Run: Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Scoop
Of anything that I have ever bought here so far this is the only product I have not been completely happy with. Purchased this for running but unfortunately isn't holding up. I have only worn it a handful of times and there is an area on the front where the material it starting to separate where its thinner. Since I bought it I've been very careful to put this shirt in a delicates bag when washing and keep it away from anything that could pick it in any way(the fabric seemed thin to begin with). For the money this shirt has not lasted anywhere near as long as it should have.

PLEASE - give us more colours to choose from!!!
I have many of the swiftly tech shirts - long and short sleeves - however, the scoop is my fave! It sits perfectly below your collarbone, giving you just enough exposure so that you dont suffocate and is less restrictive than the regular swiftly tech long sleeve.
I have been waiting patiently to stock up on more and still, no new colours... PLEASE LLL, dont forget about the "scoops" in your next batch!

perfect workout top
Overall I love this top. It's super cute and I can wear it for an indoor workout without getting too hot, plus it doesn't show pit stains! Only downside is that it has snagged a few times so you just have to be careful when wearing it.

More colors :)
I really like this tank, especially for running. I don't wear this tank for dance however, because it will sometimes snag if I do. I own one swiftly tech long sleeve with regular neckline and one swiftly tech scoop neck. The scoop neck is so much more flattering, but they don't make it in enough colors! I love the vibrant pinks and blues they have in the swiftly long sleeve tops and only wish they made them in the scoop neck style.

Don't let it touch anything
I love the fit and comfort of this fabric. You just have to be so careful wearing it making sure not to touch anything. I'm afraid to wear a jacket over it or hug anyone with it on because it snags on everything. It is so flattering on though. I have two children and I only wear it when they are in school. Their little fingernails will snag it. The straps on my festival bag snag it. Bummer. It spends more time in the drawer than it does on because I'm afraid to ruin it.

26.2 and still smiling!
After a last minute realization that the weather for the NYC Marathon was going to be cooler than I had expected, I went out and bought this top to wear under my t-shirt. I did this despite the age-old rule "do not do anything different on race day." But, since I had done many of my training runs in my Run Swiftly short sleeve t (which I also love), I went against the advice, and bought the last long sleeve in my size at the Union Square location. The shirt was perfect -- no chafing, no pulling, and kept me warm enough throughout the race. I do not know how or why I waited this long to buy a long sleeve. Thanks Lulu for another great product!

I'll be honest: I have an older version of this shirt (the non-scoop version) in black. It still looks perfect. I thought that most of the reviews complaining about snags were probably from people who didn't take proper care of the shirt.
But then it happened to me.
I bought this shirt in purple in the summer. It only recently got cool enough to wear it, so I've only worn it three times. And it's already snagged in multiple places.
To be clear, I wear this shirt to run. I don't wear it to lounge in, I don't wear a fuel belt, I don't have long nails, and I don't wear rings. When I wash it, I place it in a delicates lingerie bag either on its own or with the other Swiftly shirt - never with anything else, and certainly never with anything that has zippers. So HOW exactly this shirt snagged to this degree is beyond me. It clearly must have touched something that disagreed with it at some point in time, but I've gone well above and beyond what one should do to care for *workout wear* - the only other option seems to be not to wear it at all (unless it snagged inside my drawer? Then I guess even that option doesn't help).
I took the shirt back to Lulu tonight and was told that they couldn't do anything because right now, the damage is just cosmetic. If the shirt gets holes in it (and let's face it, with snags like this, that's the inevitable end result), then they'll take it back - but not before. That seems a bit silly to me - I didn't pay $75 for a shirt to have it degrade before my eyes, even despite my best efforts to care for it. This is a quality control issue.
PS - please excuse the weird coloration in the photos. I'm using my cell phone camera and it's behaving strangely.

LOVE this top
So after reading a bunch of negative reviews, I decided to throw my two cents in. I actually bought this top and then returned it because of the bad reviews. a few months later I still really wanted it so I bought it. NO REGRETS, love this shirt. It is SO SO comfy and looks great. it's the perfect weight. I honestly cant say enough about this top. oh and the scoop neck is awesome. the regular one is a bit to close to my neck for me, the scoop neck is flattering and more comfortable in my opinion! LOVE swiftly tech. thanks LULU. more colors please :)

I am super bummed. I bought two of these tops, one in the orange and one blue. I have worn the blue four times and there are already lots of snags. For the price this shouldn't happen. Now I'm afraid to wear the orange one, have worn it once. Fits great, love the look but the fabric is terrible.

comfy but snags
I have always loved Lululemon's products and have never had a problem with them until I purchased this shirt. I have to admit the design is perfect and comfortable but the flaw is the fabric. The first time I wore this shirt was for about 4 hours and the shirt had 3 different snags and runs. I was really let down by the quality of the fabric because I had heard so many good things about this stylish shirt. I hope Lulu fixes this major flaw in the shirt
