moisture-wicking, four-way stretch Luon® fabric is breathable and cottony soft - we love this high-performance fabric for its serious stretch and recovery
lightweight, stretchy and moisture-wicking, this fabric holds you in and breathes at the same time, making it perfect for all kinds of sweaty business
why we made this
To create this loose-fitting, light and airy tank we used a combination of sweat-wicking Luon™ in the bra and lightweight Mesh in the core to optimize its movement and breathability. It's the perfect match for our Vinyasa practice where we like our clothes to mimic and accentuate our flow.
fabric + features
the thin straps and racerback cut allow you to twist with ease
breathable Mesh body is moisture-wicking
removable cups add shape and give coverage
the wide band around the hips keeps the tank in place
beware, sweaty people
I first took this tank to a lifting/conditioning session and it was great. The tank was comfortable, the fit was flattering. The loose fabric did not get in the way, the airiness kept me cool, and the coverage was appropriate for the gym.
Then, I took the tank to a heated vinyasa flow class. I sweat buckets and normally I just wear a sports bra and small shorts, but I thought I'd give this tank a try. I soaked through the top in about 30 minutes, during which my practice was great. After this I felt that the sweaty fabric was in the way, and, as I continued to sweat buckets, my sweat overpowered the tank's moisture-wicking abilities, and it actually weighed down the bra part to the point where it sagged. Perhaps the sagging problem would have been mitigated by going down a size (but I'm already the smallest size..). In any case, after the class was over I was not happy about having to trudge home in a ball of heavy, soaked fabric.
In the future, I think I'll just stick to sports bra and shorts for heated yoga classes and let my sweat roll off onto my towel. I'll use this tank for less sweaty activities.

An almost perfect tank...
I can easily wear it to a 90 minute hot flow class and it wicks moisture away likes it's nothing.
Did I mention it's super cute?
The Cons (and the only reason I did not give it 5 stars):
After one wear it stretched out-my breasts are getting dangerously close to popping out and the waist band is increasingly falling down over my belly on inversions (and I already went down one size from the recommended size chart).
After one wash the grey began to bleed into the pink. Very disappointing. I've order another one in the next size down and in a solid color, so hopefully that will fix the problem but it is sad that I had to pay $64 for a tank that ultimately didn't fit and bleed after one wear/wash.

Light support but very nice
I made the mistake of wearing this top to a cross-fit class which was a bit of problem for me because the light support was not enough for box jumps, jump-rope etc. (if you get the idea...) The top is beautiful and would be perfect for yoga or something less aerobic. I plan on wearing it in the summer to survive the hot days outside! Great top!

Super comfy super flattering
This shirt is one of my all time favourite Lululemon tanks, I wear it in the summer on hot humid days, it keeps me cool and I don't feel awkward as if I am wearing workout clothing. I have also worn it to hot yoga, it awesome, its comparable to wearing a sports bra but with out the added level of self consciousness. I have had friends who found the elastic around the waist unflattering however with my rectangle body it works for me.

Pros & cons for pregnancy
I ordered this tank because it looked like it would have the most room for my prego belly. The body fits nicely over my 5 month belly with room to grow, but the bra portion is definitely not supportive enough for my girls during pregnancy. I will likely keep this tank and wear it over a more supportive sports bra.
It would be nice if there was a medium support tank that was a little more roomy in the body - the Rest Less Tank doesn't look like it will cut it. I know lulu does not design for pregnancy - that is a very specific market - but a more supportive version of the No Limits tank would probably sell to more than just the pregnant ladies.
Last but not least, I have ordered MANY tanks in the past (usually scoop neck) and have never received cups with them. This time I opened the package and their was a set of cups included - thanks lulu!

I love this tank! I was nervous to try it on because I didn't think I would be confident to pull off the openings in the side. It turns out that it's perfectly modest though - it's a flattering cut, and the sides only show a peek of skin, so there's no reason to be uncomfortable here. I like to put cups in the bra lining of my tank, but it's not really necessary. I wear it for walking my dog, jogging on treadmills or sweating in barre class. This tank is a classic for a reason!

Ok, so I'm a little late to the party, as this is my first lulu purchase, but I'm a convert now! I have this in a gorgeous green color and wear it to train at the gym. It's incredibly comfortable, flattering, and moves with me as I'm jumping around, doing whatever my trainer tells me. I normally worry about the built-in sports bras, as I'm on the larger side and sometimes need additional support, but didn't have to worry about this at all. Note that it does show sweat stains a bit more than other products, and it's quite long, which is why I took a star off. All in all, very pleased and would love to get another.

Beautiful tank and very flattering
I received this tank as a thank you for leading one of the in store Sunday Morning Yoga classes and loved it! It is very flattering and shows off the shoulders.
The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it pulls my neck forward and strains the backs of the neck if I wear it for too long, like a halter top. But maybe that's just me and my upper back not being as curvy as normal people.
Otherwise it's a gorgeous top!!

Since when you start to include pads?!
I got this new no lint tank, like 5 min ago by Fedex!
Lulu orders used to come in mail, but now it's Fedex! Quick!
This is my 5th no limit tank, and! to my surprise, this time, it came with pads!!!
This is a presant surprise as I was always putting pads in and out of the tanks every time I change to the different tank.
Lulu, since when you started to put pads in the no limit tank??
The same model I saw in store didn't have pads. Is this web special?
I've ordered no limits tank from online store in the past, but this is the first time ever delivered with pads.
If this is the new web only feature, I would only buy stuff from online store.

I have a lot of these tanks
I have this tank in 5 colors/ sizes. I originally bought a size 10 (one size up) since the in store fitting room made a size 8 look super unflattering and like I had wings of back fat poking out, but the size 10 eliminated this problem.
I was also assured that it wouldn't stretch out... and how wrong they were! My size 10 very quickly stretched out on me to the point where I have to wear a push up bra underneath just to fill it out. But my bad I bought the wrong size.
So I returned and bought a size 8 (my regular size) and it also stretched out so much that I cannot wear it without a little padding underneath!
So then I figured a size 6 would work... same problem!
Size 4? Seems to have stretched out the perfect amount now that I can wear it by itself! But let me tell you, the first few days wearing it were a struggle trying to get the tight bra over my shoulders! But like I said, now it has stretched out so at least it fits!
