Rollin' With My Om'ies Tank
Not for the tall
This is a super-cute top. It doesn't gap in front as much as I feared it would, I found the material to be stretchy and comfy, and it would have made a great layering piece. In terms of torso fit, it felt TTS to me. Alas, I'm 5'10", and it ended well above my navel, which turned it into close to a crop top for me. Even as a layering piece, it sat so high up that it emphasized my hips (no thanks) and looked like I was wearing something a few sizes too small. If you're short or are taller but have a short torso (or don't mind the crop-top look, which I do), this piece might work great for you, but I had to send it back.

Went in to buy shorts and found this little number. I'm 5'6", 145lbs, fit, generally a 6 in lulu tanks, and an 8 in bras and any top with sleeves as I do have a wider back and ribcage. This one I did find the 6 was too tight in the back for my liking, so I went with the 8 and I have no complaints about having too much fabric in the front. I love the bright colours and the shape and fit is super flattering. Definitely something you can wear anywhere! And, they had just marked the price down in the store!

I love this top as it can be worn as an everyday top and even dressed up. The top fits a bit snug and I needed to go up a size to get the loose fit I wanted from it. Overall, it's a great to-and-from piece for anyone's wardrobe!

Wanted to love it but...
I was so excited as soon as I saw this top come out and thought it was definitely one of lulus best top ever...definitely very flattering. Loved the look so much I bought a black and aquamarine. I held onto it for 2 weeks debating whether or not to keep because I found the fabric a bit stiff and not very stretchable so sadly I returned them both. It would have been perfect if it was made in vitesea or organic cotton. Don't get me wrong I love this type of fabric on shorts but just didn't work out for me on a top.

Odd fit for me
I have a short torso so I thought this would be perfect based on the previous reviews. Not at all. I found the back very short and the front very loose. I tried fiddling with it, hoping it could be adjusted to look okay, but no cigar. The feel is amazing - but the fit had me sending it back. :(
For reference: 5'4", 130lbs, regular LLL tank size 8.

I got this in aquamarine and it's light, yet durable. It's also very versatile--both for the studio and for going out. For reference, I am 5'5, 123 pounds and it fit just right, not too loose and not too tight.

Perfect little cover-up
Love this top!! Finally a top that works for us more vertically-challenged people (5'2")! A lot of the LuLu tops that are on the looser side tend to hang too far down on my hips - even to my crotch. NOT a flattering look when you have muscular legs. This one sits at my hip bones and is so versatile, and is light and pretty, perfect for an everyday dressy top. I bought it to wear with some fancy shorts and capris but already wore it to the gym over my Power Y on a really hot day and had running around afterwards. I received so many compliments. I can see how those on the taller side will find this too short.
I too was concerned about the peek-a-boo style but I too found that it stayed put. Fabric tape may be a good idea however, on a windy day if you are wearing a regular bra underneath. If you are wearing a LuLu bra or tank, no worries there!
LuLu makes pants in Regular and Tall sizes, perhaps it's time to utilize this practice in some of their tops. I have had to turn down so many looser-fitting tops as they were too long, finally one that is a perfect length. Make more colours PLEASE Lulu!!

Swank gym-to-date wear!
Me: 5'3", 128lbs, 32ddd (I know...) I have a super hard time wearing most Lululemon tanks unless they are without a shelfbra built in (using my own sports bra). I know LLL has been toying with several upgrades/styles in larger cup size bras, but still no cigar. Anyway, I'm always anxious to try their new styles that allow for use of one's own bra AND that helps to conceal a larger chest (small body, LLL! Lots of us out here).
This tank is AWESOME! My fear of the front criss-cross design becoming some sort of peek show was quickly eliminated, as it actually stayed put! No flapping/gaping opening AND no need for some contortion bra with changing straps as this tank easily covered my standard straps. Heck...no need for fashion tape or the ol' stand-by safety pin to secure the fabric. The arm holes are superb and do NOT hang too low, showing the world what color sport bra I'm NOT wearing. Seriously, this "blouse" is the perfect go-to on a day when I want to look fab, to-from or simply around town. I wore it with some bulky jewelry and a pencil skirt last night and received tons of compliments on it too. Home run!
I am on the shorter side, so I can see how someone with a fab, tall body, or longer torso might consider this a tad short. However, if their chest were smaller in cup size, that would gain them more fabric that I use up.
Ordering a second color now!

Perfect for dress up or down, gym or party
I LOVE this top, it is so pretty and can be dressed for dinning out, or put on after sweat. So airy and light, perfect piece for summer. Length is also perfect on me although I'm not tall (5'2"). Size is true, but if you are between sizes, go for the bigger size, because the style meant to fit on looser side. The only thing is, I can't wait to buy more colors, something like light lavender or cream, I think that will be awesome.

Incredible versatile top!
This might very well be my best lulu purchase ever. Love the swift ultra fabric, and despite the "athletic" fabric, it drapes beautifully and is suitable for a night on the town! I can see this as a Vince or Theory $200+ piece. Viewing it online I completely disregarded it, but decided to try it out in store and I'm glad I did! The black is awesome with the bring back the track pant in the same fabric with a pair of heeled sandals- my husband looked at me and said "wow you look nice; where are you off to?" Uh, to the gym? Ha! Keep 'em guessing! I'm 33/26/34 5'4" 118 and wear a 32dd in the tata tamer (32e in booby bracer,) generally a 4 or 6 in lulu tops, and the 4 is just perfect! Purchased the black in store and just ordered the aquamarine online.
