Run: First Base Tank
I am literally in love with this top- if I weren't already married it would be a serious contender! Perfect material and seams. I love that it doesn't have the more traditional skinnier racer back so it hides a sports bra completely. No chaffing.
I can't think of any cons except that I want one in literally every color! And to really convince you, because I know you're still wondering, I have had one of these from the start of pregnancy to the end and it STILL fits! I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it. It's made out some kind of fabric blend fairy dust!!

This is a fantastic, comfortable tank that performs as expected. I have used it for running, gym, yoga and it is perfect for all. The fabric is so soft and the fit is just right. I am a size 4, 120# 5'7" 34A. This is so comfy that I will sometimes put it on hours before my workout just to spend some extra time in it. I bought the angel wing stripe and it looks great. I would definitely purchase this in more colours if LLL came out with more. Worth the money! It has been washed several times and is holding up well.

Love this tank!
Bought this because it was in the WMTM section and wanted a run tank that would translate to sporty casual. Am so happy with the purchase. I'm between 6 and 8 in tops (5'9" 150 lbs) and went with the 8. It's a gem! Fabric is soft, fit is flattering (more so for me than CRB as another reviewer noted). I think this is a real value!

Love this top!
I love this top more than CRB - or maybe any other lulu tanks that I own. The fabric is so soft and fit is flattering. Not too wild/gym-attire-looking like CRB but still is racer back with a hint of nobleness. I may agree with some people though, indicating that this top could choose the body type. I am 5'6", 104lbs, and bra size A with wide shoulders as a reference. Usually wear 4 for tops, 2/4 for bottoms.
Got it on WMTM and so glad to place the order. And I am ordering another color!

Soft and Light
I was pleasantly surprised by this tank-- I bought it sight unseen here on the WMTM page so it was a risk, but one that paid off! I was delighted to find it is super light and soft, has a perfect length, and the cut in the back covers up just about any type of sports bra. I think it will be my favorite run tank for the super hot summers here in Phoenix, and I think I might buy it in all the other colors too! Good job on this one, lulu! Keep 'em coming.

OK I'm 5'9", 137 pounds, 34B and 56 years old. I'm only mentioning my age as this might have something to do with how disappointed I am with this tank. I think I have at least one tank of every tank that Lulu has made and this is by far my least favorite, now I'm STUCK since I purchased it on sale : (. The best and the worst is the fabric, rulu light? It clings and sticks to my body in ways that make me cringe. Yes, I will admit my body isn't as tight as it once was but you better not have a bra bulge or a tiny bump at the top of your tights that you don't want the world to see. It sticks to my body like saran wrap and doesn't move. I look forward to putting on my Lululemon workout wear as it makes me feel good which is the reason I love it so but this one made me feel sad.

GREAT fabric, great tank but....
I love this top, but (big sigh here) I have the SAME problems with it that I have with lots of Lululemon tops anymore- and that is that the tops seem to NOT be made to accommodate "fit" women. AKA women with some muscle tone.
I am a 4 in the CRB, but I even when Isized up to a 6 this is still too tight in the upper back and across my bust. I would consider myself lean and muscular. I'm a size 2-4 in most of Lululemon's attire so I am not a big person, but I am shapely from crossfit and I find that a lot of lululemon's bras and tops don't accommodate shoulders and back width.
I LOVE the fabric of the shirt- it's like butter, and the shape, AND that I can wear my own bra under it... so I REALLY wanted to try to like this- so much so I even tried it on in an 8... and still, no fit. Just looked like a tent.
Until Lululemon makes this to fit women with some muscle tone- I'll have to stick to my CRBS!

Favorite Lulu tank
I love this tank top. The fabric is super soft and I like that the cut of it goes down a little in the back. I have been patiently waiting for it to go back on WMTM because even though I love it - $58 is still too much. I love that the back is wider, so I can wear any of my sports bras with it without showing. I have worn this for spin, hot yoga, and a lot of running. I'd love more colors!!

love the fabric and design, but fit doesn't work
I love this top, but it doesn't fit me. I am a size 4 CRB tanks, but I sized up to a 6 in this and it's still too tight in the upper back. I've got some good muscles (thanks, crossfit!), but nothing crazy. I am also very flat-chested, and this is much too tight around the bust/lats/back. The fabric visibly pulls in the upper back, even in a size up, and then I have plenty of room in the midsection. Hmm.
I really love the soft fabric and the cornflower blue color, and I also like that the hip area isn't fitted so the shirt won't ride up when I run. (I find that shirts that are tight in the hips ride up for me when I run, so I look for looser fits in that area.) I wanted this to work for me, but it just doesn't. Buff girls, beware!

Great basic tank!
I love this tank! I pretty much live in CRBs but decided to get this because I love pretty pink and wanted something a little different. This tank is very soft and I like how it is a little loser in the middle, and not as long as CRBs. I wore this on a short run and have no complaints. I hope it comes out in more colors! For reference, I am 5'3" 108lbs and I bought a size 4, I am a size 2 in CRBs.
