Run For Gold 1/2 Zip
Eye catching top!
I got the Bumble Berry in a size 10, and it is stunning. In long sleeved Lulu tops, I typically wear a 10, and this ran true to size. It's neither too tight nor too loose through the chest or mid-section (in case anyone has a lil pooch). The half zip is flattering. I haven't worked out in it yet, but the construction seems absolutely fine. The material is super lightweight, and a tank could either be worn or not worn underneath. If it wasn't quite so expensive, I'd get another color or two. I got the inky floral ghost speeds to wear with this, and wow....what an outfit! It really could go with a number of other bottoms, though.

This top is great! I love the fit and the material. I find it to be true to size. I find the material very nice and soft. Of course, this is not rulu so it is not as soft as rulu but it is great!
I will definitely buy again in different colors!

This top is very flattering. The material is a bit thinner than I expected. I don't see it being practical for running but great for a casual day. Fits TTS. The colour is beautiful, I got the bumbleberry.

Nice Lightweight Half Zip in Ghost and in Black
I bought the ghost half zip in my TTS 6, which I found was a little looser than normal, but not loose enough to size down IMO. I was also afraid that if I sized down, the band on the bottom would be too snug on my hips and would cause it to ride up when I ran. Anyway, I really love it in the cream color; it is lightweight and silky. The reflective details are great and I always like having a pocket. The only thing I didn't like was the material of the bumble berry one --- that material, while supposedly the same, felt thicker and more stiff, so it was nowhere near as comfortable as the cream one, which is a bummer b/c the bumble berry is gorgeous in person. I wish all colors in the same item would actually be the same material in terms of feel, fit and weight. Note: the black one felt the same as the cream to me, so it was just the bumble berry one that was stiffer.

Love how light is feels. It fits a little looser than the other tops for running like the 'Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew' where I'm normally a size 4 so I got a size 2. Just wish the side pocket was a little bigger since I only use my iPhone 5S for music. It fits but it's really snug with a Mophie case on. (yes I know I could just remove it for my workouts but I'm clumsy and drop things a lot...)

Perfect Transition piece
I purchased this a few weeks ago and kept the tags on as I initially had mixed feelings about this one. It is way more flattering on than on the hanger. I decided to keep it and took it for a 5k test run in warm humid weather. The ventilation was amazing and it was very comfortable on . It is perfect for cooler evening runs. I am typically a 6 in all Lulu tops but went for an 8 as I felt it was a tad too fitted ( I bought the cream). Overall this top was abit pricey but I will get lots of use out of this one.

I didn't think much of this online and happy to see it at the store today. They had all 3 colors and I fell in love with the cream one. It is either a TTS or larger of your 2 sizes piece. I am 5'2, 110 and took it in a 4. ( I am 2-4 in lullu). It has a hidden size zipper that fits my car key but a tight squeeze for a phone. The side mesh is sheer but great for warmer weather runs. The reflective details are super cute. Only negative is I feel it should have been priced around $78. After taxes I paid over $100 for this. Hope its worth it!

amazing for hot weather runs
This shirt is super comfortable, super flattering, super sweat wicking. I wore this running for 18 miles in 70 degree sunny weather and it was perfect. Not totally see through but can make out outline of sports bra in back. the zipper is the perfect size for a GU pack and keys. Am ordering in black as well. I got the size 4 - am 5'6, 121 lbs, 34A, and wear a 4 in all things lulu. Definitely true to size.

I received my online order today and the design was great when I tried it on. I ordered the bumbleberry color. I like the placement of the mesh. The only one thing I didn't like was the feeling of the fabric, it's not as smooth as my other luxtreme items. It would be 4 star if the fabric is more smooth. The lack of smoothness made me considering whether I should keep or return it. I haven't decided yet.
I usually wear size 4 for swiftly tech and size 6 for forme jackets (or other half zips that I wear another layer underneath. I chose size 6 for this as I intend to wear something underneath. If I don't wear anything underneath, I could have gone with size 4 for a tighter fitting.

not a fan
I was so excited to receive my new item in bumble berry, but I am not a fan at all.
Fit: I normally buy a 10 in all tops, so i went with a 10 for this one too, so i don't recommend sizing up. This top is a tight fit and they mean it. I found that it was tight in the waist area but the shoulders had extra room. the sleeves are ridiculously long, and I found them to look kind of sloppy because of how long they were.
Normally I love the fabric. Have lots of crops in this fabric, but I did not like it for a top. It felt uncomfortable and hugged all the wrong things.
This is not a horrible piece, but I did not feel good in this top, so i will have to return.
