mishap. It kind of bunches up a little when I move around in it but maybe I should just try a size down.
For reference I am 5'3", around 135lbs, very small on top with athletic/curvy butt and thighs and I bought a size 6. I could probably size down to a 4 for an extra tight fit.
