We designed this run top to be our constant companion whenever we lace up our sneakers. We made the body seamless to keep us comfortable when we get super sweaty on long runs and designed it to be lightweight so it's easy to carry when we need to strip down.
fabric + features
wear this on its own or as a lightweight base layer in cool weather workouts
Silverescent™ powered by X-STATIC® inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria on the long sleeve
the tee's core construction is seamless to help keep sweaty skin from getting irritated
where there are seams, they are engineered flat to help keep chafing at bay
the thumbholes help keep sleeves down and hands warm
I bought this top for my early morning runs and am very disappointed with the quality. For the price I would expect this to last a decent amount of time, but I have already snagged a hole in the sleeve! During one of my runs (sweaty of course), I took it off and it ripped! I thought the material would be great for runs because it's breathable, but it is just too thin. I'm so sad because I love all of my lulu gear!

Lightweight and Great For Layering
Overall liked the shirt. Sized up to an 8 normally a 6 in Lululemon. It's lightweight and wicks sweat really well. When it dries of sweat, it doesn't smell which is good.
I didn't really like the length of both the shirt and the arms. I find myself having to roll up the sleeves all the time because they get in the way. The length in the torso was too long that I had to get the shirt hemmed. I also found the sleeves to be really tight that when I would do any shoulder to overhead work (CrossFit style lifting), my right arm would go numb (almost like wearing a compression shirt).

Snaggy - Love
I just loved this awesome shirt when I bought it. Fit great, love the thumbholes, love the length, love the pattern, love that it feels like nothing on - Sad News - second time I wore it I got a snag - worse - then the snag turned into a run right across the chest. Sooo dissapointed, this has never happened with any of my other Lulu clothes. Q: Did the company change manufacturers or?

Great except for snagging
The Good: I wanted another layer to wear under my rulu tops because I'm a warm runner and don't like running in jackets. This is awesome as a first layer for cold runs. On the coldest runs, I need only this swiftly and a rulu top, and I'm warm without overheating. Also, the anti-stink technology really works!
The Bad: Even though I read so many reviews warning about snagging, I bought one and vowed to be super careful with it. I did everything right: took off all rings and jewelry before putting it on; didn't let anything touch it except my rulu top; washed it by itself on gentle cycle in a laundry bag. And yet I have two snags after only washing it about three times. How is that possible?! Another con is that it rides up when I wear it with my luxtreme speed tights. And I mean riding up like to my bra so that I have to pull up my top (and expose my belly in the cold!) to pull it down.
The Fit: I'm 5'7" 145 pounds and wear a Lulu size 6 (for a tighter fit) or 8 (for a looser fit). I got a size 8 in this for the longer length and like the loose fit.
The Bottom Line: I would give it five stars if it were supposed to be a disposable top (as in, you can only wear it so many times before the snags take over and make it unwearable) and if Lulu put it at a much lower price point. On the other hand, it is a great first-layer running top. Hey Lulu, is there any way to re-design the material so it doesn't snag so much? I would buy one in every color if it didn't snag just by (seemingly) being exposed to air. But as it is now, I won't buy another nor recommend this to a friend.

Crazy comfortable, makes me want to go run!
Tight fitting fitting but didn't make me feel self conscious. Crazy cozy and comfy. This shirt makes me want to go for a run. Perfect for under a sweatshirt or jacket. For reference I'm 5'5 120lbs and a size 6 is perfect. Would highly recommend. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the high price.

Comfy But Delicate
After seeing the fun colors of he heathered surge and heathered green bean (not worn this color yet) I couldn't pass it up. I normally am a size 8 in lulu but I did size up to a 10 just to give me more of a loose fit. I love the colors. I will say that the one I have worn thus far is the heathered surged and I did notice some sweat staining on it and it was not just under the arms, so I am hoping that with a wash it will come out otherwise I am going to be very upset. I ran in it and it was perfect as far as weight and breathability. You do need to be careful wearing it though because IT WILL SNAG easy. Sadly I have already snagged mine, which shouldn't be that easy with the price point but as long as the sweat comes off and it is not discolored then I MIGHT be able to over look.

Like so many other reviews, I too have been so disappointed by this top. This was my very first Lulu purchase years ago in grey and the shirt is delicious and very high quality. What happened? The one that I purchased recently pulled and snagged right away. It seems much thinner. What a shame.

I'm happy with this long sleeves because it keeps me warm, it's light weight, and it doesn't inhibit my tennis strokes. I love the colors, and wear it over a tank, and it's functional for me.
It's true to size!

NOT my lulu
I absolutely love! Great fit and easy to move in. I broke my arm and I may have shed a tear when the ER Nurse had to CUT IT OFF in order to get me into surgery! I can't wait to get another :) My only concern is how easily the shirt picks.

Perfect in Every Way
I just received this top in the mail today and the second I put it on, I was instantly IN LOVE. I'm a Curvy, muscular long distance runner & weight lifter. I'm 5'1 & 127lbs, 31,26,34 & purchased this in a sz 4 which fits like a glove. The material is so so soft; it shows off the curve of my back beautifully, has a long, slimming & flattering look on my arms & the length is perfect with my Pace Setter skirts. It is stylish, functional, warm & clearly made with precision & detail:) I am heading to my local Lululemon to purchase this in the other colours as I know this is going to be my new long sleeve Run staple for the winter and straight thru into spring:) BRAVO Lululemon??
