Run For Gold 1/2 Zip
loved. but what's with the dingy mauvelous?
got it in the mail this morning. Super excited. take it out of the bag and it's a grey/neutral dusty rose colour. ugh. in the pics online it looks bright and on the pink/white side. not so much. love the style but it is going back. I will have to wait for a colour I can wear. The other pink was nice but hated the colour block. (sigh) have been so disappointed with everything coming out of lulu lately. Either there aren't any good colours or the product falls apart/pills or is see through. Just can't win these days.

Ordered this in a 4 online, in black, for reference I am 5-7 and 127 , very thin arms and long torso. The 4 was skin tight, so I returned in store, and saw the gold! So much prettier! Got the gold in size 6 and it is a complete winner. Nice long length in arms and torso as usual with lulu, but it breaths so nicely when you work out you don't get over heated. Very flattering fit, color and nice combo of fabric. I just layer with any lulu tank. Great half zip.

Run For Gold 1/2 Zip - Not entirely impressed
Fair because I enjoyed the comfort, the light weight of the shirt, especially being a bit looser fitting long sleeved.
But, the first cleaning the mesh material started balling up and getting caught on anything and everything. Not 2wks and there is a hole along my left arm.
I own a lot of Lululemon, and this is the first one that disappointed me.

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!
