Our time on the mat is often spent trying to quiet our minds and steady our breath. This lightweight tank gives us the coverage we need and the freedom we crave so we can stop fidgeting, and practice stillness.
I just received this piece in the mail from WMTM in yellow and it is adorable. I like how I'm able to wear the top without the extra straps of a bra now that the weathers warming up and I know I'll be seeing plenty of tan lines with my other tops. The only downside is that when I opened the packaged there is a small dirt spot of some sort on the front of it. I'm sure it will come out in the wash but it definitely makes you wonder what's happening to your products before they arrive. I know I take extra care of my lulu things since they're something I fit into my budget at the high price, I'd hope that they are too. Anyways, I always love the cute bright new styles that come out and am more than happy to take the extra of their hands! ;)

Figure flattering; needs more support for running
I am 5'5, 145 pounds, 36C, athletic/curvy. Purchase this in dune, size 8--great fit---beautiful, soft top---EXTREMELY flattering on. However, it should only be used for light activities. I was bouncing all over the place when I tried to lightly jog! However, when wearing a sports bra underneath it, it can be used for running/jogging.

Not as Good as the Original
I have one of these tanks from a couple years back and love it, so when I saw these go on sale, I had to grab one. The shirt has COMPLETELY changed. While it still looks beautiful, the fabric has been completely re-done, so that it now feels like you're wearing a handkerchief over your torso. Not only is the new fabric much more sheer and not nearly as soft, but it is so thin that I am worried it will start spontaneously developing holes. Please bring back the old fabric!!! I kept two stars because I really do love the cut and style, but it's just not worth the money anymore.
Also, the frond green version with the gingham bra runs smaller than the other colors, so please include information like that into your product description in the future...the same happened for me with my gingham CRB.

WARNING for big chested women
My mom had purchased these tanks and looked so cute in them so I went and tried them on. My mom is about 125 lbs with an 32A chest. However, I am 105 lbs with a 32D chest. I usually wear a size 2 in LuLu tops, but I had to size up to a 4 in this to get my girls inside the sports bra. I actually would have felt far more comfortable in an even larger size, but the actual shirt part was getting too large. I purchased the size 4 and although the sports bra is a bit snug, it still looks adorable. I will be wearing this to hot yoga tonight to see if it stretches six inches like another reviewer had mentioned!

Not for an Hourglass Figure
I couldn't wait to try on this top, but like another one designed similarly to this, I just am not a fan of the style. It is baggy wear your waist goes in and then balloons out at my curvy hips. Maybe it's just me, but I like my yoga gear to look classic and not trendy. I think this top looks a little like the Victoria's Secret Pink line, not a state-of-the-art yoga top.

flattering tank for curvy gals!
I just received this tank in bleached coral/pop orange and LOVE the fit! I'm curvy and petite and love that this style shows off the back and shoulders but is great for hiding a bit of tummy. The waistband feels very secure and I'm excited to wear this tank for boot camp, yoga, and running. Many have mentioned they don't like the thin luon sheer jersey that forms the body of the tank, but personally I find it smooth and lightweight and I think will be perfect for staying cool during runs and boot camp classes in hot, humid weather.
I'm 5'4", 140lbs, 36A, and the size 8 fits me perfectly with plenty of support and coverage in the attached bra.
Only downside: Lulu didn't include the bra cups. Please *please* include these with each order, Lululemon. We customers pay top dollar for your products and expect to receive the cups we know and love! I removed one star for this because I'll now have to make an extra trip to a store to get my missing cups.

Finally a top with good coverage...
I love lululemon but their tops let's face to do not always give good coverage for those of us that are a little larger up top. I am 5'6" 128 lbs athletic built - I wear a size 4 in lululemon and am a 32DD. This top fits awesome!!! I don't have to wear a second sports bra underneath which is normally what I have to do with their tops to give me more coverage. I got the blue and get so many compliments on it. Plus I am a sweat monster and the light fabric absorbs my sweat but also dries very quickly. Love this top!!!

great running tank
I ran in this for the first time today...loved it! It stayed in place...did not have to tug at it the entire time. It kept me cool on a warm morning. I am a 34C and it held me together very comfortably. Not sure why others are complaining about cheap fabric. It is soft and it stays dry. No complaints from me...I may be adding a few more to my lulu stash.

Really wanted to love this...
This was actually the first lulu top I ever bought (less than 4 months ago). I got it in the classic black color. I was so proud to own it and was super excited to wear it to yoga. After my first wear, I hand washed the top, because the material is very delicate (and it costed A LOT) in cold water and hung it to dry. The next time I wore it to yoga, I noticed in the mirror that the threading was sticking out on the bottom of my top and when I looked to check it, I saw it was completely loose. It didn't snag, but the row of stitching was loose and coming undone! I wasn't sure which I was upset about more: my first ever lulu top coming apart, or spending over $65 on a top that I thought I would love and be able to wear for a long time...only to find out the real lifespan and quality of it. The top is so cute, but the stitching is really questionable.
I wanted so badly to love this top. I still do, but I am just so disappointed in this product. :'(

I've had pantyhose that snags less
Returned! How on earth did this top achieve 4 stars? I really wanted to like this top, the style has potential and I found the ventilation features quite charming, but that's as far as it goes. Unless you are flat chested this top offers absolutely no support whatsoever and ultimately looks trashy unless you can wear a strapless or some kind of support, personally I feel very uncomfortable wearing a strapless bra under and end up adjusting over and over with every stretch and it ruins my zen. As for the fabric I can honestly say pantyhose is more durable and snags far less. When you pay $70 after tax on a top expecting quality and it snags before you make it to the gym I logically consider that it's not a wearable garment, much less something gym worthy. I'm assuming this top is for the uber rich who can afford to wear once and retire it to the garbage, I dread to imagine the condition of the fabric after washing.
