Great tank, until you wash it
This tank is wonderful...until you wash it. And I know how to wash my lulu. I washed it in cold, delicate/hand wash cycle, hang dry, no fabric softener or bleach, just good old gentle detergent. I pulled it out of my washing machine, and I tell something was off before I laid it in my drying rack. The center back seam now veers 6-8 inches to the left, the left side seam veers about the same to the right in front if the torso, and the right side seam hangs straight. So, those two slits that used to be at the hip, now the left one lies almost at the belly button and the right hangs about 6 inches lower by my bum. I will be taking this back to my store, as well as returning the others I haven't worn yet, and they better not give me any for it, like they did when I took back a pair of pants that would not stay up on me at all (turns out they were mismarked, but the Ed's told me it was my fault for buying the wrong size...and I have probably 100 pair of lulu bottoms....I had to do the detective work and prove their was something wrong with them...then the pair of pants I wore the next day dyed my skin blue for an entire week, no joke). I'm sad because this tank would have been perfect for summer. I don't know enough about sewing to know why this happened, but sad that it is obviously a waste. I saw that this happened to another reviewer. Mine was the light gray one. I'm curious if hers was too.

Great! A workout tank that should not be washed :(
This tank was great the first (and only) day I wore it. I took a spinning class in it. Naturally, I sweat while spinning. That shouldn't be a problem because this is a top intended for activity, so you can just wash it and all will be good again, right? Wrong.
I washed this in cold water on the Hand Wash/light spin cycle and allowed it to air dry. It looks like a used Kleenex! The neck hem is now wrinkled and misshaped. The fabric suddenly looks like a t shirt I have owned no less than 15 years. This, mind you, was after 1 light wash and air dry. Another Lululemon purchase that can't stand up to minimal wash and wear. Great. I'll now have to keep wearing this brand new top that looks like I've been wearing it daily for months.
All this can be yours for the ridiculous price of $48.00. Don't do it. Save your money for something that is actually going to do it's job as a tank top intended for use during physical activity.
Really disappointed. I will never buy another "Vitasea" item again. It's code for "NOT WORTH $5.00."

love this top, but 1 wash and its all wrong
I loved everything about this top when I saw it and tried it on at the store. The fit and design is great. I just wore it to my Pilates class and it was perfect for that. Unfortunately, after one wash the tank is completely unwearable. The tank is completely skewed and twisted. The CB seam is not straight anymore. The hem is twisted too just like the picture posted previously. I am very disappointed about this. Please work on the skew/twist issue with the fabric mill better. It clearly should have not passed testing. I know this because I work in the garment industry and this is not passable whatsoever.

I loved it when I saw this on the website and ran to the store and tried it on...loved it even more and bought it. Wore it for a workout that night, and washed it........ Like some others are saying, the structure of the garment just went out the door. The hemming got twisted so badly. I have a few tanks that I got 3 for $5 that I've had for 4 years and this brandnew tank I paid $48 for is in worse shape.
Very disappointed with the quality.
BTW, I washed it in cold water and hang to dry - no dryer.
After paying so much money, I would expect far better quality...at least better than those I only spent a couple of bucks. Still love the design though - covers my butt, it's nice and light, and flowy.

Pilling and lost shape
I was so excited about this tank and wasn't disappointed when I received this in the mail. Received a ton of compliments and even a friend who wanted me to order one for her after seeing it on. I washed this shirt, with lulu only, and it has pilling everywhere!!!!
I'm so disappointed,looks like an old tank that has been worn everyday for 5 years :( My hems have also lost shape

love this tank, but...
i really love this tank, its' loose fit and cute cut in back. i tried it on in store and loved it so much i bought the gray and the black. i then ordered another gray and another black a few days later online! fast forward a week later, i have washed the two tanks i purchased in store and the strangest thing......the fabric on the bottom hem kind of bunches up and does not dry flat like the way i purchased it. i didn't expect this and it is a little off-putting since this has never happened to any of my other tanks. granted, this tank fabric is vitasea and not luon like my CRBs. still, i am NOT trying to iron out the hems of my workout tanks. so now, i am on the fence about returning the two tanks that are on their way here....that's my ONLY gripe about this tank. if you take a look at the pic posted by the previous reviewer "KEVO" that is a great photo of what happens to the bottom hem after washing. great tank, great style, great comfy feeling fabric, but turned off by the after effects of laundering on the hem line. :( hence, 3 stars.

The material of this tank is so soft and comfy. Love the length and the little slits in the front. I usually wear a tank under a t-shirt or sweatshirt and this hangs below beautifully. I prefer loose fitting garments with a layered look and this fits the bill perfectly. This is my favourite LL tank. I have worn it everyday since I got it. Washes well so far with no pilling. I ordered my normal LL tank size 6 and the fit is TTS.

Only 1 flaw
I was so excited about this tank as i love long tunic tanks. I wore this only once and washed with all my other lulu clothes per care instructions. The hem line on the bottom and the neck line both ended up rippling/wrinkling up. It is driving me nuts. It looks like maybe the sewing was not right. Disappointing to say the least!

Nice, but sizing way off
The material of this tank is lovely. Same with the design. Unfortunately, it is HUGE! I am size 2, I would have needed to go down two size at least in this tank. It was by far the least flattering item I've tried on from lululemon, simply because it was shapeless on me. Hopefully in the future lululemon can be more consistent in sizing, as I would have bought several of this item if it fit.
