Stuff Your Bra Tank II
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!

Left me with scars on my chest
I was initially attracted to the shirt so I could put my phone in the pocket and be hands free on runs. I told a lot of people about the three pocket design and built in bra feature; however, this was all before actually running in it. I used it to run a half marathon and was alarmed by a stinging in my chest that developed during mile 4. The pain it was causing continued to increase throughout the run. The flat seam feature to reduce chafing was unsuccessful. I have always run in lulu tops for races and weekly runs and this is the first issue I've had. I now have bilateral and painful chest burns which are scabbing and scarring where the shirt line was. The location of these burns are very visable in the dress I have to wear for a wedding this weekend.

Not true to size and material is flimsy
It is not true to size and runs loose for me. It's not
snugged enough to provide support for running. I am a 34C and fit US size 6 perfectly for all Lululemon tops, but this top is too big for me even though the online reviews said that the sizes run small. The quality of the power luxtreme material was also flimsy and creases easily, quite different from other power luxtreme tops i owned.

Favorite LL Tank!
I absolutely love this tank! It's tight on the chest to keep "everything" in place, but the fabric around the stomach is a little loose, so I don't feel like a stuffed sausage. While it provides great support, the straps are thick, and, therefore, don't ride into your shoulders. I could wear this top all day! Perfect for cardio and strength training. Please don't ever stop making it :)

Wish I had invented this tank.
So I love love love this. I have been running with my iphone in my bra since I got a phone. I wish I had invented this because I think it is such a good idea. I do not even feel my phone in the tank. It also keeps my headphones from moving as much too. I did size up in this. Truthfully, I probably need a size 7. ha. That would be perfect. I am 5'8'' 36 B bust big rib cage and 135 pounds. My only problem with this tank is that it had this sticker on it that said, "oops, sometimes things do not go as planned". Well, ain't that some bull$h*t. I mean come on. We pay a lot money for lulu. EVERYTHING should go right, or do not send it. Anyhow, I did not send it back, and I shall live with the stripes not matching up correctly. However, I will not forget this and I think it is a little absurd. ( I did not send it back, because I am out of town often and no store is truly close, and I did not trust the site enough to send me a correct one for the second time.)

I agree with others about sizing up (or if you are in between sizes, go for the bigger size). The top is very flattering. The purple I received in the mail today is gorgeous. It does show some cleavage, but nothing excessive. My only concern is that I think mine is defective because the colours on the straps aren't symmetric (unlike the ones on the models).

after reading all the reviews I decided to size up and I am really glad I did. I am an athletic body type but very slim through the core so I did worry that it would be too loose but it fits perfectly. The tank has great support and great lines, very flattering. I am usually a consistent size 4 but the size 6 is perfect. Enjoy!

One star for style!
Can't hide mid-section imperfections with this tank, and its length is longer which is not good for me being 5 feet tall. Though I love the style in the back, the fitting is odd :(

When I first saw this design I thought "why would anyone want to carry stuff in their boobs?!" but once I started training for a marathon and realized I'd have to carry 5 gels on race day, it started to make more sense. I took a chance on this and ordered up a size based on reviews, and it fits perfectly (I'm 5'2", 108 lbs, 34A, generally a size 4 across the board in lulu. I got this tank in a 6.) It's supportive enough for me and the body lightly drapes, not too baggy or too tight. I carried 2 gels in it for my 15 miler yesterday and everything stayed put... I barely realized they were there. Yes, I felt silly carrying stuff in my bra, but when you are going for the long haul, it's nice to have the option. I also love the back... it's nice and open so you stay cooler during those long runs. Definitely worth the purchase if you need to carry more than you can fit in your shorts pockets!
