Swiftly Tech Racerback
Love this tank. Love how it feels. I want it in every color! Just enough snugness without being too tight and hugging things i don't want hugged!

This is one of my favorite tanks from Lulu and i have it in a bunch of colors. But my pink one is covered in snags and I've barely worn it and followed the washing instructions to a T. I think the material is a little thinner than my darker colored, heathered ones. That might have something to do with it. It's my go to workout tank. The snags are so disappointing.

Love hate relationship
I LOVE swiftly tops, I have several short sleeves and long sleeves, this is my first tank and I have to say I was surprised to find that the fit is tighter and the material is ALOT thinner.. I am not sure I will get much use out of this. I purchased a couple month ago and it has been sitting in my closet with the tags on. I feel like it would snag so easily and is just too thin for my liking

Perfect for Any Activity
I own probably more than a dozen of these tanks and they are what I live in. I layer them under a sweater or hoodie on casual days and wear them whenever I have volleyball or yoga. I personally like to layer them over top of a Cool Racerback (because I like the extra coverage and the added length, also it's fun to mix the colors) but you don't have to do that.
I've found small improvements over the years of owning these tanks - I used to get a strong silverescent smell out of them if I was sweating a lot (kind of smells like pennies) but I haven't noticed that smell in the latest releases.
I feel like the fit can vary slightly depending on color (maybe it's just the way the fabric stretches) but generally, they all wear the same. I do size up in this tank because I like it to be slightly roomy, but it's still body skimming. I find that length is slightly short for my taste (truly falls at the hip with my size-up) but as I said before, it's not an issue because I do layer with this tank, and even if I didn't, it's not so short that it looks awkward.
I haven't had any stretching with this tank - even if it does stretch out slightly when I'm sweaty and gross, it tends to bounce right back. I've washed and worn these tanks hundreds of times over the years and my oldest ones still look just as good as my newest ones.
I just purchased the tie-dye (in both the tank and also the scoop neck tee) and they are so beautiful and flattering!!! Definitely recommend!!

Not for yoga
I loved the color of this tank and the fabric is soft. But I wore it to yoga and it completely stretched out of shape and was hanging off of me when I got home! Armholes stretched and back got longer. I washed it up and it looked a little better, but same happens each time. I don't like it at all, but wear it occasionally anyway because it was so darn expensive!

still a go-to
I love this tank. The lightness of the fabric is wonderful, and the cut of the straps and neckline are just enough coverage without being restrictive.
Pros: The fabric is breathable and soft, with just enough stretch and the perfect thickness for almost any activity. The color choices are great, and the quality is pretty consistent. The flat seams are great, and for me they don't bunch or ride up.
Cons: Yeah, it does snag. I would only suggest wearing this tank for your actual workout, and not for to and from. I wore this with a cross-body Lulu bag once after a run, and it snagged immediately in the shoulder. This is not a deal breaker however, because I brought it to a Lululemon store and they exchanged it, no questions asked.
Overall, a definite YES.

My favourite shirt from lulu
This is my favourite shirt from lulu because it is so light and it doesn't show sweat marks. I wear all of my shirts for running and to crossfit regularly. I previously purchased several of these shirts in different colours and never had a problem with a single one. I have recommended them to several friends and family members and we all love them. The only reason I did not give the shirt a rating of 5 stars was because the last one I bought had a hole in it after only a couple of wears. I am pretty sure it wasn't me and the way I was taking care of it because none of my other shirts have had this problem and I have had some of them for well over a year and wear them sometimes once a week. The hole is tiny but I worry about wearing the shirt again because I am afraid the hole with get bigger. I would recommend this shirt just make sure you look it over well before purchasing.

Bummed!!! Rides up!
I was so excited to purchase a few of these tanks as they came highly recommended.....My usual size in lulu tops is a 4, when I tried these on the educator suggested the 2, and said, if you don't love it, bring it back and we can work with you. Well....both the tanks rode up during a cross fit class and look ridiculous on. They are way to fitted to be doing any type of running/crossfit. Now, I don't know if the store will take these back as they have been worn. I would highly recommend not following the educators advice and going on what size you feel comfortable in, or sizing up!

I have several versions of this tank. My older ones are a T and a long sleeved run swiftly. The newer ones snag; something the older ones did not do. I hand wash and I'm very careful but just wearing a seat belt can cause this to snag. I love the comfort and the variety of colors, but won't purchase again due to the snagging. It's flimsy.

Make more colors please
Love this tank, I have both purple colors, the heathered clear mint which is really fluorescent yellow, the heathered black, which is charcoal gray, heathered atomic red which is salmon, and white. It is the perfect tank because it is super lightweight, not too clingy and keeps you cool! I would love it in more colors - how about grass green! So far no issues with pilling or anything. They all look brand new. I've had my first tank for over a year. I use them for crossfit so they don't get gentle treatment.
