We designed this tank to be an ultra-light companion to our heavyweight workouts. Anti-stink and moisture-wicking technology along with a breezy racerback cut make it our go-to top for all things sweat.
update: this hip-length version is cropped to give you easy access to your drawcord and gels
the racerback cut allows you to twist with ease
moisture wicking construction pulls sweat away from the body
the tank's core construction is made of seamless Silverescent
where there are seams they are flat and engineered to reduce chafing
Perfect for hot Florida runs
I first want to say that the length on me is perfect. I'm 5'5", and this top comes about an inch or two below my hip bones. Maybe I have a shorter torso, but it works. I have two regular length SS swiftlys, and while I love them for runs in cooler, less humid weather, in hot, humid runs, they don't work so well. The SS top gets heavy after a lot of sweating, and because of the extra length, it hangs over my butt unattractively.
I wore the sleeveless BBB top to a race this past Saturday, and it was extrememly hot and humid here in FL. While the run was hot, this top did a great job at keeping me feel as cool as I could. It didn't show sweat either, which I like.
I can see myself getting a few more of these. I hope Lulu continues to make this length, and maybe keep a regular length for taller women, or women with longer torsos.

Snagged after first wear
I loved the color, fit and feel of the Run swiftly and even ordered two. However after the first wear I noticed that it had already started to snag very noticeably. I hadn't even washed it yet! I live 2 hours from the nearest lululemon. Not worth spending over $40 for a shirt that snags and rips so easily. Very Very disappointed with lululemon.

Nice top but too short
I really like this top. I wanted to get more of them because they come in so many nice, spring colors but I only got it in pinkelicious.
The fabric is light and soft and I like it that this tank does not give me the feeling of being compressed like many of the other Lulu tanks ( especially with buit-in-bras).
I wore it for the first time a few days ago to the gym....and I was not too happy that it kept riding up during my entire run!!! It would have been perfect if it were just a bit longer.

this shorter version works perfectly for me when paired with running shorts. I don't like to tuck in my tops but hate when they are so long that they almost cover my shorts. (like the regular Swiftly techs and the regular CRB tanks do) I do wish LLL would come out with more tanks this length or with rounded shirt tails. I don't want to tuck and want as little bulk around my middle as possible. I am 5'6" with a normal torso length.

Did not even get to wear it!
I just received this in the mail a few days ago, I have not worn it yet because when I flipped the bottom inside out to check it out like shown in the last picture above, I saw about an inch of thread unraveled (came out in a half loop). I'm scared if I wear it or wash it even once I'll end up with a hole forming down there or further unraveling. Very disappointing considering I live 14000km away from my nearest store, now I have to pay $5 return shipping. A bit ridiculous considering it's a $48+tax top, you would expect better quality and stitching.
I spend quite a bit of $ every month on these products the least the company can do is create great quality to match the higher prices.

I just received this tank. I was really scared because after ordering it, I read reviews that said the new length was too short because I am very tall (5'9''). But it fits perfectly and hits right at the bottom of my hips. I wouldn't like it if it were longer. I have to say that I have long legs and a shorter torso, so maybe shorter girls with longer torsos will be disappointed.

WHY CHANGE A PERFECT ITEM!?
I HATE the short length of this garment! I understand that there are folks out there with shorter bodies, however...this is FAR TOO SHORT!!
Bring back the regular legth tank! I need more!

straps too long, length too short
It has been some time since I bought a tank from lulu because I continue to find the straps too long. The end result is a tank that someone might wear to a bar if she really wants to show off her ta-ta's. The cut is low in the front and on the sides of the armholes. I remember a favourite lulu silverescent tank from years ago that fit me like a glove. Still have it, still use it! Wish it could be replicated in every colour!!! I wear the tanks for running and don't like a built-in bra. But really wish the fit could be better. I also found the length of this tank on the short side. :(

I HATE this new length. But, I LOVE LOVE LOVED the regular length. I would have spent like $300 alone on JUST these tanks!! by now had these colors been available in the OLD regular length version. I literallywould have 1 of every single color. I tried this one on in my regular size 6, it looked horrible and was so ridiculously short. I am only 5'4. It was a joke. Then I tried an 8 to see if that would help, then it was just sooo baggie and stupid looking even more. This was just brutal. Seriously if you are going to cut THAT much length off a shirt, 1. cut the PRICE TOO. sheesh. AND 2. Why not make every color in both versions. God knows you are cheaping out on EVERYTHING you make these days. It probably costs the same to make 2 as it used to for 1 back when quality was good. Shape up lululemon or Ship out. Oh wait, you are getting shipped out.... of everyones closets. Cuz corporate greed got the best of you.

favorte workout tank
I am so happy the design team came out with a shorter version. I wish there were shorter versions in all of Lulu's staple tops (CRB, Swiftly long sleeve, Swiftly short sleeves). I'm 5'1" and weigh 101lbs, 34A. I have to hem everything and often times tops are too baggy b/c of my frame.
Amazing top. I purchased 4 already just in case Lulu doesn't keep the short cut version around as a seasonal regular. Wear it for running, cross training and weightlifting. Only criticism is the material seems a little thinner and more delicate than previous swiftly.
