Refresh Racer Tank
I like this much better than the CRB. Looking at the pics online, I thought that the wider back might look kinda frumpy, but in person the thinner straps on the front counterbalance the look. Cute. Also like the slimmer fit and curved hemline. I have been anxiously awaiting the return of bordeaux drama color this fall, and it did not disappoint. Really beautiful and comfortable too! I was looking for a nice snug fit, so I got my usual size 6 and it's perfect.

i was a skeptic
I have a lot of the cool racerbacks. I was skeptical to try this new gal on the block, but she's really great! The fit rivals the CRB! The straps are a bit thinner so I think the power y bra looks far better and less bulky than the energy bra underneath. Also note that I normally wear a 4 CRB and took a 6 in this one. I didn't get a 4 to compare, but I think it would be too tight. For reference, I'm 5'3", 118#, and A cup. I got the bordeaux drama to try but hope that more colors are in the future!

Maybe better than the CRB
Like other reviewers, I also heard the rumor that this top would be replacing the CRB so I figured I had to try it. I ordered it in an 8 (I usually wear a 6 in lululemon). The top fits great! It is a nice change from the CRB. Love having a top without a built in bra so I can pick which bra I want to wear. I thought the wider back might be too wide, but it is perfect- just covers the straps of the energy bra. The Boudreaux color is gorgeous too!!! Can't wait for more colors.

Worthy alternative to CRB
Rumors started circulating that this would be the tank to replace the classic CRB, so I got curious and decided to see if I could adapt. Reviews also said to size up, so the best way for me was to see if my local store had it, and yay they finally did- it seemed the first run was only limited to a few stores, and they weren't one of those originally. The new berry stripe looked so good in picture, that that was the print I wanted. I tried it on, and it is TTS, and fits about as good as the CRB, but with a more rounded hem, which hugs our curves better. Also, the wider back isn't so wide as to be distracting. The fabric feels silky, too. Overall, if this is what CRB will give way to, I wouldn't mind. It's a great new staple! Now for more colors and fun prints :)

BETTER THAN CRB!
I'm sure I'll be in the minority here, but I actually prefer this tank to the cool racerback. I like the fit and material better. I'm 5'4" and the crb is kinda long on me and I don't like the inconsistency with the material and feel. For me, this tank fits perfect and I love it. Just ordered another one.

Great alternative to CRB!
This top is a nice alternative to the CRB and fits just perfect. I usually get a 6 in the CRB, and got a 6 in this top as well. Just a perfect versatile top for all workouts. Lulu, please keep this top around and make more colors!!!

Love this new tank even more then the crb! Very flattering! I am 5'9 140 lbs, I usually wear 6 in crb. I sized up on this tank after reading the reviews. The gray size 8 fit perfect but the multi color tank in size 8 was too big! More colors please!!!!

Narrow but long top
I love the CRB tank and ordered this one size larger than I take in a CRB based on the reviews that it was narrow/tight through the body. Even one size up it was too tight through the middle for me and the length was way too long for my average frame (5'6"). Also the straps were really long on me. The material feels great and I liked the curved hem for something different than a CRB, but this one just didn't work for me. If you are tall with a long torso and thin, this would be great for you. I'm average hourglass size 8 and it didn't work at all for my figure.

Fits better than the Cool Racer Back
I am 5'7, 127lbs, i have a very narrow waist, my boobs are 32D. I am always a size 4 in all Lulu stuff. I never liked the fit of the CRB's on me. It always seemed to be too loose around the smallest part or my waist and too tight on my boobs. So, this refresh racer tank is amazing it fits tight all over and not too tight on my boobs. It shows a small boob crack which i find sexy in just the right way. I ilke it way better than the CRB. And the straps are thiner, looks a bit sexier. The girl at the store told me that its made in the same material as the CRB. I swear i had a hard time believing her, the material of the refresh racer back seems more soft and elastic for some reason. So for girls that dont like it to be too tight around their waist i would say size up and for the girls that want it to be tight and sexy, ull be in love with ur usual size :) And last but not least, the bottom of the refresh racer back is not cut straight (if you check well in the pictures) its cut a bit rounder on the front and back and shorter on the sides. But the girl at the store said that if i decide to get it hemmed they will just cut it straight. I actually like that different cut, its more flatering on the hips and butt ;) Anyways love love love it

Love the cut of this tank
I own a ton of CRB's for the obvious reason that I love them!!! This however should also become a LLL staple tank because the cut of this tank adds a lot more sexy to it and is very flattering.
I can go between a 4 and a 6 in CRB's and swiftly tech racer back tanks, I tried the refresher racer tank in a 4 and it fits but definitely a little on the snugger side (compared to my 4's in the CRB) therefore I think I may try one size up as another reviewer suggested.
Overall I would love to see this in more colors and especially cool patterns that LLL comes out with. This tank is definitely a keeper!
