Runner Up Short Sleeve
This shirt is perfect for the gym. It is cool, the fit is very flattering, and I wish Lulu would make a bunch more in other colors and prints. I have the black and the grey one, and love them both. It's always hard to find good short sleeve shirts, where the sleeves are a good length - this one is a winner all around!

Love this Shirt!!!
This shirt is fabulous! I love the fit, material and length! However, it is more low cut than picture appears, so be prepared to wear a sports bra with it! One of my new favorites from Lulu! I just want more colors!!

Pic of shirt is misleading
The shirt is really cute. I'm a size 6 in Lululemon clothes so it fits great. The v-neck is really low so it only looks cute with a black sports bra underneath. The pic looks like it's not low cut. That is my only complaint. Aside from that, it is slimming, looks great, and super trendy looking. I'm 5'6" 132 lbs and size 6 in top and bottom works great for me.

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!!!
