Ebb To Street Tank
nice, but some issues
Overall fit is snug and flattering, mint color is beautiful and it's very comfortable even with rigorous workout. The lightweight fabric feels good at first, but it's nearly see-through and once you start sweating it almost has the feel and look of paper. All that wouldn't be a deterrent, but somewhere over the past year or so Lululemon changed the material in the bra cups so they are sort of like thin cardboard, get easily wrinkled and stay that way and that looks very strange. I notice some of the others commented on the same thing: the puckered look. I was able to switch them out for some cups from an older top, but I wish they'd go back the the previous material. As much as I have loved these tops (and other Lulu gear) over many years, I don't think they are worth the price anymore.

too thin for price
I love my CRBs, Power Ys and a few other lulu tops. This one just didn't make the cut. I ordered white (the girl doing the inversion looked amazing and I was bias immediately) and found it...not flattering. The cups look TERRIBLE in the white. Any lump or imperfection in those made your boobs look--lumpy. The rest of the top is see through and wasn't as thick as I was expecting.
I do like the material and ribbed look of the shirt. The straps were great and the etching was a nice touch. Maybe in another color this would've been a hit. But the cups and white were a NO GO. Are the cups a regular problem for others?

On the Fence
I got two of these - in blush and in black. The black IS softer, for whatever reason, but the blush is not really rough, so that really didn't matter to me.
I got the 10 and it fit very well through the chest - I am 5'10" and 150, 34/36 C.
I love the length, it would go back without a doubt, were it not for the length.. because:
I wore the blush tank to yoga class last night. During inversions the tank rode up. The belly bagged out and I had to pull it down several times. NOT what I had in mind, and a terrible class distraction. The belly was still a bit bagged out when I got home. Going to wash it according to label and if it doesn't snap back, this sucker is going back. Fingers are crossed.
I don't have a store anywhere close to exchange either. Grrrrr.

didn't work for me
Sad to say this one was a no-go for me. I'm 5'4", 34/24.5/34.5 currently & ordered the size 6 in white. Bottom half is completely sheer & bra top portion opaque - giving a somewhat cheap look imo. I also noticed bunching occurring at straps above chest area. Other than that the fit was ok. Will be returning.

I LOVE LOVE this tank!! I love it so much I bought it in three different dark colours - this is a must buy! It is pricey but I think it beats all the other tanks out there. I got a size 6, height is 5'3, weight 130 pounds and bra size is 34C.

My absolute favorite seamless tank
Fabric is super soft. I always remove the bra inserts - to me they create a weird shape to the bust. I actually wear these tanks for casual outfits as well -- they look perfect under a spring blazer or with a maxi skirt and denim jacket.
As for sizing -- I'm generally a size 6 or 8 in Lulu bottoms. but my bust is an augmented 36D, and I do not like things super tight around my waist/torso, and totally hate any hint of potential back flab, so for me the size 12 addresses all those issues. The shelf bra is supportive enough that I don't require a bra, but is comfortable and not restricting in any way.
Please replenish in size 12 - would love to buy a couple more!!
Probably the most flattering tanks I own from Lulu -- order it - you won't be disappointed.

Ebb to Street Tank
This is great to wear as an everyday top or to workout. I love that the inserts are not too bulky. It is nicely fitting. I bought the grey and would love to buy it in another colour.

I liked this tank at first because it's so comfortable and stretchy but the padding is really off. Like one of the other reviewers said, if there are any wrinkles in the padding you can see them right through the material. Also, I only washed the tank once (no dryer) and when I readjusted the padding I noticed that the top layer was peeling off of both. I usually prefer my tanks with some light removable padding but this time it's no good and the color is almost too light to wear without pads.

MORE IN WHITE/CREAM PLEASE!
I absolutely LOVE these tanks. I hate the padding in the boob area though, if it has any wrinkles in them you can totally see it through the tank. It just looks unnatural! No problem for me though, I removed them and they fit great without them. I don't think I have any Lulu tanks though in which I've kept the cups because of this reason...
I knew I should have bought the white color when I saw it online. I can't find it anywhere now and of course that color is sold out now. I would LOVE if they made these again in WHITE and maybe even a light cream color! That would be beautiful. :)
I would also loooooooveeee if you guys could make the "quiet stripe" crop/pant pattern again - a lot of people are looking for these and some people are even selling them on e-bay for upwards of $500!

see through fabric
I bought the light pink tank. The material is too thin and you could see my stomach through it. Sending back.
