Stuff Your Bra Tank II
My fave top
This is my favourite lululemon top. I managed to get it off of WMTM not too long ago, but always select this top for my hardest workouts. I bought a size 6. I am 34/26/36.5. This is the only top where I can perform supersets of box jumps/pushups/jump rope/burpees without my iphone getting tossed across the room. The fact that it has the pockets in the front is amazing, you don't get all tangled up in your headphones.
Your iphone can actually stay put (if you place it in the pocket horizontally), and the cord from your headphones can be placed in the second pocket so it doesn't get ripped out when you're moving.
I also love the support (with cups). My top did not come with cups, but I have learned you can just call lululemon and they'll send you cups for free (amazing customer service). I wouldn't wear any lulu tops without cups, besides the no limits tank (personal preference).

Tight at the top, lose at the bottom!
Just bought the tank today. Tried it on and I have mixed feelings about this tank. I love the fabric and the color! I got the pink/raspberry striped one. I am a 32 A/B in the top and I bought a size 4. It is quite snug at the top and may be a bit too snug for my liking. On the other hand, the rest of the top is a little loose. My waist is about 24 inches and the waist on this top in a size 4 is probably 26-28 inches. I wish it was a little tighter at the bottom.
But other than that, the top is nice. Love the pattern and color.

I bought this tank online through the WMTM sale. As other reviewers have noted, there seemed to be some flaws in the seams that make this item more of a "factory seconds" item than surplus stock. Having said that, the flaw (pulling in the fabric along the seam under the bust) is not that noticeable when i am wearing the tank.
It is super supportive and comfortable when i am running and the straps don't move at all. I got a size 8 which i am totes happy with as i float between a 6 and 8 in LLL tanks depending on the support level of the built-in bras and style of fit.
This size 8 is nice and tight up top and skims over the rest of my torso to make it really nice and flattering, without excess fabric or bunching at the hips.
The openness of the back is awesome for hot and sunny morning runs and the moisture-wicking fabric really lives up to the hype!!
The only downside is that it didn't come with the removable cups (i like a little more than just a fabric barrier between me and the world). I thought it was supposed to have but that could just be my own misunderstanding.

LOVE THIS STYLE
I love this style top (I also own their sports bra like this) and it's the best ever! I store my I-Phone 5 in the pocket while I run and it doesn't more a bit! It's super safe, especially since I live in Chicago and right when this style came out runners were getting mugged for their phones that were on their arm band. So much more safe. I was sad to hear they are not selling it at the stores any more.

I work out at a vey very high intensity for a minimum of 90 minutes. With that said, I need support, durability, comfort, and practical. I am 5'8" and 155 and wear a size 6. This top meets every requirement that I have for running, biking and lifting weights. The size 6 fits perfectly in all areas. Thank you!

I ordered this tank online and when it arrived it had a sticker on the tag that said "Things don't always go as planned - this garment has fit, function or visual imperfections" Why are you sending customers damaged items???

roomy fit for me
I'm adding a review just because I've seen so many mixed "size up" or "size down" reviews of this tank. The back is lovely and the cross is extremely flattering. Personally I found the top to fit slightly large compared to say a 'scoop me up tank" and similar to the "aria" tank. In hind sight I would have ordered a size smaller. I am 5 foot 8 with 36, 27, 37 measurements and ordered the size 8. The disappointing thing that I found about this top is that it came with a sticker on it saying "sometimes we don't get things right - visual imperfections". I did notice when I put it on that there were some inperfections in the pattern in the way it was stitched across the bust. I suppose if I had bought a solid colour this might not be noticeable but I bought one with horizontal stripes. I find it a little distracting when I see how it fits around the bust as a result, however I bought it in WMTM so I guess that's the deal. I think it would have been nice if LLL had mentioned this when advertising the tank and perhaps discounted more given the imperfection - because in this case it wasn't that they "made too much", it was that there were flaws and I feel just a bit taken. Having said that, I must say that the cross back straps and length are flattering and I think even with the imperfections that if you were to order this in a solid colour you would never notice.

Great tank, durable fabric and sufficient support
Got my first 'stuff your bra' tank in August as a gift and I loved it so much, I ordered a second one, in pink, on WMTM sales. This top is perfect for running hands free, fabric is nice and offers good support to my 34C girls. I am usually between a size 4 and a size 6 and I must say that this tank runs a bit small so order a size larger than usual. I personally ordered a 6 and it fits perfectly.

love, love, love.
I thought I'd try this tank based on the reviews of the bra itself. I usually wear a 6 in Lulu bras, but decided to go with a 4 since I'm bustier on top and leaner throughout my midsection. Well, I chose correctly! (for reference I am a 34D, 110 lbs., 5'3) I got this in Blue Moon/Inkwell on the WMTM, and I am in love. It fits perfectly around my bust and just right around my midsection. I feel very secure in it during my long runs and high intensity workouts. I love the design of it and the large cross straps in the back which allow for more movement. Just need new colors Lulu! Thanks for making a great top!

Love. Want em all.
Love this. Haven't worn it running, so I can't attest to the support level of such an activity, but I wore it spinning the other day and it.was.HEAVEN. The mesh and slightly more open back really helped keep me cool, and the coverage in the front was perfect -- high enough to keep everything contained, but not covering so much that I felt restricted or overheated. Didn't have to adjust or pull the top up once. Perfection. Headed to my lulu store today to try to pick up another color on sale. Fingers crossed!
