I read many reviews on these shirts before buying and almost didn't as a result so I thought I should include my positive review after buying.
Do these easily snag? YES. Does it matter if you are only wearing them to work out? NOT REALLY (in my opinion). Yes, we all want to look as good as possible while working out (or we might not pay extra for Lululemon) but the benefits outweigh the snagging issue. It literally feels like you are not wearing anything when you wear this shirt. It's super soft and light and I'm a heavy sweater and it doesn't feel like you are sweating inside the shirt (it does feel like you are sweating everywhere else). Anyway after wearing it for one run, I went back and bought another. Perfect for the Spring/Summer transition.

I have two short sleeve and two long sleeve Swiftly Tech tops and the complaint is the same. It's just too fragile. Love the color options, feels comfortable on my body, but won't buy again. This fabric snags so easily no matter how careful I am. It's just not worth it for something that snags like this. I brushed my hand against the fabric and it snagged. Not for me.

swiftly tech short sleeve
I own 3 of these short sleeve shirts and 2 long sleeve (same material) I love them, love the way they fit and feel. But every single one of them have a snag. I just bought one yesterday, wore it today and my necklace snagged it and now its ruined :( Im getting frustrated because I love these shirts!

I bought this shirt and returned it within the week. Loved the fit and look however it snagged very easily. I have 2 dogs and they jump up alot. The shirt snagged it's own tag when i got it out of the bag. Wish the material was more durable.

A bit disappointed
I already have 3 of these shirts and I wear them for everything! I always buy them in store after trying them on. This time I decided to buy one to go with some new crops online, and unfortunately the colour did not look anything like the picture. It was more of a neon highlighter pink than a nice bright coral/pink. I will definitely still wear it, but I was a tad disappointed when it arrived. The material is also much different than my other swiftly's, much more stretch. We will see how it holds up in comparison.

The best t-shirts ever!
I love these shirts so much that I am slowly starting a collection! The fabric is breathable and doesn't absorb sweat as much as regular cotton shirts. Love that the fabric conforms to your shape and holds everything in. The ONLY thing I would change is the length but since any flat seamed article of clothing can be hemmed free I wouldn't consider it a product flaw.

Great shirt until the tough mudder.....
I absolutely loved my run swiftly short sleeve and when it came time to decide what to wear to the tough mudder it was an easy decision to make, I would wear my lulu shirt because it had never steered me wrong. There was no coming up, no chaffing, felt great until I took it off at the finish line and I noticed a giant hole in the back. What can I say? I wore a 60 dollar shirt to a mud run. The only thing is that I wished it didn't have a hole in it because I really did like the shirt.

A Great Little Shirt
I own 3 of these and I mostly use them for the gym or running. For reference, I'm 5'3", 105 lbs and a 34B with broader shoulders for my frame. I normally wear a size 4 in lulu tanks, a size 6 in the bras and I purchased a size 6 in the Swiftly tees. In street clothes, I typically wear a size 2. This top is still fitted but not tight, a little looser on me than on the model. I prefer things not to fit tight across my torso.
As for performance, the material is lightweight and wicks away sweat. The top tends to ride up a little when I run but that's probably because I size up. The material is a little delicate and I am afraid I will accidentally snag it but so far, so good.

Breaths well and is comfy
Love this shirt. It is long enough and stays in place. Feels great to the touch and wears well.

Light as a feather
This one is a nice review, I promise, sort of. Like I had mentioned in my previous review of the energy bra, I have been trying out some of this company's core items. I'm just going to come out and say this, THIS SHIRT SNAGS, and quite easily I may add.
So this may not be the best way to start a review, but I'd really like to point out the positives of this shirt. I'm just going repeat two of their main highlights right off the bat: it keeps sweat from gettin' stinky, and the seamless construction keeps chaffing at bay. This shirt is seriously light, and it feels very comfortable when you get down right sweaty. The longest run I've done in this shirt is a 10 mile run, and when I was done, it was still very soft, and even though it was sweaty, it was still pretty much weightless. The different material weave has been strategically been placed in the high sweat zones, which really pulls the sweat away, and helps you keep cool. This shirt loose fitting as it is described, but if you really want to go for that fitted look, then definitely size down, nothin wrong with that, I'm sure it'll perform just as well. This shirt does run a bit longer than the hip area, but that's because I'm slightly shorter than average height (I'm 5'4''). As I said before, there are snags, however they are on the inside. The first time this shirt got washed, there was one snag, the second, third, fourth, and fifth time, no new snags. This last time, two new snags. They are small, and the first one has not gotten any worse, however I do worry about the future of this shirt. I think that with these types of shirts, since they are designed for run, they are going to stray strictly for running.
I really do enjoy the mesh vents, which is where the snags are, so if you're listening Lulu, make some of the material slightly there tighter, maybe that will get rid of the snagging issues, idk. This shirt needs a little work.
BTW, it should be wine, not chocolate, you know what I'm talking about. ;)
