Refresh Racer Tank
Fits like CRB
I am Sz 6 in CRB and the fit is similar. Prefer the curved hem to CRB's longer straight hem.

Nice but Fits Small
This is a great top but it is the first tank that I've ever bought from Lulu (and I have dozens) that wasn't a size 4. I sized up to a 6 because it felt pretty tight in the dressing room, especially through the stomach area (and I have a flat tummy). For reference I am a slim build. I'm 5'2 and weigh 115lbs. Otherwise it is a great top!

Get this tank top!
I purchased this at my local store on a whim in "blossom stripe bumble berry ghost" because it was on sale and I have the matching pants. I wear a size 6 in the pants, and this was the first tank I have ever purchased it. From what I've gathered in the fitting room, I think I am a 6 in most tops as well, but I was able to take a 4 in this and still feel comfortable. I typically avoid skin tight tank tops but this one is surprisingly flattering and makes me feel very confident. The fabric is so light weight and breathable but wicks sweat away at the same time so I am never feeling gross and covered in soaking wet fabric. I am not a big runner, but I have recently taken up jogging for 20-30 minutes while I work out. The tank top shifts a little at first, but once I start to sweat a little it stays perfectly in place and I never have to adjust it - I love it! I plan to buy more the next chance I get and I can genuinely say that it's worth the price.

The only tank I wear now
I love this tank top so much that I now own four. I wear the black one so much that I'm thinking of buying two more just in black so that I always have one to wear, and don't wear them out. I also wear it as a basic layering piece. Basically, I've been living in these tank tops.
The shorter length is perfect. I always found the CRBs too long to look good on me, since I have a broad ribcage. The curved hem is very flattering. The neckline is a perfect dip: not too revealing to teach yoga in. The wider back allows me to wear my favorite underwire racerback bra underneath. The snug-but-not-constricting fit is also nice.
Please make it in every color of the rainbow!

Might be a new fav........
Bought the osaka stripe heathered black grape/going grape. Am in love. This tank is perfect for us girls that find the crbs to be almost like dresses on us. Curved hem is super flattering. I'm in between sizes right now, 6/8, and went with the 8. Fit was perfect.

I love this tank more than the CRB. I got mine in black and it is so versatile, I would wear it every single day if I could! Definitely will need to invest in more of these.

It was a gift :-(
I received this tank as a gift and I loved it because of the color/pattern! (It's the grape/heather end striped one) it looks awesome! i removed & threw away the tag before trying it on and by the time I had tried it on, the tag had already been thrown away. The fit was way too tight - I usually wear a 4, but this is a 6 and it's still too tight. It fits really weird, too. The straps are odd. I thought it would look awesome because of the way it dips in the front & back.
I shop LLL all the time & never have issues, but I'm so sad I no longer have the tag because I would definitely return it...

I really like this tank. I love the crb but sadly it seems we hardly ever get a new color. I think this could be a new favorite. I took my usual size ( same as crb size). What I liked were the curved hem, the length and how soft the fabric is. The crbs are sooo long (good for covering your "assets" with all of the peek a boo pants of the last couple years) but sometimes to long and they can't get a little bunchy around the middle. The lighter luon is pretty thin but in the stripe pattern it works and is not sheer. I'd love to get another but these colors are killing me.

Cute top but runs small
I tried the Osaka Stripe on while browsing @ LLL Calabasas. So much smaller than my regular size 2. I was literally gasping in the dressing room.
They didn't have other colors available in my size to try on. I passed. If you like this top, it's completely appropriate to size up one whole size. The style/design and material are great. Get picky with the colors and sizing.

The tank of my dreams
I got this tank in the toothpaste heathered slate and the thin black and white stripe, and it is exactly what I was looking for. I'm 5'3", 130 lbs and I find many of the lulu tanks too long for my short torso. This one was the perfect length. I ordered my regular size 6 and found it was tight but not in any way restrictive. It cuts low enough to be flattering but I didn't worry about popping out during yoga. I've worn it during yoga with lots of inversions and even head stands with no tummy flashing. The straps are thinner but wide enough to cover a sports bra. I will wear this for running as well, but the material is thicker than I would want for running in hot weather.
