Run: Swiftly Tech V Neck
My favorite Lulu tee
I have 6 of these shirts, all in different colors, and purchased the first one about 18 months ago. I am 5'9", 131lbs and size B cup. I have these shirts in a size 4 and they fit me well, are cool and comfortable. I work out 6 days per week (crossfit, gym, cycling, bootcamp) plus do yoga, and usually wear each shirt once every 1 to 2 weeks so they have been through a lot of washes! I generally just separate them out in a wash bag with other delicate items, wash on a warm cycle and hang to dry. I've never had any issues with piling, etc.
Would be great to see Lululemon stock these shirts in more colors, like they do with the crew neck shirts. I find the crew necks too hot to work out in.

Awesome shirt.. but...
I can't bring myself to leave this top a bad review.. but I'm upset because after just a few washes, my green/mint one is showing some discoloration (see pics). What can I do about this, lulu? The fit and material is perfect. I always air dry my swiftly's (which is why it is a bit wrinkly in the pic) but the mint color is "yellowing" a bit, almost as if it has faded. What can I do?

perfect for running
I have a few of these shirts in different neck styles. The V is my favourite. The higher neck lines emphasize the bust, which, with a sports bra, I don't need! The V neck is perfect. I have two different purple ones, love that colour! Hoping for some bright pink!

Great Fit But Too Delicate
I love the fit of the scoop and v-neck swiftlys. They look great. But after wearing this to a few classes at my gym and washing it three times, I've encountered some quality problems. First of all, when it gets sweaty (which workout gear should), it stretches out. Second of all, it's so delicate that you have to baby it. After a workout, I put all my sweaty clothes in separate compartment in my gym bag, come home, and wash the sweaty stuff. When my light colored swiftly is sweaty and in my bag with other clothes, dye from other fabrics ALWAYS bleeds on it. So far I've been able to stain stick it out, but its annoying. You have to basically quarantine this shirt once it's sweaty and wash it with a few light colored delicate items. Totally not convenient for workout clothing, especially for someone who works out 4x a week like I do.

I LOVE this top, but after wearing it less than 10 times, washing it by hand and hanging it to dry, I found a pull in the material down the front of the shirt. Very disappointed as I love Lulu and have many items that have always been fabulous. I would advise caution if you consider buying this due to the diligent care my top received and it pulled.

I bought this in pink and love the color. I always take a size 6 and for some reason this extremely small and unable to wear it. It runs slimmer that normal.

sexy sporty top
This V Neck top is awesome! I am a 32D, 5'3" 113lbs. The size 4 fits really well. I cannot wear the scoop T or crew neck because it makes me look too chesty. The V Neck has the right amount of plunge to fit my chest, but fitted everywhere else. I wear these tops for everything!!! They do not bag or stretch out. They are feminine yet sporty. The colors are great...wish they came in the same colors as the scoop. They wash really well. I REALLLYYY want these tops to come in long sleeve...PLEASE!

Soft, comfortable, and keeps me cool!
I don't understand all the negative reviews! I haven't had a single snag in mine, and I feel like I'm not even particularly careful with it.
I bought mine in a 6, but I could have gone down or up. I like that the 6 is not too clingy but not too loose either so I went with that. If you want a more traditional t-shirt fit I would size up for a looser feel.
For reference, I am about 5'4",128 lbs, 32D, and in street clothes I generally wear a 4.

worth being a little careful
Swiftlies are so lightweight and comfortable. I have 3 crew neck LS and 3 v-neck SS, and so far no snags. The fabric feels a little delicate, but that's what makes them so great for work outs/runs. I don't wear them casually, and avoid wearing bags/purses/anything with velcro with them. I've worn them for weight lifting, and again, no trouble with snags. These shirts are super soft, and I never notice feeling sweaty or gross when I'm in them. They are perfect on their own or as a base layer.
I find them to be TTS, and take them in a 6 (5'5" ~130lbs). I sized up and bought 8s in two of the crew neck LS and find I don't reach for them as often as they are a little baggy/long. Any time I see a color I like come to WMTM I grab it! The SS v-necks are a very flattering version of this shirt.

Cute shirt, too delicate
I love these lulu shirts. They wick and don't smell, and the fit is great. The orange color is lovely (especially with a tan) but this shirt is more delicate than the crew neck style. For an athletic shirt, this snags and pills too easily, and after wearing it a few times, it look shabby. Love these shirts but am disappointed with the quality.
