why we made this
Snuggly soft and cozy warm - we're talking about this top, not cuddling into bed. Made from lightweight, breathable Vitasea fabric, this long sleeve is perfect for warming up and cooling down in the studio (and catching a quick nap if we put our mat in the sunny spot).

least favorite lulu long sleeve!
I am a lulu addict! I have tried every single lulu long sleeve and this has got to be my least favorite! I ordered it on line thinking it was going to be a warm well made wear with everything type of top! When it came in I was very surprised to find it about paper thin! CRAZY!!! I decided to give it a try and the seaming was horrible and their was chafing after the first wash. Definitely not worth $68! Horrible quality and horrible shirt. Sorry lulu, step up the quality please!

Incredibly Flattering and Comfortable!
This tee runs a close second to the Devotion long sleeve (my favorite). It is very fitted, but for me ran TTS (8). This tee is incredibly slimming, and soft. Heathered gray is one of my favorite colors too. Washes and wears well. Has been washed a few times, and I have no issues with seams....yet.

I have a hard time taking this off to wash because it's so comfy! Best long sleeved tee to layer. Form fitted yet stretchy. I wear a size 6 and its perfect (tight in chest, arms yet slightly loose fitting over stomach). For reference I'm 5'5 120lbs. Would highly recommend this!

odd man out here!
I had my eye on the black hyper stripe for awhile but the reviews concerned me. By the time I made up my mind it was sold out in store and online. Low and behold it came back online and I ordered it in the knick of time. I had seen it in the store so I already knew it was thin but that's what I liked. I live in a warmer climate. It is priced a little high for what it is - basically a tissue t-shirt I will agree on that. What I do not agree on is all the reviews saying it ran small. I wear a mix of 4's and 6's on the top (5'3 115lbs 32b), ordered this in a 6. It is looser then I'd like. I wish there had been a 4 but that's okay. I am keeping it.
I have not worn it yet- hopefully I won't have pilling issues.

I ordered this tank online, tried it on as soon as it came and really liked it. It fits TTS and is nice and soft...a little thinner than I was hoping but not really that sheer. I then went to actually wear it the next day and there were already holes along the seams on both arms (down near the wrists too where it isn't even tight!). I took a closer look at the seams and they are not good quality, if you pull the fabric tight it leaves a big gap down the seam! I've got an old devotion tee that has the same seams and those don't separate at all when you pull the fabric tight. Definitely not worth the $70 price tag!

very poor quality
this shirt was love at first sight, soft and cozy, with long sleeves that i like... BUT!!!!
wore it one time and sleeves seems came apart, had to fix my self, as I ordered this shirt on line and would cost me fortune to ship it back...
washed it a couple of times (hang dry) and the shirt looks like i had it for years, washed out, color is already faded looks almost gray.
as much as i was looking forward to this shirt, i am very very disapointed with the quality.

Cute fall long sleeve
First off, I am a big fan of Vitasea. Love how it feels and fits on the body.
I just got this in the mail this morning (Hyper Stripe Blue Moon) and overall am happy with my purchase. Normally I would give a five star rating as I have only once ever had to return something and it was a sports bra that was way too small. I deducted one star for two reasons with this top.
1) I am not fussy about the cut of the collar. This top tends to be narrower across the shoulders and for anyone broad, this would not be a good choice for you. It is not a deal breaker for me, but would have preferred a more open (Boat Neck) collar instead.
2) The fit is a bit smaller than I expected. I am typically always a 6 in tops and pants so went with my usual after speaking to an educator. It does fit me well, but I could have even gone with a size 8 and had a little bit extra room and still a great fit.
My opinion, this is a cute Fall top and I would still recommend it, but watch the sizing. If you fall between sizes, go up and certainly don't size down. I have a few long sleeves of Vitasea that I actually sized down to a 4 in, but if I had in this one, it would look like I was wearing a kids top. I am still debating on ordering the Hyper Stripe Afterglow but perhaps will size up to the 8 if I do.
Overall, a great purchase but certainly not one of my favorites from LuLu. For reference I am 5'8" tall and 140lbs and went with my usual size 6 and it is fitted. I am still happy with it though and if you are on the fence about it, order up as it's a great little number despite a few technical issues.

Pilling in first hour of wearing
I love how this shirt looks, the cut, the fit, etc. I was so excited to wear it. Within less than an hour of wearing it the underarm area pilled- not a little, a lot. I had worn it to a yoga teacher training and could not change out of it. Had to keep discretely pulling the pills off. I wonder why after all that has happened with fabric and lululemon-- that fabrics are not better tested. As I went to post this I saw the same thing has happened to others. I don't even have the tags because I loved it when I put it on and threw the tags/packing slip etc. out. I didn't think I'd have to worry about fabric quality issues after what has already transpired.

just right for fall
I like the slim, yet not skin tight fit of this shirt. In the fall and winter, I always have trouble finding the right layers for my workouts, as I get either too hot or too cold. For me, this shirt is the perfect weight and the material feels nice on my skin. I felt it was a bit pricey, so I am relieved that I like it.
