Yogi Racer Tank
I loved this tank so much I purchased four. Sized down to a 2 (wear a CRB in 2-4, 32B), and like it for its double duty as casual wear and work out wear. It's light, and flowy but also sexy due to the sheerness.
Unfortunately, all the rumors of pilling are true. I wore my inkwell one ONCE on a hike with a very light camelback, and the rubbing from the strap pilled the front so horribly I cannot wear it anymore. I find this intolerable because I used it to exercise and it does not perform. And it was not cheap.
I emailed Lulu and they did not apologize for the quality. They did offer me a refund, but to be honest, I like the tank, I just want it to not pill. I don't want to return things. Frustrated.

Better off buying a different tank
Was super excited when I first got this tank for my birthday as it was lightweight and cute. However, before I even wore it, there were already pills in it. I don't understand how an item can pill before I even wear it or before it's first wash! I already took the tags off before I put the garment on and realized a minute later it was already ruined. Should have waited but I was too excited to have it, so now I am stuck with a tank top I will never get to wear because of pilling.

Cute but lots of pilling
I have a love/hate relationship with this tank. The fit is perfect and I love the sheerness. However, after one wash (following lulu's instructions) there was pilling. I got this tank in a couple colors in March and had already retired them by April. I stopped wearing them because they looked so dingy and used. It's a shame because I really did love them at first. I don't think I would recommend this tank simply because of the pilling issue. Also the seams snag very easily :(

In love with this tank, but it is pilling
I am absolutely in love with this tank (have it in sheer white), and would like to buy it in every color. It's soft, flattering, and so comfortable. However, I too have noticed some pilling, particularly around the arm holes... I'm guessing where some sweat accumulates. I've only washed it once so far (carefully by hand, laid flat to dry), so I can't quite figure out where to attribute the pilling, but either way it makes me sad. Lulu, please make this top in a non-pill version! I will buy every single color!

Flow and GO!
This is a GREAT top for both heated vinyasa power flow yoga and "to and from" the studio! I wore it as a "to the studio" top but forgot my CRB and ended up practicing in it. I'm glad I did because I realized what a versatile top this is. I have it in black, and a bright Lulu bra looks GREAT underneath! I will be purchasing more of these! Also, I can get whatever fit I choose without the top looking "too slouchy" or "too tight." I bought a 6 and a 10; both have a great look that are completely different.

If you don't feel like wearing tight shirts to the gym, this is by far the best shirt...I own in 4 colors and they are all great. The shirts are extremely light weight and some colors are sheer. There is a possibility that the fabric can snag, has not happened to me, but I can see how it could if you aren't careful.

This top, tanked.
This is a great top, when used as an overlay for a sports bra. I, actually like it's slight sheerness. I purchased it last Friday, wore it to yoga class on Saturday, washed it Monday and that's when things went South. I washed and hung it to dry, as I do with all of my lulu gear ... but oddly, in this case ... there were little fabric balls all over the shirt ... it just didn't fare well in the washer. I'm actually rather perplexed at the end result. My shirts not even 7 days old, and it looks like I've had it for a very long time. I'm bummed, 'cause after the first wear - I'd already made plans to go back and buy other colors. Now, well -- that's not going to happen. Sad.

This tank fits TTS, and it's a little sheer even in the black (which shows are more opaque online). It's cute, but clings to other fabrics in a not-so-attractive way. I could've dealt with all of these things, but after only a few times wearing and washing it (according to the care instructions), it's pilled like crazy on the chest. That's not even an area that gets much wear. I'd understand if it was maybe a hip or something, but the chest?? Come on, Lulu. This is pretty pathetic.

LOVE this tank!
This is such a cute tank!
I bought it in lavender dusk at my local lululemon on markdown and I want to buy another! When i tried it on it was very clingy to my body but it was not that way when I wore to to the gym. It is a flowy top, I bought a size 2 (which is my normal tank size). I love the lightweight fabric, it is perfect to run, lift, or do yoga in! I've even worn it a few times to class. I am very careful washing it after reading some of the other reviews, but I haven't had any problems.

On the fence
I love this tank, I have purchased 2 so far. Unfortunately, the tank is very delicate. I bought the white about 2 weeks ago and have 2 small holes located in the front mid section of the tank. I am very careful when it comes to my lulu items and washing them as prescribed. Not sure if I will be purchasing this item again.
