Techni-Cool Long Sleeve
Love it, but colors have differing softness
I originally bought this in the light flare and loved it so much that I went back and ordered it in black as well.
However, I was very disappointed when my black top arrived as the material was scratchy feeling. MUCH different from the uber-soft feel of the flare, which is the main reason that I love this top so much.
I'm going to keep the black, but I definitely don't love it like I love the flare.

Great Top! Love It!
I purchased this top in Light Flare after looking at it for some time and watching them sell out.....luckily for me I took the plunge when supplies were replenished because this top is awesome to throw over a CRB or any other tank as a layer for the gym and the color is so vibrant and better in person! I was hesitant to get the 8 (which is what I usually wear in tanks) as I was planning on using this as a layering piece, but went with it because it's classed as loose fit (I usually go for a 10 in their jackets for layering room) and I wasn't disappointed! It fits perfectly with a little room but am planning on getting it in black in a size 10 as a staple for my Lulu wardrobe as I will wear this year round but wouldn't mind more of an off the shoulder baggy look. It's very flattering for anyone with a little "Tummy" issue or for those that are larger up top (like me). For reference I am 5'6", 155lb, muscular build, 34DD and could wear either an 8 or a 10 in this top.

I really like this shirt, Not boxy at all in my regular size 8. I got the black and have washed it only once thus far with no problems, but could see little holes happening because the fabric is so soft and light. I like the weight of it (very light yet warm) for when I am teaching yoga and lounging around the house. Usually wear a Power Y underneath. I love the loungy tops lulu - keep them coming!

Love it but...
I ordered this piece in black after reading different reviews saying the fit was boxy. Contrary to those reviews, this top fits so well and the fabric is so soft. I was so in love with it that I ordered the one in light flare as well.
On the 3rd wash of my black top, BAAAAM, I noticed a hole, which is why I'm giving it 2 stars.
The fabric is super soft, and the fit is great, but paying $78 for a piece that gets a hole on its 3rd wash doesn't add up.

This is the perfect weight long sleeve, so soft and comfy, and a very flattering cut. It is really thin fabric so I'm not totally surprised ppl are having problems with it but that said I just wore it around all weekend with my kids and dog and haven't had any problems. It's not a sweatshirt, it's just a layer. I got it for warm ups as I was tired of all my skin-tight long sleeves. I have the u turn and swiftly and while flattering I sometimes find those constricting. This is amazing for warm ups, lighter than air but still removes any chill in the studio. It is pricey. If I didn't love it so much I might have taken a star off for that. I also would have liked more color options. I got the black and it's great but just one more black top. Lulu is missing on colors lately. Also, if you're between sizes, get the lower size.

Love this shirt. I sized up and it fits loose. What I don't love are the 2 holes I found in the shirt. They are tiny but I can only imagine what will happen after a couple of wears and washes. And who can afford a $78 shirt with holes?? Thank goodness I didn't take the tags off, this one is going back!!

I love this light weight long sleeve shirt! It is super comfy and great for wearing it to and from my workouts. I also throw it on during my yoga warm ups and cool downs. I really like the fit, it lays well over my tee or tank and is perfect for post-workout errands!

Hole after 1 Wear/Wash :(
I live in LULU and wouldn't dream of wearing anything else. I loved this shirt from the moment it came in the mail, from the fit to the color; However, after ONE wear (*maybe* 2 HOURS)and wash, this shirt has developed a HOLE!!!! I pulled it out to wear this morning and I absolutely got sick to my stomach when I saw the hole. I love the color and fit, but I can not war something with a hole in the center chest! For $78 dollars, this is my first big disappointment! What's the deal with the holes in this shirt, LULU? I've seen the same complaint. How can I get this fixed...I didn't buy a $78 shirt to wear once...I'm absolutely devastated :(

Now I understand the complaints
I am a HUGE Lulu fan, I even own stock, so I've been surprised of late for the number of complaints I see regarding quality. Specifically, in regard to snagging, holes, pilling, etc. I LOVED this shirt online and when I opened it last week, I was very excited with the color and fit. I have worn this a total of 2 times for approximately 4 total hours and just to lounge around my house in. I've attached a photo to this review. It's a bit hard to see, but a hole has already developed on the chest. I have no recollection of snagging the shirt and it has never been washed. For $78 dollars, I would definitely expect a higher quality material and shirt. Pretty bummed out Lulu.

I tried this on a whim today at my local LLL. It was "marked down" to $69 but all I saw was that little purple marked down sticker and that was enough to get me to try it on. I'm glad I did!! I usually take a size 6 in tanks and 8 in jackets, but I tried this on in a 10 and it's an amazing oversized, baggy, comfy fit. For reference, I'm 5'4" with a short torso and long legs, 145 lbs, 34D. Because I have a short torso this was actually extremely flattering on me! I don't need to layer for it to cover my stomach, but I could if I wanted to. I'm wearing it right now sitting around the house and I'm really tempted to order it in the other colors. I doubt that I'd work out in it, but I will definitely wear it over my tanks at the gym while I'm warming up, and to/from the gym. Plus, I really think I could wear this out with friends, it looks that good on me.... So I guess I can justify the $78 on what is essentially a T-shirt :).
