Only complaint-I can't have it in EVERY color!
This is my go to workout/running top. Comfortable and cool. I personally have no issues with it riding up. It dries quick. No issues with snags. And I wear this top at least once a week. I do not dry anything I buy from here. I would highly recommend this top and if you have issues it seems like their customer service is being very receptive to people that have complaints...

Bought it in black/white stripes, almost gray when you look at it from afar. It was on sale so I had to have it. Big mistake. Never buy these in stripes. It's easily snagged and much more noticeable if it's in stripes. I am not sure from where it snagged from, perhaps when I washed it. It's really soft though. I can picture wearing it during a half/full marathon. I just wished that it wasn't so easily snagged.

I recently visited my local LuLu for the first time in a long time and left with two of these tanks. I immediately fell in love with the feel, and after trying it on, the flattering fit. It does seem to snag easily, so keep it away from velcro! However, the snags were minor and not noticeable after washing. I plan to hand wash and line dry until I accumulate enough of these tops for a load to wash on the delicate cycle together! I also wrap them in my capris or yoga towel to prevent them from catching on anything in my gym bag.
So far I've worn them for running and yoga, and it's great for both! The fabric is very breathable, keeps you dry, and stays in place for the most part. The main reason I'm not rating this with 5 stars is because the extreme care that's involved. I'm a working mom, trying to get my workouts in and it's hard enough to balance these commitments and responsibilities. I'd rather not have to concern myself with hand laundering in addition to everything else. The price point is also a little steep, especially when you're on a budget, and only time will tell if it's worth it. For now, I'm pretty satisfied.

I've been shopping around for tanks to run in, and this is by far the softest, most comfortable thing I have found! No pinching or rubbing or chaffing.
I have a long sleeve shirt and a v neck shirt, same fabric. Delicate, but I've been getting lots of wear out of them. Washing in a front load and hanging to dry.
I would give it 5 stars if it was at a better price point. It is almost double other running tanks... but if that's the price to pay for comfort...

This is my first swiftly purchase and I love it.The cadet blue is so pretty. The material does feel delicate so I will have to be careful. I'm usually a 6 or 8 and the 6 looks good in this style. I will definitely be wearing this as a layering item in my wardrobe.

Great wicking, poor fit
I purchased this tank about 6 months ago strictly for running and have been very disappointed with the results. The tank performs well as far as wicking and preventing chafing, however it continually rides up. I've worn this tank top with run speed shorts and the combination of the fabric leads to continual riding up, and bunching at my waist. This is very frustrating when I have to pull the tank top down more than 10 times when only running 5 miles.
I would recommend the cool racerback over this tanktop, it is a slightly heavier knit, but does not ride up!

I have several of these tanks and they are truly the most versatile workout tank I own, and I own a lot. I have never experienced any of the pulling other reviewers have mentioned and I wear them all a couple days a week and wash them just as often. I wear them to yoga, spin, and to run in. They are light as air, cool, and so comfortable. I always have to wear a sports bra with any tank, even if it has a supportive built-in, so I appreciate the freedom of movement these tanks offer without the built-in bra. Plus, it allows me to wear the bra that works best for the sport I am participating in. So many beautiful colors, but they run out of 6's all too soon :(

Not impressed. Received my swiftly in the mail the other day and before even removing from the clear bag it comes in I seen a huge snag, so disappointed. I didn't even try it on, taking it back and won't get a new one. Fail Lulu.

Comfortable but scared to rip it!
Really like the material and how light it is. I bought it loose and when you run it feels great, like you're wearing nothing. Mine got a few tiny strings loose in the wash (I've had it about a month), which now I see is common after reading the reviews. I really like this shirt but would be reluctant to buy more because I am too scared I will rip them after a very short time, so I'd rather spend my money on something more durable.
