Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew
Not what I expected...
I have several crew and scoop short-sleeved Swiftly Tech tops and I love them all. I bought my first long-sleeved Tech top without trying it on because I figured I would love it like the others...I was very wrong! I got home and tried it on and the sleeves were so tight it took awhile to even get it on, and once on the sleeves did not allow comfortable movement. I always wear a 4 in Lulu tops and I am petite so my arms aren't large at all...really wish Lulu would add some material to the arms so that I could wear it comfortably!

I love the Swiftly Tech products Lulu offers but this shirt is a little different to me. What I mean is that the body of this shirt is great, perfect length and fit but the arms is where my problem stands. The arms of this shirt are so tight, I can't even roll the sleeves up a little bit if I wanted to. It is too tight for my liking and quite uncomfortable. I would not buy this shirt again.

I purchased this item a couple months ago and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I got it in grey and I run and play tennis in it! Sometimes I will just wear it out, also. It makes you look pretty slim and is very comfortable. I love the thumb holes too. i usually HATE tight fitting clothes, but i am looking back now to purchase one in blue! If you are on the edge of buying this, GET IT!

A Myth: Love at First Sight
As an avid runner, I stumbled into Lululemon at the urging of my gym friend. I spoke with the very friendly sales reps, who recommended this long sleeve top as a great running option. I quickly tried the top on and was instantly in love. After hearing great things about Lululemon and the quality of their products, I decided to drop the $68.
Today, I was excited to wear the top over my running tank on my way to the gym. However, while shedding this layer, I noticed that there was a pull on one of the sleeves. This is extremely disappointing, as I have yet to even work out in the top. Although the top is definitely cute, the high level of quality that Lululemon is renowned for seems like pure hype.

Pretty but flimsy
This is a beautiful top with very long sleeves (awesome for us tall girls) but I ordered my usual 6 and the sleeves were SUPER tight. I'm 6 feet tall and 140 (read: skinny arms) and the sleeves were reeaalllyy tight on me.
The shirt is soft and beautiful but feels more flimsy than anything. With all the comments about it snagging easily (and it really seems like it will) it's just not worth the $70 price tag. Sadly, I'm returning it. Lulu, thanks for the beautiful color selections on this one but please make the fabric a little thicker!

Great running top but...
I love this top for running and cross training. It stays in place, is warm enough for cool mornings but light weight enough for when the temp starts to rise. Although I love this top and want to wear it, I find I am unable to as it has the strangest chemical smell I have ever encountered on a piece of clothing. I have washed on gentle 6 times in hopes that the smell will go away but each time I put it on there is that smell. I have other tops in this material and they don't have the strange chemical smell.

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.
