Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Crew
I waited a long time, and watched a few pretty colors come and go (sadly, forever) before I purchased one of these. I was very worried that I wouldn't be able to take care of one of these tops because of how delicate the fabric is... and the fact that I'm a klutz with two little dogs who like to jump on me. Anyway! I finally bought one, in white. It's form fitting and looks sharp on. My dogs have clawed it and I've pretty much done everything to it except set it on fire... and it still looks good! No holes! My only problem(s) with this top is that the lower sleeves (the part that is over your wrist) are tight, and the shirt does ride up my chest a little. I am always having to pull the top back down... But that doesn't bother me anywhere near as much as the tight lower sleeves. Hopefully they will fix that! Anyway, if you're hesitating to buy these very expensive tops because you're afraid they'll rip like most of the reviewers here said... I'd recommend you just start with one, and see how it goes for you. Don't buy three, or even two... Just one! and give it a couple of months before you buy any more. Also, I'm a 34B, 5'2" and 107lbs... I wear a size 6, just like I do in all the sports bras (unless I get a fluke that fits too small... which can and does happen with Lululemon). This top is good for me on the cool weather days that I am cycling outdoors. Hope this helps :-)

Love this top
I love love LOVE this top!! I have worn it to run, weight train, and even practice yoga when the studio has been a little bit colder as we are heading into fall. I recently bought this top and was a bit hesitant because I thought that I'd overheat in this, but it keeps me cool, yet warm when I need it if that makes sense. It's so comfortable I will wear it as a normal shirt with jeans since it's so comfortable. I've worn this top about 5 times and I just bought it about a week and a half ago. You could say I'm obsessed.
HOWEVER- I do notice that this shirt snags SO easily. I haven't even washed it yet (hey it doesn't ever stink, so whatever) and I don't roll around in rose bushes.
I will layer it over my forme jacket or a north face when its colder, so maybe the zippers affect it? I'm not really sure, but I'm so annoyed that it's snagged so much. Like with tax it's over 70 dollars, and I always am willing to pay a lululemon premium for excellent workout gear and have had no issues like this before. I'm not sure if this is just a super delicate top, or what.
So I'd suggest to be super careful with this top, for it snags super easily... but I do love everything else about it!

So comfortable you will want to sleep in it
Really soft, comfortable, breathable. Great colours. Stays in place. I want one in every colour.

Love these tops please make more!
These are my favorite to run in or work out....they are so comfy I don't want to take them off when I get home! Thin yet warm...perfect! I do wish they stayed down better during the run but the length does help it to do so...I have a short sleeve one that rides up more. They are true to size. PLEASE PLEASE make more...I need one that matches my cadet blue running pants from the spring!! The periwinkle color PLEASE!! TIA!!!

I bought 2 of these last February while visiting NYC. I wore them everywhere! They are the most comfortable material. When I returned home, I washed them in the gentle cycle (did not dry them) and they both pilled like crazy. They are now unwearable. Can I return? I do not have my receipt anymore since I discarded in NY.

I'm a fan of these tops! They are incredibly soft and warm. My only quibble with them is that they're a bit tight in the arms (but I'm a bit muscular there). However, I do like that they're a bit loose in the waist; I don't feel as though I have to keep tugging my shirt down during a run or workout (I'm 5'2, 106 lbs, wear a size 4 in lulu). The crew neck on the long sleeve shirt is incredibly flattering, much more so than the scoop neck, in my opinion.
I also love the color selections--I recently got it in the red stripe and the heathered black, which to the rest of the world is gray :), as well as a space dyed blue shirt from last year, which has survived a number of washings without snagging yet (I machine wash and hang to dry, and it still feels like my newer shirts). Please bring the teal color back in more sizes, as well as consider making this top in other colors this fall/winter! I'd buy in a heartbeat.

Love the material - soooo soft
This top is so soft and silky I don't want to take it off. My only complaint is that the Swiftly tops are all loose around my waist, but snug everywhere else. I don't want a smaller size because it will probably ride up while running if it is any tighter around my hips. I can't wait to try this out for a run. Also, the sleeve length is perfect for me.

This feels amazing. It's a little more plush than some of my other LS Swiftlys. I think because of that, you could size down. The arms don't feel tight like Swiftly arms tend to. I'm a TTS 6 and that's what I went with, but I do get the feeling that it will stretch because of the softer material.
