I bought every color!
This is my go to tank, and I adore them! I like my tanks a little more flowy, and these are fabulous. The material is soft, and thicker than the yogi racerback, which I also love. They fit true to size.

Love! So happy to see these back!
I bought 4 of these tanks last year over the course of a few months, size 2. They wash great and the fabric feels terrific. From this new batch, I ordered the grey in size 2. Too small. The fit seems a little bit snugger than last year. Re-ordered in a size 4 both the light grey and white. The grey fits well and I will keep. The white I returned as the material is very thin and see-thru. Even a nude bra showed completely underneath. (this is the reason I deducted one star)
FYI-I am 5'2", 106#, wear a size 4 in the CRB. I like this style a little looser than the CRB so went with 4.

I was just looking at my old fave MRB from about 3 years ago thinking I should have bought several at the time as it probably my FAVORITE loose tank of all time. Nice material, great cut for a slim, non busty build and holds up well. Looser than CRB and not too wide in neck or arms.
Now having said this I'll check out the newer version and am hoping as it other classics it isn't poorly made/material as noted by some in the reviews. Fingers crossed!

I really like this top, I know the CRB is the Lulu staple, but for me it doesn't fit right, its tight in the chest and baggy at the hips and seams too long, this one fits great, while it does seem longish, it fits nicely and is A great layer under other tops, for reference I am 5'4" 120 pounds and the size 4 is perfect, i would buy more of these in more colors.

Love this tank
I bought one of these tanks a few years ago and it is absolutely my favourite shirt (wore it until it got a few small holes and now it's my favourite bed shirt). I was so excited to see it again this year and ordered the striped angel wing. Fit is loose and comfy but still body-skimming and flattering, fabric is super soft and thin. If this came in more colours and was sold year-round I would probably own a dozen. I recommend sizing down if you're unsure.

I love this tank and wish I had found them sooner. I got the angel wing stripe in store from a return. I sized up to a 6 because I like the looser fit with the lighter fabric. It's gorgeous and I've washed and worn it multiple times. I always wash my lulus in a separate load with normal cold cycle. I just hang them all on a rack to dry. Make more colors please!!! And re-release the gray ones. I hesitated and they were gone.

Sad & Disappointed
First bad review. Love my lulu for years. Purchased the plum, wore it once, washed it on delicate and hung dry. The seams around the arms no longer laid flat. Not sure if it's shrinkage on the top. It looks warped.

Favorite tank...but be careful of plum sizing
I adore this tank...lived in it years ago. The quality of material on this version reminds me of the first round of modern racerbacks several years ago that were vitasea. Subsequently they came out with a 'cotton' version that I didn't like as much.
On this version, haven't washed yet but can tell it needs a gentle cycle, to be kept away from anything that's not a delicate and AIR DRIED. It's my opinion that everything lululemon except for french terry should be air dried.
Sizing and fit on this seems to be exactly what it was in years past BUT the plum is definitely smaller than all the other colours i got (got navy and white). I'd almost say it's an entire size smaller or half a size smaller. I'm 5'2", 122 lbs and got a 4. Fits snug and looks pretty, but the plum is just a hair too small.

Super soft, great for casual wear
I love the casual look of this tank. I love the racerback style and I can wear it in place of a CRB's for everyday/casual wear. I am usually a 10/12 in CRB's and the 10 fits great in this style. The material is super soft, a little thin though, so I layer another tank underneath. The angel wing feels much softer and thinner than the black or grey I tried on, but I love it! I'll save my CRB's for the gym and wear these to work/for casual use. I do hope they hold up in the wash-I will be sad if they shrink up.

I bought this tank because of the inkwell/green stripe. Not sure about the material as it felt thinner and more delicate than that of the CRB. I do like that the fit is looser and light - perfect for casual wear. I find this to be a size down item for me. I usually wear an 8 in CRB or Swifty tanks (a 10 for most other tanks with shelf bras) and the 8 in this was roomy, actually too roomy. I got it in a 6 and the fit was better for my 5'4" height. I hope it will not shrink like one of the previous review because I really like the color combo! Will buy more if there are more dark color combo!
