Run: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Crew
Perfect SS Crew Workout Shirt!
My obsession with LLL's swiftly shirts started with the heathered medium gray scoop neck so I ordered this one in space dye heathered purple fog as soon as it debuted online.
Great shirt! Color, fit, quality and style are spot on. I'm petite and busty and a size 2 fits like it was tailored for me by a haberdasher. The fabric is super soft, even more so than the other swiftlys in my closet. It's done a great job with wicking sweat away and looks amazing transitioning from errands to workout to more errands.
I haven't had any issues with snags. Not sure what is up with some people experiencing it, but I suspect they aren't giving this fabric the TLC it needs. I wash mine inside out in cold and hang dry. I also avoid wearing jewelry while wearing this top and stay away from any sort of workout where accessories, like a barre bar comes in contact with it. I also have meticulously short nails so maybe that's the formula? Ladies, this fabric is the Louboutin of workout shirts. Figure out how to take care of it or just get something else.

I was so excited to get this shirt back in July in a light summer mint color. But after only wearing it 5-6 times for long runs (6+ miles), I noticed weird sweat stains under the arms and in the lower back area. I don't sweat heavily and use all natural deodorant, so I was extra surprised when the shirt came out of the wash (always cold water, like fabric, gentle cycle, hang dry) with permanent discoloration in those areas. After a few more wears on longer runs, the discoloration (a dingy gray) is so noticeable that this shirt cannot be worn as a top layer anymore. The shirt looks old, cheap and ratty.
There is no reason a shirt of this cost make for fitness should become permanently discolored by someone who sweats a light/moderate amount. Shouldn't these shirts/colors be tested by people who sweat? Very disappointed.
For sizing: I usually wear a 2 in all bottoms and a 2 in tops (but I can get away with a 4 in tops). Swiftly 4 tanks are a little too loose on me, but a 4 in this top fit like a glove.

Bumbleberry is maroon
I order the bumbleberry which looks like dark pink/rose color on 2 computers, an ipad and an iphone. What I received was a maroon shirt, so I was very disappointed.

Thank you Lulu...finally you made a short sleeve top that fits me and does not look like I am wearing a bag. I purchased the Heathered Berry color which is beautiful in size 2 and love everything about it. I am very petite w/small chest and it fits great.

Particular color snags too easy
I love Lululemon items, the fit and design are always thoughtful. I have this shirt in two colors. The coral one has held up well and I love it. However, the "tempo stripe white black" color snags very easy. With most of these shirts you can't tell, but every little pull on this shirt takes the black thread out leaving a blank white spot in the fabric. I'm sad because I like the company so much, but I can't dryclean and hand wash my workout clothes. I need them to hold up to my workouts.

A little different
This is my 8th purchase in the Run Swiftly series. I have two of the other short sleeve crew necks, two long sleeve crew necks, a V-neck (which I'm not fond of) and two of the tanks. I love this newer crew neck version. If I'm not mistaken, I think the sleeves are a tiny bit shorter than the other crew versions? I bought the heathered lullaby and it's a gorgeous color! Lulu-- PLEASE make a muscle tank (sleeveless) version of the crew neck. I think it would be an awesome addition to the Run Swiftly family. For reference, I bought the size 6 and it fits like the other Run Swiftlys. I am 5'4, 114 lbs.
