Rated 5 out of 5 by cfbrunette ABSOLUTE FAVORITE
The CRB is my favorite tank. I wear them for running, crossfit, or just hanging out. They are perfect for everything. I love the cut of the shirt and the material. They absorb sweat very quickly. For reference, I am 5'4" 145lbs, 34D/DD. I wear a size 6 in these. I wear a 6 in run inspires and wunder unders. You can't go wrong with this tank.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shamelon22 Used to Love it
I have several of the CRB tanks and have always loved the long length. I purchased a new one yesterday at my local store and was disappointed in the changes made to this version of the tank. The material is different than it has been historically, thinner and the stitching has already begun to come undone after one wear. The cut is different as well, this one is cut much lower than my other CRB tanks, and left me constantly pulling it up in spin class. Overall was extremely disappointed to see the changes in this item that had previously been the tank I bought every time.

I've bough some of these tank tops a while back and followed the washing intructions. However, the two tops have managed to start pilling and I am stuck with tank tops that I can't even wear to the gym. Very disappointed.

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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by KBK06 Love the look, not the quality...
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.
