Good if you're skinny, tall, and HIPLESS
Oh my == this is WAY longer than a Power Y. I usually have to have my Lulu's hemmed nearly 2" (I'm 5'5" size 8 top)...which is a waste on this one since part of the "cool" factor is the curved hem and detail on the bottom side. I would've had to cut all of that off at about 6" from the middle since I like my tops sitting at my hip, not wrapping over them. The LuLu seamstress could only do a straight hem. Too bad. So sad. I returned the top. The top is super cute on the tall skinny young hipless chicks though. I must be in denial :)

Awesome cut, too expensive
This is a basic tank and should have never cost as much as it did. I got a black one on sale for $29 and love it though! It is one of my favorites, including more involved pieces like the no limits tank. I am usually a 6 or 8 in tops and I loved the 6 in this - the torso was still roomy but the built in bra was really supportive. I am waiting for the plum to hit markdown of $29 and then I will scoop up another. It's truly a steal on wmtm. I would have gotten the rasp glo but I can't get past the ridiculous washing instructions and refuse to buy workout clothes that are so finicky. How can you tell us with a straight face that this workout tank is not to touch other clothes when wet?..? What about during a workout when I'm sweating? I'm supposed to take the shirt off to avoid bleeding. C'mon lulu, that's ridiculous. Make this in colors that don't bleed and I'll be all over it.

Reviews are right
The nearest Lululemon shop is 3 hours from me so I always use the reviews to decide whether to purchase items or not. The reviews for this top swung my decision and I decided to try it - I'm so pleased I did!
Seriously, this is a great top - the other reviewers are right in that the photos don't do it justice. It fits great and I love the scoop in the front & back. I'd love to see some more colours though....

Ugh - thick, scratchy and runs small
I wanted something I could wear to lift weights so I didn't need a lot of support. This would fit the bill if you like thick fabric, but I do not. I found the fabric to be thick and scratchy - not at all like any of the other wonderful fabrics that all my other lulu tops are made of. It seemed to run small on me. I have a size 6 in nearly every other style of lulu tops, but this 6 was WAY too small.

A workhorse and flattering
This is the Lulu I remember....a top that doesn't fade, pill or stretch out of shape with nearly three months of thrice a week wear. A top that is flattering, has great coverage without looking frumpy or boring. A top that fits well in all areas and doesn't ride up or twist around in different positions. Seriously, this is a great deal NOT on sale, so snap a couple up in the WMTM sale.
Other things I love about this top (which I got in both black and the burgundy color that was in my local store):
Shirttail, rounded hem is super flattering, hides any bulges and doesn't cling. It is described as a hip length hem, but on a shorter person like me, it's closer to upper thigh at the bottom hem.
Straps are ultra flattering too, without digging in or being just for show. There is some nice moderate support in this top.
Bottom line: looks very flattering and pretty on, works well for a variety of exercise and stretching and is made well/is holding up great.

Perfect Yoga Tank - BuhBye Power Y!
Wow I am so surprised at this tank! In all honesty, the model pics don't do it justice (sorry!). This tank holds the girls (32 DDD) nicely and the bodice fits perfectly without being overly tight and thick.
I have been wanting to replace my old Power Y's (I have 4) b/c they are a pain to get into and out of after a hot yoga class (which I do 5 days a week). I'm tired of having to dislocate my shoulders to wear them. I have all in a size 8 and they've finally started to stretch out in the bust - they did last a good long time tho - through hundreds of hot yoga, running & Bikram classes, so not all is lost.
I ordered a size 8 and size 6 in the Atma in WMTM @ $34, I am keeping both and here are the details from my first try-on:
Size 8: fits perfectly, although with some wiggle room that I suspect will stretch out after a good number of hot yoga classes. Which is the only bummer about this tank size for me. Maybe this one will be my 'fat-day' tank...
Size 6: fits even better! The girls are not squished and the bodice fits just as well as the 8 and only slightly more snug. It will be a long while before this one stretches out from my sweaty hot yoga classes.
For reference I am 5'4" and 125lbs (the girls are 32 DDD - the real kind).
*Lulu crew: please put more colours on WMTM asap (size 6 pls)! I will buy more, many more :)

Great basic in all aspects!
I like my clothing to do double-duty, but as a busty girl (30E), it's hard to find shelf bras that aren't cutting me or flattening the girls.
Just the morning I picked (2) of these up, I was saying to a friend how I needed something cute and versatile that will work on the street or in the gym... and then I walked into Lulu! Since they were on sale, and there were 2 in my size in black, I snagged them immediately! It'll work for dance, climbing, and everyday wear!
Fits TTS (I wear a 6 in tops with a bra, 4 in the CRB and scuba).
Everyone keeps comparing it to the power-y. I can't make the comparison: I disliked the power-y. Unlike this tank, it wasn't designed to take into account narrow-shoulders and big boobs.
Please bring this back in more colours!

My new Power Y!
Long live the power Y don't get me wrong but boy this Atma tank really was a surprise! I usually take a 4 in the Power Y and so I ordered the same in this tank. The fit is perfect! Like another reviewer said it is a little tight at first and then it relaxes and becomes your second skin. I am 5'4 and 120lbs and 32C for reference. I got the pink and the plum and I seriously don't ever want to take them off! Please make more colors!!! These tanks should be basics like the Power Y for sure!

I LOVE THIS TANK!
Im sooo tired of power Y's, this tank is so cute and comfortable.
I can't attest to all the bending and stretching needs for yoga, because I only wear it to personal training or light cardio -
But it is wayyyy more comfy than the power Y's - I'm 5'10 and the Power Y's seems to pull on my shoulders, I usually have to take them off fairly soon after my workouts because the cause shoulder and neck aches - but these new tanks with the criss cross style really seem to fit me better.
The rouching and scoop hems are so darling.

So adorable...perfect for yoga!
I ordered this in the midnight iris in a size 6. It is so comfortable and perfect with my wunder under crops in hot yoga. :) It's a bit longer than other tanks I have like the Power Y. I want it in pink now !!
