Gorgeous. Shouldn't have bought a size up, my bad!
Wow! So glad I came across this in the store. Like other reviewers, I wasn't enticed by the pictures (impression: sloppy, dowdy, not sleek as a commute shirt might have you think). Never gave it a second thought.
In person - this shirt is silky, light and sexy. Your favorite Swift fabric rendered dressy! What could be better? And the unique "hi-lo" hems are very fashion-forward, something I might see from a downtown NYC designer (at $400 a pop). This feature is exactly what I would love on _all_ my shirts - a curved hem to tuck in, and a squared-off, edgy back that hovers over body-conscious pants.
The only thing is my normal size wasn't available, and (loved this so much I couldn't leave without it) I bought the next size up, 6. The shirt is shaped with darts, and they pucker a bit on me because as a 4 I don't fill out this 6, given the loose cut. :( I would love a 4 but having called around, it just doesn't seem like there are any more Urbanite Shirts in stores. Would anyone like my 6?

I was hesitant about this shirt cause it looks baggy on the model. But I love the urbanite pants so I took a chance and ordered a size 8. I'm 36C and normally a 8 or 10 in lulu tops. The 8 fits great, I live the way the material hangs it really is a great shirt.

Love This Shirt!!!!
I was hesitant buying this shirt but got home washed it and yes it came out a little wrinkled so I put it on a hanger to iron when dry... IT was perfect when dry... I didn't have to iron it at all! I fits perfectly... I got so many compliments when wearing it on the street from people I was surprised. I am ordering a second one... Please make this in different colors... I haven't purchased a shirt that washes and dries this nicely EVER! I have to buy a lot of shirts and this one is now my favorite.

I gave a try..but NO to this shirt
I have been lulumania for last 10 years.
Dropping $$$$ on LULU stuff... as long as LULU Quality is there.
This shirts looked GREAT, sounded GREAT. Got it in mail with the Urban Pants BLACK sz4( which did not get up to my thigh..and Usually I am lulu 2/4---Also fabric is not that.... great...good stretch but cheep feeling)
The Shirts.... feel very polyester...lots of statics. The front design looked like BIB on me...and it does wrinkled.
The PRICE and Quality....does not MATCH.
I am returning it....I LOVE TO SEE --- OLD LULU QUALITY without insane PRICE hike ~~~

Perfect : Stylish and Practical!!
I bike to work every morning? Usually I change clothes but not with this shirt? Love the details of this shirt.
It is TTS ( I am a size 6 in every LLL top .) I am 5.7 and approx. 140lbs. It just fits perfectly. If you need a ?chemise? from every day (from bicycle to work) ? AND to look good at work ? this one is the best!!!

I am a male and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE LULULEMON FEMALE LINE. I satisfy my way of dressing and feeling powerful in clothes. Especially with tops like these that are androgynous/unisex in my opinion. The only problem is they dont make tops like these that are in size 14. I know there is not a market for unisex in your store yet, but think about how certain products could either fit the larger woman in size 14 or even the male dancer, who often frequents your store. Shirts like these, and even CRB's are what some men are attracted to. The male clothes tend to be WAY TOO BOXY and LACK COLOUR, DESIGN, AND PASSION like the women's line. The men get colour in shirts (well that is easy) but what about some of the pants, what about trimming in those pants, or waist bands, or even what about small cool things like drawstrings being a hyper colour, or a atonal colour? The men tend to only get shorts and shirts in colour, but nothing else. If I was part of your review team, design prototype control group, or even a critique team, I could give you elements of both function and fashion. I am a dancer and I LOVE when both worlds collide in the men's wear. It doesnt happen too often, but when it does, I BUY LIKE CRAZY.

Wanted to like this shirt
I REALLY wanted to like this shirt. The fabric is terrific, but the shirt is all wrong. Felt weird and constricted in the shoulders and I have narrow shoulders. Buttons were in the wrong places so the front gaped a bit. I liked the tapered shirt tail in the front and they should have done the back the same way -- back of the shirt was oddly boxy and awkward.

Great idea, didn't work for me
I live in my summer fave, the Lululemon golf shirt (sleeveless). I had hoped this shirt would be a great fall swap for my summer go-to.
Me: 5'3", 128lbs., 32ddd (almost always a size 6 in LLL, or an 8 if trim fitting/slim jackets)
So, this is truly a fabulous feeling fabric against your skin with promises of no wrinkles and breathability. The collar is dressy enough, yet not restrictive and the side details are interesting when left untucked (really can't tuck this in, and I don't think it's meant to be, but perhaps on the next generation of something like this). I know many do not favor the curved hemmed shirts, but I actually adore that detail on this.
Where it went wrong for me was the fit. Granted, I do not have your average size chest, but the button front sleeveless shirt from summer has no pull or "busting out" in my size 6's. This one is definitely a size up for me for that reason, as well as the upper arms being quite snug. I do have muscular upper arms from lifting weights, so please take that into consideration. Also, with the front being curved (love!) and the back being squared off (not good), my backside ended up looking much wider than it actually is (when paired with WU or the new Urbanite pants, which I had hoped to pair this with (as pictured). Going up a size would be too much fabric and end up losing shape in the waist.
Sadly, this one is going back, BUT - hurray to LLL for bringing on more daily/travel/double-duty pieces that can be incorporated into everyday wear as well. For me, that's been one of the missing pieces and I'm so happy to see what comes out in the future along these lines (no wrinkle, multi-use/layer pieces).
