Run: Swiftly Tech Racerback *Shortcut
I love the Swiftly tanks so much, and until recently I'd only bought the regular length. When the shortcuts came up on WMTM, I figured I'd probably like them, being that I'm 5'3". But turns out, I do like the regular length- maybe because I'm curvy? Which isn't to say the shortcut is a bad tank, I just prefer the regular length. Really love the fresh teal version- so pretty.

Second Favourite Racerback
Such a lightweight tank but for me personally I prefer the fit of the Cool Racerback.
This tank seems a little shorter & not quite so flattering, however I would buy again if the color was right for me!

OK, I was fully expecting to love this tank. I own a bra of the same fabric and adore it. However, I just couldn't get the fit to work out for me. My normal size fit similar to the fit on the model in the pics (seems to fit fine except for some weird extra fabric around the ribs). Sizing down nearly fixed the problem around the rib area but felt a little snug around my hips and was unflattering to my lower abs. Sizing up didn't quite accomplish a casual loose look as the fabric was still visibly tighter in the chest/hips area. It could just be my body type and I wonder if this would fit someone with a straighter midsection/hip but I haven't had this fit issue with other lulu tanks.

No complaints with this one. I found this to be a better fit than the regular swiftly racerback. That one I found runs large - an 8 was too baggy for me, but an 8 in the shortcut fits perfect. Will buy more for sure.

Super lightweight tank
I love this material and own many run swiftly ss and haven't had any issues with the durability with them. It's very airy and feels like you're not wearing anything so it's great for really hot days.
The fit is TTS but it is on the looser side so if you're on the fence you could easily size down one. The length is great, not too short (I'm 5'5') and find it pretty long for a "shortcut"...I have the shortcut version of the CRB and find them a bit shorter than this tank. It's an ideal length and I don't find it to ride up or be intrusive in any way.

My new lulu fave
This is my new favourite lulu purchase. I love the extra light material (wicks so much better than CRB) and the shorter fit, will definitely be returning to get some more colours!

better than the regular cool racerback
There was a time a few months ago when I was so busy that I hadn't stopped into a Lulu store or checked out the stuff online for at least 3 months - unheard of for me! So of course, when Lululemon tweeted about this tank, my first reaction was, "A swiftly tech racerback?!", followed by, "I can't believe they've had this out for a while now and I missed it!"
I'm a huge fan of the swiftly tech line - I've got a few long sleeves, as well as short sleeve ST shirts, which meant that I had to get to a Lulu store ASAP to try the racerback tank. The tank did not disappoint. It's super lightweight, just like the regular shirts. Covers everything it needs to cover, and the racerback shape itself allows unrestricted movement of your shoulders. As a petite gal, this length is perfect for me. It does get a little stretched out once you've gotten it all sweaty and stuff and have taken it off, which worried me a bit after the first wearing, but pop that baby in the washer & the dryer (on delicate!), and it's good to go.
In my opinion, this one is much better than the regular cool racerback tank. Will definitely be buying more!

LOVE IT - PERFECT FOR RUNNING!!!!
This are fantastic for running in the Summer heat. I am short (5'1'') and petite (~100 lbs), and the length is great. One of my favorite tanks -- comfy, dries fast, true to size, and cute. My only complaint -- PLEASE MAKE MORE SIZE 4 IN ALL COLORS!!! I WOULD BUY THEM ALL!

This tank is perfect for running in the summer and for lifting! It's great for moisture wicking (and I sweat A LOT). I haven't had any issues with riding up for the tank but have had this a little bit with the swiftly tee. I wonder if the shorter cut helps with this? Lulu, please don't take away the short cut for the tees! And maybe try the short cut in other swiftly items, please! Also, the silverscent does really prevent you from getting too smelly!

Rides up, but way worth it
I own several tops in the Run Swiftly material-about half size 4s and the rest size 6s. I'm usually between those sizes in lulu tops so I can't say whether it fits TTS or not. I wear the 4s for running because I find that with the tighter fit and shorter torso they don't ride up as much. I prefer wearing the 6s for weight lifting because I find the slightly looser look more flattering and it doesn't ride up when I'm cleaning or squatting. I would recommend sizing down if you are worried about it riding up and if possible by the shorter version. Frankly though, the material is wonderful. I packed two of these tanks on a recent trip to Hawaii, each in their own SNACK SIZE Ziplock. They were comfortable in the humidity there and are so light. Not gonna lie, I wore both a couple times before washing (cold, separate, hang dry) and they looked and smelled fresh as ever. It really is a spectacular fabric and it is about the only thing I keep coming back for at lulu. I really hope they don't mess with these because they are the best workout tops I've ever worn.
