Runbeam Long Sleeve
Love this top...just not in white
Lulu does not seem to be able to make a white top that can survive being washed on delicate and hung to dry. I have bought this top twice (the definition of crazy...keep doing the same thing over and over) and it always turns a horrible grey color after a few washings. I have several Nike and Adidas tops that this has not happened with but everything Lulu I have had that starts white, goes grey and I feel like such a dupe for purchasing another white item and hoping for the best. I love this top. Please make it in other colors...red, pink, green, blue...anything but white. I have three black that I rotate but in the summer, black is just too hot.

This top is very cute. I have the white with polka dots. Love the fit. I also like that it has SPF. As a result, it doesn't keep you as dry as the Run Swiftly. I would like this top in other colours.

love it - i sized down and it fits!!!!
I bought the polka doti to wear with my Bumbleberry crops - but I took a big chance sizing down based on one review that had sizing. I am a 6 in LLL tops - except for the swiftly racerback and the savasna wrap and the next to nothing top, as they are looser fitting I sized down to 4. This is a snug fitting top but it fits on the chest and stomach area just like my size 6 tops - for reference I am 5'4" 130lbs and 32B/34A - the top fits perfect on chest and back and a tiny bit loose on stomach area!!
There is no mention of the material however it is stretchy light weight fullux type fabric with a light mesh insert under arms - similar to fabric used for many of the flowy summer yoga tops . I just hope it doesn't go dingy though I have several all white tops that have stayed white, however I do have the palm print black/white skirt with black/white striped shorts underneath that look like the white is dingy sandy yellowish colour - I thought they were bright white when I first got them. Perhaps the black dye bleeds a tiny bit causing discolouration. I will be extra careful to wash with only whites....then again not sure I want it to turn my other tops dingy since they are crisp white! LOVE THIS TOP

I love white so on the rare occasion Lulu puts out something in white, I tend to pounce. I bought the white/ nimbus version of this, and I have it in black also and the red from last year. I wear these for running. The white/ nimbus is pretty dingy looking from the start, not a nice crisp white. The nimbus part is more of an off white. I'd like it all to be a nice bright white, but bought it anyway. After a few wears, it's really yellowed and looks 100 years old. For the price, it really looks awful. And there's no way I am walking into a store to complain, especially without receipt - I know they will act like it's the biggest inconvenience that I dared to say anything. Lulu just does not do white well - it seems to happen to all their white clothing. Nike/ Adidas/ UnderArmour white clothes seem to stay white.

I've used Lululemon products over 10 years and I'm so disappointed to see their product quality goes down year by year.
I still have a pair of yoga pants I bought from here about ten years ago and they are still good but the one I bought recently are not the same.
This top was great when I got at the beginning and I loved it!!
but after few wear the under arm part starting to get destroyed.
This is not what I expected from 90 dollars top from Lululemon.
WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!!! AND VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

I bought 6 of these tops, I washed two of my white ones together(one only wore one time and other wore 2 times) washed alone and they both bled from black piping. I have one still with tags have not worn. My 3 black ones are fine and have washed and washed them and no issues. I loved the crisp white ones but now I have lost 2 very expensive lulu's, and now i am very lolo. I bought some online and some at location.
What is my next step? Parade into my local lulu store with my bag of 2 shirts and be treated like a complete looney with a problem. Just not good for me....so please advise?

Get away of light colors...
I love this top but I'm so frustrated....The only drawback is that after washing it a few times the white seems to be slowly getting a little dingy it;s not white any more.This is not the first time with this kind of material in white colors.Now looks like an old top.I just bought a white pace setter skirt and I'm thinking of return it.So sad.....

Best Long Sleeve...Dare I say, EVER!
I bought the white polka dot shirt and love the contrast red piping. It's so cute and somehow even though it's printed it still matches my other printed bottoms. (Favorite combo is the chevron print Shake and Break short and the polka dot runbeam top - WAY CUTE!!) This shirt is super lightweight, dries quickly, covers up the chest area that can get so much sun while out on a sunny day, and doesn't chafe. I'm 5'2" and fairly petite. I bought a size 2 and it fits perfectly. I prefer this shirt over all of my Run Swiftly tops. The only drawback is that after washing it a few times the white seems to be slowly getting a little dingy (something that I also noticed with the white Pace Setter skirt). All in all, I LOVE this top and would buy it in every color if there were more to choose from.

I've worn this shirt (black) so much and love the way it keeps me cool and wicks the sweat out. It also dries very quickly after washing so I can wear it again!
