too boxy for my body type
I am lululemon size 6 in tops/bottoms normally. I am 5'8", 128 lbs, tall with long torso, not curvy at all. The size 6 is way too big, so I went down one size to 4.
While the 4 works, it's just okay on me. I have a long torso, so the cropped boxy shape does nothing for me, no matter what bottom pants I tried to match it with. I really wanted to love this top because I love the idea of showing off my bra. But alas it is not for every body shape. I ended up getting the v-neck sport tee in solid black instead and it is a beautiful alternative. Also, the meesh tee is probably less practical for working out (even though you could) and it's great for going out which is what I would have worn it for if it fit me.

Super flattering and stylish top!
I am 5'10" and the top looks great on tall gals and ITS NOT TOO SHORT. It's a cropped top and I wear it with casual front pleated pants or black skinny jeans. I dress it up or down and have received sooooo many compliments on it (I have it in black and white) . I also feel it's reasonably priced for $54 . No complaints here whatsoever . It's a lovely addition to the lulu line and it washes well....let it hang to dry and no wrinkles.

I am 5'2" and got this top in a size 6-in the black-wore my energy bra under it-had so many compliments from people the day I wore it-people I did not even know commented on it! So it does work very well for us short lulu ladies!!!!! I went back the next day and got the white/black one-have not worn it yet, but love it as much as the black one!!!

I don't usually write reviews because I feel it's my opinion and who cares. But I do like to read them. Let me start by saying that I ordered this top in the solid black and I absolutely Love it. Yes, it is boxy but it looks freaking adorable. After all the negative reviews that Lulu has been getting lately, all I can say, I only wish I felt that way too. Do you know how much money I could save. Seriously, everything I order, I love. I can't believe the negative comments that this little top has gotten. OMG, I LOVE IT. I ordered this top to wear at a black and white affair the end of August and can't wait to wear it. Lulu, please make this top in solid white. If no one else wants it just make it for me. You have my size and credit card info. I will be wearing this top with the Lab Night Tights and the Energy Bra in white. Can't wait.

Way too short.
This top is boxy, wide and short, not flattering on any body shape in my opinion. It's going back. Sad, why can't you guys get that we don't want short wide tops?

I was really excited to receive this top because I like the edgier clothing Lulu has been trying recently, which makes me all the more disappointed.
Fabric: The mesh in the white color looks kind of cheap and does not have a nice drape. The material is so stiff that it keeps a rigid shape instead of hanging nicely on the body and since it so much stiffer that the bottom part of the top, it also prevents the bottom from draping well.
Cut: The proportions are off on this top. I was expecting the white part to be shorter so that it would not go too far below my bra line and for the black part to be longer and hit to more mid butt. Upon examining the picture more closely, this is how it looks, but it didn't work for me.
Fit: I wear between a 4 and a 6 in tops. I got this in the 4 and it was plenty roomy, but too short.
