woven for strength and no-bulk performance, this four-way stretch fabric moves with us and stays out of our way
why we made this
This singlet helps us stay cool when we're racing our shadows. We designed it with lightweight, sweat-wicking fabric and added laser cut ventilation to help us let off some steam. The loose fit layers easily over our favourite bra so we're ready to hit the road running.

split side seams give you options: tuck it in or wear it out to cool down
Breezy and Unique
This is one of those items that you will only find at Lulu--completely unique and brand specific that you are happy to pay the extra bucks to get. It's cut to give some space between the item and the body for maximum air flow and the look is really different--flattering to a variety of body types. The swift fabric is not great at wicking, but the shirt isn't cut to touch your body anywhere anyway. I think it looks best with capris, but works with shorts as well. I bought the angel blue, which is a Tiffany blue type color--gorgeous. I am a petite 5' 2" 115lbs 34B and the 6 was the right fit--a bit loose all around. It fits looser or tighter depending on the sports bra I wear with it.

I love this fabric because it does cling or bind. I find tight tops too constricting and hot and this singlet is super lightweight and breezy; air can flow on my skin.
I wear a size 8 but bought a 10 in this top for the extra length and for a deeper V in the front.
I wear this top as a base layer under a thin long sleeved top such as the Daily Practice Long Sleeve.
The Angel Blue is a pretty aqua color.

Great for running on hot days
I wore this on a long run today. The flowy material was great for the sunny, shadeless trail I ran. Some have complained about water/sweat stains showing, but I spill water on myself pretty often, this never bothers me and the moisture dries REALLY quickly.
The material is light and thin but it doesn't stretch. I have a small bust, so the non-stretchiness of the tank doesn't bother me. I'm pretty short, so if I wore the tank with the Speed Shorts (or any shorter shorts), the tank would cover them and give that I'm-not-wearing-bottoms look (not a fan of!) I wear a 4 in the Swiftly running tops and I got a 4 in this tank (although, I think I can also wear a 2 in this.)
I LOVE the feel of the lightness of the material, I'm thinking about buying a second.

Pretty tank. Fits well and drapes nicely. I normally wear a 4 in all Lulu tops and for reference, I'm a 32b, 125lbs, 5'8. Just be warned, this top is quite a bit brighter than the picture. Like, 80's dayglo bright. May try to exchage or return it to the store for the Bali or Black.

Awkward fit for me
Love the detailing in this tank. The front was snug through the chest. I am a true size 10 in tops, and 8 in bottoms. I have found over the last 6 months or so that the tops seem to be smaller, no I'm not gaining weight, I'm actually losing lately. I so wanted this top to be for me, I ordered 2 - the bali and the black. If you have any hips at all it may appear tight. Although the back on me was flattering I wish the front was as nice. I took them back yesterday to my local store hoping they had a larger size. They hadn't seen it yet and were excited to re-sell. It is very nice, just not for me :(

Better for petite chests
I ordered this top in bali breeze, color is beautiful, cut-outs are pretty and unique and the back is super cute. However, I ordered a 4 which I usually wear in the CRB it looked great from the front but the back pulled a little snug under my shoulder blades therefore, you don't get the nice flow with the pleats in the back. I went to the store to try the 6, it flowed well in the back but looked much too big from the front. I think the 4 would have worked if I was smaller chested (34C-32D). It would look fabulous on someone smaller chested. For reference I am 5'3, 110lbs, athletic build. Super bummed, I loved the top it just did not work for my body type.

don't love the fabric
i had high hopes for this tank. i agree with previous reviews that it is a little snug in the bust area. however, it is flowy in other places. i finally was able to wear it for a run today. i didn't have any problems with sweat showing (and it was warm outside). however, i don't love the fabric. i prefer the fabrics that breathe a little better. this tank doesn't have a lot of give and isn't as light as cool as other Lululemon running tanks.
i wish that Lulu had the same policy as others, where you can try out your gear and return if you don't love it. oh well. lesson learned. i'll turn to my other tanks for runs on warm days.

Ready for Spring/Summer
I am an avid Swift Ultra fan. (as some reviewers mentioned, it can show sweat. This doesn't bother me because that happens when you work out :P BUT it does dry supercrazyultra fast!)
I'm also a huge fan of lazer cut outs.
This top is fantastic!
I'm 5'8 140lb, 30D for reference.
It's a great length for my 5'8 frame and sooo flowy. I am often between a 4-6, and went with the 6. I like the flowy-ness and I think that's the point of this one.
My first day in this tank, I did a cardio class, BodyPump, yoga, and a quick jog. I stayed cool and dry the entire 4 hour gym session and wasn't ready to take it off!
The Bali Breeze is a gorgeous color, the details are stunning, and the back is so sassy. It's a top I can sweat through at the gym (instructing or participating), throw on a pair of shorts and hit the beach, or put on a pair of skinnies and flats and meet the girls for a drink.
THANK you, Lulu! I will certainly be stocking up on this one.

If you loved the featherweight singlet you will Love this! I have 3 featherweights so...But this one is a bit prettier. You can even wear this as a cute top. Has a slight stretch to it and looks pretty on. I wear a 2 and the boob area is slight bit tight so if you are a bigger bust you may want to size up. This is a great tank!!
