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
We wanted a loose-fitting tank that lets us feel unrestricted and still keeps us covered while we sweat. This long, airy tank is made of lightweight Mesh with a wide band at the hips so it stays in place whether we're right-side-up or upside-down. Getting topsy-turvy has never been so much fun.

Cute, but not for me
I've looked at the No Limits Tanks forever but never took the plunge. Years of experience w/ Lululemon have drilled into me that this won't work for me. I take a 6 in bras, but the 6 per the size chart is 2.5" bigger than my waist. I typically have a hard time w/ LLL tanks having too much fabric in the waist. So - the exaggerated torso in the No Limits could only be worse...right?
With the cadet blue/steep stripe cadet blue horizontal coming on sale, I had to try it. Gorgeous colorway. Luckily this item was available and on markdown at my local store (let's not digress re. how items are not available at all locations, hard to track something down without phoning each place, stores not picking up their phones, stores having diff. sale prices, etc. etc. etc.)
It's really cute. I would consider wearing this IRL, not just for workout situations (and I'm not a Luon-24/7 girl).
The problem: the 4's billowy torso actually looks great. They did a great job cutting the blouson to be flattering. But the bra top pushes my boobs up too high, and creates armpit fat. No amounts of adjusting could alleviate it. This is even minus the cup inserts. With the 6, the chesty issue is better, but the torso is gigantic, and the loose waistband slides around on me.
This top is recommended if your figure follows LLL's size chart, or if you're more of a triangle or A-line. For hourglasses who's heavier on top and then narrower in the waist compared to the size chart, this isn't one to risk buying WMTM without a try-on first.

This Tank is Perfection!
Weight: 185 lbs
I wear a tank top and a sports bra under neath my work shirt at the grocery store I work at. This tank was the best of both worlds. It's comfortable. Soft. The right amount of support in the right areas. No more pesky bra straps showing when I want to wear a tank top! Thanks Lulu!

-5'10 thin build
-I am a runner but I also figure skate as well as do a little bit of yoga and crossfit
-Generally I am a 4 in tops and a 6 in bottoms
I really love this tank. Its perfect for those days when you arent feeling so "great" but still looks amazing when you are! I have the pipe dream blue color combo version of this tank and Ive had it for about 4 months now.
-The bottom band is tight against my hips so it stays put when I am doing yoga
-It looks great with jeans or workout bottoms
-The lightweight feel of the mesh is great for warmer days
-The color (pipe dream blue) is so beautiful!! Please keep this one around!
-The built in bra is surprisingly supportive for larger girls but I would not be able to wear this on a run (I would need more support) but it is perfect for yoga or just lounging in
-It washes very well. I usually wash all of my lulu gear together and like with like in terms of colors and I havent had an issue yet.
-Price: PLEASE LULU. Think about changing the prices for your gear.
-Weird sizing... maybe its just me, but I find that the straps are very tight, but if you go up a size, the band for the bra is HUGE! I tried on both the 6 and the 4 and ended up with the 4 because of the sizing issue. I needed the bra to be tight so I wouldnt fall out during practice, but as a result, the straps are very tight and if I wear it for too long they start to hurt my neck! I'm not sure how lulu would fix this, but I feel like this needs to be addressed.
The tank is beautiful, its very beautiful and comfortable. I love that the bottom band helps the tank to stay put during practice, but I would love it if Lulu found a way to make the straps more comfortable.

My First Lulu
I bought this and the Wunder Under Crop in Pretty Palm Cadet Greyvy. My very first Lulus!
The top is SO comfortable! It holds the girls just right without pinching or restraining. I was worried that the flowy material would make me very sweaty during my workout but not so at all. I love being able to work out hard AND feel pretty and feminine while I'm doing it.
I'm about 5' tall, I wish Lulu came in sizes for us short girls!
My only regret is that I bought it a day too early: The next day it went into the "we made too much" section. Bummer!

You know why they call it No Limits?
Hey- you know why this tank is called No Limits? Because there are *no limits* to how huge your belly can get before these tops stop fitting. Hahaha! I bought two of these in size 4 back in December for Zumba and aerobics, and they were working out like a dream. About a month later, I found out I was pregnant, and they have turned out to be a godsend! Now that I'm coming up on 8 months pregnant, none of my other non-maternity workout or athletic gear fits, but I still keep finding plenty of room in my No Limits. I use them for *everything* now - hiking, dance, yoga, zumba, aerobics - any exercise at all! I did eventually have to invest in a couple of size 6s because my pregnancy boobs got too big for the bra part of my size 4s, but that investment has been plenty worthwhile. Despite lots of use every week, they've stayed bright and new-looking and have held up great after dozens of washes. They're miles better than any of the maternity-specific workout clothes I've seen on the market in terms of quality, comfort, and style, and the great thing is that I'll still be able to use them (and they'll still look great!) once I'm not pregnant anymore. Love!

I'm in love
This shirt has revolutionized my life I wear it to do yoga and it stays put so I don't have to break focus to readjust all the time. I'm a new mom and the added benefit I never saw coming is that it's now my favorite breast feeding shirt too! I go from yoga to whipping out a boob in 2 seconds! Because let's face it new mom's don't have alought of extra time. This shirt also hides my belly so I don't feel so self conscious!

I bought this tank in hopes of a good tank for Barre classes and it does not disappoint. It also makes a really good tank for running errands and doing tasks around the house. It's super comfortable for lighter activities, I wouldn't suggest for running or activities that include a lot of jumping.

Great shirt until colours bled....
I absolutely loved this shirt when I bought it in store! However, after one wear and a wash, the green and pink colours bled together and left purple stains all over the material. I have tried soaking it in cold water as well as several different types of soap and stain removers, but the dye only seems to be spreading. I have bought several other tanks from lululemon and have never had this problem, so it was quite a disappointment, especially since the nearest store to return it to is a six hour drive from my home.

Totally in love!
This is by far my favourite tank top from Lululemon! My friends and I would swap tops as quite a few of us all have them and all in different colours, at first I was just borrowing theirs but finally went out and bought myself two. I just adore these tanks. The only complaint I have is that when it came time to wash them(cold water, only lulu products, hang to dry ect.) the pink one I own turned a off pink colour, so I washed it another time and then let it soak in a basin with some soap and the colour sort of turned back to normal.

MY FAV...but does pill overtime. More colours?
I wear this tank year round...almost everyday. Weight training, running, relaxing, layered under my work clothes, you name it!
I literally live in these tanks because they are so comfortable, and flattering.
This item fits great everywhere, including in the bust which is where some of the built-in-bra tanks fail. The inner sports bra is nice and stretchy and doesn't allow for you to "spill out" anywhere. Regardless of your bust size this tank will likely work for everyone because the bra in it is so versatile.
The only thing I did notice is that the jersey type material (body of tank, not the sports bra) does pill. I have had a few of these tanks now and they have all pilled.
Also, if anyone from LuLu is reading...can you please make more colours? I am deeply saddened there is no camo in this yet
