Runner Up Tank
So I've had this tank since it was released...but I've only worn it twice. After putting in on yesterday (having only washed it once - and trust me I follow strict Lulu washing instructions) I noticed several spots where the color has faded/bleached. I'm not sure what was going on with this release but the Stuff Your Bra and Bang Buster head band I purchased in the Heathered Aquamarine/Groovy Stripe Cadet Blue to go with this tank both experienced the same thing.....very disappointed for sure!!

My first LuLu disappointment
I have never had any quality issues with any of my LuLu items (and I have a lot) until this tank. I received this tank in the mail and tried it on and it fit great - though not as slim as I would have hoped/liked but I loved the detailing on the back and how my Stuff Your Bra bra looked underneath. I wore it for a relatively short run (3 miles) and upon taking it off I noticed the inside was piling and snagging where it was "rubbing" against my running belt. Mind you this an iFitness running belt I use to hold my phone and car key that I've been wearing for years and never had this problem with any other LuLu tanks. Since I've worn it and it no longer has tags I guess I'm stuck and will continue to wear it but I am definitely disappointed. For those of you buying this tank I am 5'4"/123lbs/32D and ordered a size 6 (which I pretty much wear consistently in LuLu) but think I could have gone with the 4 in this one.

LOVE IT! Except....
I loved this tank - from the minute I put it on... Except for 2 things - the neck line doesn't sit properly - it's all askew. It doesn't matter how many times I adjust it, it reverts back to sitting crooked :( I wore this for the first time yesterday to boot camp and I noticed when I got home, it's snagged in at least 8 spots! Not just the silver threads, but the regular material as well :( If you buy this tank, be warned, it's delicate, and clearly not meant for super active wear.

I saw this top at my local store and fell in love with it even though I wasn't even shopping for a tank top. I'm a runner and I live in FL so this top is very good for the weather here. It's very light and flattering. Something about the material makes it stay cool. I'm not sure I'd like to be a Runner Up :-) That's what mine says. I'd rather be first. But my local store had the silver one on sale and not the black ones, so I figured I can handle being a runner up. It's cute and very comfy.

love this tank
I read all the reviews before buying, so I thought I should write one. I orginally ordered the No Limits Tank, but returned it, because it just ddin't fit me well (to run in). I went to the store & it was recommend that I try this one on. I love it. It is great for summer running, very light weight. I like running with my own bra underneath, so this is great. I have to be very careful how I take care of this though because the fabric is so lightweight & thin. I orginally tried on a size 4 & it made the material thin, so I went up to a 6 & that made the difference. The fit was much better.
I bought the blue, as I didn't like the words or colors of the others. So other colors without words would be nice.
For reference I am 5'4 & 122 pounds (anywhere from a size 4-6).
Hope this helps others

Makes me overheat
I have worn this tank a few times and each time I wore it I would become extremely overheated. This is not a normal occurrence for me and I thought it was just me until I noticed it was only when I wore this tank top.
Very disappointing as I have no need to wear it except when I workout and that is no longer an option. A waste of $ as Lululemon does not accept returns on worn products (even from their R&D members).

Get rid of the writing
I LOVE this tank. Especially the length and the back detailing. I just wish there were more colors without the writing. I don't buy shirts with writing on them.
I sized down and it fit perfectly! If more tanks available writing-free I'd buy.

Another winner (Even if I'm "Runner Up") *wink*
I waited years for Lululemon to bring back the silverescent racerback. Lots of other styles came out, but most didn't have the racerback. I pretty much live in my energy tanks or silver bullet tanks for all workouts. They graze the skin and don't accentuate lumps and bumps. They're also extremely lightweight and sweatwicking, unlike CRBs which now make me feel like a sausage, suffocating in luon, LOL!
The "Runner up" term doesn't bother me...I'm all about comfort. The color combination of the gray & white is really pretty. If these go on markdown, I will certainly buy all the colors because this fabric is a MAJOR winner. I've never even had snags in any of my tanks, and they wash up so nicely. No warping or shrinking!
For reference, I have a 32E, 5'9, and 140 lbs. I wear a size 6. I wear a size 4 or 6 in the 105 singlet, an 6 in power ys, and an 8 in CRBs. I usually wear a size 8 in lululemon bras also.
Buy these up before they're gone for the summer! They're a must for sweaty crossfit gyms when you don't want to go shirtless (ahem, me.)

New all time summer favorite!!!!!
I do not understand and bad reviews on this tank. It is simply amazing! Lightweight for summer, extremely flattering, and beautiful. I'm in love. Iran more colors come out!!! The design on the back is so eye catching. It is long, but not any longer than a crb. Just not as fitted. This is a home run lulu. For reference I am 5'5, 130 and 6 is perfect. More colors please!!!!!

I like the ss version of this tank but the ss is shorter in length. The tank is way too long. When I tried it on with speeds, it looked like I wasnt wearing shorts. I cant seem to find a good lulu tank to run it, mostly because everything is too long or rides up (swiftly) when i run :/
