Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew
My usual 10 was tight. Sized up to a 12 and I was fine.

So close to perfect!
I have a drawer full of short sleeve Swiftly Crews, and I so wanted to love this one for chilly morning workouts and wearing to work when they crank the AC in the summer, but unfortunately the sleeves on this top are FAR too tight! I would say I have average-sized athlete arms with some muscle, and it takes a significant effort to pull these sleeves on. And if you're wearing a watch, don't even think about pulling it over the watch. I don't think I have particularly big arms, so I'm sure other ladies are having the same problem. Going to keep this one as a layering basic, but please make the arms looser, and I'll fill another drawer with long sleeves!

SO COMFY, Favorite Shirt! (Only one problem...)
This classic, Lululemon style, super-soft and stretchy long sleeve tee was my go-to for running, or even just wearing around the house. I love how it forms to your body and feels tight but not uncomfortable. This shirt is super stretchy and comes in tons of colors. The only issue I had with this top was that it snags SO EASILY! Within my first few times wearing it, it had already snagged. So beware because this shirt gets caught on everything! I ended up having to exchange mine because it had such a bad snag it became a hole. But overall, this shirt is a must-have-- even if you have to be a little more careful when wearing it.

BEST WORKOUT TOP EVER!
I have more of these than I'll admit to. I wear them for yoga, gym, chilly days, layered under sweaters for work, class, or under outdoor gear from fishing to skiing. Extremely lightweight, pack well, wick sweat away better than anything, dry QUICKLY on my body or out of the wash on a hanger. Warm when i need it & breathable when hot. Ive not had any issue with these smelling bad when I sweat. Soft & Easy to throw on for daily errands. LOVE!!! fit TTS-I do size up sometimes when I want one not very fitted. Fits well on long waists but not too long. Sleeves are perfect, not short (thumb-hole pain) & not too long. (I'd prefer long to short so thumbholes are wearable). (I always size up in the short sleeve as they seem more narrow in width from torso to shoulders on me).
I had to make a review because of the others. I Don't understand the many complaints: "mine snagged the first day." "mine snagged 3 times!" "mine snagged and got a small hole". I believe the Swiftly is made of nylon or some other fragile, technical material & certainly they will snag if not a little careful. Not like an annoying sweater that catches Everything. But sure if they catch on something rough or one is pulling it on too hard, or doing a tough mudder and going through barb wire they may snag.
It's happened to me maybe 3-5 times. One Swiftly in particular snagged a ton while packing boxes, moving, doing a garage sale, cleaning etc-so i wear that one for those kinds of activities. The others I've learned to be careful with. and then of course if washed and worn several times a week, they'll wear out more like anything (use a sink if you do that).
There has been a time or 2 I snagged a Lulu shirt the first time I wore it & disappointedly thought "gosh, thats Such a BUMMER! I snagged my shirt!" But unless it was defective and falling apart, I'd not complain and return it. Having worked retail, I know the customers who have legitimate issues and those who just want new merchandise.
The Run Swiftly is an AWESOME WORKOUT shirt you'll LOVE! Definitely be a bit mindful wearing & caring for it outside of a Run or Yoga class.

I want one in every color!
This is one of my favorite products. It is great for working out, as well as to wear casually. I recommend sizing up as they are rather tight fitting.

a must-have for all runners!
love this running top, great for the cold weather but wonderfully breathable once you get warm up
highly recommend this top, good for gym workouts as well
tight fit is best to make the most of the breathability of the fabric
i got this in the heathered lullaby and haven't looked back since

I am totally completely in love with this shirt except after wearing it once it got a terrible snag which turned into a hole! Very upseting considering the cost.

Easy to move in!
This is my first long sleeve top to use at the gym and its great! Its comfy, easy to move in, doesn't smell, doesn't show up sweat marks and those thumb holes are great!
I did get the teal colour, just not sure if i need to wear anything under it because it shows my tummy moving when I do exercises.

Nice shirt but snags too easily for the price
I really enjoyed this shirt and I received it as a gift. However, I have only worn it a handful of times and it snagged in 3 places and one of the snags became a hole. I have seen that other people have commented about this as well. Have any updates been made to the shirt so this will not happen in future purchases? I own two of the t-shirts in the same styles and I have not had any problems with snagging with those shirts.

I've always been on the hunt for the perfect long sleeve shirt to run in. This shirt is the best! I am 5'2" and 140 lbs and the purple in size 8 fit perfect. It does stretch out a bit after sweating in it for a long run. But I feel that it still looks good. I've also purchased the pink in size 6 seeing how the 8 stretched out. This shirt is a little on the tight side when first put on but again stretched out after a little bit and was just perfect. (I wish there was a size 7). I'll keep the size 6 for my skinny days and plan to purchase another size 8 in turquoise.
My only complaint is that the material does snag, as per earlier reviews. The shirt is far too pricey to snag but until I can find a similiar item, the pros outweight the cons (stretching, snagging) for me.
