Run: Swiftly Tech Racerback
Perfect for hot weather running
This tank is amazing for hot weather running. It's lightweight, dries quickly, and is easy to wear. I love, love, love it for running. But, it's not a great pick for yoga or bootcamp or other sweaty pursuits that have you bending over or upside down. It is a bit looser at the bottom than a CRB, so it will flip up if I'm bent over or upside down. For right side up use, it's perfect.

warm weather go to tank
A must for every hot weather workout. There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been said about the qualities of this tank...but I do want to clarify this burning yellow is regular length. Some reviewers have commented contrary but I'm 5`11" so if it's going to run short I would definitely notice and it's the same length as other swiftly tanks I have from previous years. Btw, burning yellow is a great color..not orange like I was scared of.

Best workout tank
I love this tank! I want every color! I love the breathable material and the fact there isn't a build in sports bra. I'm 5'4" and this was the perfect length for me for lifting or running, but I bet it would be great in yoga too. Very comfortable and very flattering.

Lightweight, comfy, thin
I am newer to running but have always been active (and a Lulu lover). I got this on sale in the burning yellow color; I really like it! The color is beautiful, it's lightweight, a higher neckline than the CRB but length is shorter. I am 5' 10" and it hits just below the hips. I like the stitching @ the bottom--It doesn't bubble but it keeps it where it belongs.
I wouldn't buy this in long sleeve because it is so thin; this is made for those hot days that you still gotta get out there and cover up a bit.

breathable fabric but too short
i love the fabric and how it has a mesh-ish feel when you run but this top was kinda short for me.. it did not stay put when i ran and i felt like i was pulling it down a lot. i also wore it to barre class and it was comfortable but i was still pulling on it.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
I own about 10 of these tanks after having bought my first one about a year ago. I don't want to wear anything else on my workouts. This tank is perfect for hot yoga and hot flow. It is very lightweight and dries quickly. The body skimming fit won't fly up over your head in an inversion. I also wear these running but I do notice it feeling clingy after 10K. I have worn them through several half marathons and aside from not very flattering finish pictures I love them.
I'm 5'3, 111lbs, 32C and bought size 4 which fits perfect. I wear them over just about any Lulu racerback bra (Energy, Free to Be, All Sport, Top Speed).

sadness ? another LLL fabric gone cheap-o
So my boyfriend and I were walking by a LLL store today, we ended up going inside, then my b-friend told me that he'd buy me an outfit! This doesn't happen every day!
So of course I was determined to find something. I've REALLY been unhappy with my LLL purchases recently, having returned most of the last six months of stuff for quality reasons, and had a VERY hard time finding something that wasn't made out of stiff and scratchy luon, crazy thin luxtreme, or which wasn't neon (sorry, just not my colour scheme). Finally I decided on this tank (in the pale teal colour) and a pair of running crops. I own two others of this style, and probably another half dozen SS and LS Swiftlys.
I thought this one felt a bit different from the others I have in the style (which are each fairly old, one even from the first run of the sleeveless about five years ago). When I got home, I compared them. My new one is quite a bit shorter, and the fabric just isn't as soft. It feels significantly thinner and more prone to snagging. Not sure how the fabric has changed (I had long torn out the tags of the other shirts) but I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it. I mean, I really get a lot of use out of my SL Swiftlys and will undoubtably use this one quite a bit, too.
Lululemon is crazy. You can't open stores in a bazillion different cities and then cut corners on the product because you're banking on your brand being super trendy. It's just poor business. This whole see-through pant thing has alienated you to a lot of these folks who are newer to your brand. Meanwhile, the Canadian consumers ? who are the most loyal of any of your customers ? are still giving you a chance, even though we really don't have much reason to love you any more.
This shirt, when it first came out, was friggin' GENIUS. Now it's something I expect I'll wear three or four times and then have to return for quality issues. Hélas.

My Favorite tee
I love this tee. It's me and my husband favorite. I bought this style of fabric for my husband also. We have many color and a different corection. now I want more color. But looking at same one I got for last 2 years, with different color. I don't know the color look sheer or the texture is sheer and thin. So I pause my plan buying for now. Untill I figure it out what was wrong. Sorry Lulu we love you. But We just not sure how much you care about us. I'm sure all LONG TIME LULU FAN feel the same way.

I absolutely love this top, it fits perfectly (135 pounds, 5'6", size 6 top). The best part is that it feels like you are hardly wearing anything when you work out! Please add more colors!!!

One of My Faves
I LOVE this tank. It's so flattering and so comfy... washes great and is just loose enough at the bottom to be flattering without adding any volume. I wear it for everything from lifting weights to running sprints.
