Lab Edge Tee
love! get both colors!
i love this top. it's long but that's good. i either tie it or i do a half tuck in front. i love the sheer fabric b/c you can see the bra underneath. i wear it w/ the energy bra i think is the name - the one w/ tons of straps in the back. the white one looks really cute w/ the new denim-like leggings and the black one i wear w/ the breathe easy marble print pant. done&done. keep making these! lululemon is back!

Firstly, I agree with the other reviews that the seriously light luon feels fragile and perhaps a little cheap. However, the design more that overcompensates for that weakness.
Cut: I love the triangular mesh inserts at the front and back of the top. The long triangle on the front is slimming and eye catching. It has a very modern, edgy design that brings interest to what would otherwise look like a muscle tee. I say "muscle tee" because the shoulders are cut wide. The top is longer, almost tunic length, which is flattering on everyone and a length that I absolutely adore.
Fit: I normally wear a 4 or 6 in lulu tops and decided to go with a 4 in this top. Even the 4 is baggy, so I could imagine that if you are very petite, the 4 would be too big.
Fabric: As mentioned in many of the reviews, the fabric is extremely lightweight which is good for warm weather, but does make me question whether or not the top will hold up. I have not washed it yet, so I can't say how it fares with a machine washing. Otherwise, the fabric and mesh have a nice drape

Another winner from the Lab
Love this long and loose tee. I'm going to allow this to be worn on the streets as a regular tee since it is so cute. I'm surprised at the negative reviews as I adore this style. 5 foot 6, 125 lbs and 4 is perfect fit.

Wanted to love it, but too big
I tried this on in store today in the smallest size, 4, and it was just way too big on. I thought it would look great with some jeans and heels to go out in after leaving the studio, but literally I was drowning in it. I think the concept was right with this top, but they should've made it a bit more fitted. I literally could pull at the arm pit area and it was a good 2 inches separation between the fabric and my underarm. So bummed because I wanted it to work.

Not as see-through as I'd hoped (!)
I liked this, I really did -
- It was long enough in the torso for 5'10" me.
- It draped well and looked flattering.
- The fabric felt cool and comfortable.
But, I wanted this as a layering tank, as in, I wanted some brightly colored CRBs or other tanks to peek out through the low-cut mesh insert in front. The mesh, however, is a lot more opaque in person than it looked like online. Instead of bright colors peeking through, it all just looked black. If I had my face right up against it, I could see color, but from more than a foot or so away, it just looked black. If that?s the look you want, you might like this tank, but I wanted something with more see-through mesh, so back this one went. Too bad - I liked everything else about it.

I received this top in black today and actually loved the incredibly soft fabric. It's so soft and the V is just low enough to show off a colorful sports bra. I wore it to a spin class and it was loose enough to have material to tie it up in the back during the ride, but untie and feel comfy to grocery shop after the ride was over. This is not a tight fitting shirt like other tanks, but fits more like a slim fitting t-shirt for days that you just want a little more room.

Try it in store
I don't have qualms with this shirt, mostly because I tried it on in store so I knew what I was getting. I bought it to go with the Meesh skirt for a casual outfit, not necessarily heading to the gym/spin, so I haven't tried it out there. The material is a bit thin for the price (hence the one star off), but I am a big fan of the design and how well it goes with the skirt. Mesh over the deep v cut is just right and shows just enough. It is definitely oversized - I am usually an 8 and had to get a 6 in this.

I wanted to like it but
the bottom is too loose. I got the smallest size, 4 and it fit fine except for the bottom which reminded me of a maternity top. Unlike the other reviewers, I'm OK with the fabric and I love the mesh cutout. It fit me well in the bust and shoulders. Ultimately I decided against it because of the excessively loose cut at the bottom.

I own a cream colored edge tee from the lab and was so excited to see these. The fabric is nothing like the one I bought at the lab when I was in Vancouver for SeaWheeze. A true disappointment.

Feels like cheap synthetic material
I purchased this top because I've enjoyed some of the other mesh items. When I received this in the mail its definitely roomy, which is fine, I'm okay with. But the material is so cheap. It feels and looks synthetic. You know when you buy a dress that has that synthetic built in slip inside? It feels like that material. I figured I'd give it a go and keep it but when the first time I wore it to the gym I got 3 snags on it. Too many problems with this for the price.
