a lightweight version of our moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Luon® fabric - perfect for wearing on its own or for layering
why we made this
We like to mix it up when we sweat and we love a tank that can handle it all. We left the shelf bra out of the equation and used Light Luon™ fabric with four-way stretch so we stay covered and comfortable during hard workouts. The long length means we can focus on our back bends and burpees without tugging on our tank.

All Colors Not Created Equal
I just received the heathered earl grey color in the mail today. The color is quite beautiful- like a heathered sea foam. However, it feels significantly thinner than some of my other CRBs. I'm starting to wonder if there needs to be a less dense blend to dye these tanks in the lighter shades? I don't know. Here are my findings though.
I'm a new CRB fan, so I only have a handful of colors: bruised berry, antidote, opal, and now heathered earl grey. BB and antidote are almost a touch compressive. They aren't thick but they're substantial with less give. Opal is by FAAR the thinnest and this Earl Grey is in second place. Opal is so thin you can see through it. It also feels the least stretchy of the bunch. For that reason, I sort of wish I'd sized down. Also within my first day of wearing it, i threw it into my laundry bag and it brushed this giant trunk i have sitting at the end of my bed. It grazed the hem and tore a couple stitches out. I mean GRAZED, did not catch. That is a bit crazy for a workout tank.
So I re-sewed and i still love that tank because Opal is such a pretty color, and I thought it may have been a fluke... but after receiving yet another "NEW LUON BLEND", light-colored tank, I figured it was worth reviewing to warn others. I'm keeping it because the color is fabulous, but if you like your tanks thicker, Opal and HEG are not for you!
Lulu, if you must dabble in this new luon blend of yours, in order to make some of these amazing colors or whatever the reasoning, you should charge accordingly!!! I will gladly pay 42 bucks for other CRBs of the same quality as my original two, but a sheer tank that could have come from forever 21 is NOT acceptable.

Green Camo is Gorgeous
This is my first cool racer back. I went into my local store and I got my usual size 10 in this and it's so loose! This tank looks tight on the model and that's what I was expecting, and on top of that I am rather busty (34DDD) and wasn't expecting this to be so loose especially in the bust area.
Even with this small problem, this tank is PERFECT. I recommend it to anyone!

This is one of my favorite tanks. I own 5 Cool Racerback tanks. They are so comfortable. The long length makes it so that they do not ride up while working out. The material is very stretchy.

This is my first time buying a cool racerback (mind you I own a LOT of Lululemon items)...I was hesitant to buy it even on sale due to the reviews that the material was "thin". I'd have to say it is perfect - the material is NOT thin and NOT see-thru...its perfect in fact.

Decent tank- except....
I have this tank in a number of colors and recently purchased the steep stripe horizontal- the black and white horizontal stripes. It performed well in class. However, when I washed it (cold, no cotton, no fabric softener) and pulled it out to hang dry- the colors had bled! My black stripes were still vibrant, but my white stripes had new purple-black patches all over them!'
It's really disappointing considering I haven't had this type of issue with either the secret garden or savasana camo prints.

Bleeding bruised berry crb
I have several cool racerback in lighter colors, everything is perfect, the fit, easy to dry and wash, and they last for about 2 years now. I bought the bruised berry cool racerback since the color is so appealing. I wore it in my bikram yoga class, and after 90min of sweating the cool racerback in bruisedberry color bleeds all over my bra and towel mat. I think lululemon should test theyre highly pigmented colored clothing before selling it out, its so frustrating to spend $42 on a tanktop and now my towel mat is stained.

I love them but Bruised Berry bled all over
I love CRBs don't get me wrong and I own PLENTY.
This review is not for the older CRBs but the new batch.
Especially the Bruised Berry, which is my favorite Lulu color and I patiently waited for the color to make a comeback. (I don't like the new heathered versions).
Well, not only is this CRB way more thin and flimsy than my other CRBs the color bled onto my white gym towel when I wore it for the first time. It bled all over my bra too, which thankfully I was able to remove.
Returning. So sad. Such a good color. I miss the nice thicker CRBs.

very dissapointed in service and quality
I ordered this item in the angel blue color online. first- it was already on sale on the website for 29.00 before I even received the item in the mail. When I asked to be granted an adjustment I was told i could mail the item back for a refund. Which was not what I wanted. I figured I like the color so I kept it. The first time I wore it, which was about a day ago - i notice a small hole in the chest. For the price and the quality that i expect from lulu and the amount of money i spend I would expect better quality on an item that I had not even worn. When I brought it into the store I was told theres nothing they could do. Not to mention that when I ordered the tech mesh tights in january and woke up at 7 am to order them my order was unfulfilled and I was told it was sold out and there was nothing they could do. I had to complain to even get a gift card. very disappointed.

love this top just not the black/white stripe
i love this top - i own lots of lulu shirts but i was not pleased with my color choice. i only wore/washed one time and the white is now dingy to where the shirt doesn't even look cute anymore. it no longer looks white - disappointed in the quality of the color but love the fit and style. i wear a size 6, 32DD and the shirt fits perfect.
