Runner Up Short Sleeve
Surprise hit! Much better than I expected
I typically steer clear of items that are more "flash-in-the-pan". Because of the way new items are pumped out every week, I'd rather opt for the ones that are especially well-cut, with strong, distinctive (but not "loud") colorways. So imagine my surprise when I tried the Runner Up Short Sleeve...
In the summer, a high-wick top is crucial - being someone who sweats just from being in contact with a chair (!) - this shirt is super light. It's cut not tight, but still follows the form unlike other summer workout shirts. You get the body-contour appeal from the likes of Swiftly tops, without a lot of cling.
The deep V is exceptionally attractive - and I don't really like v-necks usually (I think the original Swiftly neckline looks very flattering, makes your neck longer and more elegant vs. the new Crew or the Scoop). On me (34C), the neckline does not expose my bra, and I can happily wear this by itself. The BF goes crazy seeing this shirt.
The grey color goes universally with every color bottom, and is visually interesting compared with other colorways minus graphics.
I don't really need the extra fabric in back, so that's about my only complaint.

most amazing Lulu top yet
I have been looking at this top all summer in stores but at $10 more than the swiftly short sleeve and with writing on the front I couldn't justify it. I recently found it in store marked down so I took it into the fitting room with some other items. I can't believe how amazing this top really is. I wish I had tried it on sooner, it is worth $10 more than a swiftly. It is lighter feeling than a swiftly and the shaping and back detail make it dramatically more form flattering and feminine than a swiftly. Please Lulu, make this in more colors with no writing and PLEASE make it in a long sleeve for cooler weather, I would buy multiples for wear on their own and for layering!!

Love the Aquamarine
I have this top in the aquamarine color and love it. The Silverescent fabric is wonderful in the heat and the the back detail is super feminine. Have received many compliments on the top, especially about the back detail, and I would buy more colors if they did not have the screenprints on the front.

Not what I thought it would be !
As a big time Lulu buyer this is my first disappointment. This tee looks and feels amazing but did not breathe well AT ALL! It made for a non enjoyable workout and made me appreciate my other Lulu tops that are breathable!

As soon as I put this shirt on, I knew I would be buying it. The fit is very flattering, and the fabric is comfortable and breathable.
I most often wear this tee to soccer practice, so it does spend time in my gym bag with my sweaty gear, and, while not daisy fresh, it does smell a lot cleaner than some of the other items in my bag.
The shirt is quite low-cut, which is flattering on me, as I don't have much of a chest, but I do have to make sure I'm wearing the correct sports bra if I wear this shirt for certain kinds of workouts, lest a round of burpees result in a wardrobe malfunction. The fit of this tee is slim without being tight to the body, but the fabric itself is somewhat clingy.
I bought this shirt in the grey because, unlike some of the other reviewers, I don't mind the writing, and I found the shirt kind of boring and plain without it.

I really like the fit of this shirt. Great with shorts or crops. Only downfall is the material easily snags. Im surprised these shirts are not sold out.

This shirt is officially becoming a staple in my closet. The ruching on the back adds a feminine touch that I don't normally get on athletic shirts. It is the perfect length, as sometimes when I wear shirts with this particular cut at the bottom they look awkward, however this one does not. I am a size 4 in this shirt, as well as in the Swiftly Tech t-shirts, however in the ST I am between a 4 and 6, and this shirt I am definitely a 4. One thing I didn't like about the shirt was the words, which is why I bought the mint one. Please make more colours without writing!!!

Love the shirt, but don't like the writing
This is the perfect running shirt - cool, lightweight, feminine. I wanted to get the shirt in black, but the writing is not my style at all. Writing makes me think of NIKE brand at TJMaxx.

Perfect Running Shirt
Love this t-shirt, perfect for running. The fabric doesn't chafe, breathes well, and doesn't pick up any odor. It wicks away sweat very well. I've already tested it on a few long, hot, hilly runs. I'm 5'2", 115lbs, a 32C and I got a 4 because I like my running shirts to be fitted but not tight. The vneck is rather deep, you can see my sports bra, but I like it that way. It keeps me cool and makes it easy to slip the shirt off when you're sweaty. Very flattering.
I got the blue and would instantly buy more if there were more colors without writing!!!!
