Run: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Crew
I now own 3 of these...
What a great shirt! It is perfect for the gym, and I look forward to wearing it running once the weather warms up. Cute, flattering, and comfortable. I have it in three colors now. Thanks, Lulu!

Bought my very first swiftly tech crew. On my first wash, the top bleed like nobody business. After hanging out to dry i notice discolouration all over. Patches of uneven colour. What did i do wrong. .i wash with cold water n some soap... really like the design. But am afraid to buy them again...

the ONLY shirt I wear!
I do a mix of cross fit and martial arts, so I need a shirt that won't ride up or expose me when I drop for push ups. This shirt is long enough to cover my tummy and the material clings, so it doesn't show all the guys in the gym what I have underneath. ;) I work up a major sweat, but it does not show like a regular tee does. I also feel like I sweat less in this than other materials - for instance, dry fit means I sweat like a hot mess. I have tried other brands and materials, but none has worked as well. I only buy this tee in all the colors and that's that!

Old ones were better....
Have several of the swiftly tech shirts in a variety of styles. The newer versions purchased recently are lighter weight & stink... as in smell. The older models, 3 years ago, where much nicer & never smelled, nor did you have to worry about snagging them. After talking to someone who used to work retail for lulu, the smelliness (musty) was confirmed.

"That's just how this fabric is"
I had owned 3 of these tops, and now I'm down to 1. I have had two of them spontaneously rip and snag during the delicate, hand wash cycle of my washing machine. I follow all of the lulu instructions and treated these items way too carefully for what the price is. I took them tomy local store and explained to the cashier that this should not be happening to an almost new shirt. Her response was, "well you need to wash all of your lulu stuff together." I kindly told her that I do, in fact, only wash lulu with lulu, and even separate the cotton from the rule, etc. her response was, "Well, the fabric snags easily and that's how the fabric is. It's going to snag. I'll return it this time, but we won't take this back if it happens again." For as expensive as this top is, I shouldn't have to treat it like it's made of gold. These shirts are made for RUNNING- wouldn't you think they need to be durable? Won't be back to my store, and I'm trying to cut myself off from this brand.

I live in Dubai and whenever I am in the US, I go to LL to buy workout wear. I have purchased this same shirt over 3 years ago and it is still in good condition.
In November, I purchased the same shirt in coral at your King of Prussia store and after only a few washings (in cold water and by hand), it is totally stretched out.
I would like to be able to return it but it is now outside of the return period. Please advise.

I bought this shirt 2 weeks ago and was so happy to wear it for the first time. I was very disappointed when I noticed a hole in the front after only three wears. I love lululemon and think they have great stuff, but was disappointed by this item.

Love me some Swiftly!
That's be real - I have dozens of Swiftly's (short sleeve, long sleeve, tanks)... Yes you have to be careful with them, but they're worth it. I can take a 6 for a more fitted look, but typically stick with an 8 because I love to run in these and the 8 doesn't ride up (must have the 8 in long sleeve without exception b/c I have muscular arms).
BOOM JUICE rocks!!

Nice material, and I love the color, but I took this out on one run and the top rode up the entire time. So awful and annoying. I was constantly pulling it back down or trying to clip my iPod to weigh it down.
Since the tags were off, I tried to make the best of it and wore it next to a weights class at my gym. Same problem. Won't stay down, and is my normal Lulu size (6). I'm so disappointed. I wanted this shirt forever, finally took the plunge, and I can't believe it rides up like it does. It just doesn't stay in place and that's why I wanted it. If you're looking for a workout shirt that stays in place during running, weights, athletic conditioning, this is not for you unfortunately.
