Good To Go Tee
New Favorite Versatile Top!
Absolutely love this shirt! Even though I had to wait over a week for it to come in the mail, it came just in time for me to wear it with a leather skirt to an art show opening, and it was perfect. The swim material makes a surprisingly good shirt that stretches and flows very nicely. I went with my usual size 6, and it fits well over my wider shoulders. I got the plush petal black ghost print and was happy to see that the material is entirely coated with the print rather than showing a plain interior fabric when stretched. Hand washed it and saw no color bleeding.
Works nicely for yoga as well - wore it as a layer with a crb and was very happy with it. Wanting to wear it every day!

Cute simple shirt
This is a cute, simple shirt that I would love to see in staple colors, like black. I paired the "plush petal black ghost" color with the black mesh skirt and the high-waisted skirt and shorter top looked great together.
Cut: This shirt has a boxy cut and is a little on the short side. The sleeves are pretty wide and look even wider when you first put it on (due to being pressed in that position when shipped) but once the sleeves relax, the top looks better.
Fabric: The fabric is the swim material, which I like. In this top, the material is a little stiff, so it doesn't skim the body. I like the boxy fit, but it might not be for everyone. I like the printed version and with the boxy cut, the shirt does have an "alternative" feel to it.
Fit: I am usually between a 4 and a 6 is tops. I got a 4 in this and it's roomy.

Nice top and layers well
I just bought this top in the print style from the store. It actually looks better on.... than on the hanger! I bought it to wear with a long black Lulu skirt I bought last month. Can be worn on its own or on cooler days I tried it on with a light black merino wool top I had with long sleeves and it looks quite dressy also! My only beef is the price. A little steep as I was going to buy the Dhyanna top but I thought for the extra money it will look more dressy and function just as well. The material is soft and stretchy. I usually buy my tops in a size 8 but I went down a size to a 6 and would highly recommend that if you plan on buying it. I gave this top a 4 star as the price was a little steep but like most Lulu stuff I have, I'm sure it will last a few good years if properly washed and hung to dry.

Comfortable in hot desert summer
This top is loose fit, but I consider it to fit just right as a loose fitting design. The shoulder fits just right, and I feel very cool and comfortable under the hot sun. I really like the swim fabric for the hot summer here in Las Vegas. The length is also good for my short torso as well. I am sure it would be short for longer torso.
I usually wear size 4 for swiftly tech (size 4 swiftly tech is tight fitting on me). And I bought size 4 for this as well. I wouldn't wish to go down to size 2 (and they don't have size 2 for this anyway) because I know it wouldn't fit my shoulder well. I wouldn't size down to make this meant to be loose fitting top to look like tighter fitting.
I wish there would be more color coming out for this, and I wish they would build the UPF sunscreen feature in this top as well in the future.
I haven't put it into the washer yet so I don't know if there is any color bleeding.
