Run: Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve Scoop
I honestly don't know why there are so many bad reviews. I adore this top. My regular size 6 works perfectly (I'm 5'4" and 130lbs). I have washed it multiple times and have never had a problem. The wicking properties are wonderful, and the design is beautiful too. Overall, I definitely recommend this top.

Pulls all over after one gentle washing. The lulu quality has gone downhill in a big way.

I have lots of Run: Swiftly Techs in long and short sleeve, crew neck but only one scoop neck. I would like to buy more but the colour selection is horrible. Please make the scoop in more fun colours.
I wear my tops a lot and have never had any issues with the fabric except I have to be careful when wearing a seatbelt that it doesn't snag it. The scoop neck has a shorter sleeve which I really like.
I always size up so it is not too tight and will cover my rear when it gets cold!

terribly delicate.. but there's a silver lining.
Let me start with the cons, first:
I had a long sleeve in this material and after having it separate at the markings on the sleeves, I have been handling my short sleeves very carefully.
I bought this shirt in heathered clear mint on WMTM and within 5 weeks, after two wears and washes, a hole was developing on the side after not having been snagged.
Now, with the pros:
This fabric is great for running. It is lightweight, breathable and it wicks away moisture like nobody's business. It also dries very quickly, too.
Despite the delicate fabric, I'm very happy to say that lululemon stood behind their product and offered me store credit for the full amount on both the long sleeve and the short sleeve, even though I didn't produce a receipt for the long sleeve and I purchased the short sleeve on mark down. So ladies, if you have issues, try and take it back/ send it back before leaving your reviews here. At the very least, call the GEC and see what your options are. Although I'm bummed about losing out on the colours, I'm glad there was at least an alternative that allowed me to get a new shirt in the end.
You've been warned, be VERY careful with this fabric, it IS extremely delicate. If you're not up for the task of caring for it, this shirt is definitely not for you. For size reference I'm 5'4, 120 lbs and I wear either a size 4 for a slim fit, 6 for a more relaxed fit.

pulls very easy
I LOVE this top as far as the lightweight material. However, after only washing one time (in a laundry bag for delicates) this top came out full of pulls!!!! I am SO upset. This would be by far my favorite top however, it is now ruined. That was a quick $58 in the drain! Company needs to work better on customer service and return policy. Athleta lets you return ALL merchandise.

I own several swiftly's; tanks, short-sleeves and long-sleeves. I love them all. They are so amazingly comfortable to exercise in and they absorb sweat very well. I have worn these to the gym and on quite a few 10+ km hikes. They hold up really well, stay dry and do not smell at the end of the day. I personally do not like my tops to be a super tight fit, so order one size up from my usual size in NLT and CRBs.

I was so excited to buy this shirt, and I wore it for about 45 min, and two massive snags on NOTHING! Just from wearing it! I live in lululemon and this is the first shirt (which I bought in two colours) that I'm unhappy with. I went grocery shopping and the two snags are across my bust. So frustrating!

Best T-shirt I own yet!
The most comfortable, form fitting yet not too tight T-shirt I own so far!
This feminine workout t-shirt fits close to the skin, but doesn't prevent a lot of active movements!!
Bought my usual size 6, and I love the no seams, length and comfortable breathable fabric!
I'll be looking at purchasing the long sleeve very sooooon.

not so swift?
while i'm a fan of most lulu products, i was really disappointed by the quality of this swiftly shirt. after one wear, i noticed a hole in the front of the shirt. i treat all of my lululemon clothing with care and don't know how this could have happened. this is very upsetting to me since it was an expensive shirt.

material needs reconsideration
I found this shirt to be stylish and quite comfortable. The material is very breathable. Unfortunately, I've only been able to wear the shirt once because I found a small hole in the front of the shirt after wearing it running for an hour. I understand this material is delicate but I am not very impressed that it snagged so easily in such a short amount of time. The quality is lacking and this material is not ideal for the purpose. Had I known the material was so easily damaged, I would not have purchased this item.
