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 wouldn't build a house without laying a strong foundation, and we feel the same way about our winter run outfits. We designed this tank as the first layer to keep us toasty no matter what weather comes our way.
fabric + features
lightweight, inherently moisture-wicking Rulu™ Light fabric has four-way stretch that moves with you
breathable Mesh placed in high-sweat areas helps to you keep cool and dry
love the fabric and design, but fit doesn't work
I love this top, but it doesn't fit me. I am a size 4 CRB tanks, but I sized up to a 6 in this and it's still too tight in the upper back. I've got some good muscles (thanks, crossfit!), but nothing crazy. I am also very flat-chested, and this is much too tight around the bust/lats/back. The fabric visibly pulls in the upper back, even in a size up, and then I have plenty of room in the midsection. Hmm.
I really love the soft fabric and the cornflower blue color, and I also like that the hip area isn't fitted so the shirt won't ride up when I run. (I find that shirts that are tight in the hips ride up for me when I run, so I look for looser fits in that area.) I wanted this to work for me, but it just doesn't. Buff girls, beware!

Great basic tank!
I love this tank! I pretty much live in CRBs but decided to get this because I love pretty pink and wanted something a little different. This tank is very soft and I like how it is a little loser in the middle, and not as long as CRBs. I wore this on a short run and have no complaints. I hope it comes out in more colors! For reference, I am 5'3" 108lbs and I bought a size 4, I am a size 2 in CRBs.

Super Soft and Flattering
I just worked out in this top for the first time today and I love it! I usually work out in the swiftly tech run shirts and have now decided to switch to these and after writing this will be sure to purchase more. It does fit on me pretty snug however it is in a flattering way and not in a too tight way. For reference I'm 5'8 135 lbs and stuck with my usual size 6.

I just ordered this tank for the first time - I might start replacing my CRBs with it! It is so soft and falls nicely around the midsection. I am pretty small chested (36B) and the 8 fit perfectly. If you are a bit more well-endowed, it might be tight.

Love this tank...
I have this tank in three colours and love them. I think they are very flattering and feel great on. I wear my black one the most. It fits me tts, size 8, 135 5'5".

Love it, buuut...
This tank is so so comfy. Super soft, lightweight, doesn't constrict arm movements with my broader shoulders. Love the longer length in the back. Only complaint is that I got this in pow stripe angel wing/plum and the first time I washed it (hadn't even worn it) the plum bled onto the white. I was devastated, so I took it to the store and they did exchange it, but the same thing happened the second time around, just not as noticeably. I'm going back and forth as to whether or not to exchange it or just deal with it because I love the color combo. I would definitely buy more in different colors though. For reference I'm 5'4, athletic 145lb, B cup and got my usual 6 and it fits TTS.

Buttery-soft, body-skimming gorgeous tank
This tank feels like warm honey all over your body, literally melting onto your torso like a second skin. In the product picture it looks loose, but in fact it clings close to the body with a gorgeous skimming quality.
Note that this fabric is warmer than a cool racerback or other made-to-sweat tank. There's an almost fuzzy layer on the upper back and straps, and undoubtedly this tank really was made to be a breathable but warm base layer.
A detail they don't show is the picture is the layer of soft lace on the inside of the upper back - it is absolutely beautiful. I saw this in my store and had to go buy it online (they didn't have my size).
This fits tts, I'm 5'4'', 123 lbs, 34a, and took a size 4.
Lululemon, you did it again. You understand that women's athletic gear must perform, yes, but also be beautiful, the true difference between you and Under Armor or Nike. The details and fine flourishes of your pieces woo me every time. Thank you for existing. :-)

Love this tank!!
I love the no shelf bra tanks as it is, but this one is soft, sooo comfortable, and very versatile! I do find it is slightly more fitted than the CRB's. I still bought my usual size as I liked the way it fit! I like the way the straps fit as it nicely covers my sports bra. Overall I am very happy with this tank, and I am probably going to buy another one because it is a new fav!! I only gave it 4 stars only because I think it is slightly overpriced!

I got the tank with gray/navy/white/black/maroon stripes. VERY cute. Great fall/winter colors and a nice addition to my lulu wardrobe full of brights and blacks. You would need to wear a sports bra underneath. The 4 was snug and fit correctly (I am 34 B, usually XS/S top, long torso) but I sized up to 6 so it would have some "give" and feel more like a shirt than a tank.

I tried this on in a size 8 (same size as CRB) and I found it to be way to tight and unflattering. The material is nice, but the I didn't find the fit to be flattering. It might look good on the smaller girls though! I am 5'4 and 160lbs for reference.
