Love this tank
I bought one of these tanks a few years ago and it is absolutely my favourite shirt (wore it until it got a few small holes and now it's my favourite bed shirt). I was so excited to see it again this year and ordered the striped angel wing. Fit is loose and comfy but still body-skimming and flattering, fabric is super soft and thin. If this came in more colours and was sold year-round I would probably own a dozen. I recommend sizing down if you're unsure.

I love this tank and wish I had found them sooner. I got the angel wing stripe in store from a return. I sized up to a 6 because I like the looser fit with the lighter fabric. It's gorgeous and I've washed and worn it multiple times. I always wash my lulus in a separate load with normal cold cycle. I just hang them all on a rack to dry. Make more colors please!!! And re-release the gray ones. I hesitated and they were gone.

Sad & Disappointed
First bad review. Love my lulu for years. Purchased the plum, wore it once, washed it on delicate and hung dry. The seams around the arms no longer laid flat. Not sure if it's shrinkage on the top. It looks warped.

Favorite tank...but be careful of plum sizing
I adore this tank...lived in it years ago. The quality of material on this version reminds me of the first round of modern racerbacks several years ago that were vitasea. Subsequently they came out with a 'cotton' version that I didn't like as much.
On this version, haven't washed yet but can tell it needs a gentle cycle, to be kept away from anything that's not a delicate and AIR DRIED. It's my opinion that everything lululemon except for french terry should be air dried.
Sizing and fit on this seems to be exactly what it was in years past BUT the plum is definitely smaller than all the other colours i got (got navy and white). I'd almost say it's an entire size smaller or half a size smaller. I'm 5'2", 122 lbs and got a 4. Fits snug and looks pretty, but the plum is just a hair too small.

Super soft, great for casual wear
I love the casual look of this tank. I love the racerback style and I can wear it in place of a CRB's for everyday/casual wear. I am usually a 10/12 in CRB's and the 10 fits great in this style. The material is super soft, a little thin though, so I layer another tank underneath. The angel wing feels much softer and thinner than the black or grey I tried on, but I love it! I'll save my CRB's for the gym and wear these to work/for casual use. I do hope they hold up in the wash-I will be sad if they shrink up.

I bought this tank because of the inkwell/green stripe. Not sure about the material as it felt thinner and more delicate than that of the CRB. I do like that the fit is looser and light - perfect for casual wear. I find this to be a size down item for me. I usually wear an 8 in CRB or Swifty tanks (a 10 for most other tanks with shelf bras) and the 8 in this was roomy, actually too roomy. I got it in a 6 and the fit was better for my 5'4" height. I hope it will not shrink like one of the previous review because I really like the color combo! Will buy more if there are more dark color combo!

Different fit than the old version...
I have a modern racer back from way back - 3 or 4 years ago, I think, and it is my favorite summer shirt, period. I wear it a couple of times a week, first for casual wear, then I work out in it, then into the wash, and again :) I was so excited when I saw the top come back, and went into my local store to check out the colors in person...I tried it on, and I'm glad I did, because the fit was not the same, I think because the fabric is different than my older version. The tank looked just ok, pulling in funny places and not laying right. For me, it wasn't flattering. I didn't purchase one, and will just keep wearing and re-wearing the old version!

Loved it Four Years Ago
Loved these tanks years ago... when they came in a 12. Unfortunately I see this top is another unfortunate victim of the disappearing size 12's at Lulu... Disappointing to say the least I wish I would have picked up a few more back then.

Soft, cute and comfy
Love this top, got it in plum. I am usually a size 6 (6'0, 130 lb), but the 6 was kind of baggy and made me look fat so I sized down to a 4. The 4 looked fitted and great. It's a little less structured than the CRB Tank and softer. Overall, love it!

Great until washing
After taking a break from Lulu for a few months bc of quality issues I decided to buy this tank after seeing in store. I'm constantly on the search for basic tanks and this one totally caught my eye. Purchased in the light gray in size 6... I'm a normal size 4 but looked like it ran small. Unfortunately after ONE washing (cold cycle, tumble dry low and hung partially damp) it shrunk considerably in length and just didnt look as nice. I wore again yesterday - just finished laundry and it got even shorter!! I'm sure by a few inches... It's not quite crop top length but definitely hits at my pelvic bone. So far it looks like all of the good reviews were given BEFORE washing. I'd be curious for people to come back and give another review after washing. So upset I wasted $50 :(
