Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Crew
Was skeptical, now converted
I have a run swiftly from years ago, and it is perfect. Every time I went to buy a new one, I was scared away by the ridiculous number of "these snag IMMEDIATELY" reviews. I was in my local store last week and fell in love with a olive greenish color (not online that I can find), so I put on my big girl pants and bought it. I love it. The fabric is soft and thick but oh so breathable. I have worn it on several runs without washing it (I know I know, I'm gross) and it doesn't smell AT ALL. It's a great addition to my running wardrobe, and I just ordered a long sleeve swiftly because I couldn't resist. If you are a sweaty beast like myself, this shirt is for you.

"No worries" Yoga top for larger chested women
I bought this top in several colors, since I didn't feel comfortable in some of the more revealing light to medium support tanks for my DDs. I'm 5'5" and 128# and bought the medium size. Even after a lot of forward bends, upward facing dogs and other possibly compromising positions for me in a tank, I felt very secure and comfortably modest in these short sleeve crews. And, I can wear my regular Victoria Secret bras with them and change clothes after yoga for work, with less hassle. Thanks, Lulu!

Bring back the old fit
So disappointed! I have two of these and they are my favorite tops of all time. Ordered two new ones and will send back. The fit has been re-designed and is much tighter and the armholes are so tight it is uncomfortable. Lululemon ruined such a good thing!

An Olfactory Irony
This "anti-stink" shirt has such a powerful chemical odor that I am unable to bear wearing it. I bought the heathered blue shirt a few days ago. I wore it to a spin class and was taken aback (and embarrassed) by what can only be described as a noxious odor emanating from the shirt. I took it home and washed it immediately, laying it flat to dry. My husband came into the room and asked, "What's the smell?" It was the shirt! I then hand-washed it. No change. I put it in my car this morning, intending to perhaps return it to the store after going to the gym and running a few errands. I've just gotten into my car, where the shirt has been sitting in a bag in the back seat for a few hours. The whole entire car reeks! What the heck? What's going on with this thing? Honestly, I hope these people take the thing back. I'll be so disappointed if I have to lost out on almost $60 for a garment I cannot even wear.
Let me be clear. This is not a body odor smell. As I said, the odor was noticeable as soon as I wore the shirt for the first time, before really kicking my workout into high gear. It is a non-human, chemical odor. This cannot be healthy or safe.

Best Workout Shirt Ever Made
I have fallen in love with this shirt.. I've already worn it for strength workout, playing volleyball, and an 8.5 mile hike. I've washed the shirt probably 4 times now and have no piling or pulling even though I've leaned against coarse rocks, splintering wood, and carried my backpack for hours. The heathered fresco blue is amazing and so flattering! The fabric is so soft and wicks sweat perfectly!
I am 5'8", 135lbs, 34B and a size 6 fits perfectly (I don't like the skin tight look for my workout clothes).

This shirt is so soft and wicks sweat away when I work out which is great. The problem I've experienced in both spin class and on runs is that it rides up so I constantly have to pull it down. I find this distracting and somewhat annoying. I'm petite, only 5'1 so the shirt is plenty long enough. I don't experience this with my long sleeve swiftlys so perhaps the short sleeve just isn't for me.

fabris pills after the first wash
I bought this top in white, and loved the feel and fit. However after the first wash it started pilling, and couple workouts and washes after it looks like an old cheap shirt. Not worth it.

I own three of these in different colors (gray, light blue, and now the heathered green) and love them for running and doing errands. It wicks away sweat fairly quickly; by the time I get home, three blocks away from the gym, I'm already dry! It doesn't ride up as I'm exercising, either. I haven't had any issues with snagging with any of my RS tops, short or long sleeved (my trick is to wash them on the cold setting and hang to dry, and they've washed and worn fairly well). I'm 5'2 110 lbs, and the 4 fits true to size in LLL tops.
My only problem with this shirt is the limited selection--it seems as though they make very few of each color in various sizes, because they sell out pretty quickly. If you see a color you like, don't hesitate! I'd love to see this top come out in other colors; maybe heathered blue again.

Like a Glove
I got this top in the tempo stripe black/white last summer. I normally wear size 10 in tanks with a built in bra, 8 in tanks without. For a tight fit on this shirt I sized down to a 6! The fabric feels like satin against the skin. The cut is a bit long in length. I do smell a little bit of a chemical scent when it heats up, but it is not over bearing. I wash with LLL stuff in a garment bag and so far no snags. I want bright colors now! :)
