Peace Of Mind Tank
The design of this top is beautiful, airy, and flowy. The material, when you first buy it, is creamy; it is beautiful to the touch. However, as you wear this shirt, it begins to wrinkle, which isn't a problem if the wrinkles would eventually go away with the body heat. However, these folds become permanent creases in the garment. Washing this top is a bad idea. I ran my Peace of Mind tank through the washing machine, hanging to dry, and the creamy texture was washed out as well. The texture of this tank is a great idea, initially, but it doesn't last beyond the first wash or wear. This tank, while beautiful, is not worth the retail price. Sorry Lulu :(

Uncomfy when wet
Great tank - if you hang it to dry and uncrumple the sleeves it doesn't wrinkle. I have the black one. The open back is nice and cool and looks great with an Energy bra underneath. My only complaint is that if you get this tank sweaty (e.g., hot yoga, running) it's really uncomfortable as the fabric gets heavy and cold when wet. I only use it for moderate yoga classes as I cannot stand to have it on when it's sweaty - not moisture wicking at all.

I love this tank. I am not sure I agree with some of the negative reviews. As with silk or linen there is always a lot of wrinkling. I actually find silk or linen wrinkles worse than this tencel tank. For me I find it very similar to rayon and washes the same. I did not find it stiff after it was washed and wet. It felt like rayon does when wet and once dry it was soft. I really was not interested in this tank for some time and I am not sure why. i now wish I had gotten the pink as well. Works great with all the cropped sweaters coming out this season and the wrinkles are not obvious. i sized down and find the cut and fit perfect. Very cool and airy as well.

Beautiful Wrinkled Mess
I saw this in the store and thought it was so pretty! I bought it to take on a trip--but that would never work. It wrinkles so easily. It says not to iron, but I tried on the lowest heat setting and it didn't help at all. So I tried washing it. I hand washed it and then hung it up to dry. I used my hands to try and smooth all the wrinkles out. That actually worked. But within about 10 minutes of wearing it gets wrinkled all over again. It's such a bummer because it is so pretty. Also I have worn it hiking and to barre class and it kept me cool and looked cute--minus the wrinkles. Oh well.

Read reviews, before purchasing
I recently purchased this tank top at an outlet store. I noticed that it was final sale, so i took the tags off. Went home and threw it in the wash alone. I took it out and hung it to dry. It is not even the same shirt. Completly wrinkled and stiff. Its upsetting because you pay good money, for high quality products. I love lululemon, but very unsatisfied with this product.

High maintenance tank!
I agree with the other reviews. After washing, this tank becomes a lot of work to wear. It comes out of the washing machine very stiff and wrinkled, even when I remove it immediately. Even though the instructions say not to iron, I have no other choice, so I iron it so it becomes wearable. I love the cut and fit of this tank, but the fabric is not up to lulu standards.

Washing ruins it
I love the top when I tried it on so I ended up buying 2 colors. I have only wore the black one. I washed in cold on gentle with my other lulus. When I was unloading the washer I took this out and couldn't for the life of me figure out what I was holding. It was hard as a rock. I then realized it was this top that previously felt super silky! I hung it to dry.... It's full of wrinkles, not as soft and it shrunk!!! I still have the white nwt which I'll never wear now. I've never had anything totally ruin just by getting wet.

This material is terrible. The site claims you can wash it gently (or hand wash), but when you do, it becomes hard. You cannot dry it, but you also shouldn't iron it. The material looks terrible - soooo wrinkled. This is my first lululemon purchase, and honestly, it's not up to the type yet. I am going to try another shirt, but definitely not of this material.
To give it a bit of credit - the style was cute.

Bad Choice of Material
I loved this tank on the hanger, sooo pretty. I bought the pink and thought this would be a cute "going out" shirt too. Wrong. It looks like crud after 10 minutes of wearing it. Its pretty much a 52 dollar hang around the house shirt. If I left the house in this people would think I was homeless. ( bit of an exaggeration there!) The pic is after I have worn this top for 10 minutes in my house.

OK if you like wrinkles
This top is so silky when you purchase it. After you wash it, the wrinkles appear. I hung it to dry after washing, the bottom hem was all messed up, and the wrinkles were horrible. I tried steaming it, but the wrinkles are still there and the silkily feel is gone.
