Run: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve
Go To Shirt
This is one of my favourite shirts no matter what I'm doing where I'm at the gym, hiking or grabbing milk. The shirt keeps you cool and is super comfy. This is a must have for all fitness levels or sport enthusiasts.
You have to be a little more careful when wearing because it can snag but is very durable for weight and material.

I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed
This is like when your parents in high school would say, I'm not mad- I'm just disappointed.
I am such a huge lululemon fan. I have been a part of the R & D team since I got certified as a personal trainer- quite a few years back - and really before the popularity boom.
My issues with this shirt are 2-fold. #1 - As quite a few of the other reviews have stated- this shirt SNAGS on everything. I leaned against a concrete wall- and ended up with a huge pull on the front part of the shirt. Really? This is completely unacceptable... If your fabrics can't hold up to minor wear- how can you expect them to perform trail running, or doing burpees? #2 - Discoloration - I am well versed in the care of lululemon clothing- I am particularly careful washing each piece by hand, but my shirt went from a beautiful vibrant yellow - to a very gross greyish-old banana color after less than 3 wears...
If I am going to continue to support Lululemon, I would love to hear feedback on what your take is on why this happened, and how we can write this wrong.... But for now, your grounded!

I was so exited when i purchased the bright pink, lower scoop neck version of this shirt, as it was my first silverscent product! however, after having it for only two weeks it snagged and created a fairly good size hole on the chest which got worse after washing. I brought that shirt in only 6 days ago and exchanged it for this higher scoop neck style as my store didn't have the original one in stock :( anyways after only having this shirt for 6 days and wearing it twice it has snagged several times with two threads sticking out! i can assume these will turn into holes the same as the other.. I'm sad to say that these shirts just aren't worth the price. when i'm paying about $65 after taxes for a shirt i expect them to last. Although i love the softness, comfort, fit, and anti-stink benefits this product gives, it just isn't worth the money if it's going to have holes after a month.

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. You can find better quality at a much lower price. This has snagged and I don't know how it snagged since it was bought in the store and brought home. The tag is still on! Material feels wonderful but it's not worth the money. Not for something that has snagged without being worn once. I can only imagine what's going to happen in the wash.

Comfortable but snags
I love the way this shirt fits, feels, looks, performs as I do all my many other lulu items but I bought this one on recommendation of a friend. First time I wore it it snagged twice. One very larger snag too. So really disappointed with it especially after the price. Don't think I'll be buying this one again.
This shirt snagged with just my hand, nothing else

Not worth the money.
Pros: Super soft.
Cons: Too long. It snags way too easily. And this is me not using equipment...this is just my hands/fingers brushing up against the fabric. Disappointed for the amount of money I paid.

This is my all time favourite shirt. I am 5'7 and weigh about 135 and the size 8 fits perfect. I have a little bit of a muffin top and this shirt is still very flattering on me. I've had it for over two months and have encountered no problems with it. It is very easy for me to take care of it. Just an overall great shirt!

Not worth the $
I bought this shirt on the advice of a friend who is also a runner and has several of them. While the fabric is soft and the shirt is comfortable, when I wear it with my fuel belt the fabric picks all along the belt, making the shirt looks worn and old (I've only had it a month). I will return to wearing my $10 Joe cotton yoga shirts for running.

Love, but gentle care
I have to say that I LOVE LuLu so I was very excited to get this shirt as a birthday gift...and 5 more shortly after because the fit is GREAT. However gentle care has to be taken with this one as it snags VERY easily. Probably not the most ideal shirt for a mother of 2 under 3 years old because it is not worn just for workouts. I do love the shirts but probably won't justify ordering another with how easily they snag and the cost.

Very light-weight, comfy Run T-Shirt
When it comes to lulu, I am pretty picky about the normal things you can buy there--pants and tops. There are a lot of cheaper, yet decent quality options out there. I pretty much drool over everything, but like to be reasonable.
I decided to give this T-shirt a shot. I am 5' 1", currently 120 pounds. I have an hour-glass shape, with my hips a size up from my waist. I also tend to sweat more than an average person, and sometimes I even avoid t-shirts for working out because of this.
Function wise: This shirt works awesome. I have only been using it around a week, but I love the very light-weight material, and mesh areas to increase air-flow. The material isn't scratchy, and feels very comfortable on a run.
Appearance: I love the way that the shape of the mesh areas and lines of the shirt give it more structure to the look, which makes it look more flattering on you than some other t-shirts. I also like the lack of seems--again looks nice.
Watch out, hips: This shirt is long, going over the hips. I knew this just by looking at it, and I also tried it on in the store before purchasing; I'm OK with it. It rides up a ton while running, the impact of hitting the ground causing it to do so. This feels slightly annoying to a degree, but not enough to not like the shirt. I believe that's a personal preference. The shirt feels very good while running, so it doesn't bother me. This also is affected the less dis-proportioned you are. Right now at 120 the difference affects my clothes more, but I have been down to 110 before and it's significantly better--I feel like the shirt will fit much better at that weight for me (fingers crossed).
Care: I have read in the past that swiftly material can be hard to care for; that it can pull easily and other things. Having been warned ahead of time, I plan on trying to take EXTRA good care of this shirt so I don't go through a similar experience. Will update if anything happens.
Odds and Ends: As always, the little extra details Lulu does are adorable. I love the sayings on the inside hem! "I Run For Chocolate!" Ah---oh so true.
